I'm a wedding photographer based in Ottawa Ontario, but travels word wild. My photography approach is intentional, honest and editorial. An organic approach to capture fleeting moments. This blog lives to inspire your wedding photos and provide photo advice and wedding planning tips.
Fatima and Daniel joined me to get some updated cute couples photos. We ventured around downtown Ottawa and had such a great time! They wanted a laid-back, 90’s vibe, so we planned everything out in advance and then just chilled around town while the sun went down!
Fatima and Daniel are souls after my own heart! They met a long time ago, and then reconnected at a cottage party and got together. They love fried rice, watching anime, and do bubble tea dates. They’re both students but feel like old souls.
When I asked why they wanted to do a shoot with me, Fatima said, “We’d like photos that when we hang them, we can see how happy and in love we were and will always be. :)”
Because they wanted a chill vibe for their shoot (and prints to hang up), we planned a bit in advance. We came up with a special location for them, went through and picked out their fave comfy outfits, and talked about the process and what to expect.
I always recommend couples do some photos before their wedding so they can have a different vibe, and also realize how fun it can be. Couples sessions are just SO much fun, because there’s no pressure! You get to just be yourselves, go to a favourite spot, and have an adventure with your fave third wheel (me!).
