Toronto Wedding Photographer - Latvian Cultural Centre Wedding

Distillery District Wedding – Latvian Cultural Center Wedding

Kit and Amanda wanted to celebrate Amanda’s Latvian heritage and decided on the Latvian Cultural Centre for their wedding ceremony and reception.  Choosing March for their date as a way to get family together before the summer. Kit and the guys decided the Mill St Brewpub in the distillery district was the perfect spot for them to relax before meeting up with the rest of the wedding party for pictures before the ceremony. When Amanda and her bridal party arrived […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – AirBnB Wedding Venue

You don’t have to have your wedding in a ‘wedding venue’ …more and more I’m photographing weddings in unique locations like cottages, farms, family property in the woods and places like restaurant patios, pubs and now AirBnB’s Kaitlyn and Patrick found a great AirBnB with enough space and isolation to host their intimate wedding of about 50 ppl.  The AirBnB has been used for Yoga Retreats, Corporate Workshops and Cooking show production for TV.  Needless to say the surroundings were […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Fort Henry Wedding

Pearl Jam brings people together.  I’ve never met a more friendly group of concertgoers than any contingent of Pearl Jam fans I’ve run into at numerous shows over the last 20-25 years.  Laura and James are an example of this …their inquiry stated they were very eager to meet up for a pint and to talk about PJ as they were both big fans also.  Unfortunately I was away in Punta Cana shooting my last wedding of 2017 when they […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – backyard wedding

An RCMP officer escorts you down the aisle …and it’s not leading to a squad car because you’ve had too much to drink and are causing a disturbance at the wedding …it’s your dad and your mom can’t stop weeping as she watching you walk up towards your husband who’s holding back his emotions because he knows you’ll blow your ‘cool cover’ if he whimpers even slightly. Phew – they did it – they made it down the aisle and […]

Toronto Wedding Photographer – Drake one-fifty Wedding

A lot of my business is referral based which is a total thrill for me to read “you shot my friend’s wedding and we loved the photos.” in the inquiry when it arrives.  So when a bridesmaid from a previous wedding contacts me she not only already knows my work but my personality also so it’s usually a great fit for both of us.  Clare and Justin were no exception to this rule of thumb.  We’d worked together at Kait […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Sandbanks Wedding

Sarah and Joel live in Toronto and had their mind set on a Prince Edward County Wedding with a cottage vibe to bring their friends and family down for a weekend.  They found a wonderful spot on AirBnB near the Sandbanks beach with enough space for a backup plan for their ceremony indoors in a renovated garage / workshop complete with a bar! I arrived to find Joel writing his wedding speech, refining his vows with friends and family around […]

Toronto Wedding Photography – Le Select Bistro Wedding

Alli and Kyle had planned their wedding in Prince Edward County but a couple of shifts in planning needed to be made to accommodate their needs and a desire to scale back their wedding to a more intimate gathering so it was off to Toronto for the day to Le Select Bistro. We started the day at the Hilton Toronto where the ladies had a full on dance party in their suite while the gentleman took a more subdued approach […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Fields on West Lake Wedding

You know you’ve found the right people to work with when they change their wedding date to work with you.  After some rescheduling and shifting a bunch of other components of their wedding around we nailed down a meeting for pints, talk about the Blue Jays and to discuss what kind of party their wedding was going to be. Alex and Jarrod are superhuman.  Both have had some serious health issues in the past (Alex) and Jarrod in recent years […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer - Four Points Sheraton Wedding

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Four Points Sheraton Wedding

Renée and Tomasz’s wedding day was a short one (for me).  They’re not centre of attention type of people and wanted to keep their wedding coverage simple.  I love smaller weddings, and especially on Thanksgiving weekend (a great excuse to have a bunch of family and friends eat and drink together). We started our day arriving at Our Lady Of Lourdes Parish where a heartfelt ceremony culminated with Renée’s smile beaming from the signing table as her ladies wept in […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Fields on West Lake Wedding

Who says a destination wedding has to be somewhere tropical?  When you live in The Yukon, Fields on West Lake in November *IS* tropical so why not bring your family and friends down and have a Prince Edward County fall wedding in exactly like Joanna and Joel did. Ok – not ALL of their family lives in The Yukon, only they do; so getting married in Wellington was not that far for everyone except the Bride and Groom :) We […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Yasmin and Shaun – Punta Cana Wedding

Yasmin and Shaun contacted me for an engagement session before their wedding in Punta Cana.  After working together they asked if I’d be interested in tagging along to cover their wedding in the Dominican Republic at The Riu Palace Bavaro.  I’m never afraid to travel so I hopped on board that plane with their family and closest friends and off we went to the sun and fun of the resort. a 44 degree wedding day in the middle of November […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Glen Lawrence Golf Club Wedding

