Chateau Laurier Wedding ~*~ Elisa & Andrew ~*~ Ottawa Wedding Photography

Elisa and Andrew contacted me to shoot their wedding after I had the pleasure of photographing Andrew and his Mom for one of my “Mom and Me” Sessions (I love when adult children take photos with their parents!!).

A month or so later, I met up with Andrew and his lovely fiance Elisa for a coffee, they told me about their vision for their day, and we clicked. I took their engagement photos at the Dominion Arboretum and absolutely loved shooting them. They were genuine and honest in their love and images in front of the camera, they just made everything so easy. Needless to say, their wedding day was much of the same. Their easy going and laid back nature made their wedding day at the Chateau Laurier a dream from beginning to end.

Here are some of my favourite images of the day!

Strathmere Wedding ~*~ Emily & Jesse ~*~ Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Emily and Jesse were married June 2017 at the Strathmere Lodge in Ottawa’s south end. With a beautiful country atmosphere, this wedding was a perfect combination of Emily’s city girl personality and Jesse’s laid back country style. Their two adorable girls were the beautiful flower girls, and their nephew the handsome little ring bearer. The weather shined down on their day, with rain only minutes before their ceremony was to begin, but the benches were wiped down, and the sunny outdoor ceremony was a beautiful success.

Here are a few of my favourite images of the day:

Stephanie & Alex ~ Richmond Backyard Wedding | Ottawa Wedding Photographer

Stephanie and Alex contacted me last year to photograph their wedding, and I couldn’t be happier that they did! With all the wet and rain that Ottawa has been getting this spring and summer, their day had nothing but heat and beautiful sunshine.

Stephanie and Alex were married in Richmond, Ontario. Their ceremony and reception were held in the backyard of the Bride’s parents home. A stunning location fit for a beautiful backyard wedding.
