What can I say, Roberta & Jeff are one of the most relaxed couples we’ve ever met! Their day flowed smoothly, and there wasn’t even a hint of stress for either of them! Perhaps that’s because Elise of Toast Special Events was handling everything for them! Their ceremony was perfect, and we had a great time wandering the grounds of Orchardview for some amazing portraits, some of which may include horses!
Enjoy the preview!
I’ve known Simon for a while, we were in the same class at Algonquin college for fire fighting, and have kept in touch ever since. Simon has been a volunteer in Dunrobin (Ottawa) for a couple years longer than I’ve been on with Mississippi Mills. When Simon sent me a note to say he was engaged, and wanted Ivanette and I to photograph their wedding, it was an honour, and privilege. Chantal is one patient woman, and I learnt that after the first time we got together to chat about their wedding, and conversation strayed into chatting about the two departments. I photographed their engagement session at the Dunrobin Hall to include the trucks. Well, turns out Ottawa Fire had a call right beside Lago while we were doing their portraits, so with the Captain’s permission, we took a couple photos while they dealt with a minor call. Simon and I had already planned out having him wear one of his department shirts under his tux. It was a great wedding, and an even better party!
Wow, a year sure goes by quickly! A year ago I was photographing back to back weddings, our busiest season, when Mr. Tavis decided he would enter this world. The year has gone by so quickly! Watching him progress from fitting in my forearm to the walking, smiling, laughing little boy he is today. He’s my little work buddy, and keeps the day interesting! We were glad to have all the great family and friends join us to celebrate his first birthday! After a hard day’s work, seeing Ivanette’s face light up as he toddles over to the door squeeling and smiling because mommy’s home is the best part of the day!
Also, a big thanks to my brother Mark for picking up the camera for part of the day!
Last weekend it was a pleasure to photograph Stephanie & Jason’s wedding. When most of us hear destination wedding, we think of the sunny south. Stephanie & Jason actually live in Barbados, and since her parents and family members live in Ottawa, they decided to hold their wedding here! After a very long distance phone call, I got to know the couple, and immediately knew their wedding was going to be one of the most relaxed weddings I’ve ever photographed, which made the 5am wake up call for their 9 am ceremony completely worth while! Enjoy the photos!
This past Sunday I had the pleasure of hanging out with Heather and Marc (and creating some images along the way). I’ve been friends with Heather since high school, so when she asked Ivanette and I to photograph her wedding to Marc this coming October, it truly was an honor. Heather and Marc are both genuinely sincere, honest and loyal people.
Enjoy the preview, and again, a big thanks to Heather & Marc for allowing us to be part of their big day!
Ivanette and I have known Christine and Evan for a couple years now. Evan used to work with my younger brother, and over the years we’ve gotten to know Christine and Evan. We were excited for them when Evan finally proposed, and even more excited to be photographing their wedding next year in Carleton Place. We spent a Sunday afternoon at Evan’s cottage capturing their engagement session surrounded by the fall leaves. Evan was thrilled when I suggested we incorporate his prized Mustang into their session!
