Mom describes these kids as her ‘little rockstars’ and it’s easy to see why. They’re so full of fun and personality. I knew these pictures were going to be a bit different when I heard Michael blasting Ozzy Osborne in the studio….for a session with a baby and toddler… These photos were a surprise for her boyfriend and family for Christmas, which is such a fantastic idea.

We are thrilled to announce that Shauna & Troy’s wedding was featured on the WedLuxe blog! As Canadian wedding professionals know, this is a huge honour – WedLuxe is one of the most prestigious and glamorous wedding publications in the country. We worked with an amazing team of vendors on this wedding, and most importantly a fantastic couple. Shauna & Troy were a dream to work with from start to finish, and their wedding was divine. I knew from the moment that I saw Shauna’s dress and her Christian Louboutins that her wedding was going to be luxurious.First, enjoy the photos as seen on WedLuxe, and then bonus images after!
Shauna & Troy met as neighbours. I want to share a quote from a letter that Shauna wrote to Troy after a couple of dates. She said to Troy “you light me up from the inside out”. That’s true love – that’s something amazing.
Every time we work with Kristina from Event Planning Headquarters we end up having a great time, eating cupcakes, and planning our next project (speaking of, another one is coming up soon!). This shoot from earlier this year has been featured on Style Me Pretty Canada, and Wedding Obsession! Kristina’s creativity is unparalleled, she pulled together so many unique elements for this shoot. The team had to deal with mosquito swarms and wind storms, but we pulled it together.

Jeff & Justin are adorable. They are so in love, and every time I spend time with them I have a big smile on my face. They were married at Robertson-Wesley United Church, and their pastor made a lovely speech about how proud he was to be a part of a gay marriage held in the church, and how happy he was that the United Church sees fit to celebrate all love and unity. We couldn’t agree more.
I hope they don’t mind me sharing something beautiful that they wrote about their wedding:
“We take exception to the fact that this day is all about us. Unlike countless other gay men, we have been graced by the unconditional love, support and acceptance of you, our friends and family. As individuals, you encouraged us to be true to ourselves and stood by us through this sometimes painful journey of self-discovery. You insisted that we learn to love ourselves. You have continued to nourish the loving relationship we have formed with enthusiastic acceptance. Without your love and support, we would not be half the men we are today. And so, you see, this day is actually all about you.
Love, Justin and Jeffrey ”
Justin is such a doll, he had a minor button crisis while getting ready but my sewing skills came in handy. He was pretty nervous prior to the ceremony, which only showed how much he loves Jeff.
Jeff has connections with the military and also the RCMP so there were quite a lot of uniforms at the ceremony. This was our first Arch of Swords!
See what I mean? Adorable! Thank you so much for including us you two! We had a fantastic time witnessing your marriage, and we wish you joy, love and happiness.
Sometimes people ask us what we do in the winter. I have to giggle a bit because there’s a bit of a misconception that wedding photographers don’t work in the winter (in Canada anyway). Shoots like this are just one of the answers to the question – our studio keeps us busy all year round with family photos, newborns, headshots, and other shoots. We love it!
I was so excited when Ashley announced she was expecting and have enjoyed seeing photos of their little one on Facebook. She’s around 5 months now, and we were fast friends. Congrats you three!
Alastair and I attended high school together, and I’m thrilled that he has a great career as a doctor, married a wonderful woman, and now has welcomed a beautiful baby daughter. It’s always great to see classmates achieving success. I welcomed Alastair’s family (including his mom and dad) into the studio while they were in town for a short visit.
