We had a blast meeting up with Stephanie & Calvin for their recent engagement session last weekend. The sun had found its place for the evening, beautifully painting the gorgeous, large garden, the Guelph Arboretum. Surrounded by trees and recreational hiking trails, the garden is where we find Stephanie and Calvin celebrating their engagement. Their laid back and relaxed personalities perfectly accompany the peaceful garden.

The engagement session began at the University of Guelph. One of the reasons this University was chosen is because Calvin was a student of the University, majoring in business. And if the university and garden wasn’t enough, the arrival at the land of Calvin’s parents was the “icing on the cake”. Set upon their land was its own waterfall, along with a pond and a tree swing. The fairy tale scenery included two Lego figurines of Stephanie & Calvin. The Legos were created by Stephanie’s talented sister.

Stephanie & Calvin’s dog is somewhat of a star in their relationship, so it was very important that we grab some shots of Bear with his two companions. Using Calvin’s parents’ land as the backdrop, provided exceptional images of the couple and their Bear and memories for a lifetime.

Congrats, Stephanie & Calvin! We’re super excited to photograph your wedding!

Here are some of our favourites from their e-session:

AMAZING pics!!! SOOOO happy!!!


Alison and Jeff’s engagement session was joyful and fun! It was a beautiful day for a photo shoot with a beautiful couple. These two just exude happiness.

We met up on a warmish September evening and we had such a nice time strolling around Victoria Park in Kitchener with both of them.  Alison has the most happy, upbeat, and adorable personality… and Jeff is her absolute perfect compliment! They are such an amazing couple, and I had such a blast shooting their engagement session!


Alex & I had the incredible honour of documenting Danielle & Cody’s country style wedding. They were married last month in a gorgeous ceremony at Three Bridges Banquet Hall in St.Jacobs. This is definitely a wedding with an adorable bride and groom… and an equally adorable ring bearer Nathaniel! Seeing their very young son plays the role as a ring bearer was very special and important to the newlyweds. It also made for great pictures that will be shared for a lifetime.
Danielle’s style is beautiful, and is a mixture of country chic and elegant. There were so many great details and moments that we could have included twice as many pictures in this sneak peek blog post of their wedding!

It was such a fun wedding to photograph and we’re glad we could be a part of it! Danielle & Cody, we hope you enjoy seeing how happy and beautiful you were on your wedding day!
