I heard this song the other day and I realize it’s supposed to be about people, but it really spoke to me about rescuing.
I created a video using this beautiful song by Christina Perri to spread the word about rescues and adoption. Take a look here, and please share. There are so many amazing dogs who are still looking for their family.
I will be launching a new website very soon which will be a personal project by me to spread the word about rescues. Please check out be-loved.ca soon.
All images in this video were taken by me, and each of them is a rescued dog. It’s not an easy journey, but it is worth every step.
This video features: our own dog, Wellie, as well as Penny, Charly, Barley, Willow, Newman, Millie, Jazz, Bailey, Tina, Scruffy, Percy, Aura, Blaze, Eclipse, Sahara, Kobalt, Nakia, Skye, Layla, Dolly and Lexi.
Have a wonderful day,
I love Lego, always have and probably always will. I love hearing about couples’ proposal stories and this one is super amazing.
Thomas and I got engaged in our home – it was simple and sweet and perfectly us. I think it’s so wonderful when the proposal is infused with who the couple is, and I think I can tell what kind of awesomesauce people these two are from this video.
It took the groom over 30 hours to create this but I think the result is stellar. I also ADORE the fact that Han Solo frozen in carbonite is officiating the Lego wedding ceremony. If that isn’t WINNING, I don’t know what is!
Have a wonderful day,
This is VW’s SuperBowl commercial for this year and I just adore it. It brings two of my loves together; dogs and Star Wars!
Have a wonderful day,
This has been a project months in the making. This summer I set out to have a promotional video made of myself. I had the pleasure of working with my favourite Ottawa wedding videographer, Jeff from Equivocality, for not only Genevieve and James‘ wedding this summer, but also for Vikki and Dan‘s wedding this fall. He is an amazing person to work alongside and I knew he was the one I wanted to create this video for me.
Special thanks to Tiffany & Phil, Elizabeth & Cooper and Genevieve & James for helping to make this video amazing – I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for allowing Jeff to tag along and film our sessions together – it really does mean the world to me!
You’ll learn some pretty great things about this video:
- I shoot with my glasses on (4 eyes of the world unite!)
- I attract dogs from miles around (and totally love it)
- Thomas and I have some awesome dance skills
And without further adieu, my promo video!
The fantastic and adorably cute song in this video is by Mindy Gledhill. You should definitely check her out – I really love her stuff and am so happy I was able to find it for my video.
And now for some images captured during the making of this video.
First up are Tiffany and Phil and their stunning fall engagement session. These two got engaged in Gatineau Park so it was fitting to have their engagement session at Mackenzie King Estates in Gatineau Park. The fall colours were absolutely perfect and it was so beautiful.
Tiffany and Phil are getting married next fall and I cannot wait for their wedding!!
Next up is the adorable Cooper and his favourite human, Elizabeth.
Cooper is a golden doodle and at the time of our session this fall, he was 5 months old and VERY bouncy. We had the session at Bruce Pit Park and made lots of friends while having a wonderful time.
Nom nom nom…
Last but definitely not least is Genevieve and James. You may remember from their wedding that Genevieve’s hair was blonde. I asked her and James to get all dolled up once again in their wedding attire and they were so wonderful about it. We had such a fun time around City Hall and found some beautiful trees to photograph under. I just adore the colours in these images.

Vu from Cloud in the Sky Studio
Cloud in the Sky Studio was at Rouge Ottawa taking (proper) video and helping to co-ordinate the event.
Unfortunately the video interview with Vu was compromised due to low lighting and my little ol flip camera just couldn’t cut it. Vu talked about how his team was at Rouge Ottawa as the paparazzi documenting the event as well as outlined some really interesting wedding packages they can provide to couples in the Ottawa area.
Because my video didn’t turn out, I want to feature one BY Cloud in the Sky Studios to show how awesomesauce they are.

Isobel from Bel Bridal
Isobel from Bel Bridal talked to us about what she thinks this year’s big jewellery trends are going to be.
Again, the lighting was just not cool for this video so I’ll sum up what Isobel and I talked about. I asked her what she though the trends for this year’s bridal jewellery would be and she said: GO BIG! Be bold and daring and have fun with it!
