Hilton Lac Leamy & MacKenzie King Estate Wedding – Album DesignJuly 22, 2014

Karine and Luis had a beautiful wedding at the Hilton Lac Leamy. With stunning floral from Flowers Talk and charming harvest boxes o f peach inspired decor, their day was full of close family and friends and lots of laughs….and last but not least – Fireworks! They were able to take advantage of the opportunity for a private viewing of the fireworks competition taking place at the Hilton Lac Leamy and we were able to capture it with perfection!

Here is the album design created for the couple’s wedding album. Stay tuned for an updated post of the actual album itself which features a metallic cover (the first image in the design) with a complimentary bronze leather. We can”t wait to share the final product but for now, here is a preview!

Wedding Guestbooks – Engagement SessionsJuly 15, 2014

Engagement sessions are a cornerstone of how we begin our work with you as a couple. They allow us to get to know you and to experience what it’s like to be captured as a couple by a professional photographer. People are always surprised at how much fun they have and how at ease they feel. We offer engagement photography sessions in our packages because we feel that helps you feel more at ease on the wedding day and it is why our clients look so comfortable in our photographs.

Here are some guestbooks that we have designed for our clients this summer:

Brianna and Shane – Married at Saunders Farm

Andree and Byron – Married at St. Patricks Basilica and the reception at the National Art Gallery of Canada

We think that our beautiful linen albums are a wonderful way to commemorate your engagement.
If you would like more information on working with us for your 2014-15 wedding we would love to hear from you!

Fine Art Wedding Albums – Custom Canvas panel with Luxurious LeatherFebruary 8, 2013

The finished product of a wedding is not the USB of images, for me the final product is the perfected versions of those images coming together into your wedding story in an heirloom quality album that will be cherished as you grow old and share the story with your families. I did not heistate to have a beautiful wedding album for my own wedding and have never questioned it’s value and the joy I get from sharing the images of my husband and I at this very special milestone. I am so excited to share with you some of the beautiful custom albums we created with many of our clients this year from our favorite professional album companies. Here we are showing our canvas panel and leather album from Eric and Leanne’s wedding. We used a buttery neutral leather that would compliment the warmth of the wedding day and in the image they chose for their cover.  The canvas panel is seamless with the leather which continues along the spine and onto the back of the book.

Green Photographer – Ottawa Wedding PhotographerApril 24, 2011

A green photographer? Even though we rarely work in film anymore and mostly work digitally doesn’t mean we don’t leave a carbon footprint. There are many ways to be a greener photographer from the materials that we use, the products that we offer and the way we do our business.


Part of the m photography philosophy, is to bring you a stylish mix of products that are both completely custom while being earth friendly…(I even offer vegan album options…seriously :). Our packaging, brochures and business cards are printed on post consumer recycled paper. While I would love a shiny pretty bag like the one I received from my recent Holt Renfrew purchase, I use stylish paper bags (yes I put the two in the same sentence) and CD cases made of recycled materials and  they easily bio degrade once you are done with them. But I am working on some re-usable packaging ideas…


I used the amazing eneloop rechargeable batteries…and LOTS of them to power my strobes, wireless keyboards and transmitters…(take note photographers…if you are NOT using these amazing batteries…YOU MUST! Not only do these batteries hold their power for twice as long, there are hundreds of batteries not making their way to toxic disposal sites). This is a no-brainer…


Running a green business means that I am mindful of how I use energy – both natural gas and electricity.  We never leave our computers running and have recently switched over to an LED big screen  and monitors here at the studio. In addition, planning my routes to reduce gas usage is another mindful way to both keep expenses down and spare the environment my extra trips around town.  


The studio is furnished with many restoration industrial pieces that have been re-purposed as a TV stand, filing cabinet and side table, and our main couch in the meeting area is a lovely piece that we rescued from the curb and had recovered in exquisite and earth friendly Belgian linen – hard to believe the sturdy hardwood frame would have otherwise have been in the landfill.


One of the last things that I like to do to reduce my impact on the environment as both a photographer and business owner is to coordinate all the shipping of my products so that all can be sent in one shipment as opposed to many resulting in fewer trips to the m photography studio for the UPS man. But, even better still, using labs and suppliers as close to home as possible is another great way to be a green photographer…


Whether a photographer or other type of business, there are mindful ways to be as environmental as possible and personally, I think it is important to know how, what we do every day, impacts how we will live tomorrow. And if you are a bride planning your wedding with green options in mind…don’t forget about choosing a green photographer too.


Have more ideas on being a green photographer? I would love to hear more…
