For the past few years I’ve lived in Vancouver. In March (2022) I moved back to Winnipeg to be closer to family. I am now ready to freshen up my Manitoba photography portfolio. If you’re from the area I hope you’ll consider booking a couple, engagement or wedding photography session with me. By the end […]

Manitoba Engagement Photography Locations

In March of 2022 I moved back to Manitoba from Vancouver. I quickly realized that a lot of Winnipeg photography studios had been wiped out by the pandemic. The problem being that over the past year I had fallen in LOVE with stylized brand work. Let’s just say I was determined to find a Winnipeg […]

Some of you may know that I run a secondary business called Stay Close Canada. In short, it’s a photography education business for creative entrepreneurs. Through it, I offer a variety of free and paid resources and workshops. When the pandemic hit, inevitably it meant no more in-person workshops at least for a year or […]

Katelyn – Graphic Designer Photography

I got to play around with a new style of shooting for Opus! Generally, I’ll only use on-camera flash when I’m in need of convenience like when shooting a dark reception at a wedding or capturing some epic dance floor pics. However, Opus as a brand LOVES harsh flash and is not afraid of shadows […]

5 Reasons to Elope, Especially During a Pandemic

Last week I got together with my galentine, Vanessa Mayberry to create some editorial Valentine’s Day portraits. There is a time and place for kitschy Valentine’s photos, in fact Pinterest is overflowing with them. I wanted to take a very different approach for this shoot and create some minimalistic valentine’s images. We kept the shoot […]

Editorial Valentine’s Portraits

Your wedding photography timeline is not going to be the exact same as Karen’s or Susanne’s, or Brian’s. Every wedding itinerary is going to be unique based on factors such traditions, family dynamics, wedding locations, and sunset time. However, not all wedding timelines are created equally. In fact, some wedding schedule’s make a photographer’s job […]

Planning Your Wedding Photography Timeline

I’m still not quite sure where the time went. Somehow our trip to Maui has flown by. Yesterday, I finally got around to editing the photographs. Before leaving I had asked countless friends and family members for their top Maui recommendations. Now that I’ve driven nearly a complete circle around Maui I want to help […]

Travelling to Maui during a Global Pandemic 

Back in November my friend Camryn Harder put together a beautiful styled shoot for a dozen Manitoba photographers. She coordinated Winnipeg vendors and couples to create a beautiful wedding scene. Everyone attending the event was able to capture images for their work portfolios. Camryn asked if I would capture some behind the scenes photographs. I […]
