Chris & Meagan | Sneak Peek August 24, 2008

Filed under: Wedding — chantelklassen @ 2:17 pm

Well, yesterday was Saturday so guess where I was -shooting a wedding! Yesterday was Chris and Meagan’s big day. They got married at the Saskatoon Inn and the day went very smoothly, the girls were ready about an hour and a half before the ceremony -believe me, that never happens!

I always enjoy weddings where I get to feel like “part of the group”, this was one of those weddings. It is great because I often get asked, “So, how do you know (insert name here)?” People often think that I knew the couple before hand, and I think that is an awesome thing. That means that I am doing my job and connecting with the couples that I am photographing. I also think that it helps that I usually get to do an engagement session with the couples before hand, it helps us get to know each other a little more before the big day. I find it also helps to put the bride at ease because I can become another familiar face instead of just “the photographer”.

Chris and Meagan, thanks for letting me be a part of your day yesterday. Here is your first sneak peek:

I really like this one:

Look at these stunning blue eyes!

Meagan has a very unique ring, I really like it:

I think this is my favorite that I have edited so far:

I will put part two of your sneak peek up in a couple of days. Be sure to leave me a comment! I hope you have a safe trip!


Trash the Dress/Bridal/Day After Sessions | Book Now! August 22, 2008

Filed under: News — chantelklassen @ 9:58 am

I have had some interest from brides in these sessions so I am going to give you all a few more details!

First of all, they are all open to interpretation . . .

Trash the Dress, well, you don’t actually have to trash it. If you want to trash it, I’ll definitely photograph it. If you don’t want to trash it, it is basically considered a Day After session. These sessions involve your husband and we get to go to places we never got to on your wedding date! We could go for an urban session (down town, braodway, etc), beach session (takes place down by the river, really cool to get in the water if you want to trash your dress), the possibilities are really endless. That explains TTD and Day After.

Bridal sessions are of just the bride. I know some brides like to do this prior to their wedding (often on the day they go for their hair trial), and they they frame a large picture to display at their wedding. They are also a good way to focus on you and get some pictures that you may feel too busy to get on your wedding date. If you are already married, no big deal, you can still do these after the wedding!

I hope that clears that up a little! Sessions are $300 ($200 if you were/are going to be one of my 2008 brides). Here is what comes in the session package:

* 10 – 5 x 7 prints

* 2 – 8 x 10 prints

* Session Storyboard

* Session DVD (this only includes the images I have taken, if you want to get the images I have edited onto DVD please contact me for more details)

* Online viewing gallery

If you are interested in this please contact me soon. September is almost upon us and I don’t have many dates available in September!

Here is a shot from a bridal session I did back in May:


Newborn Photography August 21, 2008

Filed under: News — chantelklassen @ 8:55 am

In the next couple of weeks my wedding season will be slowing down quite a bit. I have been thinking about getting into newborn photography for quite a while now and decided that this is the perfect time!

So, to start my newborn portfolio I am looking for people who just had a baby or are due in the next while and I will be giving a way free sessions! If time allows I may even offer a free maternity session. While I know most people that frequent my blog are not in this stage of life, chances are you know someone who is, so pass it on. With a free session, what do they have to lose?

This picture of Lily was taken back in July when she was three months, she is the youngest that I have photographed to date (isn’t she adorable?):

I just also want to let everyone know that there will be some big changes coming soon so be sure to check back to see what they are!

Also, I will be starting up some contests and such soon but you have to come back to find out what I have come up with!


Levi & Tawnya | E-Session August 20, 2008

Filed under: Engagement — chantelklassen @ 6:54 am

Last night I went out and photographed Levi and Tawnya’s engagement session and I think it is my favorite e-session to date! Levi is actually from Osler and they are currently living here so we drove around town and the country side to find some great locations. Since we stuck so close to home I ended up getting quite a few more shots than I normally do (there is an idea to keep in mind for the rest of you, if you want more pictures come visit me in rural Saskatchewan)! Not only did we go to some great locations, we also had gorgeous lighting, it does not get any better than that!

This will probably be my longest engagement session sneak peek, and this is after I narrowed down the images a few times.

How sweet is this field?!:

I love the photo on the right:

I love Tawnya’s expression in the picture on the left, it made me laugh out loud when I saw it:

Of course the ring shot:

The photo on the left is their “modelesque” pose, love it!

Thanks guys for being such great models! I had a great time and can’t wait to shoot your wedding on New Years Eve!


Mike & Soraya | Part Two August 19, 2008

Filed under: Wedding — chantelklassen @ 8:47 am

Alright, it has been a long time coming but I am finally finished the second part to Mike and Soraya’s wedding!

A few of the bridal party got creative:

I love this shot because if you notice most of the groomsmen are looking to the left of the picture, that is where Mike is standing, I think they are checking to make sure they are doing okay:

The girls had to try it too, I’ll have to admit, it did take a little longer, but they did end up getting it in the end.

And the last photo for this post:
