Hey babes! We're the SVP Team! We thought this would be a nice informal introduction where you can get to know us a bit.
I'm Cate, the Owner of Stella's View Photography. I have been photographing people for as long as I can remember. I was always that kid that had a coolpix Sony camera in my pocket and just took a million photos of every single one of my friends. Now I have professional gear, and pretty much still do the same thing - haha! I just bought a farm with my mom in Cottam, Ontario and we are currently turning it into a Wedding Venue! I have 2 puppies, and two cats, but I plan on adding some horses, cows, and goats to the mix over the next few years. Being a photographer has always been a dream of mine and it is still surreal that I get to be part of so many people's lives.
What's up? I'm Emma! I've always been interested in cameras and film - from a young age, I was always jumping in front of the camera and getting in the way, and although I still love to do that, I'm much more comfortable behind the camera. I went to film school and realized I didn't like the structure of production sets, but found I enjoyed the other aspects of shooting film - the behind the scenes, weddings and elopements, dance and creative shoots, and all the real and raw moments you might not always get to see from just a photo. When I'm not filming or spending hours sorting through footage and editing, I enjoy sewing and drinking wine (not always at the same time), and watching reality TV.
Emma and I have been friends for over 10 years now and we both absolutely love capturing love. I will cry at your wedding, and Emma will laugh at me. One of our favourite photography/videography memories together was being the witnesses for an elopement we photographed in California! If you want to laugh all day at our dumb jokes, you should probably hire us.
This is all of us! Momma Lise and Kat are always around helping out. Sometimes they are behind the scenes going over galleries, and contracts. While other times they are out at events with us and second shooting. We're the SVP Team! Enjoy a bunch of random pictures posted below!
