Photojournalism / Ottawa Wedding Photographers

Photojournalism Photography
This “leaving the house”shot was one of my favorites from a Lebanese wedding. We also photographed her sisters wedding a couple of years before this one and it was nice the see
the whole gang again. I posted this shot because it really is true photojournalism. It really happened this way and we did not stop them three times to pose it. I see a lot of photographers calling themselves photojournalists but when I go to their sites I see images that will be the cliches of the future.
Much of what I see as “photojournalism” is just a series of badly lit shots passing for “art”.

What do I see..

=Photoshop filters thrown on to rescue technically bad portraits in which the brides dress is a white explosion and the bridesmaids skin tone is something from a horror flick.
= Images that someone tries to pass for art but don`t even have even basic technical qualities
like proper color or lighting of the subtle colors of the dresses.
=The ones that will really be dated fast are those wide angle shots from below that people think are cool now, but are just the cliches of this era. Why someone would want to make themselves look twisted up on their wedding day..who knows. Then again, I never did the double expose the music sheet on the brides head..lol.

We are both portraitists and photojournalists and have been doing so all along….To see some recent editorial and photojournalism…go here. For a few examples of our photojournalistic wedding images go here. Great images never go out of style! We have been shooting candids
throughout the studio’s history…I am just glad that now people are actually putting them into
their albums.

Are there good wedding photojournalists in town…yes, a handful. For most, its just the latest label to try to make a sale.

OK…Rant Off.

Sooo….I dug back and started thinking about some of my faves over the last couple of
years. This is a page from the digital album of an Italian wedding at Sala San Marco.
Yes…the food was amazing.
Upper Canada village is such a great location…
Sala San Marco… all decked out.

Ok… we went a little wild here… infrared and filters.

These are two noted musicians… I won’t drop names… and yes, these
are their stage outfits. The shot was done in our studio on Gladstone Street.

Ottawa Wedding Photographers

Ottawa Wedding Photography
So what I`d like to do first is post some of my faves over the last couple of years and
tell you a little bit about our style….
This engagement photograph was done this spring in my studio on Gladstone Street. The couple were a lot of fun to work with…and it really helped set the tone for their
wedding shoot a couple of months later. Many of their wedding images are now up on our new Flash site, which can be viewed here.

Here is the first wedding EVER at the new Metropolitan Bible Church…

We had a great time shooting at the Mill in Perth this summer. The area is full of great locations, some of which are also on the new Couvrette Site.

Got Bikes? We are the only studio in the city with the ability to shoot motorcycles in a controlled lighting setup. How about bringing your bike in for a coooool engagement portrait.

Here is the first shot of one of my favorite coverages of this summer…Bring on those Italian
Weddings.
Ottawa Wedding Photography
Yes… that IS her home, not the Chateau Laurier. We covered this wedding last summer on a beautiful day at her house on the St. Lawrence Seaway. Sara was such a nice bride, relaxed, cordial, and yes, on time for the shoot.

A bit of photojournalism by one of my photographers at a fun country wedding…

Serge captured this one in an elevator… good one buddy.

Here’s one I got on a crazy rainy day… we could not resist this old barn as we drove by on the way to the reception.
Ottawa Wedding Photography
Once again, Serge caught this shot at what must have been his most fun assignment of the summer.
Ottawa Wedding Photography
Okay… so we played with this one a bit in Photoshop.

If I was entering this in a competition I would probably entitle it “Runaway Bride”… but no, she did stay for the wedding.
Ottawa Wedding Photography
I shot this at the Bride’s parents soybean farm silo this fall. Who knows what you will find when you get out of the city. In Ottawa, some fancy architect would charge you a fortune to put this post modern look on your house…lol

Who says studio portraits can`t be cool…
Ottawa Wedding Photography
This was taken at Strathmere… sometimes I see things at locations that many photographers walk right by…
Ottawa Wedding Photography
What do you do when a couple comes in for an engagement portrait in full Korean Wedding dress… this was my solution. Somehow they wouldn’t have looked right in a gritty street or running through a park… Each couple has a unique image… and our job is to find out how to capture it.
