I’m great!! Thank you for being here.
Thank you for noticing. Yes. I am! This website is more for Elopements, destination weddings and lifestyle sessions. It’s a more natural (and raw) style of photography. I’m still the same ol’ bubbly self, however.
Absolutely. I already traveled all over the place. I’ve been all over Canada, Costa Rica, Punta Cana, Portugal, Italy and even had a wedding at Disney world! I absolutely love traveling and I reserve it for my weddings. If you are getting married in a place I haven’t been, chances are, you’ll get a pretty good deal on the package.
I only take a maximum of 20 weddings per year. This is to make sure that my attention is focused on my brides and grooms. Too many weddings are too much retouching! I also only book 1 wedding per week end. That way it’s about you and only you.
Retouching is a complicated word. It often gets mistaken with Color-processing. No. I do not retouch the images from your session/wedding. I do, however, color-correct them. This means that I bring them in Adobe Lightroom and change the color, white balance and retouch a few obvious blemishes that you may have on important photos. But that’s it. All the photos that you see on my website are color-corrected. Unless it’s BOUDOIR. that, I bring into Abode Photoshop and do retouching for you.
No. The reason for this is simple. Black and White photos have a timeless feel to it. Although i loooveee Black and White, I feel like not every photo deserves to be converted. In short, 85% of your photos will be in beautiful color, and you will receive the black and white version of the photos that deserve that classic feel.
Nop, I do not give out photos that aren’t retouched. Never.
Yes, the High-Rez digital files in the Gallery are available in all of my packages. Images are selected and edited at my discretion. I reserve the right to edit and release only those images deemed creditable as professional in quality and within my artistic standards. For Portrait and Lifestyle sessions, photos are sold separately. Those sessions have a sitting fee pricing and then, images can be either purchased separately or in bulk.
For weddings, there’s an average of between 50-70 images per hour – more than a photo per minute! So you don’’t have to worry, your event will be very well documented! Final amount can vary between 500-900 for weddings and 75-200 for Lifestyle sessions. Boudoir are all sold seperately.
I require a 500$ deposit for small weddings along with a signed contract to book the date. This deposit makes sure that I book your wedding date in my calendar for you. It promises you that all my time will be given to you. The remaining balance due 7 days prior to the wedding date. Please remember that dates are limited. They are first-come, first-serve … booked once I receive the contract and reservation fee.
For sessions, there’s a 100$ deposit and a signed contract to book it. The balance is due on the day of the session and can be paid by Interac E-transfer, personal check or cash.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
No sorry, I don’t. I feel that to get the best photographs, you need to specialize in something and I choose lifestyle. I feel that it’s very important to find someone who is specialized in Newborns to trust with your little one. It could be dangerous for the baby if not! Newborn photography has to have a studio with the right temperature, has to have safety measures and requires a LOT of retouching. Most of the photos you see online are COMPOSITES. Noone should EVER leave a hand off the baby. If you are looking to getting photos of your little one, let me know and I’ll help you find the perfect photographer for you. Be aware of photographers that don’t use safety as a priority.
Generally, if it is just a light mist, we can proceed with the session. We actually shot a few weddings in the rain and the pictures turned out amazing! Bring along a clear umbrella just in case! I take couples inside local coffee shops, under bridges etc. until the rain passes. However, in the case of heavy downpours, we will re-schedule the session for another time. Despite what some people may think, cloudy days are fantastic for photos. Especially with my style of photography, which is much moodier than most.
YES! Photography is very tricky and it doesn’t happen by Magic! If you like my work and want me to photograph you or your family in my style.. we shoot at sunset. Mid-day has very harsh and white lighting and it just doesn’t produce the same type of photos… so… that’s it! Sunset! For more info.. contact me! If you have any other questions, Just contact me using the CONTACT ME button.
In your own home! The reason is simple. I want to photograph you in your environment. I want to show you that where you live, and how you live, is amazing. With my other photography company, I photographed people in my bright white studio. It’s was beautiful, however, every photo looked the same. A part of you is lost in that type of situation and my goal is really to photography YOU.
Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Thank you for the wedding photos. We are completely stunned at how beautiful they all are. You were a total champ. You make everyone feel so comfortable and it really comes through in all the photos. You captured all the moments so perfectly. Some moments we weren't even expecting to have, you got them! It's amazing that we can look through the photos and basically re-live every moment. You did an incredible, amazing job. We couldn't have chosen a better photographer.
The photos you took are unbelievable. Your exuberance for the trade [of photography] comes through in the pictures you take. We are so happy that you were part of our wedding day [ in winnipeg ]
With your help, the day would not have flowed as well as it did. You helped to make the day fun, kept us calm and most importantly helped to ensure we were in the right place at the right time.
We can't thank you enough for the amaazziinggg pictures. I've told you before but seriously, you are amazing at what you do! I can't wait to share these with everyone.
Well... There are no words to describe how amazing our wedding and engagement pictures are! We just looked at them together tonight for the first time and we got to re-live our wedding day! Isa, you truly are an incredibly talented photographer! We cannot thank you enough for capturing our wedding day [in punta cana] and we thank you for making sure we have the most wonderful memories for the rest of our lives. You are a gem!!
Isabella is such a sweetheart. Since we were planning from England, emails and phone calls were our only options. She really just rolled with us and made the planning with her feel so easy and seamless. She is so easy going and doesn't take the whole thing too seriously which really made us feel relaxed and able to enjoy it all! One thing we really liked about her style was that we never really felt that we were being "photographed". We never felt the camera on us, which allowed us to be ourselves while she captured priceless moments. We can recommend Ella Photography a zillion times over as Isabella will make all your requests and visions come true. It was a privilege
We would like to thank you for making us so comfortable and for creating intimacy with the photos you took. You guys know that the bride and groom don't get much time together on such a day... So, when we were posing for the photos of just us, you were really able to give us that moment we were hoping for... Honestly there are not enough words to give you the proper praise. You were the most flexible and pleasant team we worked with through this process and we really appreciate everything you did.
Beautiful pictures of a wonderful day! Brought tears to our eyes again. Love the ones of everyone getting ready! And the rings!! What awesome shots! So many great ones. Dare I say "You're the shit, Isabella!" Cuz I did!!
We cannot thank you enough for our amazing photos. We are speechless... Every single picture is so beautiful. We feel like we are reliving the best day of our lives.
I want to take a moment to thank you for everything... The pictures, the album... But also for who you are and the wonderful attitude you have when you're working. Everyone thought you were talented and I believe you have a gift. We feel the passion you have for your work. I hope you realize that you made the difference in one of the most important moments in my life and I thank you for alllll of this.
