2017 was a great year for us as we had the opportunity to photograph so many amazing weddings all around Calgary and the surrounding areas. We had many special opportunities as we photographed large scale weddings at the Banff Springs Hotel and took a helicopter to capture photos atop a mountain in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Not every wedding went off perfectly as we were caught in a sudden downpour on St. Island as we photographed the newly married couple, however we quickly adapted and captured some amazing photographs in a parkade that we knew of....yes you read that right...a parkade.
We met some amazing new people and got to spend wedding days with existing friends. We reconnected with some of our favorite vendors and once again I was shown why I absolutely love all the amazing photographers that I am so fortunate to work with....Florian, Erin, Nathalie, Taylor, and Mike....you guys are absolute rockstars and I am continually amazed by your talents and am so fortunate to consider you all friends.
Once again we had photo booths set-up for some large Christmas parties and for a corporate event were able to design and build an automated Photobooth which allowed guests to get some great photographs of themselves. We were also fortunate to be invited back once again to photograph the Calgary Firefighters Underprivileged Children's Party, with over 4000 people in attendance, it is a humbling and rewarding experience to get to participate in.
With all that has happened in 2017 we are looking forward to what is already looking to be a busy 2018 photography season. We are looking forward to working with so many great new people that we have met over the past number of months as we prepare for this year's wedding season. We are also excited to announce that we will be developing a new composite photography service that we will be offering in the next couple months. With this we will be able to take a photograph of a person taking part in their favorite hobby, a high school football player for instance, then using specialized software, combine the photo with others we have to make it appear they are standing in a sold-out football stadium. We will have a variety of backplates that we can adjust to make each photo specific to the individual person. Whether it is playing a major soccer match, climbing a mountain, or being immersed in you favorite book, we will be able to create an individualized photo for you.
In the coming months, we will be asking for a few people who would allow us to photograph them to create our new portfolio and be featured in our new photography line. We are super excited about this endeavour and are looking forward to bringing it forward.
We thank everyone for their continued support of us and we look forward to what will be an exciting year moving forward.
