Temple’s Sugar Bush Winter Wedding: Alexis + Peter:

Temple's-Country-Wedding-Sugar-Bush-Winter-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWinter weddings can be a little tricky. Of course it is cold and we need to adjust how we work outside to make sure no one gets frostbite, but there is also that pesky sun. The shorter days and earlier sunsets mean we end up with less daylight for outdoor photos, and if you aren’t super keen on having a first look (which is always our first suggestion on how to work with the shorter days), it can be a little tricky to get everything captured in the best lighting. But worry not because there are always solutions and we can work pretty darn quickly when we need to and that is exactly what we did for Alexis + Peter’s winter wedding! Continue reading

Canadian Museum of Nature Winter Wedding: Jennifer + Steve

Museum-of-Nature-Winter-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyJenn + Steve’s wedding day started off with clear weather, then moved into freezing rain/slush, and ended up having a mini-blizzard right in the middle of it!

We loved each and every one of them and if you want a very quick recap of them you should definitely check out one of our earlier recap posts from 2019.

But this post isn’t about all of our weddings, it’s about the blog posts that got the most views over the course of the year.

Dear 2019, Thank You

Le-Belvedere-Wedding-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyIt’s that time again, time for all of the end-of-year blog posts. I always start mine off with this Thank You post as a way to recognize and show appreciation for all the amazing people who let us be a part of their wedding day and so much more over the last year.

I do tend to focus on our wedding days in this particular post, as listing out the individual newborns, family and other sessions from 2019 would take forever, but I do have something planned for a different recap post a little later on.
