A TRUE LOVE STORY – KIM & JOHN’S ENGAGEMENT SESSION DOWNTOWN OTTAWA

Here is a session we took a few years back of Kim and John’s engagement. Looking at these photos gives me hope that spring will eventually come..LOL. We photographed their engagement pics in downtown Ottawa, at Major hill’s park and at the “Oh So Good” amazing desserts restaurant on the market. We hope to see greenery in this nation’s capital really soon. The winter has been very long. To all our wedding couple’s getting married this spring, summer and fall, it’s time to book your engagement session!

Suzanne & Andre – Cumberland Ontario Garden Wedding Photography

Weddings are always magical…and sometimes as photographers, we witness a kind of love that inspirers us! This is truly what happened on Suzanne and Andre’s wedding day. The love they share for one another is amazing. They are so comfortable with each other and they shine in front of the camera. During the couple’s photos, it was great to watch them walking hand in hand, laugh and kiss as if it was the first time over and over again! To forget that there is a camera around is really the key to spontanious and natural looking photos.

The wedding was at their estate in Cumberland, Ontario on a very hot summer day. Everything was planned to a T, from the grand entrance of the bride on a vintage red dodge convertible to the music during the ceremony from the bride’s daughter Manon, a talented flutist and her aunt, an amazing singer from New Brunswick… The guest were entertained with drinks, cocktails and an impressive collection of old cars worth viewing on their property. The art of entertaining was truly mastered at this wedding!. Here are a few highlights from their engagement photo session and their wedding day!

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!

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!

Tina & Mathieu -Wedding Photography in Ottawa, Perth and Lanark, Ontario

Tina and Mathieu’s wedding day was one of the most memorable for me. Some vendors and photographers in the wedding industry say that weddings are the same….well, I don’t feel that way. Every wedding is unique and it’s my job as a photographer to capture these unique and special moments throughout the day. This is exactly what I did for Tina and Mathieu’s wedding day and I had a blast! They are celebrating their one year anniversary this weekend and I wanted to show you some pages of their wedding album. I started the day at Mathieu’s parents house in Orleans and the photo session was fun and relaxed…The boys were playing pool and making jokes…I knew that they would be a very cool wedding party to photograph.Then, I got to the bride’s home and they were all ready for the bridal photo session. What a beautiful bride ! We did not have a lot of space, but it did not mater. She poses with such ease I though she had modeled before. Then we were waiting, waiting and waiting for the limo to get there…..and I kept thinking…how do we get 7 brides maids plus the bride to the church if the limo doesn’t come….. panic set in a little bit…and then, the limo showed up…oufffffff! She was one her way to get married!

The ceremony was at Paroissse Saint-François d’Assise, a beautiful church on Fairmont / Wellington street in Ottawa. After the group picture, we stayed in front of the church for some extra photos. The wedding party of 16 people got in the limo to go to Perth for the formal photography session….and guess what ? The limo does not start 🙁  I am a profesional photographer with 16 years of experience, traned to handle changes like this at the last minute, so, in my mind, there was no problem… I had it al planned to take photos of the families in front of the church, then, to take a walk with the couple and the wedding party and head for downtown, etc,…. Just when we were about to start, so did the limo….Oufffffff again!

I decided to ride in the limo with them and got crazy wedding party action photos… it was a great ride.

We got to the park in Perth, and it was breathtaking. I’m so glad we got there. We did the families, the wedding party and the lighting was at it’s best. The girls all took their shoes off to climb on a rock next to the water for the perfect wedding party photo. 20 minutes later, all the girls put their shoes back on except for the bride….Her wedding shoes had disappeared…WHAT? Can you believe that ! Someone stole her wedding shoes…I’ve never heard anything like this before. Tina is so easy going she just said, “The day must go on….can someone get me another pair of shoes!” Ottawa Photographers - Wedding Photography - Ottawa Wedding Photographers - On Location Wedding Photographers - Wedding Photographers

As we were taking the photos, they noticed two guys fishing and asked if they could borrow their fishing line for a few shots…. Not even 5 seconds after Mathieu put his line in, her caught a fish. We all laughed!

The reception was at the Temple Sugar Camp on Ferguson Falls Road in Lanark, Ontario. Another beautiful setting for a few more photos and then, party time! What a great wedding…I did not want it to end. Tina and Matt, I wish you all the best! You are sooooooo perfect for each other.
