Some of our favorite weddings are out in the country and along the Seaway. The bride is a prominent Toronto newscaster. Coverage was by Serge.

Major’s Hill Park and Hampton Inn


The Hampton Inn seems to be booking quite a few weddings these days…the look is industrial
chic if you shoot at the Inn…but there is a great park nearby we really like.

Rockeries and The Courtyard Restaurant


Some locations are trickier than others as far as shooting. Unless you know what you are doing and have the equipment to pull it off, a lot of locations like Montebello, The Chateau Laurier and the Courtyard Restaurant tend to look like giant black holes. Experience is the key…1000 weddings to date!!!….and counting.

Haiti Fundraiser at the NAC

Last night at the NAC we volunteered as the official photographers to a Fundraiser for Haiti.
I have been mesmerized by the tragedy in Haiti for some time and leapt at the chance to help.

The dinner, which featured a fabulous meal created by a dozen of Ottawa’s top chefs raised over 60K in one evening for Care Canada’s work in Haiti. This amount will be matched by the
Federal Government, meaning that this one nights effort raised an eighth of a million dollars!

The people from CARE really do care… and their thanks was really the icing on the cake.

Museum of Civilization Korean Wedding.

I have always felt that the best way to compare photographers is to see a whole wedding, not just a couple of shots…
Serge, a veteran photographer at the studio covered this wedding last fall. Among other claims to fame he is Francophone and was once the PM’s staff photojournalist.

Enjoy

Ottawa Photographers

Comparing photographers is a daunting task. Anyone can shoot a thousand shots on a wedding and get a few good ones. Unfortunately you can`t compare what one photographer will do given identical conditions and the same subject….unless….a person is photographed a few days apart in the same room by three different photographers.

Melanie Aitken is a prominent local executive who is smart, pretty and has a great boardroom. Here`s my version and two local wedding photojournalists shots.

There is an old saying that a photograph is worth a thousand words. I will let the photographs speak for themselves.

Winter Wedding at the Chateau Laurier

Remember that minus 30 day around Christmas… We were out with an adventurous couple shooting on Parliament Hill. Their Chateau Laurier winter wedding was a great challenge for both the couple and our equipment…it was an icy blast…but a blast to shoot.

Dog Portrait Ottawa


Photographing animals requires some special skills. I`m a cat person and I can tell you that
cats are the toughest. Next comes small dogs. Here is one amazing little Pom we shot for an
Ottawa breeder who was featured on the cover of this months Dog Digest. Shooting for magazine covers is tough since their technical standards are quite high. We love the challenge!
Got animals…bring em along for your next family portrait…

Merry Christmas 2009


Its been an amazing year at the studio. Weddings are up 50%, we shot over 20 magazine covers, partied with Kiss, and Shannon Tweed, covered the Olympic Torch run in Iqaluit, shot Alex Trebec and the Prime Ministers in TO and got to meet some amazing Ottawans.
My writing was published in the top ten newspapers in Canada and I was chosen as a photojournalist by Canadian Press to cover Ottawa. To top it all off, I finally got in my family’s
annual Christmas card shot….

Best of the Holiday Season to All….
