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 & 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!

Valérie Simard & Grant Clitsome E-session

Valerie and Grant’s engagement photo session was so fun to do. We all took turns at photographing this lovely couple. These are one hour photo sessions because we love to take our time to get to know the couple before their wedding day. It was easy to capture their beauty and the love between each other. Their individual personalities shone through each and every shot. Valerie and Grant’s big day is TODAY… July 14th, 2012.   Here are a few samples from their engagement session photographed at our Cumberland, Ottawa indoor and outdoor studio!

We love using the natural light in our new Cumberland, Ottawa Portrait Studio. Sometimes, we will mix strobe and natural light for a different effect.

3 years ago, we planted a willow tree.. It is finally big enough for photo sessions!
