CHILDREN PORTRAIT SESSION HEAD SHOTS OTTAWA

Le beau Jonathan!!! We have had the privilege of photographing Jonathan for many years now! We love updating his photos and offering him different looks for his modeling portfolios. Kids grow up so fast, so, updating a model head shot should be done every couple of years. Here are a few images from his latest portrait session!

WONDERFUL TESTIMONIAL REVIEW TO STUDIO G.R. MARTIN FROM ELAINE & JACK

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 🙂

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details of our experience with this wonderful duo……Elaine and Jack Turpin…….613-833-8747, or by email: elaine@travia.ca

Elaine & Jack’s May Wedding- St. Margaret Mary Parish & Camelot Golf and Country Club

Sometimes, you just get it… that connection with someone. You just start talking and see eye to eye. This is exactly what happened when Elaine and I started talking on the phone about her big day! In a nutshell, we knew each other’s life story! It is important to find the time to get to know your clients before you photograph their wedding. Everyone is different and what is important to someone, might not be the same to someone else. This being said, Elaine and Jack found each other after similar circumstances brought them together. Friendship turned into love, and in May 2015, they got to walk down the aisle at  St. Margaret Mary’s church in Cumberland. Jack’s photo session was done at our Cumberland studio while Elaine’s bridal session was photographed at the couple’s beautiful home. After the ceremony, I got the latter out of my SUV to get that one important picture…”the group photo in front of the church”. Family photos followed the ceremony on the church property.  Elaine and Jack’s official couple photos were done back at our studio. We took advantage of the indoor studio to warm up a little, but the chilly weather was not a problem for this couple,  they spiced things up just looking at each other! The reception was a few steps away at the Camelot Golf and Country Club . Everything was amazing; the gorgeous view; the service; the atmosphere; the heart felt speeches;  the decorations and photo booth and the awesome live music from the band “Another Level”. I was so impressed by this live band, they knew how to get a crowd moving! In all, it was a superb day. To Elaine and Jack: You two are wonderful, kind, generous and beautiful inside and out! I wish you the best in your new lives as husband and wife and thank you for allowing Guy and I to record your special day through images that will keep this day alive forever!
