Brittany & Ben’s Canmore Wedding

Brittany & Ben’s wedding was a total blast. And talk about a location! When I was out scouting the location in Canmore I was blown away and on the day of the wedding the moody clouds were just wonderful. Pretty easy to get good shots with a fun couple like them with a back drop like that.

I did Brittany & Ben’s engagement photos so as far as the photo shoot went they pretty much knew the drill. We all (including the wedding party) got along so well. When you get a long with people so well I think it comes through in the photos, not to mention it makes the day that much more fun. I felt like I was shooting the wedding of some old friends of mine. A funny note, the video crew actually thought we were friends outside of the wedding just on how we interacted with each other :). If they lived in Calgary (they live in England) I’m sure we would be friends.

Anyhow, I’m sure that’s enough blabbing out of me, I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. Thanks for a super fun wedding Brittany & Ben!

Kerri & Pat’s Calgary Wedding

Shooting weddings is always fun! However this particular wedding was really something special. First off, not only have I known Kerri for a really long time, but she is family and I guess so it’s Pat now! (nice addition) Even if I had just met Kerri & Pat the wedding would have been just as fun. They had a really great wedding party put together and the whole day was filled with laughs and a super easy going shoot. All wedding are good, but this one was great!

Crystal Ball

So my friend Allen has been shooting a bunch of photos with this crystal ball he got. We were out shooting photos the other night and he pulled out the ball. I had just finished shooting a photo I wanted to get at the location we were at and he was still going at it. Since it was all set up I thought I’d shoot a quick photo with it in the other direction. In the edit I decided to flip my photo upside down so the image in the ball would seem right side up to the viewer. It’s a fun photo and I can see why Allen likes using it in his pictures.

Ice Cream Night

When I set up for this photo I had no intentions of having any people in the shot. I just wanted to get the sign and the building in the frame. I was all set up and waiting for a bunch of cars to go by so I could capture all the lights. These 3 girls walked up and where waiting for the light to change. I was making some adjustments and snapping a few pictures. The girl with the ice cream asked if I was snapping pictures of them, because they could pose. I laughed and said I was just interested in the sign. However, after l got home and looked at the test shots with the girls, I liked that one better than the one with the car lights. So as it turns out I guess I was taking their picture haha.

PS: That’s my buddy Allen in the bottom left of the photo haha. He was shooting his own photo. Actually I ended up shooting a photo in that exact same spot with that ball of his on the rail. I’ll post that picture next.

More City

This is another angle from an evening a couple of weeks ago. I was hopping for a wicked sunset, but just got a bit of dusk haha. This picture is still alright. 🙂

Winter Rocky Mountains

Well it’s still very much winter around here (in Alberta)! But at least it make the mountains look nice. 🙂

A Colorful Street

While I was roaming the streets of Puerto Vallarta one night I passed by this street. I thought all the colorful flags were a nice touch, so I walked to the end of the street and shot this photo. Puerto Vallarta is such a wonderful little city, I hope to go back again soon!

Sunset Over There

I went out on Sunday night hopping to get a shot of the sunset over the Eastside of downtown Calgary. I stopped off at couple different spots before landing on this location. I made my way down the side of this little hill, set my camera up and waited. Unfortunately there were too many clouds over the mountains to the west and not enough over the buildings over the east side of the city. Not all was lost though, because I was able to get this shot and to be honest I am happy things worked out the way they did, because I would never have set out to take this angle and now that I see the finished product I rather like it. 🙂

Stray Cat

I bumped into this stray cat while walking around a random neighbourhood of Puerto Vallarta one day. This cat wasn’t exactly friendly, well he wasn’t not friendly, he just didn’t wander over to me or anything. As I tried to get picture of him he immediately decided to walk off. I kept trying to shoot photos of him as he was leaving and I think you can kind of see it in his face (in the 2nd picture) that he wasn’t to happy about the situation lol. I’m sure he’s laying on a stone path in front of someones house over looking the ocean right now, so I’m sure he got over it. 😉

Nike Destroyer Hike

So my family and I went for a wicked hike just outside of Puerto Vallarta. I shot a little video along the way and thought it was worth sharing here. This is the first video I really used my DJI Osmo gimbal in and I am very happy with the results. I think I’m going to continue to use that gimbal for most of my videos moving forward.

A Night Down This Street

I shot this photos while walking around Puerto Vallarta one night last week. I didn’t have any plan or specific idea of where I was going, but I just started walking around and looked for a good photo opportunity. I wasn’t even going to bother getting a shot of that church down the street, because I’m certain it has been shot to death. However, while I was walking down this street I took a look back and I thought it looked nice in the background. I really like this picture because it is so far off from the streets I see back home. The scene is wonderful and it is exactly how I remember it looking to me in real life.

Waves

My family and I took a little hike out to a place called Colomitos Beach. The beach is about a 15 minute drive outside of the Puerto Vallarta and then you need to either do a 45 minute hike or take a boat. We did the hike and when we hit the beach the boys were loving it!

Skateboarding Around Puerto Vallarta

I spent a couple hours riding around on my skateboard in Puerto Vallarta one day. I cruised down the boardwalk and saw some cool statues, climbed one, took in the sights and saw some dude climb in a cage with a monkey! 😉
