Stephanie & Doug Say I Do at the Auberge Des Gallant in Rigaud Quebec

Stephanie & Doug said I do on a warm sunny afternoon in an outdoor ceremony you see in movies! The day started with the bride and her entourage in the bridal suite. All the beautiful hair and makeup was done by Melissa Robert.  Stephanie looked radiant in her dress by Maggie Sottero.  Her bubbly personality, her beauty and her great attitude made the bridal session fun and relaxing. We took photos all around the auberge with her family and friends. We then took some time to photograph the groom and  his family and friends before the ceremony.

The lovely country wedding ceremony was preformed by the most professional and charming wedding officiant ,Lynne Langille from Exceptional Ceremonies. She even took the time to make it “personal” by sharing the couple’s journey from the time they met (this part was really funny and most entertaining) to the birth of their beautiful baby girl Ashley!  The groom, looked especially charming with Ashley in his arms, waiting for his bride to come down the aisle. We loved working with this couple! Doug has an amazing sense of humor and made us laugh all day! Doug and Stephanie compliment each other so well, they are really a perfect match. I loved watching them interact during the portrait session. We were also very impressed by the staff at the Auberge des Gallant. If you are planning a country style wedding outside of Ottawa on the Quebec side, then, Auberge des Gallant will not disappoint.  The appetizers were amazing and the service was impeccable. We took the bridal party to the Botanical gardens located on the other side of their property ( a 2 minute limo ride + 5 minute walk ) and the auberge des gallant staff arrived 15 minutes later with drinks, water and appetizers  for everyone… WOW! I have never seen this kind of service by a reception venue before. After the wedding portrait session, Doug and Stephanie made their grand entrance “officially” as husband and wife…What a beautiful day! Here are a few highlights we wanted to share with you.

Stephanie & Mark – Engagement Photography Ottawa

Stephanie and Mark were a great couple to photograph. We chose the candid, modern, unposed approach as it suited their personality and style. Here is a little story of how they met! “We met at hope volley ball 3 years ago. He offered to helped me carry my cooler. Luckily he was friends with a bunch of my friends so we where able to hang out a few more times after that. We quickly became friends, eventually best friends. We soon realized we wanted a lot of the same things in life. ( big family, travel, goals, and dreams). Our lives are full of ups and downs but we wouldn’t change it for a second because we have each other.”

They had a beautiful wedding August 4th and we can’t wait to post images of their wedding day! Until then, here is a look at their engagement photo session done in our indoor and outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario!

Sanaz & Yashar – Engagement session – Ottawa, Ontario

Everything started at Carleton university in 2008 for this couple! The bride explains how they met” It was a first day of a school and we were both in our 3rd year of engineering, Yashar was with his friends (who I knew too) when I joined them to go to the library. There was something there…..we were walking and talking and we had no idea we were already in the library…time just stood still, it was a magical moment. In February 2010, at a cozy restaurant in Old Montreal, he proposed. It was so perfect and I could not stop crying, I was so happy that although it was cold and snowy I could walk in my high heels and thin jacket without complaining:). That spring, we both graduated together from the  Engineering program. After he finished  his Master’s degree, we got married!”

This is a wonderful, beautiful, smart couple meant to be together. We created amazing images with them during their engagement session and their wedding. Here is what the bride has to say about us:”  We are so happy and special thanks to all of you, you are the best photographers ever, and we really mean it, you have no idea how much you guys made ourselves and our family happy and proud with your great job! (so far it is been next to impossible to look throught all the wedding images and not cry)”.

Christine & Damien – Mariage – Le Belvédère, Wakefield, Quebec

When Christine and Damien met over 5 years ago, it was love at first sight. Damien was an avid fisherman and loved the outdoors, and Christine was a city girl….. you know what they say! Opposites always attract. On their first date, Damien took Christine to his cottage. The most romantic and perfect setting was at the rendez-vous; a sunset, a beach and of course…a first kiss. Years later, at sunset, Damien surprised Christine by proposing, down on one knee, at that same exact location.

Christine and Damien got married on June 9th, 2012 at Le Belvédère, a new wedding, meeting and specials events center located thirty minutes north of Ottawa, just outside of Wakefield Quebec. They planned their wedding  around their love of nature and the beautiful scenery overlooking the Gatineau parks! The ceremony was breathtaking! As a photographer, I totally recommend this venue. The wedding party was amazing, everyone laughed and we had a blast during the photo shot at the red covered bridge and then, driving around wakefield to find a dock. What an adventure. Their grand entrance was like one in the movies- they had their fist dance surrounded by all their guests while a pitch perfect singer (and friend of the couple) interpreted the classic love song “At Last” from Etta James… Photographing Christine and Damien’s wedding was a real treat. Their beauty, personality and love for each other was effortlessly captured through the lens making this wedding, one to remember!

Ottawa Winter Wedding – Aileen & Etienne

I wanted to share the highlights of this wonderful winter wedding on February 25, 2012 in Ottawa. We started the photo session at the newly renovated  Westin Hotel. The view of the Ottawa city created a great backdrop for the preparations and the portrait photo session. The bride was wearing a tailor made originally designed purple dress and the groom had a purple shirt to compliment  the color scheme. Their individuality, personality and love for each other shinned through the moment we arrived for the photo session.  The bridal session, the families and the couple’s photos were all done before the ceremony at the Westin Hotel and at the Ottawa Convention Center. We had so much fun during the photo-shoot and that’s what it’s all about! We then made our way for the ceremony and reception at La Bekta Dinning. The wedding celebrations did not stop there, it kept on going the day after at  Le Château Montebello hotel in Quebec,  for a brunch for all their family and friends. There was plenty of snow at the rendez-vous and I was so glad because it created a wonderful winter scene! -and let’s not forget the blowing snow falling from the trees onto my Canon camera and 70-200mm lens…We ended with a photo session around the Chateau followed by a sleigh ride! Here are some highlights of the winter wedding day!

Randa & Ramsey – Wedding at the Hilton Lac Leamy

We had the pleasure and privilage of photographing the Rahal family since the 1990’s. Family  and wedding photography is important to them and we are honored to have been there creating memories for them to cherish for the past two decades.

Last august, it was Randa and Ramsey’s turn in the spotlight….and the spotlight was shining bright that’s for sure. What an Ottawa wedding!!!! Modern yet traditional, fun and entertaining, sweet and special…Their wedding was is every way…like a fairy tale ! The bride was wearing a Vera Wang Dress ( the same wedding dress as in the movie Bride Wars with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway) and Gold Jimmy Choo shoes.   The ceremony was at the  Saints Peter & Paul  church in Ottawa and their wedding planner was from Marry Me Productions.  We did some photos at the “Tabaret Hall” at the University of Ottawa. The reception was at the wonderful  Hilton Lac Leamy during “Les Grands Feux du Casino- Sounds of Light competition”. Have a look at this breathtaking Ottawa wedding!
