Maranda Elysse Photography bio picture
  • Thanks for making your way on over here to my blog!

    I am a photographer, wife, mom to the sweetest little boy & dog mama to two perfect rescue dogs who have changed my life! I am someone who will always eat my vegetables first, I could get lost shopping in Homesense for hours, and my sunroof is always open. I like Tim Hortons over Starbucks, poutine over burgers, and Italian food is always my first choice. I am passionate about my clients & their love and documenting them in a sincere way. I wake up humbled and grateful each day that I get to call this my job.

Lucy | Maternity Session

One of my amazing BF’s is having a baby; and very soon! I can’t wait to meet you sweet Daniel.

Cheers, xo!

The Raymond’s | Family Photo Session

I love this family! This was my second time photographing the Raymond Family, as I had the pleasure of photographing them back in 2011 when they were a family of three. Now they are  a beautiful family of four!

We spent a gorgeous sunny morning wandering and exploring RK McMillan Park and taking in everything it has to offer. Mom, dad and I had quite a few laughs while attempting to get a photo of the four of them together; but we did it!

Hope to see you all soon.

Cheers, xo!

Charlotte & Henry | Newborn Session

My golly do I ever love my returning families!

I first met & worked with the Ballantyne family back in 2009 when I shot their wedding. A few years later miss Charlotte arrived & I had the opportunity to do some family photos for them. Now, the final piece to their puzzle has arrived; Henry!

I spent some time with them catching up, and snuggling with their new bundle of joy.  Oh, I also took some photos too 😉

Cheers, xo!

PS – prepare your eyes, for what you are about to see is an overload of cuteness!

2012 In Review

Yes I know, its now 2013, but it’s been such a busy holiday season that i’m just getting around to posting my favourite images of 2012 (I hope you will excuse my tardiness)!

2012 brought an immense amount of joy to my life, both in business and personal endeavors. I’m so excited to see how much the business grew in 2012; with it being the year of the largest amount of weddings I’ve shot yet! I checked off so many business “to-do’s”, started offering new products, and launched this blog. With that being said, get ready to see even more changes in 2013!

Many thanks to my constant supporters & wonderful clients that I worked with in 2012. Here are my 2012 favourites!


Luis & Michelle’s Wedding | Sharon, ON

 Luis and Michelle met on an online Spanish chat room years back while she was in university studying to become a nurse. Michelle was taking a Spanish course and decided to log in to a Spanish chat room for some practice, and to seek out an online tutor. I am sure that never in her wildest dreams did she think that by logging in on that very second, that she would be introduced to her future husband. Sure enough; that’s exactly what happened! Much later on, the two had the opportunity to meet, and the rest is history.

Tears and smiles were shared in front of a small group of close family & friends, as Luis & Michelle exchanged vows during their civil ceremony on November 23rd. Luis’ mom was unable to attend, but was able to watch their ceremony from Argentina via Skype. Luis & Michelle are in the midst of an exciting journey, as they are expecting their first baby this coming March.

Congratulations again to you both!!

Cheers, xo!
