I am so incredibly happy that the weather forecast was wrong leading up to Ellen + Mike’s engagement session! Everything had been calling for rain – so much so that we were thinking of alternative locations and some indoor spots. Thankfully, come Sunday morning the skies looked completely clear and super sunny and the forecast changed its opinion on the whole rain matter.
I used to do surveys in different buildings around the city of Ottawa. Okay, so I didn’t do field work very often, but when I did, it was building surveys. The point is, it let me see a lot of different areas around town that I may not have spotted otherwise. The Garden of Provinces and Territories is one of those areas so when Sarah-Anne + Corey mentioned that they lived nearby I thought it would be a perfect place to start their engagement session.
Sometimes the photography Gods bless me with the most amazing sessions ever! The perfect weather (not too hot, not too cold), a beautiful blue sky with puffy white clouds for interest, pink blooms in the leafy trees, and a gorgeous couple full of laughter. This was definitely one of those sessions!!
We’ve had the fortune of working with Stephanie (half of the genius ladies over at Opportunity Knocks Events) at several shoots, shows, weddings and events. She was even our entry into the world of Make-A-Wish, for which we couldn’t be more grateful. We always have so much fun working with her, her husband and her teams in general. So much so that when she asked us to do a family shoot, we were absolutely thrilled!
So I am thinking Mother Nature might have just skipped Spring this year. First the season was super late with a cold April and May. And now it seems like it has been decided that since Spring was so late, we might as well just start Summer and forget all about it.
