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!

Genevieve and Mark Tie the Knot- Oaks of Cobden Golf Course-Ottawa Valley Photographers

Genevieve and Mark Tie the Knot- Oaks of Cobden Golf Course-Ottawa Valley Photographers

Genevieve and Mark were Wed at the Oaks of Cobden Golf Course. It was a stunning location for the wedding to take place. In the hours leading up to the union the sky looked very dark. The chance of rain looked ever so likely. However, about 30 minutes before the ceremony, the sun came out! The outdoor ceremony took place in front of a beautifully staged arch that the Groom made himself. There was a sand ceremony to symbolize the union of this couple.

The formal pictures were taken on the golf course and at two farm locations near by. It was humid, but the couple and their wedding party carried on with smiles and laughter! The Wedding Party incorporated the couple’s best friends and family. We had so much fun with this Group! We were honored to be part of this special day. We know Gen and Mark’s future in love will be bright.

Congrats again to this Happy Couple!

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.

Highschool Sweethearts On Their Wedding Day – Ottawa Valley Photographers

Highschool Sweethearts On Their Wedding Day – Ottawa Valley Photographers

Kaitlin and Jonathan met in High school and have been together for 13 Years. Their Engagement was 7 years long. However, after being with these two for only a few moments, it was as though they were still two young kids in love. The sparkle in Jonny’s eye when he looks at her is a clear sign of the love these two share. We have worked with this couple since last fall when we did their save the date pictures, and we had another chance this spring when we captured their Engagement session.

The Wedding Day was beautiful with clear skies and plenty of heat.  The couple was Married at The First Presbyterian Church In Pembroke Ontario. Formal Pictures were taken at a private residence in Rankin. The location offered beautiful rock cuts, trees, and fields. The Dinner and reception Followed at the Rankin Recreational Center. Where the Wedding Party, family, and many friends danced the night away.

Throughout the entire day these two never stopped smiling. Their Love was so radiant. The wedding Party was a great team and so much fun! Thanks for letting us be part of this milestone in your lives Kaitlin and Jonny! We wish you all the best in the future.1 (1) 1 (3)-2 1 (4) 1 (5) -2 1 (5) 1 (5)-1 1 (5)-2 1 (5)-3 1 (6) 2 (1) 2 (2) 2 (3) 2-1 (1) 2-1 (2) 2-1 (3) 2-1 (4) 2-1 (5) 2-1 (6) 2-1 (7) 2-1 (8) 2-1 (9) 2-1 (10) 2-1 (11) 2-1 (12) 3 (1) 3 (2) 3 (3) 4 (1) 4 (2) 4 (3) 4 (4) 4 (6) 5 (1) 5 (3) 5 (4) 5 (5) 5 (5)-2 6 (1) 6 (2) 6 (3) 6 (4)

A Growing Family- Ottawa Valley Photographers

A Growing Family- Ottawa Valley Photographers

In July we had the privilege of capturing some family photos of the “S” Family. After being able to capture both their Engagement and Wedding Photos , it was great to be a part of their first family photos. We absolutely adored Baby K and saw a clear extension of their love in him. The photos were taken on a very hot, sunny day at a local farm in Eganville Ontario. There wasn’t much shade to be found but that did not stop us nor this amazing family!  We are very happy for this couple and their little man and we wish them much happiness as they watch him grow. We have included a few pictures of this families journey with us below. Thanks you for letting us be a part of your special moments together!
