Ottawa Wedding Photographer



  • I've created this portfolio to help you decide whether I'm the best wedding photographer in Ottawa for you.   

  • Throughout the past decade, I have photographed all kinds of wonderful weddings – including a few special moments during my own wedding day in 2015!

  • So, you can count on me to photograph your major life moments with the same degree of passion and energy as I did for myself, and together we will absolutely enjoy creating all the memorable images you want!

Who photographed his own wedding day

Featured here is a picture of me photographing my amazing wife - Stéphanie - on our wedding day!    

As I created these pictures, it felt wonderful knowing that I could give my soulmate an enduring gift of photography — made by me — with the help of a tripod :).

A seasoned photographer

Ready, willing and able to work with any kind of weather — rain or shine, day or night.

  • I have photographed wedding ceremonies in every season, and I love working with mother nature anytime of the year.   
  • If you're planning a winter wedding in Ottawa, then be sure to ask me about my grandma inspired tips and tricks to keep us warm and laughing out loud during our outdoor portraits.

A thoughtful wedding photographer

With a discerning eye for seeing both the big picture and details wrapped in a moment

  • I love being a wedding photographer, and photographing moments that shine with "in-to-me-see!"  

  • Whether it be through a kiss, an embrace, a dance, a dip, a joke, a poke, or just picking up your bride so that she doesn't have to walk through a puddle - there's no shortage of lovely moments to photograph during a wedding!

  • Altogether, my photography style includes a nice blend of candid, composed and artistic images; working side-by-side with your ideas and offering plenty of my own to support you and exercise my creative license. I tend to prefer colour photographs a bit more than black-and-white, yet I'm comfortable with creating either. 

  • If you would prefer black and white tones, or sepia tones, then I can accommodate you.

  • I tend to prefer a more natural look-and-feel, sometimes referred to as a photojournalistic approach, but I'm equally skillful in creating composite images and applying enhanced visual effects with Adobe Photoshop. 

  • If you would like to replicate a particular visual effect that you've seen, then let me know and we can try to accomplish it too!

  • I like using every focal range between 11 mm and 400 mm. These days my work is increasingly using a 35 mm perspective, but once I get to know you and your preferences better, I can easily tailor my approach to accommodate your preferred viewing aspect.

  • The Bottom line: My discerning eye will most certainly find and create meaningful memories for you, and if there's anything symbolic in the frame of a photo that you want me to equally profile, then I will integrate it as well - it's that simple!

The types of weddings I have photographed

Religious weddings

  • I have photographed religious ceremonies that were officiated by childhood pastors.
  • As a Roman Catholic, I am most familiar with the ceremonial traditions of Christian marriages, yet I would be honoured to photograph any other custom.

Civil weddings

  • I have photographed civil marriages at Ottawa City Hall that were officiated by justices of the peace.

Countryside weddings

  • I have photographed countryside weddings, where the first kiss literally went "off with a bang" - a gun shot bang!

Backyard weddings

  • I have photographed backyard weddings, and unique cultural practices where one couple literally "tied the knot" with a Scottish hand-fasting, and another used her garden to create the flower arrangements!

Cottage weddings

  • I have photographed cottage weddings, where the bride and groom celebrated an intimate ceremony with friends and family by the water.

City park weddings

  • I have photographed weddings in city parks, where the bride did it her way by arriving on a bike and leaving on a tandem bike with her husband at the helm.

LGBT friendly wedding photographer

I genuinely respect everyone. Although I have yet to photograph an LGTB wedding, I would be honoured to do so. In the past, I have photographed other LGBT events in Ottawa, such as the Ottawa Gay Men's Chorus 25th Anniversary.

Fully Insured

As a professional photographer, I carry business insurance that is fully underwritten by Desjardins.   Did you know: Most wedding venues require that photographers carry business insurance to work on their private property. No worries for me or you, however, as I’m fully covered and ready to work anywhere.


A contract to protect our mutual interests

As a professional photographer, I use a wedding contract based on common, easy-to-read language that documents our mutual understandings on the goods and services to be rendered for a fee.   Bottom line: You can trust me to perform my absolute best for you because that’s just how me and my camera click, and I'm proud to put that in writing!

Quality control

Results matter, and I greatly value quality control processes in my workflow to produce both expected and consistent outcomes. The calibrated camera equipment that I'll be using to photograph your wedding, and the licensed software that I use behind-the-scenes, is top-of-the-line and professional grade quality for producing picture-perfect moments!

Two quality control tools used in Jeffrey Meyer's photography

Quick turnaround service

My personal delivery service standard is to have all our pictures fully packaged and ready for you within 14 days of your wedding date (or sooner if humanly possible).
