Over a score of Ottawa’s photographer community gathered at the launch of Liz Bradley’s new business venture Halftone Media . The launch was organized by Amy Karlin hosted at Luxe Bridal Boutique among all the beautiful wedding dresses and treated with candies by Geek Sweats.
Liz is a wedding, portrait and pet photographer in Ottawa. She also has a talent for graphic arts and designing albums. She decided to turn this love of graphic arts into a service for other photographers so that they could concentrate on what they do best – shooting and editing. The evening was the official launch of the business to the photographer community. Liz had several albums on display to highlight her excellent work. The reaction from the photographers was enthusiastic with many looking forward to using her services. Congratulations, Liz!
I chatted with many of the photographers finding out how the wedding season was going, the prospects for next year and what trends they were noticing. I find that people in the wedding industry are very passionate about what they do. It is energizing to be among such creative people such as Brian Hargreaves, Andrew Van Beek, Melanie Rebane, Dawn Oosterhoff, Amy Symes, Julie Butler, Amna Hakim, Shannon Kennedy, Natalie Bertrand, Jen Howard, Natalie Lyle and Vanessa Dewson. At events like these, we share stories and find out how we can help each other out. Later, when we meet at a wedding, we are not strangers, but friends trying to do our best for the bride and groom.
