Event Photography at the Chateau Laurier: Royal-Tea for the Royal Wedding

Make-A-Wish-Royal-Tea-Royal-Wedding-Chateau-Laurier-Event-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyIt was 3am when our alarm clock went off that morning and Dave and I crawled out of bed to start getting ready. After very slowly packing the car, we headed out to Zoe’s Lounge at Chateau Laurier (at least there was practically no traffic!) to join the amazing Make-A-Wish team as they hosted their Royal-Tea event. Complete with scones, clotted cream and of course tea, we joined the guests in watching the Royal Wedding of Harry and Megan.

Happy Anniversary Sarah + Anders

Ottawa Backyard Wedding Stephanie Beach PhotographyIt seems weird to say that an entire year has passed since¬†we were lucky enough to photograph Sarah + Anders’ wedding day.

I love their food, culture, television, sense of humour, history, landscapes, and of course, I love their accent. I have made two big trips to England, and have loved every single second of both of those trips and I would go back in a heartbeat if I was given the chance. So when I met Sarah + Anders last year to chat about their upcoming wedding, I was super pumped to find out they were planning on incorporating aspects from her home country into their big day. One of those details was actually Sarah’s dress which was from a shop in England she used to walk past most weekends when she was younger.

Colour vs. Black & White

Bath UK Stephanie Beach PhotographyWhen I give my clients their images, they receive all photos in both colour and black & white (they also get them in both high and low resolution, but that isn’t really important for this post). I can often be heard saying that not every photo works in black & white, but this way my clients have the option and can choose for themselves which setting they prefer for each image.
