Candice and I enjoy "on location" photo shoots for both the challenges of producing an excellent image for the client and the actual working with the clients.

The image above was produced for a automobile customization company here in the Okanagan Valley of BC. Our client wanted a unique image that showcased their products and was suitable for inclusion in a proposed poster.

We travelled down to Skaha Lake on the Easter weekend for the shoot. The client supplied the vehicles, products and model for the photo shoot.

It's a family owned and run business and they were awesome to work with. We presented our ideas, they present their's and we came away with some excellent images.

To make the products stand out from the lakeside scenery I suggested that perhaps we leave the model, vehicles and rims in colour and change the background to black and white. I think it worked and the clients were trilled with the final image.

A great way to spend a day during the Easter holiday!

Candice and I are back into wedding and engagement season and that means lots of shooting images.

This weekend we shot Lindsey and Cory's engagement up on Knox Mountain Regional Park, a popular site for wedding photography.

Lindsey and Cory we awesome to shoot and lot's of fun.

The above image is one of my favourites. It shows off their tattoos, which they wanted, the setting is great and provides them with a memory of the city they are going to be married in (they live in another city).

Engagement sessions also give me and Candice a chance to get to know the couple before their wedding day. It establishes a relationship that is carried over into the wedding shoot. If I had my choice I'd do an engagement session with every couple that contracts us to photograph their wedding for that reason!

Hey everyone, that's it for me today. Have a great week and we'll talk to you soon - Craig
