Ottawa wedding shows you should attend!

We love wedding shows! We go to a few every year as exhibitors where we get to meet so many excited couples planning their wedding celebration. In our previous blogs, we've talked about great reasons why you should attend wedding shows and we provided you with tips on how to make the most out of it! In this blog, we will give you a rundown of 5 wedding shows in Ottawa that you should definitely check out! One has already passed, but several more are on the way. When Michael and I were planning our wedding, attending these wedding shows really helped us narrow down our vendors so in this blog I'll give you a quick preview of each one, based on the size, number of vendors, location, and overall general vibe so that you can decide which one is right for you!

What a fantastic wedding to kick start 2019!

We had the remarkable honour of capturing Jill and Donny's wedding at Saunders last summer. If the amount of fun we had frolicking with their adorable pup Ruby around Bruce Pit for their engagement session was any indication, we knew we would have a blast capturing their big day! Jill and Donny are such genuinely nice people with personalities that draw you in. They share a love for travelling, for Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, and for animals.

How many hours of photography coverage do you actually need?

One of the things my husband and I struggled with when we were planning our wedding last year was trying to determine how many hours of photography coverage we actually need! Our wedding had a tea ceremony, had numerous locations, and had a medium size guest list that might require some wrangling for family photos. Trying to pin down whether we wanted 8 hours or 10 hours, or more was a bit of struggle at first. This is a common issue that many couples planning their wedding face. Well, worry no more! In this article, we will go over with you a typical wedding day and help you determine how much photography coverage you might need as you plan your big day!
