Hello there, we’re Jacqueline & Braden
IT’S SO LOVELY TO MEET YOU
Together, we are a boutique wedding photography studio for the modern wild, romantics.
Our artistic direction focuses on the real & heartful moments of your day, and blends it seamlessly with a sense of beauty and a touch of ethereal romance. We believe that our work is more than just taking pictures. It is about observing the deep connections between you and your closest family and friends, while also anticipating those sweetly fleeting, in-between moments before they are gone.
We strive to create dream-like quality photographs that are as transportive and moving for the decades to come, as the day it was captured. A photographic style that blends cinematic, photojournalism with the seemingly effortless elegance of an editorial. When you sift through the photographs in the months and years following your incredible celebration, you will always remember how it felt on your day.
My personality, work and life experiences and my love for photography all combine the one thing I believe is more valuable than just about anything: telling stories. My desire is to tell your story in the most authentic way. I preserve all of your incredible moments, so you can cherish them for decades to come.
I lived in the heart of Rome, Italy, chasing a beautiful dream. My photography started out as a way for me to share my experiences with my loved ones back at home and across the world. It very quickly it grew into Espresso&Lace, which was nominated as one of the Best Arts & Culture Blogs in 2013 by Italy Magazine. It was here I shared my deep appreciation for the Italian culture and the modern and sophisticated life as a travel photographer and writer. From there, my photography business was born – I have never felt so fulfilled as I do behind the lens.
I was drawn to photography when I saw how happy it made Jacqueline. I’ve watched her grow her business over the years and it’s been incredible. After so many years of being in front of the camera, it really felt natural to transition to behind the camera. We’ve also met so many fun people along our journey. I’m excited for whats in store for us!
I’m a craft beer enthusiast. Jacqueline and I love visiting Niagara-On-The-Lake regularly and we always make a stop at my favourite place – Oast!
