Frances & Beth’s Sneak Peeks
I had the pleasure of photographing Frances and Beth’s Holland Marsh Winery wedding last weekend – and it was so much fun! They lucked into a beautiful, sunny day – even though the week before the weather forecast was predicting thunderstorms!
Frances and Beth are both so kind and wonderful, I just loved being able to document their special day for them!
They had an all-female wedding party (girl power, woooo!), which included Frances’ daughters, and Beth’s nieces. All five of them (and their spouses!) helped out with everything, and helped create the perfect day for Frances and Beth.
Congrats Frances and Beth!

Jeff, Louise, Olive & River’s Spring Family Photos
Another fantastic photo session with Jeff, Louise and their adorable children!
Jeff and Louise are longtime clients (and now, friends!) of mine, and our photo sessions are always a blast. Not to mention, their 3-year-old Olive, is THE BEST toddler I have ever photographed in my life, and she has thus earned herself the title of my Photo BFF. (<3 you BFF!!)
We photographed at my least-favourite time of the day (Noon! Bleh!), because we had to coordinate between another photoshoot I was doing, and little River’s naptime. So we worked with what we had!
Sadly, the ENTIRE “P” family was not present at this photoshoot – their three cats, and one dog, who clearly have very busy schedules, could not attend. However, I will include their cuteness in this blogpost, because…. I can 🙂

On a rainy, dreary, gray day in Burlington, I photographed Lauren and Greg’s engagement photos, but ALSO got to meet their new horse-baby Avie! Who by the way, has a beautiful smile.
Avie is an 8-year-old retired racehorse, and he was AWESOME during our photoshoot! (Avie is the horse on the right in the photos below, but the horse on the left was very interested in being in photos also!)
Near the end of the photoshoot, Lauren and Greg did a quick outfit change…
The rainy weather had no bearing on this equine engagement session – the photos turned out great! It was actually difficult to choose which ones to put in this blog post.
Lauren & Greg – I can’t wait for your wedding in September!

Dexter is one year old, and was adopted from a rescue organization by Alexis & Todd. After having him for only 6 days, they discovered that Dexter had a Femoral Head Fracture (a broken growth plate) and requires surgery to either place a pin connecting the femur to the hip, or remove the femoral head altogether (they chose the latter for better long-term results). Due to several circumstances, Dexter’s injury went unnoticed by the rescue organization.
As a family, Alexis and Todd were aware of the risks of adoption, but of course no one is prepared to have to be faced with such a huge financial undertaking only one week in! They immediately fell in love with Dexter, and “returning” him was never an option. They immediately started thinking of ways of how they could raise money for his expensive surgery, as Dexter deserves to live a pain-free and active life!
I decided to help Alexis and Todd raise money for Dexter by creating “Dog Day for Dexter”, where people could bring their dogs out to have some photos done in exchange for a donation to Dexter’s surgery.

Here are a few of the wonderful pups who came out to support Dexter!
I have some Newmarket wedding photos to share today! Corrie and Justin got married at the ever-popular Madsen’s Greenhouse in Newmarket. I’ve thought long and hard about how to describe the “theme” of Corrie and Justin’s wedding. There was foliage, birdcages, birch tree decorations, leaves, lavender… after much thought I’ve decided to describe it as an “Enchanted Forest” theme. It was truly beautiful! (Well done, Corrie!).
How They Met
Now here is something you don’t hear too often… Corrie and Justin met while they were on vacation in Cuba! Justin was there with his buddy Alex, and Corrie was there with her 2 friends (Lauren and Kristen). Lauren wanted to meet Alex because they both went to Brock University. They all ended up hanging out together for the rest of the vacation, and they had a blast together! Corrie and Justin both thought that they had a lot of fun together, but they assumed they would never see each other again once they got back to Canada.
When they got home from Cuba, they added each other on Facebook and exchanged phone numbers. Since Corrie worked at a golf course, and Justin loves golf, Corrie invited Justin to go golfing. It was the summer, so they also attended various pool parties and outdoor get-togethers before they actually started dating.
It wasn’t until 8 years later that Justin popped the question! It was the weekend after Corrie’s birthday and Justin had planned an outing for that weekend, which was a complete surprise. Corrie came home from work and was greeted with flowers and wine. It took a while to notice, eventually Corrie noticed that her adorable dog Ava was wearing a new custom dog tag, which asked if Corrie wanted to marry Justin. Of course Corrie said yes! We celebrated by doing a waterfall tour and visiting the Eugenia waterfalls and a couple others, and exploring the outdoors for the day. Corrie said it was perfect!
The Bride & Groom!
Once Corrie and Justin were all pretty, they opted to do a First Look so they could maximize the time with their guests after the ceremony. After that we went right into bride & groom photos. I must say, these two are fantastic in front of a camera! I don’t think I’ve ever shot so many bride & groom photos in such a short period of time!
It was a perfect day to have an outdoor ceremony!
Here’s where I will show you a bit of what I’m calling the “Enchanted Forest” decor!
I LOVE how Corrie and Justin did their seating chart! The logs, the moss… love it! And the head table “Mr. & Mrs” sign? Come on – it’s perfect!
Reception tables! It all goes together so elegantly. And the birch-tree-candle favors (made by Justin!)? Adorable.
This is not a real cake (Corrie and her mom baked cupcakes!), but it is such a cool idea! If I remember correctly, Corrie told me her mom made this faux-cake out of pieces of birch tree, and then made a cute little cake topper with pinecones, decorating them to look like a bride and groom. And she even included a dog, to represent Corrie and Justin’s dog Ava!
I always love to see how couples can decorate the same venue differently!
All in all, it was a fantastic day, and I’m just thrilled I got to be a part of it!
