Orange Art Gallery Wedding

Ruby and Lauren’s Orange Art Gallery Wedding

This past September I shot Ruby and Lauren’s Orange Art Gallery wedding photos. The weather was pretty ‘iffy’ as it was calling for a 70% chance of rain. That’s not the kind of thing you want to hear on a wedding day–especially when the couple has planned for an outdoor wedding.

vista-print-wedding-invitations

It rained in the morning, but we were blessed that the rains held off for most of the day, so that we could shoot their first look and all portraits outside. The ceremony was initially supposed to be outside, but at the last minute had to be brough indoors due to the threat of rain. Good thing the venue made the call to bring it inside, because during the ceremony it poured rain. But in an art gallery with beautiful art, it made for a beautiful backdrop.

Ruby and Lauren’s vows were of their own writing. One thing that struck me during Ruby’s vows (and made me tear up!) was when he said to Lauren that it’s so easy to love her. Gah! So beautiful. It’s hearing those kinds of things that makes me happy to be a part of a couple’s wedding day.

Boris: the Star Attraction

One thing I must mention is that their dog, Boris, was present for all of the festivities, including their first look. And man, he was a star! That’s no exaggeration either. Lauren and Ruby had lots of people congratulating them, but Boris, man he had tonnes of people staring at him in awe like he was the king of the castle. People wanted to pet him; many wanted to take photos of him and with him. I couldn’t believe it. But, I guess when you’re a 150lb beast of a dog, people will take notice of you.

I must mention the funniest thing of the night was when two of their friends came out wearing sumo wrestler outfits and danced to, “Kung-Fu Fighting.” It. Was. Hilarious. So many good photos from that dance. Thanks for the laughs ladies.

Ottawa Fall Pregnancy Photos

Ottawa Fall Pregnancy Photos

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I shot some Ottawa fall pregnancy photos at the Arboretum. Initially, the skies were sunny, but soon as I waited for these two to arrive the dark clouds rolled in. Through a miscommunication (and my cell phone dying at the MOST unopportune time), we were 30 minutes late in beginning this photo shoot. Thankfully, I woman at the arboretum was kind enough to text message my clients for me and then we were able to meet. (Note to self: always, always, always make sure my cell is charged before I leave for a photo shoot.)

Just as we began to shoot, it began to rain a bit. At least I had brought a couple of umbrellas with me. But thankfully the rains soon stopped and we were free to finish the rest of the shoot.

I’m happy that we were able to get a lot of nice portraits in such a small amount of time. The rain had made the colours pop more and I was able to put my camera settings to make it look brighter than it actually was without having to use a flash. Thank you technology!

Ottawa Area Maternity Photo

Ottawa Area Maternity Photo Session

Two weeks ago I shot an Ottawa area maternity photo session with these two lovely people. It was a beautiful sunny day. A lot of the leaves had already fallen, but we found some pretty spots to use.

Fall is such a beautiful time of year to have photos taken. The colours are always to pretty–even if the leaves have fallen on the ground it makes for a lovely shot. It was the same for today. Pretty orange leaves all over the ground. Nice green pines in the background, dotted with a few orange leaves for good measure.

Fall Family Portraits in Gatineau

Fall Family Portraits in Gatineau

Just before the Thanksgiving weekend, I shot some fall family portraits in Gatineau. There are some really pretty spots on the Gatineau side to see the beautiful fall foliage. I have a few spots that I like to shoot at during the fall. This is one of my favourite spots in Gatineau.

This little family were great to work with. Although their little girl was a bit of a tough cookie to crack a smile, I was finally able to get some nice smiles from her. It just took getting mommy and daddy to get her to smile and sonetimes me having to act foolishly. But we got those smiles, which made it all worth the goofy efforts.

She loved playing in the leaves. It was cute to see her so happy sitting and playing in the leaves. Oh, to be a small child again. Not a care in the world, except to eat, sleep and play. But, I digress. I hope you enjoy these autumn family pictures.

