If you are inspired by art and desire to be part of a photography production; you are in the right place!

We seek the unique and wonderful differences in each of our subjects.  We look for those that have an interest in the arts and can be natural – posing is not on the repertoire!   We seek models that can work with us long-term, those who are love art, are comfortable with their form and are wonderfully reliable.

About our Professional Fine Art Photography Production:

Wonderful locations, professional art direction, elegant props, portable lighting and equipment on location.

“Serenity”

When I photograph a subject, I not only wish to capture them within a certain moment in time, but to catch the essence of their very soul – at times revealed in just a flicker in that moment in time. Creative Portrait Installment 2: Serenity prayer in New York City.

My Groom Waits – Editor’s Choice – #Viewbug

My Groom Waits

A beautiful bride looks out the window just before meeting her husband-to-be. This photo captures the bride’s sense of calm before the bustle of the day’s activity is about to begin.

Taking the time to capture an image such as this during the getting ready portion of the wedding day, gives her a moment to pause and reflect on all that is before her.  A unique ‘getting ready’ memory that brides love to have from their wedding day! An inspiring photograph voted “Popular” on 500px.com.

Gorgeous Vintage Engagement – Edmonton

There are some absolutely outstanding engagement sessions that truly stand out.  This one in particular, a super-sweet couple, divinely in love, draws you in with their ease in front of the camera and with each other.  Our locations were, to say the least, outstanding!

Our day started out a a train museum, followed by some time in rural/remote areas.  By far, this is one of my favorite engagements.  Congrats to you both, Corey & Christine.  Wishing you the very best in your future together!

This location and couple had us at ‘hello’!  Take an ultra-windy day (we love these kinds of days) and a couple that look like GQ models in love that are ultimately, definitely not shy in front of the camera…well, folks, this is how award-winning photos are made!  See their engagement story in photographs below (just a few) – and for more, see the video here!

Romantic Mountain Wedding at Lake Louise

The wedding day of Jason and Christine started out at sunrise, a dreamy scene, warm, serene and at the home of our brides parents on the outskirts of Calgary, where a beautiful tea ceremony was held.  How can you go wrong with such a vibrant palette of colours, all the family gathered around — not to mention beautiful traditions and gifts for the couple! Following the tea ceremony, Jason carried Christine on his back (as is tradition) to the getaway car which took them to the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise ceremony and then the hotel’s Victoria Room reception, all nestled in the gorgeous Alberta Mountains.  We were taken away by the warmth and good hearts of our bridal couple, the love they had for each other and the beautiful surroundings!

Congrats to you both Jason & Christine!

Living in the Moment

“Couples choose unplugged weddings not just to ensure the quality of professional images. They also do it to keep guests engaged and focused on the ceremony itself.”

Bridal ipadI recently read an interesting article from CNN entitled: “When snap-happy guests go too far” all about photo-bombing at weddings.This hits very close to home for me as it is a very real scenario at many weddings we photograph.  One of the worst scenarios I have ever encountered in this regard, was a very small wedding of about 30 guests, 85% of them had a camera phone (including a sweet, but very busy 5 year old) pointed at the couple for the entire ceremony and during the signing of the wedding certificate.  The guests were crowded around the signing table to the point that I was unable to get in front of them for this all-important photograph.  Later, the bride actually apologized to me as she clearly understood what had just happened.A photographer within the CNN article quoted: “It’s not me that you’re hurting, it’s the bride and groom and those who have been invited,” she said. “You don’t want to be the person who blocks the first kiss not just from me, but from other guests, or whose flash ruins the shot when the bride’s father is crying as he walks down the aisle.”

As much as social media, selfies and status updates are a norm, we are finding that couples are drawn to the unplugged wedding. Some of our bridal couples have even requested a little blurb from us regarding “no photography moments” during their wedding.

The following paragraph was written by an anonymous author (I wish I knew who, so I could give credit to where it is due) but I have found it fundamental to photographing the natural gesture at weddings that we love to capture; i.e, not having to look past those cameras and camera phones!

Canada’s Top Photographer Nomination!

I knew it was going to be a good day when I opened my mail to find a message from Bride.Canada informing us that we have 4 finalist images for TOP engagement photos throughout all of Canada!  Having this number of images to the finals from one photographer has never been seen, and so, we were given special recognition in honor of breaking a record!

We love the creative process within engagement sessions – the possibilities truly are endless!  Capturing couples as naturally as possible, loving life and each other, un-posed and in artistic form is what we literally live for.  It’s nice to see that our hard work, travels, (throughout Canada and the USA), and our long line of happy couples, gain a second look.  There is much more to come…and we can’t wait to post our finalist photos for TOP Wedding Photography! (coming soon!)

A Beautiful Vintage Wedding

Beautiful Canadian wedding below, the full (complimentary) beautiful photographic story album can be viewed here in video format. 

Enjoy!

 

Spring in New York City and…4000 miles for a sandwich.

I had gone to New York last year about this time and discovered how different the face of the city had changed.  This time the apple trees were blossoming and it seemed almost summertime.   I had a few photoshoots while in NYC and in between those shoots, walked the streets seeking the color and gesture that the city offers.  I have to say I love the people there – they have a very unique character – and the food was amazing.  New Yorkers sure know how to eat!  We stayed in a beautiful hotel on the water (Sheraton Lincoln – thanks for everything!) and took beautiful shots at the Manhattan Skyline.

We had some adventures while shooting some of these street photos, for example, got into a small fight in Washington Square Park, met a movie star on the streets of Greenwich Village (couldn’t tell you his name though – Daniel something?!), lots of nudity on a hot day in Central Park, visited the unbelievable B&H Photo (twice!), ate cannolies and “Nuts for Nuts” worth killing for and not to mention Katz Deli.  Oh Katz Deli… where have you been all of my life?  Do you not know your sinfully delicious mile-high brisket beef is calling me even still?

Yes, we are back in Canada now but New York memories still linger.  Ah.. the Empire State Building at twilight, Brooklyn Bridge at 2 am, Pier 17 on the dock, Dunkin Donuts breakfasts and the ocean splashing up on the rocks.  What a wonderful place – a photographers dream!  We’ll be back – same time next year?  Until then, we have more photos posted on our website here under “NEW’!  Scenes from NYC“.
