Adventure at Bridal Veil Falls, Manitoulin Island

It's worth driving 6 hours for this waterfall. Bridal Veil is what I imagine all those magic waterfalls in Hawaii must be like - the kinds you can swim right under and pretend to be a mermaid for a little while. When we got to this location the sun had already set. I knew that I wouldn't be able to get any clean portraits because the light was so patchy and dark. So I decided to simply focus on all that good, powerful energy the waterfall gave us, and work with the darkness - not against it.  This turned out to be one of my favourite sessions. Not to mention we had the entire place to ourselves (probably because we are the only crazy people willing to go here in the dark!). 

Thank you Shannon and Evan, for such an incredible shoot and for trusting me with this one! 

A Day At The Cottage on Manitoulin Island with Shannon and Evan

This summer I got to visit Manitoulin Island for the first time to document a very special engagement story. Shannon and Evan invited my to their adorable little cabin on the water, where I was immediately welcomed with oven-baked cookies and plenty of tea. We spent the following three days exploring the different corners of this island; lookouts, waterfalls, and rocky shores. For this part of the story, I'd love to share with you a rainy morning we spent riding bikes and embracing the moody weather.

Jasmine and Emmanuel: The June Motel and Prince Edward County

Jasmine and Emmanuel booked me to document their wedding on June 25th, but these two sweethearts decided to do love completely their own way instead. They spontaneously eloped in a friend's apartment last year, and used the day they had booked for their wedding to go on an adventure with me! We contacted the gorgeous June Motel in Prince Edward County and packed our bags with beach-wear and snacks.  

What I love about Jasmine and Emmanuel is how silly they are with each other. It's a playful kind of love that feels light and real and true. I love the way they accept and honour each other's stories, and how vulnerable they are with each other about that. We ended the day at Sandbanks running up dunes and getting really really sandy. Thank you for a day full of laughter, love and puppy cuddles! Jasmine and Emmanuel, you both are such a great example to others and you inspire me tenfold.
