Founder, Becca Lemire Photography

Wedding Photographer for couples with Rebellious Hearts

Personal Branding + Boudoir for bada$$ humans

I grew up in Toronto's Dufferin Grove area, born to a Jewish Canadian mother and Italian American father. My passion for photography started young, developing my precious pictures in my high school dark room and the 24hr lab at Shoppers Drug Mart.

I spent my summers on canoe trips in Canada's beautiful wilderness, tucking away rolls of film in my dry sack, and playing dress up with my friends for spontaneous back-alley photoshoots. I was always trying to convince my friends (and boyfriends) to put on ridiculous outfits I scored from Value Village so I could take their picture! Mostly, they agreed :p 

One time I flew to the Caribbean and lived on an organic farm + eco-community. I got the nickname Mama Fruits because I took care of (and snacked on) the tropical fruit orchards, and...this is why I now have 2 pineapple tattoos :D 

I've been working as a Photographer for the last 8 years. My eye for the action was trained while photographing events + parties for magazines for many years. I have photographed 25+ weddings, and my first wedding was a Studio 54 disco-theme on NYE! Burn, baby, burn. 

I can pick up the energy in a room, always ready with my camera pointed towards candid moments. These days I live in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood, and travel to tropical places for yoga, sun and surf a few times a year. My zodiac sign is Cancer if it matters!

Let's have a whole lotta fun while I capture those beautiful candid moments! I'm equally comfortable shooting couples + family portraits in delicious natural light as I am shooting with a speedlite flash for fun party moments. I am always aware of what's happening at your wedding, sensing the action as it happens, ready to shoot.
