Jasmine & Blaine E-Shoot

On Tuesday Jasmine and Blaine met me for their engagement session. They were quite fun, and very spontanious which is so fun to work with. I didn't even have to try to get these two to be comfortable in front of the camera.

It was quite hilarious to see Blaine make Jasmine laugh....he was VERY good at it!!

Nothin' like a good tackling to show some romance ;)

I'm looking forward to your wedding just a couple of weeks away!

Shari & Carlos Wedding

Saturday was my first time shooting at the zoo, and I must say, what a phenominal location for pictures!! The rainforest was steaming, the flowers were blooming, and the animals were having a grand ol' time basking in the sun.

I love this area of the rainforest. There is some natural light that comes in just above them and illuminates the textured green wall behind.

A little bit of romance amongst the crowds.

Flamingos, Felipe, and Fun.
This building is pretty funky. You definitely don't find something quite like this away from the zoo.

Congrats Shari and Carlos!!!!

Kevin & Angela's Wedding

As soon as we got out to Glen Eagles for Kevin & Angela's photo session and reception, it started pouring.....and then hailing! We huddled underneath of the entrance for a few minutes, because we could see that the storm would pass quickly.

In no time, the storm passed, and the strong winds played beautifully with Angela's veil.

We spent a good chunk of our photo session underneath of the arches to get out of the crazy wind. I was LOVING the quality of light under there. I was like shooting with lots of soft boxes in the studio.
The bride.

The groom.

Blue skies accented with some dramatic clouds!

The decor in the reception room was phenominal!!

I really wish I could remember what was being said here......obviously quite hilarious and shocking!!

Dancing the night away.

Erin & Ryan E-Shoot

It's inevitable that on May long weekend, when everyone wants to go camping, it rains. I think it's almost assumed that it will rain, just like how we assume that gas prices will go up just before. Well, Saturday and Sunday I encountered some pretty crazy weather, and I loved it! I'll post some wedding pics from Sat soon, but first, here are some engagement pics from Erin and Ryan's shoot on Sunday. Our shoot was scheduled at 2:00, and we were both there a bit early....and it was POURING rain. We hung out in the cars for a bit and then at exactly 2:00, the rain stopped. Wow! I LOVE shooting just after a rain. It makes the greens pop out sooo much. No photoshopping done in these pics! These greens are straight off the camera. Also check out the steam coming off the bridge in the first shot by their feet.

I shot for about an hour with Erin and Ryan and just as we were walking back to the cars, it starts raining again. What great timing!
All the best with your wedding plans in Golden, B.C!!!!!!!

Jennifer & Michael E-Shoot

On Saturday, Jennifer and Michael met up with me for their engagement shoot. Here are a few:

A little foreshadowing of the near future....there was talk of going on this very cool zip line in the jungle for their honeymoon. Kinda looks like they're in the jungle in this shot, right? Ok, maybe it's just some Calgary trees. LOL.

I found this cool cross-processed action and thought I'd give it a try. Back in the days when I used to shoot film, we'd take slide film and run it through negative film chemicals to get this effect. Wow, digital is soooo much easier!

Shari & Carlos E-Shoot

Well, I'm almost full swing into wedding season, so I've been trying to get as many engagement shoots done now as possible. Here are a few pics from Shari & Carlos's engagement shoot. Just a week and a half to go guys!!

Amie & Allan E-Shoot

Saturday was a very busy afternoon! I had 3 engagement shoots that day because it was one of my last free Saturdays before crazy wedding season begins. Here are a few of my favorites from Amie & Allan's session...all I can say about this couple is fun, fun, fun! I'm looking forward to their wedding in Sept.

Feeling like the paparazzi (no idea how to spell that)....sneaking up on them.

A couple days of rain just before really makes the greens pop.
