FOR THE LOVEBIRDS - ENGAGEMENT/COUPLE SESSIONS

$150.00 + HST per person

1.5 hour - 2 hour session 

Contact us about discounted rates for parties larger than two

 

You’re both big on the outdoors, travel and the lush landscape of Algonquin. You’ve thought long and hard about how you should propose – a grand public gesture on the beaches of Belize, at your favourite “date night” restaurant or at your first kiss destination. You’ve thought of including your nearest and dearest in your proposal plan, but the conflicting opinions are daunting and have made the task seem overwhelming. 

 

You’re thinking of going back to the basics – to a sentimental place that you both have shared and have fostered a deep appreciation for – the solace of the forest. The plan is starting to look a lot like this: You ask your partner to marry you in an intimate setting amongst the pines (or even in a canoe), she/he tearfully accepts, you kiss and paddle off into the sunset. Sounds pretty easy, right? 

 

These things do not go without careful consideration and we’re here to help you craft the perfect moment in anticipation for your perfect day! 

 

We are no strangers to stealth, having trekked deep into the dense bush of Algonquin’s backcountry equip with telephoto lenses for wildlife viewing without breaking a branch or fumbling in twigs and mud. Our adventures have made us seasoned chameleons, capable of capturing your special moment – and keeping it a secret. 

 

Have you already proposed?  No problem!  Now it’s time to capture your engagement photoshoot in the wilderness of Algonquin Park. We are here to be your undercover agents, capturing every tear, laugh and smile along the way. 

 

Within one week of your shoot, we'll email you a link to an online gallery to view all images captured during the day. Your experience includes 5 professionally retouched, digital web ready images to download. - Printing options and additional digital image purchases will be discussed.

ALGONQUIN "BARK" - PET PHOTOGRAPHY

$150.00 + HST 

1.5 hour - 2 hour session 

*Each additional doggo family member saves 50% during same session

 

We all have invested in professional photography for special events and weddings, but we often neglect the every day adventures we share with our favourite family members - our fur babies.

We aim to capture the true spirit of your relationship with your pet - crafting playful action shots of your furry friends at the park, in the wilderness, in urban landscapes or even by the dock of your family cottage. We will work with you to capture captivating portraits and intimate moments worthy of hanging above your mantlepiece for years to come.

We're dog people - we want to bond with your pet. If permittable, we may even bring our own doggo, Indy, along for the ride to give your pet a playmate. It's important for us to familiarize ourselves with your pet to ensure when our camera's are presented we are capturing the essence of their rambunctious personality.


Within one week of your shoot, we'll email you a link to an online gallery to view all images captured during the day. Your experience includes 5 professionally retouched, digital web ready images to download. - Printing options and additional digital image purchases will be discussed.

ONE-ON-ONE ALGONQUIN PARK PHOTO GUIDED TOUR & CAMERA TRAINING 

$495.00 + HST - 6 hour session 

*Each additional person saves 50% (up to 3 extra people).

 

Algonquin Park is our playground. To us, it’s the quintessential getaway to the Canadian wilderness. 

 

Algonquin’s charm is everlasting - Spring canoe trips in search of trophy-sized trout and flourishing wildflowers; paddle boarding across clear waters en route to the remote island of Lake Of Two Rivers, Fall backpacking in peak leaf-changing season to witness the vibrant reds of sugar maples and the saturated yellows of birch trees, dancing figure-eights into the ice at Arrowhead Provincial Park, canopied by the deciduous forest and eating maple taffy from a fresh blanket of snow. Activities and opportunities to sightsee are bountiful in the Park. 

 

We’re offering a glimpse into our day-to-day through a personalized photo tour of Ontario’s most beloved Provincial Park. 

 

Our tour will begin with the sun - chasing the morning rays on the open road in pursuit of the elusive residents in the Park. Nothing is more magical than witnessing a moose appear out of the shadows and rolling fog of the morning, especially when surrounded by equally as breathtaking vistas. 

 

On foot, we’ll take the scenic route - utilizing historic techniques to analyze and interpret common signs of animal activity to track our desired critters into the serenity of the pines. From here, we’ll take a leisurely hike through some of Algonquin’s most infamous trails to seek wildlife footprints and photographic opportunities of the landscapes that have inspired so many artisans and historians alike. 

 

During our trek, we’ll also visit topics like camera settings, gear and wildlife photography best practices that we will then speed into action during our animal sightings, the ever-changing lighting situations and shifting landscapes throughout our journey. 

 

The fun doesn’t have to end here - you can also use this offering in conjunction with our Behind The Monitor Lightroom Training (description below) where we will take the images you’ve captured during our wilderness tour and apply modern editing techniques to make your unedited images into polished pieces of art. This training will be located 40 minutes outside the West Gate of Algonquin Park at our cozy cottage residence (near Dorset/Baysville) and will take up roughly three hours of your afternoon before we call it a wrap at sunset.

BEHIND THE MONITOR  - LIGHTROOM TRAINING

3 hour, in our home editing session - $295.00 + HST

*Each additional person saves 50% (up to 3 extra people)

 

Post processing can make a good image into a great image. We want to take the smoke and mirrors out of the editing process and remove the overwhelming nature of Lightroom sliders, layers, brushes and techniques. We're believers that education should be digestible, easy to apply and most importantly - fun!

Our classroom will be our own personal working and living space - in the heart of Lake of Bays, near Dorset and Baysville, and nestled amongst the pines surrounding our cozy cottage. 

This is easily becoming our most popular package as we guide you in tangible step-by-step editing tutorials by our wood-burning fireplace and record player. We'll spin classic vinyl for you, prep homemade goodies and give you a taste of the Muskoka charm alongside our playful Golden Aussie puppy, Indy. 

Originally designed as a group class, we are now offering a more intimate experience - 1:1 guidance or small group sessions (1-4). With this offering, you will have our dedicated expertise in a more relaxed environment. We'll be able to provide constructive feedback on your previous work and give you the confidence to enhance your visions from an unedited state to a polished piece of art.

 

Most of our clients will shoot in Algonquin Park all day and then join us in the evening for an editing session.  Or combine an Algonquin Park Photo Guided Tour with an editing session for the complete experience!

AIRBNB - COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES  - REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY
 

It’s no surprise that photos are one of the top reasons guests choose to book a property. 

One way to increase your Airbnb bookings quickly is to replace outdated mobile images with professionally composed and retouched assets.

 

With our help, we can increase your bookings by up to 24%.

Fun fact, you can also increase your earnings on Airbnb by 40% when adding professional photos to your listing AND the average property owner can increase their nightly rate by 26% when upgrading their photography. 

 

If that’s not incentive enough - you will have the combined talents of two creatives rather than just one! We’re currently supporting the Blue Mountains, Kawartha Lakes and the Muskoka cottage country - if this describes your property, we’d love to hear from you.

We photograph homes and Airbnb’s of all shapes, sizes and styles. In cooperation with home staging, the images we craft will bring a fresh, crisp and high quality polish to your space while increasing the multi-media marketing ability across social blogs and various real estate apps.

We’ve mastered the subtle art of supplemental lighting, colour matching and exposure blending and as such, we will work with you to understand; (1) what makes your property unique, (2) your brand aesthetic and (3) improve the saleability of your property through print and web ready imagery.

Our mission is to help make you money - it’s really that simple.
