Alexandra & Luke | Country Chic Wedding

Where do I even begin with this gorgeous wedding and adorably sweet couple?

Alex has such a kind heart, and it was amazing working with these two and getting to know them. Luke is a shy guy, but each time I worked with him from the engagement to their wedding photos I was able to capture them just as they are relaxed and comfortable with one another. Having been together for 11 + years they had no problem getting cozy infront of the camera. 

I loved their wedding day so much so that I had to send it along to a local bridal magazine, Beautiful Beginnings Bridal where they featured Alex and her girls on the front cover and a two page spread inside the magazine of their wedding day. Their day was so beautiful! From the florals to the wedding party tractor ride, and all the sweet details in between - it was just what a country chic backyard wedding should be. 

Alex & Luke said their “I Do’s” infront of their closest family and friends at Luke’s parents property, the house he grew up in. Everyone watched them become husband and wife from straw bales and cheered with excitement with a glass of champagne. Love filled the entire day and these two couldn’t stop smiling. I was so honoured to be apart of this special day for them!

I know this blog post is literally way past due (…but I am playing catch up when I can!) as these two just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary, however… I want to wish them so many more years of happiness. I hope the next 11 + years is just as amazing as the first if not better!

Hayley & Patrick | Engagement

Fall is literally my favourite season (okay, besides the summer… I will always love warm weather!) but nothing beats those beautiful rich yellows, oranges and reds! Last October (yes, I have slacked huge on blog posts.. but for good reason! ;) I captured these two and their session is one of my favourites.

Hayley and Patrick you guys are such a fun, laid back and loving couple! I can’t wait to capture your special day in just 1 month. Enjoy the days leading up and the day of, it’ll be so beautiful!

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.

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!
