So Dave and I spent a couple days on the rooftop of the Brookstreet Hotel having some fun with Make-A-Wish earlier this month. I’ll be sharing more about all of that (including the photos of course) a little later on this week, but for now, the part I want to share is that I of course got sunburnt. My side of the roof was in the shade for almost the entire day, and I swear I used sunscreen – but for the last 1-2 hours of the event, I was in complete sun on the roof of a very tall building.
I mention this because when I showed up to Miranda + Jason’ engagement session, I made sure I was covered from head to toe (well, from neck to toe) to try and make sure my poor skin didn’t get any worse. And despite how uncomfortable it was to walk around in the sun and heat with long sleeves on, it was made all the better by being able to work with two absolutely marvelous people like Miranda + Jason.
Over the last couple years we have started capturing more and more weddings in the Ottawa Valley. Most of these are in Perth and the nearby area, and I honestly couldn’t be happier about this as the area is absolutely gorgeous!!
The nature in the area is stunning and the little town of Perth itself is so adorable! It also has one of my favourite parks of all time in it – Stewart Park. Which, as luck would have it, happens to be where Lindsay + Shawn wanted to do their engagement session.
Sometimes session dates get bumped. Typically this is because of the weather, and more often than not the weather that warrants moving dates around is rain. I am always so nervous when I first bring up moving a session as half of me thinks that as soon as we confirm a new date, the skies will brighten up and it would have been great conditions. But in the case of Shanna + Gilles’ session, the new date was wonderful!
Remember that really awesome surprise proposal during the Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope event earlier this month? Well a couple days ago I got to hang out with Shanna + Gilles again to capture their engagement session and boy-oh-boy, did they ever nail this shoot!
