Celebrating the REAL

stories of joy-filled

families and couples

go behind the scenes

For me photography has always been so much more than a beautiful image. It is the story behind the image that I strive to show through my work. When I meet my clients, forming a relationship with them is so important to me for this relationship allows the shoot to be effortless, fun and most importantly, the photos end up having a unique beauty to them because they are authentic.

“When my husband and I started to plan our wedding, the one thing we were certain about was having Tonya there to document all of the special moments. We had been part of a wedding that Tonya photographed the year before and she was so much fun to work with and did an amazing job. It was a no-brainer. When it came to our wedding, she did not disappoint. It is so clear that Tonya is passionate about her work and committed to her clients. She was always available to answer questions and met with us to go over our wishes for the day. The entire day was absolutely perfect. It felt so natural to have her there sharing in each part of the day. She was able to capture the heartfelt moments that we shared as we became husband and wife and every other detail in between. Tonya is a kind-hearted, easy going and fun-spirited person and creative and talented photographer. Put all of those things together and you have the real deal. I love going through our pictures and reliving the day that she captured so perfectly and I am thankful each time that we had Tonya there to do it. We didn’t just get a photographer, we gained a friend. We look forward to having Tonya capture the special moments in our lives for years to come.”

“Amazing would be an understatement - Tonya has exceeded all my expectations and really goes above and beyond. When I received my photos, I was absolutely over joyed and blown away! The photographs were beautiful and she captured all the magic of my relationship which gave us all the feels. It never felt staged and it never looked posed. They were authentic, fun and just heartfelt.

I provided her with ideas that I had wanted; location, style and poses. (Both sessions we did were outdoors; Spring & Fall) She scouted and found gorgeous outdoor locations that I never knew existed and brought my vision to life. She has an eye for the beauty of nature- she picked the best times of day so the colours would pop and the sunlight would hit exactly how I wanted. This left our photographs with a majestic feeling.

Tonya is so easy going which made it easy to be ourselves and not feel awkward. We felt like we had known her forever! That’s how awesome she is! We would laugh a ton (and be serious when needed) and have fun on set- being ourselves and forgetting she was there. That’s when she'd capture the most authentic moments and turned them into beautiful photographs for us to cherish. I can’t wait to do more sessions with her as she truly has a gift in photography but also capturing those special moments. Highly recommend!”

"Tonya is one of the most incredible photographers I have ever worked with. My fiance and I got our engagement photos done by Tonya and, even though my fiance doesn’t love being in front of the camera, Tonya made the shoot so relaxed & fun! She helped guide us with poses and came up with so many amazing ideas. I had a vision for our shoot and Tonya took that vision and, with her incredible talent and eye for creativity, made it come to life! If you are looking for a photographer who is passionate, creative and has a knack for capturing your special moments, Tonya is the photographer for you.”

“Tonya did our wedding photos and we couldn’t have been happier! Right from the beginning she was so easy to work with. She was one of the only things that was easy throughout our wedding planning and day. We sat down prior to the wedding to make a list of photos we wanted so that on the day we weren’t panicking and missing any important photos we knew we wanted. We now have a beautiful photo album she made full of our wedding photos we will cherish forever!!”

“We have done many family photo sessions, who doesn’t want to capture those precious moments of kids growing up?! Our mini session with Tonya was by FAR my favourite. The amount of time was just enough to get amazing images and just enough that our kids participated well. Tonya was so professional and friendly, like working with a friend. We absolutely loved all the shots she gave us and we had more than enough to print and proudly share with family and friends. We will definitely be booking again.”

“We have been so grateful to have Tonya be our photographer for our special family moments. Tonya has captured beautiful images of our children for Christmas and helped us announce the birth of our third child! Her warm demeanor put us so at ease and allowed us be ourselves in front of the camera. Coming to our house for our newborn session was wonderful and relaxing at what otherwise can be a stressful and exhausting time. We will continue to have this very talented photographer capture our precious moments.”
