WE ARE Charlie and Michael Barnett!

Hello friend! 

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 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.

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!
