Restaurant Eighteen Wedding Photos

Restaurant Eighteen Wedding Photos

Today is the first anniversary of Sean and Kat. So, I decided to repost some of their Restaurant Eighteen wedding photos on my blog to commemorate their special day.

It was such a beautiful day. Kat looked gorgeous, Sean looked handsome and the wedding party looking fantastic. It was all picture perfect. I was able to capture so many great shots of their wedding. And I also got some pretty fun ones during their wedding reception.

I hope you enjoy looking at these wedding photos.

Ottawa Elopement Sneak Peek

Ottawa Elopement Sneak Peek

So, this just happened this past weekend. Congrats to these two lovelies for going ahead and getting married on their planned wedding day. Nothing can stop them–not even COVID. Here’s their Ottawa elopement sneak peek. More photos to follow soon.

This elopment wasn’t initially in their plans. They were supposed to have their dream wedding at Adelina on the exact same day. However, we all know the story of the worldwide mayhem created by this whole covid mess. Last minute, they decided to just have their small ceremony on their wedding day and they’ll have their dream wedding and reception next July. They’ll have the best of both worlds. I look forward to also photographing their special day next year with their family and friends.

If you’re planning an intimate wedding or an elopement with just the two of you, I’d love to hear from you. Contact me for my pricing guide.

Summer Ottawa Arboretum Pregnancy Pictures

Summer Ottawa Arboretum Pregnancy Pictures

So, a few days ago I had the pleasure to take some summer Ottawa arboretum pregnancy pictures with this lovely couple. This was my first portrait session since the COVID shutdown. As of June 12th, photographers are back open in the 2nd phase of reopening. Yay! I’m so happy to finally be able to work again.

It was a beautiful sunny day. It was swealtering all that day, but by the evening, it was so much nicer and with a little breaze blowing. (I thought for sure I’d be a sweaty mess by the end of the shoot. But it all turned out fine. I still looked faily normal and not all wilted. Ha! Ha!)

These two did so well in front of the camera. Most people rarely get in front of the lens of a professional photographer, so they’re shy for the shoot. However, they did exceptionally well, as you can see by their photos. I got some genuine smiles. I think they look fantastic in their photos and I’m so happy that I could capture these special memories for them. After all, this is their first child.

I absolutely love shooting maternity sessions. They’re right up there with engagement sessions as far as my favourite type of portrait sessions to shoot. I guess I really like working with couples.

I look forward to working with these two lovelies again when their little one arrives in the world. Until then, I hope that you enjoy these photos.

If you like these photos or the photo location, please check out some of my other work:

Book a Session

If you’re looking to do an outdoor portrait session, I’d love to hear from you. You can either contact me or check out my pricing page to see what session you would like to book. I shoot outdoor maternity, family and baby portraits. I also shoot cake smash sessions.

Ottawa Photographers are back in Business

Ottawa Photographers are back in Business

Hi everyone. Ottawa photographers are back in business!!!! Yay!!!! As of June 12th, photographers are allowed to photograph people and events up to 10 people in the Ottawa-Gatineau area (provided social distancing is adhered to). This is FANTASTIC news!!!! Now that the weather is nice, people want to have their photos taken outdoors and us Ottawa photographers want to provide you with beautiful photos.

As we all know, it’s been very hard for most of us to have to stay home and socially isolate ourselves. Heck, it has been hard for people, including myself, to not work. So, I’m thrilled that we’re at least beginning to reopen.

I’d love to photograph outdoor portrait sessions (family, maternity, cake smash, engagement, elopements). Contact me to book a session. I look forward to hearing from you!

The Problem with “Reasonably Priced” Ottawa Wedding Photographers

The Problem with “Reasonably Priced” Ottawa Wedding Photographers

I recently read an article by Burgh Brides and couldn’t help but relate to the entire article, regarding ‘reasonable’. Everything that they mentioned is SO true! So, I decided to write about the problem with “Reasonably Priced” Ottawa wedding photographers.

I see so many requests on Facebook groups of couples looking for ‘reasably priced’ photographers, or a photographer ‘that won’t cost an arm and a leg’. I have to say that most photographeres find this insulting. Basically, what that implies is that we’re either not worth the prices we charge, or our prices are higher than they should be.

ottawa-wedding-photos-first-glimpse

Most couples think that whenever a vendor hears that something is for a wedding that they automatically hike their prices. That’s not true. We don’t just hike our fees for price gouging from a couple planning their wedding. Nope. There are so many reasons why wedding vendors charge what they charge to perform a service for a wedding.

The cost of doing business

For myself, I have quite a few extra costs involved when I shoot weddings as opposed to shooting a regular portrait session. I hire a second shooter, rent an extra lens, have a company colour correct my photos (I do the rest of the post production work myself), make a custom USB with case for each couple. There’s also gas to pay (which includes me scouting all locations prior to your wedding day), parking, misc items. Then there’s also the cost of buying extra equipment (multiple camera bodies, lenses, flashes and memory cards). There’s also the cost to get a tuneup for my equipment (FYI, Nikon charges $400 per lens/camera body to have it serviced.)

museum-of-nature-ottawa-wedding-photographers

Think of your actual investment

The most expensive extra cost to me is hiring a second photographer to shoot with me the entire time I’m there. This not only makes it possible to cover two different locations for getting ready photos. It’s also a great way to ensure:

  • Having an extra set of photos from the wedding day is the perfect backup plan. Why? In case something happens to my own wedding images (knock on wood).
  • Everything is covered during our shooting time. Sometimes things fall behind. Or, there isn’t enough room in the tight timeline for me to take photos of everything myself. (This happens a lot). For example, one wedding didn’t allow enough time for me to shoot reception details or guest pictures during cocktail hour because I was shooting the formal portraits during that time. So, my second shooter was in charge of shooting photos of the guests and detail shots.
  • Different perspectives of the same event are captured. With two photographers, one can capture the expressions on the bride’s face, while the other gets the expression of the groom’s face during the ceremony or first look, etc. It’s also nice to get different angles of the same event.

I hope this explains more about where wedding vendors are coming from with their pricing. Are you currently looking for a wedding photographer?If so, I’d love to hear from you. Contact me, and I’ll email you my wedding photo pricing guide.

Kind words from an Ottawa wedding client

Ottawa Wedding Client Testimonials

You can check out more photos from their wedding at Mill Street Brew Pub as well as their engagement photos at the Ottawa Arboretum.
