Working with Danny & Hannah has been amazing since day one. They are both such kind and laid back people which is totally my jam. Back at their engagement session in October of last year, I knew their wedding was going to be amazing. They let me run with the planning so for portraits we piggy backed on their engagement photos and went back to Maiden Lane with just the two of them and then met up with their bridal party at Goose Bay Park for some group photos. Such a fun bridal party. We laughed a lot and then went off to their party.

 

Sometimes you work a wedding and don't want to leave because the party is hopping. This was one of those weddings! But unfortunately it did come to an end and here we are. Thank goodness for photographers for keeping the memories alive ;)

 

Congratulations Danny & Hannah! Love you guys.

Family is the most important thing to Tamara & Mario. Mario is Croatian and Tamara is Serbian, both are so similar and they speak the same language. Their cultures are so intertwined that being together happens so naturally for them. Today the bridal party stands out in magazines at the forefront but when I first spoke to Tamara and we were chatting about what is important to them on their wedding day, she said family. Their whole wedding day was all about being surrounded and supported by family from getting ready with her mom and sister, to their buying of the bride ceremony surrounded by family and friends. 

 

I'm a sucker for intimate weddings, outside weddings and small restaurant weddings and their day was all of these things. 

 

Congratulations Mario & Tamara, it was an honour to spend your day with you! Wishing you both (and your pup Leo) a very happy life together! - Emma

Andrea & Shawn's story is a classic tale where the city girl falls head over heels for the country boy. So much so, that they bought a beautiful home in Essex County where they enjoy a quieter life, that is when their husky Kuma isn't livening up the place.

 

We celebrated their engagement first at the Iron Kettle B&B's second photo location in Comber, ON where a new friend was made. The loudest goat I have ever heard in my life, dear Barbara. I'm not sure who names a goat Barbara, but I've since decided it was very fitting. Not to mention hilarious. After the farm we made sure to take a trip through a wheat field. Shawn is a wheat farmer so the glowing strands commemorate a big part of their lives. Then we finished off with a little visit to see Kuma at their home and a gorgeous epic moody sky. 

 

Andrea & Shawn are getting married this September at Viewpoint Estate Winery and I have a feeling that wedding will be making a blog debut as well. 

 

Are you getting married in Ontario? I would love to chat more about your dreams for your day. I've been photographing weddings and engagements for 10 years now and I love it! I'm based in Windsor, Ontario but travel throughout Ontario to capture many couples' stories.

I'm a loving on this session with Natalie & Mitch. The photos are classy-romantic but also really fun and natural. 

 

The two love birds met while Natalie was working at Telus. Mitchell came in to buy a phone and Natalie recognized him from a mutual friend. They started dating from there and then together, they moved to London, England to experience more as a couple. After traveling Europe together they are now ready to make the plunge into the next step. 

 

At their engagement session we started off at Jackson Park, catching some of the summer blooms. Then went to Goose Bay Park for some more intimate and candid shots. We laughed a lot. It was such a great time getting to know this beautiful couple a little more. I'm really looking forward to their wedding, I know it will be a great time!

 

 

Engagement sessions are such a fun way for me to get to know the couple before their wedding day. It's kind of like a little practice run. We warm up to one another so by the time your wedding day rolls around, we're old friends! I also use it as an opportunity to learn what you like most about yourself and how the two of you jive as a couple.

As an artist and a photographer it's so important to me personally that I love what I do and that my clients feel comfortable with me. When I met Chanthorn for our consultation, she was so sweet and I knew I would love to photograph their wedding. Chanthorn and Sreang had their first date in September 2008 at Cora's, followed by a walk down at the Detroit River's Peach Fountain. Nine years later with two beautiful young boys and many stories to tell, they'll be saying their I do's this September at MacKenzie Hall.

 

Their engagement session was a lot of fun. We drove out to Point Pelee to capture some natural shots. A walk out on the boardwalk, complete with me getting attacked by a red winged blackbird. A photo shoot wouldn't be complete without a touch of drama haha. We then took a walk through nature and finished at the beach at sunset. 

 

Can't wait to photograph this romantic pair at their wedding this Fall!
