My husband and I cannot say enough about the outstanding work by Mitch Lenet Weddings. From the beginning, they were clear, organized and very professional and their final result captured our life long memories perfectly; we could not be happier! My husband and I were drawn to his photography, because of his outstanding portfolio, personal attention and original style. We trusted his judgement and ability to capture every moment of our wedding day with a classy, high-end feel; he exceeded our expectations. His price was very reasonable for the professional photographic quality that he delivered. Mitch was by far our favorite vendor and if you want to complete your perfect wedding, you will not be disappointed to have him as your photographer! He impressed us so much that I even decided to use him for all photography for my business. Thank you so much Mitch Lenet Weddings for capturing the love we share and our very special moments on our wedding day!

I have to say myself, my husband and whole family were blown away with Mitch Lenet and his team. The photos are unbelievable and I've gotten so much positive feedback from them, the way they are edited and the lighting is outstanding! The pictures are so crisp and clear. We got all of our photos back less than 3 WEEKS after our wedding! I can't say enough good things about Mitch Lenet and would HIGHLY recommend him and his team!

I stressed about hiring a wedding photographer, spending hours obsessing over portfolios, reviews and websites. My husband and I met with a few photographers but we both knew Mitch and Steve were it after our initial chat. Walking out, my husband turned to me and said, “We’re hiring them, right?” I knew I didn’t have to worry anymore about the photos. Steve and second-shooter Matt did a fantastic job of covering all aspects of our day – from our early morning get-ready session right down to the late-night dance floor, they were there capturing every moment. They were both so friendly, outgoing and genuinely fun to be around. Considering a couple spends almost as much time with their photographer(s) as with each other, personality is hugely important, and these two were awesome! Mitch had our images processed and ready for pick up about four weeks after our wedding – no small feat considering we received about 1,500 images in total! He had us over for a viewing of the highlights at his home studio and seeing those pictures on the big screen and how beautifully our day was captured, I was beyond delighted. Mitch’s editing skills are amazing! He can take a beautiful photograph and, with just a few minor tweaks, create an absolutely striking image. Throughout the entire process, Mitch and Steve were available to answer questions and discuss ideas. Everyone on the team was truly a dream to work with. HIGHLY recommend Mitch Lenet!

Mitch and Steve are absolute professionals, and this really shows through with how well they captured our wedding. The pictures turned out beautiful - we have so many to choose from - and it was so much fun to work with you two. We would definitely recommend Mitch to anyone. From the consultation to the engagement shoot through the wedding and final review, the whole process was a breeze. Thank you, your shots will make cherishing these memories so much easier. For any Brides and Grooms looking for a photographer to deliver an outstanding product while make taking pictures fun and easy, Mitch Lenet and his associates are the ones to go with. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. For my wife, as a Bride, Mitch made photography one thing she never had to worry about.

Amazingly talented photographers! Such great people and seem to have an eye to catch the beauty in each shot.
Meaghan + Jay
My wife and I have had the opportunity to work with Mitch for our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. From start to finish, Mitch was nothing but great to work with. We showed him a few ideas of photos that we wanted to do and he added his own twists to create exceptional photos that we didn't think were even possible. Mitch is easy going and pays attention to small details when it comes to getting the perfect shot. He also doesn't rush to make sure everything is just right. His portfolio speaks for itself showing his great knowledge of photography and his experience in different types of shoots. He has a wide range of surprises up his sleeve to produce all those unique dramatic shots for your special occasion and we highly recommend him as a wedding photographer in Ottawa.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, times that by 1,500 photos or so and I’m not sure that I'll have enough space to write our entire review!! Thank you so much for your time, efforts and spectacular work. We'd also especially like to thank you for your support along the way, which might I add has been quite a lengthy time considering our initial enquiry was in April 2014. I'll start by saying that Mitch and his team (Steve and Stephane) couldn’t have been more professional or friendly from the moment we made first contact. Having previously seen Mitch's work at a few wedding shows here in Ottawa we were so excited to see what he would do for us. He took so much stress out of the day and went above and beyond the “standard photographer requirements”, helping us plan timings and giving tips on how we could help to get the best shots. His vision was so creative and was exactly what we were looking for. When they day came, Mitch and his team did not disappoint. They got the most natural and beautiful photos and made everybody feel so at ease. It is clear to anybody who meets Mitch that he has a true passion for his work and this reflects in his genuine desire to give you the most amazing and unique memories that he can. If you are lucky enough to have Mitch as your photographer you will never look at another one the same, always thinking... "Mitch would have gotten down on the ground, climbed a tree or walked into the water to get a more amazing shot than that". We just couldn't be happier with the beautiful service you provided for us Mich. We will certainly recommend Mitch Lenet Wedding Photography to anyone we know. We wish you every success for the future. Your outstanding work clearly speaks for itself and we will certainly keep in touch. From the heart, Mr. & Mrs. Barroso-Gomez

