Why Hire me as your Burlington Wedding Photographer and Burlington, Ontario Newborn Photographer?
When you hire a professional photographer you are paying for their talent, expertise, skill and quality. It’s not just taking a picture; its capturing emotion and providing the best images possible as well as professional quality products that withstand the test of time. A professional Photographer knows proper composition, focus and exposure. They know how to use their camera on Manual so they obtain the image they want, not what they hope to get. They have the knowledge and skill to use photo-editing software to enhance the beautiful images captured.
So why me specifically? I have been photographing professionally for 9 years. I was first really interested in photography in high school and took photography classes then. After I was done high school I worked at Black’s Photography for about 2 years. However, photography had pretty much always been in my family, as my mom worked at Black’s Photography for 27 years!
I have spent many hours learning new skills with in person workshops as well as online workshops. I am always learning and investing in my education of this business that I love so much!
I have photographed 100’s of weddings, newborns, and families and my experience and expertise prove that I can do anything thrown at me! I don’t let things stress me out, and in turn it allows you to feel more at ease with my confidence.
Let’s Break It Down…
My goal of capturing your wedding day is to make it as easy on you as possible. I want you to have fun and relax and enjoy this day! With my extensive experience I can provide suggestions for photo locations for Engagement Sessions and/or Wedding day photos. I am not just a Burlington Wedding Photographer, I photograph all over the Greater Toronto Area including Toronto, Hamilton, Niagara, St. Catherines, Mississauga, Grimsby, Oakville, Guelph, Kitchener, etc., so I can provide locations in many different cities. I will guide you through natural posing so you feel and look amazing!
I am prepared for any situation your wedding may throw at me! I have equipment for low light settings, I always have umbrellas in case of rain, and I always carry back up equipment so you never have to worry about not getting quality images.
I have relationships with vendors in the industry and can make some recommendations for some wonderful vendors in areas you might be struggling with, like Flowers, DJs, Bridal Salons, Hair and Makeup Services, Invitations, Videographers, Venues, and many more. I also help with the timeline for your day so you are not stressing about telling other hired vendors when they need to start or finish their service.
It doesn’t conclude at the end of the wedding day. Every image I take is edited in my style of photography, “trend inspired, refreshingly timeless”! And all my albums, wall art, “thank-you” cards, and prints are high quality professional products that will last a lifetime! I will assist you in choosing which images to display. The process afterwards is just as easy going as the photography itself. I never want you to feel stressed.
My goal is have you come back to me to photograph you in all life’s moments, which brings me to the next expertise area…
Just like with weddings I have extensive experience in newborn photography, Maternity Photography and Family Photography. I have attended numerous online and in-person workshops. And I have two children of my own, which is an essential tool in working with children of any age. My training includes, lighting, editing, posing, newborn safety, and so much more.
I have a great selection of props, whether it be for newborns, maternity, families I have everything that is needed, including headbands, newborn outfits, maternity dresses, backgrounds, seats, little girl dresses, crowns, baskets, etc.. This makes it stress free for you. You don’t have to worry about forgetting something at home when you are trying to remember the important stuff when getting out the door with a newborn baby. Or trying to find a maternity dress to showcase your perfect baby bump. And enhancing your family portrait session to co-ordinate with the background we are photographing on.
I have also won Best Photographer, Platinum, and Best Photography Studio, Gold in the Hamilton’s Reader’s Choice Awards in both 2016 and 2017!
So why hire me as your Burlington Wedding Photographer, Burlington Newborn Photographer, or Family Portrait Photographer? Because I pride myself in giving you the best experience and quality photography you could ever dream of! The old adage “you get what you pay for” is true. I hope you see the value in the photography I provide, a true professional photographer, and not just based on price alone.
