Today my little girl said “Daddy’s photos are in another magazine” in her own toddler baby-babble and smiles <3

I am so proud to announce that I have been published in RealWeddings magazine for the third time!  It is very competitive to get in since there are only a couple of major wedding magazines in Western Canada and they only publish a select few weddings twice a year.

Lauren & David’s Painted Rock Winery was glamorously styled by the wonderful Yuriko Larson of Vintage Origami and planned perfectly by Laura Lebbon of English Rose Weddings .  There are so many other wonderful vendors to name, but to find out all the special details you will have to pick the magazine of the shelves at your local store.  Also, look out for my full blog post of this wedding in the Fall.

Bohemian Beauty Lifestyle Portraits on Longbeach, Tofino – Spring Lookbook for Goldsmith Matti Martin

May 5th, 2015

When our friend Matti Martin found out that we were going to be staying in Tofino, he asked if he could send us some of his gorgeous modern jewellery to photograph for the launch of a new collection.  Although Matti Martin is based out of Winnipeg, MB, he was previously based in Kelowna where we were fortunate to have met him and get acquainted with his stunning work.  Matti LOVES the West Coast and has wonderful memories of camping on Long Beach and waking up on grey misty mornings to the crashing of waves, cozied up with a freshly brewed cup of coffee.  We took his inspiration and created a collection of images that showcases his gorgeous organic jewellery amidst the calming colours and ambiance of the West Coast.

During the 5 days we spent in Victoria before travelling to Tofino, we sought out the perfect West Coast clothing and accessories.  Initially we contacted models, but Matti insisted that my beautiful wife, Katherine, was the perfect look for the job and I agree!  The very talented Rhonda from Studio One Tofino offered to do hair and makeup.  She even agreed to be involved as a 2nd model – yay!  During the week we were in Tofino, the rain only stopped once and we rushed out to find the perfect landscape of mist and crashing surf.

Matti’s jewellery is organic and natural, reminiscent of the stones polished by the crashing waves. His goldsmithing is where these pieces really shine with architectural designs and creative finishing techniques featuring natural gemstones including Tibetan turquoise, blue chalcedony, rose cut sapphire, and diamonds.  His attention to detail completes the finished look and makes these pieces something to treasure!  Be sure to check out his shop located at 159 Lilac St. in Winnipeg and visit his work on Website, Facebook Page, Twitter, and Instagram.

Paris in the Springtime: Day 3 – Excursion to Château de Versailles

On the third day we headed out of the city by train and went to Château de Versailles.  We were prepared to spend the whole day there since you would typically need several days to tour this immense château and gardens.  When we arrived at the golden gates of Versailles there was the longest line-up to get into the Palace, so we immediately headed to the 800 hectares of gardens.  As we walked past the crowds and the view opened, we both stood awe struck at how immense and opulent Versailles is.

Below: The Orangerie (yes, those are orange trees!) and Pièce d’Eau des Suisses in the background (a manmade lake which used to supply water for the many fountains throughout Versailles.

From the palace looking down is the Bassin de Latone (Latona fountain) and the Grand Canal in the background.

Looking back, the Bassin de Latone in the foreground with the palace in the background.

And the beginning of the many, many gardens of Versailles.

Below: The Grand Canal – the largest body of water at Versailles.  Not only did it function as a place for boating parties, it also served as a reservoir for draining the water from all the fountains and pumped it back.  Beauty and function.  And yes, we did take one of the wooden row boats out on the canal – how could we resist?

We rowed all the way to a remote part of the canal where we got out and ate our picnic amongst some forgotten ruins and pretty wildflowers.

After we returned our boat we headed over to the Petit Trianon, which was a “little” retreat château used by Marie Antoinette (and royal women before her) to escape life at court.  It takes about 20 minutes to walk to from the palace and is a great place to escape the crowds.

Below is the French Pavillon which sits within view of the Petit Trianon and was used as a place for garden lunches.  We immediately loved it.

We then continued walking until we came upon the Grand Trianon which was commissioned by King Louis XIV as a retreat to escape life at the palace.

Wandering back in search of Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet we saw some beautiful things along the way:

On the way to the hamlet, we stopped by The Temple of Love which was commissioned by Marie Antoinette and sits on an artificial island within the gardens of the Petit Trianon.  The statue in the centre is the God of Love which is seen carving a bow from Hercules’ club.

Versailles-France-chateau-wedding-photographer_1078_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeVersailles-France-chateau-wedding-photographer_1080_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

Alas, we come to Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet.  Built as a working farm complete with farmhouse, a dairy, a mill, a dovecote (where they housed pigeons or doves), a barn, a tower, The Queen’s House, a boudoir (Marie’s private bedroom), and many cottages complete with gardens.  The whole hamlet is done in a rustic style based on a Normandy village; however the interiors are extremely decadent.  We loved walking around the hamlet and it reminded us of a centuries old Disneyland – all the buildings seemed miniature and everything had a sort of fake façade all set among an idyllic setting.

Below is the Tour de Malborough (built to resemble a lighthouse) and the magical talking catfish in the manmade lake.

We then headed back to the Palace of Versailles to wander through more gardens and take in the overwhelming beauty before saying farewell.

