Mike and Ashley were the winning bidders for a gift certificate we donated to a silent auction fundraiser. They wanted some relaxed and natural portraits of the two of them together. Jason met them on a beautiful day and had a great time photographing them!

Inspiring Revival Arts portraits.
Stephanie grew up in Abbotsford and booked a couples portrait session for her and her new husband, Adam, when they came to visit over Christmas. She had some great ideas with a classic lighting but modern feel. Jason started with Annie Leibovitz’s portrait of Kate Winslet + Sam Mendes as a starting point. [link] Here are a few favorites from the session:
Kate + Neil had a couples photography session with us the day after they arrived in Canada. They live in Australia and will be getting married next weekend. They wanted something fun, hot and west coast. We came up with the idea of using a waterfall Jason shot at when he was taking a class from Ken Pugh. The location is absolutely gorgeous. A bit of west coast, waterfall heaven. Here are a few of our favorites …
We met Alexia + Kevin at Stanley Park in Vancouver for their engagement photography session. Their wedding is going to be on the east coast later this year and they wanted some west coast pictures done before then. We had a great time wandering around the beautiful park in the drizzling rain which is a must for genuine west coast photos. Here are a few of our favorites …
The weather is beautiful now and is the greenest time of the year in the Fraser Valley to do photography. Jason met Erin + Jerome at Harrison Hot Springs for a relaxed and fun engagement session. We’re looking forward to photographing their wedding later on this year. Here are a few of our favorites from their engagement photography session …
Cheryl and Kenton called us up and booked a session after seeing our photography on their friend’s wall. As much as we love photographing kids, we look forward to couple sessions as we know couples allow us more time to experiment than 2 year olds.
We were extra excited for this session as Cheryl and Kenton live in my favorite part of Abbotsford … waaay down Mt. Lehman Road. The area is now an eclectic mix of rolling farm land, old barns and huge executive homes. Jason’s been eyeing the hazelnut farm for years and finally got to use it. Here are a few of our favorite photographs from the session …
Jason had a wonderful surprise today when two large trophies and three ribbons from his latest entries in the Professional Photographer’s Association of British Columbia (PPABC) Exhibition and Salon were dropped off at our house. This year’s competition received 322 entries and the association represents about 300 of the best photographers in the province. Each picture is rated Not Accepted, Accepted, Merit, or Excellence. The top scoring photograph in each class, wins Best in Class.
Here are Jason Brown’s winning entries …

Merit/Best in Class – Portrait of 1 or 2 People
We were excited to hear that Tiffany was engaged as we photographed her family’s portrait a few months ago and thought the whole family was super nice. When we met Anthony we were impressed because he’s super nice too. We’re excited to photograph their wedding in 2009.
Jason recently met Tiffany and Anthony at their 1950’s house for an engagement portrait session. Jason fell in love with their house and is now dreaming of living in a similar place as we are fans of modern, clean design. We hear they have more plans for the place and are looking forward to seeing what they have up their sleeves.
Here are a few favorites …
If you’re wondering what the significance is of the Shreddies box, there is a story behind it. Tiffany had been looking for her diamond in her Shreddies box ever since there was a diamond Shreddies campaign. One day, when she was least expecting it while they were rushing to catch a flight, she reached into the Shreddies box and pulled out her diamond. Awwwww.
Yesterday turned out to be a fun and exciting birthday for Jason. He started off by sleeping in and then spending the morning on a date with his vintage film cameras. We’ll post the pics when they get back from the lab. It’s different having to wait over a week to see the pictures. Digital has turned us into ADHD photographers.
Jason then photographed the new mayor of Abbotsford, the City of Abbotsford’s council and the directors. Then we dashed off to New Westminster to attend the Professional Photographers Association of British Columbia (PPABC) Lower Mainland Region’s Christmas dinner. We arrived just as they were announcing the winners. He ended up having three photographs win awards including one which was Best Overall Entry which means it was the judges favorite in the entire competition. Yay!
These photos will be displayed in our hall of competition prints and we’ll have to find a spot to display the award as well. Next time you’re at the studio you can oooh and ahhh over them. It does wonders for Jason’s artist ego.
Here they are and what they won …
Best Overall Entry / Best of Class
Best in Class
We look forward to receiving the judges comments as Jason’s work isn’t classic photography and often receives varying responses from the judges. Art is so subjective which keeps our life interesting.
