  • 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.

Alex & Jennifer’s Wedding | Aurora, ON

I shot this wedding back in June as a second shooter to my BFPP (best friend photography pal) Stephannie.  I had a blast photographing the men throughout the morning; from burnt eggs to backyard chickens.  A gorgeous heart felt ceremony at the Trinity Anglican Church in Aurora. Love was on a constant over flow with this wedding; so much happiness as two joined as one. I finished up the day with them by having a seriously fun time taking photo’s at St. Andrews College.

Best wishes to the lovely couple!

It was amazing to have you there my BFPP! As usual we worked great together and you gave me more confidence… But what’s new about that?! Love your detail shots, amazing work babes.

Jennifer’s Prom Photo’s

 My second little sister (not by blood, but by babysitting her for years) graduated highschool. This is a moment that makes me think “wow, time is flying by.”

Gorgeous, hilarious, motivated, focused. Nothing but success is in her future. Excited to see where life takes you!

Izabella | 7 months

Meet Izabella.

The spunkiest little 7 month old that I know. We have a really good relationship. I crack cheesy jokes and make silly comments & she laughs in return. What more could I ask of her? Izabella is the daughter of a dear co-worker of mine & this is her first appearance onto my new blog. Stay tuned for a couple more sessions with her within the next coming months.

Until than, I will leave you in “awe” – literally!

These are so lovely cute and beautiful. Well done, Maranda, as always. )))

Tyler & Natalina’s Wedding | Newmarket, ON

Perfect Clients? Yup.

Tyler & Natalina are two of the most genuinely real, thoughtful, down to earth clients that I’ve ever had the privilege to work with (no exaggeration; I mean it). Throw in two awesome families, and a wonderful group of friends into the mix and you have a Wedding Photographer who just shrieks with excitement all day long.  These two lovebirds were married at the ever so lovely Waterstone Estates in Newmarket, ON. The venue just pulls at my heart; long grassy fields deep in the country with endless possibilities for photograph’s

I spent the morning photographing Natalina & her family at their home. She brought tears to my eyes and a flutter to my heart once I discovered that she too had lost her father; just another addition to the list of things that we have in common.  I’m going to go ahead right now & thank Natalina’s father for sending us some perfect May weather from up above.

My heart can’t express the gratitude I feel towards you both for choosing me to photograph one of the biggest days of your lives. Big hugs & thanks to your beautiful families & friends & awesome bridal party for your warmth & friendliness throughout the day. Here is to hoping that our path’s cross many times throughout our lifetime.

Cheer’s to your love.

My darling, these are your best yet. So proud of you! It really shows what happens when you have passion about what you’re doing, and baby we were full of passion that day. Love you! xo
