This was a such a beautiful engagement session in the Byward Market! Alyssa and Phil were absolute naturals, I had a great time wandering through the downtown core with them and enjoying the evening.

I have actually known Alyssa for over ten years now. We went to high school together, and then took the same program at Carleton University. In fact, I’m fairly certain that during our 4-year undergrad we only had 2 or 3 courses that we weren’t together for. It’s fair to say there were countless essay-writing sessions spent in the MacOdrum Library. Man, time flies.

I was absolutely thrilled when Alyssa and Phil reached out to see if I could photograph their fall wedding. They shared some more of their wedding plans with me and I am so excited for it. I know it will be an incredible day; these two deserve it.
