MEET my Man

Hi! I'm Jenna

Lover of all things cozy and covered in chocolate.
I'm your lead photographer and personal comedian for the day. I can't promise my jokes are funny, but I try anyway. My favourite jokes are dad jokes... so there's that....

I've got a slight obsession with sock buns, scarves, and chocolate. I'm am an optimist, a problem solver, a dog mom and soon to be a human mom! I love Jesus with my whole life. My internal GPS is non-existent, I don't like the smell of coffee, and I frequently roll around on the floor with my dog.

Ishmael Here!

Frequently known as ishy, ishy squishy, fish, shmeal, shmelly, the list goes on....But most people call me Ish, so let's go with that!

On wedding days, I'm like the cool sidekick that does all the important stuff while the superhero (my wife) runs around doing whatever she does... alright, alright, I'm joking.... kind of. I'm a sports guy and could forever live on lactose free cheese, BBQ chips and coffee. Jesus is the center of my life. I am an organization guru and although I didn't think I'd ever say this before marrying Jenna, but I love our dog to pieces.


We are Jenna and Ishmael Dalm; Christian photographers, storytellers, best friends, and favourite adventure buddies. We met in our 2nd year of University, and bonded over late night accounting homework sessions (romantic right?!). Eventually, we fell in love, and got married the summer after graduation! 

That's a little about how our story began but click the arrow below for some more fun, random facts about us!


We both have a major travel but and love to find adventures wherever we go. Whether it's local to Ontario or in another country, we always try to scout out some hidden local gems while we're there. The next few places on our bucket list: Ireland, Greece, & Italy!


We are Christians who love and live for Jesus Christ. We are sinners that don't deserve the grace that God has given us but in him we have found our hope and joy.
God is good, ALL THE TIME!

OUR little man

Our little guy is due August 10, 2020! We're beyond excited to meet him and introduce you to him! He currently loves having a dance party on Jenna's bladder and practicing his soccer kicks on her ribcage. All jokes aside, this little guy is already so loved!! 

OUR "furbaby"

We have an Aussie puppy named Piper. She's got the most beautiful blue eyes. Ever since she was just a baby, we would take her with us on our bike rides, she loves it. She is our silly, sweet, loving Pipey and has stolen a piece of our hearts! 

our crazy selves

We definitely bring out the crazy in each other. From Ish's opera singing to Jenna's strange voices, we're pretty much a match made in heaven. Although we may look normal, rest assured, we aren't... and we like it that way.

Redeemer University

We met at Redeemer University in Ancaster, ON where Jenna got her BA in Business & Performance Theatre and Ishmael got his Honours BA in Business Management & Marketing.
