Photography is not just about taking photos. It's about celebrating and documenting this deeply personal and exciting journey that you and your fiancé are embarking on! It's important to choose a photographer who's vision and eye you fully trust to capture your relationship and dynamic.
I aim to provide an elevated and personal photography EXPERIENCE to my couples so that they can focus on being present and enjoying planning their wedding, knowing that I have the photography aspect taken care of.

Once you’ve filled out my contact form, I will send you my full pricing guide with all the information you need to know about the Wedding Experience. From there we will set up a video meeting to chat all about your wedding and begin planning out a photography timeline for your day.
Next, I will send you an online contract to confirm all of the details! To save your date, all you need to do is sign the contract and send over the retainer. Then we will be official and will begin planning your Engagement Session!
The Engagement Session is one of my favourite parts of the Wedding Experience because gives you the chance to get comfortable in front of my camera! I will be helping you style your outfits and choose locations, as well as guiding you on how to pose; all you need to do is have fun!
I will be sharing a sneak peek from your Engagement Session on instagram within 1 week, your blog post will be up in 2 weeks, and you will receive your full gallery in just 3 weeks! I recommend printing your favourite photos in an album/guestbook or a large canvas print to display outside of your reception!
One month before your wedding I will send you a questionnaire to get all the information about your wedding day plans. From there, we will come up with the perfect timeline to capture all the important moments on your wedding day!
In the week or two leading up to your day we will hop on a video call to go through the final timeline for your day to make sure we have all the details accounted for!
The day has finally come! I am so excited to capture all the important moments from you getting ready, to your first look and portraits, to celebrating your wedding with your family and friends!
Within 1 week of your wedding I will be sharing a sneak peek from your wedding on instagram. Within 2 weeks, I will be sharing my favourite images from your wedding day on my blog for you and your friends/family to enjoy!
Your edited gallery will be ready within 4 weeks of your wedding day! You can share your online gallery with all of your family and friends as well as download the high resolution photos straight to your computer or phone. Your online gallery will be accessible for 6 months after your wedding day.
If you have invested in an album, the next step will be choosing the images you’d like in your album. I will then design your album spreads and you'll get to approve the design online before I send it for printing. A wedding album is the best keepsake to remember your wedding day and to give your photos a forever home!
I absolutely love staying in touch with my couples after their wedding day. So many of my past couples and I have become friends, and I adore being able to continue capturing your special moments like anniversary and maternity photos!

Q: How early should I book you for my wedding?
A: I recommend reaching out as soon as you have your date set and have secured your venue. My calendar fills up about 6-12 months in advance. If you are deciding between a few dates, feel free to reach out to check my availability!
Q: Do you offer discounts?
A: I do not! I take a very limited number of weddings per year to ensure I'm able to provide each of my couples with a personal and elevated experience and my offerings are priced accordingly.
Q: Do you offer videography?

Q: Do you offer wedding albums?
A: I do! Having a physical wedding album is one of the best keepsakes from your wedding. Nothing beats being able to hold a wedding album in your hands to go through your memories together, 1 year or 10 years down the line! See what my albums look like here!
Q: Do you have a second photographer?
A: Yes, you have the option of adding a second photographer to your package. I recommend this if the bride and groom are getting ready at separate locations! I'll photograph the bride's getting ready and my second photographer will photograph the groom's. You can also book the second photographer for your reception if you'd like lots of photos of your guests!
Q: When would we photograph the engagement session?
A: Most of my couples do their engagement session about 3-6 months before their wedding day so they can fully enjoy the engagement session experience before wedding planning becomes too busy!
Q: Do you offer engagement sessions on their own?
A: I only offer engagement sessions as a part of my Wedding Experience, and do not offer them separately. I have a limited amount of dates available for engagement sessions and they are reserved for my wedding clients!
Q: Where are you located?
A: I am located in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada. If your wedding is outside of the GTA, please reach out and if I'm available to travel I can give you a travel quote!
