As many of you may know, I got married this summer in Ottawa. There are a lot of exciting (albeit stressful) things that come with planning a wedding. If I’m being honest here, one of the most exciting parts was that my brother and his fiance would be coming home for a full week. A few years ago, much to my disapproval, these two moved across the country to Calgary, Alberta. Although it has sucked not having them around, they’re having the time of their lives out West, and I couldn’t be happier for them.
In a little less than a year, these two will be tying the knot in Jamaica!! A few days before my wedding, we ventured out to an abandoned house in Carleton Place where we did their engagement session. **Side note: it was one of the HOTTEST days of the year here in Ottawa. I believe the temperature reached 41 degrees Celsius with the humidex … and we decided that it wasn’t too hot for this shoot. Let’s just say that we drank a ton of water and sweat more than we thought was humanly possible!
Here are some of my favourites from the day.
For any of you who are curious as to how I created the final image – it is actually a combination of 14 different images, using the Brenizer Method. According to Brett’s Calculator, this image is the equivalent of using a focal length of 23mm and an aperture of 1.3.
I cannot wait for their wedding in Jamaica next year. Keep your eyes peeled for their wedding photos next December!
Have a great day!
