Cicala

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Well, this makes it obvious I am a little behind on personal work… these photos are from February! Cicala played at the GCBC Lounge at Henotic to an unfortunately small crowd, but the intimacy there meant I could sprawl out on one of the couches, which was pretty fantastic as I remember being exhausted that night :)

Ashley & Eric

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Last Saturday the rain came pouring down, but Ashley and Eric were good sports and braved it with me for their wedding photos! This adorable young couple stayed positive through the whole day – being in love does that to you! – even though we were all soaked and chilly. Besides, rain is supposed to be good luck, and it made everything so green!

Their ceremony at E-Free was extra special because Eric’s dad performed the service! I was impressed he made it through without tears… he is a strong man :)

I also have to give kudos to their terrific wedding party who froze their butts off while we were taking photos! Eric’s brother was definitely the youngest groomsman I’ve ever photographed, and Ashley’s brother Chad and his fiancee Julie were also included, which is awesome because I’ll be seeing them again in August for their own wedding.

Ashley & Eric and their friends were so easy to work with, and in case I didn’t mention it before, cute cute cute! I’m so excited to work with the family again :D

Mother Mother and Said the Whale

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

Earlier this year when I swung by Henotic to shoot the photos for their website, I brought along a CD I was particularly fond of at the time, O My Heart by Mother Mother. Though these guys have been making huge waves, they’re not a “top 40” band and I thought owners Jason and Adam would dig the music (which they did). Imagine my delight when a couple months later, they book Mother Mother to play at Henotic! (The moral of this story is that if you find good music, don’t keep it to yourself!)

Lethbridge does not get enough big “small” shows, so this was a fantastic experience – and it proved we can fill a venue when exceptional indie bands come though. The guys at Henotic really rose to the occasion and the show ran flawlessly; the restaurant proved to be the perfect venue.

I feel so lucky to have seen Mother Mother live as they are keeping a pretty strong hold on being one of my favorite bands, and they put on the best show I’ve seen this year. So impressive! Check them out on MySpace

They also made a great choice in having Said the Whale open up for them. I’ve seen these guys more times than I can count because they love us in Lethbridge, and it’s been wonderful to see how they are growing as a band (and I was even really impressed with them the first time I saw them!) :)

Joan & Erwin – the pre-wedding session

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Just before I went to Vegas, I did a pre-wedding photo session with Joan and Erwin that was way more in depth than their engagement shoot. I was so sad to be away for their wedding (which Jan shot in my place) so this took the place of the bridal photos we would have done that day. They both looked gorgeous, and I was thankful for our indoor locations because it was a bit chilly outside! We started in the beautiful Galt Museum, then went to Henotic Restaurant.

I am so happy with how this session turned out; I think it is one of my favorites. I think I was feeling inspired that Vegas was only two days away when I shot this!

Again, I am excited by the slideshow!
