Wedding, Boudoir, & Commercial Photography
We are a nationally accredited, incorporated Photography company in Edmonton Alberta, established in 2008. We specialize in modern, contemporary Portrait Photography as well as vivid, marketable Commercial Photography. We work with clients from our photography studio in Edmonton, as well as internationally for commercial photography projects.
The style of images that we produce are distinctive, clean, and modern and have high visual impact. This “Ad look” style of photography is what we have become known for.
Originating in Commercial Photography, our company has gained valuable experience producing marketable photography used by international companies for Ad Campaigns, Product Packaging and Marketing.
Our commercial work has brought us to shooting locations ranging from the mountains of Canada , the beaches of Jamaica and the Nevada desert. After developing our style of Photography and Commercial Photography Portfolio, we have since expanded our work to offer modern Boudoir and Wedding Photography as well as Lifestyle Portrait Photography and Model Portfolio building for our clients.
“Photography is our life and we are very passionate about what we do. Regardless of what type of photography our client is having us produce, our main objective is always to over-deliver. We always strive for the best possible quality that almost always exceeds their expectations.
Whether you are a company looking to work together in a corporate ad campaign, an aspiring model wishing to develop their portfolio book, or a bride or parent wanting to create a collection of very special Bridal Boudoir or Family Portrait images to cherish forever, we would be very proud to work with you to produce the photography that you are looking for.”
The sensual appeal of boudoir photography is again growing in popularity.
Boudoir photography is an artistic style that features elegant, provocative and sensual pictures of a single female subject – although boudoir photo sessions for couples are becoming a popular way for couples to connect. Throughout history, boudoir artists and photographers have been fascinated with capturing a woman’s natural beauty and sensuality when she is ‘at home’ and Chris is no exception. Currently, women of all ages and from all of life’s avenues trust our studio to shoot their photos in a way that highlights their true selves. Working together with Kimber, his wife and creative director, means that the atmosphere in the photography studio is comfortable and cordial for everyone.
Chris and Kimber offer boudoir sessions for women celebrating any of life’s milestones: wedding and engagement, pregnancy, birthday, fitness goals, recovery from illness, or ‘just because’. With Kimber’s direction and Chris’ technical, artistic, and post-production skills, boudoir subjects feel a rapport with the camera, resulting in beautiful, crisp, ad-quality prints to display privately or to give as gifts.
The goal of boudoir portraiture is not to create a canned ‘fake sexual’ look, but instead to encourage women to bare their true sensual selves for Chris’ camera. Makeup and hair styling are available for an additional fee and is a lovely way to feel pampered and ready for your session.
Visit or call our studio to meet with Chris and Kimber and discuss how to plan your boudoir shoot.
Some of the greatest images of our time were created in order to sell a product.
Unlike artistic photography, commercial photography is carefully designed to engage as many consumers as possible through through the visual elements of the company’s message and brand. Chris’ technical and artistic skills are what provide happy clients with crisp, polished display-ready commercial prints.
In order to maximize time and budget, an initial meeting with your executive and advertising team will fully engage the creative process and ensure that there is clear communication for key elements of the shoot. Professional photographers can always provide valuable input regarding logistics of the shoot and other elements specific to the industry and as a professional in the field, Chris is no exception.
The consultation phase of a project will define a concept that will translate well into a visual message.
A request for quote will outline a tentative timeline and costs involved in your shoot. Chris’ team will ask valuable questions in regard to pre production elements like lighting and mood, color treatment, makeup and hair styles, models selection, and camera angles. In later meetings, Chris’ team will map out casting, scheduling, contingencies, post-production procedures, and invoicing to ensure your team feels comfortable and confident with the commercial photography process. Shooting can be arranged in studio or on location.
