Ice Castles Fashion Shoot in Edmonton

Just as you thought i'd be done with the Ice Castles in Edmonton, I went down and arranged a super last minute shoot with the beautiful model Justina Green and her amazing dress. Everything was very last minute. As much as I should be out shooting I could not resist the urge to visit again because of a little lighting idea I had in my head. As a hindsight, I really wish I'd focus more on the model and shoot more close ups, but the lighting and doing...

Outdoor Photography Session in Edmonton Wheat Field

Today's outdoor photography session takes place in the great Alberta wheat field in Edmonton! What an amazing session! Unlike the Canola field I have recently taken, the wheat field definitely gives a very different cast and tone to the photo. I love how fuzzy and texturized these wheat plants gives! This couple is seriously so silly. I think they kind of forgot about me and went off to do their own thing haha. During the shoot a farm dog got loose and really wanted to play with us. We...

Fashion Photography Session

Amidst all the insanity moving to Calgary, I managed to get some fun shoots in my system. I don't remember how long I have stepped away from shooting at studios indoor! Today I got Jennie and his friend on board at a vacant real estate I got hookups for, and tried out some ideas. Jennie was super excited as usual, with loads of clothing to choose from and put me on the indecisive train. These are the results! hello...

Family Photography Session at Park near Fox Drive

Edmonton family portrait photography session at Whitemud Park near Fox Drive and Alfred H.Savage Centre. [caption id="attachment_2809" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] This Yorkie has never landed his feet on grass and is definitely confused![/caption]   I have been experimenting with a workflow that incorporates color grading but I'm still a pretty big fan of keeping things as original as possible. If I truly like color grading, it'll be a photo that takes at least 30 minutes to work on in photoshop...

Edmonton K-Days Engagement Photography Session

This is the last session i'll post on engagement sessions at KDays in Edmonton!  This couple has got to be my favourite couple of all times. They're sweet and very calm, which gave me lots of time to check my photos and discuss with them during the shoot. They were also super fun and took all my silly ideas to a whole new level! We played and  It was extremely easy to pose them and we had loads of time to work on new ideas and perfect an already...

Merry Go Around Carnival Themed Engagement Photoshoot

So K-Days have began and I have since made lots of plans to shoot a whole lot of things that I envisioned. The day before I worked with a girl and my assistant while planning my route for the couples scheduled to shoot this week. It was seriously a whole lot of work! The crowd and noise was definitely a major issue I had to overcome for my client. I tested this shot in the Merry-Go-Around many times on my own before going for this final product. This...

Carnival Themed Stylized Fashion Shoot at KDays Edmonton

Carnival Themed Stylized Fashion Shoot at KDays Edmonton I have been looking forward to shooting at the Calgary Stampede since last yearsince the photo I took of my friends at the faris wheel became viral on Facebook. Unfortunately I couldn't make it to Calgary in time. So I returned to KDays for this legit photography session fully prepared!  I met up with the lovely Kailyn for this session and plan on doing a full coverage of KDays on different rides. We spent a lot of time exchanging ideas and ended...

West Edmonton Mall Family Portrait Session in Europa Boulevard and Santa Maria

Photographing the busy West Edmonton Mall? Yup! I was doing some commercial work and added a quick little family session with it. I must say, taking photos in the mall is actually a great idea! Europa Boulevard has one of the best lighting and beautiful structures built in under their roof! We were originally walking to Galaxy Land but they were closed, so we decided to venture into the Santa Maria. It was definitely a fun time!  ...

high school senior graduation photographer from Edmonton and Calgary

Prom Dress Photo Session CCIS Ualberta

A photo shoot I did for this beautiful grad dress along with the designer & maker. The idea stemmed because I wanted to look for a big puffy dress or graduation dress to shoot with. Jo has been looking for a shoot and capturing how she looked before she chops a huge length of hair for a charity called Hair Massacure. Knowing Jo is a designer and has made a dress she never got to wear to her high school prom, this photo shoot was definitely inevitable! Quite happy...

Tin foil studio portrait session

Baja Bronze Sherwood Park Bikini Shoot

Another beautiful bikini shoot for Ashley for Baja Bronze Tanning Studio, this time with a twist! This photo shoot session has been in the making for the longest time! Not only did I build the lighting set up (as opposed to the traditional speed light or strobe lights), I have taken much attention to every detail and the background. The shoot was super fun with Ashley as usual, and everyone involved (along with the proud coworkers and owner of Baja Bronze) had a lot of fun! I even...

Cultural Celebration Event

The Great Mughal Gala Pakistani Students’ Association University of Alberta

The Great Mughal Gala presented by Pakistani Students' Association University of Alberta. It was a great night full of talented cultural performances from Edmonton and awesome food! Seriously haven't been updating for a while with everything going on, so I thought i'd send out a quick update on something from last night! I guess my work has been getting more and more complicated, and more and more demanding...

Winter Family Portrait Session

I have anticipated this shoot with the family for a whole month!After 2 extremely cold weekend, Edmonton finally got warmer! Having taught one of the girls from a former teaching job,  we were reconnected after a friend referred them to me. I have to say, I was a bit nervous about this whole thing because I had to put my teacher hat away for a day and order the family around for poses and instruction to get good pictures. Oddly enough, the friend who reconnected us thinks that I...
