Saskatoon Fashion Shoot – A Local Business Collaboration

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to collaborate with three other Saskatoon businesses – Mint Fashion Company, Chop Chop Salon, and Lifetime Productions. None of us had worked together before, but we hoped that the four of us could leverage each of our specialities to make some stunning photographs. Mint Fashion Company was kind enough to provide three outfits for Katrina Ham of Lifetime Productions to model, while Jennilee Cardinal-Schultz and Amanda Dreis from Chop Chop Salon styled her hair and worked their magic with the make-up.

Even though it was the end of February, I was really hoping to do the shoot outside. We were getting unusually mild temperatures during the lead-up to the shoot, but when the day finally arrived things had returned to normal and the great outdoors was no longer an option. I knew that some of the newly renovated buildings at the University of Saskatchewan were promising for indoor locations so just as a precaution I had scouted the area a few weeks prior.

Fortunately it was February break so there was barely anyone at the University. This gave Katrina and I the luxury of just taking our time and using each location to its fullest. We spent a couple hours together wandering around campus taking advantage of the bountiful light flowing into so many different areas.

I must say that it was a pleasure working with these other local companies. All of them were class acts and I would highly recommend stopping in and connecting with them – you won’t be disappointed. I hope you enjoy the photographs that I captured.

Christa & Luke are Engaged

Christa and Luke are getting married this summer in Melfort, Saskatchewan and they contacted me because they were interested in having some engagement photos made. We were getting close to Spring so I was hoping that we would be able to make it my first outdoor shoot of the season. But if you know anything about Saskatchewan winters, it rarely cooperates. This time was no exception.

Since we weren’t about to let a little cold weather get in the way of us having a good time, we found a handful of great locations around the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon to shoot. Making use of the many large windows around campus, there was plenty of soft natural light for us to have fun with.

The two of them were hoping to get a few shots downtown along the river since that was where Luke proposed to Christa, so we wrapped up at the University and decided to brave the frigid temperatures. I’m glad we decided to make the effort because now they have some photographs that they really had their heart set on getting.

Here are some of my favourite photographs from the afternoon, and be sure to also check out their high definition slideshow.

Rachel and Jeffrey

Rachel and Jeff live in Montreal. The last time they were in Saskatoon was this past fall and they were expecting their first child. Rachel wanted to capture this moment in their life, but didn’t want maternity photos. She just wanted to have some photographs made of her and Jeffrey just having fun.

A nice park by the river seemed like a good place to spend some time with them. It was late in the day and the sun was low in the sky creating a nice warm light. It took a little while for Rachel to get over her case of the giggles, but they did make for some great photos. I was able to also get some nice romantic shots of them as well.

A few months later Rachel and Jeffrey welcomed their daughter Ginny into the world, and hopefully I will get the opportunity to get the three of them together for some photos. Here are some of my favourite photographs from the evening, and be sure to also check out their high definition slideshow.

Kelly & Byron are Married

When I met Kelly and Byron in April I knew that I wanted to shoot their wedding. After only chatting with them for about thirty minutes I knew that they were genuinely nice people who truly loved each other. I got to know them a little better that summer when we spent an evening creating some awesome engagement photos. Even though their wedding was still a few months away the three of us knew that time would fly by, and the big day would be upon us.

As October 9th approached the unpredictable Saskatchewan weather kept everybody guessing. A couple hot days here, and a few chilly days there. Fortunately for the wedding day the weather was fabulous. Even though everything was looking like it was going to perfect there was one thing that was making me nervous. It had nothing to actually do with the wedding, but had everything to do with my personal life. If you follow me on any social network you know that my wife and I recently had a baby – a baby that was due on October 9th. I knew the chance of the baby actually arriving on this day was slim, and the fact that I was only covering about three hours of the wedding day made it even slimmer. It didn’t matter. I was still nervous.

I was scheduled to arrive at the University of Saskatchewan Faculty Club in Saskatoon about an hour before the ceremony to capture some shots of the bride and groom. I felt a lot calmer knowing that my wife hadn’t yet gone into labour when I left the house. At that point I was pretty confident that it was not going to be that day, allowing me to just focus on the wedding.

About seventy guests came to see Kelly and Byron tie the knot. The ceremony went exactly as planned and before we knew it they were married. Right after the ceremony the three of us went out around the university to capture some of the first photographs of them as man and wife. Even though we only had an hour to get the shots we wanted we didn’t feel rushed at all. We all just relaxed and had a good time together creating some photographs to document their first day as a married couple.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the the day. Be sure to also check out the high definition slideshow to see even more images from the wedding.

Rene, Clint, Sadie, and Tucker

Clint contacted me a couple of months ago telling me that he and his wife Rene were interested in having some photos taken of themselves, and their two dogs. We scheduled the shoot for a nice autumn evening at a park in Saskatoon hoping to capture some of the splendid colours that come with the season.

I don’t regularly shoot animals so I knew it would be a fun exercise to photograph Sadie and Tucker. The park we were at is home to a Frisbee golf course which brought on an unexpected challenge – the dogs were more interested in chasing the Frisbees than posing for photos. Clint and Rene however were able to distract Sadie and Tucker long enough so that I could get some great photos of the two of them.

After giving all of our attention to the two dogs it was now time to focus on Clint and Rene. They were married just over a year ago so this was almost like a celebration of their one year anniversary. We were so lucky to get a gorgeous evening in the middle of October knowing full well that we could have been dealing with a Saskatchewan snowstorm at this time of year.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the shoot. Be sure to also check out the high definition slideshow to see even more images of the two of them.
