May 30, 2015 - Carissa & Thomas

Fate threw Carissa and Thomas a few curveballs on their wedding day, from a brief power outage at the church to a thunderstorm during the formal photos. But Carissa and Tom's love and commitment persevered, as they conquered it all with smiles on their faces. I had a blast celebrating their wedding with them and meeting their families, and I know they're going to have a long and happy life together. Here is a handful of my favourite photos from their wonderful wedding day.

October 4, 2014 - Karen & Pat

Not even Mother Nature could dampen the love Karen and Pat have for each other, as they joined their lives together on this rainy October day. You might see some familiar faces in these wedding photos, I had the privilege of photographing Karen's sister Sheryl's wedding back in 2010, and I was ecstatic to get a chance to work with their family again in celebrating another huge event in their lives. From the gorgeous wedding dress, to the beautiful details at the church, to the historic and picturesque Chateau Laurier, Karen and Pat had a stunning wedding day, despite a little rain. Here are a few of my favourite photos from their wonderful wedding day.

October 5, 2013 - Susan & Andrew

Fall weddings can be hit or miss, from a photography perspective. Sometimes, you can end up with a cold, wet day, surrounded by bare, leafless trees. But when you luck out and hit that sweet spot, you can get some amazing photos. Fortunately, for Susan and Andrew's wedding, the stars aligned and we had that perfect combination of beautiful late summer weather, with gorgeous, fiery fall colours. Susan and Andrew couldn't have picked a more perfect venue, exchanging their vows at the beautiful and historic Wakefield Mill, in Quebec. I only got to spend a few hours with this lovely couple, but they and their families were all extremely open and welcoming. I love working with couples like Susan and Andrew, and I wish them all the best. Here are a handful of highlights from their picturesque fall wedding.

June 1, 2013 - Tanya & Jonathan

I don't get to do a whole lot of destination weddings, so I was really looking forward to Tanya and Jonathan's wedding. I met Jonathan through a mutual geeky interest (the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering), and I was ecstatic to be invited to join him and Tanya in Lake Placid as they started their new life together. The clouds threatened rain, but held off until we were all safe and sound at the reception, blessing us instead with perfect photography lighting during the day. I loved going to Lake Placid for this wedding - it was like a combination vacation/party! Here are a few of my the highlights from Lake Placid, New York - Congratulations Tanya and Jonathan!

May 11, 2013 - Stephanie & Andrew

Wedding season has officially kicked off! And I couldn't have wished for a better couple to start my 2013 summer wedding season than Stephanie and Andrew. As it happens, Andrew has the same last name as me! However, I don't think we're related, as Andrew's family is from Ireland, which made for a very energetic reception. I had a blast meeting both Stephanie and Andrew's families, and I hope they had as much fun as I did. The rain held off, we had a beautiful venue (the Museum of Nature), and I came away with some great photos. Here are some of my favorite shots - Congratulations Stephanie and Andrew!

February 23, 2013 - Sheena & Jonathan

Winter weddings can be a bit of a gamble, but Sheena and Jonathan had faith that Mother Nature would bless their wedding with some mild winter weather. I was so happy to work with Sheena and Jonathan, not only because they're so photogenic, but because they're such a fun couple. It turned out I had a lot in common with members of their wedding party, from a love of photography to homebrewing beer! Sheena and Jonathan chose to get married in an intimate ceremony at the gorgeous Courtyard Restaurant in the historic Market area of downtown Ottawa. Everyone had a great time, and although we did most of our photos indoors, I got plenty of great photos of Sheena, Jonathan, and their friends and family. Here are a few of the highlights - Congratulations Sheena and Jonathan!

October 13, 2012 - Vanessa & Brandon

I've been wanting to shoot a wedding at the Wakefield Mill for a long time, and to finally get the chance just as the leaves were changing, with such a photogenic and happy couple as Vanessa and Brandon, was every bit as wonderful as I'd hoped. The Wakefield Mill is absolutely stunning, and it was a real privilege to get to spend the day with Vanessa and Brandon. It was an early wedding, followed by a relaxed and personal get-together at the trendy Play restaurant in Ottawa's busling Market section. I had a great time with Vanessa and Brandon and ended up with some magnificent shots - look for them in my Portfolio next year. :) Congratulations, Vanessa and Brandon!
