I had the pleasure of photographing Nadine and Dave married this weekend at Sidedoor and Restaurant 18 in Ottawa’s Byward Market; two of Ottawa’s finest restaurants and wedding venues. Despite the threat of rain, everyone stayed dry except the photographer who shot the first dance through the front windows of Restaurant 18 during the downpour. Anything for the photo, right?

Congratulations to Nadine and Dave; thanks for the steak!

April and Mackenzie are the kind of people that, if you hadn’t met the before, you wish you had known for a long time. They invited me to photograph their beach wedding in Sault Saint Marie, on the North Channel between Lakes Huron and Superior, and I was more than happy to do so. It was my first time in the Soo and I hope it is not too long before my next visit. April is the kind that seems genuinely excited to see every person she meets and has a smile that is wildly contagious. Mackenzie is the kind of guy that will invite a relative stranger to break into his garage and borrow his clubs for an evening of mediocre golf. Together they have a group of family and friends that would be most people would be lucky to have, but it is those family and friends are the lucky ones.

Congratulations Ape and Mac!

I was first introduced to Kristen by a mutual friend at the Speaker of the House of Commons barbeque at Kingsmere Estate in Chelsea, Quebec. Once she filled me in on some of the details, like her fiancé Cory wearing his dress reds and the wedding happening at a greenhouse in Newmarket, I was immediately interested. The day was amazing!

Wedding of Dina and Elan at Countryview Manor and Orchardview Conference and Wedding Centre

I had a great time photographing Dina and Elan’s wedding at Orchard View Wedding and Conference Centre in Manotick, south of Ottawa, last weekend. The pair got ready and had their first-look at Country View Manor, a bed and breakfast right beside the venue. Thankfully the weather cooperated when we needed it to and it got people moving a little faster when the rain finally fell. This was my first time shooting a wedding at Orchard View and I would be happy to work their again soon.

 

Congratulations Dina and Elan!

This past weekend, Amanda and Brandon held their Dr. Who themed wedding at Saunders Farm in Munster near Ottawa. It was a hot day, but there was plenty of Pepsi and Dr. Pepper around to help their guests stay cool (the couples origin story involves soda). The sci-fi enthusiasts had a glowing Dr. Who Tardis on each table, used the sword Sting from Lord of the Rings to cut their cake, and a late night Star Wars light sabre battle. They also the wedding vendor dream-team working for them as well: the venue was Saunders Farm, planning by Live Love Plan, cinema by First Kiss Films, ceremony by Exceptional Ceremonies, flowers by Full Bloom, hair by Mint Hair Studio, make-up by One Fine Beauty, music by PM Event Services, and a dress from With Love Bridal. I have never worked with a more exceptional collection of professionals at any of my previous 100+ weddings and I hope that we all work together again soon! Congratulations Amanda and Brandon!
