Sudbury Business – Sudbury Ontario Photographer

Monday, April 20th, 2015

I enjoy photographing all aspects of the industrial industry.  I sometimes describe my job to others as the “How It’s Made” TV show but with photography as over the years I have photographed many products from start to finish.  It’s fascinating to see something created from a raw material to finished  functioning product.

If your companies photography has not been updated in the past year, or you have new products, people, or facilities that need to be showcased I might be able to help.

Hodgeblog Flashback

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

As we are off this week so I have no new images to post I decided to go back a year and see what I captured over the holidays.  I will now dub thee post the “Hodgeblog Flashback” and every so often I will go back a year and post some images from that time.  Here are just a few of the many sessions I had over Xmas holidays 2007.

Brides, PLEASE READ.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!.  Things are moving FAST for us and we are now booking for 2011
(we might have a few more weekends open so please call).

We want you to have a “stress free wedding”.  Go ahead and compare us to others, we encourage it, as we want you to be 100% sure that you want us to document your wedding, it’s true what they say “you get what you pay for”.  Don’t settle for a photographer that looks at your wedding day as a “job”, you want a photographer that  is fun, upbeat, and enjoys your day just as much as you do, and of course, get some kick-butt images to tell the story over and over.

Ask yourself what your wedding photography means to you. What will it mean to you after your wedding day?  This is a big decision and one that should not be taken lightly, so take the time to get to know your photographer.  Ask your photographer a few key questions:

How long has he/she been in photographing weddings?
Are they experienced enough to handle any situation?
Does your photographer have a studio (for backup plans)
Does he/she belong to any professional associations?
Does your photographer do this full time or part time?
What happens if it rains? etc….

You want a photographer that has  have all of these issues covered.

Look over everything we have to offer on this page, and then give us a call so that we can meet and further discuss YOUR wedding day. We will answer any questions you may have.  We do require you to come in for a consultation as we want to answer all your questions in person face to face.

At the very bottom of the email, read some of our testimonials from our brides and grooms, their words speak for themselves.

Remember, you are not hiring a photographer to take your wedding pictures, your investing in a studio that will help make your day one that everyone can remember, flow smoothly and stress free, and have beautiful memories of one of the most important days of your lives.

Look over our packages that include your wedding day, and other portrait sessions and if you have any questions give us a call.

TESTIMONIALS

James & Jocelyne

What can I say?!?!!  We haven’t gotten all of our photos yet but what we have seen is unbelievable.  Pat was not too sure of James’ style at first but once our engagement session was finished and he got to see what you do he loved it!!!  We both rave to all our friends and family what talent James has.  Pat says he makes him look like a GQ model HaHaHa!!! After we had finished shooting the day of the wedding Pat says we didn’t pay enough!!! ( Don’t let this comment influence a price hike J).  I can’t believe how comfortable you both made us feel and it felt like we’ve been long time friends and everything was natural

It’s a little over a week after our wedding and our teaser pod has come in so handy!!! We forgot all our pictures that people have given us in Sudbury with my parents…whereas with the teaser pod, we never leave home without it!!!!! ( it fits in my purse very nicely) It is such a convenient way to show people some of our photos and it gives them and US a hint of what will be coming, we couldn’t be happier and we can’t wait!!!!

Like I mentioned before Pat was such a skeptic and he thought the price was too much, but now he thinks almost (and I say almost!) any price is worth for James to work his magic!!! Pat is thinking of other events in our life that he’d like James to capture like our goddaughter as she will soon be one and she is just so cute!!!!

If we haven’t said it a million times already THANK YOU so much!!!!! The whole experience couldn’t have gone better.  Thank you Jocelyne for being my unofficial other brides maid!!! ( As I only had one) I love my sister but you just helped so much as well with my dress and other little things.  People had actually mistaken you for one of my best friends Sam Pelletier-Pellerin ( but she wasn’t at the wedding) and they got confused when you started helping James…J

We will keep in touch for sure for future events!!!! My parents have their 40th wedding anniversary coming up in three years maybe I should book you now!?!! HaHaHa.

Love

Pat and Danielle Gladu

Read what one groom says about us from his wedding this past season:

“To anyone seeking a photographer, look no further!

When my wife Christine and I were setting the budgets for our wedding, one area that we both agreed should not be undervalued was the wedding photos. Our thinking was simply that these were not just photos, they are our memories. A friend of ours recommended Hodgins Photography, and I am glad he did. James and his lovely wife Jocelyne warmly answered any question we had over the phone and agreed to meet with us for a consult at our convenience. Christine and I decided that we would not only acquire their services but also let James give us some direction as to how to fit the photo session into our wedding day. Needless to say, this left us feeling very at ease and the entire photo taking experience passed by effortlessly.  James and Jocelyne exceeded my expectations, and I have received nothing but the most envious of compliments from every single person that has viewed the photos. James truly possesses a remarkable talent for his craft and I would strongly recommend that any person seeking a photographer not only acquire his services, but also allocate the time for him to work what can only be described as his magic.

