September 2013 was where it all began for them. Serena & Alex met during their first undergrad year at the University of Ottawa. In Serena’s words, “they found chemistry in chemistry” (seriously, HOW CUTE is that)! Fast forward to the present; they now have been together for almost six years, have finished/are finishing up graduate and professional degrees, and are now just a couple of months away from their wedding.
It was such a joy to finally get to meet Serena and Alex in person for their engagement session. The moment we read their first email we could tell that these two had such a deep and passionate love for each other. As we got to know them throughout the session, it was obvious that their love wasn’t just present in the words they had written, but also in the way they carried themselves and how they treated each other with such admiration, kindness, and respect. Serena said, “we count our lucky stars that we found eternal love with one another at such a young age.”
(Honestly, every email or text I’ve received from Serena is filled with emotion and so much of her beautiful soul, it’s so hard not to love her and see love through her eyes.)
Serena and Alex, we have loved every moment getting to know you two! We are so happy that you two have found a true partner in each other. We cannot wait for your wedding, but more importantly, we can’t wait for you to be married. To spend the rest of your lives together. To continue to make memories and share your beautiful hearts with the family you’ll create in the future.

Meet Felicity and Brady!
We were so excited to FINALLY take their engagement photos. We had set date after date because the weather just kept letting us down. They wanted their session in the snow…but it just kept raining
…in January and February (ugh global warming!)
There was supposed to be a snow storm the day before, except a lot of it melted the day of (LOL FAIL). But it didn’t stop us! We hiked into the forest despite the wind and -20 degree weather and ended up with a session full of laughter and genuine candids! From trying to balance on the frozen creek to trying to get her beautiful horse to pose, we had a blast! These two are the most laid back and adventurous couple. We originally planned to have their tent set up for camping photos and threw in the idea to take pictures with their dirt bikes – which didn’t end up happening at all, but their fun and spontaneous personalities were so evident just by being with them!
Quotes worth mentioning:
1. “Can I hold your legs, I promise I’m not harassing you. I just don’t want to fall.”
2. Me: What’s your horse’s name?
Felicity: Because she’s….grey.
(lololol i thought she was going to say graceful haha!)
3. Me: Brady, make her laugh.
Brady: Uhm…..I think she’s better at making me laugh.
Felicity: Yeah I’m so funny I make myself laugh. I’m so great.
We had a blast, Felicity & Brady! We can’t wait for your 2018 spring wedding!
