Well here we are. Last week was so wildly beautiful that I still cannot get over it! Karen and Colin had beautiful ceremony at Equita Ranch in Cantley with lush florals, stunning decor, the sweetest of treats and a breathtaking venue.

They started to day off by going to City Hall and getting hitched and then headed to their small ceremony where the shared their vows. We headed into the property for some formals and I COULD NOT be happier with the results!

These two fully deserve the stunning elopement for free not to mention a night’s stay at the venue after all the craziness dies down to simply bask in their story. Shoutout to all of the amazing vendors who came together to make this day possible for our wonderful couple.

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

It gets awesome results and makes couples feel so loved. ⁠ Prompts are used to evoke emotion in photos and among many silly ones, I've got some sweet, intimate ones the remind you that you JUST MARRIED YOUR BEST FRIEND. ⁠ It's all about keeping you busy and comfortable in front of the camera. ⁠ Photographer - @lwimaging⁠ Venue - @alton.mill⁠ Dress - @sindersbridalhouse⁠ Suit/Kilt - @weetartanshop⁠ Shawls - @fergusscottishshop⁠ Florals - @sgflowers.ca⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @ottawaweddingvendors⁠ #OttawaWeddingPhotographer #OttawaWeddingVendors #SFBrides #OttawaPhotographer #ElopementPhotographer #RomancePhotographer #SophieFortierPhotography #OttawaElopementPhotographer #OttawaElopement #LetsElopeOttawa #RomanticWeddingPhotographer #ExperienceOverArt #OrangevilleWedding #AltonMillWedding #TorontoWedding #TorontoWeddingPhotographer #SindersBride #LWImaging #TorontoBride #TO #Toronto #TorontoPhotographer #TorontoWeddings #OntarioWedding #OntarioBusiness #OntarioSmallBusiness #ScottishWedding #MenInKilts #KiltWedding

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.

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
