Now that Christmas is gone, but the snow is still here to say for another couple of months - most Canadians are now back to thinking about the glory days of summer. And boy was this late-summer shoot the ultimate Canadian experience. Rebecca & Emil took us took a cottage in Quebec where basked in the beautiful forests, fields and the water, had a bonfire, and finished the night off with a sunset swim in the lake. Definitely an evening well spent.
Christmas in Ottawa is a special time. We were fortunate enough to work in partnership with the ByWard Market to showcase some of the reasons people are drawn to the Market during the holiday season. If you still have people to buy gifts for on your shopping list I would suggest stopping by the market and grabbing a hot chocolate or Beavertail and walk through the Christmas trees before making your way into the shops filled with unique and often local gifts. Once your shopping is done, pop in and grab few tacos at El Camino. You won't be disappointed.
If you have the opportunity to get married on a family orchard, you should definitely not pass that up. Rosalind & Jeff's beautiful day is a perfect example of how wonderful it is. They got a tiny bit of rain (just enough to make it lucky, but without dampening any spirits or chairs) and the rest of the evening was spent sipping cocktails beside a peach grove and enjoying the company of family and friends. Also, we highly recommend confetti (and confetti guns), and non-Christmas crackers to be a part of your wedding. Make it a whole confetti party, if you will.
