Just what DO we charge…

Most people that call or email start by asking us about prices. My guess is that the general public don`t really know where to begin when starting the search for a photographer to cover their wedding, portrait or special event. They could talk about style, mood, talent but they ask about prices because its such a rare purchase that they really don`t know where to start.

We do post some sample packages online on the Wedding Site under Pricing, but even those are just guidelines. Frankly, we customize most of the packages to each clients needs and this can only be done once you sit down with us and look over the countless sizes, finishes, album and frames we can offer.

Portraits are even trickier to price….First off, did you prefer studio shots or on location. Second, can you make it during business hours M-F weekdays or do we need to book it for sunrise at your cottage on Big Rideau Lake. No,its certainly not a big box store approach here…everthing is custom. That said, our least expensive way to get the family together is a weekday studio session in the studio for $95 and a file for your Facebook page for $45…..grand total for a fantastic memory $140.
Sure, people can buy prints, frames, albums and a whole raft of great souvenirs.
An 8 by 10 for example runs $75….
Want us on a Sunday AM at your cottage…now you are looking at $395. Want a 16 by 20 on canvas…that will run $795.
Whether you are booking the simplest headshot in the studio or a shot at your villa…we still put 100% into getting a great image.

Brookstreet Weddings.

They say good news comes in threes…This summer it seems the hottest spot in town for weddings is Brookstreet, Brookstreet, Brookstreet.

We just shot an amazing East Indian wedding at Brookstreet and were very impressed with everything from the decor and food to the excellent service. Best of all though,having shown them our recent coverage, they put us on their preferred vendors list…nice.

Back to the Future.

I was just digging in my archives for a stock shot and came upon this cover. I believe it is the only cover Macleans ever did featuring a Canadian wedding. In these days of reality TV and covers showing Britney’s private parts this may seem a bit tame…but hey, this is Ottawa and here in the capital it was, of course, scandalous. Thank goodness I covered up her knees with the bouquet.

Yes, we have photographed the most expensive high society weddings in Ottawa, but also the backyard nuptials of a couple who ran a chip wagon. It’s all fun and besides I like both poutine and sushi.

Studio Portraits

Portraits in the studio are boring and traditional…at least thats what people who don’t have studios seem to say on their websites…lol.
Yes, we have fun on location too, but its nice to have the option in case of bad weather and frankly we can shoot in the studio for a much better price than on location.
