Shoot, edit, delete, reshoot, edit, FINISHED!

Yep, you guessed! My past week has been filled with photos, accidentally deleting 11,000 photos, trying to recover them, reshooting, reediting, and finally finishing up! 

My dear friends Scott and Elizabeth asked me to shoot their engagement photos, and I was SO beyond excited! I wanted to give them the best photos ever! I got finished editing them and was making space on my hard drive while backing up and accidentally deleted EVERYTHING! I lost 3 sessions, 2 of which I had to reshoot including Scott and Elizabeth’s. Good thing everyone understood and we made plans to fit another session into our busy schedule. I reshoot on Sunday and I wasn’t sure I loved the second session as much as the first because I really loved the first, but after digging my heels into the workflow  I really think the second set turned out better! Maybe it happened for a reason, maybe not, but these photos are pure love! Of course there are some that I can’t get back and am desperately devastated about, but for the most part I really am happy with the second session! Well, here have a look for yourself and tell me what you think!

Family Fun in the Sun!

Hey everyone! On Sunday I had the great opportunity to shoot a lovely family with 2 boys! They were so much fun and so easy going! We went down along the river path by the bow (holy moly is it ever high!!!) and we got some great family fun shots! Here is a few from the session!

Back to basics

Hey all,

So here goes, again! This past year has been a whirl wind for me. With finishing up my BSW starting my business, planning a wedding, moving cities and the list goes on. I have had a hard time getting back to the basics of why I love photography. On Friday of last week ( the 15th) I realized it had been absolutely ages since I had stopped to take pictures for my self – you know sunsets, creatives, and all the fun stuff that people don’ pay me for. I couldn’t believe it! I was shocked that it had been over 9 months since I had taken a random pit stop on the high way or pulled in to some dodgy alleyway.

Well, being me I found myself in a farmers field as I was making this realization and I stooped to take a few photos just as the sun was beginning to set. It was so fabulous! The best thing I have done for myself in a long time. It lead to a whole series of great inspiration and wonderful ideas for future shoots and I found myself in love with my camera all over again. It was such a great feeling. I spent the whole weekend snapping pictures and loving life!

I guess my less was to remember to appreciate the small things and do this for me. I need to continue to do this because I love this, not because someone pays me to do it. So, like the title  – back to basics!

Here are a few of my weekend shots! ImageImageImageImageImage

Hope you all have a great week!

Jessica & Jason Married – Calgary Wedding Photography

ey, it’s me again. Shocked? Well, you shouldn’t be since I am the writer lol. Anywho, this post is all about the fabulous wedding i had the opportunity to photography yesterday (June 9, 2012)

Jessica and Jason are an amazing young couple! The wedding took place at a Douglasdale golf course and the scenery was just stunning! The hall was decked in lovely green and purple decorations and although we had a time war with the impeding rain, the photos will surely turn out great! We headed up to Rotary Park for wedding party shots and of course weddings are always a long day, so naturally the wedding party was hungry, so we decided to make a pit stop in at Peter’s Drive In and grab a milkshake and a few photo since it is a landmark! They turned out awesome and the crowd honked and cheered for the newlyweds!

I was lucky enough to do Jessica and Jason’s engagement photos a few months back, so it is always nice to see both days and create some similarities in the photos. Everyone was so nice and super easy going, which made for a wonderful day. Although we did see some rain and hail the broody sky made for a nice back drop over the cityscape. All in all, an excellent day!

This morning I did some boudoir shoots, so I am look forward to working through those and keeping you all updated on the events of the day!

So, without further delays here are a few sample shots from yesterday’s lovely wedding!
