Listed as one of the "25 most inspirational photographers"
in Canada by weddingbells.ca
Rowell Photography is located in Barrie, Ontario halfway between Toronto and Muskoka. Erika & Ryan are a couple in love with photography and each other.

Erika & Ryan are in their 6th year of business. They are enjoying photographing couples in love in some of the world's most beautiful destinations.

Their work has been published internationally in various magazines such as Perfect Wedding, Wedding Bells, Elegant Wedding, WedLuxe, Today's Bride, B Magazine UK, Macleans Magazine Canada, PIE Magazine, as well as online publications such as www.stylemepretty.com, www.weddingbells.ca/blogs, www.arewemarriedyet.com, rockphotoblog.com, trashthedress.com, Distinct Occasions Blog and modernphotographers.com

Rowell Photography only takes a small number of wedding commissions each year.

"We want to get to know our clients, and capture the right moments. You can't do that if you are shooting nearly 100 weddings a year and don't know who you are photographing. Its important to us to create real relationships with our couples and images that our couples will fall in love with, and will cherish for their lifetime."
Erika & Ryan

Erika & Ryan met while working at a family portrait studio. Ryan has a background in graphic and web design and Erika has a background in freelance writing. After photographing over 5000 families and other traditional portraits, they realized that their creativity would never fully take off unless they broke out and started fresh. And so Rowell Photography was born. From the very beginning Erika & Ryan have been focused on wedding photography, and creative portraiture.
6 years later they operate one of the most popular Barrie & Muskoka wedding photography services. Their work has taken them to many cities all over the world. You can follow their travels and images at http://rowellphoto.com Read less

When planning my wedding like most brides I was going crazy on Pinterest that is were I discovered Rowell. I first spoke with Erika on the phone and right away I knew that Craig and I would love working with them and their artistic style of capturing couples beauty in a natural landscape. Once we booked with Erika and Ryan they were so helpful in planning our wedding. They provided lots of vendors they had worked with and it made planning our wedding simple. Throughout the year of planning our wedding they responded quickly to all my emails, questions and ideas. Working with the Rowell team made our wedding planning experience enjoyable. I highly recommend the engagement session with any photographer. Craig and I were nervous about doing a photo shoot together and the engagement session made us feel comfortable and ready for our wedding day. On the day of our wedding Erika and Ryan felt more like 2 friends taking our photos who made us feel excited, relaxed and confident they would capture our special day with everlasting photos. My favorite wedding day touch was the few polaroid photos Rowell gave us as a preview to how stunning our wedding photos had turned out. After our wedding Craig and I are were so enthusiastic to get our wedding photos and the photo booth pictures from Rowell. The photos that Erika and Ryan took were stunning, beautiful and enchanting. We have so many perfect photos we don’t know which ones to pick to hang on our walls. We are so grateful that Rowell captured the beauty of Muskoka that inspires us as a couple and our love for each other in the most natural gorgeous photos we have ever seen. Our wedding photos will last us a life time to remember how special our wedding day was and how mother nature gave us the prefect day to celebrate with our friends family and each other. We cannot wait to give our families and friends copies of photos of them at our wedding for them to enjoy how beautiful they looked.

Rowell photography went above and beyond our expectations during our small wedding in Bermuda.
At first we weren't going to have a photographer but after many people told me that it was something I'd regret later in life, I reluctantly agreed to have one and I'm so happy that I changed my mind.
They supported us during the entire experience and took some amazing photos that we will cherish forever.
Thanks Rowell photography!

We used Rowell Photography as our wedding photographers and we couldn't be happier.
Erika and Ryan are such a wonderful couple and very easy to be around and especially work with.
When we needed to find a photographer for our wedding, we considered many others but Rowell Photography's quality stands out by far from all others.
Not only did they take amazing pictures but they were also a huge help throughout the entire evening. Many of our guest had thought they were also our wedding planners by their professionalism and help during every special moment :)

We would highly recommend Erika & Ryan at Rowell Photography to capture your wedding day moments. They captured our important day perfectly.

Working with the Rowell Photography Team was more than we could have imagined. We knew that having great photos to remember for our lifetime - both Engagement and Wedding - was one of the most important components for our events. They were excellent with communicating what they needed from us, and extremely responsive to my (never-ending) questions. The quality of their photos is immaculate and the colors are so perfect and real. Their style is absolutely flawless. As someone who is not confident or comfortable around cameras, it was such a joy to have them document and I felt extreme trust/comfort in them.

I would not hesitate to recommend Rowell Photography to anyone who asked; they do not disappoint in quality, professionalism, and enthusiasm for their art. I truly believe that our photos could not be anymore perfect.

We hired Rowell Photography for our Muskoka wedding and we love the images they captured. Erika & Ryan are amazing photographers and work as a team capturing moments from multiple view points and holding lighting for each other's shots to ensure the shot is perfect.
I planned my wedding from Australia and Erika & Ryan were flexible in coordinating Skype calls, responding to my emails and setting up PayPal for me. They also went above and beyond, providing instant cameras to make our guestbook unique, recommending a cake vendor and personally delivering our wedding album to my parents in Toronto.
Although they are expensive, their high quality work and albums are worth it. I definitely recommend them.

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, and 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/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 - i imagine that they were trying to gauge what sort of couple we are, what sort of photo's we wanted. They were definately 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.
