Ottawa Surprise Elopement: Allison + Matt

In getting this post together I had to go look up the most recent wedding featured here to remember how to title this one, etc., and you know what I realized? It has been 6 months since our last wedding!! SIX MONTHS!! That’s absolutely crazy to me! If I had to guess, I would have likely guessed 4 months at the most, but I obviously would have been wrong about that. But as much as this pandemic and the forced changes on weddings and events has affected me and other vendors, it has affected all of our couples too.

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.

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!

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! In fact, at one point in the day, the snowflakes were so dense and large that they looked completely fake (like they were made of foam and a wind machine)! Jenn wanted snow on her wedding day and boy-oh-boy did she get it! This wonderfully sweet couple definitely made the most of it during their portrait portion of the day! Getting completely drenched by the snow was definitely worth the shots we got out in that less than pleasant weather.⁠⠀

Behind the Scenes of 2019

2019-BTS-Behind-the-Scenes-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographySo one thing has been made abundantly clear over the last couple years — you guys love our Behind the Scenes (BTS) photos!
