WELCOME TO THE BLOG!

Hey I’m Marie!

I’m stoked that you’re here! I’m an adventure elopement and intimate wedding photographer based in Ontario but frequenting Alberta and British Columbia because I am obsessed with the mountains. I’m a passionate traveller and want to use my adventure expertise to bring you new ideas that you may not have considered and help bring your big dreams to life.

As a photographer I see you in all your facets. The best, the worst, the teary eyed, and the most gut-busting laughs you will ever have. That’s why I believe it’s my duty to act as your elopement guide, location scouter, and your trusted adventure buddy. Say hello to your new BFF.

Nottawasaga Bluffs Couples Session // Micaela + Charlie

Nottawasaga Bluffs Couples Session // Micaela + Charlie

This Nottawasaga Bluffs Couples Session was to die for. I chose this stunning location for a series of mini sessions in mid October and it turned out to be one of the most unique spots I've ever shot at. At sunset in October I was suprised to see it so quiet. The...

Collingwood In Home Family Session

Collingwood In Home Family Session

Welcome to the cutest collingwood in-home family session EVER. Kylie messaged me on instagram as most people do to book sessions to get photos done of her, her husband and 6 month old cutie patootie. We woke up to full rain in Collingwood so had to turn indoors for...

Summer Camp Themed Elopement in Collingwood

Summer Camp Themed Elopement in Collingwood

Summer camp themed elopements in Collingwood are my absolute jam. First because they're always filled with childhood memories. Second because they're almost always outdoors and there's something about nature that makes people come as they are, real and imperfect and...

Wasaga Beach Sand Dune Engagement // Meghan + Liam

Wasaga Beach Sand Dune Engagement // Meghan + Liam

Mini sessions are my FAVOURITEEE (not that I don't love spending hours with couples) but honestly most couples fall asleep after an hour of posing. I'm only slightly kidding about that. In all seriousness a quick 30min session is most times all we need to fill up the...

The Blue Mountains Engagement // Lauren + Scott

The Blue Mountains Engagement // Lauren + Scott

The Blue Mountains is gosh darn STUNNING. I don't care if you're from the city and think otherwise, if you haven't decided on where to take you engagement photos are looking for a beautiful location, you need to consider The Blue Mountains, Ontario. Lauren and Scott...

Adventurous Scarborough Bluffs Engagement

Adventurous Scarborough Bluffs Engagement

This was the first time I had ever shot in Toronto, believe it or not. I find that my style never really takes me to the city. Scarborough Bluffs however were on my bucketlist. I got the opportunity to visit the bluffs with this couple as I associate shoot with their...

Hen + Harrow Farm // Clarksburg Ontario

Hen + Harrow Farm // Clarksburg Ontario

 I say this a lot but this might be my favourite session ever. Not only did the photos turn out perfect but I was greeted with a white wine spritzer and was sent home with a bouquet of hand picked flowers. Not that I need to be pampered when I work but small gestures...

MONAT Girl Boss Photo Inspiration // Burlington, Ontario

MONAT Girl Boss Photo Inspiration // Burlington, Ontario

This was my first time photographing girl bosses like this. If you're at all into pop culture you'll know exactly what Monat is and probably what I'm talking about. The energy that these ladies exude is next level. Not only are they all beautiful but they're...

Fitness Influencer Photo Inspiration // Erin Barker Health

Fitness Influencer Photo Inspiration // Erin Barker Health

Georgian Peaks is hands down the best spot to get fitness influencer inspiration in Ontario. I mean, just take a look at Erin and this landscape. We did this session in early July at sunset and although we were a bit early, this mountain session was stunning. Erin...

Yoga Poses For Your Next Photoshoot // Yogi Edie Gudaitis

Yoga Poses For Your Next Photoshoot // Yogi Edie Gudaitis

I get referrals all the time from clients who previously booked sessions but Edie was one of the odd ones that was referred to me by a woman I had never met before! Having no prior contact or "get to know you" meetings I was pretty nervous to do this session. Who knew...

Wasaga Beach Family Session // Chelsea + Parm

Wasaga Beach Family Session // Chelsea + Parm

This beach inspired family photo session was the REALEST and I think the results speak for themselves. Families are always the hardest to photograph for me especially when I have to get the attention of TWO little ones. But when Chelsea contacted me about having them...

Northwinds Beach Family Session // Britt + Iain

Northwinds Beach Family Session // Britt + Iain

Sheesh! This sessions gives me all the feels. I never really thought I'd enjoy working with families because of the fact that I was intimidated by kids having none of my own (yet!) but the more I accept family sessions the more soft my heart gets. Family sessions are...
