Britannia Yacht Club Wedding: Sarah + Kelvin

Britannia-Yacht-Club-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-sunsetWhen I captured Sarah + Kelvin’s engagement session last winter I learned just how amazing they are in front of the camera, and although I didn’t really forgot that fact, I was very quickly reminded of just how fantastic they really are as soon as we had the two of them together again and in front of our lenses! Seriously guys, they are complete naturals! Such genuine emotion and adorableness I honestly just couldn’t get enough of it! I could have shot these two all day long! And that feeling was only compounded when I met the rest of their wedding party as these guys were just a ton of fun and made every second of this already wonderful day that much more awesome!

Jabulani Vineyard Wedding: Brittany + Mike

Jabulani-Vineyard-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyCan we talk about speeches for just a second? So there have been many times during my career as a wedding photographer where I have felt the pains of a long, drawn-out, boring speech. Or seen a fellow shy person struggle through a speech they really didn’t feel comfortable making. But the speeches at Brittany + Mike’s wedding were none of these things and instead they were utterly brilliant and so ridiculously funny! Every venue has house rules that get read by the MC before the night really begins, and although I have heard some entertaining versions before, never before have they actually been side-splitting funny!

Fairmont Chateau Laurier Wedding: Melissa + Rami

Ottawa-Notre-Dame-Chateau-Laurier-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI have been putting off writing this blog post for so long now, but not because I don’t like writing or any of those sorts of reasons, no, I have been putting it off because there were so many amazing things that happened during Melissa + Rami’s wedding that I honestly don’t even know where to start! So, since these two truly wonderful people will be getting their photos a little later today, I figured I should probably get this post done so I just started at the beginning (a very good place to start).

St. Patrick’s Cathedral + All Saint’s Event Space Wedding: Rowan + Andrew

St-Patricks-Cathedral-All-Saints-Event-Space-Ottawa-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI don’t even know where to start with this wedding day – there were just so many amazing moments and surprises throughout the entire wedding that I am having a hard time writing a cohesive blog post that includes everything I want it to. But then I remembered that I am not a writer but rather a photographer and what you are probably really here for are the pictures – and Rowan + Andrew’s wedding day definitely has loads of those to share with you all!!

Hog’s Back Park Engagement Session: Samantha + Damjan

Hog's-Back-Park-Engagement-Session-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI like to think that everyone has a spot (or maybe a couple) in their town/city that is special to them. Maybe a memorable event happened their or just it is a place where they can go and clear their head. My list of places has changed and grown over the years, but Hog’s Back Park will always be close to my heart. And I know it will be special for Samantha + Damjan too as their relationship grew here as they trained for marathons and just generally got to know one another better running through the park’s paths.
