About me
      My Philosophy

      AUTHENTIC STORYTELLING, NATURAL EXPERIENCE & HEARTFELT CONNECTION FOR THE ADVENTURER

      My photography and cinematography styles combine candid photojournalism and breathtaking, stylized portrait sessions to tell your story organically with a timeless film-like editing aesthetic.

      I want you to relax, and just be you. Your experience is just as important as your images. I focus on capturing genuine moments and emotions.

      I want to portray each and every couple and family the way they react to each other naturally. I want you to feel normal, and never like you’re in a stiff pose. Photographing people is about love, laughter, and all ‘The Feels’. I strive to capture that true connection and closeness.

      THE ARTIST

      I grew up in Southern Ontario, and spent most of my childhood behind a camera.

      After living in Vancouver, BC for over 10 years, my husband and I decided to join my sister and parents in Thunder Bay. We’re excited about our new home and enjoying the Northern Ontario scenery and change of pace.

      My life consists of hanging out with the loves of my life (my husband, Jon, and our fur-babies), snowboarding in Whistler, hopping down to Toronto to go to concerts, travelling, getting involved in our church community, sweating my butt off in yoga, and exploring local trails, eateries, community events, and festivals. I’m latte obsessed, and a bit of a wino. I love my family, movies, and art. I hate ‘shopping’, so I buy pretty much everything online; except books! (I could waste hours in bookstores.) I wear grey-scale clothing 90% of the time, and change up my hair almost every other month. I watch far too much Netflix, and binge watch almost every Sci-fi show I can sink my teeth into.

      Why Choose Cascades?

      Photography is a medium that affects everyone, capturing every milestone, large and small, throughout their life. So after one of the biggest milestones in your life, of course, you want stunning photographs to cherish for a lifetime, and generations to come.

      With over 8 years experience under my belt, you don’t have to worry about me missing a beat. You can trust that I’m going to capture everything — from the tiny details to the epic moments.

      At Cascades, I capture your wedding day with authentic, candid photojournalism, and stunning, organically romantic portraits.

      Rather than highly posed shots, my method is to use a hands off approach for most of the day and capture candid or spontaneous pictures of people, décor and action — in the moment. I choose angles and backgrounds that make everything look its best, and once I’ve done that, I try to capture ‘real’ from you, your family, and your friends.

      Then you get the cherry-on-top: a relaxed and fun stylized portrait session, where you are given small direction to get natural poses and reactions of you and your wedding party. At the heart of what I do I want to capture real emotion and connection.

      Photography is not just about the photographer. A couple’s willingness to have fun, enjoy the moment, and fully be themselves can take wedding photography to the next level!
