Ottawa Engagement Photography Session: Abelle photographie


Don’t they look like a royal couple?

This awesome couple found me through Fearless Photographers’


Loosely inspired by Jerry Ghionis.


My favourite time of the year.

So they took me out to historical Perth, Ontario, about an hour away from Ottawa. With my GPS set properly I made it there ahead of time. I’m new to the province and am falling in love with rural Ontario. The places I get to discover during my travels to photograph couples, babies, bellies and families are exciting and eye opening. I feel like Wayne Rodstad from On the Road Again. 🙂 Back to the photo shoot…





Historical Perth, Ontario.

















This couple has an eye for photography and came prepared with inspirational images and a mood board to our first meeting. So when we took advantage of the first warm day of Spring to shoot this engagement session, I knew we were in for a treat. It was the greatest. We worked together to get the vision right. The light was a-we-some. Everywhere we went it was nirvana. The light was direct and contrasty at times or soft and diffused at other moments and always perfectly placed. Then we had a short period of time to play with awesome natural backlight. It felt like I was playing with clay and got to do what I wanted. I think I may have heard the heavens signing… Seriously, in my life as a photographer, it is all about great light and great people. Here, I had both!
