Founded in 1997, byfield-pitman is one of Ottawa's longest-running photography companies.


Our wedding and event photographs are very candid and our work is best characterized by the sense of narrative that's present in our pictures. Our storytelling can be found in the emotional and joyful moments captured between a couple on their wedding day, and our flair for photojournalism can be seen in the way that we shoot events.


With our editorial and commercial work, our subjects are always poised and confident, while remaining warm and approachable. A common thread in our portraits is how at ease people look in front of our photographer's camera.


Ben Welland is a full-time professional photographer, and is the owner of byfield-pitman photography.
