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



Kyle & Bianca

Bianca & Kyle are two amazing people and it was so sweet to meet them. Bianca has her own handmade business called Crimson & Violet. When I heard she sells natural beauty products, it got me so excited! I love finding new local businesses to support! I can’t wait to get my hands on some! Kyle works at a bible camp and also helps out with Bianca’s business. They are really such an inspiring couple! During our Winnipeg In Home Shoot.

Bryan & Jess

Jess is one of my best friends and hanging out with her and Bryan was so lovely. They both have the sweetest souls and it’s so easy to talk with them. When they are together it is so incredibly obvious how crazy they are about each other. Soon after this shoot, Bryan took Jess to his family cabin and proposed to her! It makes me so happy to see how happy they are together and just look at how cute they are!

Jason & Allison

These two were my final couple for that day and it was such an amazing ending to a perfect day! They are recently engaged and this was such a fun way to capture their engagement. Their love is so gentle and sweet and I had the best time ever getting to know more about them!
