Who will be photographing my wedding?
Your wedding will be photographed by me, Sophie Fortier! I take pride in photographing as many weddings as possible, so unless you are booking with an affiliate photographer under my brand, your wedding will be covered by me. If you choose to have a second shooter in your package, I have a small, trusted list of them that I pick from based on availability on your wedding date. You can trust that these photographers have a similar style and have done their homework on your wedding!
What equipment do you use?
I have two full frame Nikon DSLRs and one backup camera for weddings. They are: D3, D700 and D7000. Lenses are chosen based on location but these are the ones I use most:
24-70mm I 70-200mm | 16mm | 50mm | 85mm
I have a flash and diffuser for indoor/reception shots and a reflector for various lighting scenarios. I also carry a detailed styling kit to capture your details as beautifully as I can for a few minutes on your big day.
Do you travel for weddings?
I do travel for weddings! Outside of Ottawa (30+ km) a travel fee is applied. I also service weddings throughout Canada with reasonable, negotiable travel rates! I have yet to work a destination wedding outside of the country but I am always open to new opportunities.
What if it rains on our wedding day?
Depending on your ceremony location, there are covered areas we can use for photographs. If your wedding is not in a location where this is permissible, I do research and look for a rain friendly location close by long before the wedding comes. Of course, I give you options and you get to choose your favourite. Don't forget, rain is a sign of good luck, so you can always embrace it! I love an adventurous couple. I have also been through any and every scenario you can think of, so don't sweat it! I've got your back.
