Strathmere Inn Wedding: Diana + John, Sneak Peek

Strathmere-Inn-Ottawa-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI cannot even begin to properly explain just how perfect Diana + John’s wedding day was as the start of our 2018 season. From being at one of our favourite venues to all the beautiful and personal details so perfectly infused throughout everything, it was truly lovely. But as usual, what that made this wedding day so great weren’t the actual things, but rather the people. Not only are Diana + John so incredibly nice (and funny to boot), but they are absolutely one of the sweetest couples we have had the pleasure and honour of working with over the years and they surrounded themselves with family and friends who are equally as wonderful!

Evermore Wedding: Ellen + Graham, Sneak Peek

Evermore-Wedding-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-bride-groom-portrait-wheat-sunsetThere are definitely venues and locations around the city that are on to shoot list and pretty much ever since it opened a few years ago, Evermore has been a venue on that list. So when Ellen + Graham first reached out to me about photographing their wedding there, I was super excited to get a chance to capture a day at this stunning venue. But then I got to meet and chat with this wonderful couple, and my excitement quickly changed from being venue-based to being all about getting to work with these two amazing people as they started their married life together.

Lago Bar & Grill Restaurant Wedding: Jennifer + Kyle, Sneak Peek

Ottawa-Lago-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-ring-invitationSo any bride planning their big day knows that they need to have a Plan B in case of rain (assuming you are doing at least some portion of your day outdoors), and Jenn was prepared with that Plan B. She had discussed it with her wedding planner and us as her photographers. Her ceremony was indoors so no worries there, and we had lots of umbrellas and towels/sheets (to stand on and keep her dress dry) at the ready should the showers come during their first look and portraits. But what do you do when it hails – in August?

Rainbow Coloured Wedding at Brockville Convention Centre: Juliet + Blake, Sneak Peek

Rainbow-Coloured-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-engagement-ring-bride-bouquetColour can have a pretty big impact on your wedding day. Your chosen colour is typically part of your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, stationary, and general decor. But picking a colour (or a couple colours) to match your personalities and represent your day can be difficult, especially if you are one of those people who doesn’t have one specific colour as your favourite. But picking one colour, or even two, was not what Juliet + Blake had in mind for their day, and I am oh so glad they went in such a vibrant direction!

Strathmere Lodge Wedding: Angela + Paul, Sneak Peek

Strathmere-Inn-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-bouquet-stone-blossomWhen I first meet with our couples it is normally pretty easy for me to get a feel for how their wedding day is going to go. And by that I mean, is it going to be a super relaxed and chill kind of day, a hilariously fun kind of day, a well-oiled machine kind of day, etc., etc., etc. (or some combination thereof). So when I sat down with Angela + Paul all those months ago, I knew right away what kind of day their wedding was going to be, and that was an absolutely incredible kind of day!!
