Matt & Dana - October 10, 2020 | Aberfoyle Mill | Aberfoyle, ON | with Simply Wedding Photography

 Two weddings in a day is not a normal thing for me. I can imagine that even less rare is two that are so intimate and humbling to be involved in. Sometimes people run into each other for a reason and the smallest connections are found.

As I am waiting for guests to arrive, I was talking to the Minister who I figured out was from New Brunswick (I could hear a bit of an accident so I inquired).  I said my family was from Cape Breton.  The Groom then proceeds to tell me that Dana (the Bride) is from New Waterford, NS - a very (VERY) small coal mining town outside of Sydney.  Low and behold - so is my family! We have yet to figure out who knows who - but its got to be there somewhere - Ill have to ask my mother, lol!

I digress. It was SO overcast as I waited, gathering photos of guests as they came in with their masks ready to go. Then, there was Dana.  The ceremony was beautiful amongst the fall colours outside and no one cared that it was spitting (almost to the point of steady rain). Lucky for us the rain cleared up as the ceremony ended and we were still able to do photos on the beautiful grounds at the Aberfoyle Mill.  

Never have I been to a venue that was so large outdoors, but felt so intimate and cozy.  I couldn't be happier for Dana and Matt as they hold hands walking into the sunset :)

Simon & Cheryl - October 10, 2020 | Dublin Street United Church | with Simply Wedding Photography

 This is probably the most intimate wedding I have ever had the honour of being asked to participate in.  After spending some time at Cheryl & Simons, we all headed down to Dublin United for their vows. 

I have witnessed a lot of vows - I am a wedding photographer after all - but rarely is it enough to bring me on the brink of a tear.  Simon - you have absolutely crushed my "no cry" streak.  

All the best to Simon and Cheryl as they start this chapter together!

Melissa & Andre's Wedding | August 29th, 2020 | Cutten Fields Golf Course | University of Guelph | with Simply Wedding Photography

 We weren't quite sure this morning if the rain was going to cooperate with us.  It was pretty overcast, gloomy and raining at times.  By the time we hit the Arboretum of Guelph, the sun had won the fight and although it spit on us once or twice, we couldn't have asked for much better (except the wind, we could have asked for no wind!).  

Melissa & Andre had their first look at the Japanese Garden at the Arboretum. It was intimate, beautiful and a moment Im sure neither of them will ever forget. Met by their friends and family for photographs, the love and support was evident. By the time we got to Cutten Fields Golf Course the sun was in full swing and ready for a beautiful ceremony.  Following the couples nuptials, we headed over to the University of Guelph for the stunning architecture at War Memorial Hall and Johnson Hall.

We wish Melissa and Andre all the best life has to offer as they begin this new journey together!

Shannon & Matt - August 8th, 2020 | with Simply Wedding Photography

 We're baaaaack!!! Wow did it ever feel fantastic to start shooting again.  Our last wedding was pre-covid on February 25th, 2020 and we couldn't have kicked off the summer season (or whats left of it) with Shannon and Matt!

Their wedding was held on their amazingly beautiful property and we even had their doggie Ratchet along for the day! This made me one happy camper!  None of us could have asked for better weather - the sun was out and tolerable and although I have a slight red tint to me today - the breeze was beautiful and the wedding party was super fun!!!

Best wishes to you both as you start this new chapter together!

Information Update - March 2020

If you are anything like me, this COVID-19 stuff was not in my plans for 2020.

These are unprecedented times and unfortunately, it may mean some very big changes and hard decisions for my clients.  Rest assured I am here for you and will assist in every way possible. 

If you have come to the agonizing and difficult decision to postpone your wedding during this time, I extend my deepest empathy.  Shoot me an email or a text and I can send you the information on the rescheduling process.

There are NO FEES associated with having to change dates due to COVID-19.

Photo is unrelated, however everyone needs a smile :)

Ashley & Scott - February 29th, 2020 | Dundurn Castle, Hamilton Ontario | with Simply Wedding Photography

Wow, wow, wow! What a way to kick off our 2020 season! Ashley and Scott had a swing themed engagement shoot, and their dance last night didn't disappoint.  This couple is vibrant and full of love for each other. Their wedding at Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, Ontario was the perfect venue for their unique style and vision.  Following Dundurn, we made our way over to Carmen's Banquet Centre for a fun reception!  Thank you both for making our 2020 kick off so excellent!  Congratulations!
