for adventurous couples
Photographing Happy Events Filled with Love
Whether you are having a small, intimate wedding amongst the trees at the cottage or having a luxurious, tented ceremony by the family’s 150 year old stone house – I’m all for it! When it comes to planning your wedding, I can’t stress enough that you need to make it as ‘you’ as possible. Forget what your mother in law will think of the style of your dress or that your aunt Gertrude might not like the choice of food – in the end, people are happy to be there and everything will fall into place, I promise!
When I was young, my grandma always said that laughing was the key to good health.
I whole heartedly believe that and with my sometimes awkward dad jokes and silly personality, there won’t be a shortage of fun when we work together.
Over 400 Unique Weddings
In the last 14 years, I have photographed over 400 weddings but regardless of that number, what’s really special about that is how every single one of them has been unique. Spending my weekends surrounded with people in love and celebrating their union with their beaming and proud family and friends might actually be the best job out there. I am happy to lend a helping hand in the planning process so don’t hesitate to shoot your ideas at me and I’ll do my best to advise you the best I can! For now, why don’t you get lost in other peoples celebrations and possibly start jotting down your ideas and any questions you might have for me. Then, send me a message if you like what you see and possibly want to be a Willow & Wander couple!
The Willow & Wander Experience
I only take on a limited number of couples each year to ensure each of them have the best experience possible. Each wedding I shoot is as unique and special as the couple themselves. No matter whether your thing is trekking out into the middle of Gatineau Park for an elopement or booking one of the most luxurious venues in town, I am here to make your wedding dreams come true and help you capture memories to last a lifetime.

Only 2 days before our wedding day, my dad had a heart attack and couldn't attend as he laid in critical condition in the hospital. We had a lot of guests come from overseas and he stressed that he didn't want us to cancel anything because of what happened. Safe to say, the whole day was extremely emotional and every person that was there was dealing with their own feelings about that. Melissa brought a sense of calm the moment she walked through the door. She reassured us when we doubted anything, was so patient and never rushed us. At one point, I found her in my room where my dress was hanging hugging my mom who was having a hard time. It's no exaggeration when I say that Melissa made our day 1000x better. Not only did she photograph our wedding beautifully, she was our friend throughout the entirety of the day and we all couldn't thank her enough for being there the way that she was.
