{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!

{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?

{Chelsea & Scott} An engagement in Calabogie

I first met Chelsea when I photographed her brother Matt’s wedding in the fall of 2009. 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!

{Introducing Tavis Eirnan Hargreaves}

On August 26, Brian and I were absolutely blessed when our first son, Tavis Eirnan, arrived in the world. Almost as if to spite my easy pregnancy, he took almost 36 hours to arrive and although difficult, it was an incredible experience.

{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!

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!

{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.

{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!
