Portfolio Series #10 – The Flower girlJuly 27, 2012

Poor little one. She proudly started up the aisle and, with the encouragement of the groom she was well on her way to the end of the aisle when as she grabbed for more petals…they fell. Everyone watching she just simply crumbled and the groom came to her rescue and later threw the flowers down the aisle for her…so sweet.

Ottawa Wedding Photographers




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 candid moments I’ve
captured on the wedding day.

Ottawa Wedding Show 2012January 15, 2012

Thank you to everyone that came by my wedding photography booth on Saturday to say hello, ask a few questions and take a peek at some of my latest work. There are some exciting destination weddings ahead for 2011 from wineries and vineyards to the caribbean, France and Mexico. Closer to home, some weddings are being planned at some of my favorite intimate wedding venues such as Restaurant 18, Juniper other chic restaurants in Ottawa and my favorite large venues, Chateau Laurier, the Westin, The Marshes, The Brookstreet Hotel and The Hilton Lac Leamy. I don’t think you could go wrong with any of these!

Conversations on the floor were filled with the excitement of planning and it really was a treat to meet so many brides to be just newly engaged and taking in all the wedding inspiration. If you missed coming by, here’s what the booth looked like…I couldn’t resist using a splash of the trendy tangerine.

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!
