Lacey and Matt

    This week – another collection shot at the Stirling Club in Las Vegas. I could probably shoot there every week for a year and not get bored… it’s a big place with lots of great details and decor. I’m going to start with something a little different this time… a very short video; a few seconds of Lacey getting the finishing...

This is from one of several shoots I managed to sneak out for while in Las Vegas for WPPI. If you’re a wedding photographer stuck in the dark and frozen winter of Calgary, then going to the light and warmth of Vegas also carries a pretty strong temptation to bring along a camera and do a little shooting.

And to be selfish, it means there is usually more time for quality photography, instead of trying to squeeze 15 minutes out of 20 family members...

Olivia & Jeremy – The Photobooth Experience!

What a gas the whole photobooth thing was at Olivia & Jeremy’s reception. And it practically rans itself all night. I picked up some hats and feather boas, and the bridesmaids brought along some more goodies, so we had plenty of props to keep everyone in the mood. If you were a guest feel free to use the facebook ‘like’ button as much as you want,...
