2011, that's a wrap!
The end of a year always makes me think back and remember everything that has happened... while also looking forward to the coming year and of course, upcoming wedding season!
This wedding season took me to some new places and revisited a few of my favourites. I met a whole lot of awesome people. I photographed lots of newborns, mostly gorgeous little girls... maybe 2012 will be lots of boys??
I traveled back to Ontario as I do every year for a wedding but this time, it was for my friend, Abbey, who I've known since elementary school.
I began pursuing commercial and editorial photography in earnest, giving unique product shots to some pretty neat-o local businesses and launched a new area of my website to showcase this side of my business. I also photographed my first full advertising campaign for Well Seasoned A Gourmet Food Store. Did you happen to catch these cheeky ads in the Langley Times or Edible Vancouver magazine?

I always recommend Jayna Marie to my clients and it's always a treat to arrive when she's still finishing up!

In July, the world lost an amazing person. Son, brother, uncle and friend, Andrew Vaydo. Just 10 days after the loss of her brother, Katy joined me as planned to meet Heather in Calgary and walk 60km's in the fight against cancer. Walking for my fourth time, with two of my closest friends in their first event was an emotional, life-changing weekend. Our little team of 3 raised over $6200 and crossed the finish line hand in hand.

In September, 50 of Andrew's family and friends formed Team Andrew Forever, raised an astounding $10,000 and walked in Vancouver's Light The Night Event for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society.

I photographed a Vietnamese Buddhist ceremony for the first time and the temple took my mind right back to Thailand, it was so similar.
In the afternoon, we shot around Coal Harbour and the light was best on the bike path. Most people were lovely, but some people take their bike path very seriously - we decided to create a few motion blurred shots to have a chuckle

My workshop to teach people how to use their fancy cameras was a success and I will be continuing in 2012... get in touch for info and I'll be keeping you up to date re: dates etc for these!

I ran my "Open Air Fabulous PhotoBooth of FUN" at a handful of events, including this one, a wedding photographed by my friend Audra, it was fun to see her in action!

I want to thank all of my wedding clients, business owners, new parents, clients of all kinds who chose me to be the one to create their photographs. Thank-you for a truly memorable 2011.
To my wedding clients for 2012... it's gonna be an amazing year and I'm already excited about each and every wedding that's been booked!
