STEFANIE NEVES

(LEFT)

Stef shoots honest and simple portraits and enjoys small subtleties and intimacy amongst her subjects. She often shoots when it is least expected allowing her to capture gracefully tender moments. She finds nothing more heartwarming than being able to document memories that will be shared, and passed down, for generations to come.

Stef is obsessed with every dog ever and is longing for the day she can adopt her own fur baby. She’s a self-professed workaholic, obsessed and utterly in love with this life and work that she gets to call a job. She is always on the hunt for new projects, new collaborations, and new people to work with!

ETHAN HORST MITCHELL

(CENTRE)

Ethan’s work is inspired by the environment, as he focuses on his subject’s relationship with their surroundings. He is strategic thinker that enjoys being able to document fleeting moments that evoke strong emotions of love and affection. To him, there is nothing more fulfilling than being able to capture genuine, and natural interactions.

Ethan is a nature boy at heart and loves mountain biking in his spare time. He enjoys nights out with friends, video games, weekends away at his cottage, and taking on personal photography projects.

HANNAH KIVIRANTA

(RIGHT)

Hannah searches for beauty in quiet and candid moments. She is inspired by the beautiful nature of people, in everyday life, in everyday situations. After falling in love herself, Hannah became heavily influenced by love’s many forms, and wanted nothing more than to document real people and their real love stories.

Hannah spends almost every hour of every day with her dog, Blue, mainly because he won’t leave her side for more than 2 minutes. She enjoys gardening, tending to her (embarrassingly) large family of indoor plants, planning her next vacation, and spending quiet weekends at the cottage.

How We Work

It's important to us to build a relationship and make a connection with each one of our clients. Learning how we work as a team, and how we'll be working not for you, but with you, is the first step in creating that connection.

our approach

Our lightheartedness allows us to make connections with the couples and families that we work with which translate through to the photos we take, on a personal and relatable level. We are extremely eager, dedicated, and more than anything appreciative of the opportunities to be able to make others happy, simply by capturing their love.

We'd be lying if we said we're serious all the time; we're sarcastic, obsessed with seeing Pinterest ideas in real life, and we really, really like to laugh. We aim not only to create and capture photos of one of the most important days of your lives, but also give you an experience that you can cherish forever.

We'd categorize our work somewhere in between documentary and formal. We like to be as unobtrusive as possible, capturing organic and real moments as they happen before us. We also enjoy creating beautiful portraits with just the right light, just the right posture and just the right posing. We work with your comfort level and give as much direction as you need whether it be none at all or "turn this way and look here" amount.

While our photo style tends to be on the light and airy side, we shoot to our environment; if it's a bright day your photo will reflect that, if there's a dramatic storm brewing behind you, you can bet we'll keep those details in too.


our promise

As if planning a wedding isn't one of the most stressful things to do- either a year in advance or only over the span of a couple of months- our promise to you is to help you streamline your day, make sure things are running (roughly) on time, and to always track down your parents, bridal party, and groomsmen whenever you need them for photos. We promise to learn people's names, and talk to your uncle who also loves photography.

Above all, we promise to work with and not just for you. We promise to become your friends who you can email or text, day or night, bounce ideas off of, and freak out to. We promise to only provide you with the best; photos, prints, and experience.


who we're looking for

Creating a connection with our couples and clients is extremely important to us! We look for couples who we can joke with, who get giddy thinking about each other, and have a clear vision of their wedding day. Couples who can turn a quick meeting into a 2 hour lunch just casually talking about good and bad movies, and the best late night eats in the city. Most importantly we look for couples who will let us share our hundreds of photos and stories of our pets and in return share theirs with us too! Couples who are over the moon with each other, people who feel like they talk about their partner too much (you're not, don't worry, we want to hear everything!), couples who don't mind going outside in a little rain, who are adventurous, who'll get a little dirty, and who aren't afraid to share embarrassing stories with us because believe us, we have plenty to share too!

We are especially looking for couples and families who trust us and who will happily allow us to do our own thing. Clients who don't micromanage and need to know what we're doing every minute; we promise you, even if our cameras are down we're still working! We look for clients who have gone through our work and understand the type of photos we deliver and who love what we do and what we create.


your investment

We only take on a select few weddings each year to ensure that we put our absolute best- before, during, and after- each and every wedding.

For each of our packages we provide two photographers to ensure every angle of your big day is covered, an engagement session, as well as prints so you can have tangible memories to relive one of the best days of your lives for years to come.

Our packages are customized to your needs so feel free to connect with us to receive your personalized quote.

About Rosewood

_DSC1033.jpg

It all started when...

The three of us first met in 2011 at Sheridan College, earning our BAA's in Photography. We spent 4 years together- studying, creating, and learning (and occasionally making a group decision not to go to class, oops). At any given moment between 6AM and 11PM on a school night you could find us in the print labs or studio together. It wasn't until we graduated in 2015 that we each individually wanted to start shooting weddings so we all decided, let's just do it together. 3 years later we're still here, still friends, and still shooting together. On most week nights you can find us talking about everything but business in our WhatsApp group chat, or hanging out, with a glass of wine, Netflix in the background, and a bowl of sour keys so large that you wouldn't think it's actually for human consumption. We are easy going, obsessed with laughing, and feed off of each other's energy whether it be on a sugar high, so tired that everything's hilarious, or when we have to buckle down and be serious.

Our greatest passion is being storytellers; we take pride in capturing tender moments with commitment, patience, and attention to detail. With each wedding that we photograph, our goal is to bring stories to life by creating genuine and honest images. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by so much love, inspiration, and beauty from every single wedding and event we photograph that it's difficult to call this a job when it rarely ever feels like work.
