Lachapelle family Photography – Ottawa outdoor studio

It’s this time of year again! Our outdoor studio is ready, almost every plant survived the long winter , did I say …long winter… We are now booking family sessions in June, Tuesday to Friday, 9h30 am to 5h30 pm, Wednesday nights until 8h00 PM and we still have a few opening for Saturday, june 18th. We also have a few Saturdays available in July and august. Call us at 613-824-8525 for more information.

I wanted to highlight a family session taken last year at our outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario. The Lachapelle family decided to dress in casual clothing with white tops and jeans, which are great for outdoor photos.  They were a joy to photograph. We laughed  a lot and took the time to photograph each family, kids, siblings and grandparents. The results were amazing!  A typical family session lasts about 1.5 hours. Have a look at some sample from the photo session!

Mel & J-F – Engagement Photography Session in Ottawa

Melissa & J-f  have less then a  month left before their Big wedding day! They are the sweetest couple and are perfect together. I’m lucky to have her as my hair stylist ( Melissa Robert recently opened her hair salon in Orleans, Ontario called Studio M. You can reach her at 613-277-1165 or visit her website at www.studio-m.ca.

The engagement photography session was taken at our Cumberland studio ( indoor and outdoor) and at Petrie Island  (located on the Ottawa River, in the Orleans area).  We can’t wait to photograph their wedding in April… Here are a few highlights of their engagement photo session!

This window is in our studio. We love mixing the natural light with the flash backlight from the set window.

This beautiful  light acrylic wall is in our front entrance under a covered porch. We use the natural light ( no flash) in this spot because of the directional light coming from the side. The natural reflector created by the other white walls fill in the dark areas creating a beautiful wrap around light.

These next set of outdoor photos are taken mostly in the shaded areas of our pond and outdoor gardens.

Fannie & Benoit -A Summer Wedding in Rockland, Ontario

Fannie & Benoit got married last summer in Rockland. It was a beautiful summer day and everything was perfect ( including the couple)! We covered two locations in the morning ( the groom’s parents home and the bride’s), then off to the church in Rockland. We did the photography session of the family and wedding party next to the church and took the couple to our outdoor estate studio in Cumberland for a little variety. Their reception was in Rockland at the “Chevalier de Colombs” reception Hall. The couple’s entrance in the hall was one of the most original/fun and entertaining we had ever seen! They rocked the hall…Here are a few photos of their memorable day!

Ottawa Wedding – Stephanie & Shane’s wedding Day

Stephanie & Shane got married on a Friday in July and Joelle and I had the honor of photographing their special day.  We love to photograph engagement session around Ottawa because it’s a great way to get to know our couples better before the wedding…but, that special spark ignites the day of the wedding 🙂

Shane got right into his photo session ( with the help of his groomsmen of course – let’s say some of them where really into it, it was great!) Then, we went to the brides home, and Steph was sooooooooooooo comfortable in front of the camera ( This bride can move :)) Stephanie is our model bride of the year ! She gave us so many different expressions per minute and moved like she had done photo sessions all her life.

The day was perfect, and the bride and groom were perfect for each other! We had a blast photographing them and their wedding party at the National gallery of canada. After the wedding ceremony at the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica, we walked around the By-ward market. We made our way to the reception at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. Here are some highlights of their wedding day!

Le Studio G. R. Martin : une histoire de famille (Express Ottawa)

Here is the “LINK” for an article that appeared in the  “‘Express – Ottawa, La voix francophone de l’Est à l’Ouest d’Ottawa ” written by Kristina Brazeau.

En voici des extraits:

La réputation du Studio G. R. Martin, situé à Orléans, n’est plus à faire. Voici l’histoire d’une famille animée par la même passion : la photographie.

Le Studio, qui a été fondé par Guy Martin, compte son épouse, Julie Robichaud-Martin ainsi que la fille de ce dernier, Joelle Martin.

Ceux-ci ne cessent de cumuler les prix depuis plusieurs années. 

Diplômée de La Cité collégiale en 2008, Joelle Martin a remporté la palme du Portfolio de l’année ainsi que du meilleur Portrait de l’année. Elle a également remporté deux excellences, un mérite et un ruban de créativité lors d’une compétition organisée par la Corporation des maîtres photographes du Québec (CMPQ) malgré sa jeune carrière. 

 Âgée de 20 ans seulement, Joelle travaille pour l’entreprise familiale depuis l’âge de 10 ans. «À 20 ans, elle a tellement de talents que Guy et moi souhaitons lui transmettre toutes nos connaissances pour qu’elle puisse nous surpasser un jour», indique Mme Robichaud-Martin en ajoutant que son mari l’avait également prise sous son aile à l’époque. Le trio se spécialise dans les portraits de toute sorte. «C’est plate de photographier un édifice qui ne parle pas, qui n’a pas d’émotions. Nous aimons l’interaction avec les gens», indique Julie en ajoutant qu’il n’y a rien de plus plate qu’un photographe plate. C’est pourquoi toutes leurs sessions sont accompagnées d’une consultation pour apprendre à connaître le client. 

Cette dernière cumule également les prix et a pour sa part récolté une sixième nomination pour Photographe portraitiste de l’année au Canada depuis 1999. Elle a également remporté le premier prix pour l’Album de mariage au Canada en 2006. Cette dernière a aussi eu l’occasion de se rendre en Chine, avec son conjoint, afin de représenter les photographes de l’Amérique du Nord et d’offrir, entre autres, de la formation. 

Guy Martin, qui se spécialise quant à lui dans les portraits de familles et des gens d’affaires, a été sacré Photographe portraitiste de l’année en Ontario en 2004 en plus de récolter deux nominations pour le Photographe portraitiste de l’année au Canada. Il a d’ailleurs remporté deux premiers prix pour le meilleur portrait et le meilleur portrait d’enfants. 

Ces derniers excellent également dans les photos de mariage. 

Le fait de participer à des compétitions est une motivation et revêt même un aspect de compétition entre eux.
