The Krusty Takeover Project During this latest lockdown photographers are only allowed to do commercial projects (headshots, product and commercial real estate for me). So I'm offering Front Porch Headshot sessions, commercial real estate photography, taking online courses and going for walks to make pictures and honing my skills both in-camera and using photoshop on personal projects like this one:

The Krusty Takeover Project

I am creating a world of buildings where Krusty the Clown is everywhere I go.
Right now the world needs more Krusty.

Krusty was not harmed in the making of these pictures - in fact, he happily posed (he only has one pose) inside my product photography station.

Night time Photography and the Milky Way Ugh! Light pollution is all around.

If you live in the city, you see few stars.

If you live in the country you see them but the Milky Way can be tricky to find or, and I think this is more likely, you just take the stars for granted.

Many people have written about how to do Astro Photography right and I've read them all. Advice for equipment, settings and advice for finding the Milky Way (which we are actually in, so just look out your window, anywhere, and you'll see it) and the best times. And then, you find your spot and you're all set and it's cloudy and, big one here, the sky is not as dark as you thought. Light Pollution.

There are certain times of the year and specific days (nights) of the year when you can find that massive cluster of stars. The view of the universe that can make you feel both insignificant and like the only person in that moment.

I have photographed night portraits of couples for years - mostly in the city and mostly focused on the couple within their immediate environment. Here is one of my favourites of Nikki and Tom. 

Sparks Street Ottawa WeddingSparks Street Ottawa Wedding

But I haven't really made time to go Milky Way Hunting. Sure I've seen all kinds of posts of glorious Milky Way pictures but haven't delved into it... until now. 

Jack and I had gone into Ottawa to make pictures of the city at night but then, coming home late we decided to pull over to see what we could see and to experiment. Here are a few examples from that night.

Milky Way-6Milky Way-6 Milky Way-13Milky Way-13

I learned a few things from that experience, here are some takeaways

1. Focus manually on the screen in live view (feels a bit like being back in a darkroom) when you are in the dark, everything is dark and, even though everything I read promotes using live view I have always been a "through the viewfinder" kind of photographer. Lesson learned.

2. Don't take pictures on the side of a very busy road (we were safely away from traffic but hey you never know with people driving home at 1 a.m. plus you lose a lot of night vision every time a car goes by).

3. Experiment on the fly - get it right and then play.

And here are pictures from last night (somewhere around Kemptville). There was still light pollution (exacerbated by it being a low hanging cloudy night) but I have learned more for an engagement shoot I will be doing next weekend and will experiment with them too!

Sharpening the Saw in Vegas (an obsession with photographing people better every day) 7BB45D94-AF97-4618-B97D-2D5480A6C7CD_1_105_c7BB45D94-AF97-4618-B97D-2D5480A6C7CD_1_105_c

First, I ask you to indulge me as I share some of my personal history...

(TL;DR I am obsessed with photographing people and with learning how to be better every day, now you can skip down and look at pictures)

I always wanted to be a photographer and I didn't know why. I think I was eight when I uncovered my fathers' abandoned old Yashica-Mat twin-lens reflex camera in the glove box of our broken-down station wagon. I remember it like it was yesterday; trying to figure out how all of the mechanics of this complex box worked and pretending to take pictures all around the town of Carp. When I was twelve I was cleaning the newspaper press room when my sister Alison asked me if I wanted to develop her film and print her pictures for the next edition of the Nepean Clarion - I did and so now I had another job on top of cleaning the press room and layout rooms. When I turned 13 they gave me a 35mm camera, a Soligor, and I started to take pictures at all of the local events that no one else wanted to go to and I went along as an assistant at other events too.

Then I went to high school and immediately joined the yearbook. Then the school newspaper. Best part of high school: I had a key to the high school darkroom and skipped classes to use it. I even built a darkroom in my bedroom while working at two newspapers in darkrooms every weekend. I was obsessed. I even photographed a few weddings at that time - and realized that taking pictures for other people is a hell of a way to put pressure on yourself and others.

Here I am in a selfie during high school.


When I finished high school, I was finished with photography. Took a year off. Got married to the love of my life and decided to study creative advertising at Algonquin College (though they called it "Advertising Creative" back then) we even did a course in photography but then didn't pick up a camera again until years later when we were taking pictures of Santa at Hazeldean Mall.

My Niece, Erin, was getting married and asked me to photograph her wedding in Guelph. I did and I also MC'd. And the obsession returned. The following year I photographed four weddings. The year after that I bought all kinds of camera equipment - Hasselblads and Metz - and suddenly was shooting 40 weddings a year. Flash forward to today and I have been the primary photographer at over 500 weddings but the desire to improve with every wedding and every outing is still there. Though the darkroom has been replaced with Lightroom and Photoshop I am even more obsessed with editing my own pictures after each wedding.

