How they work
Jennifer stands back and captures the special moments of your wedding day without interfering with it. For formal shots, she provides some posing guidance to her subjects. She captures approximately 50-75 photos per hour through her Canon 5D Mark III camera with a variety of different lenses -- and she always carries backup equipment. Couples will receive their images as soon as four weeks from their wedding day.

More than just a photographer...hire her now
We were incredibly lucky to find Jennifer, and the work she produced for us exceeded all our expectations. That our wedding was in a relatively remote location (Pender Island, BC) did not phase her in the slightest, as she was already familiar with it. The fact that we chose less-than-traditional venues for our ceremony and reception also gave her no pause. We were thrilled to see how she captured our ceremony, perched precariously on a prominent rock overlooking the sea.
Her talent and professionalism are beyond reproach, but an unexpected bonus we had not anticipated when we hired her was the calming influence and humor she brought to the day. Both my wife Katherine and I were full of nerves and, frankly, completely exhausted from working to assemble our very-DIY wedding. Jennifer got to know us, made us laugh, all while taking amazing photographs. Book her immediately. Other photographers will charge far more for far less.Sent on 12/10/2018

A beautiful partnership
Working with Jennifer was such a meaningful experience for my partner and I. We took a leap of faith and chose her as our wedding photographer over the handful of referrals from friends. Her portfolio and ability to capture moments in such a whimsical and candid way really spoke to us.Sent on 24/10/2018
The first time we met her was during our engagement shoot when we asked her to spend 5 hours with us in a car travelling to the spot where we got engaged just so we could recreate the experience. It was a big ask and she didn't hesitate for a moment to jump onboard with our vision. The pictures were absolutely stunning.
She had a wealth of knowledge to share every step of the way and truly became a partner for us during the wedding planning process, sharing ideas and keeping us organized leading up to the big day. Her talent and professionalism aside, Jennifer is someone you could spend hours talking to. She's genuine, easy-going and really cares to get to know you.
We received our wedding photos a couple of weeks ago and every single shot is beautifully captured and so special. Everyone we have shared them with has been blown away. Our leap of faith led to a beautiful partnership with Jennifer that we will treasure forever.

From the moment I met Jennifer I knew we'd found our wedding photographer. She's just such a joy to work with, has so many great ideas, and most importantly she takes such amazing pictures as I'd seen when I looked on her Website.Sent on 03/12/2017
I hate having my picture taken, and I'm my own worst critic when I look at photos of myself, however, Jennifer achieved the impossible in making me love our pictures and the candid shots especially were such a perfect representation of our three events. Yes we used Jennifer for all three and we had so many positive comments from our friends and family and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone who is passionate, interactive, patient and totally in control of the situation when everyone else around her is not. Trust me you won't regret it.

Working with Jen was an absolute pleasure. We had 3 different events (city hall wedding, small ceremony with family and a large cocktail party. Jen captured the sprit and vibe of each event perfectly. We wanted a photojournalistic feel and looking through the proofs really tells the story of each separate occasion. Jen is so easy going and made everyone very comfortable in front of the camera....she somehow managed to be everywhere and capture so many meaningful moments. She knew exactly what we wanted and hoped for and used her extensive experience to really capture beautiful shots. I can not say enough good things about working with Jen and I'm so thrilled that I have such beautiful memories of the happiest time of my life.Sent on 03/12/2017

Jennifer photographed our Toronto Hunt Club wedding this summer, and my husband and I both agree that other than marrying each other, she was the best choice we made that day. From our initial consultation to the end of the wedding night she was professional, easy-going, and always willing to go the extra mile by recommending vendors or meeting with us to go over the wedding day schedule. She truly was a dream to work with and her pictures have exceeded all of our expectations. We had a huge bridal party (22 people) and a large family, and she was able to politely and efficiently organize everyone for photos. Everyone we have shown our photos too has been absolutely blown away, and everyone in our bridal party and family commented after the day how lovely and professional she was. We could not imagine anyone more perfect to have captured our wedding day!Sent on 18/10/2016
