Country Weddings – Alberta Style

I was so honoured to be a part of Julie + Eric’s special day.  It’s hard to choose which images to showcase as I love them all! But I might be a little biased as this was a family wedding.  The wedding took place at Notre Dame  des Victoires / Lac La Biche Mission Alberta. It was established in 1853 and is a national historic site.   I was born and raised in Calgary and have family all over and Alberta.  Lac La Biche is where it all started.

Manitoba Hydro Torch Relay

It was so much fun photographing part of the torch relay!  Dr. Shannon Prud’homme and Jason Pruden where 2 out of 67 torch bearers for the 2017 Canada Games.  Although their leg with the torch was a small one, they sure had fun being escorted by police!

Deserving Better

Now that my mom is older I’ve started driving her around more.  I knew it was time to change vehicle’s when she was always holding her chest and  accused me of hitting ever pot hole on purpose!     I would just laugh, as our Winnipeg roads are in terrible shape and my little Nissan Juke had a very hard ride.   I wanted something just a little bit bigger for her mobility scooter and  needed something with smoother ride….but what?

I test drove so many cars and met with so many salespeople, I became numb and couldn’t make up my mind, until I tried the Buick Encore.   The minute I drove it out of the parking lot I knew this car was different.  It no longer felt I was driving on goat trails!  The interior is beautiful with a few more bells and whistles.  I was sold!

The salesperson who made my shopping experience a pleasure was Guy Nowe.  He was incredibly helpful and didn’t push me into anything.  Even after 3 test drives and taking the Encore  home over night.  When Guy gave me his business card, I thought wow…is this you?  His photo didn’t look anything like him!  It looked like a passport photo, and I found out later it was…LOL

I offered a complimentary portrait for Guy, as I didn’t think his photo did him any justice.  Is there any comparison?  Doesn’t even look like the same person!

Thanks Guy for making my car shopping experience excellent! My mom and I deserved a better ride, and you deserved a better photo 🙂

2 AWARDS!

I photograph many event’s. Over the past 25+ years  I’ve never seen the same person accept different awards with-in a few days…. well until this past week!

First the volunteer awards.

The Manitoba Liquor + Lotteries Family volunteer Award was just one of many.

It was presented by Janine Stephens, to The White Family.  In recognition of their volunteer contributions to the Freight House, Habitat for Humanity, EcoAction Club, Boys and Girls Club, coaching basketball and mentoring youth at Dufferin school. Together, they encourage inclusiveness, education and respect in the community…. can you say WOW!

Three days later  I’m photographing the teaching excellence award, and  I recognize the orange flower in her hair and of course her name, Majorie White.  I was blown away, how could a single parent make time for all she does.

I don’t often post photo’s of events, but truly felt Marjorie White needed just a little more recognition for her awesome accomplishments.  Congratulations once again!
