An overdue studio update!

Hey guys, sorry this blog has been somewhat non-existent these days! There is lots to post but the last couple months have been insane for Josh and I. To start we found an amazing new apartment and moved at the end of December which, lets be honest, is the worst time of year to move. It meant that pretty well all of December was filled with packing craziness. On top of all that (now here’s the bad news) we are also moving out of our beloved studio. Its been hard to figure out a way to write that without just bursting into a puddle of tears and I wanted to stay in denial as long as I could. But the building was purchased and once my lease expired the new owners increased my rent an astronomical amount. We talked about it a lot but at the end of the day, we just couldn’t justify paying almost double the rent for the exact same space. The good news is that I have a lovely office area in our new apartment and will still be booking photoshoots there as well!

So I wanted to ease any fears. We are alive and well. The business is doing better than ever and we are excited for the coming season. We just don’t have a studio anymore. As of February 1st we’ll be based out of the Mount Pleasant area and super close to lots of great coffee shops and hang out spots so meeting with YOU (our amazing clients) will not be difficult at all. Thanks for your continued support and patience with my lack of online presence. Many blog posts to come shortly.

Palm Springs Desert Exploring - Destination wedding photographers

Palm Springs Lifestyle Photographers

A big part of our jobs as wedding photographers is location scouting. Weather if it's for an engagement shoot, a lifestyle session, or a wedding we're always on the hunt for new places and locations to photograph in. Most venue's in Vancouver host hundreds of weddings a year, so it's our mission to make sure we capture your wedding in a way that's unique to you and who you are as a couple. We love to sneak in at least one new or quirky location in every shoot. The problem with that is the longer we've been photographers the harder it gets to find places you haven't been before. That's where location scouting becomes and art. It's a skill that has to be excessed often and we take that very seriously. You'll rarely catch us taking the same road home, or if we're late, it's probably because we took a detour somewhere along the way because we spotted some building with absurd architecture or a huge field of freshly blooming flowers. This trip has been no different. Josh, in particular, has an ability to find the most bizarre places. Like this random oasis in the middle of the desert. Despite the fact my paralyzing fear of snakes meant I was running from boulder to boulder because I was convinced a snake would jump out and 'get me' I was just as equally as blown away by the beauty around me. Maybe it's because these California landscapes are so different from home. Every few minutes I seem to be dying over something I'm seeing. All this to say I've realized two things... Number one, travel is good for the soul. Number two, I couldn't image going on these adventures with anyone else other then my love. 

If you're getting married in Palm Springs or Vancouver, get in touch! We'd love to have you over to our studio for some coffee (or tea) to chat about your wedding. Getting married internationally? Good news, we love to travel!

Ashley - Vancouver Commercial Photographers

Buying my first backdrop for the studio was quite the experience. I'm not even sure Christmas morning was this exciting... and let me tell you folks, I am quite serious about Christmas. It's the little things in life that makes a photographer happy. Especially one from Vancouver. The second I'm able to take beautiful images indoors life just gets that much better. 

Josh just assumed I would get white or black. Start with the basics and work your way from there. But I'm not usually one to do what's practical so leave it to me to get a bright pink backdrop. So if you've been following along on Instagram you've been seeing a lot of pink. No shame friends! Pink is in. At least in my world. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my day than experimenting with lighting and photographing this mega babe Ashely. Trying to narrow down pictures from this mini shoot was impossible, there were just too many favourites. So if you love to have fun, call me up and let's pick a colour and take some pictures together.
