Studio Grand Opening!

Wow. Just so much Wow.

I’m trying to be all clever and wordsmith-y but I’m STILL. so. blown. away. <3

On Saturday May 25th 2019 the official grand opening of Jessica Waugh Photography studio took place, and I could not be any prouder.  I was surrounded by so many family, friends and fellow small business owners who all offered words of wisdom and support. Totally made me stop and realize just how far I’ve come, how much I’ve accomplished and how many people are genuinely supporting my dream. THANK YOU!  

The lovely Erin, who own Olives En Folie Oakville, brought the most fantastic spread of various flavour infused olive oils and balsamics to dip some bread in AND the best fruit platter I’ve EVER had! Chelsey who owns CakeBar brought mini truffle cakes in chocolate and vanilla and they were such a hit that we literally weren’t able to grab a photo ‘cause they disappeared! Michelle the amazingly resourceful brain behind Batch Makr premiered her newly canned small batch artisanal kombucha, in pineapple and ginger flavour YUM. My beautiful sister so graciously helped by making the bestest finger sammies in a perfect 3-bite size xo

There are so so many people I’d like to thank, (the long version will happen in private <3 ) Many of those are pictured in these beautiful images taken by my friend Mike (

A special thank you to our ward 2 councillor Lisa Kerns (ward champion more like it) for coming and saying such a beautiful speech and for the fun ribbon cutting ceremony! It was such a surreal moment to see it all happen and to listen to the speeches from established community members. Totally made me feel like a legit small business owner ;)

I hope to see you come by and check out the space if you haven’t already. I’m located in the heart of the historic Village Square in the GORGEOUS Downtown Burlington ON.
