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 ridiculously happy people (just like you). 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.’ My goal is to make this whole process as easy (and 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, I drink loose leaf tea like its going out of style, and it takes me about 5 minutes to change out of my ‘real clothes’ and into my sweatpants when I get home.

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 as candidly as possible. I love real laughter and true emotion in photographs.

Ridiculously Happy Ppl

Many of my clients have said to me, “We’ve never done this before. We don’t know what we are doing, and we need your help!” If this sounds like something you’d say, this show is for you, because handing the selfie stick over to a professional photographer can be scary, but it shouldn’t be difficult.

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 don’t forget them on a memory stick somewhere. It starts with your planning meeting where I’ll learn more about you, your style, and how and where you’d like to display your photos. In the end your photographs will be perfectly bound and hung in your home exactly how you want them.

Testimonials & Reviews

Alzheimer Society of Grey Bruce

Since Sophia started photographing our fundraising events I've been spoiled with so many wonderful images to use in marketing for the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce. The hardest part used to be finding an image - now it's choosing between options.

Bethany & Adam

My husband Adam and I were very happy working with Sophia. She is incredibly reliable, she responded to our questions and concerns in a timely matter, and best of all she was super fun to work with.

Brenna & Jordan

Stop looking for a photographer and hire Sophia right now! We couldn't have imagined a better photographer for our engagement photos and wedding. Sophia worked with us to create a custom package, and was so responsive throughout the entire process. We kept saying we wished Sophia was in charge of everything for our wedding since she was so organized and professional. We will miss chatting with her on a regular basis.

Hair Body & Soul

Hair Body & Soul has had the pleasure of working with Sophia Lemon Photography on many occasions and we have never been disappointed. We are particularly happy with the headshots that she has provided for our website. Pleasing aesthetics is very important in our industry and Sophia continues to deliver top quality work. We highly recommend her.

Falls Family

Thank you Sophia. What started out as a simple photo shoot of my kids and me turned into a treasured artistic expression of us. Each time I walk by your work I am greeted by the perfectly captured smiles of my smalls: Ava and Sullivan. Am grateful for your help and creative talents. To anyone wanting to capture a unique expression of special moments in time I recommend you draw on Sophia's talents.

Drew Dudley in New York City

Sophia was the first professional photographer with whom I've ever worked, and since then, she's the only one I've ever used. Professional, talented, and remarkably flexible and easy to work with. And most importantly, the photos I've received have been brilliant...

Emily & Brandon

Sophia is amazing to work with! From the very first meeting over Skype, she was incredibly friendly and professional...She would email from time to time for more information and to see how planning was coming along, offering any help needed along the way...I would definitely recommend Sophia Lemon to anyone looking for GORGEOUS photos of any special events in life and love.

Jenn & Chris

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.

Jenna & Jesse

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!

I am so proud of this one! I shared my thoughts on how things don't in fact get better with age with friend and leadership expert Drew Dudley. "It’s interesting to discover what people have found to be true about life and leadership, but it’s fascinating to hear what they’ve found to be false. In the “sh*t that isn’t true” blog we explore cultural clichés and lessons you should “unlearn” on Day One." Check it out here.