Kristin and Jay are a fun loving couple who enjoy the Toronto Blue Jays and beer (ok – Kristin doesn’t like beer that much as you can see in one of the photos below – but wine is a different story) They decided to hitch up their wagons to the Glen Lawrence Golf Club on a nice Summer’s day …

Napanee Wedding Photographer – Tara and Chris’ Backyard Wedding

2017 was the year of “we have to switch venues at the last minute” weddings …Tara and Chris were wedding #5 that switched venues with reasons ranging from venues being sold to venues being closed to venues being double booked.  Everyone rolled with it and had amazing weddings.  It’s proof that your “ideal plan” may not happen but all that matters if you get married and have some drinks and laughs. Tara and Chris did just that – in their […]

kingston wedding photographer - backyard wedding

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Alison and Dennis Backyard Wedding

From the moment Alison emailed me her outline of their wedding plan when inquiring if I was available for their date, I was interested in being part of their day. “We are planning for a mostly outdoors wedding taking advantage of their extra side lot for a tent and old wishing well for the ceremony. Our guest list will likely be about 100. We live in NYC but are so excited to get married in my home town in my […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Waring House Wedding – Jessica and Justin

Hailing from the United States, Jessica and Justin decided that Prince Edward County was the spot for their destination wedding.  Jessica’s family has a cottage nearby and they’ve always loved the area so why not get married there! During our Skype meeting we bounced ideas back and forth for extending wedding coverage because we knew we’d not get a chance to do any Prince Edward County engagement photography and we figured shooting their rehearsal dinner would be an awesome way […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Boldt Castle Wedding

When Brittany and Dan (#danandbrittmakeitlegit2017 on instagram) contacted me about photographing their Boldt Castle Wedding I sorta squealed along the lines of whenever we get ice cream for Emmett (I also squeal then, but so does he).  They’d decided to come down from Burlington to get married at Boldt Castle in Alexandria Bay and have their reception at the Delta Waterfront Kingston. We met early at Chic Hair for bridal party hair/makeup.  Early is 8am because it can take a while […]

Napanee Wedding Photographer – Carrie and Julian’s Farm Wedding

Carrie and Julian live on a farm just north of Napanee and chose that location for their Napanee Farm Wedding.  Julian had grown up on a farm with lots of animals and chores and his beloved tractor, Henry.  Henry was going to be a guest at the wedding I was informed during our time together shooting their engagement photos on and around their farm (while being chased by chickens).  They showed me the barn and discussed their plans for renovating […]

Port Hope Wedding Photographer – Penryn Mansion Wedding

“Things happen for a reason” is, and has always been, part of my life’s mantra.  How you roll with it is what determines your happiness in life.  Besides, a venue change 6 months before your wedding date isn’t that stressful if you don’t let it be.  Plus, it can lead to something even better than you’d originally planned!  Breanne and Dustin had to switch up their wedding venue when their original choice was sold and decided to not hold weddings […]

napanee wedding photographer - doghouse studios wedding

Napanee Wedding Photographer – Doghouse Studios Wedding – Kate and Steph

To have to change your wedding venue a few weeks before your big day can be stressful …it seems to be a theme these last couple of years that venue changes happen on short notice.  Kate and Steph rolled with the punches and dealt with a near flood near their ceremony spot in Springside Park in Napanee.  The rain held off (another theme this year is rain) and they said their teary I do’s under the bandshell and partied at […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Kerry and Alex – Ivy Lea Wedding

I’m down to my last batch weddings of the season so I figured it was time I started blogging 2017 weddings!  My intention was to do the same as I did last year and blog a wedding shortly after it was completed but the best laid plans are easily washed away when you get 10 weddings into the season and forget what you wanted to do because you’re so into editing that you just want your couple to get their […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Amy and Ryan’s Farm Wedding

When your farm has a horse field, a quarry and a beautiful barn you have your wedding there.  Amy and Ryan spend a few weeks preparing their quarry area for the ceremony location and it was an absolutely perfect spot for them to share their wedding day with friends and family.  The clouds loomed but the rain that threatened us all day never did start. Here’s a few of my favorite images from their day:

Raelyn and Greg are rock climbers and general outdoorsy type people so getting married at Cataraqui Creek Conservation Authority was the perfect place for them.  Here’s a few of my favorites from the short afternoon ceremony and reception:

Peterborough Wedding Photographer, Canadian Canoe Museum Wedding

Peterborough Wedding Photographer – Canadian Canoe Museum Wedding

Adrianne and Adam chose the Canadian Canoe Museum as their reception venue for its unique atmosphere and the historic nature of the contents.  Being from the US and now working and living in Canada, Adam had his family and friends arrive a few days before to tour the area and experience what Peterborough and area has to offer for tourists.  A destination wedding doesn’t always have to be the Dominican or Mexico. We started the day at the Riverview Zoo […]

