Ottawa Florists we recommend for our Weddings.

People have been asking about florists.

First to come to mind is Silver Rose…classic elegance and excellent service.
http://www.thesilverrose.com/ Also look at Langdons in Alta Vista as well as Phulero Dola.
Out in the country…try the nice folks at http://www.poshpedalsflorist.com/

One bit of advice you should really heed. Have your flowers delivered early. We have seen
at least five weddings this summer whose flowers arrived half way through the house photo session. I have no idea why someone would not deliver on time…

Here’s an idea. Why not get them early.
If the florist says they have to get to work earlier to prep em…too bad.

Wedding on a boat on the Ottawa River.


This summer we have a few brides who have discovered that not only is a boat wedding kinda fun, but the prices are really reasonable for catering too. Elena shot this great image and now has a second boat wedding this summer…I`m jealous.

Candids VS Photojournalism


Just so we are on the same page when discussing wedding styles…the top photo is wedding photojournalism….shooting unposed images. The bottom shot, while a lot of fun, is what is now
being called “candid” groups…ie more fun in posing. These need time and a cool location. People do not naturally do the things that you see in a lot of wedding photos…if you invest the time, we can create some great images.

Portraits on Location

We have a large studio and that allows us to shoot some very big groups, but of course
a portrait at home or on location affords the client a little more convenience. This family have been studio portrait clients for many years and it was nice to finally shoot in their home and see the gallery of my work on their walls.

Ottawa actress Sonja Smits


Recently we spent a couple of days in the Picton area shooting portraits of Canadian
actress Sonja Smits for a travel promo. Sonja was great to work with and our Ontario
“summer” even let up for awhile so I could get these shots. Check out the current issue
of Ottawa Life for the full spread.

Executive Portrait of a BC Lawyer.

We photograph a lot of Judges and Lawyers. I photographed the wedding of Chief Justice
Barbara Mc Lachlin and the family portraits of hundreds of local Judges and Lawyers.
The way I see it..if a lawyer writes you a testimonial it should give you double bonus points…lol

Check it out… (scroll about half way down…)

Reputation, reputation,reputation.

The web is a great place to compare services, but it has its limitations. It doesn`t take much to set up a website or a blog with a few shots that look really cool.
Want the real story…..Google the actual names of a few photographers you like…then ignore their sites and see what others say about them, who has hired them in the past and what unbiased sources say about their work. Checking out the Ottawa Better Business bureau rating may really floor you…but don`t say we didn`t mention it.

You`ll learn a lot more by looking at words than looking at pretty pictures…even ours.

Here`s mine to start….
