It’s been about a week since the 2019 Boardwalk Ice On Whyte Festival ended so we thought we’d give you a little recap of just what happens at the festival. This year the festival ran from January 24 - February 3. There are many different events and activities throughout the festival, but Ice sculptures created by artists from around the world are the star of the show. This year we followed the sculpting process right from the beginning. It starts with a giant truckload of ice. Each contestant/team gets one skid of ice blocks and has only a few days to sculpt their creations. I was pretty sur ..read more

Michelle & Family - Fall 2018

Well, it took 3 attempts but we finally made it happen! Michelle had booked her family for our Fall Blitz that was to take place on Sunday September 16th, but as that day approached, Edmonton was hit with rain/snow/wind that made an outdoor shoot impossible. With the forecast for Saturday September 22nd looking so much nicer we re-scheduled the Blitz for that day. That day approached and it ended up being worse than the Sunday so we had to end up cancelling our Blitz altogether. Edmonton did warm up in the weeks to follow and we ended up scheduling a session with Michelle on October 20th. Whil ..read more

Julie & Tehl's Wedding

We first met Julie & Tehl back in June of 2017 when Tehl had booked us for a portrait session as a Mother’s Day gift for Julie. Tehl used Facebook to search for a photographer and someone was kind enough to recommend us for the job (always very much appreciated!!). When it came time for these two to get married, they let us know of their engagement by email and added: “Of course we would like you guys to be our photographers!” And we were thrilled to hear it!! This wedding was so unique. It all took place in and around their acreage just south of Leduc. Julie got ready at their house and T ..read more

It rained. It stopped. It poured. It stopped. It REALLY poured. It drizzled. It stopped. It shone! It rained. It stopped. What a roller-coaster of a wedding day for Neil and Mel, and all the while the time was spent with laughs and tears and everything in between. Knowing the weather might throw us for a loop, we made sure to plan a pub stop in the middle of the day so we could grab some food and drink, get out of the down pour and take a breath. This time, the good folks at Biera played host. What an amazing building! So many different nooks and crannies, both inside and out. From there we he ..read more

2018 Spring Portrait Blitz

We held our annual Spring Portrait Blitz in and around the new Norquest building on 108 Street and 102 Avenue this year. The building looks fantastic! The area around the building is also full of nice little spots that allowed us to capture some great images of the groups that took part in the event. The day ended up being quite warm and sunny. Clouds were not to be seen at all. On a regular day, we're all for that. The trouble is that it makes things a little tricky for photography - people with squinting eyes don't seem to make the greatest photos - so we were a little bummed that it was so ..read more

Professional Portrait Blitz

A few weeks ago, we held our very first indoor Blitz. We were very lucky enough to get access to a show home from Kanvi Homes. This home was beautifully staged and looked fantastic! The idea of this Blitz was to provide professional people with photos that were different than the typical plain white background image that so many others seem to have on their LinkedIn/Facebook/websites. This seemed to really attract realtors to the session. Of the 7 that joined us for the day, 6 of them are realtors. We are very happy with the images we were able to capture on the day. Giving everyone several di ..read more

Dave and I had the pleasure of being the photographers for the Boardwalk Ice On Whyte festival this year. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a winter festival with an ice carving competition, ice carving lessons, an ice bar, and many other activities. It was held from January 25 to February 11 in the Whyte Ave area (across the street from El Cortez). The ice carving competition is actually quite intense! The carvers of the 8 sculptures hail from all around the world (Netherlands, France, Mexico, Nepal, Poland, and others) and create unbelievable works of art out of giant slabs of ice. Take a loo ..read more

Fall Portrait Blitz - Team Shaina

Another returning family to the Portrait Blitz. The last time we met up with them though, they didn't have their newest addition! We were so happy to meet the little fella. He did great during the session and it is clear that his big sister loves him.  It is also clear that she loves their dog - but we're glad for that, as always, since their snuggling makes for great photos! Take a look at some of the photos from the most recent session with them ..read more

Our last wedding of the year was a fun one. We spent a beautiful fall day with Natalie and Ryan starting at the Matrix Hotel for the getting ready and the ceremony, then heading to Local on Jasper for a much needed pub stop, where we got some great casual photos of the bridal team, before heading back to the Matrix to dance the night away.  Finding all the spots at Local was fun. Because of the cloudy day, we sat at a long table on the patio and used that as a staging area and after getting a few drinks and nachos (our favourite), we ran around the place finding all the cool spots to feat ..read more
