Valérie Simard & Grant Clitsome E-session

Valerie and Grant’s engagement photo session was so fun to do. We all took turns at photographing this lovely couple. These are one hour photo sessions because we love to take our time to get to know the couple before their wedding day. It was easy to capture their beauty and the love between each other. Their individual personalities shone through each and every shot. Valerie and Grant’s big day is TODAY… July 14th, 2012.   Here are a few samples from their engagement session photographed at our Cumberland, Ottawa indoor and outdoor studio!

We love using the natural light in our new Cumberland, Ottawa Portrait Studio. Sometimes, we will mix strobe and natural light for a different effect.

3 years ago, we planted a willow tree.. It is finally big enough for photo sessions!

Your Ottawa Engagement Photographers,

Joelle Martin, Guy Martin & Julie Robichaud-Martin

Andrée & Phil-Ottawa Engagement coffee table book album

A while back I posted images from Andrée and Philippe’s engagement session. Their wedding is next month, so, they are busy preparing all the details for that wonderfull wedding day. We produced an engagement coffee table book album for them, it’s an 8.5×11 horizontal book. What you see here is the full 22 inch spread when the book sits opened. These books are designed and  retouched by us and approved by the couple before it goes to press.  We can’t wait to post images from Andrée and Phil’s wedding day in Ottawa and at The Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel in Gatineau-Ottawa, Quebec.

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.

Ottawa Engagement Photographers - Ottawa Couple Photography - On Location Photography - Cumberland Estate Studio

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.

Ottawa Outdoor engagement session – Stephanie et Shane

Stephanie and Shane’s engagement session was photographed at the new Studio G.R. Martin Photography studio and also in other scenic areas in Cumberland. It was so fun to photograph them and their photos are absolutly beautiful!!! Here is what they had to say:

“This session was a lot of fun for us, and Joelle always had different creative idea to give us a very romantic and fun look. She made us feel comfortable and gave good direction – she’s a true professional. We look forward to our wedding day to complete this very special experience.”

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.