Once again James and Jocelyne I can’t thank you both enough for such exceptional service.

Sincerely,

Devin Kinsella

I have been meaning to tell you, ever since our wedding last year, just how happy I am with the pictures. You guys did such an amazing job. Our family and friends are still talking about the pictures and people ask us who our photographer was all the time.

I don’t usually like any pictures of myself…but I have to admit that I couldn’t stop looking at these pictures! It really means so much to me that I have such a great way to remember our day. I don’t think that I can put into words how thrilled we are with them. Also, you guys just made our day and the picture taking so much fun. It was a really enjoyable experience.

Thanks for everything

Hi Jocelyne & James,

I just wanted to let you know I got the photos today and they are amazing!!! I am so happy with them and I know Jonathon will be too. I showed some people in my office and they were sooo impressed. I can’ wait to get home now to watch the DVD. You can put the pics on line now. Again I just want to thank you and James so much for everything, when we were planning the wedding we decided that we would spend a good portion of our budget on our photographer and I am so glad we did, you have given us memories that will last a lifetime. Good luck with everything and you will for sure be hearing from us for baby pics next year.

Take care,

Candice Doherty

When was the last time…

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

you had pictures together?  What, like 16 years? haha.  Last night Joce and I had the pleasure of photographing Darla & Rene.  Darla has contracted my photography services on several occasions, and recently I contracted her, to assist me with Shari & Louis Wedding (a few posts below).  Rene, although we have never met, I have heard loads about him during my shoots with Darla.  They havent had any “real” portraits done since like their wedding day, so it was a real honor that they chose us to photograph them.  Thanks again guys for a great time and for the dinner company.  Today we are off to stokes. 🙂 haha.

Weddings

Sunday, September 7th, 2008


So your getting married, but your wedding is not a full day event?

Maybe your having a backyard ceremony with a few close friends and relatives?

Maybe this is your second wedding and you are keeping it small and quaint?

We know that EVERY couple wants the most amazing wedding images on their wedding day, but not everyone wants to purchase a Full Day Wedding Package.

That is why we have created our “Intimate Affair Wedding Package”. Actually we have had this package for over 5 years now, but we are starting to get more and more inquiries about these wedding occasions that Jocelyne and I thought we would promote it more openly to our future clients.

NOTE: This is not a full day coverage event.


This package is geared to your smaller wedding events that are generally very small with just a few close family and friends. The entire occasion is only a few hours with an intimate ceremony and maybe dinner & cocktails to follow with guests and family. Why not have outstanding images of your wedding since it’s still going to be one of the most amazing time of your life?

So what’s Included?

It’s pretty simple actually. The cost to have us at your Intimate Affair is $800 for  approximately 2hrs .  This is generally the ceremony, and photographs of the two of you afterwords. (not available for some Saturdays). You will receive a custom DVD with retouched High Rez (various color and b&w) image files that you can use to print your images.

We have photographed HUNDREDS of weddings and know what images to capture that will make your day special. Pictures of the two of you, your family, your kids, your pets. These are the important members of your wedding that we know you will want images of.

And because the intimate affair weddings are smaller, this gives us more time to be creative with the two of you so we can create images that reflect your personality and interests.


Don’t think that because the investment of the Intimate Affair is far less costly than our Full Day Wedding packages that you are going to get a lesser quality wedding coverage.

We take huge pride in all our weddings big and small, and we guarantee we will give you the best images we can that Hodgins Photography is known for, but don’t just take our word for it.

“Hi Jocelyne and James,

Wow…what can I say….. I never shed a tear on my wedding day but I totally cried like a baby when watching the DVD and looking over the proofs with my beloved husband Don.

We clearly understand why you are both in such high demand as you both share such creativeness and ingenuity and have so much fun with all your images.

We really appreciate that you took the time to work around your hectic schedule and agreed to photograph our wedding day with such short notice.

The suggestion to take photo’s prior to the wedding ceremony was a terrific solution and the images reflected such adoration with the entire family.

Thank you so much to both of you for capturing our family unit (including Toby of course) with such fondness and consideration.

Don and I sat together yet again :) to review the DVD and the proofs with our family and the reaction is always the same one of ahhh and delight!!

You both truly went beyond any of our expectations and we love the consideration and intimacy that went into creating the beautiful cover of our proof book and also the DVD cover front and back…it was such a thoughtful surprise.
James what can we say you truly have an eye for your creative images!!

James and Jocelyne you made us all feel so comfortable and worked so well together bringing originality to one of the most important days in our families life…………. thank you again from all of us!!”

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. Don & Lee Ann Harvey & Family

Testimonials

Edit this page.

