Wedding day bliss is my favourite thing to capture! I find joy in your joy!

My husband is my greatest blessing & bestest friend.

The chandler to my monica,

the d'artagnan to my constance.

My secret wish is that a food genie existed. Like, Aladdin's genie but with never-ending wishes, and only wishes about food.

now that i've said it, you know you're secretly wishing for it too!

Putting me in a car with a throwback playlist is probably one of the most entertaining things you'll see.

I know it is for alex lolol

RW & Co. is my go-to for all my dapper needs.

but really, i'm just basic.

My favourite part of the wedding is hanging out with the groom and groomsmen before the ceremony.

they make for some killer studly photos!

When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me on the tennis court!

you may have seen me coaching at the royal city tennis club!

My favourite way to relax is watching the latest vines with Ariana.

...and re-watching our favourite ones!

KIND WORDs

I don't think I could say enough amazing things about Ariana and Alex!! I have worked with them on a few occasions and both were amazingly fun and resulted in stunningly gorgeous photos!  
- Heather (Red Bicycle Paper Co)

Ariana & Alex are a pleasure to work with. They were incredibly competent, professional, prompt, and committed to making the day a total success. And they were a ton of fun, too! I look forward to seeing how the photos turned out. I have no question in my mind that they will be absolutely stunning. Thanks so much!
- A.T.

I've honestly never met anyone so sweet and approachable. Ariana thinks and takes care of everything and is incredibly talented. I would 100% recommend her to anyone!
- Victoria K-H., (Victoria Monique Designs)

 As a fellow photographer, I can say with certainty that she is truly passionate about her photos and job as a photographer and biz owner, sweet as pie, and amazing at what she does! She treats everyone she meets with respect and kindness and is so enjoyable to be around!
