Our photography began in nature where we captured award-winning photos of the natural environment but we were drawn to people and capturing the richness of their emotions in photos that will last forever. We use different lenses and angles to create unique compositions. We have worked with many couples planning weddings and elopements throughout Edmonton and the Rocky Mountains and continue to love every minute of what we do. [Edmonton Wedding Photographer]
My passion for photography began at an early age and grew in the darkroom of my high school. I began shooting weddings as an assistant/ second photographer and took the leap into my own business more than a decade ago. My enthusiasm for wedding photography stems from an interest in connections, whether between the couple, family or friends (the family we choose), and a desire to work with people. I enjoy the excitement, mirth, and frenzy of the wedding day itself and love the chance to create joyful, creative, emotive or unexpected images for my couples. My other passions include hiking with my dog, running and enjoying the outdoors. Or on lazy days a good book with a cup of tea. [Edmonton Wedding Photographer]
I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer located in Olds Alberta, Canada. To sum me up; I'm a mom to two amazing boys, married to my best friend for over 13 years, a community volunteer and an outdoor enthusiast. I've lived in Alberta for over 15 years but I originally called Ontario home. Growing up in the stunningly beautiful area of Muskoka and Georgian Bay; a passion for landscape photography began at a young age. I grew up with a camera in hand, using film and a dark room. I always loved landscape photography (and still do; you can check it out on Instagram @_sarahmanton) but ten years ago friends of mine really pushed me out of my comfort zone and asked me to be their wedding photographer. After that first experience (despite it being terrifying) I was hooked! Capturing the love between families and couples is such an honour. Love is Love and its inspirational, uplifting and the world always needs more. My approach to capturing you is simple, natural, laid back and non-intrusive. I take a photojournalistic approach, focusing on moments and details; more candid and less posed. I want clients to enjoy their experience with me and absolutely cherish their images.

I am a freelance wedding photographer from Toronto. Besides the wedding and elopements, I also cover photoshoots for newborns, family and candid couple portraits. My father being a passionate photographer introduced me to a camera in my early childhood. I was so surprised and amazed at how a tiny device can capture moments and lock them away forever. Even having a Bachelors degree in Pharmacy - just didn't felt enough to be satisfied and so I decided to follow the passion & started AS Photography in 2012. [Brampton Wedding Photographer]
Emma Rose has had a life-long desire to capture the beauty in people, their surroundings and their emotions. What started as an exploration of all different types of artistic medium, including watercolour, acrylics, charcoal and pastel, turned to a more immediate capturing of people on photographic film in about 1997. Emma started photographing weddings in 1999 in Vancouver, and was immediately drawn to them as a venue for capturing people at their best and at a turning point in their lives. When she moved back to Halifax in 2002 she started what may have been the first photojournalistic wedding photography business in the city and quickly carved a niche amongst more traditional portrait photographers. When clients cried while looking at their wedding photographs, Emma knew there was something special in the way she captured weddings, and that continues to give her the energy to push the limits of creativity at each wedding. With just one photography and darkroom course under her belt and a handful of art classes, Emma is primarily self-taught in composition, technical elements and lighting with years of studying and appreciating all types of art.

Hi! I am a wedding photographer based in Kelowna, in the gorgeous Okanagan Valley of Canada. I've been photographing weddings professionally since 2010. I love learning about people - their personalities, relationships, values, dreams and unique journey - then capturing this in my photography, creating dynamic story telling imagery. I'm always thinking of where that photo will be in 50 years, who it might impact and how the viewer will connect emotionally with my work. I now photograph between 25-30 weddings a year with my husband Andy. Together we are able to accomplish some pretty incredible things, and have poured our hearts into constant growth and the mastery of light. I constantly strive to take my work to the next level, using the highest quality cameras, lenses and strobe lighting to compose beautiful works of art that captivate people's imaginations and senses. As long as I can remember I've been creating, working hard, and dreaming big. I love to construct, creating extraordinary out of the everyday. Most of all I love to connect with individuals, encouraging or inspiring them in some way with every encounter. I bring all these skills to our photography business. They have laid a firm foundation for all that I do as a professional photographer. My photographs have been featured in numerous print and online magazines and blogs. As Jessica and Andy Studios grows I hope to positively impact my community and the lives of my family and others, as a direct byproduct of our work. It is an incredible honor to document each wedding and to produce images that will become my client's most precious heirlooms. As a wife and a mother to 3 beautiful kids, I know how priceless great photos are. They are a valuable investment worth far more than gold. I would love to be your photographer!

I’m Lisa Novakowski, the person behind the camera at Lisa Novak Photography. I love the great outdoors, hiking, kayaking, camping, cross country skiing, sitting outside in the evening with a good book and a glass of wine (that’s still the great outdoors, right??). I REALLY love photographing people. Portraiture and weddings mostly. It is hugely rewarding for me when the person in front of my camera lets their guard down and gives me a glimpse of their true self while I’m shooting them. That they would trust me enough so let me see them that clearly is humbling and incredible, and it makes my heart happy. I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and knew by the end of that day that I had found what I was meant to do. I love this career so much! I have been photographing weddings ever since, and I've been a full-time photographer in Kamloops since 2009. My downtown studio provides an opportunity to meet with future wedding clients in a quiet and comfortable location. Getting to be part of a wedding day is one of my favourite things... I specialize in documenting all the moments and emotions of the day and mixing in beautiful creative portraits. [Kamloops Wedding Photographer]
