Wedding Season In the Okanagan! http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2015/2/Okanagan-photographer I love the romance and excitement of photographing engagements and weddings; to be inside the velvet rope, so to speak! The Okanagan valley offers a huge range of beautiful venues for the ceremony and reception plus there are hundreds of hidden location gems to do a "first look" and formal/fun photos between the ceremony and the reception.

A few photos from weddings that I have had the honour of photographing.

 

Edu and Tanya striking a pose in Madrid, Spain. Such a fun day! 

 

JP and Michelle looking amazing! They were so relaxed and fun to work with.

 

 

 

Kyle and April's engagement photos. Beautiful people inside and out. So excited to photograph their wedding this year!

 

James and Angela enjoying a moment with the Okanagan lake in the background. There was lots of laughter that day! 

 

Everyone looking stunning! Chris and Chelsey and their wedding party were stars in front of the camera!

 

If you haven't booked your photographer for your wedding day I would love to talk to you!

Kitsch 'n Sync - Glam gals. Vintage vocals. http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2014/3/portrait-photographer I recently had the pleasure of capturing the essence of what makes up the singing trio Kitsch 'n Sync in a fun, vintage-styled photo shoot! Many thanks to Marianne for providing her beautifully decorated and lovingly restored 1939 home, which made the shoot period piece perfection. 

Well, that was fun! On to the next song.

Karen believes even mundane bathroom chores can be palatable with bubble gum and a martini!

Thank you to the gals from Kitsch 'n Sync for the fun photo shoot. I can't wait to hear their harmonious take on classic tunes from the 1940s, 50s and 60s!

Landscape Photography Show Opener http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/11/landscape-photographer-okanagan I'm really excited to invite you to attend the official opening of a month-long showing of my landscape photography – Okanagan Vistas and Vineyards: A Valley Revealed - at the Streaming Cafe at 596 Leon Avenue in Kelowna from 7 – 9 p.m. on December 11, 2013.

We'll have some nibbles on hand, beverages will be available for purchase, as will the landscape prints on display. Christmas will be just two weeks away at that point, and an original, beautifully mounted landscape photo would make a great gift!

Donations to the Kelowna Women's Shelter (money, non-perishable food items, grocery store gift cards) will be gratefully accepted.

As a special thank you, those who attend can also enter a draw to win one of the images (12x18) featured in the show .

I look forward to seeing you there!

Family Photos are Forever http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/11/Lipsett-Photography-Group Not everyone likes this kind of reminder, but Christmas is just 38 days away! It's that annual holiday that brings everyone together from near and far to spend precious time as a group.  

What better time to arrange to capture the memories through family photos? Or to present those impossible to buy for family members with a photo shoot gift certificate?

Photos truly are a gift that lasts a lifetime, and never goes out of style!  Family portrait with some pop!

Wedding destination - helicopter required! http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/10/wedding-destination-helicopter-required Lovebirds Lindsay and Jeff love hiking, climbing and spending time in the back country, so high atop Mt. Begbie near Revelstoke, B.C. was a natural place to hold their wedding ceremony.

I took the first chopper ride up to the top, and had the rare opportunity to get to choose the exact spot where the ceremony would occur, all based on the location of the sun and the availability of photo backdrops and general, scenic beauty!

 

They are married!

Mother Nature must have known there was something special happening that day! There was heavy rain the day before; heavy rain the day after; and heavy rain only 20 minutes AFTER the helicopter landed back in Revelstoke after the ceremony! It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple, and I was honoured to share it!

 

 

 

They are back on the ground in Revelstoke, BC.The good looking couple, now Mr. and Mrs.

Photo shoots for 2014 are already booking up, so if you've got a wedding or other event coming up, let's connect soon to talk about how I can capture the magic of your special day!

Canmore Come Back http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/8/Kelowna-photographer Like many of us, I followed news coverage of this summer's devastating floods in Alberta closely. So when long time clients, Sticks and Stones Design Group, recently asked me to head to Canmore and Calgary to photograph some of their work, I was curious to see what I might find.

 

It was amazing to see that while evidence of the flooding was apparent, an incredible amount of repair work has already been done, and the hard-working people of these great communities have come together in a way that's truly inspiring, and uniquely Canadian.

The homes featured here are just a few examples of the beautiful spaces I regularly get the privilege of photographing.

 

A wonderful mix of design elements made this home in Calgary a delight to photograph.

Clean Lines. Stunning Design. http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/8/Commercial-Photographer When planning real estate photography, I watch the weather like an eagle-eyed meteorologist. I check the Environment Canada website in advance for the long-range forecast, and rely on my handy Doppler app for updates as the day of the shoot gets closer. Then I focus on calculating sunset or sunrise times, and figuring out where the sun will hit the property in order to show it in the best light. (Pardon the pun!)

I really enjoy working with designers and builders, and it's extra special for me when the pictures I take help them win professional recognition and awards. With the Canadian Home Builders Association of the Central Okanagan now accepting submissions for the 2013 Tommie Awards I'm looking forward to working once again with new, and existing, clients to capture the beauty and skill of their work in photos.

It was a gala affair covered by all the media, with a broad range of dignitaries and VIP's in attendance. From a hole in the ground to a beautiful hotel with 120 plush rooms and Ric's Lounge and Grill in 15 short months, the Four Points by Sheraton Airport is a crown jewel for Argus Properties, and testament to the company's 'get-it-done' attitude.

Thanks for voting! http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/6/thanks-for-voting It's 6:30 am on June 11th and I'm nervously scanning the just-released
results of the WelcometoKelowna.com Best of Kelowna 2013 contest when my
phone buzzes to indicate a new text has arrived. The note from my
girlfriend, Karen, who was obviously much quicker than I at finding the
results, read: "You won!!!!!" Excitement and gratitude immediately
replaced nerves!

 

Another day in the Okanagan paradise!


What a humbling experience to be selected as Kelowna's Best Photographer.

Viva Las Wedding! http://www.LipsettPhotographyGroup.com/blog/2013/5/Viva-Las-Wedding  

It was a beautiful morning for Darren and Dana's Las Vegas wedding, with barely a cloud in the sky and temperatures in the low 30's predicted. In planning the shot list, I knew mixing air-conditioned, indoor locations with outdoor, iconic Vegas landmarks as backdrops was critical!
