Strathmere, Ottawa

Karen & Patrick were married last month, with a beautiful ceremony followed by a fantastic dinner at the historic stone manor at Strathmere, just South of Ottawa.   It was unusually HOT for May in Ottawa, a gorgeous day from beginning to end, with fun celebrations with close family and friends.  Karen & Patrick decided to do a “first look” prior to the ceremony to enjoy a private moment together and shake-off some of the pre-ceremony jitters…I think the photos are great.  The small group partied late into the evening; with the younger guests running out of steam by the time the music stopped.

Engagement shoot at University of Toronto - Huang & Stephanie

Huang and Stephanie contacted me about photographing their wedding in Ottawa this year, although they both currently live in Toronto.  We planned their engagement shoot on an evening when I was planning to be in town, and we had a great time shooting around their gorgeous old University campus at the University of Toronto, and a few more at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), before calling it a day.  It was a lot of fun, and I think we got some really nice photos around the beautiful grounds of UofT.

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.
