Whimsical. Magical. Romantic. Timeless.

We are passionate about photography – but we're also passionate about art.
We believe your wedding photography should be real, raw and full of the fairytale magic that makes your heart flutter.


We do things differently – and our couples love it.


Having photographed over 700 weddings in Ontario and abroad – we've polished our approach into something simple and beautifully effective. With wedding photography packages starting at $2695, we're also beautifully affordable. 


Your photos should be as beautiful as your love


It's in the fleeting glances, the way you hold hands, the laughter that erupts when an inside joke slips out. It's in the way you fit perfectly together and the magical moments between the photos – that are the actual photos. We not only get it, we specialize in it.

We have had the pleasure of working with VanDaele & Russell on multiple occasions and each time was just incredible! They are true artists and really in their own category when it comes to wedding photography. We were in love with our engagement photos, but our wedding photos went beyond what we could have ever imagined! They were not only able to capture the natural beauty of our venue with such creativity, but also captured the candid moments that we will cherish forever. Van Daele & Russell are talented and true professionals.

We don't do cookie-cutter photo shoots


In all honesty – if we went out and did the exact same shoot every day, we probably wouldn't be wedding photographers. We like to keep things fun and personalized uniquely for the two of you. We love working with couples that love photography, and are excited to work together to create some awesome art!

You made me calm from the second you stepped foot in my house. My friends (who have been in many, many weddings) said you were the BEST photographer they have ever worked with. You have an art at capturing moments without them being staged. You allowed my day to go on without interruption. I simply cannot express how much I appreciate how calm and comfortable you made me feel.

Then the photos came. I couldn’t stop crying. When asked how I envision my wedding day, I said I wanted it to reflect my love for Chase and our families and to be a great time, along with elegance and style. All of your pictures captured these things. They were PERFECT. If there was a better word than perfection, I would offer that to you.

We are lovers of light


If there's one thing we absolutely can't get enough of, it's dreamy, magical, fairytale night photography and the rosy hues of the Golden Hour! Dramatic enough to be called epic, yet romantic enough to be called dreamy. The perfect combination for a perfect wedding day.

2.5 hours, 1.5 bottles, and a handful of Kleenex later I have no words – you captured the day perfectly. I truly felt that I was reliving the best day of my life again. You captured every single one of my memories (and more); for this I can never thank you enough! When you’re a bride everyone tells you how quickly the day goes by. They’re right - the time flies on your wedding day and there’s nothing you can do to slow it down. What I can tell you is that I am so thankful that I found a photographer who got to know us and was able to freeze those moments, exactly as I remember them, in photographs that will be with us forever.
