Miranda Blue Olive Photography News 2 Comments

We just got back into town after a whirlwind 4 day East Indian wedding in Alberta. I can’t wait to sort some of the pictures and show you what we got. The wedding was wonderful and the outfits as usual were to die for. Pictures soon!

In other news, I am so excited to share with you that we’re moving! As of September 1st our studio will be located in an amazing commercial loft in a historic building in the heart of Gastown. This move will give us a lot more space for displaying and sharing our work with everyone, for our client meetings, and for all the production work we do to put the final touches on each individual image. With tasty hardwood floors, wood beams, an original brick exterior wall, and views of the ocean and mountains, it will be a much nicer place for our clients to visit, too. Plans are also already in the works to bring people in for our first Blue Olive appreciation party at the end of the year! Stay tuned for details and we’ll look forward to welcoming you into our new studio starting in September.

On that note, we anticipate no major interruptions in our availability over the next few weeks and will continue meeting with clients through the transition to our new space. Of course, we’ll have to ask that you excuse any boxes during the move!

Birth Photography

Miranda Families & Baby Photography 2 Comments

My passion for photography comes from being given the opportunity to document some of the most important moments in the lives of my clients. I repeat over and over again to people who ask why I do it that I know what my parent’s wedding photos look like and I know what my grandparent’s do, too. I have glimpses of their childhoods through photos and I have record of mine. It’s powerful, powerful stuff.

While snapshots are important, I know that through my camera I can capture stunning artistic images that both capture the essence of the people I’m shooting and that will stand the test of time. Images that my clients proudly hang on their walls and display in their albums.

And, on that note, more often than not I am able to capture images and moments that otherwise would have never been captured.

A few weeks ago I posted the maternity pictures of Stacy who was due with her first baby last week. And, last Thursday, I had the honour of attending and documenting the home birth of her very beautiful baby girl.

These are images that would have never been captured if not for my presence. They are also images that will be cherished for the entire lives of this new family. They are true photojournalism at its finest, and I still cry everytime I see them.

With the blessing of the family I am sharing the slideshow for those of you who would like to see it. It’s been edited for modesty, but it’s still a birth and there are some very graphic frames so some may choose not to view it.

Dana & Glenis get Hitched

Miranda Wedding Photography 1 Comment

Dana and Glenis were married yesterday!

We had such a fabulous time with these two. Rather than be swayed by traditional venues and timelines, Dana & Glenis chose to have an afternoon reception at Wild Rice. With the whole place for themselves and the most amazing hors d’oeuvres and tasting dishes coming around one after the other, everyone had a fantastic time.

Afterwards they changed into their party clothes and headed over to the Republic where Dana DJs each week for drinks with friends.

To the Theatre!

Robyn & Chris were married last weekend and wanted something a little different for some of their images – they wanted them done in a theatre!

We were able to arrange it with the Abby Arts Centre in Abbotsford and so we headed out to get creative. There are so many more from the wedding that I look forward to sharing once we’re done processing them, but I wanted to get a few of the theatre ones up for you to see now.

Dana & Glenis will be getting married later this month and we recently spent some time in Gastown for their engagement session.

Not ones to be wooed by the traditional wedding venues, we’ll be heading out for dinner to Wild Rice before hitting Shine Night Club for some dancing!

Can’t wait to see what else they have planned – and to share some of the pictures here!
