Airdrie Festival of Lights

I've been shooting the Airdrie Festival of Lights for quite a few years now, and I must say, that this past Saturday was so wonderful for weather. The first year I shot this event, it was -30 and I wasn't sure that my fingers were still attached to my hands!! This year it was above zero and beautiful.

I think because of the nice weather, more people than usual came out for opening night on Saturday. The crowds were pretty dense and it was great to see everyone having fun and enjoying the season.

I was excited to see my favorite shot from last year used on the booklet cover for this year's events:

There were crafts, cookie decorating, and mini-donuts in the kids activity tent:

Clever the camel....this is one tough camel. Even a few years ago when it was -30 for opening night, Clever was still going strong for the kids!!

Product Shots

Well, wedding season is over and the snow has come!! It's always a strange feeling to go from being so incredibly busy to totally caught up. As I refect back on this last wedding season, I can't help but think it was the best one ever, with the best clients. Thank you so much to all of my 2008 wedding clients who chose me to capture your special day!!

I've moved on to some other projects for winter. Yesterday I was shooting product shots for Pharmasave's next ad campaign. I also did some product shots for the last AirdrieLIFE magazine. Here are a few of my favorite products put together from the two shoots. Can you believe that you can get all of these awesome products in Airdrie?? It's almost time for Christmas shopping and I'm excited to see what other gems I can find!!

Kari & Cory's Wedding

When I woke up on the morning of Kari and Cory's wedding, there was a rain/snow mix falling from the sky, and I thought, "Hmmmm....this weather could make for an interesting day." Ah, but I have such good luck. By the afternoon, the skies had cleared, and although it was a bit chilly, it was a great day.

Vanessa & I had a great time with Kari & Cory and their wedding party. They were totally into all of my suggestions and these two were super at working the romance.

Here is the story of their day:

The flowers were gorgeous:
