Hi, I'm Renee and I like fries.

Connecting with your photographer is so important, since you will spend most of your wedding day with them. Let's get to know each other a little better!

10 fun facts to know about me

Let's get right into this:

1. I am a certified teacher

I spend a lot of my time doing environmental education. Sometimes that means I am going on a snowshoe hike with students, going on a night hike with Girl Guides or taking new Canadians on a tour of a Conservation Area. I like that I get to do something different everyday.

2. I have an obsessive love for cookbooks

I don’t cook a ton right now, but I love to look at the photos and dream of hosting elaborate dinner parties…once my kids sleep this might become a reality.

3. Racer ready...3, 2, 1....

I used to competitively ski race in my younger years and when my knees weren’t so squeaky. I made some pretty awesome friends and we got to travel a lot around the world!

4. My sister is a genius

I have an older sister, who I think is a certified GENIUS. She would be more modest, but she’s pretty awesome and just received an award as one of the top 12 chemists to watch in the WORLD. I’m convinced she will win a Nobel Prize.

5. I love winter

In University, I was unsure what I wanted to do after school, so I took a variety of courses which included Greek Mythology and Snow and Ice Environments. Needless to say, I went the snow and ice route and will never forget the BEST Professor, Dr.Mattson, who still teaches and spends an a lot amount of time in the Arctic studying glacial environments. I even have a snowflake tattoo going down my side.

6. E-harmony is the bees-knees

Josh and I met on E-harmony (side note: is e-harmony still a thing?) We both knew from our first date onwards that this was something special! Almost 10 years later and 2 kids, I still think its something special!

7. Someone get me a letter to get into Hogwarts

I love the Harry Potter series and have gone to the elaborate book releases at 12 am- just to get the books! Did you know it's the 20th anniversary? How did that happen???

8. Did aliens build the pyramids?

If I wasn’t in my profession now, I think that I would have studied Egyptology in University and worked at a museum. If it wasn't our of our budget, I would have totally got married at the museum.

9. I love to volunteer

I did volunteer for a bit at the Royal Ontario Museum in their Hands-on Biodiversity department. I loved it.

10. Special places I hold in my heart

I did volunteer also for Camp Oochigeas- which is a magical place of friendship and fun where kids with cancer can just be kids! Its awesome and if you can donate time or money the power of camp is truly remarkable to see…visit

That was a little more like 11 things, with that quote thrown in there at the end. I look forward to hearing from you,
