One of the most beautiful places to host your wedding in the Ancaster/Dundas area is the Old Mill. I was fortunate to capture a number of weddings here this year including Alisa & Jordan’s. After an engagement session like theirs at Guild Park and Gardens, you want to keep things at the same level. Alisa herself is a makeup artist – you should see what she does for herself and Jordan on halloween! A good friend to have at that time of year 😉 I love finding out about peoples’ hidden talents.

These two have now moved well on with their lives, having had a bouncing baby boy named Hudson and easing into family life. Here’s wishing them both the very best of luck as they continue their journey!

Having already had a great engagement shoot with Angela and Taras at Sunnydale Farms, I knew their wedding would be a genuine celebration of their lives. Though their lives are in Calgary, they came back to Niagara region where both their families reside, to complete their nuptials. I’d been to Balls Falls Conservation area before, but once I visited for my customary pre-wedding scouting mission, I found some brilliant areas for their portraits that promised to please with the fall backdrop.

I know these two are going to enjoy a happy life together. Congratulations you guys!



Patience is a virtue. Imagine trying to find a day when mom is available, it becomes warm enough (at long last), the blossoms are still on the trees, and the glorious sunshine is out at the right time.  I had been keeping in touch with Renée & Rudi for weeks for this when the day came at last and thank goodness we seized the opportunity when it arose! I had been worrying about missing the opportunity to shoot as Renée’s due date was rapidly approaching and the blossoms were starting to fall, not to mention that Renée’s mother had sewn her a beautiful maternity dress for the shoot.

Literally five days after these photos were taken, Renée & Rudi were joined by their long-awaited Isabella on Victoria Day Weekend. I am happy to share that mother, baby, and nervous daddy are all doing very well. My sincerest best wishes to you both on this next stage of your lives.
