Hi! I'm Rob, a film & fine art inspired wedding photographer based in Ottawa, Canada. I take a photojournalism approach to wedding photography to capture genuine moments (whether small or large) and to tell real stories. As an Honours graduate of the Algonquin College Photography Program with a background in multimedia, I also enjoy working with different types of visual art.
What’s your style of photography?
I take a film & fine art inspired approach to wedding photography. It's a blend of photojournalism with a little bit of directed photography as I prefer to capture natural and unscripted moments, but I also provide the creative direction needed for more traditional formal portraits. When it comes to editing, I enjoy warm tones and contrast to help bring out colour, and added grain for texture.
What equipment do you work with?
The cameras I use are a Canon 5D MK IV and a Canon 6D; both full frame DSLR’s. I use an assortment of Canon and Sigma prime lenses such as a 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and a 135mm lens. For lighting, I use an on-camera flash.
Will there be two photographers?
A second photographer is available as an add-on for all of my full day wedding packages.
Will the final images be edited?
Yes! Every single image you receive will be edited; cropped to a print-friendly aspect ratio, straightened, exposure & colour corrected, and some light retouching when needed. If more intensive editing is requested, additional fees may be applicable.
Do you offer shorter coverage than your full day wedding packages?
Absolutely, I offer partial day packages that begin at 2 hours of coverage.
WHen will our photos be ready?
My turnaround time for delivering photos is within 4-6 weeks of the date of your wedding. I like to keep my wedding clients updated with my editing progress by informing them a few times along my way to completion.
Do we get a sneak peek?
Yes! You will receive a few sneak peek photos within 1 week of your wedding.
How will we receive our photos?
Once your photos are ready, I will email you to let you know! Inside that email, there will be a link to your own password protected online viewing gallery where you can download all the photos at once or individually, in high-res (print ready) or web-sized (social media ready) digital files.
ARE OUR PHOTOS SAFE?
Safe 4 times over, to be exact. Along with the hard drive I work off of, I also backup all photos onto 3 separate hard drives.
Do you offer albums or prints?
Currently, I am only offering individual prints. Just let me know if you're interesting in have prints done!
Will you be posting images online?
Yes, I will likely share some of your wedding photos on my website and Instagram account. However, if this is an issue for you, please just give me a heads up!
what info do you need from us?
When filling out my contact form, I ask for a few details about your wedding day such as the date, location, etc. When it comes to your official wedding day, usually a week before the date I will ask for your full wedding day itinerary. This itinerary should include start times, venue locations, contact information, any photographic restrictions, etc. I also ask for your list of formal group shots!
