When you have a cabin on a private island on a beautiful lake, it’s kind of a no-brainer to do your engagement session there. I wanted to stay forever. These two and their pup hopped on paddle boards for a bit and we ended the session with some gorgeous shots that I took from a kayak. Enjoy!
Allen & Janessa have been married almost 8 years! Clearly they are still very much in love! The sweetest thing about my job is watching my couples relax into each other as we shoot.
We headed to kenora with zero specific locations in mind. Allen & Janessa trusted me to just make it up as we went and it went WELL! We followed our noses and found these amazing locations, had a ton of fun and captured way too many photos for them to know what to do with. It was a fantastic evening and we ended the night with a delicious dinner by the lake. Enjoy!
I love backyard weddings…but backyard weddings on beautiful fall days beside a river…that’s ideal. The fall colours were really showing off and if Shauna’s epic bouquet didn’t steal the show, their beautiful little girl certainly did. Enjoy!
Mark & Gillian asked for suggestions for their location for their engagement session and I immediately suggested a few places FAR from Winnipeg. lol. They were like YES!!! The Old Pinawa Dam was their favourite suggestion so we headed out there and basically just explored and frolicked around on the rocks for an hour. These two were such a blast and I’m really looking forward to their wedding at the end of December!
Zach & Mercedes planned an elegant, woodland themed wedding on what turned out to be an incredibly beautiful Manitoba day. After getting ready in their newly (almost) renovated home, the girls drove out to meet the guys at Bird’s Hill park and after a quick first look with the love birds, we had a blast photographing the wedding party and couple against that gorgeous forest backdrop. The ceremony and reception were held at the gorgeous Ashgrove Acres (located just south of Winnipeg) and everything was perfect. Their dessert reception was not only appealing to the eye, but just as delicious as it looked. The donut wall was a hit and after some heartfelt speeches, a little dancing and lot of fun with their guests, the couple was sent off with sparklers to their happily ever after. Enjoy!
We started off with a plan. We loaded the canoe, and headed to the rock quarry that always had this beautiful, clear, blue water and limestone and forest all around. But you should have seen our faces when we showed up the the whole quarry was completely dried up. But Steve and Leah are just the type of couple that can make the most of any situation, so we told the story, and took photos in the dried up quarry. We had some fun with it and then headed out to find some other body of water to use. In the end, this shoot became a favourite. Adventurous, fun and romantic. Just the way I like em’.
This wedding was a lot of fun and Taylor did such an amazing job of planning a beautiful day. Plus I'm always happy when the bride and groom sneak away to the beach for some sunset photos in the middle of their reception!! Enjoy!

Hunt Lake Trail in the Whiteshell was the perfect location for Mercedes & Zach's engagement session. It rained right up until we started the shoot leaving everything fresh and green and beautiful. We had so much fun hiking, chatting and snapping photos along the way. The evening ended with the most beautiful cotton-candy sunset over the lake. Enjoy!
