Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Maternity Session: The Radulovics

Where do I even start with this one?! Seriously I don’t know. Samantha + Damjan are honest-to-goodness two of the nicest, most thoughtful people Dave + I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their engagement session took my breath away and their wedding day was one of the most touching and heart-warming celebrations we have gotten to be a part of. So when Damjan reached out to me about their maternity session, I was so ridiculously excited – and even more so because it was all a complete surprise for Sam!!

Lifestyle Family Photography: The Konings + Brickells

In starting and restarting this post as many times as I have this morning, I have come to realize that writing a blog post about your own family session is actually really tricky. But this will get written and may be this time I won’t end up deleting everything and restarting from scratch – haha!

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.

Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn + Family Photography: The Kealeys

Technically we had already postponed this session by the time I headed out of the house towards Mariah + Ben for their lifestyle newborn and family shoot. The weather was supposed to be quite bad complete with not only rain, but thunderstorms, and because of that we had decided to move the session to the following week. But about 2 hours before I was supposed to leave, the sky was still absolutely lovely and the forecast changed entirely – well, it changed for the 1-2 hours the actual shooting would take place and that was good enough for everyone involved! And I am so very happy we went ahead with the session, not only was the weather that afternoon beautiful, the weather next weekend was not.

Ottawa Surprise Elopement: Allison + Matt

In getting this post together I had to go look up the most recent wedding featured here to remember how to title this one, etc., and you know what I realized? It has been 6 months since our last wedding!! SIX MONTHS!! That’s absolutely crazy to me! If I had to guess, I would have likely guessed 4 months at the most, but I obviously would have been wrong about that. But as much as this pandemic and the forced changes on weddings and events has affected me and other vendors, it has affected all of our couples too. So many people have had to drastically change their wedding day plans and it’s not an easy situation to be in. Nearly every couple we have and are working with is doing things slightly differently, including Allison + Matt
