Renee & Nic | Durham Region Wedding Photographer

I’ve had the pleasure of working with these two on a couple occassions before their absolutely gorgeous wedding day! Check out their adorable family/engagement session here… 

They are such a warm hearted couple, and their little girls are so sweet. They’ll be welcoming another addition to the family very soon and have kept the gender a surprise, I can’t wait to hear the news!!

For now let’s take a look back at their lovely wedding day full of so much love and laughter and a gorgeous summer sunset, one of my absolute favourite things to capture on a wedding day! I love capturing my couples during the golden hour light - if we can sneak out during the reception for just a bit, it’s always… always worth it!

Renee & Nic, I’ve loved working with you guys for so many special memories in your life so far and I look forward to working with you again in the future. I wish you two nothing but the best as you enter this next exciting chapter, you are already such wonderful parents to your two little girls and I know you’ll continue that - you have a beautiful family, and I hope you continue to make beautiful memories together! 

…and I don’t know what more to say so I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves…. because… seriously, soooo beauitful.

Xo,
Katie

Stefania & Kyle | Maternity Session | Durham Region Photographer

It’s been a little quiet on the blog lately and to be honest I am not sure when I’ll find another moment to blog again, since welcoming our little girl just over two weeks ago, things have been pretty busy! 

Tonight however, I got a chance to put this lovely blog post together and hopefully these two will be welcoming their own bundle of joy very very soon! 

Stefania & Kyle were part of a lovely wedding party I had the pleasure of photographing in 2015, Kyle reached out to me around Christmas to surprise Stefania with a photo session in the new year to capture this wonderful time in their lives. It’s always nice to meet couples through weddings and photograph their memories as well.

This next chapter is such an important one and I was honoured to capture some lovely photos of them at home with their first baby (their fur baby!) and I hope to be able to capture some family memories down the road for them as well. These two were full of so much laughter and love, you know this baby is going to be well loved with two amazing parents. 

Stefania & Kyle, I wish you two all the best and am anxiously awaiting the news, congratulations once again!! 

Xo, 
Katie

Finn | Newborn Session, Durham Region Photographer

It’s so lovely when I get to catch up with old friends from high school and photograph their beautiful growing family. I was happy to have the chance to capture these beautiful memories - time slips by so quickly and before we know it our little ones are all grown up. I love being able to capture moments within the first couple weeks at home of families just snuggled and loving on their new bundle of joy! 

Mr. Finn was no exception, he was spoiled with love from his parents and proud big sister during their photo session and I am sure that doesn’t stop there and how could it? He is just too sweet! 

Congratulations to this adorable family, cherish every lovely moment!

Caitlin | Boudoir Session, Durham Region Photographer

When my brides write me to inquire about a boudoir session as a wedding gift for their hubby to be I get pretty excited! I love when brides feel comfortable in their own skin and don’t mind showing it off a little infront of my camera. They not only get a lovely gift for their husband, but they get a gift for themselves as well. When do we ever take the time just for us? I always want to make sure my clients are having fun, feel relaxed and comfortable and usually after the first 10-20 minutes of us just girl chatting and me snapping some photos, they start to warm up and the confidents and sass pours out of them and they walk away feeling more beautiful then they did before we started. 

Caitlin was no exception, she rocked her session and she is a stunner! Her hubby is one lucky guy and if you recently saw their wedding photos you will see how choked up he got receiving these photos the day of their wedding. I never get to see the reaction when a bride gifts these to her hubby and I was so excited to see my second caught those shots of him, he absolutely loved the photos and how could he not? I mean … seriously! Just look for yourself.

Thank you Caitlin for letting me capture these for you and thank you for allowing me to share some of my favourites!

Katie

Caitlin & Mike | South Pond Farms Wedding

2017-04-17_0072.jpg

I had been eagerly waiting since 2015 to capture this lovely July 2016 wedding - this couple is beyond adorable and I secretly wished their dog could have been another ring bearer, I would have gotten so many more snuggles in! If you aren’t sure what I am talking about, you must check out their beautiful Fall engagement session

Caitlin & Mike held their wedding at South Pond Farms and what a gorgeous venue it is! Their day was perfect from start to finish, with adorable details and a special grand ceremony entrance from the bride to surprise her groom, trust me you’ll want to view these photos to see more!

I absolutely loved capturing their day and their love for one another. Caitlin & Mike, you two are perfect together and I know this day was just the start to many more exciting adventures and memories to come. I am wishing you so many more years full of love and happiness and I can’t wait to document more of life’s special moments for you both down the road!
