{Frances & Shaun} Vintage wedding at Port Hope Golf and Country Club

When Frances and Shaun began telling us about their wedding, we had never been to Port Hope.  To get ourselves prepared, we did some research on Penryn Mansion, built in 1859, which sits on the picturesque Port Hope Golf and Country Club, and were instantly excited!  We were even more pleased when we arrived in Port Hope, as everything is so much more beautiful than we had imagined.

When Brian and I met with Mary Anne and David for their initial consultation, we were delighted to hear they had planned an intimate, family oriented wedding in their new (old) home.  This past Saturday, our expectations were pleasantly (and overwhelmingly) exceeded!  Their beautifully decorated historic home was the perfect backdrop for their celebration–they have just recently purchased it so it was a great opportunity for many to congratulate them on all the new happenings in their lives.

We’ll be capturing their wedding memories in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica!

Cliff Mautner’s Dynamic Location Lighting Seminar

Among the many sessions we attended at the DWF Convention this month, one of our favorites was the Dynamic Location Lighting seminar taught by Cliff Mautner. For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Cliff has been a professional photographer for over 25 years, has photographed over 750 weddings, and is known as being able to create amazing images regardless of the lighting conditions.
He has been named one of the world’s top photographers, and prides himself on being able to produce photographs that are technically strong and has no need to edit them afterward to produce a beautiful product. We had the pleasure of learning from him, up close and personally…if you notice, we’re so excited about being small town Ottawa wedding photographers on stage with a big city photographer of his caliber, I’m staring at Cliff with a big goofy grin on my face!
