Boho Wedding at 99 Sudbury

Boho Wedding at 99 Sudbury

Adam & Liz had an incredible summer wedding at 99 Sudbury that was so full of genuine love, fun and incredible eye-candy planned and coordinated by the Love by Lynzie team. I can’t begin to describe how beautiful and rad the venue looked as well as the wedding party but I’m about to show off some of this love right here with you guys today.  A wedding of beautiful moments and so many unique touches. The entire day was filled with genuine love from their family and friends. What a wedding!

How to download your photos from Pixieset

How to download your photos from Pixieset

Pixieset is my go-to gallery for my clients. Not only is it relatively easy for me to upload the images but out of the online galleries I have tried so far, I find it to be the most aesthetically pleasing. Now I will admit that it originally took me a little while to figure out where the download button was, how I download only my favourites and how to even pick my favourites, but once I did it all came together nicely. Since I have had a couple of my clients ask about how to download the files from the Pixieset gallery I figured that I should make a little post to help you guys out. I hope it’s useful!.

So the first step is to OPEN your gallery. HOORAY PHOTOS!!

Ok. So you are in the gallery, you see your photos and now you want to share them, print them, love them.. just get them on your computer! What you need to do is use the little arrow pointing down icon as seen in the below screenshot to download the files. If you want to PRINT these, please select high-res or original for the best quality. If you are sharing on Instagram or emailing your cousin in China then the web version will be perfect. If you want to download just one image or a couple of your faves then you can do that too and if you scroll down just a tiny bit I will explain how to make a favourites list.

When you open your gallery on a computer you will see some kind of header with your images below depending on the design of your gallery. Example below.

how to use pixieset

Right under this are some icons. I drew a green circle around them so you can see. The heart is for favourites, the arrow point down means DOWNLOAD and Share is, well for sharing. =)

how to get your photos off of pixieset

Now if you want to make a favourites list for fun or if you’re interested in downloading just a couple of the photos from your gallery then here is what you will need to do.

If you hover over an image , you can click on the heart to save it to your favourites list. I hope you like the fancy arrow. At this point you will be asked to enter your email which will be used to save your favourites! Now you can create a list of faves and if you go back and click the download arrow as I showed you above you will have the option to download the whole gallery or the favourites you have selected.

Ps I have no idea how to do this on mobile/cell phones and I am not entirely sure if you even can! Hope this helps you guys!

Engagement Shoot at Fanshawe Conservation Area

Engagement Shoot at Fanshawe Conservation Area

Ah, Mikaela and Luke.  An adorable and head-over-heels in love with each other couple who I got to photograph when the weather was many degrees higher. Mikaela is also a photographer out in London so when they decided to have me shoot their wedding I was, of course, super flattered. When I actually met up with them at Fanshawe Coonservation Area I quickly realizde what a perfect match  it was. These two lovebirds are full of life and love as well as creativity and I was super stoked at how into the photos they were. Mikaela actually has a pretty sweet collection of couples shots she has taken herself of the duo too! This session was honestly so fun to do and I cannot wait to see these guys again soon !!! So today I wanted to share a bit of their engagement photo shoot wiith you all here on the blog! Enjoy.

Top 30 Under 30 Canadian Wedding Photographer

Top 30 Under 30 Canadian Wedding Photographer

Wowza! Yes, that’s my word. Pretty rad, right? Well you know what is even more rad than that? Big news for me in 2016 that I completely FAILED to blog about. Yes, one of the highlights from my year… the announcement that made me literally dance and leap across my house and make my husband think I am a maniac…ready for it? Ok, well the title says it all now doesn’t it? Canada Photo Convention named me as one of the top 30 under 30 photographers! Yes, for REAL! Being up there with so many amazing people that actually inspire me and who have created images that I swoon over constantly was such an incredible honour and surprise. Stoked doesn’t begin to even explain my feelings. Well as we start 2017 I figure I had better make this announcement on the blog. I did announce it on social media last April but still! I mean , I could always be 91 and decide that I want to share the news via some crazy futuristic and new-world blogging sphere but today at about 3 am seems to be the magic time! You can check out the feature here and see the other wedding photographers who have been so lucky to share the title as well! Eek!


Above is a cell phone picture. It’s the one I gave them that they used on my page so I decided to put it here. Plus I have my cool overalls on. Unfortunately those bad boys are history. *sigh* Grey wall, So professional. 😉

I loved all of the sweet moments and unique details of the wedding day. I am stoked to share their wedding highlights with you guys here on the blog today!


I am 110% in love with these Kate Spade KEDS that Sarah our bride wore!


And the wedding dress!!!

  • Ah this wedding reception was so full of love, laughter and beautiful details. I love looking back at their photos because I really remember how amazing it was being there! One thing that I thought was incredibly heart-warming was when Chris ( the groom ) brought out a candle-lit cupcake for his Dad’s birthday. When it was his special day, he still took the time to celebrate the important man in his life too. And sorry, but I may have teared up a little. 🙂
  • This is one of my favourite cut the wedding cake shots. This is basically Sarah making sure she doesn’t get a face full of cake. Aaaand, she didn’t!toronto award winning wedding photographer
  • Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today to check out Sarah+Chris’ beautiful bicycle themed Sunnybrook Estates wedding! Cheers!
