Edmonton Winter Family Outdoor Portrait Photography at the Ice Castles

Outdoor Family Photography Session at Ice Castles

I came back to Edmonton to a very warm weather for some outdoor family portraitĀ session at the Ice Castles YEG. What a beautiful family!We started our shoot with a walk around this winter wonderland, and had a nice little chat before getting started. The girls warmed up super fast and we had a lot of fun exploring the castles. I planned a route prior to the shoot, and basically led the family around while asking them to do different tasks. It's kind ofĀ obvious to keep the kids interested...

The temporary Edmonton's attraction Ice Castles at Hawrelak Park

Ice Castles Edmonton & Ice Castles Photography Shooting Tips

I really did contemplate whether driving down from Calgary back home to the Edmonton Ice CastlesĀ was worth it. I mean it was -30C that weekend! But who would have thought IĀ ended up getting the staff there to join me with the photo shoot in this winter wonderland at Hawrelak Park?! Did I also mention I met the master builder there, and they closed the place down later just because of me? (sorry haha) That in itself was definitely worth all the sacrifice I made to go. Come to...

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...

Edmonton family portrait photography session at Whitemud Park near Fox Drive andĀ 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...

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...

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...

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...

Makes me wonder if I should call up some long lost friends from childhood haha. We started off at this beautiful park where I have found while location scouting,...

A great night photographing the banquet event and hosting a photo booth for the University of Alberta Mixed Chorus group last night at the Faculty Club! These people sure knows how to party! Great DJ and music, and great photographers (including myself ;) ) The organizers were super amazing people with amazing food!
