Favourite Ring Photos from 2018

Ornamental-Gardens-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI’ve decided to toss a new end-of-the-year post into the mix – my absolute favourite ring photos from the past year!

Ring photos are my absolute favourite thing to do at weddings and engagement sessions as I feel like I just get to play. Creating new images that mesh into the photos of the day is something I take a lot of pride in being able to do well and something my clients have come to know and expect as part of their photos.

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Engagement Session: Melissa + Rami

Ottawa-Ornamental-Gardens-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyPretty much every photographer know about Golden Hour. it’s that gorgeous time in the evening as sunset approaches where the sun is lower in the sky and creates a nice warm glow that lights subjects up so beautifully.

And as I mentioned in their sneak peek photos, these two really know how to sizzle in front of a camera!!

Ottawa Arboretum Engagement Session: Jessica + Steve, Sneak Peek

Arboretum-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-maple-treeWhenever couples ask me if they can include their pet(s) in their engagement session I am always 100 per cent up for it. Not only will it allow me to grab some different photos for them, but it was also let them capture their family in full, including their furry, four-legged companions. The only recommendation or request I make is for them to try to bring someone along who can take care of the furry family members while we capture some non-pet focused photos.
