victoria bc wedding photographer


I had the pleasure recently to second shoot/assist for one of Victorias premier photographers, Kelsey Goodwin of KGOODPHOTO.

Marilena and Vince’s wedding was held in the historical Craigflower schoolhouse on Admirals Road, just north of the Craigflower Bridge in Saanich, BC. The land on which the schoolhouse sits is on the shore of the Gorge Waterway, and includes an ancient archaeological site.

Just looking at Marilena and Vince you could see they were very much in love  and both were up for any photo suggestions Kelsey had. We had a lot of fun and captured a lot of great images for them to remember their day.

For more pictures from Marilena and Vince’s wedding, please see Kelseys blog at http://kgoodphotoblog.com/marilena-vince-wedding

Thanks for letting me share in the day.

What is Help-Portrait?

The goal of Help-Portrait is simple: 1. Find someone in need 2. Take their portrait 3. Print their portrait and 4. Deliver their portrait. Help-Portrait was held December 12, 2009 and if this first year was any indicator, this will become an annual event.

Help-Portrait was formed by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart as he contemplated using his skills and expertise to give back to those who may not have the opportunity for a professional photo. The idea is that a photographer has the unique ability to help someone smile, laugh and return their dignity- it is a movement, a shift in photography.

The families and individuals I photographed were representative of a vast majority of people who work hard to sustain themselves in today’s economy. To be photographed by a professional photographer is something that is just not in their budget, and I felt honored to take their pictures.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank Lighthouse Gallery in Victoria for giving me the space to set up and take the pictures. As an aside, at time of posting this blog, all artwork in the photographs are available for purchase [and are on sale for 50% off!!].

Thanx also to Loupe Imaging in Victoria for printing the photographs which will be given to the people whose pictures I took.

Finally, many thanks to all who came in!! And thank you for allowing me to share your beautiful portraits!!

Here are a few of the images taken; a few more will be posted tomorrow.

Received an email from Help-Portrait at 8:30pm Dec 12th, and they reported that with only 43% of the locations reporting, 17,200+ pictures taken, 1400+ photographers had participated, & there were 2720+ volunteers!! It’ll be interesting to see the final totals as pretty much every country in the world had participating professional photographers.

Amore-Infinito Photography had the pleasure of photographing Angela and Ryans wedding in Calgary earlier this month.  Here is a sneak preview of a selection of images taken [more images will be added to our website, amore-infinito.com shortly].

One of the courses we took at the Western Academy of Photography focused on engagements and weddings. I have previously worked, for 2 years, as a photographer for The Mission Record newspaper, and as well have covered various events for The Minerva Foundation in Vancouver, so I was looking forward to utilizing my photojournalistic style to the shoots.

Although I have shot a few weddings in the past, the course brought me up-to-date on the current trends with both weddings and engagements. The school brought in a few Bride and Grooms, and a fellow classmate and her husband also modeled for me.
