My goal is to capture your unique and beautiful love and your personality. So let’s get together and get all the moments that really matter. I love meeting new faces and adventuring to new places. In my opinion, the best shots are the ones in between the smiling poses; the laughing, the sneaky kisses, the hugs, the movement. The more you let go and be yourself, the more I’m able to freeze those genuine moments you’ll want to hang onto. Don’t be afraid to tell me about yourself, your style, and your special someone.
I want to get to know you, and I want to know why you chose me.
I want you to be picky about your photographer, just like I’m picky about who I work with. I’m not another vendor you’ll choose just because you like my pictures and hope I can make you look good (I mean, hopefully I can do that too). I believe it’s about more than posing and smiling for the camera. I want it to be meaningful.
I want us to mesh, and I want to be as important to you as you are to me.
We might make a good team if you’re ready to:
Dance around, Get a little messy, Break some rules, Explore with me, Laugh with me. And with each other, Let your hair get in your face, Let me in and be a little vulnerable.
I'm just a goofy gal living a simple little life with my boyfriend/BFF Colin (and my three cats) in the small town of Renfrew in the heart of the Ottawa Valley.
So. there are a million jillion photographers out there but you're here -- reading this, and I am glad that you are! I'm not going to tell you that I am a photographer for adventurous couples because I want to be a photographer for all couples. the ones who like to sit at home and play wii bowling, but also enjoy a good adventure here and there.
Life isn't perfect, relationships can be messy, and social media isn't real life. I want to be the photographer that captures the real stuff. I want to be the photographer that lets you be yourself and doesn't force you to interact in a way that isn't how you normally would just to get a cute shot. I want to know you, because I want to capture you.

Q & A
What sort of gear do you use?
I use two Canon 6d's. A Canon 600x speed-light flash & an assortment of prime lens.
How long until the photos are ready?
It takes about 8 weeks (max) to complete your photos and get them uploaded onto your private online gallery. It all depends on seasonal workload, amount of photography, etc.
How many photos are included?
It’s hard to narrow down the exact amount. A full wedding day (8 hours) can have between 300-500 photos. A regular photo session can be anywhere between 30-75.
Do you travel outside of OTTAWA? Canada?
How far in advance do we need to book?
If I have the spot open, it's yours! Typically portrait sessions are booked a couple months out and weddings anywhere from a few months to a year even up to 2 years out!
We're sold! How do we book?
Just let me know! I'll need to know how many hours of coverage you'd like and any add on's. Then I'll send over a personalized electronic contract that will require a signature. Once I receive that and your 50% retainer, you're on my calendar and that date is yours!
