Mike & Ness

July 22, 2015 / no comments

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of teaming up with the dynamic duo, Mike & Ness for the first time ever. From the moment I met the two at Genevieve and Patrick’s wedding rehearsal, I knew this would be the start of something great. The couple was so much fun to work with – any reservations I had walking into that rehearsal were immediately eliminated by the warm smiles on both their faces. When I looked over and saw Mike and Ness giving the family a warm welcome as they entered the church, I was quickly reassured – these guys have something special, I thought to myself.

One day later, we woke up to the inviting summer warmth which welcomed Genevieve and Patrick’s big day. That morning Mike and Ness needed to be at two places at once, and what better way to accomplish this potentially difficult task, than by assigning it to a duo! Ness headed to the bride’s hotel room to capture the her morning memories, while Mike was needed early at the ceremony for boutonniere pinning with the groom and groomsmen. Following the morning preparations and a lovely fairytale ceremony, we headed for the reception at the Holiday Inn in Kanata.

Once Divine and I sat down for dinner with Mike and Ness, we got to learn more about how the two love birds united. The couple met nine years ago, thanks to a shared sense of humour and a love for pirates. After hearing how both share a love for expressing theirselves in a creative way and how they are easily inspired by the beautiful things around them, I was not surprised they had found each other – the perfect match.

Ness has always been artistic; drawing, painting and sewing since the time she was young. Having a creative eye, Ness went on to pursue the Graphic Design program at Algonquin College. It was not long after graduating that she discovered where her true passion lay – photography! She decided this was the direction she wanted to take and her partner Mike supported the idea as this too, was something he very much enjoyed. The two quickly discovered that doing wedding photo shoots gave them the most pleasure.

“When wedding season hits, I’m always so thrilled to see what new and creative ideas couples have thought up to make a day that is uniquely theirs.”- Ness

Once the couple realized they share the same excitement and dedication for not only photography, but weddings, the two decided to take the plunge and start their own wedding photography business, giving birth to Mike &Ness Photography.

Mike and Ness are currently living in Kemptville, Ontario and already are busy with a summer fully booked with weddings. It is easy to see that the secret of this humble couple’s success stems from their individual talents which compliment each other so beautifully.


“Ness and I work so well together. I wouldn’t be the photographer I am today without her. Having someone to rely on every step of the way through a long and stressful wedding means I can focus on keeping the energy, and positivity high through out.” – Mike

I think I speak for all RSVP when I say we are ecstatic to have teamed up with Mike & Ness as they are now featured in our Wedding-in-a-Box package as well as one our preferred photographers we recommend to all our clients.

We look forward to joined forces again shortly!
