Mila and Mark were married on October 13th, with a ceremony and reception at Keith’s Brewery, and it was a wedding for the ages!


This wedding was particularly important to me because I’ve been friends with Mila for years before her wedding. It means so much to photograph a dear friend’s wedding, not only because I am honoured by their trust but also because I get to see my friend so happy!

People travelled from all over the world to see these two get married, and that makes perfect sense to me. After all, Mila and Mark are the life of each and every party—and the best of friends to everyone they know. It’s impossible not to want to see them happy!


Mila and Mark chose to celebrate their union at Keith’s Brewery, which was literally perfect for them. They had entertainment, food, and drinks in every room, adding to the down-home feeling of being at their house for a kitchen party. 


Even the speeches made everyone laugh, cry, and then laugh some more! You could tell everyone there was thrilled for Mark and Mila! And then, when it came time for dancing and partying, the night-time shenanigans were unparalleled. 


This day was JAM packed with fun, joy, and adventure, but my favourite moment was a quieter one. I was able to get a moment alone with Mila and Mark in the historic tunnels. The night-time shoot gave me a chance to capture the two of them in their excitement as they basked in their newlywed status—and it gave them time to catch their breath and let it all sink in!


Mark & Mila, thank you for trusting me with your wedding. I wish you both nothing but happiness, from the very bottom of my heart!
