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!

I’ve seen some of the most astounding celebrations the world has to offer and, unfortunately, some of the most panicked brides when something went wrong.  The truth is that there is always a chance something is forgotten or someone is late, but there are plenty of ways […]
