Candy Cane Gala | Calgary Photographer02.22.12

Early last year I was honoured to be asked by one of my clients to shoot pictures at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Candy Cane gala in December.  I do not typically shoot events like this as I am not equipped with a lot of portal flash equipment so I was a little leery.  When she went on to say how she knew I would capture the little ones faces and their excitement at this event I was sold.  Yes, the children get to attend this gala.  HOW FUN!  I then met with organizing committee at the foundation, only to learn that this was a huge event with 1300 people and with a goal of raising $750,000…yikes!  I needed to recruit – Jess and I would not be enough:)  So I passed along names of a couple of amazing event and wedding photographers Bill Marsh and Mark Wikkerink and was thrilled when they both generously donated their time as well.  It was an AMAZING event and the foundation raised almost $900,000 this year!  A wonderful evening for the children, their parents and the foundation.  I highly recommend it as a charitable event – it was a spectacular event focussed on fun for the children, in support of an amazing resource we have in Calgary. Here are a few of our images from the evening:)
