When east meets west sparks fly. In this case, that was a wonderful thing! Fotographix photographed a lovely cultural practice common for Chinese weddings: a tea ceremony. Following the ceremony, we traveled to Glenmore Reservoir for the exchanging of vows. Afterwards, we had a great time taking photos of the happily married couple around the docks. We were honoured to be a part of this special day.
We're already looking forward to next season's weddings!
There are wedding pictures, and then there are the pictures that come before the wedding: Engagement photos. These are the shoots that are really fun. Why? Because it's a chance to work with the engaged couple in a low pressure environment. It's also an opportunity for the couple to get used to being in front of the camera. Engagement photos are becoming more popular for couples seeking something a little different, and this is fantastic news for photographers because it gives us a chance to try out shots that would be very difficult on the wedding day due to timing constraints.
The photos above were taken in Banff, Alberta just a short drive from Calgary. If you'd like to learn more about Fotographix's engagement photography, please call 403.398.6713.
Calgary realtors are always seeking ways to reach buyers on behalf of their clients. Having professional images is quickly becoming par for the course. Indeed, point n' shoot snapshots has become a signal that a home is not being seriously marketed.
Professionally photographed homes are more likely to stand out from other MLS listings and look fantastic on feature sheets and realtor websites. Twilight photos -- like the ones shown above -- are being requested by more and more realtors every year. Fotographix is happy to oblige the demand. We think homes look spectacular when photographed at twilight. Our clients tend to agree!
Winter is a challenging time for real estate photographers. Snow covers brown lawns, trees look drab and the sky is often grey. One way to deal with this challenge is to photograph at twilight when the sky's colours are rich and the lighting of a home provides inviting warmth. Chris Stutz's fantastic image (seen above) showcases this effect nicely.
The sellers of this home did a fantastic job renovating and staging their property. Fotographix did our part to showcase the best features of the home. Give us a call at 403.398.6713 if you'd like to book a photographer or visit our rates page for more information.
