Amber & Michael's Ottawa Engagement Photos by Joey Rudd Photography

A few weeks ago I got to spend the evening with this fun couple. For their engagement photos we went to downtown Ottawa near Chateau Laurier and Major's Hill Park, followed by some photos by the locks at sunset. It was an incredibly beautiful evening and was accentuated by this beautiful couple (and Amber's incredible shoes!). On top of it being a lovely time, we also had a lot of fun. It is hard not to when lightsabers become part of the equation!

PWPC (Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada) Spring 2018 Contest

Last night I got home from a session to some exciting news. I was ranked 8th best photographer in Canada in the Spring contest of the PWPC (Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada). I was also the highest ranked photographer from Ottawa!

PWPC, Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada, Wedding Photographer, Canada, Ottawa, Best Photographer, Best Wedding Photographer, Ottawa Wedding

This was my first time submitting to this esteemed contest so I didn't really know what to expect as far as results were concerned. The judges use a points system based on how your photos rank in the contest to give you an overall ranking among other amazing photographers across Canada. There are so many incredibly talented and creative photographers in this contest and I am honoured to be recognized among them in this way!
It was fun to look through the photos that won and find 8 of my photos! We actually claimed 4 of the top 15 in the Bride and Groom Category and 3 of the top 15 in the Bridal Party (including 2nd Place!) as well as 3rd place in the Ceremony Category!
But enough blogging, here are the winning photos.

Feyona & Steven's Wedding at the Ottawa Marriott by Joey Rudd Photography

Earlier this month, Feyona & Steven were married at the Ottawa Marriott in downtown Ottawa. The day was full of happy family, great friends, and incredible memories. Feyona & Steven tied the knot in the Cartier Room, literally surrounded by their best friends and the reception was held in the Victoria Ballroom, with a quick trip in between to the Supreme Court of Canada for some photos. It was a fun day and I was so happy to play a part in it! Here are some photos from their day.

Paola & Ricardo's Intimate Wedding in Ottawa by Joey Rudd Photography

Paola & Ricardo were married on a windy day in April. Freezing rain and snow were in the forecast, but nothing would stop these two from getting married outside in among the trees at the Arboretum. Ricardo's mother and sister even came all the way from Mexico for the special event! Keith from Exceptional Ceremonies performed the official ceremony and then the three of us hiked through the park for some photos of the two of them. It was wonderful to celebrate with these two in such an intimate way!

Shoot and Share Photo Contest

Every year, I submit some photos to an international contest called Shoot and Share. This year there were 412,379 photos submitted to the contest (yeah, that's half of a million)!
In a contest this large I submit mostly just for fun, and enjoy seeing many other beautiful photos and don't expect to rank too high overall. However, this year, I was excited to see that I had 17 images in the top 20% including 9 in the top 10% and 5 finalists!
Below I have shared the 5 finalist, all of which are double exposures. To be honest, most of the photos I submitted to the contest were double exposures.

Michelle & Kurt's Intimate Wedding by Joey Rudd Photography

Whenever a couple invites me into their life to document as intimate an event as their wedding I am honoured. When said event is in their home with only a handful of friends and family present I feel even more honoured to be trusted to be there. This was the case with Michelle and Kurt and their beautifully private wedding inside their home in Ottawa a couple of weeks ago. Their incredibly lovely home, with it's roof-top terrace was the perfect place for their intimate wedding. Here are a few photos from their day.

Marilyne and Maël's Elopement Wedding by Joey Rudd Photography

Marilyne and Maël were married with at their home in an intimate ceremony a couple of weeks ago in Ottawa. Before their "elopement" ceremony we headed downtown for some photos of the happy couple. I had a wonderful time with this fun couple the morning of their wedding day, hiking around Ottawa and marching through the snow.
For those willing to brave the cold, like this couple, winter can be an amazing time of year to tie the knot (or for photos of any kind in general)!
Here are a few from their wedding photo shoot.

Lysa & Alex's Winter Wedding at GreyHawk Golf Club by Joey Rudd Photography

Last month two amazing people finally tied the knot on a beautiful, snowy, winter day. There was so much joy at this wedding. From the excitement of seeing each other to the excitement of how much snow was falling, there was no masking the happiness of this couple. It was truly an honour to celebrate with them on this momentous occasion! After a lovely prep time at the auspicious Pygmalion Spa on Somerset, Lysa made her way to GreyHawk Golf Club where she and Alex were married surrounded by their closest friends and family. I am excited to share these beautiful photos from their even more beautiful day! Congratulations to the king and queen! #queenandkingham #royalwedding

Preview of Lysa & Alex's Ottawa Wedding by Joey Rudd Photography

On Saturday I got to celebrate with this amazing couple as they tied the knot. Their wedding was beautiful and full of joy and excitement. Lysa's excitement as she came down the aisle was unmatched except by Alex watching as she approached.
The day started at the beautiful Pygmalion Spa on Somerset and ended at the grand GreyHawk Golf Club. The already lovely day was perfected with the snow.
I had so much fun capturing these moments on such an exciting day! Here are a few preview photos from their day!
