A Year in Review: 2019 Ottawa Weddings


Well, it's been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post, I'm not very good at the whole "words" thing, so I tend to run away from this task. But 2019 was a wonderful year for weddings, that I just had to wrap up 2019 with a "Best Of" post.

I can't believe another year, and wedding season, has come and gone. I'm pretty sure I say this every year, but I have a feeling this year went faster than most. I filled my summer with beautiful weddings (both second shooting, and my own amazing couples) and engagement sessions, and sprinkled in some fun times with friends and family. I got to travel a bit for one wedding, I met some amazing people who I'm still so in love with, and had the chance to work with some talented vendors along the way - some new faces, and some I've worked with before and can't wait to work with again next year.

It was tough narrowing down the photos to share with you! I had only 3 couples booked this year, but they were such wonderful people. Here is a look at some of my favourites from their weddings!

I don't think I've ever seen a first look quite like Jessica & Brendans, where Brendan both laughed and cried as soon as he saw his beautiful bride.

Katie and her dad had a very emotional first look, the kind where you're hiding your tears behind the camera. I love being a part of these special moments!

Can I make a request? More sparklers in 2020 please!!

Kevin and Jessica had a small intimate ceremony in the fall, followed up in November with a reception full of their closest family and friends. Can I make a second request for 2020? More cats during the "getting ready" part of the wedding day!

Their guest book was a bowl of rubber duckies that you got to sign, how cute!

A big congratulations to all of these amazing couples, and a huge thank you for making my 2019 such a success.

I can't wait to see what 2020 brings!
