It’s quite rare that either Magda or I tear up during the exchange of vows, but when we do, it’s because it touched us. That was the case with Mai and Phil! Their story is an absolutely beautiful one of kindness, acceptance and most of all love and it truly touched us. The day was just as Mai and Phil had perfectly envisioned with everything taking place at the quaint Le Belvedere in the Laurentian hills in Wakefield. It may have rained a little bit in the afternoon, but Mai and Phil’s joy and happiness was so infectious, nothing would get in the way of their happy ending.

Mai and Phil, your love for each other and your little boy is truly inspirational and we wish you a lifetime of happiness. Here is a collection of our favourite moments from your special day. We hope you love them! xoxo, Bartek & Magda

As promised, here is the day after photo session we did with Marta & Greg! Literally the day after their awesome wedding we headed out to a (Yummy) brunch at the Nepean Sailing Club in Ottawa. After filling our bellies with delicious Polish perogies, we walked over to Andrew Haydon Park next door to take some pictures. The sun gave us such pretty light to work with, and combine that with two beautiful people who are in love, and gorgeous scenery, we had the perfect recipe for these photos. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. xox

Being Polish, we’re always thrilled when we get a chance to photograph a very Polish wedding! We were keeping this weekend free as we do every year here and there, but once we met Marta and Greg, we fell in love and absolutely had to be there to capture the day!

Marta and Greg are very sweet, loving and caring people! And the chemistry between them was an absolute joy to witness throughout the day. In addition, it was very special for us because they got married at the same Polish church, in Ottawa as we did 12 years ago! We also took photos of them in the same spot as we had ours taken, in the Experimental Farm and Dominion Arboretum!

To top it all off, we got invited to the all you can eat Polish brunch the next day and did a little day after photoshoot at The Nepean Sailing Club, but those photos will come after! All in all, it was an absolutely fantastic weekend and we’d like to thank Marta and Greg for having us there to capture their love. We know you’ll have many beautiful years of happiness together and we hope you love these photos as much as we loved taking them.

Kristy and Jackson contacted us last year after seeing our work we did of some of their friends weddings. Since then, we’ve hung out with them not only at their engagement photos in Ottawa’s Byward Market, but also at a wedding where Jackson was in the bridal party! We develop special relationships with our couples already, so when we get a chance to see them before their own wedding, it makes it even more special. That’s the case with Kristy and Jackson.

Fast forward to the summer of 2016, and we’re in at Le Belvedere in Wakefield, overlooking the Outaouais hills at their wedding. The venue is truly beautiful. With a view to die for, an outdoor ceremony area, patio and a gorgeous cottage where the couple can spend a night. Kristy and Jackson’s nature themed wedding, complete with their fluffy puppy Yoyo was really beautiful. From the tea ceremony all the way to the games at the sun kissed Le Belvedere, we couldn’t have asked for better setting. Thank you both for having us capture your special day, and we hope you love our hand picked favourites of the day! Click below to see even more in the slideshow.
