Melissa & Jason – Engagement / Couple Photography in Ottawa

We love photographing couples. When we go on location, it’s usually because the couple wants an album or a signing book for their reception table. Knowing in advance the kind of product the couple will order, make us tailor the way we photograph during the session. Here is the layout for a 15 pages- 30 sides – vertical 8×12 metallic papers – Hard back cover book. All the images were taken downtown Ottawa, around the Byward market, the courtyard, Major Hill’s Park and York street.  We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in September 2012! Here are some highlights of their “on location” portrait session…

Another beautiful engagement session photographed downtown Ottawa… We started around the Rideau Canal under the Wellington bridge for images with an architectural flare. Mark and Katrina make such a beautiful couple, they are so cute together…there was a lot of  LOL and cracking up during the photo session…this gave us a great opportunity to get to know them more before their big day…

Mark is a musician at a local bar in Ottawa! He got the owners to open the doors early for some extra engagement photos… We had a blast photographing

them in an environment that meant a lot to them.. Using natural window light, we created dramatic looking images that capture the mood and love between them…

Tania & Francois – Ottawa Wedding photography

Wedding season is just around the corner! If you are an Ottawa soon to be bride and still haven’t booked your photograph yet, we still have a few dates available for the 2011 wedding season.

Here are some samples of a wedding photographed in Ottawa. Tania and Francois were the perfect wedding couple. They put their 100 % trust in us as wedding photographers and the results are outstanding. Joelle photographed this wedding along with her good friend and fellow Ottawa photographer Baz.  The weather was great for an October wedding, the wedding party was crazy fun and the couple awesome… A wonderful wedding day in the capital!

We started our day at the groom house here in Orleans and then made our way to the mother of the bride’s house in the Gloucester area. The ceremony was held at the St Francois d’Assise church. We then re located to the downtown Ottawa byward market area for some family, wedding party and couple photos. The wedding party was great to work with and our couple was so down to earth!  The night ended at the Hampton Inn in Ottawa. All the personal touches Tania and Francois added to their wedding day made this wedding so unique – the bride’s bright red shoes, the black feathers that were incorporated in the flower bouquets and in their table centerpiece and of course… Tania’s red gloves..

(Thank you to Tania & Francois – It was an honor to work with you! Joelle)

Ottawa Wedding Photography -Marc & Victoria

Victoria and Marc came all the way from Vancouver to get married in Ottawa. They are a kind, beautiful, and complete each other so well. We were blessed with great ” weather” timing on their wedding day. During the photo session in the morning, it was raining so hard we were planning an indoor photo session. Then, like magic, the rain stopped during the ceremony and we enjoyed a great afternoon of photography in downtown Ottawa!  It was perfect…just like Victoria is for Marc and Marc is for Victoria :). I first met the Kerba family when I photographed their daughters wedding and now, it was Marc’s turn. It’s so great to have the privilege to photograph a second wedding in a family!

We started the photo session in the morning at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel on Kent street. Then, the ceremony was at Ottawa’s St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (one of the only church in Ottawa that don’t allow photography during the ceremony, so, you have to recreate the exchange of the vows after…unless you are blessed with a” low light silent canon camera” :)). The family photos were done outside the church and then, we went for a walk downtown Ottawa and went to the museum of Civilisation in Gatineau for the couple’s photos. We finished the day at the Marriot Hotel for the reception in the Victoria Ballroom.

Here are some highlights of the day.

Downtown Ottawa Couple Photography

Yes, it’s cold in Ottawa! Sometimes, to get that perfect photo, you have to tell yourself that the weather does not matter. Well, in this case, it was hot wherever Matthieu and Josée went. Joelle took these photos around the market and downtown Ottawa on a Saturday afternoon. We are booking on location engagement photos all year long and we still have Saturdays and week days available for winter sessions. We love to start the photo sessions  in our studio and do close-up classic portraiture, then, off to the cold we go :). Here are some examples.

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.

Winter Weddings in Downtown Ottawa

Well, it is a fact, we live in Canada, and summer is so short….Why not plan a beautiful white winter wedding in the Nation’s Capital. In fact, winter weddings are becoming more and more popular. We love taking outdoor wedding photos in the winter. We explore locations around the courtyard, at the ByWard market, around the Parliament of Canada and Major’s Hill Park. A beautiful winter wedding location is also at the Canadian Museum of Civilisation in Gatineau or the landmark ” Fairmont Chateau Laurier” in Ottawa.
