My approach and style
I feel all the energy and emotions of your day and document it.
Creating lasting memories from the moments you create.
Best way to sum me up: I feel a bit like a chameleon. I blend in the moment, feeling the energy and charm that everyone else is experiencing. A force of energy is how I have been described. I can be energetic or I can have energy in a calm way and bring an amazing flow to the atmosphere. I can be calm, emotional and present. Other times, I will be right in the middle of the dance floor breaking a sweat trying to catch my breath while dodging elbows and feeling out the music. I am very observant and will walk 1000’s of steps because I don’t want to miss the festivities in all the corners.
Sometimes I am capturing a moment and you don't even know it. Other times I can be right there in your face making you laugh by the ridiculousness of it all.
A few moments will be quiet, intimate and emotional. Other moments are loud, hectic and chaotic in a great way! Sometimes I will surprise folks by appearing out of nowhere (which creates amazement and true laughter!) Other times I will be directing and guiding my couples or their guests.
Here’s what I do that makes your day flowing and fun.
Shawnigan Lake Wedding
"Weddings are amazing but stressful events to plan for. From the day we brought Maylies on board, she did nothing but put our mind at ease. She helped with everything from helping to plan out the days events around best daylighting and timeslots required for photography, all the way to helping my husband and the groomsmen with their outfits when they couldn't figure out the tie clips. She was always prompt to respond to any questions we had, and had just as many questions back to make sure we got all of the photos we could every dream of from our special day. She was so creative with her photography and we have such a wide variety of beautifully composed photos to choose from as a result. My absolute favorite photos are the candid shots - Sneaky Maylies was always in the place at the right time capturing the most beautiful moments throughout our entire day. I know it's so cliché to say that 'the day goes by so fast, you never remember it all', but with Maylies documenting the day, you'll truly have all those moments you may have thought that you missed, photographed, to bring it all back, and to last forever.
