Natalie & Mathew Tie The Knot At Calabogie Peaks Resort

This wedding is one for the books!  What a wedding! The weather did not stop this bride and groom from getting married, it just delayed it for a few hours giving them a story they would not forget!!! Natalie is a lifestyle  photographer from Chalk River, ON. When she told us we had the honours of photographing her wedding, we were faltered and so happy another photographer had put her trust in us! Who said a mix of sun, rain, thunder and lightning wasn’t going to help our creative juices flowing and help us come up with amazing unique wedding photos! We hope you enjoy looking at these wedding images! (For a full story on this wedding, scroll to the bottom of the page!)

This wedding was photographed at Calabogie Peaks Resort!

Anne-Marie+Anthony – Ottawa National Art Gallery Wedding & Notre Dame Basilica

A beautiful bride and groom from Alberta, an amazing venue, the landmark Notre Dame Basilica; What a winning combination!!!!! This bride looked amazing in her wedding dress. After the grooms photo session and the bridal session, we made our way to the breathtaking “Notre Dame Cathedral”  for the ceremony. It is always impressive to photograph inside this amazing church.  After the ceremony, the family photos were taken just outside the church’s doors. We then explored the wonderful scenery downtown Ottawa has to offer us and finished the photo session at their reception venue, the National Gallery of Canada. In all, this wedding day was perfect for the fairytale books!!! To Anne-Marie and Anthony: Congratulations again and we wish you the best in your new journey as husband and wife!

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!!!

Kim & Matt’s NEXT Restaurant Stittsville ON Wedding with Chef Blackie

What a day!   This was like a fairytale wedding .  Everything was perfect.  The day started with the groom’s coverage  and the bride’s portrait bridal session before the wedding. Then, we all made our way to a private park for the bride and groom and wedding party photos. A first look was carefully organized and directed by us, and then, the magic happened, the first look was captured on camera as beautifully as it was felt between Kim & Matt. Kim looked absolutely breathtaking in her Rue De Seine gown from Loversland boutique in Toronto. All the bridal party looked fabulous, the gray and yellow color scheme matched perfectly with the Boho Chic theme of this wedding.  The ceremony and reception was held at the Next restaurent in Stittsville Ontario. Chef Blackie and the staff at the restaurant made sure the guests received top notch service and amazing food. The timeline, decor and details could not have been planned better thanks to the help of Joelle Martin. In all, this was a day that can never be forgotten. To Kim and Matt, we wish you the best in your new lives together as husband and wife. May all your dreams come true !
