We shot this last fall. In November…what a season it was! Fall in cottage country was perfection last year. It lasted until December and it couldn’t have made me happier (fyi I heat with wood). We were very lucky! Not going to lie, I was little concerned about our reading week engagement session in the middle of November. In Muskoka the weather is less than predictable. As you can see though, we hit the jackpot! Coleen and Neill are getting married on this old family farmhouse property, just outside of Bracebridge in Muskoka. Can’t wait for this day. Outdoor weddings in Muskoka are where it’s at! Oh, and they have an incredibly photogenic dog-baby.
I’m very happy to finally be blogging this beautiful forestwedding! I was pretty happy to shoot it too! What a day it was. I met Toni for the first time almost 10 years ago…more! Her and I went to college together, in Ontario. When she contacted me to photograph her wedding (which was this past September 2012) I was thrilled. We met in Ottawa one (maybe two) weekend and talked about all things wedding. The property was beautiful and her vision seemed simply dreamy. You can tell she’s an inspired woman with a lot of love in her heart.
I hope you enjoy this sweet little Sugar Shack – Ottawa Valley Wedding as much as I did. These two were fabulous!
Sandy told me tonight that this was on her bucket list. Before our fall session she’d never had professional family photographs with her boys. And—-CHECK! Cheers to Sandy, her boys, and a future full of bucket-list-check-offs.
Perhaps you experienced the incredible weather we had up here over the Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps you didn’t? The skies over Lake Bernard in Sundridge were so dramatic. The most interesting I’ve ever seen. Alexa and Adrian still decided to wed on the pier at The Northridge Inn and Resort. As their photographer I could not have been happier about this decision. The winds blew through Alexa’s veil, the sun shone through perfectly on Adrian as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. It was awesome. What wasn’t so awesome…the hail, the snow, and the rain which began almost immediately following their ceremony. It was frigid! We barely made it through their family portraits, never mind a beautiful bridal session. Alas, as you may have seen, we were able to capture some pretty spectacular images (thanks to adventurous clients, beautiful skies, and willing family). And after all of that-we still wanted more. Monday of the long weekend we got all dressed up and did it again. This time the sun was hot (ish), the skies were blue, and the forest was vibrant. This is what we came up with! Enjoy.
What a great afternoon. Lila and Chris love ribs. Like, REALLY love ribs. What better place to shoot their engagement session than at their favourite summer hangout? “Canada’s Largest Ribfest”! That’s right, the LARGEST. So fun.
Thanks to beautiful Lila and Chris for such a cool engagement session. Totally up my alley. You guys rock. Next stop for us is their 6pm, candlelit, outdoor wedding ceremony on December 22. Merry Christmas!
