wine is one of my best friends.
coffee is a close second.
I am an energetic, loving, fun(ny) gal with an amazing fiancé named Matt (October 2020 can't come soon enough!) and an insane cat named Loki. I never planned on becoming a wedding photographer, it just kinda happened. I went to school in hopes to become a forensic photographer. When that wasn't able to happen, I decided to try my own thing, which has lead me to this amazing life! So besides loving wine and coffee, what else do I love? Well, for starters I collect shot glasses and vintage film cameras. Every city, province, state or country I visit, I make sure to pick up a shot glass for my collection. I can't function without at least a large coffee in the morning and I love Grey's Anatomy. Most importantly, personal or business, my biggest goal is to make everyone feel comfortable. Comfortable with who you are now, where ever you are in your journey we call life!

My favourite past time is wine touring. Shocking right? Matt and I have been to Niagara twice and every time we hit up new ones. This past time we stopped at Konzelmann Estates and, if you've never been, I highly recommend you check it out! Not only is their Peach Wine and Baco Noir delicious, the grounds are gorgeous and make a perfect backdrop for photos.
I love to travel! I have been lucky enough to travel to a few place in the USA, including Hawaii, as well as Greece, Mexico and Aruba (which is where the love of my life asked me to marry him). One of my business goals is to photograph a wedding in every country. So far, I've got Canada down, but would love to be able to photograph a wedding in each province. #careergoals!

My photographic style can be described as natural, bright with pops of colour in all the right areas. I try my best to capture you in your element by capturing the silly & wonderful moments of your day. My goal as your photographer is to give you the best experience you can have as well as delivering you beautiful images to cherish for a lifetime.
My clients just want to have a good time & the last thing they want is a photographer who bosses them around telling them what to do. They want someone who can capture their love, laughter & tears all while standing on one foot, balancing on a chair, knee deep in freezing cold lake water, or getting down & dirty in the mud. That, I will do. Whatever it takes to get the perfect shot is what I always say!
If this sounds like you & you don't think I sounds like a total crazy person (or maybe you do & you love it!) then get in touch because I would love to hear from you!
Emeline + Michael
We are OBSESSED with all our photos!
Each picture was captured as a beautiful moment in our love story + represents exactly who we are as a couple. Leesa went above and beyond any expectations I had! The dreamy editing is absolutely stunning + the genuine smiles + laughter she captured of us has me tearing up over here (happy tears of course)!! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
