Katrina & David – Brookstreet Hotel Ottawa Wedding

Katrina and David had a wonderful wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel.  The hotel was perfect for the bridal sessions with large windows and plenty of natural light. Katrina had a suite with a very modern fell giving me great photo opportunities. A first look was carefully organized outside the hotel so David and Katrina could see each other for the very first time that day. All the photos were taken around Brookstreet Hotel! The ceremony and reception followed. The service and the food were exceptional. To Katrina and David, you two are amazing together. The love you share is so eminent and when you looked at each other, it was easy to capture true love. Congratulations again and thank you for allowing me to create wonderful memories of your wedding day!

MICHELLE & HARVEY’S OTTAWA WEDDING – NEXT RESTAURANT & N.A.C.

Michelle and Harvey tied the knot last May.  The ceremony was preformed at the National Art Center. While the guests were enjoying lunch, we took the couple and the bridal party for a walk around the downtown core. The Chateau Laurier, the locks, the canal, and Major Hill’s Park gave us great backdrops as we took beautiful pictures of this gorgeous couple. Of course, it had to be the hottest day of the summer, with the weather reaching 38 degrees, but this couple did not let the heat slow them down. The photos continued at a Stittsville park after the couple changed for their wedding reception. The evening held at Next restaurent, was filled with fun, laughter, heartfelt speeches, awesome food and entertainment. (We were even treated to a solo signing performance by the bride’s father!). In all, it was a perfect day.

Michelle and Harvey, your wedding day was magical! Enjoy your time visiting the world and we will see you when you are back in Canada!  ottawa sikh wedding photographers

Chrystal & Mario Say “I Do” At Lago

Chrystal and Mario were a joy to work with. They are beautiful, kind, generous and so much fun! We learned to get to know them throughout the years at weddings and especially when they were both part of a wedding party we photographed in Jamaica. The day started with the boys at Mario’s parents home in Orleans. Just before leaving, we wanted to photograph all the boy outside in the middle of the street. Mario took so long to come out of the house that the guys had time to walk the streets and find a toilet for him to sit on! This was hilarious! We then made our way to the bride’s home for her bridal portrait session. Crystal was stunning! Wow, What a gorgeous bride!!! The bridesmaids, parents and family helped make the morning session go smoothly.  The wedding ceremony and reception was at the Lago Bar restaurent in Ottawa. The ceremony was performed by Alan Viau from All Seasons Weddings Ceremonies. After the group photo, we took family photos with Dow’s Lake as the backdrop. The formal couple and wedding party photos were done at the Experimental Farm. We finished under light rain, in the middle of the street, under the “Little Italy sign”.  A perfect ending to the photo session as the couple were headed to Italy for their honeymoon! The venue, the food, the atmosphere, the music (especially the first dance song performed by Mario’s Dad) were at the rendez-vous! What a memorable night.!!!!! Here are some photos that highlight the day! Congratulations to Crystal and Mario!!!

Melissa + Paul, Bean Town Ranch Wedding

This lovely couple  from Whitehorse, Yukon decided  to get married in this part of town!  Melissa is from Cumberland Ontario and we did their engagement session at the Cumberland Museum.  For their ceremony and reception venue, they choose the Bean Town Ranch. Everything was wonderful; the weather, the venue, the entertainment from pianist and singer Kimberley Dunn, the food. There were even fireworks accross the lake after diner. What a great day. The bride looked stunning in her Lis Simon wedding gown made from a Canadian  designer from Calgary. The groom looked evenly stylish sporting a dark grey suit. Together, they are one and proved that weddings are wonderfull and so worth the effort. Here are some highlight!

Ottawa Gymnastics Duo – Elodie et Julie-Anne – Photographie de Sport

WOW!!!! Incroyable.  Élodie et Julie-Anne ont commencées la gymnastique à l’âge de 5 ans (Julie-Anne) et 6 ans (Élodie). Elle sont devenues amies en 2010 lorsqu’elle s’entraînait toutes les deux dans le même groupe de gymnastique provincial à Tumblers. Bien qu’elle soit toutes les deux « retraitées » à cause de blessures, elle s’entrainent plusieurs fois par semaine. La passion pour ce sport existe encore très fort pour ces deux amies!!!  Cette prise de vue était simplement pour le plaisir, et pour illustrer leur amitié et leur passion pour la gym et la contorsion. En voici quelques exemples.
