We waited for the storm to roll through. We stood under umbrella’s for 30 minutes! But it was worth the wait.
It was too wet for her to walk on grass today - her heels would have sunk right into the ground. We started in the studio - which was perfect as they preferred clean lines to anything fussy. Then we went downtown and did some urban landscapes. Her dress was stunning - the hem had wire in it, which gave it such a nice structure.
I love inclement days - the sky is always the best!
She was very exciting to work with! This outfit is one of those maternity gowns for photo shoots - it was perfect for this shot!
When you go on location you never know what you are going to get. When I left the highway at Viscount I knew it was going to be lovely because there were ever so slight hills. Then I saw the yard - they had water, they had dense and large trees and horses! Good light, some reprieve from the wind and horses! The haze from the forest fires also softens the light.
I love water, who doesn’t? I love shooting through the water - it was a bit windy, which makes it a bit harder as the water is not going straight down, but so much fun!
Perfect light for the perfect grad!
I have always loved this grad portrait shot under the Broadway Bridge. The softness of the light and the water and her dress….
This lovely shot was taken at the pond in my yard.
There is that magic hour (or so) at the end of the day when the light is perfect. I like to play around with flare - with my lens, not in photoshop!
This is a few years old, but it is a favorite of mine. Shot under the Broadway Bridge, the perfect backdrop for a greeting card!
An industrial grate, in the right light, becomes an exotic background for an elegant and timeless grad.
Not every grad wants to where the big dress - this grad session was all about who she really was. We design these books and no two are the same!
Future generations will pour over the “old cars” in the background. I love those kind of details.
We design beautiful graduation albums, no two are the same!
A timeless shot of a grad and his truck!
Sometimes I shoot on location. This was taken at his home. This picture will be endlessly fascinating to his kids and grandkids someday - they will pour over the details like the house he grew up in, the yard that will likely be different in their day, his dog…
A timeless location for grads and weddings!
Ah the prairies! If we shoot on a day other than your grad we can shoot in the evening and hope for that great sky!
When I put this image on Instagram I got hits from all over the world! Such a clean, cool grad portrait taken in my home studio.
