Ray & Kerie – Ottawa studio and outdoor couple photography session

A lovely couple, beautiful inside and out!

 Kerie and Ray wanted some nice couple photos to celebrate their time together as husband and wife. After a consultation to design the portrait session, we decided that a mix of classic portraiture with a modern flare was the studio look they wanted. For the  outdoor photo session, they opted for a more natural and  freestyle approach. To achieve this look, we still direct. It’s almost like on a movie set were we position them in the best light with the perfect background and give them instructions to follow. Once we say 1,2,3 action…. Its up to them to talk, laugh walk and interact.  This technique creates wonderful natural looks with guarantied amazing results.  Here is a look at some highlights from Kerie and Ray’s portrait session taken at our studio in Cumberland Ontario.

Leah+Andy – Engagement Couple Photos – Camelot Golf Course

 We’ve been photographing Leah since she started dancing with Ecole de Danse Louise when she was just a little girl and in her teen years, Joelle loved using her as a model when she studied photography at La Cité Collégiale.  Leah and Andy just purchased their first home together. They wanted to get couple photos to decorate their walls. They also just announced their wedding for September 2014! Congratulation Leah & Andy! We can’t wait to photograph you on your wedding day!

Here is a look at this session photographed at our outdoor studio in Cumberland, Ontario and at Petrie island. This lovely couple, from Calgary , now live in Brockville Ontario. For out of town clients, we can often arrange the photo session and viewing of the proofs the same day to eliminate traveling again to the studio to view the photos!  Here is a look at a few of the photos they liked from their engagement outdoor session! We wish them good luck and a great destination wedding!

Ottawa Engagement couple photography – Renee & Vito

Renee & Vito met six years ago, on Canada Day, outside of Pancho Villa… where Vito later ended up proposing. However, it took a few years before the timing was right for them to start dating. Renee was away in Nova Scotia and Vito spent the school year in Ottawa and summers in southern Ontario. They finally went on a date four years ago and both of them realized it was worth the wait. They are proof of what happens when you cross a creative craft master with a scholar/magician – the surprises never stop! We are so happy and excited to photograph their wedding today, July 6th, downtown Ottawa.

Ottawa Engagement Session – Vero & Seb

Engagement photography- the best way to tell your story!

Outdoor Photography in Ottawa,  in April,  can be challenging, so, here is a creative way to get around the lack greenery for a more natural, comtemporary look. Joelle is commissioned to photograph their wedding photos next year at the Majestic Elegance Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

Engagement sessions are free if we photograph your wedding. Engagement albums are a great way to display your images. We invite you to come and view samples in our studio.
