About Us

John and Marlene Lister are experienced and artistic photographers living and working in Cornwall, ON.

They provide many forms of photography to their clients, and operate several websites in order to focus on the various types of photography they offer. They operate a number of websites, focusing on Wedding Photography, Real Estate Photography, Portraits, Green Screen Photography, Cosplay Photography, Boudoir Photography, Glamour Photography and many other styles, in the Cornwall, ON area.


Most people are somewhat nervous about having their photo taken. We have ways to bring that inner child out to the surface. We then capture that confidence or joy with the camera.


We've photographed just about everything over the years, and even won some awards along the way. We know what your situation will require, whether it's camera settings, or a little encouragment.


Although every photographer spends many hours working behind the scenes, we pass on the lowest prices possible to our clients, all the while providing professional service.

The Team

Our town is small, and so is our team. John and Marlene form the partnership that can handle everything from grand openings, weddings, boudoir photography, real estate, and just about anything else you may want photographed.
