Nicole and David's Engagment Pavlov Studios was commissioned to photograph the wedding of Krystle back in February 2012.  We are happy to announce that Krystle’s sister, Nicole, has chosen to use our services. The choice of an engagement session package will ensure lasting memories of a monumental occasion. 

Nicole realizes that adding an engagement session to her wedding package provides a great opportunity for the photographer and subjects to bond and create a mutual understanding of the client's expectations.  So by the time the big moment arrives, the couple will have such confidence in the photographer that they will be able to focus 100% on each other.  During the pre wedding shoot the photographer can advise subjects as to their most flattering angles, record totally candid photos, advise proven flattering poses, suggest improvised merriment, and capture people's personalities through the lens.

We suggested the Canadian Museum of Nature as the backdrop for the photo shoot because of its uniquely beautiful setting and as protection from any possible adverse weather conditions.  

We all had such a blast.  Nicole and David were such a pleasure to work with. We are very much anticipating a similar experience in Nicole's celebration.  

I leave you with examples of some of my favourite work from their shoot.

Leah and Delroy's Wedding Getting Ready: Marriott

Ceremony: St. Joseph's Church

Reception: LAGO

The theme of Leah and Delroy's wedding was to lessen the usual formality of this occasion through sports activities, good laughs, and the support of their friends and family.  Upon departing from St. Joseph's Church, Leah, a former member of the uOttawa women's basketball team, and the girls, challenged the guys to a game at the uOttawa gym.  After the game, Delroy, a former Ottawa Redblacks cornerback, invited everyone to the university football field.  After the competition, the raging appetites were sated at the Lago Restaurant.  It was a delight witnessing these events for such an enjoyable group.

Anik and Mel's Engagement It was a treat photographing this super fun couple at the Andrew Haydon Park. From our very first meeting with Anik and Mel , I knew I would enjoy working with them – they are warm, friendly, and so much fun. I just love their connection to each other – how they light up around each other, and how they laugh. We planned this engagement session for the late afternoon. This park has beautiful views of the water and is a great for sunset photographs. The sunset was just gorgeous and I had to say, the ladies were total rock stars. Enjoy a few images from their engagement session and keep your eyes open this September for their wedding photographs.

Nives & Michael's Wedding  
When Nives' final preparation for this special day was completed she met Michael in the lobby of the Chateau Laurier. At the moment their eyes met their warmth and love for each other rose to an ultimate level.
Nives and Michael took full advantage of the brief blooming period of the fragrant cherry tree blossoms as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony. The Ottawa Central Experiment Farm's Arboretum provided such a setting in which to exchange their vows. Upon completion of the ceremony, the couple joined their families and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Social restaurant.

Karen and David's Wedding

One of my favourite parts of my job is hearing how people met and fell in love.

Here is Karen and David’s Love Story:

In the fall and winter of 2010 and into 2011, Karen worked hard at manifesting her dream man. She had reached a point in her life where she was ready to meet “the one” and set upon a quest to attract him to her. Most importantly, he had to be kind and he also had to be respectful, loving, smart, handsome and tall. Every day, Karen would visualize what this special man would look like and be like and she even imagined how she would feel when they met. David, was on a similar path, and had made a new year’s resolution that 2011 would be the year that he would meet his soul mate. Their mutual friend, Susi, felt that they would be very well suited. She played recreational volleyball with Karen and had met David through eHarmony where they quickly discovered that they would make better friends than partners. Susi knew David was a great catch……… for someone else, and she had just the person in mind. She excitedly told Karen about this guy she had met who had thrown her off by wearing hiking boots on their date. Although he obviously required some “work,” she really felt he and Karen would hit it off. Unfortunately, Karen was very busy with her school work and was not in a position to think about dating even though she still imagined her dream man on a daily basis. Three months later, Karen was ready to take the leap into the dating world and she and Susi promptly checked David’s Facebook page to see his relationship status~ still single! On March 26th 2011, with some arranging by Susi, Karen and David met for coffee at Bridgehead. As she anticipated, they were smitten with one another and spent more than two hours talking about all of their outdoor adventures, the places they wanted to visit and of course, their families. Their date ended with a hug and plans to see each other again. Karen remembers feeling giddy and laughing to herself all the way home. She knew she had met someone incredibly special and she was right! David thought Karen was amazing and although excited, he was also very nervous; secretly hoping she felt the same way, too.Several dates followed and by the fourth date, they kissed while on a bike trail overlooking the slalom kayaking course at the Pumphouse near LeBreton Flats.Since then they have enjoyed so many wonderful adventures together from hikes, ski excursions and cabin nights in Gatineau Park, trips west to the Rockies, canoeing and camping trips into Algonquin Park and of course, the adventure of finding their first apartment together and then their first home. There are many memories to reflect upon and so many more yet to come.

Written by Julie Keon

Wishing Karen and David a lifetime of love and laughter!

Karen & David | Engagement Session

Karen and David wanted a relaxed engagement shoot that captured the fun they have together. We met up in the ByWard Market and had a great time creating urban, downtown engagement photos.  After that we headed down to the Major's Hill Park to catch the sunset. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next weekend! Here are some of the favorites…

France and Vernon's Wedding France and Vernon were the kind of couple that you could connect with instantly. Being with them was simply comfortable and allowed me to take some cool pictures. They wanted their wedding to be intimate and unconventional.   First, we went to the Canadian Museum of Nature for the couple’s portraits then enjoyed snapping some impromptu pictures with the entourage.  Wedding photographers often use this setting as it has a unique architectural structure combined with beautiful backgrounds. The day continued with an intimate ceremony at the Historic Chapel at the village of Kenmore. Laughter, love and a friendly atmosphere – it was indeed an awesome wedding. We wish this newlywed couple a lifetime of happiness and smiles.
