Love Letters

It has been an honour to work with incredible people including engaged couples, generational families and families-to-be. I have photographed more than 250 weddings and continue to be honoured both by the opportunity to document important milestones in my clients' lives, and also by every kind note I receive. Here are a few of my favourites...

Jessica + Chris

Wedding at Valley Croft Event Centre, Horseshoe Valley, Ontario

Jessica's Words: "Simply the BEST!!! Elaine is a very knowledgable, friendly, animal loving professional photographer. She follows the highest standards and went above and beyond for us from start to finish! I am so so happy we chose her to be part of one of the biggest days of our lives. We ended up planning our wedding when covid hit and were still able to have our perfect intimate wedding! We also had her shoot our engagement photos and had a fun and relaxing time which included our dog of course! Elaine is quick to respond to any questions and is very thorough and informative! I really loved how she captured our prefect fall wedding and now we have a beautiful album that we can share with all our family and friends! She also does all of her own photo editing which speaks to how dedicated and genuine she is with her profession. My husband and I will recommend and use Elaine from Flashback Photography for all of our future milestones to come!"

Youstina + Matthew

Proposal Session at Glen Oro Farm, Oro-Medonte

Youstina's Words: I just wanted to say thank you for the incredible pictures! I can’t thank you enough. You captured the most important moment in our life perfectly. Looking at the album brought back all the emotions we felt that day. You are so talented!

Bea + Shyam

Engagement Session at Tiffin Centre for Conservation

Bea's Words: I met Elaine at a bridal show while scouting for a friend, and was blown away by her photos and attitude towards photography. Her albums caught our eye first (they are high quality, and clearly painstakingly designed on every page). But what really stood out was how much she cares about the art she creates.

Having now done our engagement photos with her, I highly recommend hiring her for your wedding or frankly any photography. The photos we have received show us so naturally, as though they are candids taken by a friend (if the friend was also a phenomenal photographer who always got our good angles). She also handles light very creatively, and each photo is truly a piece of art, rather than a staged portrait like so many wedding photos seem to be.

I could ramble about her photos for ages, so I'll finish by saying that personally, Elaine is also a delight to work with. She is kind and open, and professional in all aspects. She also did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable, so that we wouldn't look awkward in our photos (which I think is a common fear for those of us not used to photoshoots!) We can't wait to have her capture our wedding.

Katie +Jordan

Wedding at Quayle's Brewery

Katie's Words: Elaine, I have worked in the wedding and event industry in the US and Canada for the past 12 years. You impressed me from the moment we met. Your responsiveness to emails, your flexibility to meet, your confidence, professionalism and your congenial personality is second to none. I never had a doubt that you would deliver on your promises and take care of all the details and moments we wanted captured on our special day. Your direction to us and the group for the pictures, the way you work with light and candid moments captured of our guests were simply perfect. You are a master of your craft and anyone who chooses to work with you will be nothing short of amazed with the final results. You even arrange for a back up photographer in the event that you get hurt or are sick! This is a level of comfort that you don’t often get. When you have a venue where everything is outsourced knowing you are so solid was one less thing to worry about. From the bottom of our hearts- thank you for capturing the moments we had and the ones we weren’t there for. These pictures will be forever displayed and cherished. When I look over them I can feel the emotions of the day. You captured our dream! The love, the laughter, the dancing and some good old backyard fun. Thank you. We are so glad we chose you to capture the moments of our day.

Sam + Eric

Engagement Session at Aurora Town Hall Trials

Sam's Words: A huge thank you to Flashback Photography for making two incredibly awkward people look almost like they might be naturals in front of the camera. Absolutely love these pictures!

Wedding Portraits at the Tiffin CentreLorrie + Marc

Wedding at The Tiffin Centre for Conservation

Lorrie's Words: I first met Elaine at a bridal show. I loved her style and knew we could trust her to capture our special moments. Elaine was our photographer for our engagement shoot, our wedding and most recently our family fall photos. When you find a photographer who can perfectly capture your moments that make you look back and feel like it was just yesterday bringing back all the emotions and memories, you gladly use them again. Elaine goes above and beyond wether it’s trekking through minus 20 degree snow in the woods, wadding knee deep in a pond for the perfect shot, or simply crawling through the leaves with a 2 year old. We are so happy with ALL of our photos and memories thank you Elaine we will be using you again in the future.

Mory + Evan

Wedding at Dundas Valley Golf + Curling Club

Mory's words: We chose Elaine after meeting her at a wedding show. We were so impressed with her pictures and she was so nice. This was further proven by her willingness to postpone and accommodate an ever-changing wedding due to Covid. She was so great and made the process stress free. She was great on the day of the wedding. she brought along a second photographer, Max, and he was also great. They were both so friendly and made us so comfortable I look forward to having her be our photographer in the future! While we have not seen all our pictures yet because our wedding was only a couple of weeks ago, we have seen the highlights she sent us and they were amazing! Thank you Elaine!

Alhana +Tyler

Wedding at Brooklands Farm

Alhana's Words: Elaine was an exceptional photographer. She helped to capture our wedding not once but twice! With the COVID restrictions we had a small ceremony and then when we were able had our reception. Elaine was friendly, optimistic, and accommodating. We have just received our album and we are so pleased with how it all came together! We highly recommend Flashback Photography!

Katelyn + John

Family Portraits in Horseshoe Valley, Ontario

Katelyn's Words: Where to begin with the professionalism, creativity and quality of service Elaine showcases with Flashback Photography As a repeating client I'm always blown away with the photographs and experience with Elaine and her team. A ***** 5 star and beyond experience, my family and I can share our memories captured by the team at Flashback for years to come

Thank you Thank you!

