{Miss R} Bridal Boudoir

We’ve had to keep these photos under wraps for a few months now, and are excited to be able to finally share them! Miss R came to our studio a few months ago for a bridal boudoir session. Since her session was a surprise for her (now) husband, we couldn’t share them online. Miss R had a great time during her session, and I hope her husband enjoys her images as much as she does!

{Karen & Agostino} The Engagement

Ivanette worked with Karen a few years ago at her first job after moving to Ottawa for University. Over the years they had lost contact, but once Karen saw Ivanette at our booth in the Ottawa Wedding show, it was quite the reunion! Karen and Agostino are an amazing couple, full of energy and laughter! We’re looking forward to photographing their wedding this November!

{Kristen & Jason} Get Married at the Mayfair Theater, reception at the Glebe Community Center

Ivanette and I had the pleasure of meeting with Kristen & Jason last September and chatted about their very unique wedding. If you’re a regular follower of the blog, you’ll know that we like to keep things interesting by photographing unique, yet personalized weddings. It’s not always about who can get the most lavish venue, the most expensive shoes, or a couture gown. The best weddings are full of emotion, fun, and personal touches. Kristen and Jason decided early on to go for a Carnival theme for their wedding. The ceremony was held at the historic Mayfair Theater in the Glebe, with a reception at the Glebe Community Center. For their formal photos we decided that one of Ottawa’s legal graffiti walls would fit perfectly.

{Fanny & Steve} A personalized wedding at Lago (Ottawa)

It’s been almost a year since we met Fanny and Steve at our studio, and chatted about their wedding. It seemed like forever until their wedding date arrived this past Saturday. Even though the weather network was threatening thunderstorms right after their ceremony, it turned out to be a great day! We had a blast photographing their wedding at Lago Bar Grill View.

{Rachel & Eric} Engagement session at Ottawa’s Arboretum

Ivanette had the pleasure of meeting with Rachel when she started her new job last fall. It was a few months later when Rachel and Eric came in to discuss their wedding plans that I got to meet both of them. Rachel and Eric’s relationship first started when they would meet each other for lunch under a large willow tree at their University. The Arboretum with it’s large willows seemed like the perfect fit for their engagement photos. You can’t help but have a good time with these two! We just love it when people are so madly in love! We are looking forward to covering their small, intimate wedding later this year.

{Erin & Chris} A wedding at St. Peter’s in Pakenham

You can’t help but notice Erin’s outgoing, bubbly personality! Erin and Chris were a pleasure to work with. We had previously had a blast photographing their engagement session, and had been looking forward to their wedding this past Saturday. Erin and Chris chose St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Pakenham, which is one of the 7 wonders of Lanark County. In the morning, we learnt that Erin’s Grandfather had a hand in helping build the 5 span bridge in Pakenham (yet another of the 7 wonders of Lanark County), so a quick stop for some photos, then it was off to Burnstown for some photos on the farm. We had a blast at the reception with the smoked beef and chicken. A big thanks to Erin, Chris and both their parents for their wonderful hospitality!

{Baby Ella} is almost 1

Last Friday we had the pleasure of a visit from Jamie and Matt, and their daughter Ella. Ella will turn 1 this September, and Jamie wanted some family photos with all 3 smiling. We actually photographed Jamie and Matt’s wedding back in 2009, which you may remember had a “little” bit of a firefighter theme. Of course we had to continue on the tradition!

{Kelly & Derek} Downtown Ottawa wedding, Blessed Sacrament & the National Arts Center

You may remember Kelly & Derek from their engagement session a few months ago at Hogs Back Falls. We had a great time photographing their engagement session, as they are so relaxed, genuine and just plain ol’ nice! After photographing their wedding at Blessed Sacrament church in the Glebe, and their reception at the NAC it was apparent that their families were just as witty, relaxed, and nice as they are!
