Frederick Brault

Contact Frederick Brault

Hi! My name is Frederick and my company name is Brophoto. At the end of 2014, I quit my job as a landscape architect to pursue my passion; wedding photography! Playing with light and capturing authentic moments is what I love! And when those moments include smiles and laughter, I really get a sense of fulfillment! I find there is nothing more beautiful than a happy couple having fun together! 
On a more personal note, I'm the father of 3 beautiful little girls! I've been with Elizabeth, the love of my life, for almost 2 decades now! I enjoy camping, trekking, gardening, politics, eating good food with friends and family, going to the movies and travelling! 
I can't wait hear more about you two and about your wedding!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm from the south shore of Montreal, Canada. I charge travel fees for weddings that require me to drive more than 2 hours to get there. But no worries, I love travelling! Aside from the Montreal area, I shot weddings and engagement photoshoots in Toronto, in Quebec City and even at Hampton Beach, in the US! I follow  
"my" couples wherever they are!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been a full time wedding photographer since 2015. So far, I have photographed almost 90 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I have a photojournalistic approach and I continuously try to be creative in the way I capture the scene in front of me. Sometimes though, I might move a person or an object, or give a few directions if I feel it will help create a more beautiful picture! It's your day, and I want your pictures to tell the whole story, but also to be as special and epic as possible! I love playing with light, whether it be natural or artificial. And of course, I will also shoot family portraits, so that you have a nice souvenir of the people attending your wedding!

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My 12 hour package is perfect to capture pretty much all the important moments of your special day. It's currently (as of 2023) priced between 4000$ and 4500$ CAD.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I don't have a studio, but I usually meet clients in their home, public places or on Zoom, the latter becoming the more popular option.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I followed one photography class during my landscape architecture studies. Since then, I'm pretty much self-taught and I attend conferences and follow workshops at least once or twice per year. I've had the chance to have teachings by amazing photographers such as Bob Davis, Cafa Liu, Yervant and Joe McNally (yes, the National Geographic guy)!

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

If you like my pictures, just contact me so you we can learn more about each other and so you can see if the "fit" between you and I is good!
