Guylaine and Shawn first contacted me when they began planning their Ottawa River Cruise wedding last winter. The day we planned to meet was one of the worst weather days of the year, and it took me about 45 minutes to make the (normally 15min) drive downtown to “Les Trois Brasseurs” pub. They explained to me that their wedding was going to be aboard one of the Ottawa River cruise boats, and it would be on a fall evening, so there would virtually be no light at all. Guylaine is a videographer, and is well aware of the challenges that low-light conditions can present, so she was specifically looking for a photographer who isn’t afraid of the dark. Since there aren’t too many challenges I’m not game for, I said “sign me up!”.
Their wedding day was an unusually chilly fall day, with scattered rain. The 2014 weather curse didn’t break for this wedding, I think most August/September weekends were rainy this year. Thankfully, the rain held-off for the important parts, and I we got some cool photos, but most of all, I think everyone had a lot of fun…in case that’s not obvious in the pictures. If you want an idea about how laid-back these guys are, pay special attention to the photo of Guylaine shaving her legs….while wearing her wedding gown. That was a first!
Congratulations Guylaine + Sean!
