“Passion will push you to accomplish feats you never thought were possible. I am incredibly grateful not only to work in a career field I am passionate about but also to represent my country on the world stage. This is a dream come true! It is a tremendous honour to be part of Team Canada.”
We travelled to the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton on my client’s wedding day. As we walked up the stairs, I noticed the glass railing reflected the stairs and created unique lines and angles. My clients were waiting further down the staircase, enjoying a tender moment together. I quickly asked my assistant to use a modified off-camera flash to light them. I carefully positioned my clients in a dark area of the railing reflection while balancing the exposure of the off-camera flash with the natural sunlight hitting the stairs in the reflection.
