{Tavis’ 1st Birthday} A Cookie Monster Birthday Party

Wow, a year sure goes by quickly! A year ago I was photographing back to back weddings, our busiest season, when Mr. Tavis decided he would enter this world. The year has gone by so quickly! Watching him progress from fitting in my forearm to the walking, smiling, laughing little boy he is today. He’s my little work buddy, and keeps the day interesting! We were glad to have all the great family and friends join us to celebrate his first birthday! After a hard day’s work, seeing Ivanette’s face light up as he toddles over to the door squeeling and smiling because mommy’s home is the best part of the day!

Also, a big thanks to my brother Mark for picking up the camera for part of the day!

{Shannon & Bob} A country wedding at Kemptville College

I first met Shannon and Bobby at the Ottawa Wedding Show, and they later came to the studio to chat about their wedding. They are very down to earth, easy going, and care the world about each other. Their wedding was one of the most relaxed days we’ve ever had!

Enjoy the photos!

{Chelsea & Scott} A Celtic wedding at Tudor Hall

I first met Chelsea and her amazing family at her brother’s wedding back in the fall of 2009. Ivy didn’t have the chance to join me as she was in Vancouver preparing to work at the Olympics the following year. I can tell you however that she was jealous of not being able to photograph all of the amazing details! When Chelsea messaged me on facebook to let us know that Scott had proposed, and she wanted us to photograph their wedding, we were both excited! Turns out Scott’s family is just as nice and caring! From the details that Chelsea chose, the Champagne Highland Dancers acting as ushers, and then having three performances during the reception, and the absolute abundance of emotion throughout the day. The most memorable moment to me was Chelsea’s reaction as Scott stepped out to reveal he was wearing a kilt. Chelsea’s Scottish roots are important to herself and her family. Scott’s effort into bringing in a kilt bearing her family’s Tartan was a sign of just how much he loves Chelsea!
