Sara and Jason’s Poolside Wedding

Sara and Jason are such a special Couple. They joined together with their closest family and friends around a beautiful pool side in Eganville Ontario. The Pool and stunning Tiki Bar area was located in a friends yard (Otherwise known as “Punta Canada”).  It was a gorgeous sunny day with plenty of heat. The Bride walked down the aisle with both of her parents at her side. Sara’s daughters were part of the wedding party. After the couples vows were read Jason had a surprise for the girls. Not only did he have vows and a ring for Sara, but also for them.

His vows:

“I know I wasn’t there for the first steps that you took, but I promise that from this day forward I will love and support you…”

The details of this wedding were centered around this great couple’s Love. Sara and Jason, with the help of the girls, even made their wedding cake from scratch. Formal pictures were taken just down the road at a huntcamp location with fields, rustic buildings, and even an old bus stop! LUCKY US…. the photo ops were endless!

Thank you for letting us share your special day with you… We wish Sara, Jason, the girls, and the new little bundle (coming this year) the best future possible.

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!

Celebrate Our River – The Bonnechere- June 6 2015

Celebrate Our River – The Bonnechere- June 6 2015

On Saturday June 6th Jenn and I had the pleasure of celebrating our beautiful Bonnechere River!

I participate in a mass paddle from Wilber Lake to Eganville, and Jenn was waiting on shore to capture some great photos of the group as we arrived back and of all the events on shore.  The event was organized by Mark Jones and he did a tremendous job organizing such a great day!

After registering in the morning canoes and kayaks were transport to Wilber Lake, Paddlers boarded the bus at the Eganville Arena where the paddlers met to start our day.  The group outing was blessed with a few words and song by Mr. Ross and then it was time to take to the water.  According to Mr. Jones this was the best attended paddle to date.
