Commercial and interior photography assignements can be really fun and creatively stimulating. When we photograph people, technical skills and lighting are important, but the interaction with our client is the key to a great image. It is our job as a photographer to make the client look and feel comfortable in front of the lens to produce an image that they will love. When we do commercial photography… the challenge is in the lighting, the composition and the choice of lens. Photographing interiors is not easy. Factors to consider are: the time of day, extra lighting (flashes in hidden spaces to brighten up dark areas or to add texture), the choice of lens (a 200 mm for details, big open spaces with a 50 mm , smaller spaces with a wide angle), bracket exposure, height of the camera, vertical and horizontal lines, post processing, etc. Taking the time to do it right is the key. Here are a few images taken to showcase the talents of the designers and custom cabinets makers at Deslaurier in Ottawa.

This lovely couple tied the knot last fall. The day started on the Ontario side at both their home and parents home. The wedding was held at the “Paroisse St-Jacques” on Notre Dame Street, in Embrun,Ontario. This is a very majestic church in the middle of a small village that looks amazing visually, especially on photos!!! After the church wedding, we crossed over to the Quebec side to make our way to the Chateau Montebello. We love photographing weddings at Montebello. The scenery, the river, the marina, the chateau, the iconic fireplace, la maison Papineau, the stables, the trails in the woods… you name it, they have it. Let’s not forget to mention the staff at the hotel, always friendly and very helpful. The evening was filled with heartfelt speeches, lot’s of laughter, amazing family and friends and lot’s of dancing!!!
To Mauranne and Marc: It was a privilege to record the events of your wedding day! You are truly beautiful and we wish you the best in the new chapter of your lives together. May these wedding photos help keep the memories of your day alive and we hope you enjoy them for years to come!
Life’s little miracles. We put together two photo sessions for you to look enjoy; the maternity session and the new born session. Whether you get just the new born session or the “New parent’s Special” that includes three session, we recommend you come for the newborn photo session during the second or third week (a newborn’s umbilical cord stump typically falls off within about two weeks after birth). During the consultation, we provide you with a lot of information that will prepare you for this baby session.

At Studio G. R. Martin, we refer to Shilpa and Alex as ” The Dream Team”. They are so sweet, so nice, so polite and so beautiful! What a joy it was to get to know them during the wedding planning process. The engagement session was a great way to prepare the couple, and us, their photographers, for their big day.It really benefits both parties. We did an engagement styled session that included three locations: our studio indoor and outdoor, Cumberland Museum and Petrie Island. We made a signing book and a wonderful mounted and laminated framed canvas to showcase at the wedding. The results were fantastic! Have a look at a few of the images from their engagement book!
