Say You, a concert tale!

Hey all! On Tuesday I had the chance to go to see one of my favourite bands called Imaginary Cities! They are from Manitoba and are oh so delightful! I saw them last year in Lethbridge at The Slice, when they played with Pepper Rabbit and Hey Ocean, and it was love at first listen! The CD, Temporary Resident has been at the ready ever since! This time I got to see them at Calgary’s the Republik, one of my very favourite venues for a concert!

The openers were Federal Lights and Rah – Rah, but I was filled with excitement to hear the lovely voices of Imaginary Cities. They are the kind of band that when they sing, you can actually feel the emotions they put into developing the song and the presence just rings through your body. You actually believe the lead singer is feeling love or heartbreak as she sings.

This was the first time I dared to bring my camera to a concert and try and snap a few pics. I was so very exited and I feel like I got a few great one! You can see some of the images below! I am so excited with how they have turned out!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my post! I encourage you to go and check out this wonderful Canadian band and I hope you love them as much as I do!

Beer and Pizza? Yes Please!

Hey all!

Today I am writing about the awesome opportunity that I had on Friday June 22, 2012. I had the great pleasure of being the photographer for the Minhas Micro Brewery of  Calgary’s Grand Opening Event! Now, some of you might know that I got to photograph the Minhas family at their Baby shower a few weeks back and I can’t tell you enough what an amazing group of people they are!

The event was bustelling with excitement, chatter, and anticipation as people flooded in with hopes of test the Minhas families newest craft beers and local fresh pizzas, fries and onion rings ( all cooked with beer and ingredients brought from within 100km). The food was delightful and the company was grand. Everyone was in for a treat. So here are a few shots from the great event! Hopefully one day you will get a chance to come for a visit!

Have a lovely night!

To be 16 again | Calgary Event Photographer

Hello all, it is me again!

Ahh 16, what a tender age! Full of drama excitement, knowing everything, passion, bullying, and getting out of high school alive. I must admit, I AM SO GLAD I AM PAST THAT, like 10 years ago!!

On the up side, I had the pleasure of photographing Miss. Daniela’s sweet 16 party. What an amazing, kind, and genuine young lady! All of this was a big surprise to her and boy was she surprised when her parents had a limo, her best girlfriends, and a hall booked out for a party.

We went out for some fun group shots and then off to the hall for the dance! All of the young ladies were delightful and so sweet! I was so lucky to be surrounded by a family full of love and compassion@ Daniela’s grandparents even made the party all the way from Peru!

I was so lucky to get a chance to photograph a family with so much love to give, it kind of reminds me about what is really important in life. So, I am lucky to say that I had such a great chance to meet so many amazing people!

Here are a few fun pictures from the evening!
