Molly Ilse Photography

meet molly ilse - the girl behind the camera


I believe friendship and connection are the key to awesome wedding photos, so here's a bit about me;

My fashion sense is a strong 4 out of 10 on a good day, I basically live in old knitted sweaters with terrible patterns, and my hair is a disaster at any given moment. I thought it was a great idea to buy a fixer-upper house in the middle of nowhere, and although most days I'm covered in paint and miscellaneous glues, I wouldn't change it for anything. I have a hobby farm, complete with; Ellie my husky/boxer mix, Pongo the mini pig, the cat gang; Carl, Olive, and Figgy Pudding, and the ducks; Mango, Moe, and Marley (scroll down to see how cute they are!). When I'm not photographing badass couples around Canada, I'm home, with my crazy animals and half-renovated house. 

I'm basically just a cliche: a small town girl following her big dreams. I was born & raised in Second North River (points to anyone who knows where that is!), and started my photography business from my parents backyard. From there, I've grown an incredible business full of amazing clients and unique work.

I'm madly in love with a wonderful man (and I get to marry him next year!!!), I love barefoot walks, I have a forever growing imagination, and I live off of Crispers. I create unique photos by combining my love of adventure, my love of love, and my love of natural light and earthy tones. 

Fun fact - my middle name is German, and pronounced as "ill-sa" (replace the "e" with an "a"!).

Let's be crazy together - get in contact today to plan some adventures.
