Over the holidays I was visiting family in Calgary and totally lucked out with not freezing to death. I grew up there so I know there is a good chance the weather will be ok, sometimes there is even a lovely Chinook, but more often than not the cold winter days are just painful. This is only one of the reasons why I moved to Vancouver. None the less, I had a great time while I was there and on one of the mild days I even got to sneak in a quick 20 minute photoshoot of my step-sister’s adorable family. Here are some favourites from the day:
Three days before Calgary received their first snowfall of the year, I shot the beautiful outdoor wedding of Kelly and Michel. Their beautiful ceremony took place in the gardens of Rouge, a 19th century Heritage house turned into a fine dining restaurant, nestled in the banks of the Bow River. The weather sure was on their side this day as a few days later the huge snowfall caused major damage to the foliage around the city. I’m so happy I was able to capture this amazing day for them.
If you didn’t know already, I just love doing family photoshoots. Especially when a little one is on the way! This beautiful family were just about to welcome their new baby, Daphne, so they asked me to capture this exciting time in their lives. Here are a few of my favourite shots from our afternoon at Jericho Beach in Vancouver:
This summer I had the pleasure of shooting a beautiful wedding with my trusty side-kick, Abby, that took place at Campbell Valley Park in Langley B.C. The wedding was a rustic vintage theme that included a sexy old Chevy truck to perfectly fit the scene. With forested area and a heritage barn surrounding the park, Stephanie and Jeff had a serene environment to suit their amazing day. Here are a collection of our photos from their awesome wedding:
Over the holidays I took a trip to Calgary to shoot a concert at The Rozsa Centre in The University of Calgary. This wasn’t just any concert, but rather a kick-ass high school band recital conducted by my good friend Jesse Heffernan. Jesse and I used to play in a ska-punk band for 4 years called Five Star Affair. He is the the best trumpet player I have ever met and an all around outstanding guy. He now holds the title of music director at Notre Dame High School in Calgary; he always told us he would be conducting his own orchestra. Needless to say I loved watching him in all his glory, and had a blast shooting this fabulous night.
In the summer I did a photoshoot for a great company based out of Revelstoke, B.C. called Somewon Collective, and just last week I did another shoot for them. I really love what their mandate represents and that they care about the quality of clothing they make. I have been wearing and supporting their brand for about 7 years now, and I can assure you, they are solid. They recently sent me some pieces of their fall line and it inspired me to show a different side of their clothing and who might wear it, and how . I took the shoot to my favourite graffitied alley in Vancouver with my good friend/musical genius/drummer wife, Jen Foster, along with an artist in many medias, my talented girlfriend, Luvia Petersen. Here are a few shots from the day; make-sure to check out their links to see more of what they are about:
