Hi. I'm Fiona! - a Toronto and Halifax Wedding photographer.
Who I am:
I share my time between the East Coast of Canada in Halifax and Toronto, specializing in photographing weddings and lifestyle. I love the best of both worlds - being close to the ocean at any time and being right in the city of where I grew up. I love living with my best friend and hanging out with our sweet 80lb greyhound. I secretly love being awkward and hopelessly ungraceful. I am overly emotional (basically ugly crying with every movie, every wedding..). I can eat all day long and will do so if given the chance.
What I believe in:
I believe in doing all things with the heart. I believe in waking up early to catch the sunrise and staying up late to watch the stars. I believe in exploring trails and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. I believe perfect is boring and that the best comes out of imperfection. I believe weddings should be 100% you and what you want, not what pinterest or others say it should be.
What I do:
I photograph life and it's moments. I aim to document your day so that you can spend the next 50 years reliving those feelings you felt whether it's the moment you saw your love for the first time, or when you listened to your best friend's speech or even, when you and your closest friends ripped it up on the dance floor.

I’m so glad you’re here and I can’t wait to meet you!
My Style & approach to weddings
Shooting weddings with a documentary approach means that I try to be as unobtrusive as possible, allowing things to happen and the story to unfold. I look for the perfect light while waiting for the quiet, the loud and all the real moments that happen throughout the day. I put my heart forth in everything I do. All my heart meaning that I am crying and laughing with you, all these emotions - I live to capture them one frame at a time. I'm always looking for that hint of a smile, that roar of a cheer and everything in between. Throughout the day, I love blending in with your guests and being right in the action.
I love being able to connect with and to know the people I work with. We work on fostering a relationship and connection so that you can be yourselves, whatever that may be (nothing is off limits!). The way you interact, fall and fit into each other's arms is different from any other couple and unique to you. I don't believe in (awkward) static posing (aside from family portraits!) but rather in the slow dancing, soft caresses and fleeting glances. The trust between us helps me to capture all those special little moments. Those in-between and sometimes imperfect moments are more often than not, the best moments. There is nothing more real than allowing you to be yourselves - capturing you and your love in this season of life so that you can relive the same feelings looking back at the images.
