Ottawa High School Senior Photography

Beautiful Justine is our co-op student from Ecole Secondaire Gisele Lalonde in Orleans. She is great in every way. To thank her for doing such a good job and having wonderful work ethics, Joelle offered her a photo shoot. (To become a photographer, you have to learn to be in front of the camera as much as being behind it). This photo session was taken on location at a Stable.

Outdoor Family Photography – Studio G.R. Martin New Estate Studio

Organizing a family portrait can be a challenge. Sometimes, they are long in the making…just like The “Morin”  family that called us more then a year before we did this session. All it takes is a little planning :).  We could not be happier with this session. Their choice of colors and style match beautifully with the pond decor. A session always has 3 scenarios included; The extended family, the immediate family and the grand-parents (couple or individual). We can also add sub-groups like in this case, of every individual family and their children. Have a look!

We already have family bookings for next year. If you have a get together, or a family reunion planned and you would like family photos, it’s not to early to book for next year. Our Cumberland outdoor studio and pond can provide a beautiful background with controlled lighting even on sunny days. On top of this, we don’t need a plan “B” because our new indoor studio is a few feet away, and,  it can accommodate large groups up to 40 people.  We are designing the new family  backgrounds now and can’t wait for the grand opening in March of 2010. Call us at 613-824-8525 to set up your free consultation today.

Cumberland Estate Studio – Ottawa Family Photography

Studio G. R. Martin is a family portrait studio. That is what we are known for and that is what Guy loves to do. When Guy decides to build or design a new background, it is always with family photography in mind. We are so proud of our outdoor studio. The response this year has been overwhelming. So many families requested our new outdoor studio. We still can’t get enough of photographing there. Every session, we find a different angle or discover a new spot at that time of day where the light is wonderful.  We are natural light seekers, all our images revolve on finding that light. When Trina called us to do their family photos again, I were  so happy. I remembered the eyes….they have the most beautiful eyes. When we did the girls photos, the directional light ( achieved from being tucked away under trees) brought out their facial features and made the color of their eyes “pop”. Mission accomplished 🙂  Have a look.

These wall montages are a great way to display multiple prints on your wall. They are usually 5×7 or 6×8 images with a 3 inch mat. The final size ranges between 12 x 26 to 14 x 30. We then mount, laminate and texture them for a beautiful rich finish and UV protection. Guy helps the clients choose the frame that will complete this photography wall art and no glass is needed.

Outdoor Children Photography – Ottawa Lifestyle sessions

This is a preview of a book we are designing for our new “Lifestyle family portrait sessions”. They include a two hour minimum photo session in our studio or at the location of your choice and a large 40 page coffee table book. These books tell a story, a little like this one we are creating. It’s the story of ” a day in the life of a three year old”. Our goal is to capture your child’s many expressions and  true personality  in a series of events and playtime.  A consultation is a must to make this story telling book a success. Stay tuned for highlights of this finished book in a few weeks!

On Location Candid Family Photography

Caroline and her kids were a joy to photograph. We went in their backyard and our mission was simple; it’s all about the moment….not the pose. Sometimes a great image doesn’t have to be all perfectly poses. In this case, we were matching a photo her husband had done 10 years ago with his 2 children. This choice of clothes matches this sepia image very well. Consultations are the key to a successful portrait photo session!

Tanya & George

Tanya & George are  the sweetest &  kindest couple we had the honor of photographing. They truly love photography  and put their 100% trust in us to help capture their wedding day memories. Guy and Brent photographed their outdoor wedding ceremony at the Billings Estate in Ottawa. After , they made their way to the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau for the wedding party and couple’s photos.  At studio G.R. martin, we are not just about taking the photos and out they go, there is a lot more work involved in creating that beautiful 8.5×11 proof catalogue. The couples see a selection of 500 to 600 proofs ( each styled and retouched), then, they make their selection and that is when we start designing the wedding album ( tailored to your style and taste). Each wedding album is unique and we have over 7 different styles to choose from.  Tanya and George just picked up their beautiful classic leather wedding album last week, and here is the testimonial they wrote:

“Hi Guy, Julie, Joelle & Carole,

I wanted to send a quick thank you to all of you from George and I. We couldn’t be more pleased with our weddiing album!! The final touch-ups and work that you all put into our album, are of an elite quality that we would not have been able to find elsewhere. We are so proud to show off our beautiful wedding pictures and album to all of our friends and family. We thank you so much for capturing each precious moment of our special day, and for making us feel confident in ourselves after seeing your breathtaking work. We will continue to trust you all with our special moments for many years to come. We can’t thank you enough!! Cheers,

Tanya & George”

Downtown Ottawa Fall Weddings – Natasha & Kyle

Natasha & Kyle – What a wonderful wedding!  We started the bridal portraits at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, then, made our way to the  St-Joseph church in Orleans for the ceremony. We always explore the church grounds at that location for family photography. The gray brick and the courtyard next to the church are great for photos. We then went back to Chateau Laurier and Major Hill’s park for the outdoor photos. We had so much fun. Here are highlights of this event.

Ottawa Winter Wedding

Here are a few highlights from another beautiful winter wedding. Pam and Vikkas were married  at Strathmere house in North Gower, Ontario. It’s great to photograph weddings at this beautiful country estate because there is a good mix of both indoor and outdoor locations. Also, we get to mix and mingle with the guests during the cocktail while taking the family and couple’s photos. It’s a great, fun and relaxed environment for all!
