Ontario wedding photographer for classic couples who believe that timeless trumps trendy

the details

After photographing weddings for the past few years, I've really come to value the unexpected, intimate, and joyful moments that take place on a wedding day. 

The hug your mom gives you before you leave your dressing room. The look in your groom's eyes when he sees you walking down the aisle. The way the two of you flirt and tease during the portraits.

This day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you chose. It's about celebrating the start of a new family. It's an honour to play a part in such a significant day and I hope you'll choose me to be a part of yours!

Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.

I check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day.

prep

Your wedding day has arrived! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let me get to work! I will make sure everyone stays on time and things are flowing smoothly. Not only will I be there to capture your day, but I will also be like another bridesmaid. Need your train fixed? Flowers held? Hair put back in place? I'll be there!

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.

Her light and airy photographic style is timeless and helped us capture the essence of our wedding day. She was engaging and provided great direction in helping us pose and capture both our portraits and family photos. We would highly recommend Michaila to anyone."

"Michaila is honestly amazing to work with. She will have you laughing the entire time. She is so funny and it really shows in her work having all natural smiles and laughter! I remember when I was in the process of looking for our photographer for the wedding and a friend had suggested her... I knew that she was the one! Her pictures are so timeless and there is just something about the colour that draws you right in. I have the most amazing pictures to look back on for a lifetime."
