Michelle + Alex’s Le Belvedere wedding in Wakefield, Quebec was like something out of a storybook.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, which is such a blessing at such a beautiful naturally-set venue.  Even though Le Belvedere has incredible facilities inside, in the event of rain, it’s the spectacular outdoor vistas that make this place so special.

The day went-off without a hitch, and was full of laughter, incredible latino music & dancing, and heartfelt emotion.  Both Michelle and Alex come from very close, warm families, and it was great to see a room full of such love.  The mix of Ecuadorian/Italian/French cultures made the day extremely colourful.

This wedding was also extra special, because I was able to have a great friend, and amazing fellow wedding photographer with me, Kymberlie Dozois.  These photos below are ones I took, but I urge you to also go check out her work when you have a chance…it’s beautiful.

Congratulations, Michelle + Alex!

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.