Paris in the Springtime
Day 1 & 2: Jetlagged and wandering the streets

May 2nd, 2012

So we went to Paris…exactly a year ago.  I know it’s slightly ridiculous that it’s taken this long to get our images up, but as soon as we arrived home last year we were in wedding season full force and put our own projects on the side.  As May 1st approached this year, we found […]

 

So we went to Paris…exactly a year ago.  I know it’s slightly ridiculous that it’s taken this long to get our images up, but as soon as we arrived home last year we were in wedding season full force and put our own projects on the side.  As May 1st approached this year, we found time to take a look back at all our images and relive those amazing memories.  Although I’ve been to Europe before, Katherine hasn’t, but this was my first time in France.  Paris seemed like a great place to take a much needed holiday and conveniently it aligned with Katherine’s 30th birthday and what better place to celebrate such a milestone.

Since my schedule is typically jam packed, she organized everything; all I had to do was pack my bags.  My biggest dilemma was what camera and lenses to bring which I mulled over obsessively.  Here is what I ended up taking: Nikon D3S body, 50mm f1.8 (of course), 45mm tilt-shift (for surreal dreaminess), 14-24mm f2.8 (to get the full scope of all that amazing architecture), vintage 35-70mm f2.8 (for all around street shooting), 70-200mm f2.8 VR (for beautiful portraits and as an expensive binocular).  A little overboard?  Perhaps, but I didn’t want to have any regrets.  My equipment traveled with me in a compact backpack made specifically for cameras and I never felt my equipment was going to be ripped off except for that one time when in a more seedy part of Paris a guy jokingly “pretended” to grab my camera.  A little obnoxious, but harmless overall.  With a body as beefy as the D3S, you don’t blend in and have to come to the realization that people will occasionally stare.

Over the course of the next two weeks, we will be posting highlights from our France adventure from Paris to Provence so stop by to get a little Old World love.  Without further adieu, welcome to our first two days in Paris, France.  Jetlagged, disorientated, hardly knowing the French language (yes, we’re Canadians, but we’re born and bred West Coasters!), and coming all the way from Kelowna, BC we arrived on May 1st, 2011 (which was Labor Day/May Day – an official holiday in France).

P.S. – To have the full experience, go onto YouTube and play the music soundtrack from the movie Amelie as you read this post.

Once we landed we took a taxi from Charles de Gaulle Airport to our home-base in Paris: The Gentle Gourmet Bed & Breakfast.  This is an all vegan bed and breakfast that focuses on gourmet, organic, and seasonally inspired food which is in a great part of town very close to the Champs-Élysées.  This was a no-brainer and major score as we are both vegan.  We had no problems eating vegan in Paris – there was tons of restaurants to choose from, so don’t let anyone tell you you’ll starve!  Our hosts, Deborah, Paul,  Alexander, and Caroline were AMAZING and fed us the best food while we stayed there.  We look forward to going back to Paris just to visit them!  Please note that as of May 1st, 2012 they are closing their B&B and opening a café/restaurant, called the The Gentle Gourmet Café close to the Bastille Opera House where they will be serving phenomenal vegan food, including vegan pastries!  Yum.

When we arrived they had vegan brunch prepared for us and we ate looking out their very Parisian 1930s Art Deco apartment windows seen below.

After brunch we napped and then headed out to wander the streets.  We saw so many young people making out in public and we later learned that this is a cultural norm; however, once you hit a certain age it’s a faux pas.

And then we came across Le Eiffel Tower in all her glory.

Day 2: We took the underground tunnel from the Champs-Élysées to access the Arc de Triomphe (because crossing the roundabout would be a suicide mission).  The Arc de Triomphe is a Roman-style monument commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon to honour French armed forces.  It’s big, beautiful, and took a long time to build.

Then we caught a bus to head to Cathédrale de Notre-Dame, but ended up in a totally different part of town and had to backtrack, but the bus driver was super nice and pointed to where we had to jump out.  Merci Beaucoup!

We visited La Conciergerie which is a 14th century Gothic building and was a former prison which held thousands of people (including Marie Antoinette) before they were sent to be guillotined.  This building definitely has some eerie vibes.  We admired the architecture a bit and then were ready to leave.

Below are images from Cathédrale de Notre-Dame which is probably the most famous Gothic Cathedral in the world.  Unfortunately, we were too late to climb the 387 stairs to reach the top, but we did manage to catch a bit of a sermon that we didn’t understand, but sounded beautiful.

There are tons of these love padlocks on many of the bridges in Paris – they represent a couples everlasting love together…awww.

Katherine with Abercrombie –
a rescued wild Okanagan horse for adoption

December 19th, 2011

It all started with a little idea to capture some images of ourselves with horses in a dreamy winter landscape.  Once we found Project Equus of Critteraid – an organization dedicated to helping the wild horses of British Columbia, we knew we had to somehow photograph these beautiful animals to bring more awareness to them. Many individuals have no idea there are even wild horses in the Okanagan.  They also don’t know that many were rounded up and sent to auctions (mostly sold for meat) by the government. Thankfully, Project Equus stepped in and many of them have since been rescued. On this photoshoot, we featured the beautiful young horse Abercrombie, who is up for adoption, for anyone interested!  After months of gathering props to style the shoot, we set out to put our idea in motion.

Katherine’s elegant & ethereal hair was styled by Giselle Gaspar from Mirror Mirror Salon & Spa, and the luminous & stunning makeup artistry was by Cheri Chung.  Please enjoy a few of the images I captured of Abercrombie and my beautiful wife, Katherine Jassmann Trowbridge from the shoot.

Keep posted for more images coming soon of the two of us which were shot by Kait Dean, who recently from the digital photography program that I manage at the Centre for Arts and Technology. We absolutely LOVE her editorial-style work and look forward to seeing some of the images she captured a the shoot.
