About Photography Services & Products

What are your thoughts on engagement sessions?

Engagement sessions are my very favourite for numerous reasons. Most importantly, they let you get acquainted with me and being in front of the camera so come your big day – you feel much more relaxed. I also get a feel of how you interact with one another, which in turn makes me more comfortable with my clients too. Plus, you get awesome photos with a more easy going vibe in your regular attire that you get to show case. The fun we have is just a bonus!

Can we make a custom package?

Certainly! Every wedding is different each in their own way. I’d be happy to discuss what type of coverage you are looking for in order to suit your needs

Do you travel?

Absolutely! I book a limited amount of destination weddings each year, so contact me to discuss your ideas and I’ll be glad to give you a more detailed price list for your specific needs.

Do you offer products such as albums?

I sure do and I am all for them! Albums and prints allow you to showcase your images in a more tangible way. In our digital age, it pains me to think of all the beautiful work collecting dust on a computer. What better way to decorate your home than with a gorgeous wood print or canvas over your mantle?!
