LEIGH-ANN & DEREK’S FAIRMONT CHATEAU LAURIER & NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OTTAWA WEDDING

Leigh-Ann & Derek got married at one of Ottawa’s most famous historic buildings built in 1841 , The NotreDame Cathedral Basilica. This church is so beautiful and for photographers, it is a true blessing! We also love to photograph outside the church and use the side doors in the background.

This sweet couple got ready at the Chateau Laurier, they both had rooms there so it was perfect and close to the ceremony site. Leigh-Ann has to be the tiniest bride I have ever photograph. She is so pretty and minute but has the biggest heart ever. Her natural beauty is so stunning, she looked amazing when she put on her wedding dress…wow. Derek is tall, dark and handsome. He is so thoughtful and has the nicest personality and smile!! They make a fantastic couple.   After the ceremony, we took couple and family photos around the church. When all the guests left for the cocktail, we left for a walk at Major hill’s park with the couple and wedding party. There are so many photo opportunities along the way, and walking on such a wonderful day gives time for the couple and wedding party to chat and have fun along the way! The reception was held in our favorite room at the Chateau, The Laurier Room. After diner, we took more photos of the balcony and were blessed with an amazing fireworks show. What an amazing day and evening!

To Leigh-Ann and Derek: You are beautiful, caring and perfect for each other. Congratulations !

ALEX AND PAT’S WESTIN | 18 RESTAURANT’S WEDDING

It all started at the House of Barons, where the groom and his groomsmen got a clean shave. Since high school, the groom has worked at the Westin hotel. It was a perfect fit that both, the bride and groom got ready there. Alex found her dress at Kleinfeld in Toronto. She looked absolutely stunning! The couple’s first look  was photographed at the locks close to the National Art Centre. We were blessed to have an energetic, fun and beautiful couple,  a most amazing wedding party and great positive energy to make the photo session fun! The ceremony was held at the Eighteen restaurant on York Street in Ottawa and the intimate ceremony was performed by a friend. A cocktail style reception following the ceremony was held at the same venue and the bride and groom got to enjoy every minute of it with their guests. First looks are becoming more and more popular. That recipe makes the bride and groom totally stress free to enjoy every minute of the cocktail and reception! To Alex and Pat! Congratulations! Your wedding was a blast!

BABY SLOAN IS ALL GROWN UP – LIFESTYLE STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY

“Baby Sloan” is the most adorable little girl. She is polite, pretty and determined to do things her way. Kids often dictate the photo sessions. Our job as photographers is to guide the child to the set, chair, rug or area we want them photographed in, and then, let their imagination and the magic happen. We have tricks up our sleeves, but sometime, even the funniest toy or most beautiful stuffed animal won’t make a difference in the world if the child does not want to be there. We need to build a trusting relationship first, get them to like us, and photograph in a non-obstructive style. This approach works really well when parents want a “lifestyle photo session”. Here are a few highlights!

ISABELLE & SCOTT’S BEAUTIFUL CUMBERLAND HERITAGE VILLAGE MUSEUM WEDDING

 Elegance, beauty and class in an organic country setting… This sums up Isabelle and Scott’s wedding pretty well. The museum is located on a 100-acre site in the Village of Cumberland and is home to a small number of livestock in the summer, a working sawmill, forge, carpentry and pump factory, and several other buildings of local historical significance as the schoolhouse, the church and the train station. This museum is an amazing venue for an outdoor wedding, it is only 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa and the scenery and photo opportunity are endless!  We started the day with the groom’s coverage at their friend’s home followed by Isabelle’s bridal session at her parents home in Orleans. The ceremony and the reception was held on site at the Cumberland Museum. The ceremony’s location was carefully selected and designed by Stacey Price and Erin Charmichael from The Design Co. in an alley between two rows of majestic trees. It was breathtaking. When the flower petals where set, and Isabelle walked down the aisle, it was a beautiful moment. To view more photos showcasing the details, style and colour scheme from this wedding, visit The Design co‘s website. The weather was perfect, the guests mingled and visited the site while we took the wedding party and family photos. After the cocktail, we all made our way to the outdoor reception area and enjoyed nachos, tacos, pizza’s and salads from a variety of gourmet food trucks chosen by the bride and groom. Everyone partied on till the early morning!!!

To Isabelle and Scott: Thank you for allowing us to record the events of you’re wedding day. It is a privilege and a great honour to be a part of our couple’s most special day! You make a beautiful couple. We wish you happiness forever and love always!

Congratulations to the proud parents of two beautiful children and one more on the way! For an extra glimpse into their life, check out Isabelle’s lifestyle blog Demoiselle Isabelle!
