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.

Sean & Krystal Engagement

Sean & Krystal are two down to earth people that you would love to be friends with.

Krystal’s days are filled with busy elementary school students, & Sean as a professional triathlete; so it is no wonder that many of their evenings are spent quietly at home with their beloved pooch Bernie.  Bernie stole the show as we headed out to explore The Forks of the Credit. His loyalty to be by their sides was quite obvious; as would could barely get him out of ANY of the photo’s (or maybe he is just destined for Doggy Hollywood)!

Looking forward to their July wedding & celebrating alongside with their family & friends.

Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

Guyer/Giffen Family

Family photo sessions are just my favourite! Especially ones with a big bunch of members! There is something to be said about running a happy & successful blended family; & these guys have it nailed down.

The other week I had the opportunity to go and take some photo’s of little Mr Colton & the family.
Colton gave me just what I want from him; his big blues and his subtle stare.

Dano & Lucy’s Wedding | Mississauga, ON


13 years in the making for these two.  

Every wedding that I photograph is so special. People put their faith in me to capture the story of their big day. This wedding meant all that & so much more. For the last two years I have been lucky to be able to get to know Lucy & have worked side by side with her at the school we both work at. She is a coworker; but so much more than that to me as I consider her to be a very close friend. For the last two years we have gotten together on our lunches & have chatted about the detail’s of their big day. I have watched her put sweat & tears into the planning of this wedding & it was incredible to see it all come into fruition.
  Lucy had an undeniable glow to her all day. Both her & Dano’s smiles brought such joy to my heart as they saw each other for the first time. Everyone in attendance saw how ready they were to become each others Mr & Mrs.
From the unbelievable meal, to the dancing, to the speeches, to the entertainment, to the abundance of delicious italian food (I HAD to mention the food twice), to the details … wow! But overall the most memorable out of it all for me was the love that everyone had for these two & how overjoyed everyone was for them.
Not enough words to express my gratitude to you both. Not enough words to express the joy I have to see you two both so in love with one another. And not enough words to express how excited I am to watch the two of you grow & move forward in your marraige. Have an incredible time on your honeymoon to Panama!



time for something new …

Welcome to my NEW BLOG! Ah, that feels so good. New, new, new. It’s been on my mind for a while to upgrade my blog .. Okay .. a long while. But sometimes a girl just needs time to maul over every single blog option; and that is exactly what I did.  Blogger has been good to me for the last few years, but it wasn’t giving me the ability to personalize it how I wanted to. So goodbye old & hello new!

Your photography is absolutely stunning, Maranda! You have a natural ability to capture the spirit of human nature and your photos speak with such strong emotion. Looking at the photos of the wedding made me smile – I could feel the joy as though I were part of the event. Simply amazing!
