We’re Rob + Lauren, and we’re super excited that you’re here! We’re a portrait photography team from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We love shooting happy portraits of super fun people. Families, newborns, couples, and individual folks—we adore it all.
Yesterday we had the wonderful opportunity to chill with 10 uber cool photographers! While we were all chatting in the morning I had a perfect view out the window of the blizzard that had taken over the city. But I knew that wasn’t going to stop us, and we were going to shoot no matter what! So everyone bundled up, and followed us out to an industrial area for some fun. To be honest, Rob and I were pretty worried as we were driving out there, and figured our shoot would be cut short. But we were having way too much fun, and were getting some mind-blowing shots, that I think we ended up shooting for well over an hour and a half in blizzard conditions!
Before I continue it’s essential that I give a huuuuuuge shout out to our models, Andrea and Mike. They drove all the way from Red Deer to hang out with us, and we truly couldn’t have had a better couple to work with! They were probably freezing cold the whole time, but never showed us anything but pure enthusiasm. We were so honored to create these images for them!
Check out the snow!!! In a normal situation we probably would have resheduled, but I’m SO pumped that we didn’t because it adds such a killer element to the photos.
To get this shot I made all 10 photographer tramp through huge amounts of mud. We were all pretty dirty after that, but I maintain that it was TOTALLYWORTHIT.
Again, we can’t thank Andrea and Mike enough for their amazing model skillz. They totally made our day!
And to all our Chill Session participants, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an amazing day. You guys were fantastic!!!
Romy and Joyce are such a fantastic couple, we’re pretty much out of our minds with excitement for their wedding next weekend! The weather was really trying to prevent us from shooting their e-session (we were rained out one day, and when we were shooting these images we were nearly frozen and actually saw some snow!). But that didn’t stop the four of us from having so much fun, and getting some amazing shots. I’m so excited for this season to start, we’re loving spending time with all our couples!
Here are some of the shots we got with them. We also did a concept shoot that I’ll be sharing in a little while, once I’ve had time to fully process them all!
I love the light we found here! So nifty. This totally reminds me of a couple of secret agents, lol.
Romy is a fantastic photographer in his own right, and was able to borrow a 4x5 field camera for us to play with!! What an amazing piece of equipment! We’d never seen one before, and it was soooo cool! I guess you could call this shot a meta-photo, couldn’t you?
Hope you all have a killer weekend! Our Chill Session is tomorrow so check back in on Monday for some shots from that!
Lauren here. I’m slowly recovering from my wisdom teeth removal and have enough energy to post up a few photos for you!
Rob has been patiently looking after me for the past few days, and as glamorous as that sounds, I’m sure it’s actually very boring. So he called up a friend of his and then went out yesterday to take some photos. I was expecting them to return with some shots of trees and grass and other such things they generally shoot. But it seems as though they found something a little more interesting. They found a ton of dirtbikers and off-roaders having a blast at a dirt hill near our house! Here are some of Rob’s shots from the adventure.
This is Drew, a photo buddy of ours.
They even took Rob and Drew for a ride on this crazy Tom Car thing!
Happy Monday everyone! We haven’t had a wedding the past couple of weekends, but I thought I’d share some Monday morning photos with you anyway!
It’s not easy to get us to go out and shoot in the snow for extended periods of time. We really hate the cold! Combine that with the need to manipulate small buttons on the camera and it’s just all sorts of annoying. But Jen & Wade were awesome enough to convince us to go out! We found a perfect winter day to shoot with them, and had way too much fun!
P.S. I’m getting my wisdom teeth out on Wednesday, so emails might slow down a little bit while I’m recovering!
So our Chill Session is now all booked up! Yay! Thanks to everyone who is coming, we’re going to have a blast together!
If you were interested in the Chill Session but the date didn’t work for you, or it booked up before you could reserve your spot, get in touch with us now. We might do another one soon if there’s enough interest!
Well, we finally got our butts in gear and have decided on a date for our next Chill Session! Here are the deets:
When: Sunday, April 26, 2009
Where: Our home on the south side of Edmonton
What: A day of learning and shooting with Rob & Lauren. This time we’ll be focusing heavily on live shooting and post processing, with lots of one-on-one time!
Included: Snackies, bevvies, and din din
Cost: $250 + GST
We will be limiting the session to 10 people, and I have a feeling it will book up rather quickly, so get in touch with me right away (lauren [at] robandlauren [dot] ca) if you’re interested. I’ll send you an email with all the details of what we’ll be talking about, and how to book your spot!
NOTE: As of Wednesday morning there are only 3 spots left! So if you’re wanting to come get in touch ASAP!
And a lovely little shot from our last Chill Session:
Something a bit different for you all today! I have been going through all of our photos from our trip last year to finally choose some for a portfolio. It was quite the experience, revisiting that trip, and has made me get all itchy to go travel again! Don’t worry though, we won’t be running off to Tibet any time soon. We’ve got a full year of weddings ahead of us!
But I thought I’d share a couple I edited this morning. If you’d like to see a few more check out The Wedding Travelers.
Both of these were taken in Varanasi, on the holy Ganges river.
Hooray for Monday! Isn’t this a lovely little way to brighten up the beginning of your week? I sure hope so!
So, Saturday was a beautiful day, as far as March in Edmonton goes! It did get a bit nippy, but these wonderful people braved the cold, and about 8 flights of stairs (even though I told them it was only 4) to create some amazing images with us. Can’t wait to show you all the rest!
As many of you likely know, last year we embarked on a journey that we called The Wedding Travelers. It was a 3 month trip around South East Asia and India that we chronicled on a blog. It’s almost exactly a year since we returned, but we are always thinking about it. With amazing timing, a contest popped up called The Photoblog Awards. I thought The Wedding Travelers was the perfect thing to submit. We’d love if you’d take a few minutes this weekend to vote for us! Just go to this link:
I believe you might need to set up an account. It will take a few minutes, but we’d really, truly appreciate it. This project is very close to our hearts, and we are hoping to continue to work on it in the very near future.
o it seems as though we’ve got an interesting pattern emerging here! Last week I shared some engagement photos right before the wedding, and the same thing is happening today! April and Sheldon are getting married this weekend! We met up with them last fall for some fun and photos, and I’m just getting around to blogging them now. Based on these photos, I’m pretty sure we’re going to have an awesome time shooting their wedding!
And to all those begging for more photos of the past two weddings we’ve shot, don’t worry, they will come!
