I had a very busy weekend. This Saturday I photographed a wedding in Calgary and on Sunday and Monday I photographed a hockey tournament in Airdrie. Hockey photos soon to come but for now enjoy some wedding photographs :)
Some of you may remember an engagement photo shoot that I did with Bic and Ken on October 7th, 2009. The bride and girls were getting ready at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary and the ceremony was also at the same hotel. The Fairmont Palliser Hotel is great for weddings, its so beautiful!

We got very lucky with the weather for this wedding, it was sunny and not too cold. The wedding party was great and we spent some time outside taking some great shots!

For the reception we headed to the Regency Palace restaurant in downtown Calgary. I shot a few weddings there and it was always great!

2009-12-29 08:21 Tracy B: Loos Great Sergei! I think my favourite is the guys walking together ;) This wedding had great details (and you captured them great too!)
2009-12-29 08:16 Ekaterina: Another beautiful wedding!! I just love-love-love your ring shots! The wedding party colours remind me of something ;)

Yesterday evening we spent some time at the Festival of Lights here in Airdrie.

I spent yesterday's evening with my wife and a couple of our friend at the Calgary Zoo enjoying the Zoolights. The weather was great and we had a wonderful time! Seeing that many Christmas lights in one place somehow makes me feel more Christmasy :) If you didn't go yet, I recommend it!

2010-01-01 11:58 Stacey: I LOVE this photo of you guys :) Happy New Year from Saskatoon!
2009-12-17 13:31 Sergei Belski: Yes Greg, you are amazing! Thank you for taking this photo of Tracy and I :)
2009-12-17 12:36 Greg Plesche: I took that picture. Am I good or what? Ok so it wasn't my camera and I didn't adjust the settings but I did press the shutter button!
2009-12-17 10:07 Tracy B!: Aren't we the cutest?! Love you ;)

Calgary Zoo is one of my favourite places for wedding photographs, but this morning I spent some time at the Zoo taking photographs of animals :)

2009-12-17 08:56 Sergei Belski: Thank you! I'm not sure about babies, I saw two parents for a bit and than they hid underground so if they do have babies they are underground. I use my 400 everyday.. if not outside than for decoration in my studio :)
2009-12-17 08:49 Greg Plesche: Sergei, I liked the swift fox shot. Are the babies still around as that looks like a pic of one of the parents. Good to see you dusted off the 400 and actually used it again.
2009-12-16 06:07 Svetlana Yanova: Beautiful photos, Sergei, love the colors!
2009-12-15 17:53 Sergei Belski: I love my 400mm f2.8L :)
2009-12-15 17:50 Ekaterina: Beautiful bokeh!

Just took a photo of our house. It is pretty much a tradition of mine to take this photo every year. This is number 3 with this house. You can see previous photos from 2008 and from 2007 . This year I parked my Vespa in front of our garage. With weather being -26C it took me about 20 tries but I did start it :)

2009-12-17 16:34 Ekaterina: Sounds like you are set for at least another two years ;)
2009-12-15 17:52 Sergei Belski: And notice that every year its getting smaller and smaller, I'm thinking next year maybe a bicycle? :) We still have Tracy's Toyota Prius, so maybe that :)
2009-12-15 17:48 Ekaterina: every year it's a new vehicle too ;)

I don't really remember when I first saw a Panerai watch for the fist time, but I know that the first time I saw it, I loved it! There is something about Panerai watches, they are timeless, historic, and beautiful, and now The Luminor Marina Panerai Automatic is on my wrist :) Here are some shots of the watch I took earlier today.

Last year I did a photo shoot of the Zoolights event for the Calgary Zoo and today one of the photographs that I took was featured on the USA Today website. I thought it was pretty cool that they write about Calgary :) You can see some more photographs from that photo shoot at Calgary Zoo on December 28, 2008 in my Blog Archive.

I was scheduled to photograph a hockey game and a couple of volleyball games this weekend but because of the crazy weather we have in Calgary they were all cancelled. I did have a great weekend with Tracy! Today a couple of our friends, Tracy and I bundled up to brave the weather and spent some time at the Heritage Park. I haven't been there for years so it was great to visit it :) I should for sure do an engagement or wedding photo shoot there in the spring or summer!

2009-12-30 15:32 Tracy B: Wow, I look warm!

Here are a few photographs that I took for the City of Airdrie's Genesis Place. I spent a day at the center photographing different activities that you can do. I'm still amazed that we have such a great place in a relatively small city!
