Getting Married?

I am based in Ottawa, Ontario – a beautiful backdrop for your photos. Having lived here all my life, I have a fond appreciation for Ottawa’s historic architecture, lush nature, beautiful waterfront and the charm of the Byward Market. I can’t wait to put this beautiful city to work for you! I also travel outside of Ottawa for weddings and am always looking forward to discovering Ontario’s hidden treasures – contact me for more information!

Engagements

For engagement sessions, I like to shoot outdoors in a variety of different locations to give your photos a natural, personalized and romantic feel. Engagement sessions provide the opportunity for us to work together before the big day – you get a sense for what it’s like to be in front of the camera and I get a sense for your personal style.

I have a unique approach to capturing your photos – I combine both traditional poses and photojournalism to deliver beautiful candid imagery. In my experience, the best shots are not necessarily the posed ones, but the ones right before and after – those will be the ones you fall in love with. Everyone gets a little nervous in front of the camera, it’s natural, but by the end of the engagement session, not only will you have fun and develop a comfort for being photographed, but will be armed and ready for your wedding day!

Contact me to find out how to translate your collection of engagement photos into a guestbook – it’s a perfect keepsake and a great way to share your photos with your guests.

Weddings

My wedding photography is a modern, evolved form of photojournalism. My task is to document your day from the details, to everything else in between, that makes your celebration unique. I pride myself on providing not just amazing imagery, but a unique wedding experience customized to reflect who you are as a couple to best convey the story of your wedding day.

My style is non-intrusive; I blend into your wedding and very often laugh, and yes cry, along with you. I strive to be as much a part of your day, as I am there to document it. In doing so, I hope to put you at ease so you can have fun, feel beautiful and be a little spontaneous because that is what will make your images come to life – a beautiful reflection of you! There are no additional travel fees within a 45 minute drive of Ottawa.

If you are interested in destination wedding photography, please contact me for details. I travel along with you so that you never have to compromise with your wedding photos!

Trash the Dress

Ok – not literally! Trash the dress sessions are becoming very popular among brides who want to embrace their beautiful gowns one last time. I approach Trash the Dress sessions with a fashion and fine-art style of photography to capture you in a different light. These sessions allow us to get creative and I love exploring locations that are unique and fit your personality. I work with you to express your artistic side for those one-of-a-kind photos! Husbands are welcome (and encouraged) to join!