If you’d like to do a fall photo session, please make sure to book a spot well before the leaves actually begin to change colours. I had quite a few people requesting to book a fall days literally days before the leaves were in their fall prime. And some even contacting me after the fall prime, but contacting me Friday afternoon to book a Saturday session. Shooting on the weekend in the fall is prime time for photographer, so to make sure you can book a session, book with a photographer by early to mid-September at the latest. If not, you may be disappointed to not book anything.

Barrhaven Lifestyle Newborn Photo

Barrhaven Lifestyle Newborn Photo Session

Two weeks ago, I shot a Barrhaven lifestyle newborn photo session of this beatiful family. I’ve worked with them before, so it was fantastic to work with them again. I must mention that mama is a detail person, so it was awesome to see the nursery decorations. Check out the wildlife details. And the little outfits for the kiddies.

Their little prince was pretty good during the shoot. He was calm for most of it. He tried to fight against getting swaddled up, but then he snuggled in and went to sleep, which made it easier to pose him in various positions.

One thing I like about shooting lifestyle newborn photo sessions is that it gives the family the opportunity to infuse their personalities and intersts into the shoot. Hence, this little man was shot with some soccer and baseball paraphanalia. Check out the first shot!

Not to be outdone, big sis posed for some beautiful portraits. She wore the dress that her mama wanted her to wear at the maternity session. Yay for this win! And she was more open to letting me take photos of her. In fact, she was all over having her photos taken. She was also very interested in my photography equipment and what I was shooting in the nursery.

It was a such a pleasure to work with this family again and to see them grow from a family of three to a family of four. Congratulations. I hope for nothing but the best best for all of you. 🙂

Old Quarry Trail Engagement Photos

Kanata Engagement Photos

About a week and a half ago I shot some old quarry trail engagement photos in Kanata of these two. Since I live in the east end, I normally don’t travel that far west for an engagement session. However, since Ryan proposed to Courtney on old quarry trail, they wanted to do their session there. How could I say no? I’m glad I said yes because it was a pretty location and the photos turned out really well. 🙂

unique-engagement-photo-themes-hunting

There’s a story with this turkey. Courtney is an avid bird watcher, so Ryan planned a rather elaborate plan to pop the question to her. He bought a turkey decoy and had his friends place it on the Old quarry trail in Kanata. They then texted him to tell him exactly where it was. Ryan took Courtney on a walk with the ruse that they could go bird watching. However, when they arrived to where the decoy was, this turkey was sitting on the trail with the question written on his tail asking for Courtney to marry Ryan. This has got to be one of the most unique wedding proposals that I’ve ever had any of my clients do. Hilarious and brilliant at the same time.

Ottawa Horticulture Building Wedding

Curtis & Nicole’s Ottawa Horticulture Building Wedding

I’m pleased to showcase Curtis and Nicole’s Ottawa Horticulture building wedding photos. I’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding at the Horticulture building for a number of years now. So, I was happy when Nicole and Curtis told me that they were getting married there. Lansdowne has such a pretty and unique looking building. And it’s totally up my alley as far as style.

Their wedding day had perfect weather. Thank goodness it wasn’t humid or stifling hot. It was sunny with some clouds and the temperature was about 23°C. As a result, we had nice lighting for their formal portraits at a beautiful nearby park, before we headed over to Lansdowne for the ceremony and reception. Their ‘first look’ was a bit different, compared to other first looks that I’ve shot. Since Curtis was running late, we had Nicole wait for him to come up behind her and then have her turn around to see him. It was non-conventional as far as first looks go. But, I think it turned out well.

Beautiful Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was quite pretty. The horticultural building was decorated quite beautifully with white chiffon draping and a golden moon gate arch. The reception area was very beautiful as well with the dark linens mixed with gold accents. Sage Designs did an excellent job with the wedding decorations.
