Garry’s Birthday Party | Lethbridge Event Photography

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Great Gatsby themed birthday party in Lethbridge

When Garry celebrated his 50th birthday, his friends and family threw him a wonderful themed birthday party: The Great Garry, all in Roaring 20s style! I was so impressed with the attention to detail that went into the party and that all the guests ran with the theme and dressed up. Everyone clearly had a lot of fun and I love how outgoing and joyful Garry and his wife Rita are together. Happy birthday, Garry! (more…)

Lana | Lethbridge Exhibition & Dance Performance

Lana Gabor art opening and dance performance, Lethbridge, Alberta

I recently attended the reception for Tracing the Elusive Past of the Chinarians, featuring works from the collection of Lana Gabor, and highly recommend you go check it out at the Helen Christou Gallery! I used to dance with Lana when she lived in Lethbridge, so I was excited to hear she was coming back from Vancouver for her show opening at the University of Lethbridge. She performed one dance piece for the opening, showing off her amazing talent :) (more…)

Lethbridge World AIDS Day 2012

This year I had the honor of photographing the World AIDS Day event held by the Lethbridge HIV Connection in Galt Gardens. People gathered together to form a human ribbon, illuminated only by candles (such a wonderful idea!). Despite it being a little chilly the turn out was great, and I got to crash the fashion show at the SAAG in my full winter attire, climb through a little trap door, and take the photo from the SAAG’s roof… not your typical Friday night! The wind made the candle-lit ribbon short lived, but it turned out great despite that :) (more…)

Hawksley Workman | Live in Lethbridge

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

This was possibly the best Lethbridge show this year! The Geomatic Attic brought in the super talented Hawksley Workman to Lethbridge this November and due to popular demand, the show was upgraded to Southminster United Church. It was the perfect venue for his stripped down show, which featured him on guitar and Mr. Lonely on piano and no other band members. He told hilarious stories in between songs, and drew out the show and over-sang because of how great the audio was in that space. His performance was stunning and sounded just perfect. He was so expressive that I couldn’t help but take a few photos! (more…)

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2012

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Lethbridge’s most recent zombie walk was yet again a huge success! This year the weather was gorgeous so there were more summer themed zombies, and as usual the makeup and costumes were so impressive! It’s great that so many adults and children can get together and have such a great time while shuffling along and eating brains :) I love when spectators pull their cars over to watch and participate when all the zombies attack them!

Coulee Carnage: Hammer Out MS | Warhammer Tournament

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

I have a feeling most of the people reading this blog don’t know what Warhammer is, and honestly, I don’t know much about it myself ;) (basically it’s a tabletop fantasy strategy war game, but Wikipedia does a better job describing it). The important thing, though, is that some guys here in Lethbridge got together and organized a weekend Warhammer tournament in efforts to raise money for MS. They had a killer turnout, and all together they raised $5000 for the MS Society! They got some great media coverage for the event, Coulee Carnage, and are going to run it again next year. I’m sure they will easily top that amount on the next one. Great works, guys! (more…)
