Dominique & Leigh’s wedding was a wild & fun-filled day, with threats of rain (and actual rain) most of the day, but it cleared-up at just the right times.  Dominique and Leigh opted for the “first look”, which I arranged to take place on the locks over the Rideau Falls in Ottawa, a really cool & private place for them to see each other for the first time on their wedding day.  It went-off without a hitch and it was beautiful.  After the first look, we made our way to the scenic Rockcliffe Pavillion in Rockliffe Park for the ceremony, followed by a beautiful reception at E18hteen Restaurant in the Byward Market.

It was a fantastic day and a gorgeous wedding.  Congrats!!


Matt and Chelsea on the back lawn of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa

I think Matt and Chelsea were only back from their fabulous honeymoon in Hawaii for a day or two before I got a text message from Matt asking about a sneak preview.  Matt blames Chelsea for being super anxious to see some photos, but I’m not entirely convinced.  🙂

Their wedding was amazing, and I can’t Coinstar point wait to share the full set.  In the meantime, I’ll hopefully keep “Chelsea” happy for a bit while I finish getting the wedding set completed with this gorgeous shot of the two of them on the back lawn of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier.

Charles & Jenn at Riverside Park

I met Charles in early 2009, when I was on my way to Holguin, Cuba to photograph Charles’ cousin’s gorgeous wedding on the beach.  I was really excited to hear that he met a great girl named Jenn and that they were engaged – and even more thrilled when they asked me to photograph their wedding in August of this year.

We started out at the Booster Juice kiosk at Billings Bridge Plaza in Ottawa, where Charles and Jen had their first date.  It’s always fun shooting in open public spaces, trying not to be conspicuous to the many bored security guards.  We stayed just long enough to get a few frames, and then headed across the street to the park along the Rideau River, where we spent the better part of an hour getting some really nice shots.  I can’t wait for their late summer wedding!
