These two are so cute, I couldn’t help smiling all day long! The day started off with everyone getting ready, excitement and anticipation filling the air. Off to the ceremony in Old Chelsea (where the groom grew up), they had an intimate ceremony at Saint Stephen’s Parish.

There was one place where they absolutely wanted to do their bridal portraits; the Wakefield covered bridge. Having spent the better part of my summers in that area at my late grandmother’s cottage, I knew it was the PERFECT location for them. We ended up bribing a local man (asking him politely) to let us use his stairs and dock that had THE best angle for the bridge. Cue the romance and whispered secrets that make my job oh-so-easy. 

Their reception was held at Camp Fortune where everyone celebrated the couple in style. Meaghan and Matthew made a big impression on their guests with the first dance; they had it choreographed. I was told there were the kind of people who ruled the dance floor and never got off. Boy was that true! These two know how to party and I couldn’t be more humbled to have been a part of their big day! 

I had a blast shooting this wedding with Josie Nicole Photography. Thank you for having us!

“Sophie was great to work with! She was thoughtful and dependable and went above and beyond to get some spectacular shots of our day. So much so, she asked a stranger if we could use his dock for our formal shots (which turned out amazing). We have so many great shots of the day, I have trouble picking out my favourites. She was quick at answering all my emails and was easy to work with. Thanks again Sophie!”

There's just something about yellow that makes me happy.

I have been fully converted to the life of scrunchies. They save my curls with soft and gentle fabrics and they actually hold my hair much better than an elastic. ⁠ You KNOW your girl has tried anything and everything when it comes to hair ties. Those spiral plastic ones ripped the hair out of my head and didn't hold their shape, the thick black ones from the drug store were worse, leaving constant strain on my curls and clips are just never big enough. ⁠ @laanilife makes the beauties featured in this shot, and her silk line is definitely my fave! The best part about them is that I can wear a bun or pony for most of the day and then let my hair down later without worrying about flattened curls from hash elastics. Plus, look at how cute that little gold leather detail is! ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @Ottawaweddingvendors⁠ #SophieFortierPhotography #Scrunchie #OttawaBrandingPhotographer #OttawaBranding #BrandingPhotographer #BrandPhotography #BrandBuilding #ProductPhotography #OttawaProductPhotographer #Ottawa #OttawaSmallBusiness #BossBabe #Entrepreneur #OttawaEntrepreneur #SuportLocal #OttawaBusiness #SupportLocalOttawa #SmallButMighty #SmallBusiness #ScrunchieLife #YOWBossBabe #CreateCultivate #FemaleCEO #bBusinessInHeels #BrandingMyself #PersonalBrand #FemaleFounded #DreamersAndDoers #WomenWithAmbition #EntrepreneurSpirit

Your timeline can make or break your wedding day. The difference between a good and bad timeline means being able to spend time with the people you’ve invited to the wedding vs spending it stressed and missing out on precious cocktail hour appetizers. Let me walk you through my ideal timeline as a photographer. ⁠ ⁠ 12:00 -1:00 - Bridal Prep Portraits⁠ 1:00 - 2:00 - First Look + Couple Formals⁠ 2:00 - 2:30 - Bridal Party Formals⁠ 3:00 - Bride and Groom arrival / Ceremony Details⁠ 3:30 - 4:00 - Ceremony⁠ 4:30 - 4:45 - Family Formals⁠ 4:00 - 5:00 - Cocktail hour⁠ 5:00 - 7:00 - Dinner⁠ 7:30 - 8:00 - Golden Hour Formals ⁠ 8:00 - 8:15 - First Dances⁠ 8:15 - 8:30 - Cake Cutting⁠ 8:30 - 10:00 - Open Dance Floor⁠ ⁠ Now, this is MY ideal timeline as a vendor. However, this is YOUR wedding and you should make the ultimate decision based on what’s important to you. It’s okay if you don’t want to do a first look, or if you want a longer ceremony. There is nothing preventing you from choosing not to do a first look and sticking to tradition. The idea that there is a right or wrong way to do a timeline is ludicrous but I urge you to consider the vendors you’re hiring. I am always more than happy to build a timeline that makes sense for each and every couple. It also gives me a better sense as to what is most important to you - so I can capture it more thoroughly throughout the day. ⁠ ⁠ Venue - @beantownranch⁠ Dress - @davidsbridal⁠ Suit - @moores⁠ Florals - @stoneblossomfloralgallery⁠ Hair - @emmashairstyling⁠ MUA - @prettylittleyoumakeup⁠ Shoes - @lechateaux⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @Ottawaweddingvendors⁠ #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 #BeanTownWedding #SummerWedding

Does your SO do anything that drives you insane? Maybe they snore, or chew loudly. Are they a bed hogger, pillow stealer or tooth picker?⁠ ⁠ Everyone has those little things they can't help but be annoyed with, but what I can do on your wedding day is remind you of all the things you love about them. The smell of their cologne, the way their eyes crinkle when you laugh at them, the feel of their hand in yours, or the sounds of their heartbeat. ⁠ ⁠ Let me remind you of why you chose this person to spend the rest of your life with, and forget those annoyances. It would be my pleasure. ⁠ ⁠ 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
