Once the gorgeous Fall season is done, so is our regular busy season. As we are primarily wedding photographers, our off-season starts up basically when winter starts to show up and we have far fewer weddings. But it is always such a nice treat to be able to wrap up our busy season by giving back and supporting one of the many wonderful charities in the area, Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario, by capturing their annual 3 Wishes Gala.
If you check out our posts on a regular basis you will know that we love supporting Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario and have been fortunate enough to cover several of their events and granted wishes over the last (almost) 2 years. We love each and every one of of their events so much, but the 3 Wishes Gala definitely holds a special place on our calendar each year.

This year had a great Christmas ‘tree’ decorating contest and other fun games, great door prizes and fantastic food. But the highlight of the night is always the dancing!

I have wanted to shoot down by the Ottawa Locks for such a long time and Naomi + Adam were the perfect couple for this scenic location. It was cold, it was wet but thankfully the skies opened up and gave us a few brief moments to capture some great images of these two lovebirds.
As I mentioned in their sneak peek, Naomi + Adam persevered through the rather cold and wet session and we shot between rain clouds. I am so happy we didn’t cancel the shoot and even happier to have had the chance to work with these two wonderful people!
