  It’s finally here – my best Ottawa Wedding photography for 2015. I’m not sure if it’s fair to say it’s my best, but these are the shots that I liked for various reasons. It’s not February yet so I believe that it is still okay to post a best of 2015 entry!  If someone can […]

A Wedding in Bobcaygeon for Tausha & Justin

Posted by in Wedding

If you’re not from Bobcaygeon the first thing you think about when you hear the name is, “why does that sound so familiar?”. If you’re old enough to remember, it’s also the title of a popular Tragically Hip song. Now you know. The last time that I saw Tausha and Justin, we were shooting their […]

A Parliament Engagement Shoot for Tausha & Justin

Posted by in Engagement, Portrait

  Tausha and Justin had their Parliament engagement shoot a couple of weeks ago. It was another one of those November days where you expect to be freezing the whole time but we were actually sweating from walking around so much. The next time that I see these two will be on New Year’s Eve […]

Matt & Rej – Le Belvedere Wedding

  Matt & Rej had their Belvedere Wedding in Wakefield Quebec in October. It’s times like these that I wish I was a better writer.

What our clients say...

Here are some kind words from some of our clients.

Pat and I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work on our wedding day and after. The photos and album are stunning! We had so much fun working with both of you!

Many thanks,

Sarah and Pat

Andrew was all that you could ask for in a wedding photographer.  He really understood what we were looking for and was very calm and relaxed on the wedding day. He has a unique ability to put everyone at ease (with a little humour) and truly brought out the best in our guests. He took some amazing photos, both posed and candid. We could not have asked for anything more.

- Jessica & Steven

Hi Andrew,

Just a little word to tell you how much we were impressed by your professional attitude.
During the time you where with us, you look liked you where enjoying your job and us as well…

You where kind, calm, funny, natural and possess a fantastic sense of humour.
Andrée Anne and Cam where relaxed and very natural around you. They were both more than impressed by you and by your assistant.

In fact yesterday, after a post-wedding debriefing, we arrived at the conclusion that we could adopt you…

So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much.

Andrew,

Once again, thank you for the beautiful shots you took while we were waiting for our perfect boy and when he was 19 days old. Your work is amazing and we are grateful you captured special moments with your camera. We could not imagine another photographer to work with us. You’re very special to our family and we appreciate your beautiful work. Hope all is well with you and your girls!!

Andrew,

Your photography speaks for itself: you are an amazing photographer. The wedding day was a blur but throughout the day you were there capturing the key moments as discussed.

You and your assistant Jessica were upbeat and enthusiastic making the day that much more enjoyable.

Thank you so much for the amazing memories that you captured with such artistry.
