Intimate Wedding at Rockcliffe Park Pavilion: Brook + Kyle

Another beautiful wedding and another gorgeous sun-filled day. Oh wait, that’s not how 2021 has gone at all!

It may not have been great for the weather, again, but in tried and true fashion, the couple made the most of it and didn’t let the rain get them down for one instant. Brook + Kyle took the entire day in stride and the fact that her dress was wet before they left the parking lot didn’t seem to bother Brook as she really was focused on the most important part of the day – marrying her lovely groom!

Intimate Wedding in Andrew Haydon Park: Annie + Chris

I seem to have just the worst luck when it comes to weddings at Andrew Haydon Park. And just so we’re clear, by that I mean the worst luck with the weather at weddings here. I have shot many here now and literally all but one have endured a rather wet, rainy day. And even the one that didn’t get rain, got an intense heat wave (to the degree that people were started to feel ill despite the copious amounts of water we had around).

But despite the less than ideal weather conditions, Annie + Chris didn’t let it get them down for too long as they definitely made the most of the day and our time together!

Ottawa Intimate Backyard Wedding: Julie + Shenfield

If I’m being honest, I wasn’t feeling great heading to Julie + Shenfield’s wedding (don’t worry it wasn’t anything I could pass along). So much so in fact, that I brought Dave along even though he wasn’t booked for the wedding coverage. He came as backup to help carry my gear and in case I couldn’t shoot to my normal quality. Fortunately he wasn’t needed for anything other than being a pack mule, but I of course took advantage of him being there when it came to veil tosses, multi-tasking shots, and those wonderful candid images. I mean, why wouldn’t I, he was there and he is so darn good at it!

Rockcliffe Pavilion Wedding: Maritza + Ismael

Do you remember near the start of the summer when the forecast was calling for rain literally every afternoon? As the day passed the forecast would push the rain further another hour again and again until eventually it would just push it to the next day’s forecast. As a photographer, this was incredibly annoying! Not only were couple’s unsure as to whether or not we would need to postpone their engagement or family session, but no one had any clue what wedding days were going to be in terms of the weather. And this of course meant I had to pack and carry around way more equipment than I really needed to. Very annoying.

Although to be honest, it was always a plus when that rain was pushed to the next day because it meant our couples got a beautiful, albeit very hot and humid, wedding day instead of one that needed towels and umbrellas. This was the case for Maritza + Ismael, who persevered through the muggy weather like champs and definitely made the most of not on the weather, but also the gorgeous location they had chosen!
