It’s been a whirlwind start to our wedding season this summer, and we’re beyond happy to share this beautiful Ottawa engagement session with you. We met Jean-Gabriel and his lovely fiance Camille in one of our favourite spots in the Ottawa area. A bit of a drive from the downtown core, but the light and atmosphere was beyond worth it! Whenever we photograph engagement sessions in Ottawa, we really try to limit how many times we use each location every year – we hope our couples appreciate the attention to detail and hours of scouting that sometimes go into finding the perfect spot.
We were driving back from Prince Edward County on the most beautiful summer day (with Bort in tow – our dog, for those who haven’t seen our Instagram stories featuring this little rascal). This little spot near the St. Lawrence River was not only perfectly private but also had the most glorious of backdrops – the trees are so huge and intertwined, it really reminded us of something you’d see in a Nicholas Sparks film. Camille and Jean-Gabriel were hoping for something a bit down-to-earth and rustic to match their wedding vibe, and this spot we shot another lovely couple at fit the bill to a tee.
Camille and Jean-Gabriel were amazing sports during their Ottawa engagement session- even when our pup photobombed a few shots. If a puppy sees happy people running, he’s going to chase them down! We just can’t wait to photograph their big day later this year – planned by Tami Varma. It’s going to be amazing!
