Client: Sun Peaks Resort - Mountain Life

Tourism Sun Peaks and I had been chatting for quite a while about the content in this shoot; we just needed the weather to cooperate!  Sometimes winter shoots aren't all that easy to schedule for this reason alone.  Add family schedules into the mix and it gets even more difficult.  I had brought up the topic of expansive village shots at night to Jennifer a[...]
