Lindsay & Al’s Wedding

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Wondering how “Like a Prayer” can find its way into a wedding slideshow? Be sure to click on Read More and check out the full entry here :)

I’m starting to see why wedding photographers stop posting blogs during wedding season, but I vowed to keep up with these! As long as I make it before the next weekend I am happy :) The problem this week is that Al and Lindsay were so cute AND had me booked for longer, so I had so many great shots to sort through! Their fun attitude lent itself well to a lot of great photos.

Lindsay and Al chose to see each other before everyone else was around and do the photos as the first part of the day, allowing them to be totally ready to party once the ceremony was done and the tables rolled out. I love being there to capture when the couple sees each other for the first time all done up; there is always such a look of awe and appreciation they give each other.

I loved being a part of their day. The bridal party was a riot (I had to be told a few times not to encourage certain members by laughing at their crude jokes!) and we had a beautiful sunny day to work with. Late last year I shot his brother Tyler’s wedding (who was in the bridal party this time around), and it makes it so much easier (and fun!) when you already know a chunk of the family; at the very least, it saves me from calling a few extra people “hey you!” throughout the day ;)

A big thank you again to Michael for assisting! He had lights out and ready to go when I needed them!

Amber & Ian

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Last Saturday I had the honor of photographing Amber and Ian’s wedding (with Michael Warf as my second shooter) and we had a blast with this fun couple! They are so cute and I love their goofy senses of humor, which I haven’t been able to get enough of since I met them last year. I was sad to only have a limited amount of time to shoot them, but we worked quickly and did tons in that time. Amber was a natural in front of the camera, but I think Ian did just as awesome as her (and he had doubts, sheesh!).

I hope you guys are having a blast in Thailand!

This was such a fun wedding… I wish I had time to show them ALL right now, but you’ll have to make due with one:

Kelsie – the snow photos

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Hoo boy, it seems a little strange posting photos of Kelsie in total white out when it’s finally warm outside, but sometimes I get a little behind in my personal work! I think the problem is that I hate winter. I hate winter a lot. During winter, I tried to be in denial that it was happening. Every time I’d open Lightroom and see these photos of Kelsie in the snow (and trust me, they came up a lot since we did them on New Years Day), I’d feel so cold and want summer, so I tried to pretend the photos weren’t there. Now that it’s officially spring, winter and I are kind of on speaking terms again. You know, like when you run into an ex and you say a polite hello, then continue on your way, but complain to your friends about it later? Winter and I are kind of like that right now.

Anyhow, Kelsie was as beautiful and sexy as always, and it wasn’t THAT cold compared the other days that week (a smokin’ hot -15C!) but cold enough I can definitely admire her for doing these. If it looks like she has dandruff, it’s just snow I got sick of Photoshopping out!

Kelsie sneak peak

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

On New Years Day I took a very brave Kelsie out for some winter photos. Henderson Lake, the Lethbridge location normally most overrun with wedding and portrait photographers, was absolutely barren except for a jogger and an unfortunate man stuck in a snowbank, trying to dig his vehicle out… oh, and us fools! It started to snow just as we left Kelsie’s house, which added such a gorgeous haze to the background of the photos. (I won’t complain about how long it took to Photoshop the snow flecks off of Kelsie.)
