Hello I'm Charlie! My husband Michael and I are wedding and engagement photographers based in Ottawa, Canada, traveling worldwide.
Although we love pretty weddings, we believe in great marriages. We believe in true love that lasts a lifetime and marriages that go the distance.
After reading Make it Happen by Lara Casey in the fall, I wanted more of my 2018 goals. I wanted to explore what a life lived on purpose would look like and if I could define what these goals could look like for me. I loved the book and I recommend it to anyone. Lara’s […]
Gabrielle and David’s engagement at Experimental Farm in Ottawa was my favourite to date! It was a PERFECT day. The temperature was lovely, the light was amazing and it was so nice spending the evening with two great friends. I met David a few years ago and was then introduced to Gaby over dinner with friends. […]
The blog and website are finally fully transitioned to the Barnett Company! Yay! This transition had been long time coming. Michel and I have been talking about it for about a year, brain storming a new name for our new company and talking about website design and technical details. It was pretty hard coming out […]
Christina and Dominic had a Mackenzie King Estate engagement session because the ruins would work nicely with their Harry Potter themed wedding. We were so lucky to get gorgeous and warm fall weather for their engagement session. Christina and Dominic met in University when they were both in sorority and fraternity. They wanted to have some […]
Courtney and Matthew’s fall Cumberland Heritage Museum wedding was so much fun! Courtney spent the day laughing and having the time of her life. Courtney’s engagement ring was the prettiest engagement ring I have ever seen. Her engagement ring had been designed by Matthew and was a large oval diamond rose gold ring with many […]
This historic Billings Estate wedding was a beautiful celebration. Jenna and Mark were meant for each other. After meeting in Ottawa, they realized that both of their family had cottages close to each other at the Sand Banks. They now spend all their free time at the cottage with their dog Bria (who also came […]
I had the best time at Amie and Bill’s Boldt Castle engagement session. In addition the be the most amazing setting for an engagement session, the journey to the Island was so fun! There really something to be said about packing your passport mid-week for a mini road trip to the US and ferry ride […]
Kathryn and Stephen got married at Next in Stittsville on Canada day. I don’t know if you remember Canada day, but chances are you do, as it was Canada 150 celebrations. It rained SO much all day, and although there were pockets of sun, we they were during the ceremony and reception and were not […]
I met John and Trina in the lobby of the Chateau Laurier to photograph their wedding elopement in Major Hill Park. It was an intimate affair with only their children and their spouses as witnesses. The weather had been incertain all day, but we were really fortunate that the rain cloud mouved away and the […]
I met this sweet family in their home in Brockville for a newborn lifestyle session in their grey and pink nursery. Mackenzie was a great baby to photograph. It was nice to see Chelsea and Charlie again. I first met them at Charlie’s brother’s wedding I was photographing last summer in Brockville. I was really happy to […]
