Wedding at the Courtyard…dress by McCaffrey…photography by Paul Couvrette.
We shoot a broad range of portraits, from engagement and boudoir to corporate execs…The studio is large enough to do groups of 40 and is located right in Centretown Ottawa with lots of easy access and parking at our door.
This set of shots is for our longtime clients at District Realty who are updating their website. We have done work for them for over 20 years, so I imagine they like what we do and it works for them. Nice to have a client that uses our services for both corporate portraits and architectural shoots…
Comparing wedding photographers is no easy task. We think the number one question should be…”How will the studio capture our day?”
Frankly, anyone half decent can go to a wedding, shoot hundreds of digital files and come up with a dozen shots on a Facebook Fan page that look good. We train our photographers to nail every shot…period.
Telling the whole story, from romantic portraits to great candids is what we are all about. Want to compare…then look at a whole album right here or better yet, call and visit our Centretown studio to see dozens of examples of client albums that tell the whole story of how and why we are the longest standing studio in Ottawa.
Choosing a wedding photographer is a serious business…but once that`s over…let`s have some fun!
We shot these for the NFL in Ottawa in our first season of using a photo booth setup. Our system is different in that we can do large groups plus we can not only apply logos, but print 5 by 7`s onsite right away. This works great for conventions, charities, galas and weddings.
Here is a sneak peek at a small informal wedding at The Studio Cafe captured by Lorien from Couvrette Studio.
Contrary to popular opinion, we don`t just shoot those big glitzy Italian, Indian and Greek weddings at the Chateau and the Westin, but cover the
entire range of celebrations. We have covered waterside weddings with a total of 4 guests to a NYC event with two thousand…
That said, when choosing a photographer, it is oft said…”It`s only a small wedding…. so photographs are no big deal.”
A couple of things need to be said about that.
First…Small Weddings deserve just as much attention as large ones…we think they are just as special. Second…it is better to have a talented photographer at a cosy event for three hours than an untalented one at a glitzy affair for ten hours. Give us a call…you might be surprised at how reasonable it is to hire a Couvrette Studio photographer for your event.
Creating a calendar for the Ottawa Redblacks was an interesting challenge. I created the first ever calendar for the Ottawa Roughriders over 25 years ago and was asked to work on the first Redblacks calendar given not only my photographic skills but also my understanding of how far to go with this theme in today`s society. Cheerleading is a hot-button topic and what most people do not understand is that these cheer teams are composed of both men and women athletes. They not only look good…they are people who contribute a lot of time to training for the routines and a lot more in community relations. Are they sexy looking…yes. The key however is that they are also glamorous, healthy accomplished men and women and that is how I tried to portray them. To date, on social media we have seen two complaints…out of 25,000 fans….I guess we succeeded!
