Amber and Pete are nuts! Pete’s job took them to Germany, but before they were going to move they decided to plan their whole wedding in Ottawa, get us to shoot their engagement session and pack and ship all their stuff over to Europe. And that’s exactly what happened! You may remember these two from a really cute engagement session we shot back in September.

So, the day finally came when Amber and Pete, who barely even had a chance to get used to Germany, flew right back home to Ottawa to get married. One thing that saved them I think was the fact that both of them were really chill about everything. They weren’t bothered by the little things and just went with the flow! Which definitely helped with their stress levels and because of that they had enjoyed every moment of the day.

The wedding was held at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary institute in Ottawa. We didn’t know this but they have a really nice restaurant with beautiful interiors and of course, ah-mazing food! Magda and I made use of the gorgeous building inside for some photo opportunities and then we went near the Parliament to take some photos just before sunset.

If you guys need some photographers to fly down to Germany to capture an anniversary…you know who to call! ;) But in the meantime, enjoy your crazy new adventure…you deserve it!

Angela, Chris and their entire family as such incredibly kind and sincere people…it’s almost too sweet and fun to hang out with them (if that’s possible?)! Everything about the day was calm and serene. From the very morning of getting ready nothing was rushed, everyone had a smile on their face, everything was smooth and on time, the weather was just perfect.

The wedding took place at the Lago Bar and Grillon the Dows Lake Pavilion in Ottawa. Not only was this a seriously sweet and intimate wedding, but when we asked Angela to strike a pose…this girl doesn’t hold back! She can honestly drop whatever she’s doing now and pursue a modeling career. Her smile and her love for her husband emanated from every photo we took of them. It was such a pleasure spending the day with them and getting a chance to be a part of their beginning to an incredible journey :)

We hope you love your photos. Enjoy some of our favourites, along with a slideshow at the end!

It’s fantastic how the world turns. One day I’m going to high school with Sophie (who was a grade lower than me at St.Pius X High School in Ottawa, woop WOOP! repre-SENT!) and now Magda and I are photographing her and her infectiously friendly fiance Marty.

These two are genuinely in love. Seriously. And fun! To top it off they really wanted to do something unique with their shoot, so they chose the La Ronde amusement park here in Montreal! We had a lot of interesting scenery to use which is always challenging and exciting.

We can’t wait to shoot their wedding in 2012! Yes, 2012. Sophie likes to plan ahead and we approve :)

Here are a few of our favourite images from the day…

So we recently shot a fabulously gorgeous wedding in Vancouver! Not only was this in one of our favourite cities in Canada but it was for an old friend of mine who I worked with at my first animation job years ago!

Brittany and Chris picked a really classy and beautifully situated golf resort to get married in, Rowena’s Inn on the River at the Sand Piper Golf Club. It was located in Harrison Mills about an hour away from Vancouver and all you had around you was mountains and water. A very cozy and romantic location!

The amazing effort that Brittany put into the day making sure everything and everyone looked their very best really made all the difference. Her little details of type writers, bird cages, boxes, bows were so cute and perfect! She really has a talent for this. And did you know this girl runs her own business and is a hot jewellery designer? Check out her site: www.lovetypeb.com !!! Everyone oozed class and noone was afraid to have as much fun as they could all day long!

And what really struck us was how Brittany and Chris never forgot to remind everyone about their strong faith in God! That was the most important part of their special day…it was really touching.

Thank you all for an amazing time, we enjoyed capturing your wedding! Here are some if our favourites of the day :)

  • sandy stobbe - Dear Magda and Bartek,
    I’m crying right now. You have captured memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you for working so hard that day and using your talent and being a team . When I saw that you had put costumes on during the dance I was so happy because you were having fun as well as working hard.

    I can’t say enough about how much this means to me. I’m so glad you were part of that special day. sandyJune 14, 2010 – 11:14 pmReplyCancel
