Sure it rained during Kaileigh and James’s wedding at Vignoble in Gatineau, but who cares. Rain never ruined any weddings I have been to.

Amy and Alan are the kind of people that I love getting to know; fun loving, quirky, romantic, and easygoing. They held a beautiful Great Gatsby-inspired wedding at the Museum of Nature and Sala San Marco last summer and I was very excited to photograph their big day. It was a real pleasure to get to know them and photograph their engagement session and wedding. Their images are presented in black and white because I felt it complimented there timeless and intimate qualities.

Danielle and Joey treated their family and friends to an emotional wedding ceremony at the Merrickville United Church and a great reception at the Brookstreet Hotel in Ottawa. The day was full of laughter, romance, stupid human tricks, and of course a great party. I photographed Danielle a few times in her aspiring modelling days and was very happy to get called in for their big day. I also photographed Joey’s aunt, Elizabeth Manley for the Globe and Mail, a few years ago, so I wasn’t a stranger to that side of the family either. It was a day I was excited to be a part of!
