A bit about me when I’m not behind the camera: My name is antonia botas, and I’m an intimate wedding photographer who spends most of her money on traveling and tattoos. I grew up in northwestern Ontario and have lived in various locations throughout the province before settling in Barrie (about an hour north of Toronto), where I currently reside, doing life with my steadfast partner and our three magical little humans. My life and work are heavily influenced by my insatiable need for wanderlust, adventure and curious exploration.

My love affair with photography and capturing life’s seemingly ordinary yet deeply profound moments began in high school when I first picked up a camera and enrolled in an elective photography class, I spent a LOT of my free time in the dark room developing film. Since this time, I am proud to share that I have received numerous awards for my photography.

Photographing intimate weddings and couples is my JAM. My style is driven and inspired by the most intimate, monumental and life-changing moments of our lives, which is why I love capturing them so much. My passion and creativity are fuelled by the deep bonds of human connection, the vulnerable demonstration of raw emotion and the memories created in moments of intimacy and authenticity.

I love how unique we all are, and I love capturing that in the form of human love and devotion. Everyone’s love story deserve to be told. I take the awkwardness out of being in front of a camera, and make it my mission for your personalities and connection to shine through everything.

If you wanna grab a coffee and chat more about tattoos and the best places to eat in Sintra Portugal…just kidding lol Although I’d be down to talk about those too. In all seriousness, if you wanna chat about how I can make your day as authentically YOU as possible through the gift of photography, LET’S CONNECT!
