a little About us…

Great to Meet You

Capturing Life’s Moments

I specialize in editorial style wedding, event and lifestyle people photography. My goal at every session is to capture moments in time, forever telling the stories of your life’s milestones. I then translate those memories into visual pieces that can be passed down for generations to come as wall art, coffee table story books, keepsake cards to share with family and friends.  

Currently I'm booking for the 2019 | 2020 wedding season, and are available in Ottawa, the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Gatineau, Quebec, Canada and International destinations. I'm a lover of boutique weddings so never hesitate asking for a quote, there is never an event that doesn’t spark my interest.

One adventure at a time…

One of our Favourite

places to wander {nothing beats the ocean}

Annemarie Grudën

I have worked as a professional photographer across Canada since 1990. Professionally trained and critically acclaimed, I’m currently based in the Ottawa Gatineau region of Canada, creatively speaking locations are limitless globally and there isn’t a border I wouldn’t cross for a session.

One of the first questions I am generally asked once people discover I am a photographer is… What do you photograph – families, weddings? My general response is yes, but if you were to classify subject matter I would have to say, I photograph ‘People’ whether it’s the CEO of a major corporation, the first moments of life with a newborn, capturing those unforgettable moments at a wedding. I love working with people and capturing the essence of life within each of my subjects.  

FUN FACTS about me:
~ Grudën originates from Sweden and apparently there are only 69 of us in Canada.
~ Born & raised in the West Kootenays of BC, My Dad had me skiing by the age of 3!!!
~ Favourite liquids that bring joy to my day; Americano’s,  Red wine, and H2O {NOT necessarily in that order}
~ I have a degree in Fine ART, photography with a minor in printmaking.
~ I LOVE design, lettering, and all things creative…
~ LIFE would not be complete without Movies, Music AND my crazy obsession with Nutrition & Strength training.
~ I have AMAZING girlfriends who keep me sane and grounded. 

I can honestly say I’m truly THANKFUL that I get to exercise my artistic needs for a living.  Photography has allowed me to overlap my passions for life: working with new and interesting people daily, travel, create art, and raise my family.  Send a note if you would like to connect and create some images with me!!
