A blog of our current photography work.

Marionne and Juan

Marionne and Juan had a gorgeous winter wedding at Company 251. It ended up being a really cold and snowy day but we braved the weather and sneaked outside for a few quick shots. Their intimate ceremony was held on the first floor where their dog, Henry, stole the show as the ring bearer. After a few cocktails everybody went upstairs for the reception. While the guests were eating, the first floor was flipped and fitted with a collection of mirror balls for the dancing. The effect was stunning and made for one of the prettiest first dances we’ve seen. Congrats to Marionne and Juan on a beautiful wedding, we are so excited for you to welcome your baby this coming spring!!

As photographers, we have been privileged to be present during of some of the most powerful, intimate and difficult times in people’s lives. Last week we got an email from a family who wanted some portraits with their sweet dog, Birdie. They rescued this pup 3 years ago and just found out she had a tumor in her bladder and her spine. Birdie had given them so much love during her time with them, but she was ready for the next part of her journey. I was honored to come to their house to capture a few last portraits, before they said goodbye.

There are few things more beautiful than giving love, comfort and peace to a dog during their final days, and our hearts go out to this family!

Emily and John

Emily and John got married on a snowy January day at the Carleton hotel in Oak Park. Emily’s brother drove us to Pleasant Home which is the perfect location for portraits on a cold day (think roaring fireplace!). After we did some portraits we took a quick detour to a spot under the train tracks to put up a lock with their names on it and then took a quick stroll in the snow outside of the portraits. This was all before their ceremony in the Carleton!

I grew up down the street from Emily and have memories of going over to play at their house as a kid. They also took one of our puppies when our dog had babies! It was so great to reconnect with their family and see a bunch of people from Ottawa.

Congratulations to Emily and John!
