Ain’t no party like pre-wedding partying! Tons of eats, a live band, drinks for all. It all started early and didn’t finish for another 15 hours or so. Victoria is as cool as they come. After 2 mishaps that would ‘bridezilla’ the calmest and she took it all in stride, unbelievable! haha

We had an stunning day with Victoria, Graham and their families. The ceremony was gorgeous and the reception venue was well-decorated, the food offerings were amazing and the DJ really kept things rolling all night!.

Congratulations Victoria and Graham!

Thanks for having me along for the day, and enjoy these first few images!









Jordan and Jake are country through and through! I met them at “Gramma’s house”. She was baking cupcakes, of course!


We walked through soy beans, wheat and corn ALL in one late afternoon and captured some really great moments. The Massey, the Chesapeake Bay boys lingering around and the horses in the pasture, there was something amazing in every direction. I’m really looking forward to their big day next June! Please enjoy a few of my favourite images from our session!



There’s nothing quite like a walk downtown Guelph to really capture some fun moments! We met up outside Red Brick Cafe on beautiful Douglas Street and sauntered down to Goldie Mill. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening despite forecasts predicting otherwise. Here are a few of my favourite images from our session.

These guys came all the way from B.C. to have their closest friends and families together for a beautiful Fall wedding. Morgan and her girls were dreams to work with and the style the guys chose just screamed classy, Fall wedding.

All the VIP’s spent their prep time in Brentwood Cottages. These cottages are well-appointed, clean, and SO up-to-date!

Hessenland Country Inn has some stunning backdrops and provides a well-organized space with accommodating and friendly staff. The weather cooperated for most of the day but the late night made for some stunning images.


I hope you enjoy my faves from this gorgeous day!

“Hey John, can you come and shoot the party?” Uhhhh, OF COURSE I CAN! Wedding receptions are always the opportunity to catch people once they’ve chilled out with a good meal, a drink or two and a chance to chat up their friends and family. I pulled into the gorgeous lane way of the Caledon Country Club just before the first course was being served. This was a fun crowd, they laughed, they danced and I got to catch it all! I may have even grabbed a tiny sugar buzz from the well-stocked candy bar!

A special thanks to Kelley Colarossi for setting us up and to Roby Miller for lending a keen eye!


Enjoy some of my faves from this reception!
