EGHA vs Harbin Sport School

EGHA vs Harbin Sport School

Earlier this month I was given the opportunity to capture game action between the Edmonton Girls Hockey Association (EGHA) and Harbin (China) Sport School in exhibition hockey. EGHA would have the PeeWee Swarm, Bantam Sabres and Bantam Inferno take on the young Chinese hockey team who were also involved in attending Wickfest, the Canada vs United States women's hockey game and various hockey sessions such as skating with Serdanchy Power Skating in Edmonton. 

Harbin is located approximately 1,200 kilometres north east of Bejing in the Heilongjang province.  The capital city of the province is home to 10,500,000 people with hockey becoming a growing interest in the area.  There is a good relationship between Canada and China in terms of hockey development with various Chinese teams training and playing games in Canada to develop their hockey skills for events as big as the Olympic games and international junior hockey tournaments. There are multiple news stories about the game of hockey growing throughout China, moving from something people did on frozen lakes, to now most large cities having multiple hockey rinks like the 14 spread out across Beijing accommodating 2,500 hockey players. The 2022 winter Olympics are right around the corner and China is looking to groom skilled hockey players for the event. The National Hockey League held their first ever games in China this season, as the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings played a couple of exhibition games in September. 

 

It was amazing to be a part of the exhibition series and capture the joy of amateur hockey at a grass roots level. Skill development and knowledge of the game are two things that are at the forefront of coaches minds at this level of hockey, but the passion and excitement for the game is as high as it is in any level of hockey I've seen.  

Below are some of the images from the exhibition games between EGHA and Harbin. More photos can be found in our Sports gallery and the EGHA gallery on our site.

Ashley & Ross | Engagement

We are only twelve days away from Ashley and Ross' wedding and we could not be more excited for this beautiful couple. Last summer was their engagement shoot and we felt like it was a great time showcase their photos since our blog started in the fall. The colourful canola field near Beaumont was the perfect backdrop for this fun loving couple. 

In less then two weeks we get to capture these two saying their vows in front of friends and family in Macklin, Saskatchewan. A prairie winter setting is going to be perfect for photos in their hometown with the rolling hills and wide open spaces.  

Congratulations Ashley and Ross!

Nicole & John

We were happy and grateful to spend Canada Day, Friday July 1, with Nicole and John as they said their vows in Vermilion, Alberta in a wedding full of love, laughter and fun. 

The church and the banquet hall were packed with friends and family, both young and old, joining this awesome couple in a fun filled celebration. Bride and groom games, stories, an amazing slideshow of the couple that had the entire hall in tears from laughing and a shot-ski to allow for group shots were an amazing way to allow their friends and family to see what a loving couple Nicole and John are.  

A wedding day can be long and exhausting for a bride and groom but Nicole and John are a photographer's dream as the fun loving couple gave us free reign to capture the mood, excitement and fun.

We want to give Nicole and John a HUGE congratulations on their big day and we hope that there are many more slideshow worthy moments for this couple in their future!

Sweet 'Evie' Girls' 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Sweet 'Evie' Girls' 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Cake Smash's are SO much fun!  Capturing this milestone is one of my favorite shoots to do, I mean, who doesn't like watching a little one get to dig right into a cake?! I love their curiosity - their facial expressions as the session progresses - and most of all - once they discover the sweetness of the cake, the pure messiness that is inevitable!  

Meeting Evangeline - 'Evie' - to do just that was a highlight of my week.  Evies' family is originally from Fort McMurray, but are currently relocated due to the wildfire situation.  Thankfully their house is still standing, just waiting for the logistics side of things before they can head back home.  So, it was simply a pleasure to be able to fit this shoot in - something to smile about amongst what I can imagine has been chaos for them.  I am so happy this family still chose to capture this milestone for Evie -- She is just the absolute sweetest little thing with the biggest blue eyes and a cheeky smile.  This was the first time doing a cake smash first thing in the morning - but it worked so well.  Once the cake hit her lips - it was game over!  Between her mouth and her feet - (there must be something about the feeling of icing between her little toes that she loved) - head to toe - she didn't hold back! * gotta love it*   - such a fun and sweet session for a fun and sweet girl!  Happy 1st birthday Evangeline!!!
