Kristen and Phillip’s love story began at the airport, where they were both waiting in the lounge for their flights. After having met, they went on their first date at Union Local 613 in Ottawa. Kristen and Phillip’s love story will continue to evolve in June, where they will marry in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec surrounded by family and friends. We celebrated their story by starting out their engagement session at Union Local 613. Afterwards, we explored the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum at the Rockliffe Airport.

When you get to photograph a couples engagement session in an abandoned mine, you set your camera to epic. The ice was frozen thick, but you could see through it into the clear waters below, which was more than a little unnerving. Walking on clear ice was not nearly as anxiety inducing as the drive in-and-out down steep, snow packed lanes, but the adventure was more than worth the elevated heart rate. Congratulations Janie and Brad!

Once the House of Paint graffiti dried on the walls of the Bank Street bridge underpass, Samantha, Mark, and their kids wanted to check it out. So we combined an engagement session with engagement portraits and saw some great art along the way. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next year!

Melissa, Mike, and I spent an evening chasing light at Hogs Back Falls a little while ago. When you’ve got warm, soft light like this you don’t need much else.
