My very favorite part of this job is getting to be in the presence of radiant happiness. I’ve always been a little bit too empathetic…I absorb the feelings of those around me whether I want to or not. But on days like this one…days like Laura and Bill’s wedding day, the feeling of being in […]
We had the best day ever with Kiera and Lethon, during their gorgeous mountain elopement! Kiera was a true superwoman, completing her nursing finals and then jumping right into planning the details of her special day! I joked that I was truly safe with this amazing bride and groom, as they are both in the […]
Lisa and Brian were wedding guests at the Golden Horseshoe Inn waaaay back in 2014. Somewhere in the back of their minds, they tucked us away as a sweet spot to renew their vows when the time came to celebrate a milestone anniversary. And luckily for us, their beautiful 10 year anniversary vow renewal ceremony […]
One of the unexpected gifts of the current pandemic has been the gift of more time! I just love photographing engagement sessions, but my busy wedding schedule means they can be really hard to fit in. Which is why I had just the best time ever roaming through the mountains with Allison and Vince. A […]
Lizzy and Coburn’s beautiful wedding day was preceded by many twists and turns thanks to the pandemic. The large wedding they had lovingly planned turned into an intimate day for just the two of them and a few very close family members and loved ones. All those who are near and dear to Lizzy and […]
Maybe it’s because I’ve missed being with other people. Maybe it’s because we couldn’t have ordered up a more perfect summer afternoon if we had tried. Maybe it’s because small weddings are my favorite. But I think it’s mostly because we got to spend the day with some genuinely wonderful people. Daron and Paul are […]
I knocked on the groom’s suite door as the sounds of happy chatting and laughter escaped from behind it. The knob turned, and our groom appeared. “Ah, Ray” I said, hopefully glancing down at his feet -“oh, gosh, you’ve got your shoes on already”. I needed those shoes to apply a very sweet set of […]
“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.” – L. Frank Baum The Wonderful Wizard of Oz If you’ve visited me at the Golden Horseshoe Inn during the past year, I’ve probably told you about this wedding 🙂 I have been looking forward […]

Amanda and Patrick celebrated their August wedding with a cheerful and vibrant silver and yellow color scheme and […]
For three years in a row, my best friend and I gave each other the exact same Christmas gift without knowing! It is one of my favorite memories. So my heart swelled about 50 sizes when, after their first look, eyes still glistening with happy tears, Renee and Craig explained to me that they had […]
“Love, it’s not an emotion. Love is a promise.” – The Doctor This was a wedding we had been looking forward to for a very long time! When our bride Mariangela sat down with us and explained her vision for a Doctor Who themed wedding day. we were pretty excited! We LOVE classic and elegant […]
The wedding of two high school sweethearts, who have known each other since Grade 9, what an incredible day this was! Shaking voices, and eyes shining with tears, and thankful smiles, and bear hugs. This was how each toast seemed to go. I knew already that Carlyn and Keith were wonderful people. But the amazing […]
Our Rose of Sharon bush has started to bloom this week and I was so excited to photograph our beautiful bride Jessica and her handsome groom Robert among its flowery branches! They were the best sports about nestling in the blooms, and well, honestly, about everything! During their mountain top photo shoot there was no […]
During Karina and Eric’s wedding, the Golden Horseshoe Inn was filled with the sounds of happy laughter and toasts. Glasses sloshed a little as they were raised in jubilant celebration after each of the heartfelt speeches by Best Man and Maid of Honor. I love days like this. Sometimes I think of our building as […]
As a wedding planner and wedding photographer, if I had my choice of super-powers, I would definitely choose control of the weather. But it seems I didn’t need those powers for Kim and Matt’s wedding…everything just seemed to happen perfectly on its own! It was the first really hot day of the summer, but a […]
Let me introduce you to the most amazing trio! This is our gorgeous bride Jennifer, along with her sweet Groom Mark, and their faithful four legged companion Twain.
