Katie and Patrick were engaged last year during an afternoon boat ride at Patrick’s family cottage. Katie said “yes!” and the celebrations began.
There was, however, a bump in the road.
Katie was diagnosed with Lymphoma and the long road of chemo treatments ahead of her brought fear of the unknown. As chemo treatments began taking her hair and her energy with them, she and Patrick realized they wanted to make sure they had a fun engagement photo session to mark this happy stage in their relationship while Katie was still feeling up to it. Although wedding season was in full swing I quickly and happily shifted things around to meet them for a sunset engagement session full of love, laughs, warmth, and of course, Patrick’s Harley Davidson motorcycle:
I was reminded that, as of today, Katie is now officially done chemo treatments and on the mend. She is one of the strongest and most positive people I have met, while Patrick is an unfailing partner and caretaker. Thank you and congratulations!
I have always loved Ottawa Bride Magazine, a fresh and fun publication focusing on the modern bride here in the Ottawa area. So of course I jumped right on board to shoot this beautiful editorial for the Winter 2016/17 issue. We teamed up with Beauty Editor and makeup artist Klava Zycova to create this romantic and dreamy editorial which on focuses three different looks for the winter bride.
