{Victoria & Tyler} A gorgeous waterfront wedding in Kingston, Ontario

As photographers, we love having different opportunities and challenges. Victoria & Tyler were married in the gorgeous Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, overlooking Kingston's waterfront. Historically we've had great opportunities capturing weddings and engagement sessions in Downtown Kingston, the Olympic Harbour is east of Kingston, past Queens University. Ivy and I took the opportunity to scout locations, and just a short 5 minute drive from the harbour, we found a great abandoned building to serve as the backdrop for their wedding portraits, along with the waterfront trail nearby! Victoria & Tyler are also very adventurous, and were up for creating these images that we absolutely love! Continue Reading..

{Melissa & Garth} An “end of the world” wedding at Montebello!

As I'm sure you all know, Dec 21st 2012 was supposed to be the end of the world as some people interpreted the Mayan Calendar. Well, it was quite a fitting day to celebrate Melissa & Garth's love for each other. Twenty three years ago, the two were high school sweethearts, so on the end of the world, or as it was more commonly referred to at their wedding, the beginning of a new age, Melissa & Garth were married in a wonderful ceremony at Chateau Montebello. Melissa filled the wedding full of unique touches, such as a circular aisle, so that they could walk past each and every guest, the custom hand made glass ornaments that formed a centrepiece, and then became favours for the guests. There was no seating plan, because as Melissa and Garth stated, "We are all family, so there's no seating plan". Guests were able to sit where they wished, mingle with who they wanted, and meet new friends at their leisure. The atmosphere was relaxed, well, until the dancing started! Continue Reading..

{Chelsea & Scott} A Celtic wedding at Tudor Hall

{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! Continue Reading..
{Stephanie & Jason} A destination wedding in Ottawa!

{Stephanie & Jason} A destination wedding in Ottawa!

Last weekend it was a pleasure to photograph Stephanie & Jason's wedding. When most of us hear destination wedding, we think of the sunny south. Stephanie & Jason actually live in Barbados, and since her parents and family members live in Ottawa, they decided to hold their wedding here! After a very long distance phone call, I got to know the couple, and immediately knew their wedding was going to be one of the most relaxed weddings I've ever photographed, which made the 5am wake up call for their 9 am ceremony completely worth while! Enjoy the photos! Continue Reading..

{Roberta & Jeff} A rainy engagement session

We scheduled a nice, relaxing engagement session with Roberta & Jeff in preparation of their wedding next May. There was rain in the forecast, but only 30% chance of showers starting at 10pm, no need to reschedule. Well, turns out the weather forecast wasn't 100% accurate and we got caught in a downpour! Roberta & Jeff were amazing however and we made the best of it! If it rains during the engagement session, does that mean it won't rain on their wedding day? Continue Reading..

Their family was amazing, and both of them are so outgoing, I know I'm going to have a blast at Chelsea & Scott's wedding this coming summer! Chelsea and Scott chose his family's hunt camp up near Calabogie for their session since that's where he proposed. We had a great day with lots of sun back in October! Continue Reading..

{Christine & Evan} A sexy sunset engagement session

Ivanette and I have known Christine and Evan for a couple years now. Evan used to work with my younger brother, and over the years we've gotten to know Christine and Evan. We were excited for them when Evan finally proposed, and even more excited to be photographing their wedding next year in Carleton Place. We spent a Sunday afternoon at Evan's cottage capturing their engagement session surrounded by the fall leaves. Evan was thrilled when I suggested we incorporate his prized Mustang into their session!   Continue Reading..

{Rachel & Eric} An intimate “elopement”

Photos by Brian Blog post by Ivanette I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Rachel when I started working at a new job in January, and getting to know her has been one of the highlights of my time there so far. Over time, we got to talking about our lives outside the office, and she learned that Brian is a photographer, and I learned that she was set to marry the love of her life, Eric, this fall. The rest, they say, is history! When you see Rachel and Eric together, it's truly captivating...they laugh together constantly, and when they look at one another, are almost consumed by the other. The energy they have together is wonderous and infectious, and you really can't help but be happy in their presence. Continue Reading..
