At Ackland Photography we hold an incredible passion for life, love, and documenting the emotional moments that add meaning to your lives. Our approach to photography is natural and relationship-oriented to illustrate this chapter of your own personal love story.
Through years of experience we have tailored our Collections to reflect what brides + grooms really want, including two photographers, a USB with unlimited hand-retouched images presented in a keepsake package, engagement sessions, and heirloom-quality products. A wife and husband-owned business, we’re a fun-loving + professional team with a soft-spot for Starbucks, good wine, and dinner parties with friends. We love that photography is a way to stretch our creative legs, while meeting fantastic new people and providing a long-lasting visual keepsake for your grandchildren to delight in 50 years from now.
“Unsurprisingly, I love weddings. There’s just something about gorgeous wedding dresses, dreamy floral arrangements, and all those thoughtful, personal touches that make me swoon, so it just seemed natural when I started a photography business that I would gravitate towards weddings. My personal photography style leans toward being unobstrusive and candid, so that your wedding day coverage tells a story. The real-life, everyday Monika is a child-totting, Starbucks-drinking, book-reading, exercise-doing, sarcastic-joking, kind of girl. And I would love to meet you.” Monika was born and raised in Haliburton, Ontario and travels back north (which she still calls home!) as often as possible!
“On top of being Monika’s second photographer, I also happen to be the lucky guy that married her 5 years ago! In 2012 we decided to try photographing weddings together, and we’ve never looked back! My photography style puts me in the action and compliments Monika’s more unobtrusive nature, ensuring that you’ll get a well-rounded collection of images. When I’m not busy being second-shooter, marketer, and equipment-guy-extraordinaire, I love spending time with our two kids, taking my wife to the movies, being outdoors, and relaxing with a glass of good red.” Trevor grew up in Whitby, Ontario and often encounters brides + grooms that lived in the same area or went to the same school!
