Why Hire a Professional Photographer?

Posted by on in Uncategorized

professional-photographer-kelowna-bc
Congratulations on your big day! We know you will work hard to make everything perfect.  From the hair to the dress to the flowers to the linens – why wouldn’t you want to capture the day beautifully? With the great technology we have now, it seems like everyone is a photographer.  A little Photoshop goes a long way to correct a blemish or whiten those teeth.  Trust us; it’s really not that easy and these pictures are kind of a big deal.  That horror story of your sister-in-law who has no wedding photos because her Dad’s friend who was “the photographer” forgot to put the memory card in the camera makes our skin crawl and we can’t stand the thought of that happening to you.  So, in the best interest of all you brides-to-be, we’ve put together a top five list of why you need a professional to capture your day:

  1. You only get one shot at this!  Have you ever heard the saying “you only get one chance to make a first impression?”  Well, you only get one chance to capture all the special “firsts” on your wedding;  that perfect moment when the man of your dreams sees you for the first time in your dress, the first kiss as husband and wife, your special moment with your parents before they give you away.  Having a professional photographer on the day of your wedding will promise that you will always have the chance to re-live all the perfect moments of your special day.  Your photographer has an eye for these things and won’t miss the all-important shots.
  2. Your wedding day will be over quicker than you can imagine.  When everything is over, it will probably feel like a massive blur.  Did you see your cousins laughing together over champagne?  Did you notice the flower girls spinning on the dance floor? Your photographer will be there to catch these special moments, so you can truly feel like you knew all the amazing things that went on that day.
  3. How long have you been planning this?  Although your fiancée didn’t appreciate that the invitations, programs, and menu cards are all colour coordinated to the napkins and flowers, we did.  Having a professional photographer will strategically catch all the little elements that you’ve included.  Those flower balls that you hand made from tissue paper, the pew markers, your reception table – all the little details will be beautifully preserved for you to remember forever (and show off to anyone that asks!).
  4. Technical excellence.  Need we say more?  Like we mentioned earlier, it’s really not as easy as a little Photoshop.  There is a big difference between a hobby photographer and someone whose life revolves around this art form.  Leave it up to an expert to ensure nothing is lost.  You are gorgeous – don’t let photo editing take away from your beauty.  It should only enhance it.  The camera will capture everything stunning that is your wedding; just let a professional give it a little guidance.
  5. Memories are wonderful and we know you will never forget your big day.  Don’t risk ever letting these images in your mind fade.  Whether it be a beautiful coffee table book, pictures hung on the wall, or simply a memory box kept in your closet, we want you to smile every time you think of your wedding.  In the end, all it’s about is the love shared between you and your husband.  Keep your memories alive and vivid and always at your fingertips.  Flipping through your photos after the dust has settled should stir up all the same feelings you felt that day – and we hope you never lose those butterflies.

We are so thankful for yet another amazing year of Family Photo Fundraisers. More than 19 schools or associations took part in this fundraiser and managed to raise thousands of dollars for their schools and associations. Some schools had more than a hundred families turn out for their fundraiser. It is such a pleasure to photograph many of the same families year after year. We are so happy to be ahead of schedule this year (thanks to MJM Photography and their amazing lab!) and are expecting to have all photos out to families by the end of next week! We look forward to working with these schools and associations again in the Spring and next fall. Remember to not wait and make sure your schools are booked for this fundraiser for next year.

