Erin + Ryan
{Strathroy Ontario Wedding Photography}

Erin and Ryan had a beautiful wedding reception on her parent's farm, the apple orchard was in bloom and there was no shortage of amazing photo locations! They were married at the same church Erin's Parents were married over 30 years before! At the reception the bride surprised the groom with a drone as a gift!!

Tasha + Derreck
{Atlantis Pavilions Wedding Photography}

So much care, thought and amazing DIY craftiness went in to the preparations for Tasha and Derreck's wedding and it was a pleasure to capture it all in photos. There were many highlights from the day but I think our evening rooftop photo shoot with the cinesphere in the background takes the cake!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Romantic, Elegant, Personal, Classy

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Seeing Derreck for the first time, I almost wanted to run down to him, and I kept being told to slow down lol, Putting on my dream dress, reading the vows he wrote me, that feeling of euphoria that this day has finally arrived!
Groom: Hearing Tasha's vows, seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress, and she looked absolutely beautiful. Seeing the vision we had for our wedding come to life, it was incredible!

Best wedding related decision: There is quite a few! Trying to do as much as DIY as we humanly can in terms of decoration, and small things here and there, because seeing the things we had made around the room kept making us smile and realizing our hard work had paid off. Guest were coming up to us telling us how personal our wedding feels, which we absolutely loved. Our awesome photographer Lindsay Ross from HRM Photography, she was a pleasure to work with and I will continue recommending HRM to every single person! Our videographer Greg Idasz from AV Artisan was absolutely fantastic. Pictures and your wedding film is what is going to keep reminding us of our very special day, so we went with the best! 

Favourite detail: the lit lanterns, our DIY centrepieces with pictures of us from all the places we had visited together, just reminds us how blessed and lucky we are to not only have each other but to go on so many adventures together.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Start DIY projects early and try to do as much as you can yourselves because it would mean that much more the day of the wedding. Do not sweat the small details, and do not stress the day of the wedding and enjoy it as much as you can. It will be one of the most happiest moments of your lives, and no one will notice the missing small details you were sweating about. Family and friends come to celebrate the love you share and that is all that matters. 

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Nothing! It was a dream come true for us smile

Best surprise of the day: Getting to read the vows in the drawing Derreck gave me.


Anything else you'd like to add: Research and splurge on things that matter the most in your wedding. For us it was photography and videography, and seeing the pictures (both engagement and wedding) we are so happy to have made the right choice with HRM photography! Both Heather (engagement) and Lindsay (wedding) are outstanding ladies, best in the photography industry, and have given us the gift of reliving our day through these pictures smile We will surely be going to HRM photography for any future photography needs.

Leslie and Tyler had a beautiful spring wedding at Bellamere Winery. We loved capturing this sweet couple's big day with their lovely families - everyone at this wedding was just so nice and pleasant to spend time with!

Katelyn + Jason
Beamsville Ontario Wedding Photography

Bride and groom sunlit image photo

Katelyn and Jason were so wonderful to work with and trusted my vision to go outside in the freezing cold to get some awesome magic light after the their beautiful ceremony and the night time photo! These two are absolutely adorable and so in love, they had a small celebration with their closest friends and family at the Redstone Winery in Beamsville which by the way was the first wedding they hosted at their location! Katelyn and Jason kept thanking me for coming out to Beamsville to London, honestly I can never say no to wine country, it's just so beautiful no matter what season! Congrats Katelyn and Jason, I had such a great time capturing your memories for you!

-Niki {London Ontario Wedding Photograpgher}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Classy, elegant, intimate, romantic.

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: The first look and walking down the aisle!
Groom: Seeing my bride walk towards me down the aisle and the night time pictures!

Best wedding related decision: To have a cocktail reception rather than a sit down meal - so much less work and equally as amazing!

Favourite detail: My aisle - it was exactly how I imagined it with the candles and rose petals

Advice for future brides & grooms: Relax!! This is the best day of your life, no matter what happens. Stressing about the best day of your life seems so counterintuitive.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Not a thing.

Best surprise of the day: Feeling more beautiful than I ever thought possible 

Anything else you'd like to add: Where's the question about the amazing photographer?! Niki, you rock and totally made the most of our short timeframe.
