The Lara Family

It was Connie’s birthday, and her daughter-in-law Alison told me that she hadn’t had her photo taken in over twenty five years. The whole family decided that family photos would be the perfect gift. I met the Laras at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon a few weeks ago. This seemed like a good location for the shoot since Connie and Cesar’s two sons and their wives had attended the UofS at one time or another.

We wandered throughout the campus and stopped to make some photographs as we found interesting locations. And I can safely say that this is the first time a shoot has ever erupted into a Kung Fu match. I had a great time with Connie and Cesar, Patrick and Ashlee, and Gerald and Alison on that Sunday afternoon. It’s always a pleasure to photograph a great family in an informal setting.

Here are some of my favourite shots from the afternoon.
























Christy & Harley Married in Saskatoon

Christy and Harley really wanted a laid back wedding. They saw this as an opportunity to have a great time with their good friends and family. Their wedding was at Boffins Club at Innovation Place in Saskatoon. I met them at the gardens a few hours before their ceremony and reception so we could make some photographs together. The weather couldn’t decide if it was going to rain or not, but we managed to get through it completely dry.

The festivities inside Boffins Club were super relaxed, and everyone had a great time mingling and snacking. Christy and Harley got in lots of visiting before they kicked off the ceremony. The speeches that followed really showed just how much their family and friends care for them. I’m glad I had the opportunity to be part of their celebration.

Here’s what their wedding day looked like. Also be sure to check out their high definition slideshow.
