RAD Portraits!

Hello! (I’m waving)

After shooting quite a slew of wicked cool portraits, we’ve decided we must put up a separate site for our beloved portraits. We’re working on it! We’re still very much in wedding mode right now so it’ll be up in time but we’re just so excited to share the news that ‘YES! We currently are accepting portrait clients’ (but actually we always have but haven’t put much emphasis on it). We don’t really know how it all happened… it kinda just came to be and blew up! 

We are lovin’ the pets! Boy, does Yaletown love their animals!!

So, if you know anyone who’d like a portrait session, you may let them know that we’re down!

 

 

It’s so official.

It’s Back!!! The Office!!! It’s Back!!!!

Hey guys, just in case you have been living under a rock of some sort and had no idea – we wanted to let you know that The Office is back on NBC for this season. The Office makes us want to stand on top of a mountainside and declare our love for it. Unfortunately we don’t have a mountain around our neighborhood. But I do have a computer and a wordpress account – so we just to let you know Danelle and I have a healthy love for each other, skee ball, and The Office <not necessarily in that order> =)

We grabbed a few shots last night. Leave me a comment if you get it =)

I’m gonna leave you with this video. Classic! JUST CLASSIC!

Gen & Kevin | September 13, 2008

The weddings just keep getting better and better! I mean seriously! Gen and Kev have become friends and we just couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding. I learned another great thing about Gen… this girl has wonderful taste in shoes! She started off the day with a pair of smokin’ heels by Marc Jacobs and changed in to a sweet pair of flats by Stuart Weiztman, and all the while prancing in her gorgeous Nicole Miller dress. She was a vision… I’ve been going through their wedding images and can’t help but tell Ral that Gen is breathtaking! All yous, I encourage you to be in her company at some point. Her confidence, poise, warm heartedness and welcome are a delight. So imaging all that on her wedding day. BREATHTAKING, I tell you! 

Kevin, her new husband was just beaming. Glowing, so happy… you see, he’s the guy you go to to get your wedding and engagement rings done. He’s so talented and so detailed, I just couldn’t help but admire the time and thought that went into the intricacies of the day. They both should be soooooo proud! And being that Kevin’s role is to hand off rings to people who are about to solidify their commitment, he just had to hand off a rockin’ ring to Gen! Oh and his ring… I was thinking the whole time, ‘can I have one?’ hahaha, so many people just had to get a closer look! Kev, you’re super talented!

So, they love each other. And beyond all of the terrific details lays this passion and love that has stood the test of time (childhood couple, for real) and they celebrated with a bang! I can’t articulate what they have. I don’t want to ruin it. But if you’re ever in Yaletown and see them together, you’ll just know that connections like theirs are what good books are made of. Their live out great lives and I have to admit, I truly respect them. You’ll get a closer glimpse into their day in time but for now here’s a tiny squeak, 

enjoy!

 

He actually had a full round of gorgeous diamonds on the inside!!

 

 

 

 

Gen and Kev, you make people happy. So many people love you. You both are incredible.

*I forgot to add. There was a mystery photographer who was trying to get a piece of the action during the receiving line at Christ Church Cathedral… if anyone knows who that was, we’re interested to know. But if it was you and you’re reading this, we would appreciate it if you were to make sure that permission is asked before you decide to take shots. We’re not scary people and we like helping out, but just don’t be weird and shoot literally behind our backs. Be cool.

Connie and James

Connie and James are cool. Doing their shoot felt like hanging out with friends. What we love about them is that they’re so full of life and super down to earth. Shooting their session was a breeze… they are so great together! They gave us so many levels, from striking that pose to a larger than life smile that often turned in to a ginormous burst of laughter, it was gold! We found it quite apparent from their playfulness that within their relationship, they have a strong friendship. Whether it be playing video games or just plain joking around, they are sure to entertain. What more can you say about fun-loving personalities… you just like being around them. =)

Take a look:

 

 

 

 

Connie and James, we’re incredibly happy for you both. Continue to see life together as an adventure and keep the laughter coming. Its an honor and privilege to marry your best friend and it looks like you guys get to enjoy that blessing.

Cecilia and John

John and Cecilia are a fantastic couple. They are so much fun and their personalities are really friendly and warm. I know John from a while back – A WHILE BACK. We grew up together. His younger sister, Liz was my best friend growing up and John was always off playing basketball while we sometimes played in his room (not a secret anymore!). Both Ral and were super excited to come out and shoot this session. This was a great time for us to hang out with them (long overdue) and get to know the new addition to the family, Cecilia – she’s fabulous! She worked it like a model and made me proud! There was this freshness and kind nature that just exuded during our shoot. =)

Here’s a tiny glimpse:

 


 

 

JB and Cee, we’re immensely happy for you both and are looking forward to quite an amazing wedding day. Keep up the fun and laughs that you so easily share and enjoy this couple of weeks that you still have as fiance(e). Oooh, so exciting…

The Office In Our Office!

 

We haven’t had much time to blog (sorry!) but we’ve wanted to give you guys some quick & weekly personal updates that make us smile! 

Anyone that really knows us knows that we are die hard fans of the show, “The Office” and so what better than to have 2 of our most favorite characters in our office! Enter, Michael and Dwight! Julie and Juan, from “the amazingly hot Julie and Juan” (also huge Office fans) have become good friends and gave these amazing bobble heads to us as a gift! 

 

 

 

I asked Ral to help me out with a witty “that’s what she said” ending. Unfortunately, he said he didn’t have time, but the next time I ask he said he would think a lot longer and harder.

New & Improved!

Moving into our home came with a lot of work that needed to be done and we’ve been slowly getting to each room (but our yard is quite a beast to be tackled). We actually moved in during a weekend where we had to shoot 2 weddings and the busy schedule has pretty much been steady ever since. Our home needed some love and so I wanted to show you guys some of our latest developments thus far. This was actually our office before but since it was such a good space to relax, we need to move our office to another room and make this our official meeting space. We’re trying to work on each room as much as we can but for such a space, time is not really on our side. We’ll try to blog our latest developments but here’s where this room is at thus far!

 

 

(just realized the Apple TV is supposed to be on the top cubby of the TV but is MIA… hmmm, probably Ral. Anyway, if you don’t have it – get it! we looove it!!)

 

If you have any suggestions or would like to help us show some love to our home (gardeners, anyone?) please let us know!
