Dave & I wanted you to know that when we remember what a great time we had in Mexico, you two stand out as an important part of that. We were so impressed with your professional and yet fun work ethic. The photographs you took were so perfect & lovely that it still takes our breath away when we look at them; and we look at them often.

The perfect photographers that will go to any lengths to capture that special moment. Make them travel by plane, train, or automobile and they will only improve on their talent and expectations of what real photography is about. A picture is worth a thousand words, and these two photographers are worth many more!

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.
Rowell Photography was the easiest choice we made while planning our wedding. Not only are they extremely professional, but their vision and drive to provide breathtaking photos are second to none. They also keep things light and relaxed while shooting. Erika's charming whit, and Ryan's enthusiasm helped us enjoy the moments while they focused on finding the perfect shot. In the end, they left us with outstanding photos that we will cherish forever!

Erika and Ryan were absolutely fabulous on our wedding day, as well as during our engagement shoot. They made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera - something we aren't so used to! They were friendly, personable and professional. They take their work seriously, which is great. The pictures turned out amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better set of photographers. Everything from the candid shots, to the posed family shots to the lighting were incredible. I would strongly recommend them to everyone I know and actually, already have!
