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 one hundred 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.

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!"

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!

Lorrie + 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!

Nicole + 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 Le Petite Bar 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 Eliane 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!

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.
