A Date Over Butter Beers…

For my best friend Katie’s birthday, her partner of thirteen years gave her the ultimate gift; he decided to plan a day which surrounded her long held love for all things Harry Potter. He surprised her with tickets to “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in Concert with the NAC Orchestra” here in Ottawa, official uniforms […]

Jess and Dave, Vineyards and Sunshine

I realized that this past week marked one year since Jess and Dave’s beautiful wedding day in Niagara. They had an intimate wedding on Vineland Estates Winery, complete with cocktail party, surprise ice cream cake, first look between the vines – and of course fabulous wine. These two are beautiful inside and out, with the […]

Congrats, Beth & Adam!

Beth and Adam were married in the small Southern Ontario town of Kingsville on a beautiful Spring day. Top five favourite things from their wedding: 1.) Honouring Beth’s father. Although Beth was without her father on her wedding day after his unexpected passing a few years ago, she found the sweetest and subtlest ways to include […]

Krista and Graeme get hitched in Mexico!

This past April I was brought along on a wonderful destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera for Krista and Graeme. This couple is surrounded by an incredible group of friends and family, some of the funniest people I have ever been around. They are such a close knit group, yet continue to be welcoming and generous to […]

A Honduran Wedding

Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular these days, and for good reason. They are easy-peasy-breezy, one can plan a lot, or one can plan a little – and hey, on top of all of it you get an amazing vacation with those you hold dear. For Jordan and Alyson, a destination wedding made […]

Natalie & Keith, love and tulips

One hazy and hot spring morning I met up with Natalie and Keith to explore what springtime and the Ottawa Tulip Festival had to offer. In the end, what mattered was watching Keith and Natalie laugh, love, and steal moments together. The flowers, the light, the water, and the willows – offered nothing in comparison […]

Blaire & Dave are engaged!

Although these two live in the heart of downtown Toronto, they have a big soft spot for peaceful green-space. For our rainy spring afternoon of photos we met at Blaire’s Uncle’s beautiful farmhouse down a dirt road in the heart of the country. Umbrellas on hand, wandering the fields and barns, I got to capture the […]