Ottawa Wedding Photographer – Chelsea and Rob Farm Wedding

I met Chelsea and Rob at a wedding a couple of years ago where Rob was a groomsman (Stephanie and Colin’s Wedding was also an insanely awesome party).  We hit it off talking about bands and beer (Rob’s a singer in a band and also a beer lover) and they said “When we get married you’re our guy!”  …fast forward a year and he popped the question and she sent me an email asking if I was available (well – […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Trail Estate Winery Elopement

Rachel and Gavin decided to change up their wedding plans and surprise family and friends with a St. Patrick’s Day wedding at Trail Estate Winery in Prince Edward County and dinner at The Waring House Gavin’s love of wine as a Professor of Winemaking at Niagara College lead them to Prince Edward County for their wedding and they selected a small craft winery as their location.  With both of them sharing personal vows including some questionable decision made by each […]

Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada Award – Winter 2017 Competition!

I bust my ass at every wedding to make something special for my couple on their big day.  When you give your photographer time, and trust their vision to create something unique with you, you’ll end up with wedding photos that aren’t just snapshots and art for your livingroom walls :) I concentrate on capturing natural moments, telling your story through those emotional connections between you and your guests.  It’s my goal to show you the wedding day that you […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Sarah and Tyler

Summer 2016 will go down on record as one of the driest summers ever; but when it rained, it realllllly rained (and mostly on Saturdays).  Sarah and Tyler weren’t letting rain stop their dreams of having an outdoor wedding on their property (uhhh the log cabin THEY built with their own hands!) and making it a party. They weren’t kidding when they said they wanted a party …

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Picton Farm Wedding – Elise and Neil

This summer will go down as one of the driest in our memories.  When he rained it was needed badly so no one complained; even if it was on their wedding day.  Neil and Elise decided to get married on Neil’s family farm in Prince Edward County where they spend their summers.  Camping, having a fire listening to someone play guitar, swimming and walks in the woods are among their favorite things to do on here so they incorporated almost everything into […]

Brighton Wedding Photographer – Timber House Wedding – Meredith and Adam

Adam and Meredith are travelers and decided on a travel theme for their wedding.  While on their adventures around the world they stop at statues and photograph themselves recreating the poses of each statue.  Those statues and their poses served as the method to get them to kiss during their reception… The Airline Attendants (Emcees) guided everyone on board the plane to pick a photo, re-enact the scene and if they were successful the bride and groom would kiss. A […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Rob and Emily’s Wolfe Island Wedding

I’ve lived in Kingston for the a little more than 20 years now and Rob was one of the first people I met in the local music scene when I moved here… Playing one of my first shows as a Kingstonian we had him on monitors and oh boy was it awesome.  We’ve worked a bunch of shows together since and he’s been the monitor eng and drum tech for the Trews for the last 10-ish years.  When they asked me […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Jen and Adam

Prince Edward County offers so much for people planning their wedding.  From a photographer’s point of view it has everything we could want – history, greenery, water and wine.  oooooh wine. Jen and Adam decided their big day would be held at one of the many amazing vineyards in PEC, Casa Dea Estates. Here’s a few of my favorites to tell the story of their day…

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Brittany and Dylan Black Bear Ridge Wedding

I’ve known the Bride’s sister for a couple of years (she’s also a wedding planner) so when I was asked to shoot her baby sister’s wedding I was pretty stoked (also – Sarah caught the pregnant 6-7 months ago so I really wanted to see her in the bridesmaid dress with her big bump) We met up early their parents place and had some laughs (mostly at Sarah’s expense) and hit up Britt’s Godparent’s house for the ceremony. It was a […]

Prince Edward County Wedding Photographer – Isaiah Tubbs Resort Wedding

Get married in May …it won’t be as hot as July and August …I’ve heard THAT before. The hottest day of the year so far was not going to bother these two as they were giggles and smiles all day at Isaiah Tubbs Resort for their Prince Edward County Wedding. Shane started the day with a series of notes to Vicky delivered by a bridesmaid at specific times before the ceremony …each one a sweet note with impeccable handwriting (I was assured […]

Kingston Wedding Photographer – Nicola and Jeff @ Ban Righ Hall

When I met Nicola and Jeff last year (conveniently on the Toucan Patio – the sight of many of their dates I was told) we hit it off pretty quickly over a pint (maybe two).  They said they were going to have a live band at their wedding and were both former cheerleaders and avid swing dancers so I should expect a pretty hopping dance floor.  Uhhh… they weren’t joking about that either! From their first look before the ceremony the smiles […]

Napanee Wedding Photographer – New Years Eve @ Doghouse Studios

New Year’s Eve is always a party and if you add having a wedding to that party you end up with an event you’ll never forget.  When I met with Tiffany and Jay more than a year before their wedding, they’d arrived ahead of me and had already ordered a pitcher of beer (already earning my love).  I knew I was going to enjoy hearing their ideas on how to make a ruckus at Doghouse Studios on NYE.  There was talk […]
