There are so many reasons that these photos are so special to me. To start off, Emily has been a big part of my business from day one. When I was looking for people to practice on she stepped up in a big way – she got groups of her friends together, organized the outfits according to my concepts and patiently indulged me when I wanted to try new things. I learned a ton and had so much fun shooting her and her friends! Throughout the years I’ve had many chances to capture Emily and Phil and their friends and family.

Most importantly, though, these photos are special because my very favourite thing about photography is capturing relationships and emotions. It is special when you get to be a spectator and capture people’s relationships. However, it is an incredible honour to get to capture people when you have a relationship with them and their family.  I love these people!

As you can see from the photos this day was FUN.  Phil, Emily and their incredible wedding party were happy to follow my vision of wandering downtown Ottawa and seeing what transpired.  I always do some posed photos for weddings but my favourites are always the candids and the moments in between the organized pictures.  Our unplanned adventures took us to a free wine tasting, wandering the market, waving to bus loads of tourists and dancing to one of the buskers downtown.  I love what we created!

I could go on and on about the speeches and the rockin’ party but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Emily and Phil – thank you so much for including me in your day. I enjoyed every second of it! I can NOT wait to show you your complete gallery!

I’ve been spoiled by the number of really fun wedding parties I’ve had the chance to work with and this group was NO exception. Within 2 minutes of seeing them all together, I knew we were going to have a fun day. I laughed so hard during our time together that I had tears on a number of occasions. You could see how much this group loved Eric and Christine and how important it was to them that they have an amazing day.

The other thing that stands out to me about this day was how relaxed everyone was (after the ceremony!) We took our time, enjoyed the moments (including visiting ribfest!) and created some amazing photos. Throughout the whole day Eric and Christine had their priorities straight – they wanted to enjoy themselves, not be rushed and make sure they had fun with the people they invited. It was an absolute joy to capture all of this.

Eric and Christine – I left your wedding with a huge smile of my face feeling very thankful that we had met. Your day was everything a wedding should be – a day full of love, surrounded by people who support you, topped off with a fabulous party!
