Month: May 2008

Richard and Selene

Selene was my assistant a couple years ago, and, as a thank you, I shot her wedding. As an assistant, I wound up taking pictures of her when there was no clients to shoot, and, as a result, she got fairly used to me pointing a camera at her. One of the most relaxed couples I have had the chance to shoot. As you might expect, they’re out of Tumbler Ridge, BC, though they’ve moved a couple times in the few months they’ve been married. The wedding happened at the Tumbler Ridge Pentecostal Church, while the formals were taken down at the Tumbler Ridge Golf and Country Club.

Baby Sarah

Sarah was born a couple months premature, and was the tiniest baby you ever did see. Her father, on the other hand, is one of the biggest men you’d ever run across, and so I figured I’d take some photos emphasizing the contrast. All went well until baby Sarah pooped on dad, who went scurrying off to the shower. Baby Sarah lives with her parents here in Tumbler Ridge, BC.

It was a buggy day last summer when I took Alyssa to a rough-hewn structure near the side of the highway that I had passed and wanted to get some photos at. Alyssa is from Tumbler Ridge, but moved to Dawson Creek, BC a couple years ago. She comes back frequently to visit her friends. The building turned out to not be as photogenic as I was hoping, but Alyssa more than made up for it.  Here are some images from that set; she has recovered from all the mosquito bites quite nicely, thank you. Alyssa is graduating this year, and I’m going to be taking more pictures of her in a few weeks. She’s got this great orange grad dress that looks amazing on her.


J and N

Here’s an engagement shoot from last fall; I’m shooting the wedding this weekend. These two are a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to it. They’re getting married at the Charlie Lake Community Church, which is the church my mom attends in Charlie Lake (which is just north of Fort St. John, BC), and, if I have a few moments, I can stop in and visit her, which is always nice. (Assuming, of course, that she is back from her trip across Western Canada by then.)

Hi all. 

It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally got something up on the interweb.

I am going to be tweaking things as time goes on; feel free to leave suggestions in the comments, or email me (trent) at

While I was down in Medicine Hat, Alberta, me and a friend who is also a photographer went out on a model shoot with a pair of gorgeous models. It was kinda cold and windy and starting to rain, so we didn’t get to stay out as long as we liked, but I got some great photos of the two of them. Here’s the first bunch of Aimee. Expect some of Steph when I get some time to work on them. Next week maybe. Life is pretty hectic right now.
