OK.  I’m not a shy person.  I have even been described as enthusiastic once or twice.  But I have NOTHING on Megan.  I don’t think I have ever met anyone with a bigger personality.  After the ridiculously fun engagement shoot we had in Ottawa this summer, I knew Megan & Cameron’s wedding would be one for the books.  And it was.

Megan and Cameron live in Ajax, just East of Toronto, and they chose the gorgeous Bloomfield Gardens in Newcastle, a bit farther East, for their wedding.  The weather was fantastic, the venue was gorgeous, and they had so many nice, personal (and elegant) touches throughout the wedding day.  It was an absolute joy to work with them, and I hope I did their awesome day justice.  I think it’s safe to say that everyone there had a great time, and I’d bet that they drank the bar dry by the time closing time came around.

Here are some of my favourites.  Congratulations, Megan & Cameron…wishing you animals all the happiness in the world.

David and Carine are getting married late this winter in beautiful Mont Tremblant.  Usually, I would think that a mid-march wedding might be a bit on the warm side, but I recall being at Mont Tremblant this year in April, and it was still so cold that some of the runs were CLOSED because of the wind chill.  Oh, Canada…  On a similar theme, this session was mid-October, and we got a bit of a freak snowfall for a few minutes – as you kind-of see in one of the photos.

For their engagement shoot, we met at the Moulin Wakefield, and just hiked around the area  looking for nice light.  Wakefield is such a great little town, it’s not hard to find almost sickeningly nice spots for photos.

I feel like Amanda + Brad are almost family at this point.  You see, Amanda first contacted me about being their photographer back in July 2013.  That is almost TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO!  At the time, my daughter, Kate, wasn’t even two years old, and I was thinking to myself “Wow, Kate will be in Kindergarten when this wedding actually takes place”.

To say that Amanda is a thorough planner would be a gross understatement.  Not only had she begun the wedding plans more than two full years in advance, but she also had an entire 3D rendering of their reception hall setup of the Marshes.  Unreal.  Don’t believe me?  Check it out:

Like…even the beams…even the light fixtures…even the linens, decor…all exactly as they were in real life.  I was blown away.

Amanda and Brad are that perfect Ying & Yang couple, who balance each other out beautifully.  Amanda is and architect, and Brad is a numbers guy.  They are so fantastic together, they ooze great energy, and it shows in their photos.  I dare you to not smile as you look at them.

Their Marshes Golf Club wedding day was one of those rare, totally rainy days, but we somehow lucked-out and it stopped pouring just long enough to get some photos at the Ornamental Gardens in Ottawa’s Central Experimental Farm, between their ceremony at Divine Infant Parish in Orleans, and their reception at the Marshes Golf Club in Kanata.  It was a crazy fun day…enjoy!
