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!

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…

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.

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!

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.

Ryan Family – Ottawa family outdoor photography

December was a busy month getting all the photos printed in time for christmas! We printed, and printed and printed…and spent hours preparing and retouching each image individually. No detail is overlooked !  Looking back on all the photos I printed, I notice I have a lot more blog posts to do and I am sooooooo behind….

We already have bookings for family photos this summer and it made me think of all the photos we created that I did not have time to show you. Kim Ryan made sure the whole family would be there at the time of this photo session. This took a lot of planning and many months of phone calls and consultations, but, she made it happen. Photographed at our beautiful outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario, this family demonstrated a classic example of the types of sessions we love to do. The large group,  the immediate family, the grand-parents and each individual family and their kids.And above all, we have a lot of fun creating it 🙂 Plan to be here for a good 1h30 to 2 hrs because the pond and waterfall setting created a wonderful photographic experience and each family gets to enjoy the scenery while waiting for their turn. Here is a look at the beautiful photos we created for this great Orleans family.
