Douglas Hoyer - Portrait

So I was feeling a little bored and uncreative with my standard everyday job, which don't get me wrong, I love, but sometimes it doesn't offer me the creativity and fun that I sometimes need to keep interested in photography.
This is why I called up, actually, that's a lie.  I Facebooked my friend Doug Hoyer (a very talented young professional music artist, who's music can be listened to here ---> "CLICK ME!") to help me out and do some modeling for me one evening.

Here are a few of my favorite shots of Doug just chillin out and serenading Alex (who was editing on the computer) and I with his beautiful music.

Thanks again Doug!  You're a man of many talents!


Get Involved!

Alex and I are getting involved in this project called Help-Portait.  Watch the video!  It's an amazing concept and perfect for the holidays.  If you want to get involved by helping in any way, please let us know!  Lets spread the love!

Jeff and Kelly Engagement

The day Alex and I shot Jeff and Kelly's engagement, it was super cold out. We shot most of the images inside the Muttart Conservatory, and then headed out to brave the cold at Rexall place to get some photos with Wayne Gretzky - Jeff and Kelly are insane Oilers fans; Alex and I...not so much, but we had a blast taking photos and can't wait to photograph their wedding.
Congrats, and YAY to your engagement!



Dave and Cories Engagement

The nice, warm weather for outdoor photography is coming to a close, but Alex and I squeezed in a couple engagement shoots in the past few weeks before the leaves fell off the trees.  Here's some of our favorites.  And there were lots! It was very hard to narrow it down.
The photos were taken at "Beyond the Blue Sky" which is found 3km north of Darwell on Hwy 765.  I highly recommend anyone who enjoys country style photos to head out there and check it out!  Theresa, the lady that runs the place, is super sweet and even invited us in for some hot chocolate after the shoot to warm us up!  Thanks Theresa, and thanks to Dave and Corie for toughing out the chilly weather!  It was SO worth it!

Props to Alex for this shot!  The horses started walking towards one another and hugging.  While I was busy freaking out over the fact that we had horses that were in love, and people that were in love, (OMG), Alex managed to captured the moment perfectly! Yay to L.O.V.E.

I'm pretty sure we've all seen this rendition somewhere on the web from another photographer...but we just couldn't resist!

Hurray for Dave and Corie.  We're going to have TUNS of fun at your "Hillbilly Ho-Down" wedding!


Tyler and Ambers Wedding

We had a fantastic time shooting Tyler and Ambers wedding in Leduc, and Mill Woods Golf Course.  Thanks to the whole bridal party for being so fun and cooperative, and a huge thanks to our assistant for the day, Colleen Fiddler.  She is entering her first year in Photographic Technology at NAIT and we are quite confident she will do great things when she's done.
Last but most certainly not least, thanks to Tyler and Amber.  You're day went so smooth and it was a pleasure to have been your photographers.  Even though it almost rained on us, everyone stayed calm and it made for some seriously dramatic photos.  Here are some of our favorites!

This next shot is so funny.  Tyler - please don't hate me for sharing this - but apparently there is a photo of this somewhere that was taken when these brothers were just little boys.  It was Tylers brother Mikes idea to take this photo and Tyler, as you can see, was not so thrilled on the idea, but it did make for a great photo, and a great memory!

This one is just like their engagement pic!



The dance was amazing, and even Alex and I took some time out of shooting to join in on the fun.

Congratulations Tyler and Amber in your new life together!


Amber and Tyler Engagement

So its been a while since i've posted anything because i've been super busy, but things are back on track now and progress is being made! YAY!

In addition to getting nice and organized, Alex and I are thrilled to be shooting Amber and Tylers wedding in Leduc this friday. Here's one of their favorite engagement photos shot at Mill Woods Golf Course.


First Blog post!

Hello friends and welcome to the first post on the blog.
I'm new to blogging so please be patient with me as I try to figure this thing out!
Alex and I have lots of work and exciting photos and stories we want to share with you.  Mostly weddings, and an amazing road trip adventure from Montreal to Edmonton!
Please check back soon for updated info and images.

To start off, here is one of our favorite images together.  We took this snapshot on the new Canon 5D MarkII while driving to Edmonton from Calgary.  We wanted to try out the new camera, so we rented it from The Camera Store and completely fell in love with it...BLUE STEEL!
