Blog 77 : Positively Negative

This month for the Creative Potential Photo Club we meditate on the idea of using negative space to compose our photos. Negative space doesn't have to mean a plain white background—bright colours, repetitive patterns, or rich textures can also be a way to use negative space in an image.

Blog 76 : Emily and Royden

There were tears from both sides of the aisle and across the stage throughout the ceremony. I have never seen so many tears from all sides before. As a wedding photographer, I love to capture rich emotion, which this Edmonton wedding provided in ample supply.

Blog 74 : Composing with Colour

This month we're meditating on another internal, contemplative assignment and exploring the idea of composition with colour.

63 : Chris and Kate

Chris grabs Kate's hand in that beautiful moment of hesitation before people get comfortable in front of my lens. Then Chris does a simple thing: he kisses Kate's nose.

Photographing the Kaliel family presented me with a new challenge: four adult humans who are connected by good looks and quirky senses of humour, each with different levels of skepticism and hope for the project.

55 : Minimalist Wedding Photography

I have this wedding package I call the Heron. It’s last on the list of options I offer, and few people actually consider it. I’d like to take a moment to explain this long-legged bird, and give her a chance to take flight. Selena Phillips-Boyle is a Montreal portrait and wedding photographer.