And part of the obsession that has stuck with me was the desire to be among other people just as obsessed as I am with photographing people - for years I had wanted to attend WPPI in Las Vegas (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) and 2020 was going to be the year. With prior planning, I had set myself up to take 18 courses in four days and have time to see the sights with my good friend (and equally obsessed wedding photographer/videographer) Bryan Jones.

Here are some highlights from this educational trip to Vegas!

Byward Market for Wedding and Engagement Photographs The Byward Market and Majors Hill Park 

Wedding and Engagement Photography Locations in Downtown Ottawa

With its new world charm, modern-day conveniences and great backdrops the Byward Market has always been one of my favourite locations to meet couples to make both wedding and engagement photographs.

This google map (walking tour) starts at Clarendon Lane, home of Mamma Grazi's and the Courtyard Restaurant. goes to the Ottawa Sign, pass by 18 and Oh So Good and through the Jeanne D'Arc Court to Clarence Street where you'll find the Senate Tavern and the Heart & Crown. Continuing over to William Street you will go to a view of Beavertails and the Byward Market Building at the corner of George and William. From here I like to make pictures along George Street on the way to Majors Hill Park for great views of the Peace Tower and the Chateau Laurier. Link to walking Map

2020 took the wind out of my sails: how I discovered what I have 2020 was going to be a great year.

But then something happened that took the wind out of my (and your?) sails

...but first, here is a video made at Container Park in Las Vegas last February, a month and a moment that for me represents the "Before Times".


On the wedding side of things, a lot of couples (all) had to postpone or change their 2020 wedding plans. I've been fortunate that all of my couples are either rescheduling or holding intimate ceremonies with receptions at a later date. And, to alleviate a lot of stress, I am able to photograph both events for them.

But there is more to my response to this pandemic than just waiting it out. I've found what I am thankful for and see a solid path forward by looking at the past first, learning and adjusting in the present while preparing for the new realities of tomorrow.

The Before Times

I came off of a great Christmas season. I had caring people working in teams photographing Santa at Hazeldean Mall and Mean Green Santa at Billings Bridge. But it wasn't just photography, we were responsible for the system and for each other working as a team at both locations to create experiences that were above expectations. 

The team deserves so much credit - so I will shout out to them (in no particular order) Ted, Frank, Christine, Kathy, Chrissy, Claire, Alain, Bob, Steven, Lisa, Cory, Emma, Kiera, Ionna, Rebecca and Tara.

Santa sleepSanta sleep

The main challenge was people knowingly (and in some cases unknowingly) getting into line ups that would have them waiting for three hours. That's the problem with becoming popular for doing things uniquely the right way - you go a little bit viral and BOOM, you’ve got line ups. Line ups that start early and end late. If your system fails, you go viral in the wrong way, and if it works you win. Our system WORKED. I gotta tell you when you get stopped at Costco by a stranger thanking you for taking their pictures with the "Grinch" you realize the impact you have on the lives of people around you - in spite of the long wait times. 

After such a busy season followed by “nothing” the true understanding that photographs are time machines really sinks in. 

As an offshoot from all of this I was truly surprised by one thing:
it feels great to write paycheques and to pay the rent.


And there is the time I got to photograph these children at Sensory/Silent Santa Sunday, they had me crying (tears of happiness) because they were having so much fun.

Capital Wedding Show
Looking to fill in some dates for weddings in 2020, and getting a jump on 2021, I took the leap and booked a booth at the Capital Wedding Show. It was nice meeting all of the couples with my volunteers (former Brides and a good friend) to help me out. All was good and I handed out a tonne of flyers and then the waiting for calls could start, but in the meantime, it was time to sharpen the saw in two different ways. 

Experimenting with Reservations
We set up Family sessions at Hazeldean Mall on the Sunday of Family Weekend. 

Using online booking software we sold out of 10-minute family sessions within 2 hours of posting - though some people had to cancel due to illness it was so popular that we scheduled more dates in March. This knowledge will really come in handy for Safe Social Distancing Santa photography at Hazeldean and Billings Bridge this Christmas season.

Renewed learning 

There is an annual conference for wedding and portrait photographers (it’s called WPPI). Held in Las Vegas every year I've long held onto the dream of going to WPPI and 2020 was going to be the year. Taking advantage of early booking discounts for flight, hotels and attendance fees I stayed at the Luxor, took in 18 seminar sessions and 4 intensive learning sessions, met some great photographers, had my first In N Out meal, met up with my good friend Bryan Jones and even went to "The Happy Place".

