Rebecca Wellman Photography - The Blog

I have been drawn to, and have had a great love of photography and the arts ever since I can remember.

I shoot family lifestyle portraits as well as editorial food and commercial subjects. I also take on a limited number of weddings per year.

This blog consists of a combination of personal life, client shoots
and random thoughts and muses. So, enjoy it...leave comments....and
come back often.

TOFINO FOOD AND WINE FEST 2014

I think this was my 10th year at this favourite annual event. The food this year was outstanding. The wine? Same. And this year, we switched up our own venue, so our transport, instead of walking, became a fleet of Electras! Beach biking, delicious cocktails, and the sweetest little Island town.

Chris

I am not normally one to write much on my blog posts, nor am I one to often post my photo sessions of families (except my own), as they are not my ‘specialty’. I am a commercial food photographer first and foremost, but sometimes, I make exceptions. This family is one I make an exception for.

I met Chris when I started mentoring her in photography. I watched her work hard, set realistic goals, and begin her own business. She has since flourished in the field of newborn photography, something she is comfortable and familiar with, having had rocked three babies of her own.

Over the past couple of years, I  have watched her littles grow, have gotten to know her better, and have become rather fond of her and her sweet family.

Family photos with little kids is nothing if not…fast. Kids wear down, become shy, tired, hungry and fully DONE in no time.  And so, we spent less than an hour, on a beautiful night, with flowers and grass and kids. And here’s what we captured:

Quadra Island in the Spring

Rain, sun, trees, oysters (so many oysters). Campfires, card games, bikes, food. My regular instalments of Quadra Island adventures are quickly becoming some of my favourite stories. This time, I packed as much as possible into 1.75 days. And it was worth every second of travel.

Tofino Food and Wine Fest 2013

Anyone who knows me, or who follows my blog, knows that a gaggle of girlfriends gets together to go to Tofino every year, where I shoot the Tofino Food and Wine Fest, and take a good solid crack at fitting in all the imbibing, outrageous shenanigans and ridiculous laughs that I could possibly fit into 3 days. Beach time, good food, and the never-ending aforementioned laughs are all showcased below. And seeing as we all know that old adage that refers to photos and a thousand words, I will say no more, and allow the pictures to do the talking…

Katie and Grant

Their story is a good one.

And  through multiple channels, over the years, I have gotten to know these two. So, when they asked me to shoot their backyard wedding, how could I not?

They are beautiful. On the inside as well as the outside. Cliche, I know, these are two of the sweetest, loveliest people.

Grant – openhearted, generous, truly kind.  Katie – funny, giving, passionate, loving.

It is a pleasure to be around them, and to have shared their monumental day, along with their friends and family.

Lots of love to you guys!! xo

And now, for a commercial break

Behind the scenes and busy days, I’ve acquired quite the collection of commercial images. In fact, it’s been so long since I’ve shared them, that some of these folks have moved on to other projects! Still, here is an update…

Lots of these shots were taken for EAT Magazine, who I’ve been working for since 2007, and some were companies who hired me specifically for their own ad campaigns.

Birthday Boy

Because it was Nelson’s birthday, and because I cannot seem to put my camera down this weekend, and because it’s been too long since I’ve blogged a dinner party, I bring you this. It’s these evenings. With my camera. Holding memories. It’s these times. It’s these I love.
