As part of our kickoff to The World Is Our Studio, we got a group of people together to go to Mount Herman. First on the docket was Selenne, who rocked the alpine flowers.
So, I’ve been pestering Jessica to do a shoot for a while. And it’s not like we’ve got loads of time here in which to shoot, because one of these days that baby growin’ on the inside is going to want to come out, and then it will be too late…
We were playing with some concepts here, just for fun. Let me know what you think works or doesn’t in the comments.
Here are some more shots. Click on the thumbnails to see them larger.
Here’s a bunch more photos from Merv and Michelle’s wedding, now in a convenient slideshow form. The wedding, as I probably mentioned before was out at Tupper Hall east of Dawson Creek, which was mostly lit by icicle lights. I love icicle lights and christmas lights as backgrounds for pictures, so I took a lot of shots indoors, which is a bit unusual for me, as I prefer the out of doors. Still it was a nice little wedding with lots of laughs and great friends.
This was a bit of a last minute affair. Not for Michelle and Merv, that is, but for me. I was contacted about a month before the wedding to see if I could come and photograph the wedding “as a gift,” said Tarla, Michelle’s daughter.
The wedding was to be held at Tupper Hall, at Swan Lake, and it was going to be a very brief, casual affair on a Friday evening. I didn’t know how casual until someone called out to Michelle, as she was walking down the aisle unaccompanied by music: “Hey, did you want me to hum something?”
The small crowd of friends and family laughed, as did the happy couple. Very casual, very friendly.
Jana and Koji are getting married in Grande Prairie. Which, you know, you might expect considering that’s where they live.
But they came out to Tumbler Ridge (aka, Grande Prairie’s back yard), for their engagement shoot. We went to Babcock Falls, then up onto Mount Babcock for one of the nicest evenings of the year.
That’s for all my Amurican friends who read this blog. These photos were taken on Canada Day. Actually, they were taken Canada Day Eve, because for some reason, fireworks were a day early this year.
This is Katie and her cousin who you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of over the next month or two, because they’ve volunteered to be models, “anytime.”
Ah, the foolishness of youth.
This was not a planned shoot in the sense that we had arranged to go out and take pictures. On the other hand, there has been a half dozen or so killer sunsets, and each one that goes by without me having a person to photograph breaks my heart.
And I’ve been trying to get a grad in full regalia in front of a sunset for … wow, longer than I care mention.
But, back to the unplanned grad shoot. I was at the Tumbler Ridge grad with my portable studio taking shots of anyone who wanted photographs. The dance had started, and most of the parents had cleared out, so I grabbed my portable flash on a stick, and went down to take pictures of the teens dancing.
I had barely done two test shots when I looked out the door and saw the sky was aflame. And the door opens away from the sunset, so I knew that what was happening on the other side was going to be even more spectacular. I grabbed my flash, and grabbed the closest grad I could, and we ran out to get some shots.
