{Katie & Murray} Niagara on the Lake Wedding

A gorgeous day for a wedding. Niagara on the Lake. A historical church. An intimate dinner. A dress that looks like a million bucks. And a couple that just can't stop smiling at each other.
We photographed Katie & Murray last fall in Muskoka, for their engagement session, and knew instantly that not only was this couple genuinely in love, but that they were really up for anything to get just the right photograph.

Their intimate wedding at the Pillar & Post Inn consisted of 42 people, including us. Surrounded by their closest family & friends, their Niagara on the Lake wedding was more than spectacular.

It was perfect, in every way.

Cayla & Kevin {Parry Sound Wedding Photography}

Bridesmaids in different coloured dresses, each with different flower bouquets. Groomsmen in shorts. A gorgeous wedding ceremony on a barge on Georgian Bay. And a bride in bare feet. Cayla & Kevin definitely kept their wedding day natural, and true to themselves.

This gorgeous couple's wedding took place just north of Parry Sound, at Dillon Cove Marina, owned by Cayla's family. It was a perfect spot! I was worried when I woke up that morning - it was thunderstorms galore. Luckily, it cleared up enough for the ceremony, and pictures in Georgian Bay afterwards. It did rain a bit later, but by that time all guests were safely back on shore, and tucked under tents at the reception on the grass.

Congratulations, Cayla & Kevin! Your day was amazing, and such a lot of fun. I'm so happy to have been a part of it!

Allison & Andrew's Wedding | Windermere House, Muskoka

A gorgeous day. A historical landmark resort in Muskoka. Loving friends. Excited family. Allison & Andrew.

Allison & Andrew's wedding at Windermere House in Muskoka was amazing in every way. From the moment we arrived, before Allison put on her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown, until way after their first dance on the stone porch of Windermere House, their day was nothing short of casual elegance.

Thank you, Andrew & Allison, for inviting me to be part of your gorgeous day in Muskoka!

Grace & Steve | Vaughan Engagement Session

I love when a couple can laugh together. Be themselves together.

Grace & Steve do all of the above. They didn't care about the rain. They didn't care about the mud or the dirt. They just wanted to spend time together.

We spent a few hours taking pictures in Richmond Hill, touring the large park of Richmond Green. Afterwards, we stopped by one of my favourite spots in the area, and a very easy going Steve & Grace trekked into a soaking wet and muddy field.

I can't wait for your wedding in October! I'm praying the day is slightly sunnier and much more dry then this one was!

Niagara-on-the-Lake Wedding | Carol & Randy

Niagara-on-the-lake. A backyard wedding. A ceremony under a tree. Surrounded by friends & family. Bride & bridesmaids in tuxes. It was beautiful, moving, and uniquely them. As all weddings should be.

Carol & Randy were worried about rain. Instead, we were blessed with insanely blue skies.

I love the sassiness of the girls in tuxes. I love the emotion Carol showed during the ceremony. But most of all, I loved the way Randy looked at Carol - like she's the only woman for him.

Congratulations, Randy & Carol! Thank you so much for choosing me to be part of your day!

Alexis & Phil's Wedding | Oakview Terrace, Richmond Hill

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding, and a better couple, to start off my wedding season this year. After an extremely exhausting Winter, Alexis' & Phil's wedding was like a breath of fresh air.

Both Phil & Alexis are amazing people, and together they're incredible. Their personalities shine through in every single picture we took!

After the sunny ceremony in the outdoor wedding chapel at Oakview Terrace in Richmond Hill, I asked Alexis & Phil if they were up for getting really creative for their pictures - luckily, both said yes without even a hint of hesitation. I had my eye on a gorgeous abandoned property down the road, knowing we'd be able to get some really fun shots there. It turned out to be one of the best locations I've ever shot in!

Alexis & Phil - thank you for choosing me as your photographer! Your wedding was amazing, and the best way to start the season. Every wedding will have to live up to yours now!

Cayla & Kevin - Parry Sound Engagement Photography

Cayla & Kevin are such a great couple! Their wedding is planned for August, on the shores of Georgian Bay, just north of Parry Sound. To offset the (gorgeous) summer wedding photos we'll do then, they decided to do a wintery engagement session. The weather actually co-operated with us, giving us a lovely blue sky to work with!

Cayla & Kevin were up for anything - trekking through the woods, trekking up rocks, and strapping on skates! I love every picture from our session, and I can't wait to head to Parry Sound again in August for their wedding!

Jen Shoots Weddings serves all of Ontario, including Georgian Bay and Parry Sound.
