This year I had the honour of capturing the wedding of my friends Olenka and Josh. Their day was filled with great candid moments amongst family and friends - it made my job of documenting the occasion feel easy! Most of the day's events took place on the outskirts of Ottawa, in the township of Russell. Both the ceremony and reception were held at Olenka and Josh's beautiful farm house - an intimate setting for such a special celebration.
While guests trickled in for the ceremony, Olenka, Josh and I escaped to a nearby forest to capture their first look. We made some time for a few portraits of the two of them before heading back to the ceremony site. Everyone was patiently waiting, including Josh's family dog who got to walk him down the aisle... how's that for the tables being turned!?
Later on, Olenka's band, Amos the Transparent, had the special task of serenading guests during cocktail hour. They were excellent!
This was definitely one of my favourite weddings to photograph; I hope my friends will enjoy the images for years to come.
