While Canadian winters are truly beautiful they aren’t always the most pleasant. When Stephanie & Tyler told us they wanted to hold off their engagement session until we got fresh snow I think we all felt just a little bit more Canadian. Stephanie & Tyler braved the cold with us and shot a session that feels more Canadian than anything we have done before. Snowshoes, mittens, hot chocolate, and a tepee in the woods! It all sounds like a bit much until you see how sweet these two are together. We all toughed out the cold, with hot baths for all as soon as we returned home! We are super excited for Stephanie & Tyler’s wedding this summer…this hot, warm, summer. Enjoy!
With things are really ramping up for the coming wedding season it is always nice to have the opportunity to shoot something different. While headshots are a vital part of a brand and identity I am constantly disappointed with the number of very dated headshots you see out there. I personally believe professional photos that portray your character or your brand shouldn’t look like the photos you got in grade two 😉 (I am picturing canvas backgrounds and the clothes your mom made you wear!) I was over joyed when everyone looking for headshots had something a little different in mind. They wanted photos with context, and photos that showed their personality, photos that matched their brand.
I have included some info and links below so you can check them out for yourselves!
Andrea Lessard is creating company called “Click” that specializes in translation and cross cultural communication. Her goal is to approach translation as being about communicating, connecting two parties and facilitating their interactions and success. In her words, “My company is not about words, as people often think when they hear “translation”, it is about developing relationships: 1) facilitating relationships between my clients and their prospects (or other party), and 2) building and fostering good, long-term relationships with clients, to work as partners rather than customers.
Ryan Smith is a real estate agent for Community Partners Inc. Their boutique brokerage takes a whole new approach to real estate. Rather than focusing solely in the sale and purchase of property they build a relationship with their clients keeping them informed on everything they need to know about their investment not only for purchase and sale, but also during ownership of their home. They liken themselves to the financial advisors of real estate, and pride themselves on their hands on approach to reality. We actually met Ryan because we are shooting his wedding this summer! Watch for their engagement session (and super cute puppy – Kohler) on the blog soon!

That’s it for now, more engagements and weddings coming soon!
Two words. Ninja. Kicks.
We knew we’d get along with these two when: A) we hit it off over beers at Craft at their booking consultation B)they wanted to tool around 17th Ave on a Sunday afternoon for their engagement photos C) they excel at Ninja kicks (see below) and D) we finished their engagement session off at National. Andrew and I would have been doing Ninja kicks all the way down 17th Ave anyway, so for us this was a normal Sunday afternoon.
Love these two so much! Can’t wait to see Candace ninja kick her way down the aisle this September!
Hiya (NINJA KICK)!
xoxo Erin and Andrew
