Ottawa Love Lock Bridge Engagement Session: Alyson + Dan

Corktown-Bridge-Ottawa-Love-Lock-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-engagementIf you have spent any time on our website, blog or social media pages you have probably noticed how much we love incorporating nature into our images as much as possible. And when you live and work in a city as nature-filled as Ottawa, it really isn’t hard.

Major’s Hill Engagement Session: Carla + Jean-Francois

Major-hill-park-engagement-session-stairs-ottawa-stephanie-beach-photographyI love it when couples bring along two different outfits to their engagement session: one more casual and relaxed; and the other more formal and dressed up. It allows us to essentially get two different batches of photos in one session. So when Carla + Jean-Francois asked if they could switch outfits partway through their session, I was all for it!
