Justin K. from Algonquin College says in his 5 Star Online Review  

"I came to Spencer photography to get my college graduation photos done as well as some casual photos. Robin was funny, laid back, and very responsive throughout the booking, photos, and ordering. We had our pictures back to us within 2 hours!! This is unheard of. Robin makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire process and I am so glad I made the decision to go here. Very affordable and well worth the money."

"Amazing work. Robin takes the time to get all photos in that you want and works with you until you are happy with the results. Very patient, never rushes you and puts a lot of effort into making the pictures perfect. Very friendly as well and very quick in supplying proofs to choose photos. Much better then in school grad photos, much more personal."

Our Awards and Honors

Spencer Studio's 40 year history makes me proud to be one of Ottawa's oldest and most trusted portrait photography studios.

With so many photographers out there it's the national and international awards, recognitions and accreditations from our peers through professional photographers associations and professional photography competitions and also the People's Choice and Viewer's Choice awards that separate us from many of the other professional photographers in Ottawa.


You will notice in our reviews that clients say we make them feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera, producing authentic expressions and genuine smiles. 


Our Efforts To Earn Good Karma by Giving Back

My proudest achievement is a Paul Harris Fellowship presented to me by Rotary International in recognition of my community and international service. Whether it's volunteering my photography skills to some local charities, or running portrait promotions to buy wheelchairs for the third world or to fund a well in Africa I have always felt a personal and corporate responsibility to help where I can, in my small way. Here is a list of our Awards and Honors.
