Sofia & Anthony – Ottawa Great Gatsby Wedding

Wedding portrait at Chateau Laurier in downtown Ottawa.

We blogged about Natasha and Will’s wedding and how much fun we had capturing their big day last year. So we were really excited when Natasha’s sister, Sofia, contacted us about covering their wedding day as we knew it would be another fantastic experience with this great family.

The wedding ceremony was  held at St. Anthony of Padua Church followed by fun photos in downtown Ottawa around Rideau Canal and Chateau Laurier with the energetic wedding party. We finally headed to Centurion Center where the black & gold Great Gatsby-themed wedding reception was being held.

Congrats Sofia and Anthony and thanks for having us! We had an absolute blast.

Melissa & Ryan – Experimental Farm Engagement

Ottawa experimental farm Spring engagement session.

Ottawa Spring Engagement by Kandid Weddings

Spring time in Ottawa is absolutely fantastic for outdoor engagement sessions. It’s a small window of opportunity with the short-lived mild weather and ephemeral backdrop of colorful blossoms. With a little planning and luck though, you can capture really dreamy photos like the ones we shot with Melissa, Ryan, and their adorable dog, Cooper, at the  Central Experimental Farm. We had a great time and came away with many instant faves. What fun!

A few of our favorites…

Chantale & Tom – Downtown Ottawa Engagement

Downtown Ottawa E-Session | Kandid Weddings

We met Chantale and Tom on a breezy Spring day for their photo session in downtown Ottawa. They wanted some cool unique photos for their wedding invitations so we decided to do a photo-shoot before their actual engagement session. We chose the area around Chateau Laurier  and Rideau Canal as our backdrop given its nice classic architecture. 400 shots and many laughs later, we called it a wrap.

Can’t wait for Chantale and Tom’s wedding at the Eighteen later this year.
