Rugby Wedding: Lindsay & Vinny

Clearly Lindsay and Vinny both love Rugby! Oh and their cute dog, who played a big part in their wedding. When I first met with Lindsay and Vinny they told me they wanted to do some type of Ruby wedding shots and right away I was excited, because I had never done any wedding shots like that and I knew it would be fun. When wedding time came around it wasn’t often I didn’t see that ruby ball kicking around and their dog was definitely there for everything too. Lindsay and Vinny were super fun and easy to work with. Their wedding party and parents were a joy to be around and I think we all had a wonderful time together!

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: The two people who caught the bouquet and garter belt(it was on the ball) are a couple. 🙂

Thanks for a fun wedding Lindsay & Vinny!

 

Abandoned Lakefront

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-28mm-1-8A friend of mine took me out to this abandoned farm to shoot some photos. The place was pretty spectacular and we got a lot of good pictures there. This building was especially interesting to me, because when they built it the owners must have been so happy to have this nice structure built right by the lake. I bet they never thought in a million years it would ever come to this. Life is crazy, better use it all up like it’s gonna end up like this.

Lake House Wedding: Sunyoung & Santi

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-24-70mm-f2-8-l-5d-mark-iiiAnytime I book a wedding in late October or early November in Calgary I worry about how the weather will be. Usually this time of year we are walking around in snow! Sunyoung and Santi’s November wedding definitely had me concerned about what kind of weather we were going to be dealing with. Lucky for us, the weather was great! Well, at first it was decent, as in not snowing or cold. Since the ceremony was indoors the overcast sky didn’t really bother me.

Of course the ceremony went wonderful and since this was a day wedding we had an amazing lunch at the Lake House at Lake Bonavista. As usual I was moving around the venue shooting my photos, all while keeping my eye on the windows to see how the skies were looking. Once it was time for us to leave the venue to our photo shoot the skies had yet to clear up. Overcast can be a wonderful friend while shooting wedding photos, but some blue sky and sun is always nice too. Either way I’ll make it work, but then I saw a few breaks in the sky and had my fingers crossed for a bit of sun.

As luck would have it, about 20 minutes into our photo shoot the sun decided to make an appearance and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! We had just finished setting up by the river and wa-la, the sun! I couldn’t have been happier and I am sure Sunyoung & Santi feel the same way.

Anytown USA

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4This is just some really country looking flower shop’s store front I was walking by in Port Townsend, WA one day. The idea of Anytown USA popped into my head when I saw the store, so I grabbed a quick shot. If I was going to be putting together a country cabin, this is a store I’d stop by to pick up some decorating items :).

rob moses exif data canon 5d 24-70mm 2.8I shot this photo down on the east side of Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 2012. The photo never made it up here back then for some reason, so I thought better late than never ;). I took this picture with my trusty old original Canon 5D (on its 2nd shutter) and 24-70mm f/2.8 L. It was a wonderful set up back then and I still believe it to be a capable set up today.

Twin Sheds

Canon EOS Rebel T3i & EF 50mm f:1.8 mark i 1 original exif data

I was driving in the country one day when I zipped by these random sheds in this field. I kept on driving a little ways when I decided it might make a good picture. A quick stop and U-turn later I was walking through these strange bushes trying not get my shoes dirty haha. The sheds might not be identical twins, but they are close enough ;).

Gotta Love The Rockies

This shot is clearly not a recent one! haha. This landscape currently sits under heaps of snow. I shot this one this past summer about 30 minutes south of the city of Calgary. I’m not big on landscape, but I could look at this view for quite some time :).

Kananaskis Country

I took a drive an hour west of the city this weekend to a little place known as Kananaskis Country. There really isn’t much out there, but the forest, mountains and whatever nature has to offer. Since I live right in the city, from time to time a trip to a remote place like Kananaskis is exactly what I need. The weather was kind of wired the day I was there. In the photo it was raining behind the first mountain and sunny where I shot the photo from. The weather situation made for a dramatic picture.

Alberta Canada Landscape

Yesterday my friend Dusty and I took a little trip south of the city into the Alberta countryside to shoot some landscape photography. We came to the end of one road and saw a few vehicles parked and one of them was occupied. We went and talked to the guy in his truck and asked him if there was a trail that would lead us to a river we knew to be close by (via google maps). He informed us of a trial that would lead us there about 30 minuets into the woods, however the trail was rather wet and marshy. He showed us his muddy pants and said our sneakers probably wouldn’t do. However, we decided we might give it a go anyhow. As we started pulling out our camera gear he asked us if we had any bear mace, of course we did not. He then told us that the bears are what he was looking for and that there was a massive grizzly the area. He then showed us huge paw print he saw and took a picture with on his phone. So with this new valuable knowledge and the ringing of gun shots in the forest we decided we might be a little ill prepared for such a journey haha. So instead we drove about a minute up the road, pulled over and I shot this photo :).

Morning Moon

I took this picture about a week ago in Castlegar British Columbia. I was out for a little morning walk and randomly stopped to take this picture. It was only until I started to do a little edit on the photo till I noticed a little morning moon in the photo :). It’s not easy to spot in this small picture, but in the large version it’s easy to see.

Old Country Bridge

I was out shooting a house in a small town called Cochrane yesterday. The town is about 20 minutes outside of the city and is a nice little community from what I saw. I had shot houses in this community before and I always noticed this old bridge from the top of a large hill as your driving in.  For no apparent reasons, I felt today was the day I would get a picture of this bridge. When I found the bridge, I of course drove over it just to drive over it haha, but the funny thing about this bridge is it really leads to no where. On the other side of the river is a privet road and what looks to be a farm. Pretty nice bridge for a couple of luck people I’d say :).

Run For It!

As you may know from my last post I was out on a little country drive on Friday. While I was driving I noticed a group of Elk & Deers on the side of the road up a hill, however they were to far to get a good picture, since the longest focal length lens I had on me was a Canon 70-300mm DO IS. Then about 50 yards down the road on the other side I noticed another group of Elk/Deer grazing a lot closer and to top it off there was a place for me to pull over! I quickly pulled in and grabbed my camera which was sitting on the seat next to me, jumped out and started shooting. I started whistling at them in the hopes to get a little action out of them. One of the deer didn’t like the whistling much at all and started running for it! The next thing I knew they were all bouncing across the field toward the fence, and once they got there they just started leaping over it like it was nothing! Amazing, to say the least. I grabbed a few more shots as they ran up the hill to joint their pals and then I hopped back in my car and drove back to the city. Sometimes living in Canada aint all that bad ;).

A Country Landscape

Being a city guy, I rarely find my self in a situation to shoot a proper landscape photo. However, the other day I was out scouting some locations to shoot some photos of particular rural neighbourhood on the edge of the city limits. While on my scouting mission I noticed this old wagon sitting near the entry of a ranch. At first I thought I’d come back another time, but as I was leaving I realized the chance of me actually driving all the way back to that location again for a landscape photo was rather unlikely, so I went back and here you go ;).
