I still remember opening up my email to find an inquiry from someone named Jessica. She was inquiring about my wedding photography services.
The more we chatted, the more it felt like this was someone that I was meant to serve. Jessica is a beautiful, kind, and loving woman who has faced many struggles in her life but she and her fiance Kevin had weathered them. It was these struggles that connected Jessica and I even more. Not just as photographer and bride, but as friends who understood at least some of what the other had been through.
Together with their children, I am excited to be sharing this journey with Jessica & Kevin. I can't wait to celebrate their marriage with them in October. I know it's going to be a very personal and emotional day.
For today, just one little teaser image. Keep your eyes out for more of their engagement portrait session and their story coming very soon.
What better way to get to know a couple, then to hear about them in their own words. So, without further a do...a few words from Katy & Cheryl.
5 1/2 yrs
A mutual friend. Katy is convinced it was a set up. He's a member of our wedding party and a colleague of mine from work.
Pretty much the first day we met (and that IS both our answers).
Cheryl - my girl's smile.
Katy - her kind heart and soul and laugh.
Gardening, walking, travelling, watching tv (Big Bang Theory), nights out including a nice meal and generally just hanging around each other.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
We have our moments, ones we like to call 'A day in the life of Katy and Cheryl.' Katy is somewhat hard of hearing and sometimes misinterprets what she hears. One of our favourites is the day we were chatting and I read a status from a friend's Facebook page, saying "My friend Lynn just got her diver's license! " (Lynn lives on a boat) Katy - "Huh, how does that make any sense?" Cheryl - "What do you mean?" Katy - "Your friend got a gremlin?" Cheryl - "No, I said, my friend Lynn got her diver's license." Katy - "Oh, I wondered about that, I mean gremlins aren't supposed to get wet..." Sigh. This explains us.
A huge thank you goes to Katy & Cheryl for taking the time to share a little bit about their love story with us today.
I am so insanely excited to work with these fantastic ladies on their beautiful August 2015 wedding day!

You know when you met a couple, and you can tell right away they have a connection. Maybe they finish each others sentences, maybe they are always together, or maybe, they are just united with each other over their love and they passion for the family they have created.
Courtney and Josh are one of these couples!
Today I'm thrilled to share with you a sneak peek of the portraits we created of this fantastic couple and their little guy at the St Thomas Train Station. There's no doubt that while this little guy loves his dad, his 'Coco' is the apple of his eye.
While a picture tells a thousand words, the story of this fantastic couple is better shared in theirs so without further ado, I'm turning it over to Courtney & Josh.
Just slightly over a year
We met through a mutual friend, than again at cowboys one night where I dismissed him because I was having a girls night! So mean, haha, we didn't talk for a few weeks after that until I reached out to him because I realized he could be a great guy and sure enough he is!
Courtney- I knew Josh was the one within a few weeks of us dating, I just had this feeling about him that I had never felt before. He made me giddy and excited about life. When we weren't together I missed him terribly, to the point where we started basically living together after a few months of dating. Also a big point when I realized I wanted to marry this man was seeing him with his son, he is a great father.
Josh- There was stages for me, I knew that she was the one not only for me but also my son Xavier, how she chose to love him like her own and deal with all the other logistics of being a step-mother. I love how she stands by me no matter what, that was when I knew I wanted her in my life forever, we had numerous conversations about life and what we wanted out of it but it wasn't until I took a step back and realized she was all I wanted, and I could stop looking, on that day I went and bought her ring and proposed to her.
Courtney- Ahh, there is so many things, it is hard to narrow it down to just one. I would have to say my favourite thing about him is how hard he works to make me happy and express his love for me. His eyes are also pretty killer.
Josh- Again, there is so many things I love about her. I can't narrow it down to one, I love her willingness and drive to fight for what she believes is right, it takes so much strength and courage to be a step-mother and go through the things we have together. I also melt when she holds my hand, kisses me, and her laugh is absolutely adorable.
What do you love to do together?
Being outside has to be one of our favourite things to do together, just enjoying the sun and the relaxation of the outdoors, that and eating we both love to eat, always trying new things and exciting foods.
I can't even begin to express how excited I am to work with this fantastic family for their August 2016 wedding day!
It was a snow February day when I met Kaitlyn, Ryan & their adorable dog Bear in a London, Ontario park for a hot chocolate and blankets inspired engagement portrait session.
After the session had concluded we trekked back to the cars and began a new adventure this time filled with cars stuck in the snow, car problems and tow trucks. Not the way we planned things but I think we can safely say it's a session neither of us will forget too soon.
