I had a great pleasure to photograph this wonderful couple. Lindsay and Mike have been together for almost three years and got engaged last November. I had a lot of fun and giggles with them and cannot wait for their wedding this fall :)

So, I am crazy behind on blogging :) But I have an excuse for that! I've been busy!
Last Saturday me and a few other photographers: Nancy and Maros , Eaterina, Kurtis and Julie  went to Drumheller to have a off camera flash workshop with two beautiful models: Darcy and Rebecca.
Here is some of the pictures:

Where and How to save your money | Calgary wedding photographer

As many of you know, I am getting married to a wonderful man this summer and, as most of us I don't want to over pay for things without any need for it.
I did a lot of research and found following places to save your buck:

  • To alter your wedding gown: most of the places charge ridiculous amount of money for simple thing. By being lucky I found this girl, Shannon, from Motek Clothing Co., who altered my Alfred Sung dress for $52.50 (including GST and custom ties for my long train!) She is awesome and conveniently located in the Fashion Central on Stephens Avenue and first street (Down town).
          Monday- Friday 10AM – 6PM
          Saturday 10.30AM – 6PM
         Call for more info: 403.266.3887

  • Another place to save some money is the registries! When applying for a marriage license you might want to shop around. The government cost of it is only $40, registries charging their own price, depending either on weather conditions, or how they felt that day…it might vary from $67 to crazy $120! For the same piece of paper! So, the cheapest I was able to find is the one on McLeod Trail (4660 MacLeod Trail SW) for $66.25

Good luck!

{AG Plateria - Silver Boutique} | Calgary photographer

Last Friday, it was my absolute pleasure to photograph one of the most enjoyable places for a girl to shop in Calgary – The AG Silver Boutique! Yes, I am a girly girl sometimes! :D What can I say? I love pretty, shiny and tasteful things! :)
The owner of this place, Jose Luis, is a very friendly and welcoming person. When I first stepped into the store, I thought that it was probably a super expensive place, as everything looked just so amazingly beautiful that it had to be expensive...I was wrong! Prices were more than acceptable and the quality of the items was remarkable (my friends know my expensive taste for things :) )! So, I asked Jose Luis where he gets these beautiful creations. “It is a family business” he said “And we design and create our own pieces. That’s what makes them unique” ...and I completely agree with him.

You can find this beautiful store conveniently located in the heart of downtown Calgary on Stephens Avenue (212, 805 - First Street SW – on 8th Ave.) – Fashion Central on the Upper Level. Mon - Sat 11am - 6pm; you will need to make an appointment if you would like to visit the store on Sunday.
