WE ARE Charlie and Michael Barnett!
We are husband and wife wedding photographers based in Ottawa, but available to travel worldwide to photograph weddings of adventurous couples who share our love for travel. We are animal lovers and have a tiny puppy with the biggest heart and personality and a rescue cat who cannot hunt to save her life. We absolutely love when our couples include their dog in their wedding or engagement session. We also have a baby boy named Landon.
We love to capture the emotions of our couples in a romantic way and make our couples' photography experience fun and relaxed. Our couples say that we make them feel comfortable and at eased in front of our camera, and we think that it is why we are able to capture genuine emotions between our bride and grooms.
"WOW!!!!! STUNNING!!! We are in love with our wedding images. Charlie captured so many amazing moments. Her work is amazing and we can’t help but smile from ear to ear, get a little giddy and just have our breaths taken away. Our family and friends couldn’t stop commenting on how amazing Charlie was on our wedding day as she was so relaxed and easy going and made everyone feel at ease."
“We had an amazing time :) The whole way home we talked about how fun it was and how amazing you were. It was such a perfect night. I'm blown away with the photos, you got them edited so fast! We are so blessed to have had the chance to meet you. You are a gem :) We love love love the photos! We will certainly be highly recommending you to everyone we know!”
"Thank you so much for capturing our day in such a way that we are able to relive it over and over again! We absolutely LOVE all our photos and are constantly looking back at them with joy and fondness. You have a way of capturing the emotion in the moment and the photos came out better than we could have ever imagined!"
"Our photos are absolutely phenomenal! We couldn't have dreamed for better!!!! We think your work is so incredibly gorgeous. We are not ones for being in front of the camera (we both had so much anxiety about it), but you made us feel so relaxed. It was actually a lot of fun! The engagement shoot was definitely worth it. We can't wait to work with you again soon!"
“We are IN LOVE with the photos! Seriously, I feel like a princess and Owen can’t stop looking at them! I especially love how timeless the photos look and how comfortable you made us feel. I also can’t imagine how much time and work went into these. Thank you again, I will be sharing these for ever!”
“We are beyond ecstatic about how our pictures have turned out!! We had such an amazing time during the shoot. With this being both of our first time doing a photo shoot like this, you made us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (well, me more than Kory…he was a natural!) I would 1000% recommend your services to anyone looking! We cannot thank you enough for the incredible job you have done!”
"Charlie is an amazing photographer! Her style is light, romantic, and timeless which is exactly what I wanted. She helped my fiancé and I feel comfortable and have fun while taking photos. I love both our engagement and wedding photos and I'm so glad we'll have them to look back on for many years. I would definitely recommend The Barnett Company!"
"Charlie was so great to work with! She shot our engagement photos and her husband Michael joined her in capturing our best moments on our wedding day!
We absolutely loved how all of our photos turned out, if you like soft, romantic, yet natural photos you will absolutely love working with this power couple!"
