Cassandra in a web

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

A couple months ago Cassandra came to me with a fantastic jungle gym she had found. You know how they are making all the playgrounds “safer” these days by ripping out the fun wooden ones and replacing them with “soft” plastic? Well, this one somehow made it through the approval process despite that!

Because of the cold weather we hadn’t been able to use it for a shoot until now, and even so we ended up with numb hands and barely finished before the local wind warning that evening kicked in!

Cassandra used to be a gymnast when she was younger, so she was the perfect model for this shoot. (more…)

Shooting with Suderman: Doug & Kristine’s Halloween Wedding

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

This Halloween, Andrew Suderman was gracious enough to let me second-shoot for him for this really unique wedding! Doug and Kristine combined the chilly autumn weather with some excellent Halloween elements, which was right up my alley :)

I had Andrew assist me earlier this year, so it was cool to switch the roles. He’s a super awesome up and coming photographer in town, so make sure you check out his Flickr page!

Doug and Kris started with a “regular” wedding (well, regular but with Halloween decorations) in the German Canadian Club, and then we went outside for family photos. Unfortunately the wind was a chilly 80km/hr that day, so we weren’t able to stay outside for very long! Andrew set up his lights inside, so I wandered around capturing all the neat little details they had arranged in the hall.

After the lunch reception (they had an early wedding), we drove out to Stirling to go to the renown Haunted House! We were instructed that we could take photos inside, as long as they looked “creepy.” I am so glad Andrew had a flashlight in his gear bag so we could focus our cameras on them! And I have to admit, I was a very bad second shooter and totally hijacked that portion of the shoot! ;)

Their second, evening reception saw all the guests return in Halloween costumes. So much fun! (more…)

The Bridge Centennial Lighting

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

On September 5th the city commemorated the centennial anniversary of our famous high level bridge by shining a bunch of bright lights on it. Though in person it was a bit of a disappointment, it gave every photographer in town an awesome subject :)

Janae

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Though Janae graduated some time ago, she never had photos done in her awesome blue dress… and better late than never! We spent a few gorgeous evening hours taking photos around town, and though she didn’t think she knew how to pose, she did a pretty good job following my directions :) After our nature-y stops we caught the amazing sunset, and faked some evening photos. This was such a great dress for her; it matched her eyes perfectly!

WPPI Las Vegas 2009

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

How could I NOT use the most cliched song for this? ;)

I figured it would be a good idea to blog about WPPI 2009 in Las Vegas before I run off to Photoshop World in Boston next week!

This is a longer entry, so there are more after the cut!

A weekend in the Crowsnest Pass

Monday, August 11th, 2008

Last weekend I managed to go back home for a few days, and take some photos I’ve been itching to do for some time! There really aren’t enough free weekends during wedding season to go to the CNP, and then it’s just too cold.

First I started with some light painting, and my mom helped as my assistant :)
