Founder and Photographer
Hi, I’m Therese
I am a portrait and wedding photographer and have documented 150+ weddings for over 8+ years. I have had the incredible honour of documenting stories of couples in Canada, Thailand, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Europe and across the globe. It’s been a privilege to have been able to tell their unique story and create these life-long memories for my couples and clients.
My work is a delicate balance between effortless elegance and authenticity making sure every photo tells a story. I am meticulous and have an eye for detail while always keeping the bigger picture in mind. I believe the reason my work is unique is that my eye is constantly drawn to the beauty of nature, light nuances, human interactions, emotions, fleeting moments, and breathtaking places. It’s important to me that your photos stand the test of time and capture an organic story that is unique to you.
Composure and intuition in both my art and demeanour are my superpowers. I am calm and observant of what’s around me. However, I don’t let this stop me from being sincerely straightforward and honest. To be able to document the authentic story of your wedding day, I want you to feel comfortable and truly be yourselves. For this, building trust and open communication are key. During the initial meeting and process of wedding planning, getting a sense of who you are, what’s important to you, your values, and how you envision your celebration allows me to tailor a unique experience for you. It’s my goal to be an asset to you and a trusted member of your wedding team – that way, you can revel in the moments of love and let things flow naturally – that’s what creates the magic!
Documenting weddings is my favourite because at the root of the celebration is a unique love story shared by the couple. Together we will capture the raw moments of beauty in the environment, the emotion, and in the people you cherish most. With every fleeting moment of love captured within a frame, I am reminded of what is truly the substance of life. Let’s create some magic!
I have a deep love for travel, art, food, culture, and new experiences. As a photographer, I want to be able to share this through my lens and show others the beauty that I see. Deep in my soul, I am still on my journey of self-discovery; I only wish to inspire others who may also be searching as our paths intertwine.
One life on this earth is all we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.FEDERICK BUECHNER
Therese is AMAZING and talented! She is so easy to work with and is super talented. The whole process from start to finish was seamless, she provided direction and her expertise to make every photoshoot fun, creative and look absolutely amazing. I am not usually one who likes to take photos but she eased the stress and made me feel comfortable.
We were fortunate enough to have Therese travel with us to the South of France for our destination wedding and helped us capture beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Her work helped us retain all the precious moments on the most important day of our lives that pass by way too quickly! The photos came out gorgeous, romantic and whimsical – exactly what I imagined and more. It would be an honour to work with her again! Thank you, Therese!

Therese is an incredible photographer!! She is exceptionally talented and knows how to perfectly capture every moment of the day. From getting ready, to first look, to fine details, and moments of laughter & tears, she captured everything in the best possible way. On top of being an incredible photographer, Therese is an amazing person who we loved getting to know and made us feel very natural/comfortable while taking photos on our wedding day. We also ordered a fine art album as a keepsake to look back on for years to come and it exceeded all of our expectations. We are so excited to show our family and friends. We would highly recommend ARTIESE Studios without a doubt! Thank you, Therese!!!

Deciding to have a destination wedding in Germany created many challenges when it came to choosing vendors, especially when it came to a photographer. After trying for months to find a photographer we like as much as we did Therese (I had always been a fan of her work and was my top choice if we were getting married in Canada) we reached out to her to see if she would travel all the way to another continent to shoot our big day. I am SO glad we did and could not be happier that we were able to have someone shoot our day who spoke the same language, knew the type of photos we wanted (things are done very differently in Europe) and made the day so easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend her to any couple having a destination wedding. You won’t be disappointed!

We are so happy that we had you as our wonderful photographer on our special day. You captured all the beautiful moments so perfectly and we cannot thank you enough.
You were so delightful, professional and a pleasure to work with. We couldn’t have chosen a better photographer. We are now able to relive the joys of that day forever through your photos. We wish you the best and success in the future. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Therese for our wedding. She is an amazingly talented photographer, who had a great attitude and gave some helpful tips. Our photos turned out amazing, and every time we look through the photos, a new one becomes our favourite. There is a great balance of posed photos and candid ones that really capture the essence of the day. There were so many amazing moments she captured that my husband and I had no idea happened. We really hope that we can work with Therese again in all of our big family moments! She is worth every penny, and our only regret would have been to have worked with her for all of our engagement/bridal festivities! I can’t recommend her enough.

We can’t thank you enough for photographing our wedding day. You are so talented and did an absolutely amazing job. The pictures are so beautiful and more than I could have imagined. Thank you for helping make our wedding day such a big success, and for being there as a friend when I had a little meltdown, and for helping make decisions that I couldn’t. You are the best!

ARTIESE Studios did a phenomenal job capturing the most important day of our lives! From our first email communications to our pre-wedding meeting in person, to the actual wedding day, and receiving our photos, Therese was wonderful to work with. She is professional, talented, calm and cool. We knew we could trust her to get every important moment, and she did not disappoint. More so, each moment was captured beautifully, with a light and style that captured the love and magic of the day. She made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, and both photographers were very unobtrusive throughout the ceremony and reception. We love our photos and are so glad we chose ARTIESE as our wedding photographer. Highly recommend!
