Laura + Aaron | Ottawa engagement portraits


Laura and Aaron didn’t want a typical set of engagement portraits, which is great, because that is something I try very hard not to do! The best engagement portraits for me are the ones that highlight something about the couple – something that gives relevance about their relationship to the pictures. They play a lot of ultimate frisbee and wanted to take photos that captured some iconic places in downtown Ottawa. Nothing says love like sweating it out while playing catch on the front lawn of Parliament Hill. After their frisbee-scrimmage, we ducked into the Chateau Laurier for a costume change before┬áheading down past the Rideau canal locks to the Ottawa River to take in a beautiful sunset.

Rayner + Victoria | Winterlude engagement session

Last winter, I strapped on some skates with Victoria and Rayner for their Winterlude engagement session on the Rideau Canal. Skating with cameras, what could go wrong?

Melissa + Mike | Engagement Portraits

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.
