I had a great time photographing LIndsay and Martin’s wedding at the Ottawa Westin this weekend – they were a smokin’ hot couple! They had a great team of pros their to take care of them – Tia Ward at the Westin, wedding chaplain Alan Viau, musician Kimberly Dunn and DJ Ray Ray. Her amazing dress was by Maggie Sottero, her black shoes were by Anne Klein and they gave each other watches as gifts, a Michael Kors for her and a Diesel for him.

I have been looking forward to photographing Carita and Tim’s wedding since I first met them; they are a great couple who are fun to be around and easy to laugh with. They were referred to me by friends/clients Kelly and Tomas and I am very glad that I was able to document their wedding day. The bride ‘iced’ the groom. If you don’t know what that means, check it out on You Tube. She had it taped to her leg for the garter toss – it was awesome! I also learned what it means to be ‘buffaloed’. If you are caught drinking with your right hand you have to chug your drink and if you chug your drink with your right hand you have to chug the next one too. The moral of the story is always drink with your left hand, so you can greet someone like a man or throw a punch. Needless to say, people had a good time.

Between all the laughter and tears, the cute Finnish accents and the crazy-ass drinking games it was definitely a party to remember!

I am very much looking forward to photographing Megan and Travis’ wedding next year at St. Patrick’s Basilica and the Sergeant and Warrant Officer’s mess in Ottawa. They liked to go on road trips when they first started dating, so we wanted to bring the spontaneity of pulling off at a random, scenic location into the shoot.

When Megan spontaneously jumped into Travis’ arms while they were standing on the rocks I thought they were both going into the water. He gave me the ‘holy shit’ look right before she leaped; it’s a good thing he does his sit-ups.

Brynna and Ken have been great friends of mine for many years and it was an honour to photograph their wedding this past weekend in Napanee, Ontario. One of K & B’s first major dates was to the wedding of my wife and I. These are some studious looking m’er f’ers, no?

Here at Blair Gable Photography we just don’t take pictures of people in meadow’s at dusk, sometimes we stand in the middle of rivers. Katelyn and Ben are a great couple who’s wedding I will have the pleasure of photographing next year and we headed out into the county for their engagement shoot. The first attempt was ended when a massive thunderstorm rolled into town, the second time we nailed it – the light was perfect. The only problem was that we had to hop across slick river rocks to get to it! Despite wearing heeled boots, Katelyn took it all in stride.
