Our Speakers


Meet Aleisha

Hi I am Aleisha, I love living in the quiet countryside with my husband Matt and daughter Evelynne. As a little girl, my mom and I would sit on the front porch on a rainy day and listen to the rain and thunder. Now that I have my own front porch I still listen to thunderstorms and watch the rain I love experiencing this tradition with my daughter.

My love of natural beauty and the outdoors is woven into the images I take, which are simple and timeless.  I focus on my couples– capturing their emotions and memories as they are experiencing them. 
I cherish the lasting relationships that are built with all of my clients. I love LOVE and I can’t wait to meet and guide you in your photography journey!


Meet Jen

Hello! I am Jen, a mother of two, photographer and teacher. I took my first steps into photography with the birth of my first child. His growth was so fast, that I became focused on documenting all his important moments. I found that the more I learned about photography, the more focused I became on how each small detail can be so important to document. I then branched out and have had an amazing opportunity to document other people’s memories and moments. Working as a second shooter for weddings has allowed me to grow my own style, while supporting other photographers and their business. I can’t wait to meet you all and discuss my adventures as a second shooter over the last several years!

Meet Kat

Kat Tepylo is a mama who believes she can make everything she sees on Pinterest. As a social media specialist she empowers businesses to harness the power of social media. Kat helps businesses develop a strong social media strategy, pairing compelling stories with engaging images to create content that sells. When not on her phone hashtagging away, you can find Kat chasing her 1.5 year old around, watching sports with her husband, or DIYing up a storm (and often all 3 at once). Kat loves a good hashtag and creating engaging communities online and in real life.


Meet Heather

Hi there !!   I am Heather and fully disclosure;  I am epically bad at these bio pieces.    So what can I tell you about me without sounding like an ad for a matchmaking site.   My friends will tell you that I am a hippie at heart. I do feel a bit of a Janis Joplin soul ( I drive a VW Bug named Herbie), but maybe with a twist of Meryl Streep.  I am a wife and partner to the greatest man.   We celebrated our 30 year anniversary with a vow renewal at the same venue;  on the same day. It was epic and awesome and so absolutely perfect.  I am a mom and a grandma.   Yes; I am that old. Well at least in earth years;  my soul feels about 31 and I can still do the same absolutely ridiculous; incredibly corny dance moves that I did at that age.

I love animals…  all animals. I am fur-mom to a Weimaraner and two Chinese crested and if you want to see me cry show me one of those facebook videos or a Disney movie.

I am a lover of life.   I love every exquisite, magical moment.

I value every connection;  the mystical bond that connects us to each other; it fascinates me and drives me to capture it.  I believe in the beauty that exists in everyone.  I love to laugh;  the world needs more laughter.

I love beautiful things that make me cry.  I love nature;  my hubby gave life back to a vintage trailer and we spend time together where there is no cell service,  but lots of space to create memories.  I believe in creativity; in pushing the limits.  I love the human face;  the stories a portrait can tell.  We all have stories; we all need to share those stories.  I love light; like really love it.   Light can set a mood; underline a mood or be completely over the top and in your face; but it is the thread that joins every story.

Not sure if you can tell by now but photography is not my job;  it’s driven by my soul and a yearning to create incredible stories of connection.  

I am so epically excited to meet you and so pumped to see what you create.

Meet Neena

Hi, I’m Neena. I was born and raised in Peterborough where I currently live with my Husband, Trevor and our little Australian Shepherd, Banner. When I’m not fully immersed in the wedding scene you can most likely find me at Kosh Lake no matter the season. It is there where all my wildly imaginative ideas start to form over a glass (or two) of red wine.

I come from a long line of female entrepreneurs who have helped shape the small business owner I am today. 

One of my mom’s favourite childhood stories of mine is when I used to run around the yard with my hands out trying to catch the airplanes in the sky. She has always taught me that the sky’s the limit – even though I may have taken it too literal. 

My goal for my business is for all my clients to feel a peace of mind after meeting with me and confident knowing that I will bring their event to life. Wedding Planning and Floral Design is my passion and brings me more joy than I know what to do with it at times. I truly pride my business in reaching further than the norm and seeing something beautiful and making it extraordinary.
