We skipped spring and went straight to summer this weekend – Which gave us lots of sun and a warm breeze for shooting Stephanie and Stefan’s engagement session. I cannot express how excited I am to shoot their June 8th wedding! Here’s a little taste of what we did. More to come soon!

Ottawa Wedding at Eighteen {18} in the Byward MarketOctober 18, 2011

Jennifer and Jason met early in their university careers …she knew him for quite some time as “Mr. Creepy Stares”(someone was obviously smitten!). Through persistance Jason finally won Jennifer over and so began their long journey through med school, internships, residencies and all the time apart as each of them became doctors in their respective specializations. When we met, Jason was working in Texas and Jennifer was in Winnipeg. Ottawa was very special to both of them and where their lives together began so they chose Ottawa for their destination wedding and so lucky for me, they chose me as their wedding photographer.

With Jennifer and Jason’s discerning taste they chose Eighteen 18 restaurant in the Byward Market as their venue.  They wanted their guests to be treated to a private and intimate evening with atmosphere that was elegant,  glamourous and eclectic – and it was outstanding. The floral designs were created by Millstreet florists and the staff at eighteen pulled out all the stops. They even created custom mini beavertail doughnuts for the occasion – by special request from the bride. Anyone who has ever dined at eighteen knows that the entire menu is a foodie dream and I do believe that there was little on the menu that wasn’t served up beautiful this night for their private reception.

Jennifer was beautiful in her Elizabeth Filmore  crepe silk sheath gown (style – Simone) with a classic black organza sash and fun ruffled shoes by Steve Madden.

We started the day at the Chateau Laurier and this is how their wedding story unfolds in pictures…

Wedding at Restaurant Eighteen 18 – Ottawa Wedding PhotographersAugust 9, 2011

Jennifer and Jason found me through their Toronto-based wedding planner and our first meeting took place over the phone, where Jennifer was completing her medical residency in Winnipeg while Jason was completing a fellowship in Texas. It wasn’t until a few months later that Jennifer and I would get a chance to meet in person to go through the details of their wedding day at Eighteen where we really hit it off. I felt like I had known Jennifer for years not moments. Her quiet strength, warmth and easy laugh made connecting effortless – and when she told me she wanted to have a glamourous, elegant feel to her wedding – I knew we were a match- ’cause romantic, beautiful and classic are what I do best…and Jennifer brought the glamour without question. I would only learn at the wedding that her soon to be loving husband was formerly known as “Mister Creepy Stares” from Frosh week – obviously Jason was smitten, but it would take quite a while for Jennifer to get close enough to “Creepy” to learn he was going to hold her hand into the future. 


I first met Jason a couple of weeks before the wedding for our engagement shoot. We had a fabulous engagement session that was cut short by an abrupt storm that blew my skirt near over my head! I’m talking sudden! Well we were bonded at that point- no secrets there! We sat over a few drinks at The Sidedoor, where I got to know Jason better – I was in intant fan. Jason, it just so happened, used to run a beer tasting website- I just happen to love microbrews and beers from around the world, so we had something fun to chat about. What impressed me most about these two very talented doctors -other than their truly amazing accomplishments – was the depth of their great love for each other – in spite of the trying past few years of residencies, exams and distance – they had finally arrived at the point in their lives where they could take a deep breath, say they “Dog Days are Over” and begin their lives together – in the same city (of Winnipeg) and take in their great new lives ahead.


It has been an honour guys-thank you…this is for you…



Honourable mention to the staff at eighteen for being so fabulous. The food was simply out of this world! Grand Merci Matt Carmichael for your beautiful menu!

Kingston Engagement Session -Ottawa Wedding PhotographerJuly 30, 2011

I met Lucia and Carlos together for the first time before their wedding day in Ottawa. They almost didn’t hire a wedding photographer! We had a drink or two at the Black Tomato in Ottawa’s Byward Market to get to know each other a bit better and there was an instant click among us.  I would be lying if I said that Carlos was over the moon about being photographed at all, but by the time we started shooting we were having a great time and all looking forward to the big day. Lucia and Carlos were married at the National Arts Centre in a Great Gatsby themed wedding that was stunningly decorated by Jenna Majikot of Dahlia Event Production, who inspired Chef David Blackie to even remark, “Wow! Decor that is worthy of my food!”. More from their beautiful wedding to come.
