Sunburst City

I’m a sucker for a good sunburst and I’ll try to grab one whenever I can. The thing I really love about these pictures is that sunburst is the reflection of the sun off of a pretty cool looking building! If your a city guy (or girl) like me, then that’s what it’s all about ;).

Oh ya, and that dude that’s practicing his karate moves is hilarious! 🤣

Stacey & Benn Back Then

These photos are of Stacey and Benn and I shot them last month. Obviously the lovely couple has already received their photos, but I just couldn’t find the time to get them up here. Anyhow, I had such a good time with these two and even though the weather was being super crazy the night we shot photos everyone still had fun and we got some good shots. The light was constantly changing and the wind was defiantly blowing and that makes for a some what difficult shoot. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, I fun times of the shoot were! 🙂

That Sunset

Canon FD 50mm 1.2 shot @f/16

I shot this photo on Saturday night. The sunset was amazing, but there was a lot of parking lot in the middle of the picture that I didn’t like. I thought I’d hop in there and maybe make the picture a little more interesting. Not to mention giving me a change to show off my cool new Cultural Blends hoodie.😜

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!

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!

 

Morning Sun

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I just caught the sun peaking over this massive mountain in Banff. Whenever I think of “The Rockies”, it’s a mountain exactly like this that comes to mind. Fun to catch it with the warm sun coming into the picture.

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.

All photos shot with a Canon 5D mark iii, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 & 1 580EXii Speedlite

Silver Springs Wedding: Ashley & Dustin

The leaves and grass got green just in time for this wedding. The sun also came out right when it needed too! Sure the harsh light provides its own problems for taking pictures, but the ambiance and over all feeling the emerging afternoon sun brought with it was well wroth the trade off.

This was a shorter wedding for me, as I didn’t meet up with the bride or groom before I got to the venue. I showed up a little early to grab a few shots of the set up. When Ashley arrived, I got a few shots of her and a few other people putting the finishing touches on their outfits. The ceremony started shortly after their arrival and the show was on. The formal shots were the fastest I have ever done (by a long shot). I’d say we had about 15 minutes to get things done! LOL, Which is crazy! After the words fastest photo shoot, we went back in for some dancing and partying. This wedding was peddle to the metal from the start and it was a good one! 🙂

Flames Burning The Canucks

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm 1.8 ~ Settings: f/14 – 1/125th – ISO 400

If you’re a hockey fan than you probably know the Calgary Flames have made the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs! And if your from Calgary, you know we are playing our arch rivals the Vancouver Canucks in the first round. So to kick things off right around here I had to let it be known how it’s going down. We’ll be burning those bastards up from the first puck drop! 😀

Now about the photo. I had my Canon 6D set up on a tripod and triggered the camera with my Canon RC-1 remote. I had another tripod to camera left with a Canon 580EX ii pointing at me. Since I am originally from Vancouver, I had a jersey collecting dust in my closet. I didn’t actually burn the jersey though, for 2 reasons. One, I’m from Vancouver and still like that jersey haha. And 2, it was really windy and even if I could get the jersey to burn the flames wouldn’t have gone straight up and effect wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic. After I did the initial edit of the photo I photoshopped in the flames burning the jersey.

I expect to take a lot of flack from all my Vancouver friends and family over this picture haha. But I’ve been in Calgary for 3 years now and I started backing up this team the day I got here. As soon as that first hockey season started 3 years ago I was a straight up traitor Calgary Flame. For me it’s all about the home team and this is my home now. GO FLAMES!

A Port Townsend Sunset

If you have never been to Port Townsend, Washington you should start planning your trip as soon as possible. Port Townsend is a wonderful little town and lives up to the hype that anyone who has been there can give it. I shot this photo right after I enjoyed a wonderful dinner a restaurant right behind where I took this picture from. It is rather easy to take a good picture in Port Townsend, because the whole town is beautiful.

Bokeh on the Bridge

I went for a little walk across the Centre Street Bridge with my son Cammy yesterday evening. It was a beautiful evening and we had a fun time. Of course I was snapping photos a long the way and theses are a few of the ones I took.

Sunset Over Calgary

I shot this on Tuesday evening off an overpass near my house. The previous day I was driving over said overpass at the exact same time I took this picture. As I crossed the overpass I saw right away what a great shot it could be, so I noted the time and came back the next day. The photo is not exactly how I had pictured it in my mind, but it’s pretty close :).

Also, sometimes I just can’t wait to get a picture out there and it might hit Twitter a day a head of here haha. Now I’m not saying go there instead of here, because this is where all the good stuff is haha ;). Just go there if you want to view a shot a little bigger.

A Sunny Castlegar Morning

I shot this photo one morning while on a little walk by the river in Castlegar, BC Canada. One of the things I really love about British Columbia is that is always so green. It never quite get’s that green around Calgary and I miss that.
