Waiting for Christmas.....

It was always so hard for me to wait for Christmas. The smell of goodies baking, the Christmas music, decorating the tree...but, waiting for Christmas day was always the hardest. There is nothing like the joy of Christmas day...I see it all again in my children's eyes, it is so fun to watch them create their own Christmas memories.

David and I are preparing for our final wedding shoot of the's on boxing day...what fun! We are looking so forward to spending that beautiful day with our final bride and groom of the year. We'll keep you updated as best as we can over the Christmas holidays. We would also like to thank all of our brides and grooms for 2009...we had so much fun getting to know you all a wee bit better! A great big thank you to all of our faithful clients who come back year after year to work with us...we had a great year in 2009 and are looking very forward to new things and some changes too for James Design Studios in 2010!

Best Wishes for your Christmas and New Year!

Stefaine and Drew Get Married!

Stefanie and Drew Congratulations on your wedding! It was a beautiful day in Edmonton...yes, It was a little on the cold side (apparently this was the second coldest place on the planet)...but like the great Canadian's that they are....they didn't mind braving the cold for a few outdoor photos....Wow! you two were amazing!

I must admit I was a little worried about the weather and lack of light on this day but we went with it and I am thrilled with how their pictures turned out! A great big Thank You goes out to Vic and the staff at Lillo's on Whyte for allowing us to use their fine music store after hours to get some unique shots. We thought Lillo's would make for some really neat photos since Drew is the lead guitar player for the band Define the Line you can check them out at

I am so happy that the weather didn't stop I know -40 weddings are a possibility for sure!

If you've stopped by for a peek at Stef and Drew....leave us a little comment so we know you've come by! Enjoy!

Sam and Zach's E-Session

Sam and Zach...what can I say! David and I had a wonderful time with you two...we went to meet up with this couple the day of the shoot not knowing that David knows fun was that. I was about to introduce people and David and Zach start calling out to one another..." are you?"...This really is a small world!
Anyway, we had so much fun on this cold, cold day! They were up for itand so were we...all outdoor photos and no complaints about thefreezing cold weather! I love Edmontonians!! Check them out!

Just a peek at Stefanie and Drew

Wow...-40 never looked so good! Here is one of my fav's from yesterday's wedding. It was so cold and yes, they did brave the weather for a few outdoor shots...more to come!

Loretta and Jason...Married!

Loretta and Jason Congratulations! Wow...this wedding was on one of the coldest days here in Edmonton but that didn't stop this happy couple from enjoying every moment together. David and I had so much fun coming up with creative spots to take photos and I must say...well done to Loretta and her bridesmaids who didn't complain once outside in the cold to get a few snowy pictures! Oh and a huge Thank you goes out to the Edmonton Public Library for allowing us to take some fun pictures inside with all the books!
