Ann Wen + Mathieu Louis-Seize   Green Tea Photography    (Ottawa, ON)

Better than cheesecake on a Wednesday, Ann and Matt of Green Tea Photography are internationally acclaimed photographers with a love of life and a passion for everything awesome.

With more awards under their belts than you can shake a stick at (including over 245 from the PWPC) they do their best to meld both creative fine-art and photojournalistic storytelling into the most colourful, vibrant and emotional impactful images possible.

So why did we call ourselves Green Tea Photography? Apart from being good for the soul and a fresh and timeless mix of East meets West, we met for the very first time on a cold winter's day over a cup of deliciousness. Green tea is where Our Story began.
