Portfolio Series #9 – JoyJuly 25, 2012

I adore this image of the bride literally jumping into the grooms arms. There is so much pure Joy. Only moments after their ceremony and moments into our photo session…she just had to!

In each wedding there are moments that tell a story, that are meaningful or just amazing for the simplicity of the moment that is captured. They are important moments; but may never find themselves included in a wedding magazine or blog, but to me it would be a shame if they were not shown. This is at the heart of my Wedding Portfolio Series. Through this series I will showcase some favorite moments captured on the wedding day.

Portfolio Series #7 – When the Wind BlowsJuly 23, 2012

Sussex avenue is a wind tunnel; one of the coldest streets to walk up in the winter. And when the wind blows in the summer it really blows. At times when wind meets a cathedral veil, the results can be both cinematic and elegant. However, when that same wind throws the whole bunch of that veil into a whirlwind, the result is a great bit of laughter on the wedding day. While trying for a much more subtle and dramatic image, the wind took Erin’s veil up and around her lovely face, and I couldn’t help but capturing her amazing laughter. Having an amazing wedding day often means embracing every moment.

Portfolio Series #5 – Mom’s SpeechJuly 21, 2012

One of my favorite times at a wedding are when the speeches start. You learn so much about the couple, their
relationships and who they are to the people they cherish. Here, the bride is obviously touched by mom’s speech and I must admit there were few dry eyes including my own that evening. I love how the groom holds the bride here in a genuine moment of tenderness.

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!
