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 with how it turned out. Hopefully I’ll get to shoot with her again when her hair gets chopped off  =)

Don’t you just love her long dark hair? If it wasn’t for a cause, i’d do anything to stop her from chopping her hair xD

Absolutely love the simplicity of it! The benches at the University of Alberta are definitely something!

University Dance Club Starlight Ball

Had a chance to photograph the annual Starlight Ball presented by Edmonton’s UADC (University of Alberta Dance Club). This club is probably Edmonton’s next best secret to learn ball room dancing in. It offers an extensive range of classes and activities. Regardless of your dancing ability. The instructors are volunteer based but all trained by competitive dancers in the scene. These guys worked very hard to get this night going, and i’m definitely bringing my game up a notch when it comes to these events! 

I got to meet some super cool people and even learned a few moves myself!! This is probably one of the best activity to get into at a cold Alberta winter! The photo booth was so much fun! These people seriously know how to pose! We had so much fun playing around and even tried out some floating levitation photos haha. See if you can spot anything unusual!

Dinner was at the Polish Hall close to downtown Edmonton. It was a yummy five course meal with awesome live music by a very talented harp player.

Fall Portrait Session at St-Albert Ravine

Another Fall photo shoot and this time at the beautiful ravine of St-Albert just 20 minutes outside of Edmonton. The leaves are fresh and the weather is great, got myself a very hard to handle 85mm lens from Vistek rental, and Dani and I are ready for some photo fun! St-Albert is a small town known for their huge green house store called Hole’s but very little people know  that St-Albert is fall of beautiful ravines and parks! I was lucky to know a friend who I play music with and lives in St-Albert, so she knows all the hidden gems of St-Albert.

This photo shoot was all fun, but there was a small episode… With all the growing gears comes growing responsibility and organization skills! I’ve recently struggled with what choice of weapon to bring to each photo shoot especially weekends when I have a full day of chores and errands to run. So today, I finally hit an oopsies. I dropped my keys at the back of my car and locked myself out of my own car!!!! I was super lucky to have my friend Virginia come out personally and called the toll truck company and break into my car in order to return to Edmonton in time after the photo shoot! What an embarrassing day in front of these beautiful ladies. =/

Here are the pictures in batch, I have the full sized photos at the end. Enjoy!

Edmonton Wedding Photo Booth

F & C’s Wedding Photo Booth and Reception

I was asked to help out for a photo booth at F & C’s wedding, and I got to sneak in a few photos during the reception partyas well! It was truly an amazing night at F & C’s wedding!I think it was obvious how much fun was there at the wedding, it was virtually effortless to get people to smile for me in front of the camera or pose for a “let’s go crazy” and “hurray” shot, because people were simply doing that, and they were proud to be celebrating the coming together of these two amazing people!

F & C are actually both friends of mine who has moved to another city for work and school, and I knew they have hired a professional photographer to be at their wedding. F & C are both very passionate people who has a heart for people, and for God. There are loads of people who has been touched by their lives, and this wedding consisted of people who came from different parts of the world. Anyway It’s getting really late so I should get to bed… I wish you two all the best!

Another huge thank you to people behind the scene that made this wedding a blast and made my job so much smoother amidst all the sudden changes and chaotic situations that threatened my shooting space xD  [more photos/content will be updated soon…]

Banff Johnston Canyon Lower Trail

We scheduled this trip right when the great Alberta flood hit and so we had to cancel until they reopen again. Water wasn’t clear like it should, but we definitely got to see some really cool new things many people may not be able to witness! We arrived really late so we only had time to walk the shorter lower trail.Johnston Canyon Johnston Canyon Trail Banff Lake Luise Alberta Canada  02Johnston Canyon Trail Banff Lake Luise Alberta Canada
