Wedding days almost feel like a computer hack or cheat code for photographers like myself. I love taking photos that really mean something to the people in them. Under normal circumstances that can be a challenging thing to do, but when you're given the privilege of photographing someones wedding, taking meaningful photos for that couple and their family and friends becomes easy.
While my fashion work overlaps with my commercial work, I love working with models to develop and expand their portfolio so they can book more commercial shoots. I have a studio set up located on an acreage just outside the city limits for the city of Calgary where I can shoot basically any style or look you could want for your portfolio. I also have a collection of battery powered strobes and a variety of umbrellas and softboxs that can be used for location shoots.
One of the reasons I love shooting weddings as much as I do is because I love taking photos that are going to mean something my clients for the rest of their lives. Family Photoshoots fall into the exact same line of thought for me. I know that photos of my own family are getting more and more precious to me as time goes by, and I like the idea that the photos I take for my clients could one day be looked at the same way.
