Who Am I?!

I’m Sophia, Silly!

I live in Meaford, Ontario and have been photographing families and weddings from Kincardine to Barrie and Toronto to Muskoka for almost 7 years now.

I spend my day-to-day creating art for my clients (that’s you, hopefully). And as a full-time photographer I am 100% dedicated to my clients’ experiences. I know how stressful it can be to plan a wedding or pull together a family of 5 for ‘a simple family portrait,’ so my goal is to make this whole process as easy (and dare I say, enjoyable) as possible.

Let’s See, What Else…

The Dirt

I wrote on the family piano as a child, I play a LOT of baseball (possibly too much), I love chocolate, and I much prefer a comfortable pair of sweatpants over ‘real clothes’ any day of the week! (Don’t worry though. I always dress the part for work.)

My photographic style, if you haven’t noticed already, is very natural. I hate posing for photos because I always look like a total awkward-panda, so it’s my goal to show everyone in front of my lens in a candid light. I’m more likely to ask you to look at each other than ‘say cheese,’ and I love real laughter and raw emotion in photographs.

The Goods

Artwork & Albums

Your photos should hang on your walls! I’ve witnessed how devastating it can be for people to lose every trace of their digital files, so I make sure my clients forget them on a memory stick somewhere. Instead, I provide my clients with gorgeous, custom artwork for their homes. It’s kind of my thing.

The whole process starts with your planning meeting in which I’ll learn more about you, your style, and how and where you’d like to display your photos. In the end your fondest memories from our time together will be perfectly bound and hung in your home exactly how you want them.

Absolutely the BEST photographer...She was so professional and so incredibly easy to work with. We just adore her and we are in love with the photos she took. I wouldn't trade her in for anyone. She accommodated us with our need to have our dog involved. Heck, he just loved her. If I could do it all over again...I would chose Sophia.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer! Sophia was so prepared and was in constant contact with us leading up to the big day! She accommodated our non traditional wishes and most importantly took the most beautiful photos that captured our day perfectly! I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Sophia knew exactly the kind of natural, candid photography we wanted to capture such a special day and she helped us prepare leading up to it with guides and other materials, and by meeting with us to get details sorted before crunch time.... The photos we have are so perfect and we'll treasure them forever!

When it came time for our engagement photo session, we found Sophia easy to work with and open to our ideas. As the pro, we were also very comfortable to ask what she thought might be best, and she always had ideas and guidance. Of course, the photos were great! The evening was fun and natural. We wanted our photos to look like us, and she did a great job of capturing who we are together.

Sophia was a part of our surprise engagement this December and Blue Mountain. My fiance was looking for a photographer in the Blue Mountain area and stumbled upon Sophia. She captured our story and the moments so beautifully, and even got us some proofs that night so we could share our excitement with our family and friends. Being that I was totally surprised by all of this, her pictures created such a wonderful memory of one of the best days of my life. She was very easy going and we had a lot of fun with her. She took us to a variety of locations so we could get different shots and gave us great suggestions of what to do since neither one of us had ever been professionally photographed. We would definitely recommend her. Thank You Sophia!

Sophia has now done two professional photos for me, and the feedback I have received for both has been overwhelmingly great. She has a calm laid-back approach that sets you at ease, even if you're not comfortable in front of the camera. And her results speak for themselves. She is my go-to photographer, and she should be yours!

We have hired Sophia as our photographer for our engagement and our wedding. We had our engagement photos done in November. Absolutely WONDERFUL. She did such an amazing job and made us feel 100% comfortable. She had great ideas and was so patient with our dog who was in some of the photos. We got our photos back so quick and the book she put together for us had us speechless. We are so thankful we found Sophia and we cannot wait to have her photograph our big day!

From my initial Skype meeting with her, to the correspondence in between and of course, on the big day, Sophia was incredibly professional, reliable and just very easy to work with throughout the whole process! My fiance and I aren't the most comfortable in front of the camera, but Sophia made the whole experience on the day of very relaxed and comfortable. Both Sophia and her assistant Katie, were fabulous on our wedding day and we would highly recommend her! We love our wedding photos and know that we will cherish them forever!

We had the best experience during our engagement photo session with Sophia! She was open to photographing us in some rather off-the-grid locations, was incredibly flexible with our hectic schedules, and was more than happy to photograph any silly ideas we had in mind, as well as providing us with excellent guidance as we were first-time subjects! With her professional but approachable demeanor behind the camera we felt at ease in front of it.

The Alzheimer Society

The photos Sophia provided of the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce first Masqued Ball were amazing! She captured the elegant masques worn by our guests, the beautiful look of the venue and the excitement of the participants at this very successful fund raising event. We truly appreciate having this incredible record of a wonderful evening.

Sophia was really great to work with. We met up with her a couple of times, and she was willing to work with us, and wanted to make sure we got everything we wanted. Sophia was always quick to respond to emails making the whole process really easy! Her professionalism and experience make all the photo-taking a breeze! The photos we have are amazing, and we couldn't be happier!
