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.Read Other Testimonials

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!Read Other Testimonials
Kristine & Alan Blue Mountain Wedding
As a wedding planner planning my own big day, booking a top notch photographer for my wedding was a priority for me. Working with Rowell Photography throughout my wedding planning was one of the best decisions I made. From the creative engagement session thought up by Erika and Ryan themselves, to the wedding day and beyond, we never felt like "just another client" to this dynamic team. We felt like we were working with friends! Although there are many good photographers out there, after our first meeting with Erika and Ryan we were sold. The quality of their work speaks for itself, but their personable and professional attitudes is what made the whole process fun and enjoyable.
When our friends and family saw our engagement photos that were shot in front of live fireworks, they were absolutely blown away. The response was overwhelming. Rowell came up with the concept, while we just had to follow their lead, and the result was astounding.
We've had the same reaction to our wedding photos as well, as Erika and Ryan's artistry and experience captured our day in the best way possible. I hope to work with Rowell again in the future and would happily recommend them to my clients, friends and family.Read Other Testimonials
