2012 Year in Review

Wow! What a year 2012 has been! I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people, travelled to some gorgeous areas and had some major changes in my personal life as well!

I was lucky enough to photograph 27 weddings and elopements this year around the Niagara and Toronto areas. I also shot over 30 engagements and even a proposal!

Here is a collection of mainly my wedding photography with a few vacation and personal pictures as well.

I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings.

Happy new year everyone!


The new year started off with some snow! We didn’t get much this year, but when we did my dogs took full advantage of it.


I also had the chance to take pictures of some beautiful horses in the snow!


After a little bit of cold weather, we decided to go to Islamorada in the Florida Keys to warm up. It was an island paradise!