Did you know that a Double Double means something different at In N Out? I didn't. But now I like both.

A Pandemic Is Coming
When I came back from Vegas there was talk of a Pandemic and it could be a problem. No one knew how much, or how little, of a problem it would be.


One Last Wedding in "Before Times"
Before everything shut down I did get to photograph Christine and Alex's wedding in early March at the Canadian Golf & Country Club.

And then everything was shut down.

In April we were all set to make pictures with the Easter Bunny at both Hazeldean Mall and Billings Bridge. It was going to be great. Didn't happen. (I even bought a new Bunny Costume which, ironically, arrived from Wuhan Province a week before we were supposed to start).

Time to review and reflect and sharpen the saw some more
The internet is a glorious thing. I've finished all of the Nikon School online courses, completed a Coursera course on Business Modeling and a course on Content Marketing offered up by Hubspot. There are more courses on the near horizon.

Santa never sleeps
Key Santa staff and I had a facetime meeting two weeks ago and discussed the new reality - how to keep families and staff safe while making Santa visits and portraits even better. I was able to bring this to a rough plan form in discussions with shopping centre administration and am working on logistics and protocols to truly wow families this November and December.

Architectural Photography
I've also been getting out to make more pictures - practicing architectural photography (as well as fine art, street and headshots - everywhere I turn there is something else to photograph). There is beauty in buildings and landscapes and I love to get out for moments of zen. Architectural Photography on Instagram.


Old Weddings are New Again
I went as far back as 2010 in reviewing some past weddings, then did some re-edits and posted a selection to Instagram.

And had more time with immediate family making pictures on abandoned railway tracks in Smiths Falls


and recording an audition for University


Through it all I've discovered that talents, skills, experience, a desire to create and empathy are quite a recipe for preparing for the future.

I've been preparing for what I'll get to do again using what I've learned during the last five months (and my entire life). The Pandemic may not be over, not yet and not by a long shot, and I know there is so much more to do and learn. I have always known that the winds will change from ideal to nothing to a gut-splitting 180-degree turn but the best way to be of service is to adjust my sails and hold on tight leaning in to share the gifts that I've been given and have worked for in helping others to uncover their own gifts.


Here are some of the other pictures I made during the Pandemic Shut-Down

Night Portraits by Frank Fenn Wedding Night Portraits by Frank Fenn
Ottawa, Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec and available for southern and Canadian destinations

Sometimes some of the best nighttime portraits can be made in publicly accessed closed places like Pong's Poutine on the Carp Road. We made this portrait of Tessa and Lee after their beautiful June wedding at the Canadian Golf & Country Club. Click to see more of their wedding. Parliament Hill Night Portrait wedding Frank FennParliament Hill Night Portrait wedding Frank Fenn
It wouldn't be Ottawa without pictures at Parliament Hill - Nikki and Tom were ready willing and able to make the night portraits at this time because they saw what we did with their friends, Melissa and Rick, one year earlier. Yes, this picture was made at 2:20 a.m. and yes, it has been edited for lighting and balance and to remove people staying warm by the fire (as well as other imposing structures). Click to see their entire wedding day.

Ottawa Downtown Wedding PortraitOttawa Downtown Wedding Portrait
Speaking of Melissa and Rick!
Again, we made this portrait after 2 a.m. but this one was made in the pouring rain under the Mackenzie King Bridge. Melissa and Rick's wedding reception was held at the Westin Hotel and we stayed till the lights came and had the opportunity to go out with them. Click to see entire wedding. Carp Fair Wedding Portrait at nightCarp Fair Wedding Portrait at night
Sometimes you get lucky and there is a fair going on. We were able to make this picture at the Carp Fair (in, guess where!) at 1 in the morning. Empty fairgrounds make for an interesting backdrop to couples' portraits and security gave us 20 minutes to work with, and that is all we needed.
Peace Tower Wedding PortraitPeace Tower Wedding Portrait
More Peace Tower!
In the summer months tourism in Ottawa is heavy, especially when the light show is on. Katiesue and Scott had an early daytime wedding and afternoon reception - giving us the chance to meet up with them at their hotel in downtown Ottawa and walk around from 7 till 9 p.m. Wherever there are tourists there are opportunities to edit them out, and boy did I have to go to town on people removal for this one, but the results are a place where they can go back and reminisce with their children and maybe even great grandchildren.

Tracy Sean Ottawa wedding parking lotAAATracy Sean Ottawa wedding parking lotAAA
Sometimes a parking lot can be cool.
This portrait of Sean and Tracey was made after their reception as we went for a walk to their Hotel making pictures along the way. Urban art makes for a great background too - as you will see below - especially as they are in the same parking lot. Click to see their entire wedding day.

