leanne + mahmoud | backyard elopement photographer in ottawa

I'm often asked if I get tired of shooting weddings after 8 years and 9 wedding seasons. The photos you'll be scrolling through today are just one of the reasons that my answer is a resounding no! 

Each celebration is different, each couple is different, and my job as I see it is to find those points of differentiation and articulate them on the screen. One day I could find myself in a sea of 500 guests, and the next, in a private backyard where two people would exchange vows, rings, and donuts. I am forever grateful for the couples who choose to invite me to document their celebrations, big or small -- and it's my personal pleasure to share a few favourites from a recent elopement for Leanne and Mahmoud, who definitely fit into that category of small. 

With just a handful of friends, myself, and their officiant Keith, Leanne and Mahmoud started the next chapter of their lives as husband and wife. And so the adventure begins...























Gorgeous hairstyling by Suzanne from Showpony!



Even an elopement deserves a gorgeous bouquet! This stunner comes from my partner in crime, Pollen Nation Floral Studio!













Congratulations Leanne & Mahmoud!! Thank you so much for welcoming me into your intimate celebration -- and cheers to the next chapter!
