"Where In Ottawa" is a blog series featuring the best locations to have for your wedding or engagement photo sessions. For each post of this series, we will pick a spot, outline some of the highlights and challenges using the location, and show some photos we've shot for inspiration!
Ottawa's Dominion Arboretum is probably one of the most popular places for engagement session. It is beautiful no matter the season, and it is vast, and it is easy to find a nice spot away from bystanders. These photos of Malissa and James were taken at the tail-end of fall last year. You can see that the branches are no longer full of leaves, which gave some pretty unique and moody photos, which will be a nice contrast to their summer wedding photos. As with many engaged couples, Malissa and James were a bit nervous for this shoot at first, but with a bit of a warm up in front of the camera, they quickly got comfortable! I am looking forward to photographing these two on their wedding day.
