Jenn + 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.⠀
So we all know that Ottawa is cold this time of the year. And therefore, whether or not you have been part of one, you could figure out that outdoor engagement session (or really outdoor sessions of any kind) could be a little more than uncomfortable when you factor in all the time spent without coats on. And that is why looking at indoor locations can be a really great idea for your session. So when Hannah + Curtis suggested doing their photos in and around the Canadian Museum of Nature, I was super on board!
Their sneak peek was all about their four legged guest, Archer. And, in my opinion, he deserved the attention as he was just so awesome Jenna + Tim’s day. So cuddly, fluffy and soft and sweet as can be – and quite photogenic to boot! He wasn’t named Best Dog for nothing after all.
But the highlight of this wedding day really was the lovely couple themselves. Jenna + Tim are so wonderful and sweet.
The most important factor on any wedding day is the people. The lovely couple of course, but also the friends and family that help them celebrate their love. And when you are planning your day, you need to remember that some of the most important ‘people’ in your life have fur and four legs.
Happy First Anniversary to Caren + Jason!!
Your wedding day was so touching and I was incredibly honoured to be a part of it.
