Hi, I’m Frances Beatty. I live in an old house in a cozy village nestled in the wooded hills south of Georgian Bay, Ontario, north of Toronto. A love for old cameras, genuine film, and natural light inspired me to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography–a sensitive eye for personal storytelling and a wide open heart have led me to photograph nearly three hundred weddings and intimate elopements all around the world.

I believe in capturing moments as they organically unfold to reveal the truth and beauty of my clients. I unveil intimate connection, delicate feeling, and document honestly to create authentic, timeless images. My easy-going nature makes it easy for couples to relax and be their truest selves–throughout the day, I want to feel as much a trusted lifelong friend as your hired photographer.

It’s all about human connection. The realness. The quirks and idiosyncrasies and small details that make your relationship beautiful and unique. I always strive to create an effortless, joyful daylong experience, never an uncomfortable on-trend photoshoot. Helping you create captured moments that will resonate for generations is a privilege I cherish and never tire of.

Let me tell your love story. Together, we will create images to make you hold your breath, laugh, smile, and bring tears back to your eyes as you relive the day’s intense and amazing emotions. I’m here to preserve the feeling, to focus on taking it all in and capturing it all, so you can focus on what truly matters… enjoying one of the best and most beautiful days you will ever get to live.

Frances is the BEST! She was so professional, responsive, positive, and thorough in asking questions and working with us on planning out our day. We were looking for someone who'd be up for a bit of an outdoor adventure/hike and Frances was definitely the person for that. The weather on the day of the wedding was extremely iffy but we were in excellent hands and our photos came out to be spectacular!!! We've looked through these photos a bazillion times already because they make us so happy. Thank you so much Frances! We had so much fun!!!


Thank you so much for attending our wedding as photographer, guest, and awesome new friend. Working with you was a breeze, and we can't—and don't want to—imagine what the day might have been like without you.

We remain 100% confident in both your ability and our decision to work with you. The photographs are phenomenal! Your presence, engagement, balance of professionalism and goofiness, and sheer enthusiasm were greatly appreciated. You made tremendous contributions to our special day, and we can't thank you enough.


Frances was our photographer at our small, backyard wedding in summer 2022. She exceeded expectations in every regard! My partner and I are quite camera shy, but she did a great job of making us feel comfortable. She provided enough direction to ensure beautiful images that still appeared natural and unstaged, which was really important to us. Communication with her before and after the wedding was seamless. We are so happy with our beautiful photos and would highly recommend Frances.


FRANCES!!!!!! Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop!!!!

If you get Frances as your photographer you are the luckiest people in the world. Frances went above and beyond for our day!!! She helped in so many ways possible, I can’t imagine the day with her sweet and energetic personality! Frances is one of the best souls you will ever meet and I cannot recommend her enough for your photos. We just got sneak peeks back and her photography is pure art. 10/10 💕 we love you Frances, thank you for making our dreams come true!



I had the privilege of having Frances photograph my Toronto wedding. You should do yourself a solid and hire Frances A$AP Rocky. When you first chat with her you feel like you're talking to a friend you've known forever. She's soft spoken, creative and extremely generous with her time. The fact that she's professional, punctual and super organized is just a cherry on top of the whole dang delicious cake!

Her way - she'll take this hazy vision in your brain and turn in to an outstanding reality. Frances went out of her way to arrive early and scope out first-look locations for us. She lugged around a bunch of cameras because of course I gave her a wish list of the different "shots and styles" I wanted. She gave us space when we needed a quiet moment and rallied the troops when we needed to get our tipsy guests outside for a faux exit.

Her art - a quick peek at her website or IG will tell you everything you need to know but if it helps at all, Frances is a magician. She came very highly recommended from another photographer so I knew we were in good hands but the end product was ethereal, gritty and dreamy. She managed to capture the mood of the day in two dimensions - I don't know how she did it but she did!

Overall - I can't wait for more life events so I can justify hiring her again (mainly) so I can hangout with her and as a bonus get outstanding photos to hold on to.


We chose Frances to photograph our elopement and she was a JOY to work with. My wife and I felt taken care of during the whole process of our wedding because she shared her extensive knowledge and years of experience. Frances pours her heart into her work, she has an eye for the special moments and captures those moments with beautiful artistry. We were looking for a queer-friendly photographer and absolutely found that with Frances. She made us feel so comfortable. She somehow blends into the group seamlessly while making us forget about the camera. Every time we look at our wedding photos we get to re-live our special day. We are over the moon with the final gallery. I hope to be photographed by her again soon.


Having Frances photograph our engagement and wedding was absolute magic! Her grounding and heart forward presence made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of her lens. She has a true talent in documenting resonant, meaningful moments and she went above and beyond to deliver us EXCEPTIONAL photos in our final galleries! We highly recommend working with Frances for a heart focused and joyful experience, and for the incredible quality in her photography.
