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.

Lifestyle family and children photography- Ottawa Ontario

Emilie’s lifestyle photo book was delivered by purolator on December 24th,ouf!!! just in time for my Christmas gifts. Let’s just say this is the best present I ever gave my Mom and Dad. We were not even at the 5th page and the box of tissues was out and the emotion, smiles and tears of joy were flooding the room around the Christmas tree.

My job as a photographer is to capture the personality, innocence and beauty of a child and those candid unexpected moments as they unfolds. We are proud to introduce our “Lifestyle photo book packages” for 2010. The response has already been overwhelming and we have already been commissioned to photograph 2 “lifestyle family books” this spring. These sessions take at least 2.5 hours and include a studio  and  on location session ( preferably in and around your home) with 2 photographers ( Guy, joelle or Julie).  The beauty about this type of session is that you don’t need to come back to the studio to see the proofs, Joelle and I will do it all! The editing, retouching, artistic design and layout. The next time you need to come in the studio if to see an electronic copy of the 80 sides finished layout and approve it . 3 weeks later, your lifestyle photo book is ready! Call us at 613-824-8525 for more details. Enjoy the preview!

Tanya & George

Tanya & George are  the sweetest &  kindest couple we had the honor of photographing. They truly love photography  and put their 100% trust in us to help capture their wedding day memories. Guy and Brent photographed their outdoor wedding ceremony at the Billings Estate in Ottawa. After , they made their way to the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau for the wedding party and couple’s photos.  At studio G.R. martin, we are not just about taking the photos and out they go, there is a lot more work involved in creating that beautiful 8.5×11 proof catalogue. The couples see a selection of 500 to 600 proofs ( each styled and retouched), then, they make their selection and that is when we start designing the wedding album ( tailored to your style and taste). Each wedding album is unique and we have over 7 different styles to choose from.  Tanya and George just picked up their beautiful classic leather wedding album last week, and here is the testimonial they wrote:

“Hi Guy, Julie, Joelle & Carole,

I wanted to send a quick thank you to all of you from George and I. We couldn’t be more pleased with our weddiing album!! The final touch-ups and work that you all put into our album, are of an elite quality that we would not have been able to find elsewhere. We are so proud to show off our beautiful wedding pictures and album to all of our friends and family. We thank you so much for capturing each precious moment of our special day, and for making us feel confident in ourselves after seeing your breathtaking work. We will continue to trust you all with our special moments for many years to come. We can’t thank you enough!! Cheers,

Tanya & George”

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.

Beautiful Ottawa Wedding – Stephanie & Lenny

Fall weddings are awesome…..sometimes a little cold, but, the colors are always amazing. Stephanie and Lenny’s wedding was ” an amazing experience for me as a photographer” 🙂 . The bride was very relaxed, very beautiful and very much into the bridal photography session taken before the wedding at the Arc hotel in downtown Ottawa. Then, we were off to the outdoor ceremony site at Billings Estate Museum, Ottawa for a wonderful short and sweet ceremony. After exploiting the parks around the estate and taking the family photos, we were off to Sparks street. Lenny and Stephanie met at a pub, so,their request was simple ! They asked me to photograph them at the D’Arcy McGees pub to be exact. We were there for one hour, relaxing, chatting, laughing, taking wedding photos and enjoying,( yes, a first for me on the job) beer!!!. The staff  and their clients were totally into the photo shoot, allowing us the space we needed to get the job done. On top of that, the groom was totally relaxed and into the photo shoot to…. Isn’t this the perfect ” no stress” wedding recipe 🙂  As a photographer, our job is to listen to our clients and to try to see how they see their portrait images.  This proves that consultations and engagement sessions are  a must prior to the wedding day to get to know the couple and give them what they want. 

After the Ottawa sparks street and pub session, we made our way to the reception at the ” Canadian Aviation Museum“.  Blessed again with an amazing venue with great architecture, we had fun inside and outside the museum.  Thanks for trusting me to photograph your wedding day and for allowing me to capture through my lens, the love and happiness you share.  The two of you are perfect for each other!

Have a look at a few highlights from Stephanie and Lenny’s proof book.

Another Beautiful Ottawa – Gatineau Wedding

How do you get awesome wedding photography? The answer is simple: you need good chemistry between you “the client” and the photographers, a lot of trust, a lot of fun, a lot of laughter and a portrait artist that understands the importance of timing, composition, posing and direction of light. Mix all that together, add a couple in LOVE with awesome personalities and a great wedding party. The results: Sara & Jeffrey’s wedding day.

We started in Orleans, ceremony was at St-Anthony’s church on Booth Street in Ottawa, and then we went to Théâtre de lIle in Gatineau for the formal photos. The  wedding reception was at Chateau Cartier in Aylmer. We had so much fun, they had so much fun, and it was a beautiful day. How cool is that !!! We have the best job in the world…
