Aerial photography!

Monday, October 6th, 2008

As you can tell, I’m trying to catch up on photos before I leave!

On Saturday Hope sent Sarah and I out to do aerial shots of a few branches throughout Alberta. It was the first time for both Sarah and me to do aerial photography and fly in a small plane, so what an experience! Hope’s cousin Josh was the pilot, and he was awesome to fly with. He was fun to be around and really good at what he does (oh it made the day less painful).

I was worried about motion sickness, so Hope got me sea-bands to wear. She tried to talk me into Gravol (it`s an anti-nauseant for those of you in the US), but that stuff knocks me out; Sarah has learnt it is very chemically similar to sleeping pills, which ironically don`t work for me!

Hope, James, and Jaxen saw us off. Jaxen was the only one okay with being up that early.

Liz & Aaron’s wedding

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Last weekend I had the honor of shooting Liz & Aaron’s wedding (which was my only private one this year). I had such a great time being able to spend such a special day with friends, and they were beyond easy to photograph! We totally fluked out with our locations because apparently the wind was unbearable that day, but we only felt a breeze where we went. The bridal party was hilarious and the reception was so much fun, with the Chevelles playing. It was fun to finally spend a reception with Dino; he has known Liz much longer than I have. Thanks for letting me do your wedding :)
