Ottawa Couple Photography/Studio Shoots.

While outdoor engagement shoots in Ottawa are mighty cool looking, its nice to have a real studio for those days when its..well..kind of cool, rainy, and downright nasty. Besides, studio shots have a quality
all their own that tends to focus a bit more on the couple and their personalities than the scene.

Wedding Dreams Magazine/ Digital Photography Article by Paul Couvrette

 

Wedding Dreams, Canada`s National wedding magazine is headquartered right here in Ottawa. I was thrilled and honored to be asked  to write an article on choosing a wedding photographer in the digital age and hope it explains some of the mysteries behind the process.

Please download and print the article if you are an upcoming bride…perhaps send it to friends who are about to start the research into what I believe is one of the toughest decisions in wedding planning.

Ottawa NAC Wedding Slideshow

The NAC and the Chateau Laurier…two of Ottawa`s “wedding institutions”. We photographed this wedding with two photogs…a mix of portraits and photojournalism. Both locations are faves for us, since
we love the idea that you can shoot in either rain or shine.

Ottawa Executive Portraits

 

Photographing business executives is one of the mainstays of our studio. We operate the largest studio in the city with a 4000 sq ft Centretown Ottawa location.

This shot was done for one of our commercial clients as PR for an upcoming TV show. Commanding the attention of execs who have a high premium on their
time is all part of the process and our favorite specialty. We shoot on location with a fully portable studio as well as at our Gladstone Street studio.

Why anyone would want to send their boss on a mission to the suburbs wasting gas and the execs time and having them do a shoot in a makeshift “studio” is beyond my comprehension, but as
they say….let the buyer beware.

A great portrait is worth hundreds of times its price.  Over the life of a Real Estate agent, Consultant, Author or a Lawyers portrait they would have invested tens of thousands of
dollars in printing, online and distribution fees for that one image and have generated hundreds of thousand of dollars based in part of the public`s perception of that image.

In todays world of social media and online imaging it is simply bad business to have a less than fantastic portrait.
