Jeyda and Jordan had been planning their Elora Mill wedding since before the pandemic. Sadly they had to postpone their original wedding. They eloped at home last year with just their closest family, and this was the big party with all their friends.
The forecast called for rain all day, but luckily I had the most down to earth couple who wasn’t even remotely bothered by it. This made for some epic photos with their clear umbrella’s, even their wedding party joined us outside!
Not only did we get beautiful photos outdoors, but we also took advantage indoors of the Grand Room where their reception was being held. That’s one of the things I LOVE about Elora Mill, any way you look is picturesque. Even though I’ve shot more weddings than I can count here, there’s always something new that catches my eye.
Jeyda and Jordan did a first look in their solarium suite (if you’re getting married at Elora Mill, you gotta get one of these rooms!). I love first looks, especially since your hair and makeup is super fresh at the start of the day for your portraits. But please don’t get me wrong, I also love the traditional way of seeing each other down the aisle for the first time. If you’re stuck on a first look or going the traditional way, feel free to reach out about it!
Thank you two for trusting in me to capture this epic day, I loved every minute spent with you, your friends and family! Just pure good vibes all around!

A little love note from the couple:
“I knew I wanted Sandra to be our photographer after she did such a fantastic job at the wedding of our very close friends – we booked her back in 2019 for our wedding planned for May 2020.
First off, Sandra proactively reached out to me before we had to delay our wedding for the second time to see how we were doing, offered to assist in any way she could, and wanted to block off dates we were thinking about. This was so extremely thoughtful of her in these challenging times. Sandra really cares deeply about her clients!
Now for the wedding day – I will come right out and say I was an anxious bride (I don’t like being the center of attention) and I was trying to brush off the rain. As soon as Sandra arrived she had a rain plan that also involved getting the photos outside she knew I really wanted – she felt like a close friend who had my back the whole day!! She was literally checking the weather radar looking for windows of opportunity for us while still finding fantastic indoor spots to get as may photos as possible. She made the day run so smoothly!
Now for the pictures – just INCREDIBLE – the delivery of quality and quantity is just beyond what we could have imagined!!!
I am SO THANKFUL we had Sandra for our wedding day – again, she felt like a close friend who had my back through the whole process!!”
