Congrats C and M !!!!!!!!

So I get a phone call from a friend of mine not too long ago. It turns out that she is engaged to the love of her life and now wants to have some pics done. She asked me if I would be willing to take her pictures. Of course I said: "Yes I would be honored to take your pictures."

We met at the Nisku Inn and decided to take most of the pics at the little waterfall that they have in their lobby area. It was a nice little place and I was so happy for them. They are just so happy together.

Congrats C and M !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

R.I.P Fort Hotel

Well, at 2:30pm today I was out for a walk with two of my monkeys when I get a message from a friend of mine. He informed me that the historical Fort Hotel was on fire and burning down. As me, Sydney and Jacob were out and still about 4 blocks away from the house, I asked him to make sure and let me know because if it was, I was going down to get some pics. He never got back to me, so I just went down as soon as I got home from the walk.

Now for those of you that don't live here or just don't know what hotel I am talking about, I will tell you. The Fort Hotel is one of two hotels in the downtown core of Fort Saskatchewan, and it is the oldest hotel in Fort Saskatchewan. It was originally built in 1890 and was called the Queen’s Hotel. In 1913 it burnt down as it was only built of wood. The hotel was rebuilt out of brick and back open for business later that year. The name was changed to the Fort Hotel in 1933 as has been that way ever since.

When I was 19 and me and Jenn (my wife) had just gotten together, I started to work there as a doorman/security. As well, I remember going there and attending many a party after work at my current job.

The Fort Hotel will be missed by the entire community.

POOK shoot

While we were out finishing our Christmas shopping at West Edmonton mall, we went to the POOK kiosk to see what they had. Low and behold who happened to be there but Tony Pook himself, the inventor of the POOK TOQUE and other POOK accessories. Some of you may remember him from the CBC show DRAGON'S DEN. They were on season 4 episode 11. You can watch the episode at the following link:

While we were talking to him we happened to mention that we were starting to break into the professional photography world and if he needed any photos taken then to give us a call. What happened next made me and Jenn almost go speechless. He hired us on the spot to take photos of his new store that he had just opened in Edmonton's City Center mall. We took the job and here is some of what we gave him.

It was interesting doing commercial photography for the first time. Isaac took the pictures and Jenn directed the shoot, and we think everything turned out pretty well. Another feather in the cap for Fire & Ice!

Family Ties, Knots, And Other Such Stuff....

My sister asked me to do a few pics for her, my neice Kayleigh, and boyfriend Shawn, and how could I say no? So I shot them in my basement, and the pics turned out great. Here's a look....

My neice is such a photogenic kid, but not much for posing, so I told her to just be crazy and this is what I got......

Did I mention that this wonderful family is now being "officially" blended? Shannon and Shawn are now officially engaged, and I couldn't be happier for them, and for Kayleigh. What a beautiful family!
