maria & dmitry | wilson carbide ruins | ottawa wedding photographer

Every once in a while conditions are perfect. 
Perfect lighting, a stunning location, all the time I need and two beautiful people completely smitten with each other. Dmitry and Maria were married in a small backyard wedding in Toronto at Dmitry's parents home. But since Ottawa/Gatineau is where they live, they decided on doing their wedding portraits here. This was my first time exploring the Wilson Carbide Trail in Gatineau Park and I was completely blown away.

forest school

"We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake. And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves." Robert R. McCammon.
