Wedding photographer, photography coach and lover of lazy cabin weekends and good company


This past winter, Kalina DenaultQuinn Cove and myself planned a Christmas styled shoot at Birds Hill park in Winnipeg. We wanted to get into the Christmas spirit and have some fun with a creative project! So we planned and collaborated with some incredibly talented artists from Winnipeg! Firstly, Jessica Kmiec Artistry is so talented and never disappoints with her makeup looks. I have worked with Erika B Nails on several occasions and it’s always a pleasure! She has done some of the most beautiful nail art I’ve seen and I’m always excited to see what she does next. Beauty by Fey did the girls hair and it was soft and romantic and went with our look so well! Throughout out shoot day, we travelled all around Birds Hill Park and we found some adorable locations.

Collaborating with other local artists is a lot of fun and I love to meet the other faces from my area. So if you have a vision in mind for a creative project, I would love to hear it! You can send me a message through my contact page here! Additionally, you can contact me here. Because of this, find me in Winnipeg. So forth, I am a Winnipeg Wedding Photographer! While I love Winnipeg, it is cold! Because of this, I wear warm clothes.
