Help Portrait – A worldwide movement

We will be participating in Help Portrait 2009. The reason I have joined the countless other photographers who have posted this to their sites is that I want more photographers to join. This is such a worthwhile cause and will make thousands, if not millions of people feel special this year. What is Help Portrait? It’s a movement that was started this year in the states, that encourages every photographer to go out, and take somebody’s portrait, for free. No hidden costs, just set up and take photos of people who otherwise couldn’t afford a professional photo.

{M & A} by Ottawa Wedding Photographer at the Britannia Yacht Club

Last weekend was a big one in the BH Photography camp–firstly, we booked two fabulous weddings back to back (Friday evening and Saturday) and the latter was our first same sex ceremony. We were both nervous and excited, because if you were to meet Matt and Alex, they are two very savvy guys who were planning the party of the year! That being said, our “first time” nerves were quickly settled at our consultation over coffee when the guys eagerly gave us some amazing ideas for our own wedding in October. Matt & Alex chose the Britannia Yacht Club as their venue and the staff did an amazing job! Every last detail was taken care of, however there was a rumour of one tablecloth being upside down. It was only a rumour…

{Val & Marc} Ottawa Wedding Photographer at the Renfrew Golf Club

We first met Val & Marc at the spring Wedding Show. Ivanette had a great long chat with them about their wedding plans for October 2010, and how they were looking for a photographer who thought outside the box. Yes, originally this happy couple was going to take their time to plan their wedding.  However, about a month later they contacted us, stating that Marc was to be deployed with the military and they had to move their wedding up to this year. After many frantic phone calls, we finally found a date that worked for their venue, the Renfrew Golf Club, as well as ourselves.  Val & Marc had a wonderful (but chilly) ceremony and reception that highlighted their personalities and the love they have for each other.

{Jamie & Matt} Ottawa Wedding Photographer at The Carleton Heritage Inn

Well, what a party! We had the honour of being Jamie & Matt’s official wedding photographers this past weekend in Carleton Place. Jamie has been Ivanette’s esthetician since we moved to Almonte and has become a great friend since. Matt and Jamie have been together for seven years, so when he proposed to Jamie last October she called us to make sure we were available for her wedding. Matt is a volunteer fireman with Carleton Place, and well, us firefighters can sure throw a party! I’m sure the good folks over at the Carleton Heritage Inn are going to need a break after two firefighter weddings in a row!

{Jennifer & Bobby } Ottawa Wedding Photographer at the Canadian Golf and Country Club

We had the absolute pleasure of photographing Jennifer and Bobby’s wedding this past weekend. Jennifer first met us at the Carp Fair and fell in love with our wedding photography. The best part of the story, she wasn’t even engaged! So when Bobby proposed this past winter, she dug our card out and gave us a call. With Jennifer’s energy and Bobby’s easy going attitude they made our job easy and a joy to photograph! Luckily the weather broke for a gorgeous ceremony at the Canadian Golf and Country Club! Here is a sneak peek at their wedding:

{Jessica} Ottawa Wedding Photographer – Trash the Dress!

So every once in a while as a photographer, I just have to get out there and shoot for fun, stress free.

One day last winter I came home to find three wedding dresses hanging in my kitchen, yes three! Just as I was wondering what was going on Ivanette walked around the corner and said “Look what I found on sale!”. Yes, the famous words women use to justify everything. Turns out “on sale” was actually because the boutique was liquidating the previous season’s samples, and she really did hit on a huge bargain!
