Trash the Dress a.k.a. The Day After {Pam & Darryl} in Owen Sound

Melissa had the privilege of not only shooting Pam & Darryl's wedding but also a trash the dress or bridal session after the big event. The three of them toured around Owen Sound to cature these fabulous images.

I love this wall!

Taking the plunge...into Georgian Bay!


Congrats again you two, looks like married life is treating you well.

Baby Photos in Port Elgin, Ontario {miss emma}

I was so happy to hear from Miss Emma's parents when they emailed to do this session. I shot their wedding way back in 2005 and had such a great time with them. Miss Emma was so sweet for our session!!

We spent a lot of time trying to get a smile from her, I think we got a few, but she was mostly into her tongue that day...something new that she brought out just for me.

Thanks for having me guys, it was an honour to capture another important time in your lives.


p.s. you guys inspired me to use cloth diapers with Luke. I had used them with Madeline but had so far been too lazy/busy with baby #2. It is going well, although ours aren't as fancy as Miss Em's.

Family Portrait in Owen Sound

Playing catch-up again with portraits! This lovely family bid on a session at a fundraiser that is dear to my heart. We had a great time at the Conservation Authority, the water was just at the right level for us to play on the rocks.

Thanks guys, your money went to a great cause!

Baby Photos in Owen Sound {Baby Michael}

Waaayyy back, at the end of July, I photographed this little man. I bet he is already twice as big! I hope these photos bring back memories of how he was as a wee man. Can't wait to see him again for his next session.

Michael is pretty advanced for his age, note the "i love you" in sign language above...I don't think it was an accident, he knew what he was doing.

Love his smoochy face above.

Thanks for being so patient with me guys!!! Hope you think it was worth the wait.

Cobble Beach Wedding {Chris & Lesley}

Posted by: Christy

What a fabulous wedding! I didn't get to see this couple together until the wedding day but I knew that they would be fun. Melissa shot their engagement session last winter when I was very, very pregnant. I processed that shoot and could tell they were so energetic and in love. Check out the e-session here to see what I mean.

The only issue that happened on their wedding day was that the ceremony had to be inside due to some untimely rain. It did clear in time to do outdoor photos afterward, yay!

Loved their entrance and reception attire...note who is wearing the C on her sweater.

Holly and I had a great time guys, thanks for having us.

Sauble Beach Wedding {Adam and Jenn}

Posted by: Melissa

Well I said in my blog post for Jenn & Adam’s engagement session that I knew it wouldn’t be as cold as it was then! Well, it wasn’t!

A bit overcast (which didn’t bother me one bit, as it makes for fabulous photos!) and a “barely there drizzle” which didn’t last more than a minute, and wasn’t noticed by anyone!

I really enjoyed this bunch! I’ve known Adam since I moved here in Grade 4 and also went to school with 2 of his groomsmen, Joel & Rich…all former “frog friends” (French Immersion)! So not only was a old friend getting married and I got to share this experience with him, but it made for a mini reunion as well!

It was nice to see everyone grown up and doing well!

Jenn you were a delight and looked beautiful, it was a pleasure getting to know you!
What a lovely day!

Thanks guys…all the best!

“Congrats Adam & Jenn!!!!”
