On the Lake

An Unexpected Location   As much as I enjoy working in Secret Cedars, our private garden, it’s often quite a thrill to work on location.  Going to a client’s home presents new challenges, with lighting, spacing and even available props, but it helps to keep me sharp, work with what’s around me.  A few weeks…

Outdoor Wedding

Had the pleasure of working a wedding at one of my favorite venues, Club Roma.  This one was a little different.  It marked the first time that the ceremony and reception would all take place outdoors.  The reception was set up under the pavilion and the ceremony proper took place at the end of a…

An Engagement to Remember

It all started with an email way back in May. A nice young man booked us for a portrait session with his girlfriend.  Over the course of a few emails, we settled on a location and date.  Once the details were handled, he added a little wrinkle to the event. Halfway through, he was going…

Eloping in Niagara?

Here’s the thing about weddings – every single one is different.  They are as diverse as the people involved.  Grand, simple, rustic, vintage, high key, ultra modern, absolutely no two are the same.   At Nerses Photo we’ve always prided ourselves on meeting the needs of our clients, whatever they are.  Got eight sets of…

Problem 1:  The Sun Just like people, prolonged exposure to the…

Ever Wonder what a 130 year old Photo Looks Like?

The best thing about photo restoration is the amazing history you hold in your hands. A gentleman came into Nerses Photo Studio recently with two photos, individual portraits of his great grandparents.  Not only were they intact, but they were still in the original frames.  An appraisal of the clothing and placed the images around…

Downtown Portrait

Call me biased, but I love Secret Cedars, the outdoor garden that we have behind Nerses Photo Studio.  However, I also relish the chance to go on location. The rails add a really cool visual…
