Courtney approached us about wanting some fabulous images for her Miss Manitoba World 2017 Portfolio.

We stepped away from our usual Vintage Styling, and instead applied our lighting expertise to a modern styled session.

You will see both a variety of Studio pics in assorted lighting, plus some beautiful outdoor shots in scenic Ste. Anne.

We started off the session with the Classic white backgrounds, in order to really highlight this beautiful dresscourtesy of Christies Bridal in Steinbach.

Courtney had a few options in choosing her dress from Christies Bridal – and I think she found the perfect selection.

That colour really suited her, and just “pops” on the white background.

I have to also mention how naturally beautiful Courtney looked for her shoot.

Her stunning Professional Makeup was styled courtesy of Swank.Style, in Winnipeg –  a part of the Aura Hair Group.

In this session, I switched up the backgrounds (white/grey/black/outdoors), which you will notice gives a different “feel” to each group of images.

I have known Courtney for about 3 years now, and I think Manitoba couldn’t have a better representative for this pageant.

She has a natural beauty that shines in all her photos.

Courtney has the brains to equal her beauty. She will be entering her fourth and final year in Mechanical Engineering.

I love this image – as it reminds me of a portrait that should be hanging in Buckingham Palace.

Courtney looks so radiant and regal at the same time.

In getting to know her over the past few years, I have found her to be the most mature and reliable model I have ever worked with. 

If she says she is going to do something, then I know it will be done. A rare trait these days.

Two more images with the black background, however I added a Fashion/Glamour look to the first image by way of photoshop.

Though we are known as a Premier Studio for Vintage Styled Sessions – I think you can agree that we are also capable of delivering outstanding Portrait and Glamour/Fashion styled images.

From my experience with Film Noir lighting, I came up with these Dynamically lit Portraits. Each has it’s own “feel”.

If you pay careful attention to the two photos, you can see how the subtle changes in lighting and expression give a different mood to each.

The first shot is almost all in darkness, and is a very quiet and soulful moment. Courtney and her Crown.

The second photo has an added hair light and fill light, and she is now smiling, which together gives it a bit more dynamic energy.

If you are looking for a Portrait Photographer that PAYS ATTENTION TO DETAIL – then we are your studio!

Yes, I switched gears again for a bit of experimental fashion photography.

These have a very warm vintage look to the photos. By the way – the yellow lights WERE NOT added in photoshop.

These were done by having lights hanging in front of Courtney while I photographed her.

I wanted to capture a unique photograph of Courtney and her Crown in quiet solace.

The images of her standing alone with her crown were the First Set – and these are a Second Set.

I added a unique concept with the vintage mirror and just loved how it turned out.

As an Individual or a Business, I can provide Premium Photography for personal or commercial portfolios – I think this session says it all!

We had a beautiful day outside and just had to take advantage of the sun and scenic surroundings of Ste. Anne.

These locations are a mere 60 second drive from my studio.

As such – we can offer a client a stunning Studio or Outdoor Session OR BOTH!

All potential clients are looking for VALUE in their Photography. This often means trying to find the cheapest pricing for a photo shoot.

Nothing worse then paying even a cheap price, and then being disappointed with your photos, and possibly having to get them done again by someone else.

I feel my studio OFFERS VALUE by way of QUALITY of images, and not quantity per dollar.

If you want to be “WOWED” by your final photos – then Vintage And Vogue Photography should be your First Choice.

This is another ASSURANCE OF QUALITY and High Standards in my images as well as Business Practices.

A few final images of Courtney in some Dynamic Studio Portraits for her Miss Manitoba World Photo Shoot.

Love how I was able to capture her in deep thought – just her and her Crown.

Courtney’s next step in her Miss Manitoba World  journey is the Miss Canada World Pageant held in Toronto this coming July.

Should be an exciting event and I want to wish Courtney all the happiness and luck for the future.

Such a talented and intelligent woman – I think Manitoba has the ideal representative in Courtney
