Jeff and Abby’s Orchardview Wedding Photos
A month ago today Jeff and Abby were married. So, I wanted to show some of Jeff and Abby’s Orchardview wedding photos. As any person from the Ottawa area knows, we had a tornado touch down on September 21st. That was the day before Jeff and Abby’s wedding. As a consequence of the tornado, many of the traffic lights weren’t working and there were power outages around town. Luckily, their hotel still had power. However, the church didn’t. So, their wedding ceremony took place without any indoor lights. Luckily, the church had a sky light right above the altar, so it was all good. This type of lighting situation gave a bit more of a dramatic feel to the photos. And thank goodness their reception venue had power as well. Yay!
We shot their formal portraits at the altar as per the request of the bride. I think it gave a more personal touch to their formal portraits. Afterwards, we headed down to Orchardview for the reception. With the traffic lights being out, there was quite a bit of slow traffic getting there. However, it was all good once we arrived at Orchardview. Orchardview is a pretty little wedding venue. They have a large pond on the property and it’s quite rustic. Despite it being a bit chilly, we were able to get some nice shots of Jeff and Abby, before heading inside for their reception.
I’ve seen the he/she game at past weddings that I’ve attended. However, I liked the personal touch of them using their own faces (instead of a their shoes or a he/she sign). And it made it cuter because they had silly faces on the face signs. I also wanted to mention that they brought their own backdrop for their photo booth. It’s the most beautiful photo booth backdrop I’ve ever seen. Just look at the pretty paper flowers. So beautiful and colourful. It made for pretty photo booth snapshots.

I must mention that it was awesome to work with Jeff and Abby again. This is the fourth time that we’ve worked together in the past year. You can check out their past portrait shoots with me:
Jeff and Abby, it’s been a total pleasure working with you so many times. You’re both great people. It’s also been great to see your little family grow with the birth of your daughter. I wish you and your family nothing but happiness. Take care. 🙂
