Ottawa - Nepean Professional Photographer


Our Ottawa/Nepean Portrait Photo Studio

Photographing couples of any age is a favourite of mine. We have digital and traditional photo packages available. Our Ottawa photo studio is located in the Nepean area, a short drive from downtown Ottawa, Kanata, Orleans, Stittsville, Richmond and an even shorter drive from Barrhaven or Manotick.

We can offer you professional-looking portraits, formally posed or relaxed casual-looking photos, nice natural smiles, slimming poses, advice on the best clothes to wear, and of course a little retouching. We have been photographing clients not just in Ottawa Ontario but also Nepean, Kanata, Orleans, Richmond, and Manotick since 1980.

Retouching is Included free on all Finished Photos (Not proofs). Typically we include some portrait retouching to whiten teeth, soften lines and wrinkles, remove blemishes and stray hair. All of our finished images have been tweaked in Photoshop. Our goal is to make you look great but not overdo the retouching, we want you to look like you are having a great day without looking retouched. But of course the choice is always yours how far we go so if you have any special concerns just let us know. 

Free Parking and Client Comfort

We have free parking just a couple of feet from our front door. We have a washroom/change room at your disposal. Plus we have a bottle of the coolest, most delicious bottled water available anywhere, just for you. If I forget to offer you one, please remind me. 

By Appointment Only

Yes we only work by appointment, most clients just use our online calendar. Find a date and time that works for you and book yourself in. Our online calendar never sleeps or gets a day off so it is always available to you. Yes, you can also phone or email for an appointment. 

One of the common threads in our Verified Client Reviews is that we make people feel comfortable and relaxed, and yes they love the photos too. Spencer Studio has been an Ottawa photographer since 1980 and has won many awards and recognitions.
