Northern Pixel Photography

Here is our Northern Pixel Photography year in review blog post from another fantastic year – it was our busiest year so far with weddings in Prince George, Smithers, and Banff. It was also a year of firsts for us, with our first fashion photoshoots, as well as our first After Wedding Sessions – one at Moraine Lake near Banff, and one at the Ancient Forest near Prince George. These are some of our favourite photos taken thoughout our amazing year. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make it our best year yet!

We love to travel and take every opportunity to photograph new and exciting places. It was our best year for travelling so far… with a romantic mountain wedding in Banff at the Mount Norquay Resort, two weddings in Smithers, and an anniversary trip to our favourite tropical getaway -the beautiful island of Maui.

Auroras and Moonrise – Prince George BC

It’s been some time since I’ve had a chance to go out and photograph the night sky, so it was pretty exciting to see that we had some clear nights coming up. Fall is one of my favourite times of year, since the skies are getting darker but it’s still warm enough to be out taking night photos. I headed out north of town expecting to get some good star photos, but wasn’t expecting the auroras. But what a fantastic night it was! I stayed out taking photos until the moon came up and the fog got too thick. Here are some of my favourite photos from my night out watching the auroras dance above the lake, and my first time-lapse video. Here is the link to watch in HD on Vimeo: Aurora Borealis and Moonrise by Dan Stanyer

Thanks for viewing – Dan

Vikki & Jonathan’s Jasper Engagement Session

It was very exciting news to hear that Vikki & Jonathan had gotten engaged, and it was even more exciting that they wanted to do their engagement session in Jasper. There are so many amazing locations in that area to choose from. They wanted something with the mountain rocks and beautiful mountain lakes, so right away we thought of Horseshoe Lake just south of Jasper. Vikki got her hair and makeup done at the Wild Orchid Salon & Spa. After hair & makeup we headed down to Horseshoe lake together, with the mandatory tourist stop to look at the wildlife along the highway. Vikki had never been to Jasper before, so every turn along the highway brought a new and exciting view. It’s such a breathtaking location that we tend to take for granted since it’s so close to home.

If you haven’t been to Horseshoe Lake we would definitely recommend checking it out the next time you are near Jasper. It’s a short hike from the parking lot to the lake, and when you get to the cliffs above the lake the view is simply spectacular. The colour of the lake such an amazing shade of blue, and the water is so crystal clear you can see the rocks far below the surface. It’s unlike any other place we have seen. Such a beautiful place for an engagement session!

From there we made a short drive over to Athabasca falls. We’ve always wanted to photograph a couple in the rocky canyon where the old river bed used to be. The textures and light helped make a perfect evening for their engagement session. And of course Vikki & Jonathan are such an incredibly cute couple, it was so much fun hanging out with them for the evening and getting to know them better. We really enjoyed our trip, and can’t wait until their wedding next summer.

By the time we got back to Jasper it was starting to get dark, and everyone was quite hungry. Thin-crust pizza is one of Vikki’s favourites, so after talking about our delicious lunch we decided to head back to Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria together for dinner. We each tried a different kind, and everyone agreed it was a perfect end to the day.

Sonja & Cody’s Engagement Session

We met Sonja and Cody on a beautiful spring evening at the lake for their engagement session near Prince George BC. The sun was shining, and the lake was calm… except for the occasional loon or duck swimming by. It couldn’t have been a more perfect evening! We started out with a few photos on the dock, before taking a stroll along the lakeside trail through the forest. Even the light coming through the trees was just as we always hope for. Shauna took some close-up portraits, while Dan hiked to a different vantage point along shoreline for some wide-angle landscape portraits. It was a fantastic session, and we can’t wait until their lakeside wedding this summer. Here are some of our favourites…

Fashion Portrait Session

Catching up on some blogging today, so here’s another fashion portrait session in Prince George BC. These are some of our favourite types of session, and it’s always a pleasure to work with the amazingly talented Laura Heagy for the hair & makeup. Caitlyn and her sister Trinity both came in for a studio session at the Picture Box Studio in downtown Prince George. Caitlyn is an aspiring actress, and wanted some more photos for her portfolio. Here are some of our favourites… Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Fashion Photography - Prince George BC Thanks for visiting our blog.

Fashion Photography Prince George BC

Here are some of our favourite photos from our latest fashion photoshoot in Prince George BC, this time with two models who both wanted some photos for an upcoming modelling convention in Vancouver. TJ wanted two separate looks to get even more variety for her portfolio, so we did a more editorial look with lots of movement and jumping for the first look, and then a softer prettier 20’s inspired style for the second look. We definitely made use of our collection of vintage dresses, jewellery, and props for this session. And we finally got to make use of one of our fur capelets. The girls had so much fun looking through the rack and choosing their favourites. And Laura really outdid herself with the amazing hair and makeup.
