Amberwood Lounge Wedding Photos

Amberwood Lounge Wedding Photos

Today marks the first wedding anniversary of Chris and Rahel. So, I decided to repost some of their Amberwood Lounge wedding photos. It was a lovely day. A little bit windy, but not hot or humid. It rained in the morning, but we were good to go for the afternoon. It was quite nice. Anyway, I hope that you like these photos. I personally liked their Harry Potter themed decorations.

Harry Potter Theme

Rahel is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. So, why not have a Harry Potter themed wedding. Some of the Harry Potter elements included were: a Platform 9¾ photobooth area, centre pieces, flying keys wedding favours, Harry Potter paper flowers in the bouquets, potions at the bar, mirror of Erised seating chart, directional sign post, guestbook table and marauder map footprints. There was also the owl, Hedwig (at least I think so). And my goodnes, the gorgeous cake had some golden snitches on it. It was pretty cool to see so many elements throughout. And from what I hear they had a Harry Potter themed potion drink from the bar. How cool is that?

The Food

I’ve eaten a lot of wedding food over the years, but I gotta say that Amberwood Lounge’s food is beyond wonderful. I’m reminiscing about the pear salad with candied nuts, goat cheese, butter lettuce and champagne drizzle. Yaaasss! After the tasty salad, we had roasted heirloom tomato bisque with basil relish and grilled cheese. For an extree I had the chicken dinner and it had this amazing sweet chili sauce on it. It was really tasty. (I recommend to go eat there if you’re looking for a restaurant in the west end.)

The Dancing

This was my first time shooting a wedding with Ethiopian dancing in it. Pretty much everyone got up on the dance floor to try out traditional Ethiopian/Eritrean dancing. It was pretty cool to see. At one point Chris and Rahel danced under a canopy made from a guest’s shawl. It was so beautiful to watch. It’s always nice when people include cultural elements into their weddings. It makes it that much more unique.

Summer Family Photos at the Ottawa Arboretum

Summer Family Photos at the Ottawa Arboretum

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to take some end of summer family photos at the Ottawa arboretum. I`ve worked with this family before, for their fall maternity photo session and lifestyle newborn photo sessions. It was nice to see how big their little girl has gotten since I last saw her.

Since she didn’t get a nap that day, she wasn’t the keenest on getting her photos taken. She would rather have just walked around and explored instead. However, I was able to get some cute smiles from her, despite the fact that she wanted to have none of it during the photo session.

Thank goodness for digital photography and photoshop. This session I needed to take a lot more photos than I usually do. I also needed to do some head swapping on some of the photos. All in all, I’m glad how this photo session ended up turning out. I’m happy that I was able to deliver quite a few beautiful photos for this cute little family. At least they’ll have a lot of great pictures to choose from to make prints for their home.

Orange Art Gallery Wedding Photos

Ruby and Lauren’s Orange Art Gallery Wedding Photos

Today marks the first anniversary for Ruby and Lauren. In honour of their special day, I decided to repost their Orange Art Gallery wedding photos.

Despite it pouring outside, thus pushing them into the gallery to have their wedding ceremony, everything turned out beautifully.

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.

Blended Family Fall Photos

Blended Family Fall Photos

Last fall I shot these blended family fall photos in Gatineau. Fall is actually my favourite time of year because it’s so beautiful. (Spring is a close 2nd favourite!) I just wish that it lasted longer. The leaves are just so pretty when they turn red, orange and yellow.

They chose good colours for fall photos. The blues showed up well against the bright coloured leaves.

Vincent Massey Park Family Photos

Vincent Massey Park Family Photos

Last Thanksgiving weekend I shot these Vincent Massey Park family photos session. This family was so adorable. The kids wanted to play and have fun, so we had to work around their whims. However, I was able to get lots of fabulous shots of all of them, including the lovely mom and dad.

The kids were adorable. Such cute little faces. I was happy to capture some smiles from them. I was even more happy to capture some really beautiful family portraits for this adorable little family. I hope that you enjoy viewing their family photos.

Family Photos in Aylmer

Family Photos in Aylmer

A few weeks ago I shot some family photos in Aylmer. This great family lives on a beautiful property on the outskirts of the Gatineau hills. It’s so pretty. I absolutely love, love, love rustic spots to shoot in, so I was in my element with this shoot.

I was thrilled to find out that they have chickens, ducks and horses. As soon as heard that they had animals, my brain started thinking of ways I could incorporate the animals into some of their pictures. It really doesn’t get much better than rustic scenery and farm animals to make me happy with a photo session.

These guys were so awesome to work with. First, they all looked great in their fabulous outfits. (Clearly, mama bear has loads of style.) Secondly, they all followed direction well. And thirdly, they’re pretty photogenic. All of these things worked together to help me capture great photos of them.

One thing was kinda humourous, was trying to take photos with the pony. He only cared about eating grass, so it was a bit of a gong show trying to get some photos of him. Once he was in the roundpen (I had to google what it was called), he was fairly good to work with.

All in all, I really enjoyed working with this little family. They were awesome. The girls were awesome. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to capture portraits of all of you. 🙂
