Wedding Season In the Okanagan! https://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. https://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.

Landscape Photography Show Opener https://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 .

Family Photos are Forever https://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! https://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!

The beautiful bride, Lindsay Smith.Helicoptering up to the top of Mt. Begbie in Revelstoke, BC for the wedding ceremony.

 

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 https://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.

Clean Lines. Stunning Design. https://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!)

 

When I photographed this beautiful home in Penticton for Kim at All Elements: Design. Manage. Build recently, the planets aligned, and the clouds cooperated!

 

 

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.

Viva Las Wedding! https://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!

Tips on making a property photo ready. https://www.lipsettphotographygroup.com/blog/2013/4/five-tips-for-preparing-for-real-estate-photos As a commercial photographer I am fortunate to work with a number of excellent, detail-oriented builders and designers in the Okanagan valley and beyond. It's always a treat to go into a beautifully-prepared space, and capture images that will make their work shine.

Here are my top five tips on what you can do to get that same result, whether you're preparing to sell your home or showcase your latest professional project.

 

1)  Replace that burnt out light bulb! Even if it is dangling 20 feet off the floor in a stunning chandelier, or is high up under the eaves of a home, like the one below!

 

A stunning home in southern Alberta designed by Sticks and Stones Design Group located in Canmore, Calgary, Ab and Kelowna, BC.

 

2) Shower and mirror spots and streaks begone!  Sparkling is the word that should always come to mind when you're looking at a space that's about to photographed. So apply a little elbow grease, and get that hardwood and tile gleaming!

 

A beautiful home built by Timberhaven Homes in Kelowna ,BC.

 

3)  Eliminate mats! Kitchen mats, bathroom mats (unless they're part of the colour scheme), front door mats, backdoor mats, dog mats, and even entry mats outside the front door. They're practical and necessary, but rarely photogenic!

 

Designed by Begrand Fast Design in Kelowna and constructed by Timberhaven Homes.

 

4)  Clear counter clutter. Blenders, coffee makers, that "to do" basket, sink soap, and anything by the bathroom sink should be placed out of sight. And clear the shower out. We want people's eyes to be struck by the beautiful tile work not latch onto your favourite brand of shampoo!

 

 

5)  Choose the best time of day. Naturally, the best time for photos is often less-than convenient. Dinner time (about an hour before sunset), and early morning around sunrise is when you'll get optimal light. When a photography shoot is coming up, I watch the weather forecast more than a meteorologist!

 

 

How do you get a property ready for photos? I'd love to hear your ideas!

If you have building or design projects that you want to shine as they should, contact me.

A touch of Mexico https://www.lipsettphotographygroup.com/blog/2013/3/a-touch-of-mexico Three hours south of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is Boca de Iguanas. We were there for 8 days and I felt the relaxation wash over me as soon as I smelled the tropical breeze and heard the steady sound of the surf.

There are a couple of large, and apparently quite hungry, resident crocodiles. Leave small pets at home or their vacation may not be that great!

 

One of the local crocodiles. Keeping a wary eye on me.

It was true Mexico. We toured the bay on a genuine Mexican fishing boat! This turned into one of the best parts of the trip. Not only did we catch fish for dinner, but we also got to see a whale and her calf frolic in the waves. All this, plus a cruise into the mangroves and scenes of diving pelicans kept my camera busy.

 

A humpback whale taking a breath.

So close you could hear the whale exhale.

 

We got to go into a mangrove swamp. Birds everywhere!

 

 

It was such a rejuvenating trip and I look forward to sharing a few more photos in the weeks to come.

Happy Easter!

Looking for a great getaway? - Cozy Cabins Nature Resort https://www.lipsettphotographygroup.com/blog/2013/3/commercial-photography---cozy-cabins-nature-resort  

It was the perfect weekend for a winter photo shoot.

 

The temperature at Cozy Cabins Nature Resort near Lumby, British Columbia was just below freezing, and the ground and trees were laden with fluffy, fresh snow.  The air was still and the stars glistened in the night sky.

 

For my comfort, warm socks, boots and gloves were a given, but I didn't mind being a little chilly when it meant I got the opportunity to capture images like these:

Cozy Cabins Nature Resort is 90 minutes from Kelowna, adjacent to Echo Lake Provincial ParkCozy Cabins Nature Resort The beautiful and spacious Cougar Cabin, one of seven available for rent.
 
 
 
Cozy Cabins Nature Resort is 45 minutes from Vernon and open year round.Cozy Cabins Nature Resort Melody cozied up by the fire.
 
 
 

Cozy Cabins Nature Resort has seven cabins for rent year roundCozy Cabins Nature Resort

Cozy Cabins Nature Resort is 45 minutes from Vernon and 90 minutes from Kelowna. It’s definitely one of the coziest, and most relaxing, places I’ve ever stayed and I can’t wait to go back and check it out in the summer!

 

I love helping people and organizations like Cozy Cabins take their business to the next level through photography. Whether you need product, real estate, event or people shots for your website and other marketing efforts, Lipsett Photography Group can help! Contact me at info@lipsettphotographygroup.com

Congratulations and a gift certificate introduction! https://www.lipsettphotographygroup.com/blog/2013/2/congratulations-and-a-gift-certificate-introduction Congratulations to Ryan and Majda on the birth of their boy, Dominik, on February 18! It seems like only yesterday I photographed their intimate wedding at the Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna last December. 


 

Being a romance junkie, I especially love photographing weddings and am always honoured to be asked to take part in such a special occasion. So, of course, I am super excited to be going to Las Vegas, Nevada in May, and to the top of a mountain in Revelstoke, BC by helicopter in August to do photographs for two very special couples! 

 

I am also excited to begin offering a gift certificate program that will allow your guests to contribute to your wedding photography package as their wedding gift. It's perfect for those couples who already have all the dishes and silverware they'll ever need!

 

Wedding packages start at $2500. If you'd like to know more about the gift certificate program or just want to connect about your wedding day plans and how photography is going to play a part in the celebration, I'd love to hear from you!
