    Creative and stunning photos

    I had out of the box ideas for my wedding, but many times my ideas tend not to turn out how I hope. Thankfully, Twyla has a gift for capturing the essence of people in her work and photos. When I asked Twyla about my idea of dyeing my wedding dress, she was the only person who caught my vision and helped me make it a reality- but much more beautiful than I could ever have achieved without her expert help!

    We had the privilege of working with Twyla for both our Engagement and our Wedding Photos, and I couldn't be more happy that we found her.
    We were both a bit worried about photos seeing as we are both not great in front of the camera and have had the issue of pushy people on both sides. Not only was Twyla able to relax us enough to get great pictures, but she was also able to help us tap into our emotions to get some absolute stunner. On top of all of that she was also able to handle pushy family members which made our wedding photos much more enjoyable and made us feel less like we were animals at a petting zoo. Twyla had fantastic availability and worked very hard to get awesome angles, and fun, interesting, and fresh poses both in our engagement and wedding sessions.
    I would highly, highly recommend Twyla and Admire Studios to anyone I know!

    Twyla Lapointe, Admire Studios... what can i say? Again, my wedding was over 2 years ago at which time Twyla was the answer to many prayers; she met my husband and I quite a few times leading up to our wedding so we could plan our package. For a steal of a deal Twyla offered everything we wanted and thensome: engagement pics, ALL day wedding coverage (legit-ly as soon as we got up in the morning until EVERYTHING was done.. even after we left and a few guests stayed to help clean, Twyla and her second- her husband Paul- were still there!), a photobooth with 2 prints on site of each picture (one for us to keep in a wedding album, one for the guest to keep), a Dress 2.0 session (trash the dress, rock the dress.. I went to a water spray park in mine, so the possibilities are endless!), and a boudoir session.. oh, and a leather bound 30 page album of memories. I recommend Twyla and Admire Studios to everyone I know and will continue to do so for probably ever :P

Meet the Team

Twyla Lapointe
Twyla Lapointe
Photographer and Owner

I collect beautiful things.

A close friend of mine once said that the thing she thought set me apart from everyone else was that I collected beauty – in people, in artwork, in photos, in teapots and household items. No matter what I do, I try to collect beauty.

I have a fine art degree.

Not only do I know how to take photographs, I am also quite good at drawing, printmaking, sculpture in wood, glass, and found objects and more. My favourite art genre is personal conceptual gallery art, like French artist Sophie Calle’s “Take Care of Yourself” collection.

It’s not my first rodeo.

It’s probably safe to say that over the course of my career I have shot over 150,000 photos professionally. I have backup gear just in case and I use a special lens bag to make sure I can always get the shot. I’ve trained from the best, and now I train photographers how to run their business. I have spoken at photography conferences and I coach photographers to improve their companies through time management and business training.

I am a HUGE nerd and I also married one.

I have played Dungeons and Dragons and have a huge geek board game collection – I love Citadels the most. I have LARPed, cosplayed multiple times, and attended several cities’ Comic Cons. I watch every superhero movie and TV show that comes out. The sounds of anime are currently floating from my kitchen where hubby is making supper. He might be reading a comic book or watching anime as you read this.

I am relentlessly hopeful.

When the world seems to be caving in, I am always realistic – but I am also always hopeful. I am not the kind of person who is just positive all the time. I just have hope for every day.

I am spiritual and scientific.

I am a practicing Catholic, and love the spiritual and mystical side of life as much as I love science. I love research and logic and dancing in the rain. I have been accused of having Spock-like qualities and certainly Sheldon-like radar for the best seat in the house.

I am fascinated by people.

People are the reason I do what I do. Studying their personalities, and how they shine through their eyes and smiles, how they move. I love all of that aspect of my work. I’m looking forward to meeting you. I hope we can work together!
