Saturday Vibes

Give me ALLLLLL my breakfasts in bed please! Especially when they look like this!

This little set up was made and styled by Carolee—she’s my side kick in all things commercial food + drink photography and brings the party to every shoot! When she’s not with me on a shoot she’s studying all the food trends and styling tips-keeping our work fresh!

Behind this photo: Crepes and fresh fruit served with Mimosa’s—who would turn that down? The mugs are from Canadian potter Dotti Pots Pottery, the tray was found at Carolee’s favourite Prop store in Buffalo. Give @CooCoou27 a follow on Instagram. Michael collects the greatest things and is a gem!  And the pour-over coffee pot is Chemex—the very best way to drink your coffee! 

While we had our little set up out I wanted to use a new backdrop that I had made this week so we whipped up a few more photos for Bloom & Co. There are a few new products being added to their shop! More Canadian made things!

The backdrop is just a very thin piece of wood covered in drywall. I have to paint it yet because it’s showing up a little more grey than I want. The plan is to make a few of these in different neutral tones so I have a variety of colours to choose from.

You can view more of my Commercial Photography Work and portfolio here. I split my time between weddings and commercial work and help Niagara Small Businesses out with their branding photography and create content for their social feeds. I love the variety of work that I get to do this way! 

Keep an eye on my Instagram this week as I’ll be posting about a CONTEST—designed especially for entrepreneurs! 

It looks like winter has finally arrived! When the wind settles down, I have to get out and capture a few Niagara Landscapes. Enjoy the snow, friends!  

The Hitching P'Oast 2.0

The first pop up Wedding event went off without a hitch… (too punny?) In September, Beth from Sparkle and Twine brought together a group of Niagara wedding professionals to host the first ever Niagara wedding pop up at Oast House Brewers. It was a perfect day!

Want to know how it works? It’s easy! Book your time slot-there are three on February 23! Invite 30 of your friends! Exchange vows—take a few photos as proof you said I do and enjoy a few pints!

Beth from Sparkle and Twine Events has literally planned everything:
Cathy Davis Officiants will be there for the ceremony
Bloom & Co will make your bouquet and will set out beautiful florals
You’ll have live music by Nathan Warriner
Your friends and family will be treated to Pints and a spread by Brushfire Smoke
AND there will be cake! Sweet Celebrations is joining us for this round!

Easy peasy—to make it happen get in touch with the Pop Up team!

Winnie Calvin 0085.jpg

It's the month of love! Perfectly fitting for a lovely wedding at Vineland Estates Winery. Winnie and Calvin kept it simple with an intimate ceremony in the carriage house and dinner with 20 of their favourite people. We found just enough snow to make their day look a little wintery and the reflection of the snow adds a soft light to their portraits! That's been the challenge this year-finding snow. But as I always tell my couples, it's not so much the location, or even the weather that matters; the camera is on you!
