Ottawa Byward Market Engagement Session: Chantal + Brandon

Ottawa-Byward-Market-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyFinding the right place for your engagement session can sometimes be a little tricky, and for a lot of our couples we end up sending a list of a few recommended places for them to consider. But to make that list I always ask the same first question – are you thinking of a more rural or urban location?, as that helps me narrow things down a bit. And although I offered up a few rural locations when I first chatted with Chantal + Brandon about options, I knew from the get-go that they would end up with something more urban. Because, well, as you can clearly see, Chantal + Brandon definitely fit beautifully into the urban scene and the Byward Market was such a great fit for their session!

We walked all over the Byward Market finding some gorgeous, atypical gems along the way, like parking lot walls for example and those amazing graffiti cubes fit their style so perfectly! And of course we hit up the fantastic alleyways that the area has to offer. Chantal + Brandon hadn’t really ventured into the market too heavily, so getting to show them the beauty that the place has to offer was really fun for me.

Sadly we weren’t able to take advantage of the view from Nepean point, as the city was already setting up for the Canada Day fireworks display, but honestly, this session definitely didn’t suffer because of that!

I mentioned in their sneak peek that June was definitely a month of engagement sessions for us. It was absolutely chock full of them and there could have been no better way to end a month like that than with Chantal + Brandon’s rock star downtown engagement session! I had such a blast walking around the market with these two super awesome people and I am just so incredibly in love with the images we created together!
