I am frequently asked, “Do you have any photographers you’d recommend?” and the answer is yes. There is so many photographers that were an absolute breeze to work with. Photographers that made the day so much fun and so easy going that it didn’t feel like work. Seamless, and a perfect pairing. Well, that’s it folks! Never again will I have to scrummage through my memory to think of the best photographers we’ve worked with in the past couple of years. Now, because these are all people that we equally love working with, these photographers are not numbered from “best to least best” or from “1 to 10”, there’s no prioritizing and any and all of these photographers deliver exceptional work and were ABSOLUTELY amazing to work with. All these photographers were placed in an order without bias and we took them into a randomizer and this is the order that it was given back to us. Without further adieu, I present to you, the best photographers in Ontario (Toronto, Niagara, Muskoka)!!! I look forward to working with you all again!!
“I’m an adventure photographer specializing in weddings + elopements. I love capturing anyone who shares my passion for being wild-hearted + adventurous. I could spend my entire life chasing beautiful places with wonderful people.
My photography style is outdoor-focused, you could say I have a pretty large obsession with epic landscapes and finding places off the beaten path. I don’t want to simply show up and follow a strict timeline, I want to explore together, going beyond capturing beautiful photographs to creating a meaningful experience together that we can all enjoy. Growing up in the heart of “Cottage Country” has me constantly on the lookout for a good time, and I’d love to create that together. Capturing genuine moments becomes much easier when the focus is less rigid, and our time together becomes more about having fun than posing for photographs. If you’re looking for a photographer who cares about the deeper meaning behind your love, who cares about your story, and who wants to do more than simply take your photo, I’m your girl.”
“I am a travelling wedding and elopement photographer for the adventurous couples from Newmarket, Ontario. I view the world through photographs and am completely inspired by beautiful places. I live for the outdoors no matter the season and love a good adventure and love connecting with couples who share the same passion as I do for the outdoors and an epic adventure. My approach to photography is very simple – I believe in capturing your love story with all of its beautiful moments as the day unfolds. I am here to tell your story of unconditional love and all the moments both big and small that happen throughout your day. I want the images to represent you as a couple and for reach couple that is very different. For some that’s getting married on a mountain top and for others it’s saying their I do’s in front of an intimate group of family and friends on a dock. Everyone’s stories are unique and that is one of my favourite things – meeting and learning from each incredible couple what makes them who they are so I can help document and capture a snapshot of who you are in this moment so you can remember it for the rest of your lives.”
“I’m a fine art wedding photographer with an affection for wedding days, engagements, elopements, and portraits alike. I gravitate towards capturing authentic, light-filled images that will be cherished for a lifetime.
I feel blessed beyond measure that the Lord has given me the opportunity to pursue this passion as a career. I am a lover of soft, dreamy light and a cultivator of images that are both romantic and timeless. My journey into film photography has inspired an insatiable pursuit of beauty in the every day, a process that has been truly nourishing to my soul.”
“My style is modern, organic, airy and above all, honest. I strive to capture the real and the in-between moments. I’m all about creating a relaxed and candid environment during my sessions. To me, it’s about having fun and being completely present, so that you can really enjoy those moments together. And at the end of it, you will be able to look back on the photographs and relive those special, fleeting moments all over again. My work has been featured in prestigious wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Elegant Wedding and many others.
Let’s chat over a coffee and get to know each other! I can’t wait to meet you!”
“Hi, I’m Caroline. Ilove couples with adventurous souls – the free spirits, the barefoot brides, the ones who love their partners fiercely and unabashedly. I adore authentic and genuine moments and would so much prefer for you to live in the moment than to feel posed and unlike you. These are the eyes that I will approach your wedding day with.
More details about the person behind the lens? I currently have one tattoo that says “Tetelestai”, which is Greek for “It is Finished” or “Paid in Full”. This has significance for me, because it points back to the life of grace I received through Christ through which my whole life has purpose and meaning. I smile a gap-toothed smile which overtakes my whole face because I have baby cheeks for days. I credit this with being why people consistently tell me that I look like I’m fifteen, which I don’t mind all that much. I’m a big fan of tea (David’s Tea is a big danger to my bank account). I adore pandas. The Office will always be my show that I can watch and re-watch endlessly (and still giggle every single time Jim pranks Dwight). Donuts are my fave. Guaranteed I’ll fall in love with you if you give me a donut. (500) Days of Summer is my favourite movie to sit down to on a rainy day with a mug of tea. Because the soundtrack is the bomb (soundtracks are also a bit of a thing for me). But mainly because the scene with the juxtaposition of expectations versus reality is just the best. Also, I’m an English major so any time juxtaposition is in anything I’m instantly ready to write essays.”

“My name is Holly, I am a wedding + lifestyle photographer. I like taking pretty pictures, a good cup of coffee and going on adventures! My passion for photography started at a young age. I don’t remember leaving the house without a camera when I was in high school. At that time it was always a disposable, but hey, it did the trick. As the years passed my love for photography only grew stronger and I decided I needed to help people freeze moments in time that they can look back on forever. My goal is to capture people being themselves. Laughing, in love, happy. Candid moments to carry with us always. I want to photograph your special moments as they unfold naturally.”
“Hi, I’m Kayla. I’m an MBA graduate and former social worker. My husband Nigel and I live in Hamilton and we’re soon to be parents! My photography style is natural, authentic, and timeless. I have been described as calm and relaxed and believe that translates into how you will feel when working with me.
Instead of focusing on particular poses, I will prompt you into natural moments and movement. Every couple interacts with each other in their own way. My goal is to bring out those real movements so that you look back at your photos and feel they truly resemble who you are as a couple. I love people and love, and I get so invested in every couple that I meet. I want to get to know you and learn more about your story and what you do in your free time and what you love most about each other. I want to know every detail about your wedding day and what you envision and what matters most to you as a couple.
I love to meet my couples for a coffee or video chat so we can make sure we are the best fit for each other. Email me and let’s arrange a meeting – I can’t wait to get to know you.”

“My journey as a photographer is closely interwoven with my life with Angela. When I met her, it was as if I had put on rose-coloured glasses. The world became more alive and colourful. Everything felt different and I never wanted to lose that feeling.
So I picked up a camera. The artform has since embedded itself into our life and we experience the world together, seeing things not as they are, but how they feel. My cameras have become an extension of myself – like a third eye. Clients often tell me the camera melts from view. I don’t aim to stand out or make a production – I am just a new friend who has an uncanny sense for when things are about to happen.”
