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.

Farewell Summer

As per our tradition, the ending of summer always includes a photo date with my sister. Usually, we will head out multiple times while she is home from her studies, but summer 2012 has just flown right on by. I’ve been hibernating in our new home (which has consumed our entire summer with renovations & settling in) and only shooting for work. Spending a matter of an hour out shooting for fun was just what the doctor ordered. My sister has got that magical power to bring me right back down to earth & feel balanced.  I’m so very grateful to have the incredible sister relationship that we have. These photo’s only share an ounce of her beauty.

Cheers, xo

Sean & Krystal’s Wedding | Caledon, ON

Sean & Krystal’s wedding was held at the beautiful Tralee Wedding Facility in Caledon, on one hot scorcher of a day.

You may recognize them from their previous engagement session which can be seen here.  I met up with Krystal & her bridesmaids in the morning at her parents beautiful home. I had such a wonderful time & instantly felt welcomed in their home, but you see, that’s just the kind of person Krystal is. Kind, caring, & very compassionate towards her family & friends. Sean & Krystal are another set of my clients who are high school sweethearts, and I don’t know if it’s the many years of their life that they have spent together, or the huge anticipation of their wedding day finally arriving, but I always feel something so magical and warm when I photograph high school sweetheart’s weddings.

What will I remember from this wedding? The biggest smiles plastered all over Sean & Krystal’s faces all day long, the funniest bride & groom speech that i’ve ever heard, the most unique way to get the couple to kiss by having a mini putt station, & the best vegetarian meal & nut free dessert i’ve ever tasted. But beyond all this, the one thing I will remember above all is the love and joy that was very clearly felt from all of the family & friends who support Sean & Krystal.

This wedding was such an absolute pleasure to photograph & can’t help but feel blessed to have been a small part of such a beautiful day.  Wishing you both nothing but the best as you start your married life together.

Cheers, xo!

Michael & Samantha’s Wedding | Caledon, ON

My very first “Friday the 13th wedding”.

Michael & Samantha were married at the stunning Royal Ambassador Banquet and Event Centre in Caledon. My first time shooting in this venue; and I hope to return! The grounds & breath taking ceremony site were absolutely lovely to work with!

Michael & Samantha are highschool sweethearts, which just makes my heart swoon. The wedding was just darling & I was so pleased with how cool, calm & collected both Michael & Samantha were about their day.

The wedding was a wonderful celebration of their love & all of their accomplishments, both individually & as a couple. Some beautiful speeches, an incredible meal, wonderful family & friends, & a whole lot of laughs are what comes to my mind when I think back to their day. Congratulations to you both, I hope to eventually photograph your cute “oreo babies” lol 🙂

The pictures are absolutely beautiful. You captured the essence of Samantha’s and Michael’s love for one another on this special day to perfection.
Thank you for including their magical moments on your website. As I was unable to attend the wedding due to my son being married the same weekend, visiting your site gave me the opportunity to feel like I was almost there in person.