Here’s what our clients have to say…

“Our wedding would not have been what it was without you all. You know that you have chosen the perfect photographer for your special day when your GUESTS are commenting on how fabulous your photographer is…when they haven’t even seen the pictures yet!”

Thanks again to Brent Wolhberg of Artifact Media
Also thanks to Clem Kutzli www.ckphotos.net for being my assistant that day.

“James,

You are the man! You are a master of your craft. If there were black belts in photography, you would be one. Actually, not only would you be a black belt but they’d give you your own temple somewhere in the Himalayan Mountains where you would teach young prodigies the art that you have perfected! I don’t know how to better explain the gift that you’ve given us. The images that you’ve captured for us are above and beyond anything that we could have imagined.

You’ve made my ugly mug look so good that I am unable to show the pictures to the female population – if I do, they get all crazy and want to bear my children – then I find myself having to fend them off with a stick!

Every picture is amazing and it’s hard to pick just a few to hang on our walls. We would like to put every single image on our walls, but I don’t think we have the wall space. So, really, there’s only one thing to do in this situation….build more walls!

– Ryan

PS. I’m not a photographer, but after a few wobbly pops I have attempted that ‘Sundance’ of yours….

…in other news, the neighbors have put up a very large fence…”

*************

“Ever since we got our pictures Ryan has been walking up and down the halls striking poses. He seems to think he has the potential to become a male model. I’m not allowed to use the phone because he thinks GQ Magazine might call him any day now.

James and Jocelyne, thank you both for everything! You have made this whole process a total joy and an unforgettable experience! We hope that you two had as much fun as we did on our crazy wedding day!

When our family grows we look forward to having you capture those moments as well!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for everything. It was exactly what we wanted and it was an unforgettable day!

Thank you for sharing it with us!

-Lynn

“Dear James & Jocelyne,

We wanted to post this on your website however, we couldn’t seem to figure out how lol… This is long overdue but Derek and I MUST thank you again!
We cannot tell you guys HOW many people have come up to us (and our parents) to compliment our wedding photographs… They just cannot believe them :)
James, you did an OUTSTANDING job capturing our wedding day. We are kind of stumped trying to find words because you really left us speechless! We have to be honest, we never hired a professional wedding VIDEOgrapher because we couldn’t find one…We were pretty dissapointed because we wanted to really “feel” and re-live our day every time we would watch the video…HOWEVER, after we saw our pictures and our AMAZING Wedding Story DVD, we no longer thought about the video lol…Everytime we watch the DVD (which is LOTS, because everyone wants to see it) , I cry (not Derek tho haha), and relive the day!!! IT truly is an amazing feeling….There is no price to the gift you have given us…It will be cherished forever…and Jocelyne, you are such an amazing person as well! You just ALWAYS know where to be, and what to be doing…You guys are a STELLAR couple!
Again, we could go on and on about how pleased we are…but I don’t want to waste too much of your photography time! haha….
You will DEFINITELY be seeing us for all photography sessions to come (ie: Trash the Dress, Baby (NOT PREGNANT YET hahaha!), kids, family ETC!!!! I just wouldn’t have it any other way…

Thank you (X a gazillion) for capturing our day :)
We appreciate it more than you’ll ever know!

Take care,

Julie & Derek”

Hi Jocelyne and James,

Mike and I watched the DVD and I have to tell you that it brought tears to my eyes. You
captured so many heartfelt moments throughout the day. We truly don’t feel as though we
even needed a videographer as the photos told our entire wedding story.

You truly captured all of the tiniest details that we may have otherwise forgotten and
I know that our families are going to be ecstatic about all of our family pics as well.

I just wanted to say thank you for documenting our day in such a magical and artistic way.”

Cheers
Melanie Squarzolo

We absolutely LOVE the photos and the “teaser pod” is so aptly named. Everyone I showed them to got to the last picture and said “awww, I want to see more.” I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures because the 25 that we got last night are absolutely amazing. I can’t believe that the pictures of me don’t show just how nervous I was. You guys made everything so easy for me and relieved a lot of my anxiety and everyone in the bridal party thought the two of you “made the day, and without them it could have been a really long day.” I’ve already warned Aaron that we will see a lot of you through the years to come.

Michelle Lafleur

Dear James and Jocelyne,

We would like to sincerely thank you for the gorgeous wedding photos! You truly captured the beauty and emotion of our wedding day in a way that has left us in awe. Our friends and family from across the globe have repeatedly commented on the beauty of our wedding photos… Each photo seemed to capture our friends, family, surroundings and ourselves at our best and every time we look at them, they bring a smile to our faces!”

We’re celebrating our third anniversary today and we began by watching the DVD of our wedding. We can’t thank you enough for capturing all of the intimate details of our big day. The DVD truly is a gift that we will treasure for many years to come.
Thanks again – we look forward to seeing you in October!”

“Hi Jocelyne and James,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner…. we knew both of you have been real real busy with your trip to the east coast and all the summer weddings.
