Testimonial Highlight #7

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Wedding Stephanie Beach PhotographyJenn + Jon’s wedding fulfilled a dream I had from roughly eight years ago. A dream from before I even owned a professional camera and a dream I never thought would come true. It was a very surreal and special moment getting to photograph a bride and groom in a location I had thought of so many years ago and it was so awesome to have done this with people as sweet and kind as them.

Ornamental Gardens Wedding: Jenn + Jon

Ornamental Gardens Wedding: Jenn + Jon, Sneak Peek

A few years ago, okay maybe more than a few, my friend Chris switched majors from Engineering to English. When she did this she met a whole new group of people and made a ton of new friends. Now this isn’t at all atypical for Chris as she is very sociable and people are drawn to her amazing presence. But it did mean that I met a whole new group of people through her, and connected with a few of the very best. It was about this time, and through these means, that I met Jenn. I was instantly drawn to Jenn and her boyfriend Jon as they had very similar past times to Dave and I. They had Lego sets in their apartment and many different versions of Settlers of Catan and watched typically geeky shows just like us. Jen also likes to travel like I do and she is the type of person that you can really talk to. Over the years, Jenn and Jon have become dear friends of ours and I feel very lucky to have them our circle of friends.
