Stonefields Estate Wedding: Tara + Dion

It had been almost exactly six months since Dave and I captured a full wedding day. I have been lucky enough to photograph a few elopements here and there, but nothing that lasted more than a couple hours. So when we headed over to the gorgeous Stonefields Estate for Tara + Dion’s wedding we knew our bodies were about to take a beating. But every aching, sore muscle was a million per cent worth it because not only was this day stunning, but Tara + Dion made sure to fill it with so much love and awesomeness that I almost didn’t notice my tired feet, almost.

Temple’s Sugar Bush Winter Wedding: Alexis + Peter:

Temple's-Country-Wedding-Sugar-Bush-Winter-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWinter weddings can be a little tricky. Of course it is cold and we need to adjust how we work outside to make sure no one gets frostbite, but there is also that pesky sun. The shorter days and earlier sunsets mean we end up with less daylight for outdoor photos, and if you aren’t super keen on having a first look (which is always our first suggestion on how to work with the shorter days), it can be a little tricky to get everything captured in the best lighting. But worry not because there are always solutions and we can work pretty darn quickly when we need to and that is exactly what we did for Alexis + Peter’s winter wedding!

Canadian Museum of Nature Winter Wedding: Jennifer + Steve

Museum-of-Nature-Winter-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyJenn + Steve’s wedding day started off with clear weather, then moved into freezing rain/slush, and ended up having a mini-blizzard right in the middle of it! In fact, at one point in the day, the snowflakes were so dense and large that they looked completely fake (like they were made of foam and a wind machine)! Jenn wanted snow on her wedding day and boy-oh-boy did she get it! This wonderfully sweet couple definitely made the most of it during their portrait portion of the day! Getting completely drenched by the snow was definitely worth the shots we got out in that less than pleasant weather.⁠⠀

Century Events Wedding: Kaitlin + Andrew

Century Events Wedding: Kaitlin + Andrew

Century-Events-Wedding-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI feel like every time I sit down to write a blog post for one of our weddings I draw a blank. And it’s not because I didn’t have a wonderful time at the wedding or anything like that, the exact opposite really – the day was so amazing and fun that I am completely lost for words! This is definitely the case with Kaitlin + Andrew’s wedding day. They were so amazing to work with, and their wedding party was a complete and utter blast that I don’t even know where to start with how much fun Dave and I had throughout their entire day!

Fairmont Chateau Laurier Wedding: Melissa + Rami

Ottawa-Notre-Dame-Chateau-Laurier-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI have been putting off writing this blog post for so long now, but not because I don’t like writing or any of those sorts of reasons, no, I have been putting it off because there were so many amazing things that happened during Melissa + Rami’s wedding that I honestly don’t even know where to start! So, since these two truly wonderful people will be getting their photos a little later today, I figured I should probably get this post done so I just started at the beginning (a very good place to start).
