If I’m being honest, I wasn’t feeling great heading to Julie + Shenfield’s wedding (don’t worry it wasn’t anything I could pass along). So much so in fact, that I brought Dave along even though he wasn’t booked for the wedding coverage. He came as backup to help carry my gear and in case I couldn’t shoot to my normal quality. Fortunately he wasn’t needed for anything other than being a pack mule, but I of course took advantage of him being there when it came to veil tosses, multi-tasking shots, and those wonderful candid images. I mean, why wouldn’t I, he was there and he is so darn good at it!Continue reading “Ottawa Intimate Backyard Wedding: Julie + Shenfield”
From the moment the pandemic hit our area and shut down business and weddings, Tanya + Scott knew they wanted to keep their wedding date just as it was. They didn’t want to wait another year to get married even if it meant a tiny elopement. Tanya let me know this right from the first email I sent out all of our clients, letting them know their options with us and all that jazz. And as I watched more and more of our 2020 weddings get postponed to next year, it was a really nice comfort knowing that I would get to work with at least one of our awesome couples before the year was over.
And these two definitely made the day so much fun! Which is particularly nice since this was our last wedding of the year and I do love ending our season with a fun-filled day and a couple I truly adore!Continue reading “Fall Backyard Intimate Wedding: Tanya + Scott”
Mariah + Benjamin’s day was pretty much a perfect day! From their stunning backyard ceremony to the incredibly heartwarming (and tear-jerking) moments during their reception, I honestly can’t think of a single thing that could possibly need changing, and that takes into consideration the fact that the bride took a wee tumble down a hill during family portraits (luckily she was neither hurt nor was her dress dirtied).
It seems weird to say that an entire year has passed since we were lucky enough to photograph Sarah + Anders’ wedding day. That’s right, it was a year ago that we were and tromping through the mud, looking for the nearest umbrella or canopy for our subjects, and just generally trying to keep our gear dry. In other words, it was an amazing wedding and I would redo every sopping minute of it in a heartbeat.
So apparently I never posted about the amazing time we had at Sarah + Anders wedding after we had set up their Photobooth!! I guess it has just been so busy that I missed sharing that with everyone. (But don’t worry, the actual photos were sent to the lovely couple back when they got their other wedding photos!)
