What can I say about Ryan and Erika, the 2 photographers behind Rowell Photography?! They were BEYOND our wildest expectations! The pictures were breathtaking and they were sooo much fun! They shot our wedding, and let me tell you, you would be LUCKY to have them shoot yours. So talented and so professional. I couldn't believe how lucky we were to have chosen them. HIGHLY recommended!!! I would have booked them for double what we paid, and they would be worth every penny!
We didn’t have it in our budget for a professional videographer, but one thing we did make sure of, is to have a fantastic photographer. Long before we had booked Erika and Ryan; an experienced and dynamic duo, I had been looking at photographs of weddings in Muskoka. I have to say that it is their photos of Windermere House that first got us interested in that particular venue. In actual fact, it probably wouldn’t matter where or what Erika and Ryan are photographing; all the photo’s they have on their website have a beautiful and emotive quality to them. A lightness that I wanted for our wedding. From the start, the emails we received were disarmingly friendly yet professional. They were definitely quick to respond to emails, and paid attention to even the smallest details. On the day of the wedding, there was quite a big storm brewing. Our ceremony took place under the cover or some angry-looking clouds (luckily with some peeks of sunshine). Immediately after the ceremony and a few brief photo’s, the wind whipped up and rain came down so quickly and heavily. Always on the ball, Erika and Ryan were able to find a few places for us to take our group photo’s (so we actually had a good variety of backgrounds), and when the rain eased up, we went down to the docks to take more shots. While they suggested and photographed a few ‘staged’ poses for us, they also took photo’s of those joyful in-between moments, when my husband and I were just playing around, being ourselves. These, I’ll always treasure. I had been worried that with the lack of sunshine and blue skies, that our photo’s might end up a little ‘dull’. Those fears were quickly eased when we received our photo’s from Erika and Ryan, not long after the wedding. I was so happy to see that the lighting was perfect. The photo’s were beautiful, with a journalistic style that sets this pair apart from others.

We just want to thank you for all of your hard work in capturing the memories of our special day! Your photographs have brought so many smiles to us and our families. You were both wonderfully accommodating and rolled with the punches - through a damp ceremony to a hot, humid afternoon and even a long dinner! We had so many great memories that day and are so thankful that they are captured in your photographs! Thank you for making our special day that much more special!
