• WELCOME TO JOHN CHARTRAND PHOTOGRAPHY

    The energy, the buzz, the vibe, the love, the party, the new step in life… It’s these things and more that keep me coming back! My approach is dynamic; blending modern, candid and traditional styles to capture your day as it unfolds. I’m eager to experiment with your vision and add my artistic flair to create the perfect shot. I am confident that you’ll have the photographs you’ve always wanted. I love laughing and have fun throughout the whole day. This creates a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere so you’re at ease and confident that you are going to get the best.

Ain’t no party like pre-wedding partying! Tons of eats, a live band, drinks for all. It all started early and didn’t finish for another 15 hours or so. Victoria is as cool as they come. After 2 mishaps that would ‘bridezilla’ the calmest and she took it all in stride, unbelievable! haha

We had an stunning day with Victoria, Graham and their families. The ceremony was gorgeous and the reception venue was well-decorated, the food offerings were amazing and the DJ really kept things rolling all night!.

Congratulations Victoria and Graham!

Thanks for having me along for the day, and enjoy these first few images!

I’m entering my 6th year of participation into a Movember campaign…$6341 dollars raised over the previous 5 years, hooray me! These funds have come from all different people and every year I make a different push, angle, twist on “fundraising”. I’ve made moustache cookies, cupcakes, prepared a limited-seating gourmet lunch and even let the finals donors decide how i should shave some of my Mo away.

This year, and for the first time, I’m offering photo sessions in exchange for donations to my Movember campaign…click HERE to donate now!

Unlike so many ‘generous offers’ I’m not “donating profits” or “50% of ALL proceeds” going to the cause.

No No No!

I am working IN EXCHANGE for your contribution of ($100 or more). 100% of the money you donate goes directly to Movember. I will collect no money, Russell Oliver will NOT be on site to give you money for your gold gold gold so leave Nana’s pearls at home!

So, what WILL I do? I will photograph you or your family or your pet or pet rock for roughly 30 minutes and email you a link with high resolution, edited images…around 10-15 if I had to venture a decent estimation.

WHEN are these shenanigans taking place?!? October 8th and 22nd (if needed)…if and absolutely IF these dates do not work, we can sort out rain dates as needed.

WHERE is the #MOphotosesh going down? I love the light and the backdrop provided by the old prison on York Rd in Guelph. Here’s the dealio…I don’t get paid, I don’t want to drive Hell’s half acre over 2 weekends! Times TBD, but you can count on mornings and early evening appointment times…mid day light is for suckers! Photogs, you know what I’m talkin ’bout!

In all honesty, I’m drafting a schedule now, and have some spots already taken so donate now and let’s get the #Mophotosesh underway!

 

Your #MoBro,

Jordan and Jake are country through and through! I met them at “Gramma’s house”. She was baking cupcakes, of course!

 

We walked through soy beans, wheat and corn ALL in one late afternoon and captured some really great moments. The Massey, the Chesapeake Bay boys lingering around and the horses in the pasture, there was something amazing in every direction. I’m really looking forward to their big day next June! Please enjoy a few of my favourite images from our session!

There’s nothing quite like a walk downtown Guelph to really capture some fun moments! We met up outside Red Brick Cafe on beautiful Douglas Street and sauntered down to Goldie Mill. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening despite forecasts predicting otherwise. Here are a few of my favourite images from our session.

Ronnie and her girls are a busy lot. They even brought a chauffeur along (Grandma) to get the eldest to work on time. We walked around the Old York Rd Prison, which is now a natural conservation area with gorgeous open spaces and old brick and stone work gating it in.

Here are some of my favourite images from this session!
