I’m happy to say that today Ottawa Wedding Magazine published styled wedding shoot that I shot in June.  Ottawa Wedding Magazine graciously accepted them to publish these wedding photos.  This styled wedding shoot was a combination of hard work and effort from several amazing wedding vendors in Ottawa, ON and Gatineau, QC.  We all came together to create the vision.  First of all, I’m happy that everything turned out so beautifully (including the weather).  Finally, I’m so proud that these photos have been featured on an amazing local wedding website, such as Ottawa Wedding Magazine.



Without further ado, please check out our featured Ottawa Wedding Magazine photo shoot.

This wedding shoot was made possible by the following wedding vendors in Ottawa and Gatineau:

I’m a photographer located in L’Ange Gardien, QC and I shoot Gatineau children’s photography.  I love shooting outdoor portraits–especially in beautiful fields.  The Queen Ann’s lace will be in bloom in the next few weeks.  Thus, I wanted to share a few photos from a photo shoot that I took of my daughter and husband last summer.  My daughter was a little over 2.5 years old and she really doesn’t like to have her photos taken these days, so this was the first photo shoot that I had done of her in months, let alone family photos.  I’m happy with the results, so I wanted to share a few.

Thanks for taking the time to view my work.  I would love to create some photographic heirlooms for you and your family to cherish for a lifetime.  I can also shoot your portraits in this same GORGEOUS field of Queen Ann’s lace.  Contact me today to book your family photo shoot.  🙂

If you don’t need family photos taken, I also shoot Ottawa wedding photography as well as cake smash photos and maternity photography.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Update:  This photo session was featured on Life + Lens Photography Blog.

10 Ways to Save Money on Your Dream Wedding

10 Ways to Save Money on Your Dream Wedding


You’ve dreamed of your wedding day for years and now it’s fast approaching. You probably didn’t dream that it could cost you an arm and a leg to pay for. To help you out, I’ve come up with 10 ways to save money on your dream wedding:

  1. Guest List: Keep your guest list as short as possible.  Just invite the people who have special meaning in your lives. If you’re paying for your own wedding and your parents insist on inviting extra people, tell your parents they’ll need to pay for those people themselves so that you can stay on budget. Remember, the smaller your guest list is, the less you’ll pay for food, liquor, wedding cake and centre pieces.
  2. Wedding Invitations:  There’s plenty of reasonably priced online companies.  Check out:  Wedding Paper Divas, Minted, Magnet Street and Basic Invite. Believe it or not Vistaprint also has some nice wedding invitations.
  3. Wedding Dress:  Two words: bridal show. Bridal stores will either have a show special for their gowns, while some will bring floor samples or previous season’s inventory to sell for a discounted price.   You can get a wedding dress at a bridal show for $200-$400.  Check out: Wedding Palace Bridal Show,  Capital Wedding Show and The Ottawa wedding show.
  4. Something borrowed:  You know the saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed…” Borrow something in order to stay within wedding tradition and save money. You can borrow jewellery, shoes, a purse or wedding veil.
  5. Wedding Photography:  As Benjamin Franklin said, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten.” Don’t waste your money on a cheap, poor quality photographer, or worse, a friend doing it for free.  Instead, hire a good photographer for less coverage (ie. Instead of having 10 hours of coverage, get six hours instead, which will still cover some of getting ready, ceremony, formal portraits and the beginning of the reception).  That way you still end up with beautiful photos of your wedding day.  Please also have a realistic budget for photos. If your budget is $800 for 8-12 hours, then photos from an $800 photographer are probably going to look like you cheaped out.
  6. Flowers: Please don’t make your own bouquet, because the flowers will probably wilt and look bad in the photos. Use an actual florist, but be sparing with the amount of flowers. Choose flowers that will be in season as they will be less expensive. For floral centre pieces, keep them small and simple. Warning: some brides try to save money by buying cheap fake flowers. Guess what, they’ll look cheap in the photos. Unless you’re going to invest money in high quality fake flowers, please don’t go to the dollar store and buy fake flowers.
  7. Cupcakes vs wedding cake: Venues can’t charge a cake cutting fee for cupcakes. However, if you want a wedding cake, have a small, simple decorated cake for show and then a slab cake with the same icing in the kitchen for guests. When the slab cake is cut up, no one will be the wiser.
  8. Liquor: Cut out mixed drinks at your open bar and just offer wine, beer and pop. You can also skip the bar entirely and have a bottle of wine at each table and a soda fountain for everyone. Another option is to use a venue that lets you bring your own alcohol.
  9. Decorations: If you’re artsy fartsy, go the DIY route. Pinterest has tonnes of decoration ideas. If you’re getting married outside or in a beautiful setting, you won’t need many decorations. If you absolutely must have flowers at your venues, buy wholesale.  Note: Wild flowers cost nothing and will give a rustic feel.
  10. Transportation: Do you really need a limousine or horse drawn carriage? Will it make you arrive faster than a regular car? Nope? Ok, move on. You just saved yourself some cash by not renting a ride for the day. Have a friend or family member drive you to the venues.

I must also mention that once you’ve come up with your wedding budget, you need to plan all of your wedding details accordingly.  What I mean is, don’t expect a $50,000 wedding on a $10,000 budget. It just can’t happen, unless you plan on doing and making everything yourself (not to mention not having the reception at an indoor venue). Too many couples want it all, but are unwilling (or can’t) pay for it all, so they decide to try to nickel and dime every single wedding vendor involved. Please don’t be one of those couples. Be reasonable with your demands. All wedding vendors need to get paid for their time.  And most of them are putting way more time into what you see on the wedding day. No lie.  🙂

If you’re looking for a professional wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you. Contact me today to book a consultation.

Baby Cake Smash Photos in L’Ange Gardien QC Copy

Baby Cake Smash Photos in L’Ange Gardien QC

I’m so proud to announce that this very photo shoot has just been featured on:  Beauty and Lifestyle Mommy blog.  It’s titled, “Pretty in Pink.”  Check it out!

A few months ago I took some baby cake smash photos in L’Ange Gardien QC of this little cutie.  Her mother made the most beautiful cake especially for the event.

The funny thing was that this girl was not interested in eating the cake.  She was way more interested in smashing it to pieces and flinging it around the room.  It was hilarious.  I’ve never seen a baby throw around cake like she did.  Usually, they either cry and don’t want to touch the smash cake or they are happy to just taste the icing and feel the gooey texture.

I absolutely love shooting baby cake smash photos.  If your baby is turning one or two, book your baby cake smash with me.  Contact me and we can set up a day for your baby’s smash the cake photo session.  I shoot cake smash photo sessions in my home in L’Ange Gardien, QC (just 25 minutes east of downtown Ottawa).  I’d love to hear from you.  I also shoot newborn baby photos, maternity and family photos.  You can view more of my Gatineau and Ottawa portrait seen on blmommy_blog_font




Look at the smirk of triumph at the end. Hee! Hee!

I’m a Gatineau and Ottawa family photographer who loves shooting outdoors.  This past fall I shot some portraits of this cute little family.  They even brought their dog along for their family photos.

I shoot all family photos outdoors, so spring, summer and fall are perfect times to have your family photos taken and even the winter.  Depending on what type of backdrop you’re looking for, each season has it’s own unique beauty.  I am also happy to recommend nice locations to do your photo shoot.  Contact me today to book your family photo session.  I also shoot maternity photography, newborn, baby and cake smash photos.  For newly engaged couples, I also shoot engagement and wedding photography in Ottawa and Gatineau area.

You can check out more of my family photo work to see if you like my style:
