Ottawa Family Session at Andrew Haydon Park: The Griffioens

Ottawa-Family-Photography-Andrew-Haydon-Park-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyOne of my favourite things about my job is the relationships we create with our clients. To us, photographing a wedding day is so much more than just that one day – and my favourite moments often come from the sessions we end up doing with our clients as they live the rest of their lives.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel pretty darn fortunate to have been part of Sarah + Anders’ wedding day, and we had an absolute blast for sure, but getting to watch them start and now expand their family has been so amazing!

Ottawa Notre Dame Cathedral Wedding: Helene + Kevin

Ottawa-Notre-Dame-Cathedral-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThree years ago we were walking out of the Chateau Laurier after finishing our coverage of an absolutely lovely wedding day. We had just finished taking a few night photos around the hotel and we were walking back through the main hall to get to our car. This is when we were stopped by a gentleman asking if we were photographers and if we could take a photo of him and his date. They were such a lovely couple and we hadn’t actually completely put away our gear yet, so of course we said yes. I sent over the images to him a little while later and that was that.
