50th anniversary – renewing of vows – M &Mrs Pomerleau

Here is a look at a couple’s 50 th wedding anniversary.  M & Mrs Pomerleau celebrated their 50 year mariage by bringing their family for a portrait session at our ourdoor studio in Cumberland. We were blessed with a beautiful summer day ! The kids had a blast feeding the fish, and playing around the pond while we photographed each family. We finished with the couple as their family made their way to the reception for the renewing of their wedding vows. Here is a look at a few highlights of their photo session!

Kristy – Ottawa Business & Portfolio Photography

 Here is a look at Kristy’s business & portfolio session. She needed one headshot for her resume and a few artistic ones to complete her portfolio.  These types of sessions are better during the day because we can mix the  natural light with flash. Enjoy the highlight!

Baby & Family Photography studio in Ottawa Ontario

We first met Nancy and Johnny when we photographed their wedding in 2008. We printed an acrylic 10×10 flush mount album and entered it in the Professional Photographers Of Ontario competition in 2009. We won first place for the “best wedding album of the year in Ontario”. Since then, they’ve welcomed two beautiful baby boys into their family. Here is a look at the photos taken in our Ottawa “Cumberland” studio. We love to include the parents when we photograph new born babies and we also have many different props and settings to choose from… Here is a look at photos we did the salvati family!

Swat Police Portrait Photo Session – Ottawa Photography

Here is a sneak peek at a swat photo shoot. Motivation to create something unique often comes from an idea a client has. In this case, this clients vision was difficult to understand at first since we could not go on the field, but the more we talked about this project, the more we saw his vision. Understanding what a client wants is the key to creating something outstanding to them…and is it so rewarding to us as photographers. In this swat police portrait photo shoot, we incorporated our signature style of lighting to create mood and to focus on specific swat uniform parts and accessories. For the photo session outdoors, we used natural light. We shot this in late fall ( thanks to our clients recommendation)! The trees were almost bare creating a perfect backdrop for this  type of environmental photography. I am so happy we could create artistic imagery and make each portrait storytelling and powerful. Wish you could all see the hard cover book printed on metallic paper, it is outstanding! Enjoy…

Josée & Mathieu – Ottawa winter engagement photography session

We can’t wait to photograph Josée & Mathieu upcoming destination Wedding on January 8th 2012. Joelle left yesterday for Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic to photograph  Josée & Mathieu’s wedding. Their friends and family  are  also there to enjoy the sun and to celebrate the love this couple shares.  The wedding will take place at the Ocean Blue and Sand Resort  in Punta Cana.  Here’s a little preview of their engagement photos taken by Joelle at our beautiful Cumberland, Ontario photography studio. She made sure to also explore the outdoor studio during this engagement session… such a contrast between the Canadian winters and the beach and ocean setting for the destination wedding will give an exceptional wedding album.

Annyx & Martin – Ottawa Wedding – Notre-Dame Cathedral & Le Nordik Spa in Chelsea

What a wedding! Beautiful fall colors make the perfect backdrop for wedding photography in the nation’s capital. We started the wedding at the couple’s house in Orleans. Beautiful light due to large windows made the lighting perfect for the portrait session. They were both in the same house…but, never saw each other. It was fun to see everyone making sure they would not cross paths- they could only hear their voices…What a fun way to build up the anticipation of the groom seeing the bride for the first time down the aisle…and the aisle at the Notre-Dame Cathedral on sussex in Ottawa is one of the most beautiful ones in town. After the ceremony, we stayed around the church to photograph the families and the couple. We then took a walk downtown and kept on photographing this wonderful and fun couple. It’s so nice when the couple are exited about their photo session because we can do anything….Annyx was the best and her dancing background made her posing skills shine- she was really good…ok, so were you Martin … We made our way to the Nordik Spa in Chelsea for the reception and took advantage of the fall colors. The mature trees made this country spa setting breathtaking… What a perfect day!  Here are some highlights of this fairy tale wedding day!
