Style Domination x AMBphoto Photoshoot

Meet Anne-Marie Bouchard. A friend of mine for years, she is an extremely talented photographer. To describe her as kind, funny and engaging is an overwhelming understatement.

I remember the first time I met her, I was thoroughly impressed by this young lady who travels the world shooting beautiful weddings.  Her lifestyle photography focusing on warm pictures of children and families is stellar.

The day I finally got around to checking out her photography blog was the day I realized that wedding photography truly is an art. I was floored by her original and unique pictures that conveyed the happiness, joy and celebration of happy couples. She truly is not your average wedding photographer with no cheesy shots in her portfolio at all. Anne-Marie’s photography is warm and dreamy, and she captures her subjects in such interesting angles and light. Another sign of her expertise is that she can take beautiful pictures in local areas, but she does so in such a way that it’s fresh and new. Anne-Marie frames her shots so well that you can rarely tell that she’s shooting in popular photography locales in Ottawa. Well done.

Here is a little sampling of her work:

We chose a chilly, fall day to head to Westboro Beach here in Ottawa. The location was perfect – the sandy beach dotted with weathered trees, driftwood and reeds swaying in the wind set the perfect backdrop.

Anne-Marie chose to use film for our photoshoot, thus resulting in the lovely, dreamy glow of these photos. Sigh – just love it.

I hope you enjoy these shots as much as I do – I’m still floored at how beautifully this photoshoot turned out.

Please be sure to check out Anne-Marie’s work by visiting her website at www.ambphoto.com, on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ambphoto), Twitter (www.twitter.com/ambphoto), and Instagram (www.instagram.com/annephoto).

      Thank you so much, Kathleen! We had so much fun! It was bitterly cold and windy that day, and we thought we’d freeze to death…but wow. The hypothermia was worth it!

    I’ve worked with many photographers and can definitely say that Anne-Marie is true veteran in her line of work; her images are simply stunning beyond words! Love the essence of creativity, perfect angles and amazing lighting she utilizes to capture her masterpieces. AND of course you look incredible Dominque; your outfit is perfect for the overall mood and chilly scenary. Ms. Model in the making? 😉

    These are truly beautiful pictures which you will treasure for years to come. I immediately noticed your beautiful! sweater too. Love it!

      Thank you so much, Patti! That was exactly what I was thinking. When I’m old and grizzly, I will have these gorgeous pics to look back on! And that sweater is from J.Crew from a few years ago. ;o)

    I love these! You’re right, she is such a dreamy photographer. Also, one of those wedding dresses totally looks like mine. 🙂

      Really?? Which one? The yellow one? Thanks so much, Dannie! How are you doing? xo

        I’m keeping that a surprise until wedding day!
        Doing well. Hoping to get back into the swing of blogging. Things got kinda rough.

    Dreamy is the perfect adjective. I love wedding photography like this — and your photo shoot is beautiful, too (as always). I think you gave her an easy subject. 😉

    Back for a little binge reading tonight. Have a beatific day! 🙂

      Haha! Thank you so much, Ashley! I love wedding photography too – like I’m obsessed with it. LOL! I have no idea why…maybe it’s the genuine happiness conveyed by the couples, or the dreamy wedding gowns…I just love it!

    • December 9, 2015 / 12:53 pm

      Haha – thanks! It’s like a nice, warm blanket. When J.Crew released it, I ran to the store to buy it immediately.

      • December 10, 2015 / 12:03 am

        I wish there was J.Crew was here in Dubai! 🙁

        • December 10, 2015 / 10:41 am

          J.Crew is lovely…but its quality has suffered a bit. Apparently, they are working on it. They ship internationally! ;o)

  10. December 10, 2015 / 11:23 pm

    You look GORGEOUS! Great shots and a great post!

  11. December 11, 2015 / 12:52 pm

    You’re right, Anne-Marie is very talented! The photos are gorgeous, and I adore your cardi!
