Suzanne & Andre – Cumberland Ontario Garden Wedding Photography

Weddings are always magical…and sometimes as photographers, we witness a kind of love that inspirers us! This is truly what happened on Suzanne and Andre’s wedding day. The love they share for one another is amazing. They are so comfortable with each other and they shine in front of the camera. During the couple’s photos, it was great to watch them walking hand in hand, laugh and kiss as if it was the first time over and over again! To forget that there is a camera around is really the key to spontanious and natural looking photos.

The wedding was at their estate in Cumberland, Ontario on a very hot summer day. Everything was planned to a T, from the grand entrance of the bride on a vintage red dodge convertible to the music during the ceremony from the bride’s daughter Manon, a talented flutist and her aunt, an amazing singer from New Brunswick… The guest were entertained with drinks, cocktails and an impressive collection of old cars worth viewing on their property. The art of entertaining was truly mastered at this wedding!. Here are a few highlights from their engagement photo session and their wedding day!

Jessica Hutchinson- Ottawa Model and Portfolio photography

Let’s just say Jessica has all the right moves! She’s beautiful, smart, funny, mature and her personality makes her photos shine! She knows what to do and when to do it in front of the camera. It’s was a wonderful experience to photograph her in our Ottawa ( Cumberland) photo studio and we wish her a lot of luck with her modeling career. Here is what Jessica had to say:

“When I was 13 I got noticed by an agency and they were ready to give me a scholarship because of the potential they saw in me but my parents thought that I was too young and I should have fun and not always be worried with adult stuff so the years went on and I’ve always thought that I would never have a chance like that ever again.
On my 17th birthday, my parents decided to give me a photo shoot at G.R. Martin photography studio. At first we agreed on a 45 min session and a couple of picture but it turned into a few hours and a whole album. The photographers (Guy, Julie and Joelle) reminded me that I have a lot of potential and that I should contact modeling agencies to get started in that field. I thought that was very flattering but didn’t put much effort into it. A month later, as I’m walking through the pharmacy, I get stopped by the owner of a Models International Management (Sophie) who tells me I she thinks I should enter this contest. At that point I just thought it was just one of those contests that you enter and then forget about. A month later I get a call that they want to see me at the agency where they announced I was the winner of the contest. I won a scholarship of $1,500.00 and a basket full of Benefit products. I am now at the beginning of my 18 week program and absolutely excited to see where this will bring me.

Jessica”

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!

Miller Family – Ottawa family photography

It’s dosen’t really look like spring yet, but, the snow will finaly melt soon ( we hope), because we already have families booked for outdoor sessions at our studio. This is an example of the  family photos we do around the pond. Nicole and Greg were the first at our studio to have a 24×36 wall size printed from our first canon 10D digital camera.  Now, 10 years later, they came back for an ” update” . They are a wonderful ” close” family and we always have fun photographing them.  Refering to the first session at the museum of civilisation ( see the photo at the bottom of the post) their daughter Emily took a photo of my husband Guy during the photoshoot with my camera. It’s a great photo of Guy with an umbrella covering his Mamiya RZ67, loking up at the sky waiting for the rain to stop. I still have this 8×10 in my room. Great job Emily! ( I’ll try to find it and post it soon)

Here is a look at their session.

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.

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.

Ottawa Wedding Photography -Marc & Victoria

Victoria and Marc came all the way from Vancouver to get married in Ottawa. They are a kind, beautiful, and complete each other so well. We were blessed with great ” weather” timing on their wedding day. During the photo session in the morning, it was raining so hard we were planning an indoor photo session. Then, like magic, the rain stopped during the ceremony and we enjoyed a great afternoon of photography in downtown Ottawa!  It was perfect…just like Victoria is for Marc and Marc is for Victoria :). I first met the Kerba family when I photographed their daughters wedding and now, it was Marc’s turn. It’s so great to have the privilege to photograph a second wedding in a family!

We started the photo session in the morning at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel on Kent street. Then, the ceremony was at Ottawa’s St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (one of the only church in Ottawa that don’t allow photography during the ceremony, so, you have to recreate the exchange of the vows after…unless you are blessed with a” low light silent canon camera” :)). The family photos were done outside the church and then, we went for a walk downtown Ottawa and went to the museum of Civilisation in Gatineau for the couple’s photos. We finished the day at the Marriot Hotel for the reception in the Victoria Ballroom.

Here are some highlights of the day.

Outdoor Family Photography

Here are few examples of outdoor families taken at our outdoor studio in Cumberland ( Ottawa) Ontario. The relax setting of the pond with the sound of the waterfall make a wonderful family photography experience. We can still enjoy the outdoor photo studio until October!

Ottawa Studio Family Photography

Mrs. Michaud  and her two girls were funny, relaxed and very READY for their photography session. We photographed her oldest daughter Savanna when she was 16. Her photos were stunning, so stunning that we entered her close-up glamour image in photography competitions ( Professional Photographers of Canada and Ontario) . Now, it’s the girls that just want to have fun and have beautiful souvenirs. We love photographing this type of session because we can have fun and still get the job done. I have to say the funniest moments of the photo session was when Miki started giggling….and could not stop…ever:)
