      About Us

      Our Philosophy


      We are a husband and wife photography and cinematography team that strives:

      • to tell your story organically with a timeless film-like editing aesthetic.
      • for you to relax, have fun and just let you do you.
      • to focus on capturing genuine moments and emotions.
      • to portray each and every couple the way they are with each other naturally.
      • to never let you feel like you’re in a stiff contrived pose.
      • to capture that true connection and closeness.

      Capturing images of people is about love, laughter, fun and all ‘The Feels’.

      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 10 years experience under our belt, you don’t have to worry about us missing a beat. You can trust that we’re going to capture everything — from the tiny details to the epic moments.

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

      Rather than highly posed shots, our 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. We choose angles and backgrounds that make everything look its best, and once we’ve done that, we 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 we do, we want to capture real emotion and connection.

      Great photography and cinematography are not just about the person behind the camera; a couple’s willingness to have fun, enjoy the moment, and fully be themselves can take wedding photography to the next level!

      As a dual Canadian/American citizen, I am proud to be able to provide services along the entire North Shore of Minnesota, as well as Thunder Bay, the GTA, YVR and beyond.
