Rwandan Wedding in Gatineau Park

I think one of the reasons why we have continued to photograph weddings is the number of truly fascinating things we get to see…
We recently covered an African wedding with cultural events and symbols that harked back a thousand years. We have photographed over 2000 weddings in our 40 year history and continue to see Canada through new eyes.

Photoshop Restoration in Ottawa.

We do a range of Photoshop work as well as restoration for a number of clients from government to private individuals.

We have restored the collections of a number of Federal Govt departments and are referred by the Public Archives.

There is no way to quote on this type of work until we see the original and your requirements.

Our standard portrait retouching ranges from slight softening of skintone and fixing flyaway hairs to
full on altering of features and reducing weight. Extensive retouching is of course billed as an
extra fee…dependent on how much work you want done.

Studio Engagement Portrait Ottawa.

We shoot engagement portraits both on location and in our Centretown Ottawa studio.
Given our unpredictable weather, it is a good backup in any case.

Besides, it allows us to create something a bit different than other photographers in town and that`s all good.

Now that the weather has turned, we have switched to shooting most of our engagement sessions in the studio…

We love it when people join in the fun and get creative with props and posing. In this case, each of the ladies brought their respective flags…but the best imagery of the shoot comes from their “rainbow” shoes…
