About


MY BEGINNINGS

I was born and live in Mexico City until 2014, my wife and my family of Canadian nationality were the reason for me to come to Canada where I now live happily.

My Career started in Mexico as director and coordinator of Fashion Shootings, something that is not so common to do where I am currently living. Not finding options for fashion shootings, I decided to study everything related to weddings, from the best photography and lighting techniques to knowing how to address brides and grooms in the correct way. That's how in 2015 I had my first wedding and now I have captured approximately 160 events and about 40 engagement sessions.

WHAT INSPIRES ME

When I decided to do wedding photography the first thing that inspired me was remembering the sentimental value, and the fun factor that my photographer achieved in my own wedding. I love taking photos that reflected real moments with photojournalistic touch.

Having lived in Mexico and having traveled through different countries has opened my imagination and creativity to achieve images with colors, textures and visual richness that transcend generations and that are not just a passing trend. I am sure you have seen so much photos with filters but that is not my style, my style is to compose images that can show the real colours

WHAT MOVES ME

I must confess that there are moments during weddings that touch my emotions deeply. As a human being, I am very moved by the things I see at weddings and therefore it is my goal not to miss moments that sometimes pass in mini seconds. I don't like to let go of my camera or stop taking photos because I know that something can happen at any moment. and I want to be ready to press the button and freeze what moves anyone's emotions.

My favorite photo from my wedding is a photo that was taken at the exit of the ceremony where I saw my grandfather there on the side and I was very moved to see him because I had never met him in the past until that day, he was there stating up waiting to say hi to me. Of course, I couldn't resist the tears and that moment was thanks to my photographer beautifully captured

MY VISION FOR YOUR EVENT

The number 1 thing I like to learn is the vision of my couples when they first reach out. Although I do wedding photography almost every weekend during May through October and some days in the winter, each wedding is different in its people, its colors, and its ambiance. Me and the team like to work in making images that reflect your vision and what you specially planned for your wedding day.

Everything about working with Alberto was beyond amazing!

I couldn鈥檛 be more grateful for all the effort that Alberto put into making my wedding day and engagement pictures so memorable, even though I made him do a little hike for the engagement pictures. I loved the result so much! Alberto worked with me since the beginning and he was able to make my husband comfortable with taking pictures (which he is not!). The video was one of my favourite items. I highly recommend him and will reach out to him for future mini-session.

Exceeded Expectations!

From our initial email right through to the delivery of our final wedding album and beyond, Alberto kept in constant and open communication with us. He was amazing to work with. He took our vision and made it come alive in photos. He is reliable, punctual, professional and a very talented photographer. He made us feel at ease and his clear instructions made us look amazing in our photos. We asked for a European feel for our photos and he made our Ottawa location look like we were in Europe! We loved our experience and would highly recommend Alberto. We would absolutely work with him again!

Easy, Efficient, and worth every penny

Alberto made our special day easy and efficient. We did not have to worry about any detail of the day. The meetings and the planning before took a lot of the stress away. Alberto was always available and answered his emails/messages very quickly and made sure everything was explained. The prices were excellent and for the quality of photos you could not get anything better. The photos of our wedding were breathtaking. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and end result for our big day. We would recommend Alberto Ponce Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Always professional and got us the best shots

Planning a wedding during the covid restrictions was always going to be a challenge. Alberto was always willing to help out with suggestions and assistance each time we had to postpone the date.

Alberto and his team were professional and got us some amazing shots for both our engagement session and wedding.

Everyone at the wedding had great things to say about the team.

Great experience

Alberto was great right from the beginning. I emailed a list of questionnaires to multiple photographers and he responded back at 2am. If you have ideas or certain things you want, he will try his very best to make sure it happens and even add a little Alberto twist to it. He makes you feel comfortable in your own skin. Great to work with. Very professional!!!

I鈥檓 Ronny...

My never-ending passion is for the arts, the poetry of lighting, and capturing human emotions through images from a unique perspective. I studied film and television, I developed my career in Chile and Argentina. After a long career of working in Latin America, I ended up in Vancouver, BC, where I worked as a freelancer and contractor for a well-known film company. Recently, I moved to Ottawa and operate from there, GTA and Montreal. It is exciting to experience a new side of Canada!

Travelling is an addiction of mine 鈥 I have travelled and backpacked around the world within 26 countries and am always anticipating what I will see next. Collectively, these trips have enabled me to gain a wider understanding of people and their cultures, and fuelled my creativity with my clients. I love helping my clients mark their fondest memories and lifestyle events by coming up with unique ways to do so, through both photos and videos.