Wedding Portraits at The ManorNicole + Sebastian

Wedding at The Manor in Kettlby, Ontario

Nicole's Words: I met Elaine at a wedding event and I instantly fell in love with her work! I was so happy to have found my perfect wedding photographer. Working with Elaine, from the very beginning was incredible. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable (even though we're both so awkward in front of a camera haha). She is such a sweet and kind person and genuinely cares about you. On top of that, her work is amazing. You can tell that she is very passionate about her work and that to me was amazing. I find myself looking at my wedding album all the time. Thank you so much Elaine for giving us beautiful photos of those memories that we will have and cherish forever.

Ceinwen + Stephen

Wedding at St. Joseph's at Fleming in Peterborough, Ontario

Ceinwen's words: The album of wedding photographs that Elaine created for us has become one of our most treasured possessions. The pictures tell the story of our day – and tell it in a way that reminds us of so many special moments that otherwise would have gone unrecorded and unremembered.

Elaine’s remarkable skills include identifying then capturing picture-worthy moments; a unique understanding of natural lighting and how best to use it; and an artistic, creative eye in the editing process. We knew that our finished album would be wonderful, but the result surpassed our (considerable!) expectations. She truly captured the magic we felt.

Jessica +Bobby

Engagement Session at Scout's Valley in Orillia, ON

Jessica's words: I met Elaine at the Toronto Bridal Show. Right off the bat, she was very professional, down to earth and transparent about her services. Her work is the first thing that caught my eye. Stunning, timeless and I can feel the emotion just looking at her photos on display. My fiance and I hired her as our wedding photographer and we recently did our engagement photoshoot with her at a nearby trail. She did a FANTASTIC job. We looked through them and there was not one photo we didn't like. Her talent is just incredible and we are SO happy we have Flashback photography to do our wedding in June 2021. Give her a call. You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you Elaine for capturing our moments for our engagement session. It makes me so much more excited to see what the wedding photos will bring :)

Kayla + Logan

Wedding at The Old Mill Inn & Spa, Toronto

Kayla's Words: I met Elaine at a wedding show about 1.5 years before my wedding day, and right from the first moment I met her I knew we needed to have her as our photographer. Elaine is professional, artistic, energetic, and will guide you through the whole process if you are like me and have no idea how to pose for a photo. She captured so many wonderful moments that I didn't even know she was there for. I will forever cherish the wonderful special moments she caught that we did not pose for, I cannot express how much more I love these pictures and the way she captured our emotions in them! I have to say, one of favourite things about working with Elaine is hearing her artist take on things. She made an incredible wedding book of our engagement and wedding photo's for her personal collection that she uses as an example book and I just had to have it. I didn't even know where to start and I felt like she captured everything and more that I wanted in an album. I highly, highly recommend working with Elaine, our wedding would not have been the same with out her. Elaine you are truly amazing, and my husband and I only wish you the best in the future!

Tina + John Paul

Wedding at Family Cottage near Orillia, Ontario

Tina's words: Elaine was AMAZING! Worth every penny. She was so professional and you can tell she is passionate about her work. She was so friendly and creative. I love our photos so much! Thank you Elaine!

Kristine + Ryan

Wedding at Pillar and Post

I had come across Elaine at the Bridal Show in Toronto and once I saw her work, I knew we needed her for our wedding! Her pictures were gorgeous!

She shot some engagement photos for us but we had no idea where to do them so she suggested we do them at the Gravenhurst Muskoka Wharf and WOW. She took so many beautiful photos in many different places and made it seem like it was in a different place altogether! Her vision for our shoot was so amazing, she was down on the dock, in the water, any angle you want, she’ll deliver! She also made us feel so comfortable during the shoot.

She just photographed our New Years Eve wedding yesterday and gave us some previews today and I am BLOWN AWAY! She and Logan were a great team and really worked with us to get such wonderful photos. I highly, highly recommend Flashback Photography!

Thank you so much for capturing this beautiful journey of ours!

Laura + Brad

Engagement Session at Belcroft Estate in Innisfil, Ontario

Laura's words: Elaine is absolutely amazing to work with. She made us feel comfortable the entire time, and we genuinely enjoyed ourselves! Her work speaks for itself. She is extremely talented, and we couldn't be happier with our engagement photos. We are already planning another family session with her!

Jenna +Réil

Their words: Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. We are very happy with how all the photos turned out and can't wait to see our album.

Jade + Jeremie

Family Portraits in Barrie, Ontario

Jade's Words: You could not ask for a more attentive and enthusiastic photographer than Elaine! From the very beginning our family was thoroughly impressed with her professionalism and genuine love and knowledge of photography. Elaine has the ability to capture life’s little moments in such a way that her photos portrayed a story of our family to an audience. Throughout the duration of our family portraits we felt extremely at ease, and Elaine swiftly dealt with any unexpected developments. During our session we paid a visit to a local beach which tempted our son to plunge head first into the water. Despite our family’s crazy antics Elaine was extremely lighthearted and took advantage of every opportunity to preserve these moments. The fact that she was so adaptable and personable truly made for a fun and enjoyable session!

The quality of Elaine’s work is outstanding and she is 100% committed to ensuring that you and your family are taken care. We were provided with a great selection of photos to choose from. To date we have received many comments from friends and family praising the results. The only difficulty we had throughout the entire process was in trying to decide which photos were our favourites!
Elaine exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend her photography services to anyone looking, we could not have imagined doing our family portraits with anyone else.
