The Nutcracker /Ottawa 2012/Merry Christmas Ottawa.

The Nutcracker from paul couvrette on Vimeo.

I confess. I am a Dad first and a photographer/businessman second.

Like most parents, I attended the Nutcracker to watch my daughters first performance on the NAC stage . The video above is simply a few snaps I did, mostly to record a moment in
time that would have been lost forever. The point of this ballet is not really about the fine art of dance. It is about kids who work really hard to get onstage and perform an old chestnut
that many dancers think of as a cliche. The Nutcracker is more than that, however. It is a story of great imagination…of the triumph of love over evil.

In this Christmas Season..it is a story that we oftimes brush aside in our cynical times.

The children, however, believe in this fable and their glee is the stuff of our hopes and dreams….

Ottawa Fashion Photography.

Some people might think it`s a plus to know how to shoot fashion when you are photographing portraits and weddings…

We shot this 8 page spread for Ottawa`s Capital Style in our Centretown Ottawa studio. Editorial and photojournalistic photography is something we really enjoy…and we have done over 400 magazine covers to date.

Ottawa Engagement Portraits

Ottawa is a great place to shoot engagement portraits. A short walk and you get both urban and rural looks in one shoot. These were done by Rachelle, our main photographer, who will also be shooting their wedding in the summer of 2013.

Ottawa Wedding Photojournalism.

….Here is a candid from one of our summer weddings. A great coverage is a mix of photojournalism and portraiture. Oftimes we need two photographers on weddings just to make certain that we can record both
styles on a single day. Shooting a wedding properly requires a lot more talent and skill than it did in the days of doing simple lineups…it`s a great challenge, but fun.
