I had so many postponed sessions this Fall thanks to all the rain we got here in Ottawa. Sarah + Jesse’s engagement session was one of those postponed shoots. And even when we did get to the revised session date, it still rained during their session. But it was all good in the end as we got some great shots despite the less than sunny skies.
Wow! Wow! Wow!
That pretty much sums up how I feel about Kirsten + Kyle‘s wedding day! Literally everything was utter perfection. I had been looking forward to this day since I first met this amazing couple and it was even better than what I had imagined!!
Some DJs do what is called an anniversary dance to kick off the evening. They bring all the couples onto the dance floor and as the song plays they slowly dwindle down the group by getting the more recently married couples to sit back down. In the end, the longest marriages stand before everyone and it is always so amazing and inspiring to see them still in love, but more than that, still having a great time together! I don’t think Sarah + Kelvin’s wedding day had an anniversary dance, but if they had Sarah’s parents Mary-Gail + Michael, with 38 years of married happiness, definitely would have been standing in front of everyone at the end of the song.
If you watch our social media feeds and/or read our blog regularly than you will have probably noticed that we photograph a lot of weddings at Temple’s Sugar Bush. We are there 6 or 7 times a year and I honestly love that we visit this wonderful venue (and all of the truly amazing staff) so often. But the time always comes each year where we are photographing our last wedding there and although this year that was Megan + Brendan’s wedding day. And although we are said that we won’t be shooting on their grounds until next year, Megan + Brendan were such a fantastic way to end off our 2019 Temple’s weddings.
Some couples we just click with. When we meet I instantly know that I am the photographer for them and they are the couple for me. We could talk endlessly about all the very best (and nerdiest) of things and have a wonderful time doing so. Nadine + Kevin are definitely one of those couples!
