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.

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…

Another beautiful engagement session photographed downtown Ottawa… We started around the Rideau Canal under the Wellington bridge for images with an architectural flare. Mark and Katrina make such a beautiful couple, they are so cute together…there was a lot of  LOL and cracking up during the photo session…this gave us a great opportunity to get to know them more before their big day…

Mark is a musician at a local bar in Ottawa! He got the owners to open the doors early for some extra engagement photos… We had a blast photographing

them in an environment that meant a lot to them.. Using natural window light, we created dramatic looking images that capture the mood and love between them…

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.

Carley & Mat Jackson – Ottawa Wedding Photography

Weddings in Ottawa have a magical feeling, especially in the fall. The venues that Carley and Mat chose for their Ottawa wedding affair were amazing. They are such a sweet couple, and Carley was breathtaking in her dress. We did the pre wedding photographs at the Minto Suites Hotel , then, the wedding ceremony at the  Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica. We always stay around the church property for photos after the wedding. It’s one of our favorite spots for family photos. Since it was a very late fall wedding and it was ” cool” outside, they rented the  National Art Gallery for the wedding photography. The night ended at the Minto Suites Hotel for the reception. Beautiful day, beautiful couple….in short, we wish them a great life together 🙂

We still have a few dates available for fall weddings in 2011! Just give us a call. Enjoy the highlights!

Wide angle photographs can give an exiting effect ( especially downtown Ottawa)

A mix of classic poses and candid / freestyle moments are important to tell a story.

On the way to the reception, Guy convinced the couple to step outside the limousine for some  photos at major hills park. The parliament and it’s surroundings are amazing in in photos.

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.
