A few weeks back on a snowy November day, I had the pleasure of photographing Josée and David’s gorgeous and intimate wedding at the Cumberland Heritage Museum. This was the first time I had the opportunity to meet them, as we had taken care of the details by phone and e-mail leading up to their special day. They are wonderful, caring, and just so relaxed! Their personalities showed in the details of their day, they had a grand total of 11 guests, and were very relaxed about their whole day! Enjoy the preview!
Ivanette and I have known Christine & Evan for a few years now through family, and were thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph their wedding! With a big thanks to Sara at Prior Engagements for making the Canoe Club look the best it’s ever looked! It threatened to rain on their wedding day, but luckily the clouds cleared during their ceremony and we were able to make some gorgeous images outside!
Ivanette met Pamela and Sherman at the Ottawa wedding show this January. As luck would have it, as they were passing by, an image from Stephanie & Frederic’s wedding we photographed last fall popped onto the screen. Turns out they were also planning their wedding at the NDHQ WO’S & Sgts’ Mess Hall here in Ottawa. It’s an absolutely gorgeous hall, and the food is to die for! After chatting with with Ivanette, and going through some of our work, they decided that having a professional photographer might be something they wanted after all. We met with them a few weeks later, and have been looking forward to their wedding! They are full of emotion and are absolutely hilarious! As favours, Pamela & Sherman personally handed out support our troops pins to each guest. Their focus was on family, so we set up a photobooth and Ivanette took gorgeous portraits of all their guests while I was outside capturing their formal photos. It was a great day!
I first met Chelsea and her amazing family at her brother’s wedding back in the fall of 2009. Ivy didn’t have the chance to join me as she was in Vancouver preparing to work at the Olympics the following year. I can tell you however that she was jealous of not being able to photograph all of the amazing details! When Chelsea messaged me on facebook to let us know that Scott had proposed, and she wanted us to photograph their wedding, we were both excited! Turns out Scott’s family is just as nice and caring! From the details that Chelsea chose, the Champagne Highland Dancers acting as ushers, and then having three performances during the reception, and the absolute abundance of emotion throughout the day. The most memorable moment to me was Chelsea’s reaction as Scott stepped out to reveal he was wearing a kilt. Chelsea’s Scottish roots are important to herself and her family. Scott’s effort into bringing in a kilt bearing her family’s Tartan was a sign of just how much he loves Chelsea!
Ivanette and I had the pleasure of photographing a unique wedding celebration. Lisa and Randy had a small wedding at city hall last July, and planned a “simple” reception for their first anniversary. Plans evolved and it was quite the party in Manotick! We were honoured to be part of their celebration, which revolved around family. Randy involved his 3 other daughters, and Abigail took a seat right in the center of the head table. Even though she was only 11 months old, you could tell she already has her father’s sense of humour, and laughed at every punchline during the speeches!
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!
