So, it's been a minute. Or two and a half years to be not quite exact.


My last post - on March 12, 2020 - was a big announcement about my friend and I combining our photography businesses.


On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared the COVID-19 pandemic. We, of course, didn't know much about COVID at the time. Oh 2020 Sandy, soon you will know all about it.


On March 14th I shot a wedding in Toronto.


On March 17th Ontario Premier Doug Ford declared a state of emergency, calling for the closure of indoor recreation facilities, restaurants, libraries, theatres and concert halls.


A LOT has happened since then, and maybe we'll talk about it at some point, but I had been updating the shop on my website and realized my last blog post would be pretty misleading if you didn't know me personally.


In October of 2020, my partner, our pets, and I packed up our home and our lives and moved halfway across the country to PEI. Needless to say, I won't be booking any more sessions in Ontario (unless you're special to me and happen to catch me there haha).


I'm not even really sure if I want to continue with photo at all, to be honest. At the moment, I am focusing on stamps, illustration and printmaking. I do still take photos, but they are mostly of the awe-inspiring scenery I find myself in.


Anyway, here are some photos of our new home.


I hope you are well <3

wedding ceremony at the ancaster mill in ancaster ontario

Hello! We are Sandy + Jennifer, of Sandy Anger Studios and Jennifer Blaak Photography! We are excited to reveal what we’ve been secretly scheming behind the scenes. As of right now (yes, the moment you read these words), we are joining forces to create an exciting and WHOLE NEW brand!


Ahem *clears throat*


Announcing S + J wedding photography! We offer the best in proposal, engagement, elopement, and wedding photography! For well over year, we have shot together on almost every wedding and thought it was just about time we made it official and took our relationship to the next level! (You like that wedding themed joke?! There’s a lot more cheese where that came from!)

If you’re already here, chances are you know who we are from following either or both of us already. But just in case you don’t, here is a little bit about us:

We are a wedding photography duo based out of Southern Ontario with nearly 18 years combined experience in the industry! We are not your average photographers and pride ourselves on documenting the raw and emotional moments on your wedding day. Sometimes that means guests are making funny faces or even striking an amazing dance pose; we consider this a perk of the job and you can find some fun examples on our main website gallery! We love to play with light, shadows, and reflections, and creating images that highlight connection.

Why book S+J wedding photography?

We’ll capture it all. We have had the luxury of shooting weddings together for the last year and a half. From the start of the day, you will have a dedicated lead photographer available for each location during the treasured “getting ready” time. Capturing your first looks, or directly onto the ceremony, you and your guests will witness our amazing unspoken language! That’s right - during the ceremony we direct and communicate with each other through slight facial expressions and nods - like a pair of super stealthy photo ninjas!

Get to the ‘Party’ faster! We move in sync throughout the entire wedding ceremony to capture all angles and provide multiple points of views during those important moments. Our 2 lead photographer experience will maximize your time, capture the precious family, bridal party and candid guest shots quickly. You’ll be toasting and celebrating before you know it.

Trusted confidence; In all our time working together we have developed a cohesive photography style that delivers a wedding gallery that seamlessly tells the story of your day.

A bit about Sandy:

I love good food and good conversation. My Meyers-Briggs type is INFP (introverted, intuitive, feeling, prospecting). Debating and philosophical heart to hearts are my jam. I love listening to podcasts (and audio books, and Ted Talks!) about politics, true crime and self help. I love animals. Especially dogs. I'm that person who goes to a party and makes friends with the animals haha. I have two dogs and a cat. Pets are always welcome at weddings! I really value friendship and giving back to community. I am an advocate for self care, caring for others, and personal growth. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and welcome all forms of love.

Some more about Jen:

I am a wife of the most supportive husband and mom of two amazing kids. I love live music, board games, and nights in with friends. My Myers-Briggs type is ISFP (introverted, sensing, feeling, perceiving). I love trying new things, meeting new people, and exploring new places. Starbucks is my absolute weakness right up there with the smell of a campfire, the sound of rain falling, and a cool summer evening at the beach.

We are so excited about this new official venture and look forward to capturing the precious moments for you and your friends and family.
