Red wine engagement session at Breather in the Byward Market: Paul and Jaimie

I’ve known Paul since elementary school and I love him to bits. A year older than me, he was my intro to everything high school. Yep, underage drinking, parties, and hanging with the cool kids. He kinda felt like that big brother I never had in those early days…even though I was probably already taller than him at that point. And even after we lost touch, he was still that familiar face at parties, always happy to see each other.

If you had told me back than that I’d be photographing his wedding, I probably wouldn’t have believed it. I also wouldn’t have believed I’d be a photographer – that sounds like way too cool of a job (I still feel that way sometimes!). But here we are. And I am so happy that Paul has found his lady love. Jaimie is so sweet, has a great sense of humour, and loves her red wine. Amen, sista. Life is too short for shitty red wine.

Jaimie liked the idea of having a super laid back engagement session, where they would drink wine and cuddle up on the couch. Since doing it at home didn’t feel like an option, they did their red wine engagement session at Breather in the Byward Market.

It’s the cutest space. And thank god for it, because it started raining HARD (are you surprised, given the weather we’ve had?!), just as I parked. I sat in the car for a while (early, of course), just to see if it let up a bit. It didn’t.

In case it could get any better, the weather improved so we were able to head outside for a little cruise in the Byward Market.
