Over the last couple years we have started capturing more and more weddings in the Ottawa Valley. Most of these are in Perth and the nearby area, and I honestly couldn’t be happier about this as the area is absolutely gorgeous!!
The nature in the area is stunning and the little town of Perth itself is so adorable! It also has one of my favourite parks of all time in it – Stewart Park. Which, as luck would have it, happens to be where Lindsay + Shawn wanted to do their engagement session.
Sometimes session dates get bumped. Typically this is because of the weather, and more often than not the weather that warrants moving dates around is rain. I am always so nervous when I first bring up moving a session as half of me thinks that as soon as we confirm a new date, the skies will brighten up and it would have been great conditions. But in the case of Shanna + Gilles’ session, the new date was wonderful!
Remember that really awesome surprise proposal during the Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope event earlier this month? Well a couple days ago I got to hang out with Shanna + Gilles again to capture their engagement session and boy-oh-boy, did they ever nail this shoot!
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.
Rain on your wedding day is something that you really can’t control – despite how much anti-rain dancing you may do before the big day. But, in my opinion, the best way to deal with it is to have a great Plan B and embrace the weather whatever it turns out to be.
