Chateau Laurier Wedding Ottawa

The light quality of the day made this shot. Some people hope for a sunny day, but frankly the best light…if you know how to expose for it…is overcast light.

Strathmere wedding photos

Color like this can`t be missed. I believe the thing that seperates a run of the mill photographer from a very good one is simply the ability to visualize things that others don`t see and then have the technical skills to record them. Having trained dozens of local photographers, many of whom are still shooting for Couvrette Studio, it becomes apparent really quickly which ones have the gift.

It`s probably possible to save a few hundred dollars on wedding photography…but isn`t that about 1 or 2% of the total spent on a wedding by everyone concerned from the engagement party to the honeymoon. It seems to come down to whether people really care about photographs and what I have discovered is that some people really don`t make that a top priority….and hey..thats ok…its just not my kind of client.

I wonder though..when they invite people to their home and look over the wedding shots a year down the road…do they feel good good about their decision.

 

BTW…for another shot of this Strathmere wedding scroll down to the bottom of the page and
see the shot of the bride and groom in a soy field…that’s one of the many great locations out there.

Ottawa Wedding Portrait Lac Leamy Casino Wedding

We stopped at a little island in downtown Gatineau which was a great location for a series of bride and groom portaits. This was one of my faves, partly because of the color and composition and partly because it reminds me of one of the nicer couples of the year….

Ottawa Dog Portrait

Dogs are great in photos…give me dogs any day rather than cats…and I have three of the
felines at home. The shoot took a grand total of five minutes with such a cooperative model.
To date we have photographed cats, dogs,birds, rabbits and horses….and a range of smaller pets.
No snakes please…although perhaps my current assistant might be ok with them….

Don`t be shy, bring that animal in when you book your family…we are all animal lovers.

Wanna see more……click away…

Ottawa Children`s Portraits.

I really hate November…Whats there to like anyway….its cold, its a wish washy month,
outdoor shoots look blah and besides…its gray…

Soooo….here is a nice outdoors portrait just to make us all feel better. I have photographed these kids every year for the parents Christmas card…for the last decade. Apparently, it is highly
anticipated by the family and friends and a top secret project…no, this is not this years…you`ll have to wait.

Ottawa Glamour and Boudoir Photography

We started glamour and boudoir photography in Ottawa in the early nineties. My first big project was the Ottawa Rough Riders Cheerleaders Calendar, which landed us on the front page
of the Citizen for the scandalous behaviour of making women look sexy…lol
Well, Ottawa has come a long way since then and today, this type of image is more common than
most people imagine as a gift for the boyfriend or even as a wedding gift. Around Valentines day
we sell a lot of gift certificates…hint hint.
Sessions are done at our large Centretown studio and we always have a female in attendence at the shoots. Dozens of photogs have come and gone in the boudoir biz…we`re still the original.
One of my images won Best Portrait in Ontario some years back.
For more images, visit our site…or come in to the studio. We have a lot of images that our clients do not want to be seen online that we have been allowed to show you in the studio.

Ottawa Christmas Family Portrait

Ottawa Christmas Family Portrait

Ottawa Christmas Family Portrait Tis the season to start planning. I pulled these two files from last years Christmas shoots just
to get people in the mood. The Christmas season is probably the most enjoyable time to do
family portraits…it seems people’s moods are up and that really works for me. These home sessions are more challenging than in the studio…but thats half the fun.

To see more of our Christmas family portraits take a peek at our site.
