ottawa portrait and wedding photographers- GREAT REVIEW & TESTIMONIAL TO STUDIO G.R. MARTIN

Our wedding day was the Best. Day. Ever.

The only downside? It goes by in the blink of an eye. And long after the vows were said, the speeches toasted and the celebrations over, having professional and experienced wedding photographers like Julie and Guy from Studio G R Martin on board to brilliantly capture the emotions and the joy of our wedding day increased the value of those photographs a thousand times over.

We have driven by their beautiful studio near our home in Cumberland hundreds of times over the years, never realizing what a gem we had in our midst! After my first phone call to Julie, we absolutely clicked…….she is warm, effusive and bubbly and I loved her enthusiasm and energy. I instantly knew we did not need to look further, and a subsequent meeting with Julie and her equally talented husband Guy only confirmed that hunch. They took the time to ask questions, get to know us and fully explain the process so that we knew exactly what to expect.

Our wedding day was absolutely magical in spite of the cool weather;  the separately taken pre-wedding photos, shot at their indoor studio, their stunning outdoor landscape, (complete with gorgeous gardens AND a pond!)  left both this bride and groom relaxed and happy before the ceremony. This husband and wife team really communicated well throughout each session and kept things moving and consistently on time. We especially appreciated their expert direction and guidance for many of the photos (“turn slightly to the left, chin down, right foot forward”); nothing was left to chance, and their artistic eye for a balanced and beautifully photographed scene is evident throughout their work. They worked respectfully and discreetly in the church, yet captured every important aspect of the ceremony. Everyone at our wedding commented on how much fun our photographers were; I don’t think anyone will ever forget Julie teetering on the very top step of a 6 foot ladder with the grace  of a ballerina to capture that all-important group photo outside the church after the wedding. It was just one of the many ways that they demonstrated that day  their professionalism and a heartfelt passion for their art.

In the end, the best advice came from my daughter: so much money and effort is spent on a wedding, and to leave the documentation of those precious memories to just anyone could be a sad regret. It was a last minute decision to extend their services well beyond the beginning of the reception, and we are so happy that we did! Julie never sat still…….if there was something going in, Julie was immediately there to capture it. She went above and beyond to seek out moments we hadn’t even thought about.  We literally teared up when we first saw our wedding photos; they completely exceeded our expectations, and we have awesome photos of our day, our family and our guests that we truly cherish.

Bravo Julie and Guy…..you are the best! We loved every minute of our wedding day, and we thank you for capturing it so beautifully; we are very proud to share these memories with our family and friends and display them in our home. The many industry awards on display in your studio are well deserved; you made us feel like royalty that day, and we would not hesitate a moment to recommend your services to any bride and groom who wanted to forever recall those magical wedding day memories just as they happened 🙂
