I love when couples come to sessions with an idea or two for photos . And I love it even more when they want to incorporate a little bit more of their personalities into their photos. So when Victoria + Nathan wanted to add a game of Magic, a small white pumpkin and some tree climbing into their session I was all for it! Add a couple Instax cameras and it definitely made for a super fun session!
I don’t know if there was any better way to wrap up Sarah + Isabelle’s engagement session than by popping into one of the many patios in the Byward Market for a drink! And not only did these two amazing ladies know how to end their session on a high note, they were also an absolute dream to work with making their entire session absolutely effortless and so much fun!
Finding the right place for your engagement session can sometimes be a little tricky, and for a lot of our couples we end up sending a list of a few recommended places for them to consider. But to make that list I always ask the same first question – are you thinking of a more rural or urban location?, as that helps me narrow things down a bit. And although I offered up a few rural locations when I first chatted with Chantal + Brandon about options, I knew from the get-go that they would end up with something more urban. Because, well, as you can clearly see, Chantal + Brandon definitely fit beautifully into the urban scene and the Byward Market was such a great fit for their session!

If you have spent any time on our website, blog or social media pages you have probably noticed how much we love incorporating nature into our images as much as possible. And when you live and work in a city as nature-filled as Ottawa, it really isn’t hard.
In fact, some of our most urban sessions have had that beautiful nature feel to them in at least a handful of shots.
