Wedding of Katelyn and Ben at Saunders Farm in Munster near Ottawa

If anyone else had told Katelyn that rain was good luck on a wedding day, I think that person would have been attending the wedding via Skype from a hospital bed. It rained and she cried, but then she smiled and suddenly the rain didn’t matter anymore. “I promise to love you forever” were the words they told each other when they fell in love in high school and these were the same words repeated on their wedding day.

Wedding of Mary and Conrad at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa

Mary and Conrad were married earlier this month at St. Patrick’s Basilica and partied in the big purple tent at the National Arts Centre. This wedding had so much going on that I barely had time to rest – on top of all of the normal wedding stuff, there were Chinese and Vietnamese tea ceremonies, a roast pig and feats of strength. They had the most stylish guests I have seen in a long time and at any given time there were three dance-battles happening on the dance floor – thanks to the raddest DJ I have ever worked with. Good times!

I was lucky enough to pick up a few awards in the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers summer contest. Some of my favorite images from some of my favorite weddings were chosen, as well as one of my favorite engagement shots of the year. Enjoy!

Wedding of Jacqueline + Andre in Kingston

I had a great time shooting Jacqueline and Andre’s wedding in Kingston last weekend – I have not had the opportunity to shoot in the area since 2008. Jacqui got ready with her girls at the beautiful Frontenac Club Inn, they were married at St. Francis of Assis catholic church, we took a trolley ride, shot their portraits up and down the shore line, and they partied to a live band at Queens University’s Ban Righ Hall. It was a great day (finally bellow 30 degrees!) and they were a great couple to work with!
