Shilpa & Alex – Christian Ceremony at the Hilton Lac-Leamy

Here is PART ONE of this amazing wedding. I had to split this two day wedding in three parts as there are so many photos we wanted to share. The day started at 7h00 AM for us, so imagine how early it started for the bride and groom!!! The morning preparations were done at the Hilton Lac-Leamy.  The Presidential suite is breathtaking and offered the perfect backdrop for this luxurious wedding. Seema Haider makeup artist and her team did a wonderful job getting the bride, her family and wedding party ready on time. Bharat Rudra coordinated the wedding and made sure all the vendors, couple and family members knew exactly were to be at all times.  To bring the “mother nature” team indoors, the decorating team made replicas of crab apple trees in bloom. It was perfect with the white and blush colour palette. This was an early Cristian wedding to honour the groom’s family traditions. We took some additional photos of the family and wedding party around the Hilton. We then crossed over to the Ottawa side for more photos around the National Gallery of Canada. We were back at the Hilton for lunch and to get ready for the Hindu Celebration! (Thank you Shilpa and Alex for  being so amazing and for looking soooooo gorgeous. You two were so fun to work with and were truly a joy to photograph.

Stay tuned for PART TWO of Shilpa and Alex’s Hindu Wedding.

BABY SLOAN IS ALL GROWN UP – LIFESTYLE STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY

“Baby Sloan” is the most adorable little girl. She is polite, pretty and determined to do things her way. Kids often dictate the photo sessions. Our job as photographers is to guide the child to the set, chair, rug or area we want them photographed in, and then, let their imagination and the magic happen. We have tricks up our sleeves, but sometime, even the funniest toy or most beautiful stuffed animal won’t make a difference in the world if the child does not want to be there. We need to build a trusting relationship first, get them to like us, and photograph in a non-obstructive style. This approach works really well when parents want a “lifestyle photo session”. Here are a few highlights!

FAIRMONT CHATEAU MONTEBELLO WEDDING – MARIAGE MONTEBELLO QUEBEC

This lovely couple tied the knot last fall. The day started on the Ontario side at both their home and parents home. The wedding was held at the “Paroisse St-Jacques” on Notre Dame Street, in Embrun,Ontario. This is a very majestic church in the middle of a small village that looks amazing visually, especially on photos!!! After the church wedding, we crossed over to the Quebec side to make our way to the Chateau Montebello. We love photographing weddings at Montebello. The scenery, the river, the marina, the chateau, the iconic fireplace, la maison Papineau, the stables, the trails in the woods… you name it, they have it. Let’s not forget to mention the staff at the hotel, always friendly and very helpful. The evening was filled with heartfelt speeches, lot’s of laughter, amazing family and friends and lot’s of dancing!!!

To Mauranne and Marc: It was a privilege to record the events of your wedding day! You are truly beautiful and we wish you the best in the new chapter of your lives together. May these wedding photos help keep the memories of your day alive and we hope you enjoy them for years to come!

Here are a some highlights of the day!

Chris Stuewe – Dance photography with Chalk Experiment

 Coming from a dancing background myself, I always wanted to try this kind of photo session. I have a big studio, but did not want the mess and having to clean up! So, one night, I took my studio outdoors. I had perfect conditions: high humidity, warm weather, almost no wind and the perfect dancer!!! Thank you Chris Stuewe for your perseverance in continuing to contact me about making this photo shoot happen!  I used my canon Mark 111 camera with a 70-200. I used a mix of strobes and video lights and tested the “in camera” multiple exposure options. 9 multiple exposures did not turn out so great but I got great results with the 3 and 5 options!  Here are the results of this fun “dancing with powder” photography session.

Fall Family Session – Orleans Cumberland Outdoor Photo Studio

Last call for outdoor fall photography! If you did not book yet, now is the time! Thank you to all the families that braved yesterdays cold weather. Yes, it happened, our first snow fall during our morning family sessions. We got wind gusts, hail, rain and snow. But the determination of our families made it possible for us to continue the photo session outdoors ( with many trips to our indoor studio to warm up). The convenience of having both studio within seconds is what makes outdoor sessions possible even in bad weather. Don’t forget to dress comfortably, in layers and to apply makeup with no shine ( a mat look is always best for photography). Here is a look at a beautiful fall family session at our outdoor studio in Cumberland Ottawa!
