Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! I’m Fiona! Originally from Toronto but have lived in several different cities in the past few years! I am a serial hobbyist and a few of my favorite hobbies are cooking, knitting and all things DIY! My favorite thing is going on adventures outdoors and travelling! Life has been a little different with the addition of our adopted 80lb greyhound and I love having the excuse to get out of the house because of him!
What inspired you to begin wedding photography?
I started dabbling in photography in my high school dark room classes and fell in love from there!! It was only after university, studying subjects completely unrelated photography, that I started taking it more seriously and started my own business!
How long have you been in business?
It’s been almost three years!
Do you do Photography for a living?
Yes! I do wedding photography full time!
Describe your photography style.
My photography style can be described as documentary and photojournalistic! I love the story-telling aspect of photography and love telling couples’ stories through my photos. I stay primarily hands-off and don’t do a lot of posing (aside from family portraits). I love looking out for the raw, emotional and natural moments that unfold between the couple but also, between their closest friends and family. I love keeping things timeless and an accurate, authentic version of what actually happened so that couples can look back on their day to see things as they were.
Do you have an assistant on the wedding day? If so, why?
Yes and no. It’s up to my couples to decide if they would like to add a second shooter to their wedding day. There are pros and cons and really depends on the size and complexity of the day! I would say it’s a 50% chance that my couples decide they would like to have a second shooter to the day.
How important is Photoshop in your final images?
I primarily use Lightroom to do all the editing of my photos - all to the aesthetic of my branding. My edits are natural and reflect close to what we see in real life. I use natural light in my photography and so really depend on the natural lighting to allow my subjects to stand out. I occasionally use Photoshop to clean up some of my photos but that’s about it (no retouching!).
Where would be your dream destination to photograph?
There’s so many places I would love to photograph! In Canada, I would love to shoot a wedding in PEI, Newfoundland and British Columbia. I would otherwise love to also shoot a wedding in Hawaii or Alaska!
Do you offer customizable packages?
I do special pricing for destination weddings and smaller weddings/elopements (less than 30 people).
How much should I budget for my photography package?
My packages run upwards of $2550 featuring a half day package and a full-day package.
"Fiona is the best photographer ever! We hired her for our engagement shoot as well as our wedding day, and we couldn’t be happier with her work. Her style is exactly what we were looking for; candid and emotional (as well as perfectly composed “staged” shots for our families). Everyone who has looked at her photos has said the same things - “amazing, stunning, powerful!”. I will continuously recommend Fiona to our family and friends, she is a great blend of professional and fun. I honestly don’t know how she got such a variety of shots, and she got all of them edited and back to us faster than I had expected. Thank you for fitting into our wedding so seamlessly and for the amazing photos! We are incredibly happy we chose Fiona!" - Robyn & Brendan
"Choosing Fiona to capture our wedding day is a decision I will never regret. We are so lucky to have found someone who just clicks (both literally and figuratively) with us in the way that Fiona does. I could not have dreamed of more beautiful photos, and we had so much fun with her by our side! If you're looking for a photographer who actually captures your day and doesn't go through the motions of "standard wedding photos checklist", look no further." - Kelly & Jake