Mitch was the photographer for our wedding last year. He was very professional and extremely patient with our 150+ guests. His artistic view, as presented in our Wedding Memories album, will be a cherished memory for life! The photos taken at the Experimental Farms in Ottawa were breath-taking, and the images he designed for us were magical. We recommend Mitch to anyone wanting lasting photographic memories of their special events!
Kim + Frank
We were really impressed with the pictures that we got, they are absolutely amazing. Both the boys and the girls had a lot of fun with the photo shoots while getting ready. Mitch and Steve are really good at using the surroundings for amazing pictures. We got a lot of comments from colleagues and friends saying that these are the best wedding pictures that they have ever seen. We got far more pictures than we expected.

It wasnt until I was planning our wedding did I realize just how picky I was. When looking for a photographer I wanted someone with a unique style. Someone with an eye for beauty and creativity. I looked at so many photographers and just couldn't commit to one. I met Mitch at the Bridal show. He was professional and his experience behind the camera drew me in. We instantly felt comfortable with him and we not only dreampt up our wedding but built a relationship. He truely captured our love story. He is by far at the top of the "class". I highly recommend him!! We will be flying him south for our vow renewal ceremony in 9 years!! (He doesn't know that yet 😉 )

We would highly recommend them to anyone.

Mitch was amazing. He really captured every moment, and the photographs were better than we could imagine. He went the extra mile just to get a pictures to come to life ( like buffing out an old car ). He's creative, very friendly and very good at his job. I highly recommend Mitch Lenet Wedding for anyone who wants amazing photos for your big day.

After getting married in Perth at the end of August, myself and my wife were expecting a lifetime of cherished memories from the experience and thanks to Mitch Lenet Wedding Photography we have literally hundreds of amazing photos to relive the biggest day of our lives. Mitch himself, as well as Ricardo were on hand for our wedding as part of the Perth Legion Wedding package, where Mitch's services were included and we couldn't have asked for a better experience from these guys. As a former reporter/photographer myself, their photos not only did an amazing job of telling the story of our day, but also were perfectly composed and so artfully done, that it looks like something off a gallery wall. They were both so calm and professional throughout the day capturing everyone's moments including our beautiful flower girls and ring bearers and providing countless memories photographically preserved. We can't say enough about the job these guys did and highly recommend their services either individually or as part of the Perth Legion Wedding package. We had an absolutely amazing wedding day, and thank you Mitch and Ricardo for preserving it for posterity.

When my wife and I were searching for photographers for our wedding, we were patiently and cautiously looking around and comparing work, prices, etc. because we believe that photography is the most important aesthetic aspect of the wedding process. Photographs last a lifetime and because of that, you must ensure that the person in-charge of this area of your wedding is professional, personable, succinct, organized, and helpful. To say the least, Mitch, Steve and the rest of Mitch's team did an amazing job for our wedding. They were organized, punctual, friendly, and just a blast to work with - the wedding party is still talking about their work that day. Besides all of the above, Mitch has done an excellent job following up with us after our special day... he supplied us with an amazing website gallery and USB stick with all of our photos for browsing-purposes. The photos look absolutely amazing and Mitch has a wide-array of photo albums and other products that can give us a constant reminder of how amazing the day was. Lastly, one thing that I will never forget about Mitch and his team on that day is the fact that whatever could go wrong with other vendors did... except for Mitch. My wife and I did not have to stress or worry about Mitch and whether or not things would go swimmingly in regards to our photography.

We used Mitch Lenet photography for our wedding and his partner Steve was our photographer. Steve was great. He had a since of humour which helped a lot. I think Mitch did the final treatments on the photos and they came out very well. No complaints here. Word to the wise: Do the first look (before the ceremony photos) as Mitch and Steve suggest. You'll get some great photos out of it and will reduce the time needed after the ceremony for photos.

Steve did an amazing job on our wedding. It rained and we thought that many of the shots we wanted would not be possible...wrong!!! Even better than we expected. Mitch was quick at getting us our images and provided them very quickly.
