Going back to my hometown to shoot is always a little more special. Not only that, but Anne is an old friend from college and I was flattered she asked me to capture the day. I was back in Ottawa earlier this summer to shoot their lifestyle / engagement session in the downtown and Parliament Hill area, needless to say, I was excited to get back. This Ottawa barnyard wedding on her parent's farm was exactly what you think it would be, old-school, straight up party inside a beautiful and vintage barn. The documentary and fine art photography aspect of my job seems a little bit easier when I'm around familiar, although I usually immerse myself with my subjects the hazy, nostalgic like images I got throughout the evening were more accurate than they were intentional... maybe I'll be lucky enough get to shoot a few more weddings in Ottawa next year.
Farm , wedding , dramatic weather and pure candid emotion, what more could I ask for?