Sean Tracy Ottawa Wedding RCAF Officers Mess Gloucester StreetSean Tracy Ottawa Wedding RCAF Officers Mess Gloucester Street
Golf Courses too.
So, you have your reception at a golf course, nice during the day but not so sure about night? This portrait of Laila and Matthew was made on the first tee at the Royal Ottawa golf club in Aylmer, Quebec - and though we didn't venture any further we made a portrait that has a clear starry night.
Click to see their entire wedding day.

le Belvedere at night.
Beautiful during the day, gorgeous at night. Taking a break from their party, Mandy and Eric, posed for this night portrait under the chandelier. Some people were edited out of this picture but you wouldn't have known this if I hadn't told you.

Indoors at night at the Infinity Centre.
Tiffany and Cal's wedding was held in February, without opportunity to make pictures outdoors there were not any problems. This is one of those places where they have spot lights following the couple on their first dance - that and a fog machine ... which makes for challenges for flashes.
Riu Palace Jamaica WeddingRiu Palace Jamaica Wedding
Of course, when you have a destination wedding you have time to make night portraits like this one with Natalie and Haneef in Jamaica.
Sparks Street Ottawa WeddingSparks Street Ottawa Wedding
The Bank of Canada Building on Sparks Street is really cool at night with opportunities for different angles like this one with Nikki and Tom and the pillars out front.

This portrait was made at Saunders Farm during a super moon, Saunders no longer allow sparklers (which makes a lot of sense)

A   1334A 1334 Kingston WeddingKingston Wedding
Back alleys can be fun to photograph in, this one is on Princess Street in Kingston. NAC wedding OttawaNAC wedding Ottawa
The NAC has beautiful views of the city including this view of Shaw Centre.
This is the tunnel at the Marshes Golf Club - while the owners of the golf course were probably not pleased with the urban art it made for a bit of grit in this picture best seen in black & white. Ottawa Wedding PhotographyOttawa Wedding Photography
There is something about construction sites that just invite wedding pictures to be made. Strathmere Wedding in WinterStrathmere Wedding in Winter
Winter weddings are nothing but darkness after 5 p.m. - this one was made at Strathmere on an incredibly frigid December evening. Stonefields WeddingStonefields Wedding The wonderful setting at Stonefields lends itself to make night portraits.

A    2117A 2117

Staying in a hotel room with a view? After all is said and done you can pose in the window while I make pictures - loving the guy shoveling the snow underneath their room. It was a cold and snowy day - well worth frozen fingers.
Even making night portraits in the forest is amazing.

I love the controlled (seeming) chaos of makeup kits splayed all around, they make for interesting details.

While the weather appeared to be clearing up as we walked out onto the Delta Terrace it didn't stay that way - fortunately the staff came to the rescue and plan B was put into place when the wedding was moved indoors. But not before we had the chance to take some wet pictures.

Ottawa looks different at 2 a.m.

 Buildings and common pedestrians areas take on a new life. We also find unusual and unexpected locations to balance with the traditional spots.

Kerry's Prewedding Session at the Brookstreet Hotel A0A0

Kerry and Joshua's wedding was held at Evermore (close to Almonte) but they prepared for their wedding day at the Brookstreet. 


Kerry's Makeup Artist was Christiane Drouin , to say she did a fabulous usual would be unfair...there is nothing routine about the amazing results that Christiane presents for her clients.  A12aaA12aa

A17aA17a A7aA7a

Being at her suite early allowed us the time to take in all of the action, go between floors for the gifts between her and Joshua, and to get everyone comfortable with being photographed, It also gave us the breathing room to take multiple perspectives on the same scene.  A8aA8a

and to have some fun with Kerry (doing her best Diva impersonation). A13aA13a


Lacing up dresses does take time and it is always good to have more than one pair of hands (and a crochet hook) to keep everything tight.


I like to have several cameras available with different lenses and lighting options for each - to be ready for any reaction.  A18aA18a A19aA19a A20aA20a

It always amazes me how hair stylists can create intricate patterns out of straight (and sometimes overly curly hair that does not want to co-operate) while also knowing that a special bow, fascinator, piece of jewellery or veil will have to somehow fit in/on top of their creation. And on top of all of that making sure that their work does not fall out in the humidity or in the wind or when pulled on in the limo.


Emily Allwood from The Nook Salon in Stittsville created her masterpiece for Kerry (and it lasted past 1 am too).

Emily and Sebastian will be married at Strathmere in September so it was time for a second engagement session, this one at Mill of Kintail just outside Almonte, Ontario.  The beautifully preserved heritage area with stone buildings, stream and forest make for a beautiful setting in the summer.
