There are days where I want to give up. Days that I come home from my 9-5 as a product photographer, look at my endless to-do list and I want to quit. I wonder if it's worth it. ⁠Wouldn't it be so much easier to just live off of my 9-5? Not worry about taxes, income, expenses? Not think about the bottom line and how to push my brand above and beyond? To forget that I should invest in my education, the client experience or a website?⁠ At that point, I usually come across a couple who reminds me why I do this. Why I spend all of my free time working and stressing about those things. ⁠ I am reminded that I have something to give to this industry - reassurance to couples. Beautiful photography with an experience that focuses on their relationship. I am reminded that someone trusted me enough to hire me for their wedding photography and that humbles me more than any kind of money someone could throw my way. ⁠ I remember that I get to experience this one of a kind day with people who love each other to the moon and back. I get to be the person who captures their memories their look back on when they're old and wrinkly. ⁠ I get to be a part of their story, and that is why I do what I do. ⁠ ⁠ Wedding & Styled Shoot Planning - @intuitiveevents⁠ Photography - @sophiefortierphoto⁠ Venue - @equitaranch⁠ Videography - @greyloftvideo ⁠ Decor - @celebr8decor⁠ Ceremony Officiant - @thehitchdoctor⁠ Makeup - @prettylittleyoumakeup⁠ Hair - @emmahairstyling⁠ Florals - @plentyofprettyottawa⁠ Cake - @sweetmedesserts⁠ Stationery - @hashtagpaper⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @ottawaweddingvendors⁠ #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #OttawaWeddingVendors #SFBrides #OttawaPhotographer #ElopementPhotographer #RomancePhotographer #SophieFortierPhotography #OttawaElopementPhotographer #OttawaElopement #LetsElopeOttawa #RomanticWeddingPhotographer #ExperienceOverArt #OttawaEntrepreneur #SuportLocal #SupportLocalOttawa #SmallButMighty #SmallBusiness #CantleyWedding #QuebecWeddings #QuebecWeddingPhotographer #HandM #Elope #JustEloped #ottawawedding #justmarried #weddinginspiration #stylemepretty #theknot #ottawaphotographer #ottawaweddings

Can I level with you?⁠ I wasn't always comfortable in my skin. I had major self esteem and image issues up until i was about 18. I was bullied about my weight for most of my life and I never believed I was enough for this world. Not pretty enough, not fun enough, not wild enough, not interesting enough, not skinny enough. ⁠ It got to a point where I decided I didn't want to live my life with such a negative outlook. So I said FUCK it. You don't like me? Don't talk to me. It was so simple and I was unleashed. I started wearing what I liked, doing what I wanted with my life and talking about the things that i loved. ⁠ Don't get me wrong, that process took a solid 4 year of work on rewiring my brain. But by the time, I was 18, I had gotten myself where I needed to be. ⁠ So if you see me strutting down the street, know what I 100% don't give a shit what you think and n part of me is worried about what your opinion is. I am happy and that is all that matters.⁠ ⁠ #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #OttawaWeddingVendors #SFBrides #OttawaPhotographer #ElopementPhotographer #RomancePhotographer #SophieFortierPhotography #OttawaElopementPhotographer #OttawaElopement #LetsElopeOttawa #RomanticWeddingPhotographer #ExperienceOverArt #OttawaBrandingPhotographer #OttawaBranding #BrandingPhotographer #BrandPhotography #BrandBuilding #ProductPhotography #OttawaProductPhotographer #Ottawa #OttawaSmallBusiness #BossBabe #Entrepreneur #OttawaEntrepreneur #SuportLocal #SupportLocalOttawa #SmallButMighty #SmallBusiness

Chalked by Mabz⁠ Mabz is the most down to earth, genuine person I’ve ever met. She studied fine arts at Ottawa U and moved from her small northern town when she fell in love with the capital. With a healthy obsession for Leo Decaprio, the mouth of a sailor and a passion for all the pretty floral designs, it’s no wonder we get along so well. She also started the #BloodyPrick movement which is all about donating blood in Canada. If you want a refreshing, potty mouthed person to follow, go check out her insta. @chalkedbymabz⁠ ⁠ Wedding Planner - @frid.events⁠ Dress - @sindersbridalhouse⁠ Suit - @mooresclothing⁠ Decor + Rentals - @priorengagementsarnprior⁠ @rebeltentsinc⁠ Florals - @frid.events⁠ MUA - @ericawrightmua⁠ Hair - @lesgettogetha⁠ Band - Hillbilly Deluxe⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @ottawaweddingvendors⁠ #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #OttawaWeddingVendors #SFBrides #OttawaPhotographer #ElopementPhotographer #RomancePhotographer #SophieFortierPhotography #OttawaElopementPhotographer #OttawaElopement #LetsElopeOttawa #RomanticWeddingPhotographer #ExperienceOverArt #OttawaBrandingPhotographer #OttawaBranding # BrandingPhotographer #CareltonPlace #CareltonPlaceWedding #CareltonPlacPhotographer #OutdoorWedding #SindersBridalHouse #VintageWedding #CPWedding #CPWeddingPhotographer #CountryWedding #BackyardWedding #FridEvents #FallWedding #CanadaFallWedding #NikonCanada #EssenceOfAustralia

I want to make something very clear - I want you to have the best possible wedding experience. ⁠ If we meet, and you don't think I would be a good fit, that is 100% okay! I and not everyone's cup of tea and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible with your photographer. We spend more time with you than your spouse, so we should be able to get along! ⁠ My hope is that you feel like a friend is with you all day, a friend who just so happens to have a camera in hand to capture all the good things about your wedding. ⁠ If that's not me, I am more than happy to help you find someone reputable to fit the bill. I have heard so many horror stories from couples and I never want that to happen to anyone, so let me help you see the warning signs and find someone who is legitimate. ⁠ ⁠ Photography - @sophiefortierphoto⁠ Venue - @cumberlandbelle⁠ Dress - @revellebridal⁠ Cake - @ediblesins⁠ Hair - @steviebleach from @itsjacquiek⁠ MUA - Jacquie from @itsjacquiek⁠ Stationery - @wishtree_invites⁠ Florals - @capitalfloristott⁠ Models - @f.lo.xo ⁠+ Kevin⁠ ⁠ @Ottawaweddingvendors⁠ ⁠ #Ottawa #CumberlandBelle #OttawaWeddingVenue #RevelleBride #CumberlandWedding #CumberlandPhotographer #2020Wedding #StyledWedding #SpringWedding #CanadianWedding #CanadianWeddingInspo #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #OttawaWeddingVendors #OttawaPhotographer #ElopementPhotographer #RomancePhotographer #SophieFortierPhotography #OttawaElopementPhotographer #OttawaElopement #LetsElopeOttawa #TorontoWedding #TorontoWeddingPhotographer #TorontoBride #TO #Toronto #TorontoPhotographer #TorontoWeddings #OntarioWedding #OntarioBusiness #OntarioSmallBusiness
