Tanya and Adam Wed- Ottawa Valley Photographers

Intimate ceremonies always touch our hearts!

Tanya and Adam were wed at Tanya’s Father’s home in Killaloe. The couple shared their vows and a sand ceremony with their family and friends. The waterfront property is GORGEOUS! The ceremony finished with a BANG as the couple set off a cannon that is on display at the home. Most of the formal pictures were done on this property and a few followed at the reception venue. We were happy to share in their day and Wish this couple a great future!

Katrinna and Ian’s Rustic Outdoor Wedding- Ottawa Valley Photographers

Katrinna and Ian’s Rustic Outdoor Wedding- Ottawa Valley Photographers

Katrinna and Ian are a perfect match! From their love of the outdoors, hunting, and fishing, to their absolute LOVE for one another, it is just so clear they are meant to be! They light up when they look at eachother and  share the same sense of humor.  Their Wedding took place along the Indian river and was breathtakingly serene. The ceremony was such a celebration of who they are as a couple.

The formal portraits were done at the Wedding venue (owned by Valley Tent and Party Rentals) and at a few other locations surrounding the area. Katrinna had found a perfect spot down some old train tracks that had a rustic old bridge . We were lucky enough to knock on the door of a resident in the area that hosted a waterfront property with a dock and a bridge near by. There was also a beautiful trail used for hiking and four-wheeling. All of the locations suited this couple and their super fun wedding party perfectly. We even got the couple in a passerby’s quad! How fun is that!

We wish Katrinna and Ian much Joy together in the future. Congrats Again Guys!

Cancer survivor contest winner! – Ottawa Valley Photographers

Cancer survivor contest winner! – Ottawa Valley Photographers

Since Lisa and I have both lost our Mothers to Cancer in the last few years we decided that we needed to do something to honor their lives.  We came up with a yearly contest for a free Photo Session. We asked that people nominate someone living with Cancer or a Survivor. This year was our first year and 22 people were nominated. I wrote out each name nominated by hand and put it into in a bowl. My son was excited to pick a name…

The winner is… Tristan … a 7 year old boy who survived! He is energetic, funny, and full of Joy!  What a blessing it was to work with him and his blended family. I asked his mom to give me a bit of a timeline of his journey and she replied “He was diagnosed in April 2013 (when he was 5) with stage 3 kidney cancer (Wilms tumour) and had his right kidney removed shortly after. He had radiation for a week and chemo until October 2013. He did amazingly well all through his treatments and all his scans have been clear since then.”

We wish Tristan and this family a lifetime full of great health and happiness.

Katrinna and Ian’s Couple Session – Ottawa Valley Photography

Katrinna and Ian’s Couple Session – Ottawa Valley Photography

Katrinna and Ian are a couple that love the outdoors. On a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, we headed to their home on a beautiful property in Golden Lake Ontario. It is often referred to as the “back farm”. The property offers heavily wooded areas, fields, trees, rustic barns, and even a stunning pond. Such a  Beautiful piece of land and perfect for this couple’s photos. The bugs were out in full force but it did not stop Kat and Ian from letting us capture their intimate moments on camera.

Our second location was another piece of family waterfront property just a few minutes away.  We captured the couple in their Canoe and on the dock at waterfront.

You can see the LOVE and PASSION between these two so easily! We are very excited to capture their special day in late August. It is going to be such a FUN wedding!

Crystal + John’s Covered Bridge Engagement – Ottawa Valley Photographers

On a slightly overcast afternoon, we met Crystal and John at the Covered Bridge Park.  The park is located between Round Lake and Golden Lake and is an absolutely gorgeous property with two covered bridges and lovely waterfront along the Bonnechere River.  Gorgeous fields and treed areas made for so many perfect areas for photographs.

Crystal and John are a wonderful couple and we could truly feel the love between them.  We are looking forward to their August wedding!

Kaitlin & Johnny Engagement – Ottawa Valley Photography

Kaitlin and Johnny are high school sweethearts and they are getting married in July!   Last October Jenn took them out to a friend’s farm to capture some “Save the Date” photographs to help announce their upcoming wedding.  It was a chilly day and they had to contend with the season’s first snow fall but I think they had a great time.  Our Friend L’s farm is a great setting and offers us rustic barns and wood fences and an overall relaxed feeling.

We decided on a fields and flowers feel for the rest of the engagement session that we did this spring.  We are really looking forward to Kaitlin and Johnny’s wedding.  These two are so in love and just so sweet, we can’t wait until July!
