Welcome to our blog where we share everything from recent weddings and engagements, to our amazing adventures as a family of four. When we aren’t photographing weddings, our family is traveling the world, decorating our new home in Ottawa, Ontario or snuggled up watching movies with our basset hound, Georgia. We love working with joyous couples and absolutely cannot wait to tell your story!

It was love at first sight for Jessy and Melinda. Melinda shares their love story below:
Jessy walked into the gym one day wearing neon green shorts; I spotted him as I was climbing on the stair machine, and he spotted me, too. In his words, “The sun was beaming down on you like an angel.” His friend left a note with the front desk with his Instagram handle and a note that said, “Jessy has a school boy crush on you.” The rest is history. The proposal was December 30. I was blindfolded and brought to the rooftop of Brookstreet Hotel. I was greeted with 30 dozen roses lining an aisle with fairy lights, an arch full of pictures of us throughout the years and gold foil letter balloons that said, ‘MARRY ME’. Despite being blindfolded, my brain did not register what was happening and I cried instantly when I saw Jessy standing at the end waiting for me.
