I was really excited when I heard from Jessica and Steve about photographing her wedding this July – a private ceremony in Steve’s parent’s yard, followed by a reception at the amazing Juniper Kitchen & Wine Bar in Westboro.  We got together on a gorgeous evening this week, and had a lot of fun doing their engagement shoot at Westboro Beach, and around their beautiful home nearby.

I met with Stephanie and Yannick yesterday to finally have a chance to do their engagement shoot.  They asked to postpone a few times due to strange & changing weather, but when the weather gods finally cooperated, I think we definitely made the wait worthwhile.  It was a lot of fun around the National Art Gallery in Ottawa, and I can’t wait for their wedding at Marshes Golf Club in early July!

As owner of Juniper Kitchen and Wine bar, Pete and I have known each other for quite a while now.  Juniper hosted Ottawa’s amazing “Dueling Chefs” events in 2010 and 2011, where I got to hang out with Pete (read: staying out of his way) in the kitchen for about a dozen Mondays each year.  When he proposed to Alicia, I was thrilled that they asked me to photograph their wedding at Billings Estate Museum, followed by a reception at his own restaurant.  The day was gorgeous from start to finish, and everything went as planned.  It was a great time, with great weather, followed by, of course, great food.
