Blair Gable

As 2012 came to a close, I was lucky enough to be listed among some of Canada’s top wedding photographers with the Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada. I placed 9th overall on a list of 40 great wedding shooters from across Canada. Placement on the list was determined by the number of images that win awards in the organizations contests throughout the year. Here are the ones that pulled in the good for me:

2013 is already off to a great start and hopefully I can continue to create great images for great clients!


Nicole and Jon met while playing on an Ottawa Sport and Social Club (OSSC) softball team a few years ago, so it seemed appropriate to take these two baseball enthusiasts to an Ottawa Fat Cats game earlier this summer. Batter up!

Michelinne and Darren grabbed some colonnade pizza, champaign, before we hit the beach for their sunset engagement portrait shoot on Petrie Island in Ottawa. I was the only one drinking from the bottle and rolling in the sand.

I shot a two-part engagement portrait session with Isha and Sam last week. The first part was an Indian-inspired shoot at the Shore Club in the Ottawa Westin and the second was a more causal shoot on the patio at Restaurant 18 in the Byward Market. Many cocktails were consumed by all. Enjoy!

This is real folks – no photoshop trickery here. This sunset engagement session was the result of months of pre-conceptualization and manic preparedness. I have wanted to photograph this epic tree for about six years and have been waiting for the right inspiration. When my epiphony finally came a few months ago, I email Jessey and simply asked, “Do you guys like trees?” In fact, they love trees! We even rescheduled this shoot a few times because I didn’t feel that conditions were perfect. I spent the evening rolling around in the dirt and crawling through a field to get the right perspective, but it was all worth it. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding later this year!
