St. Patrick’s Cathedral + All Saint’s Event Space Wedding: Rowan + Andrew

St-Patricks-Cathedral-All-Saints-Event-Space-Ottawa-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI don’t even know where to start with this wedding day – there were just so many amazing moments and surprises throughout the entire wedding that I am having a hard time writing a cohesive blog post that includes everything I want it to. But then I remembered that I am not a writer but rather a photographer and what you are probably really here for are the pictures – and Rowan + Andrew’s wedding day definitely has loads of those to share with you all!!

Hog’s Back Park Engagement Session: Samantha + Damjan

Hog's-Back-Park-Engagement-Session-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI like to think that everyone has a spot (or maybe a couple) in their town/city that is special to them. Maybe a memorable event happened their or just it is a place where they can go and clear their head. My list of places has changed and grown over the years, but Hog’s Back Park will always be close to my heart. And I know it will be special for Samantha + Damjan too as their relationship grew here as they trained for marathons and just generally got to know one another better running through the park’s paths.

Orchard View Wedding: Miranda + Jason

Monk Environmental Park Engagement Session: Brittany + Mike

Monk-Environmental-Park-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyEveryone was so anxious for Summer to get here, they just couldn’t wait for the warm weather to come and to be able to get those summer tans started. Me on the other hand, well I could have done with a bit more Spring. As pretty as Summer can be, I’m really not a huge fan. And one of the reason for that is because of the bugs!┬áSummer to me equates to multiple months of whacking bugs and scratching the inevitable (and abundant) bites, and Brittany + Mike’s engagement session was the start of all of that for me this year as I came away with so many bites that I lost count. That being said, it was all so incredibly worth it as in the end as I got to spend a wonderful evening with these two and we created some gorgeous photos together!
