So excited to post the first wedding of 2017! This indoor Winter Wedding was elegant and modern, complete with a gorgeous couple and beautiful venues!
Nicole & Alex are genuinely best friends and every chance they had to look at one another throughout their wedding day, they were either beaming with smiles or laughing! The joy and energy throughout the date was so contagious. Not only because of this wonderful couple, but also their families. As a photographer who truly loves my job, I can't help but think to myself, "I have the best clients" on days like these. I'm so glad Nicole & Alex picked me to photograph their day!
Since they had an early March Wedding, all precautions were taken to ensure everyone would be warm and dry. They chose two of the best local venues to make that a reality. After Nicole got ready at Caesars Windsor, we went to the Art Gallery of Windsor for their first look and portraits. The light was perfect and the Art Gallery lends a location different from most; modern clean lines and an abundance of natural light. Their ceremony and reception was at Ambassador Golf Club which is fantastic for an elegant wedding without the competition of many different weddings going on at one time.
Nicole & Alex, you are so wonderful and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
A few kind words from Nicole & Alex:
"The minute we met Emma we knew she was the person we wanted to capture our special day.
Emma was amazing! She is organized, kind, and incredibly talented. We felt at ease working with her
and she made smiling for hours easy ;). Emma's attention to detail is fantastic and her ability to corral
our crazy families was impressive. We cannot say enough good about Emma and
her gift to ensure we have the most beautiful memories.
Love Alex and Nicole"

I met Krista & Farhan for the first time in the Fall of last year and instantly I felt at ease. They are authentic, kind souls with a desire for quality. From the moment we met I knew they were passionate about creating great photography. It's been a dream working with them to create memories they can treasure. Here are some photos from their engagement session back in November. It was one of the last warmer days of the season and we squeezed every last drop of sunshine we could out of the evening. Can't wait for their August wedding to create more together.

I met Mario at my home studio months ago when they originally booked their wedding. Tamara was out of town so we just chatted over the phone. But I gathered the vibe from them that the had some great core values and I loved the vision they had for their wedding day. These things combined made me see that we would make a great time. Together they adopted an adorable pup named Leo who grew into a ball of life. They described him as full of energy so you'd understand my surprise when we got some great posed shots of him sitting so still. He was made to model!
Together Mario & Tamara love to relax together, host friends in their home and they both appreciate nature. So we took a natural approach to their engagement and went to Brunet Park. A nice quiet spot for Leo as well, but mostly just somewhere they could enjoy one another. We laughed a lot and I'm so happy with how the photos turned out. Some of the images have such a nice classic look to them, while others you can feel the moment.
These two lovelies will be tying the knot in May and I can't wait to photograph their intimate Serbian-Croatian wedding!
Are you getting married? If so, I'd love to chat! I love to get to know my clients. The best way to showcase a couple, I think, is to learn who they are. Lets meet over a cup of coffee to see what you're dreaming. Click here to send me a message.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!! What better way to start of this week of love than with an in-home cuddle session, on the blog. I have been following Deborah's amazing talents through Figgie Shoes for years now. She also has many other talents being photography, her Instagram Blog, amongst many other things. Finally got to meet her and her wonderful husband Iven last month. They are so wonderful. Some people you meet and instantly feel comfortable, like you could be life long friends. Not only were they inviting, their love for one another is captivating! They are head over heels involve and it is so obvious in their photos.
Most people think of engagement photos as the only reason to take photos of themselves with the person they love. But this isn't the case!
Marriage is the beginning of a life of love. Love should be remembered and cherished in all stages. I've been married for almost 12 years now and I have photos from our teenaged dating years, our engagement, and all throughout our marriage. It's so special to look back through our memories and see how much we've grown together. Always make sure to take photos of you and your Valentine together. Memories are all we have left of yesterdays.
Any day with you is my favourite day,
So, today is my new favourite day.

Ok, can I just say off the bat that I'm a huge sucker for outdoor weddings? If you're having a wedding outside, in your backyard, in a cute little restaurant, rooftop or other obscure different location, I'm 100% there! Something about outside of the box, whether those walls are real or metaphorical, has me in my creative element. Courtney & Jeff had an intimate yet elegant outdoor wedding in Kingsville.
I met them just a couple short months before their wedding. Courtney was a machine planning a gorgeous intimate wedding in a short amount of time. In September I met them at Malden Park for their engagement shoot and then their wedding was just one month later. It was a very warm October Day and the sun was shining. I'm sure if you ask Courtney, she would say that the day couldn't have been more perfect. We started with their getting ready photos in Windsor and then travelled to Kingsville for the rest of the day. The ceremony & Reception were held at Kingsville Golf & Country club and we just took a quick trip with Courtney & Jeff alone to Lakeside Park for some sun kissed photos at the sun started to come down.
Congratulations to both of you, Courtney & Jeff! Wishing you all the best in your many happy years together.
