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.

Wasaga Beach in the fall is pretty much drop dead gorgeous. It's my favourite time to photograph and it's also the best time to get your Christmas Card photos done. The Murray's agreed to come out to the sand dunes in Wasaga Beach to get their photos taken and we got...

The Complete 4-Day Sedona, Arizona Itinerary

I think I left my heart in the red rocks! In November 2018 my cousin and I conspired to surprise our moms on their spiritual trip to Arizona the following March. I know what you’re thinking - that’s some risky business. Although we went without knowing where they were...
