Heya!

I'm a destination wedding photographer from the golden-sunset, prairies of Central Canada. 
More importantly, I am a real person who wants a life story filled with chapters worth sharing.  I hope to experience messy cries over moments that matter and to feel the make-your-cheeks-hurt smiles due to prolonged joy. I want to be exhausted after dancing crazy and breathless after laughing too hard. The goals to turn those ideas of embarking on remarkable adventures into a reality. I wish to share some of the best moments that life has to offer with everyone who is willing to share them with me... and maybe eat the best damn pizza while doing it!

My love language is wild and carefree! I am inspired by light, weather and moments shared together. I strive to bring out the vulnerability in people and show emotion that makes a person feel.
I have been creating in all forms since I was a little girl.  I love to draw, write and paint. 
I picked up a camera when I wanted to try out a new outlet.  Started out shooting "editorial" photoshoots with my friends and a 35mm. I was that friend who owned a camera ; As my friends started dating their high school sweethearts, they approached me to take cute couple photos. The idea of hanging out with my friends, going for ice cream and all the while getting to be experimental with my camera seemed like a dream job. The more couples I got to share that with, the more I fell in love with idea of doing it long term! 

I've owned my business for four years which has been filled with blessings of  friendships, much joy, donut walls and laughter. I couldn't be happier to announce that I've just recently turned this into a full time commitment. This business is a huge part of my heart that brings butterflies to my stomach. 

Being genuine is what all I'm about. I choose to work with couples not because of the way they look or the money they spend on their day. I want to photograph couples who get excited about their love, are friendly, honest individuals and overall, eager about the process! If you have a dog I can own vicariously through you, thats a bonus! 
So if you think I'd make a great third wheel, what are you waiting for?