Juvenile Diabetes Starlight Gala Fundraiser

Juvenile-Diabetes-Starlight-Gala-Fundraiser-2011


Last night we had the priviledge to be a part of the Juvenile Diabetes Starlight Gala Fundraiser at the Coast Capri Hotel. What an incredible experience it was to be a part of such an event. The Coast Capri banquet room was transformed and was absolutely gorgeous. We were part of photographing all of the couples as they entered the event, after they perused the incredible silent auction. We were printing pictures on sight to give as a giveaway to the guests. It was so much fun to see so many great people who were there to support such an incredible cause. Andy and TJ from Astral media hosted the event and did a great job. The amount of work that was put in to make this event a success was inspiring. Countless people and business donated their time, their money and their services to make this event a spectacular success and help raise money for an amazing cause. We were truly honored to be a part of it and hope to do so again in upcoming years. Thank you to all of the amazing coordinators, volunteers and businesses to make the annual JD Starlight Gala such a success! For more information on this event and the cause check out www.jdrf.ca .

Posted by on in Uncategorized

We are so excited for another season of Family Photo School Fundraisers. September has certainly cooperated with the weather and we are certainly hoping that October is the same. Our online ordering is up and running again this fall with an exciting new addition of a data download.  This will be a wonderful solution for families looking to have their photos instantly. After ordering and the payment has been processed an email will be sent to you with instructions on how to download your photos instantly. This download will be of all of your beautiful images taken that day and will be high resolution. All with the same cost as ordering a CD. We are excited to add this new option to our Family Photo Fundraisers. 

This year we are working with more than 20 schools for our Family Photo Fundraiser. It is such a great opportunity for Parent Advisory Councils to fundraise for their schools while offering beautiful family photographs to their students. This fundraiser involves very little organization on the part of the PAC's and can earn your schools thousands of dollars each year. If you are interested in booking your school or sports association a Family Photo Fundraiser for the Spring please let us know.

Caleb Lanz

Caleb Lanz

Over the past number of years we've had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful young man named Caleb. Twenty months ago Caleb was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer called DIGP. He took on this challenge with an amazing amount of strength and courage and has inspired so many people to truly appreciate each and every day. Surrounded by incredible family and friends he defeated all odds and outlived his prognosis. This past Saturday morning Caleb passed away and left a hole for those people fortunate enough to know him. 

We wanted to thank the families of North Glenmore Elementary that had to be rescheduled on Saturday morning with your graciousness and for your understanding when our photographers were a little distracted . One of our photographers is an extremely close family friend and we are so thankful for her willingness to continue shooting on Sunday after such a loss. 

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Lanz Family. Caleb's celebration of life is on Saturday at 11am at Trinity Baptist Church.

It is hard to believe that the start of the 2011/2012 school year is upon us. This summer seemed to fly by even faster than last year and we are gearing up for an incredibly busy fall season. Hopefully the late start to our summer weather will make for an incredibly warm and sunny Fall. We are looking forward to a jam packed School and Family Photo season and are excited to add five new schools to our School Photography and our Family Photography Fundraiser.  September also brings a big change with the launch of our newly updated website. We are so excited for our new user friendly webpage and are incredibly thankful to Todd Avison and John Holman from the Joe Rich Project for all of their hard work. Keep checking back here for scheduling information and any information regarding possible disruptions due to teachers’ job action. Also join our page on Facebook for more information and updates!

Congratulations to Katie and Graham!

Posted by on in Uncategorized

Wedding at Serenity Gardens in Kelowna BC
We had the privilege of being able to photograph Katie and Graham’s wedding this past weekend. Having known Katie for a number of years it made being a part of this day even more special for us. From the moment Katie stepped out of the car she took our breath away. One of my favorite moments was watching her childhood friends all burst into tears as she walked towards them. Stunning doesn’t begin to describe how she looked. Taking pre-wedding photos at the Cross’s Orchard in South Kelowna was such a treat. There were more locations than we could possible shoot in such a short time and we would love to return again sometime soon. The wedding ceremony was held at the Serenity Gardens,  what an incredibly beautiful location. This summer was the first summer opened up for rental and what a stunning location it is. Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for an outdoor venue! Graham and Katie’s ceremony was beautiful. We used many of the great outdoor locations around the Gardens for our photos and had such a great time with this incredible couple. Their sense of humor and playful manner was so much fun to photograph. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day Katie and Graham. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
