Today was a beautiful afternoon. It is a rare day like today, that temporarily tricks your mind into thinking that living in a city with this type of climate, is a good idea. Since we were blessed with such a beautiful day, it would have been a waste if we weren't outside enjoying it in some fashion. For me, today involved an engagement photo session with Stacy, Terry and Corona (Australian Shepard Mix...I think). I always get a bit tense meeting new people because of my awkward social skills, but luckily I married Heidi and she makes that whole process easy. It's not like I am not social, but I tend to build up all this anxiety for absolutely no reason. Regardless, even though Heidi is just carrying a bag, she in fact is doing a lot more. Originally we were going to head to Andrew Hayden Park, but today our adventure brought us to Hog's back falls. For some reason, I had never really been here to take photographs. I am glad we did because this place is beautiful; credit goes to Stacy and Terry for choosing this location. I had a really amazing time, and got some great photographs in the process. The key to great photographs are great subjects who are willing to have a little fun and get a little silly. Thanks Stacy and Terry for accepting every idea I had and sorry you got wet and cold in the process. In the end I think it was worth it, here are some of my favourites...
ottawa wedding photography
I photographed Tanya and Doug's wedding on my birthday. It was a half day in a old style bed and breakfast. It was called the Perth Manor; a real nice building with lots of character. Apparently lots of artists in the area use it for fashion shoots and some films. I also met the owner, who was a very passionate chef who really cares about his food.
This was definitely the nicest group of people I have met, and not just the wedding party. Perhaps it was a smaller group then I usually see at a wedding, but I was treated very well and everyone was very friendly with me. The best thing, was when the news leaked that it was my birthday, everyone got up and sang me happy birthday. Tanya is also my accountant, and I highly recommend her if you need great advice on how to run your books. I really have no clue and she has been really patient with my zillion questions. Anyhow, just another thank you for my wife Heidi for always helping me out with my photoshoots.
