"Together they spark a flame that will burn bright for a lifetime, hand in hand, hearts entwined, forever bound as one."

Get ready to make some magic with an Engagement, Couples, or surprise wedding Proposal Session. As a photographer, I am passionate about capturing the true essence of your relationship and telling your love story through creative, breathtaking images.

Shooting a combination of authentic and emotive candids, as well as bold, beautiful, and creative portraits, my goal is to create a set of images that cinematically tells your unique love story.

If you’re ready to embark on an exciting adventure that will showcase the raw and vibrant nature of your love story, let’s chat.  I look forward to the opportunity of working with you!

Authentic Love Session

Offering up to 1 hour of coverage, this session provides a gorgeous set of images showcasing the incredible connection between the two of you. I live very close to sandy Georgian Bay Beaches, so the session can be here or within 45 minutes driving of Tiny, ON, L0L2T0, without travel fees. I know lots of great locations in the southern Georgian Bay, Barrie, and Orillia areas, so if you need a recommendation, just let me know. I'm not afraid of doing what it takes to get the images you want. I've been in boats, waist deep in water, in an airplane, on ATV's and more.

Your raw files are the equivalent of a film negative. These are the files you want to use if you are doing any significant editing to your images. They are the files I use when doing any Professional edits. They are now available at an extremely attractive add-on price of $150 for an Engagement, Proposal, or Couples Session.
