Wedding Shenanigans / Behind the Scenes 2017

Now that 2017 is a thing of the past, I though it would be fun to give you a little behind the scenes peek at the wedding season! I am so lucky to work with so many amazing couples, but I am also incredibly grateful to get to work with my second shooter (and husband) Brent! We have developed a great flow to shooting weddings together which results in amazing collections of images AND a few funny outtakes from a wedding day. I figured it would be fun to turn the tables for today and show you some of the background shenanigans that you dont usually get to see!

When you get one shot at a first look, you damn well take a second to test the light at both angles. And, if you are going to take lighting test shots… you might as well try to look good in them! (we don’t always try so hard as you will see in a few other photos)

Brent has become a master of wedding dress hanging. To a normal person this may seem like a useless skill, but not to a wedding photographer! behind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographer

Sometimes a photo bomb is necessary! (Sorry Jeremy!)

Sometimes we share umbrellas with our clients – Thanks for letting me under with you Kathleen! And sometimes we sprint back to the car and grab all the cute umbrellas for our fabulous bridesmaids in the middle of an outdoor ceremony! #BrentToTheRescue (Absolutely nobody wants that fish umbrella in all their ceremony photos!)behind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographer

Although Brent generally know what to expect from life with me, sometimes I still catch him off guard. behind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographerbehind the scenes 2017 Ottawa wedding photographer

Despite some very serious faces… I promise we have a lot of fun!

And then of course there is Brent’s little tea pot dance. No explanation needed I am sure.

Favourite Wedding Photos from 2017

What a year it as been! Now that 2017 has come to an end and there is nothing left to do other than share some of my favourite wedding photos from the year!

Thank you to all the amazing couples chose me to be a part of capturing their love story. Thank you to all my Brides who carefully thought out every little detail, and then sat back and enjoyed every beautiful moment of their wedding day.  Thank you to all my Grooms who trusted that I would make them look cool (even if they felt a little silly) and for sharing in all my sarcastic jokes. Thank you to all the Bridesmaids who carried their Bride’s lipstick, turned ‘fake photo giggles’ into genuine belly laughs, and hustled hard to make the day perfect for their bestie. Thank you to all the venue staff who genuinely cared that our Brides and Grooms enjoyed every moment of their big days. Thank you to all the Groomsmen who kept their Groom relaxed, laughing and on time for the ceremony. Thank you to all the parents who proudly walked their kids down the aisle, shared heart warming and hilarious wedding toasts, and who arrived on time for wedding photos. Thank you to all the wedding planners and day-of-coordinators who kept every detail in check and created wedding days that ran smoothly and beautifully. Thank you every wedding guest who bust serious moves on the dance floor, smiled for cocktail hour photos, and didn’t step into the aisle with their iPhone during the ceremony. Thank you to all the florists, decorators, and bakers who shared their insane talents and gave me so many pretty things to photograph. There a million more things I am thankful for in my 2017 wedding season, but for now, let’s just enjoy some of my favourite photos!

Winter Wonderland Styled Wedding

This stunning winter wonderland styled wedding shoot was so much fun to work on and the entire team was incredible. You might want to get cozy before scrolling through today’s blog post – like warm blanket and hot cocoa kind of cozy! Mother nature really wanted us to have the full Canadian winter experience, so she threw us a not-so-light dusting of snow on the day of the shoot, which just added to the fun.

I am so grateful that these photos was already featured on both Elegant Weddings and Mod Weddings, but I figured it was time to share some of my favorites here as well!
