I met Mélanie and Carl for the first time when they made the trek into Ottawa for their engagement shoot, just 6 weeks before their wedding day. Right off the bat, I felt an immediate connection; our groan-worthy puns and hilariously awful jokes were the source of non-stop giggles and smiles. I realized very quickly it was impossible to take a bad photo of these two. The whole day was an absolute blast; bonding over our mutual Swedish heritage early morning at Carl’s parents' house, listening to the incredibly talented piano-playing bridesmaids with Mélanie, and the most intense and electric dance party I’ve seen in a very long time.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the day!
