Christina and Friends

Last week we spent an afternoon with Christina and all of her wonderful adopted dogs. Each of her furry friends have such terrific personalities and it was honestly a treat to be a witness to the lovely bond she has with each of the dogs. We’re pretty sure she’d fit in perfectly here with us since pretty much any conversation we have that isn’t about photography has to do with dogs.

By the way, Christina’s a volunteer with Help Orphan Puppies, a rescue organization that is dedicated entirely to (as the name implies) helping puppies. If you’re interested in adopting or fostering a puppy in need, please check out their website and Facebook page.

Happy Birthday!

Saturday we took advantage of the beautiful sunny day to grab some photos of a very special birthday.

It’s likely you’ve seen this lovely German shepherd scattered throughout our portfolio. Uschi is a working guide dog and last Friday just happened to be her sixth birthday! When we heard about the little party her handler was throwing her we couldn’t resist helping memorialize the event with some photos.

Uschi wasn’t entirely cooperative, but it was her party after all. She was still enough for us to capture her with her cute birthday tiara and she was utterly fascinated by the soap bubbles her handler was creating with a toy gun. There was a bit of a breeze, so the balloons really didn’t get as featured as we’d have liked. But we expect to try again next year.

It’s #TongueOutTuesday!

It’s no secret we’re animal lovers here at ICGOLD Photography. We won’t go so far as to admit we’ve spent many hours reminiscing about our furry loved ones, but it’s a fairly common subject. In fact, it was through this common interest that we found our office assistant because she came to us for holiday card portraits!

So, what’s #TongueOutTuesday? It’s a hashtag on social media (most specifically Instagram) where people share photos of their dogs with their tongues out because, well, why not? So, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite tongues:

You can see more in the pets section of our portfolio.

Free Prints

The year seems to be flying by us. We’re already booking up through the holiday season. Honestly, it has us in a bit of a panic thinking about the all the upcoming holidays that somehow manage to sneak up on us.

All of that did get us thinking about giving something to all of you, though. So, we’re running a promotion!

Congratulations to Jonathan and Linnea! And best wishes for a life together filled with happiness and love.

We had such a wonderful time working with this lovely couple and are so pleased to have been part of their wedding day. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Maple Ski Ridge, where the wedding party and guests had the option of taking the chair lifts up to the venue!

You can check out more photos from the day in our wedding section:

Congratulations, Crystal!

Due to a few technical issues this is a bit delayed in being posted, but nonetheless we wanted to express our deepest congratulations to Crystal and her family on the birth of her new baby girl!

Portrait collage

We managed to just squeeze in our session just before the end of her pregnancy and had a blast hanging out with her and her family.

All of us at ICGOLD Photography would like to wish a very happy birthday to our lead photographer, Cindy! And we sincerely hope all the snow we recently had won’t keep her from enjoying her day.

Happy Holidays!

From all of us at ICGOLD Photography we want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season! We’ll see you in the new year; we have some very exciting news to share as well as many fun things planned.

New Design

Phew! Well, that turned into a bit more than “a few hours” being down for maintenance. Turns out that more was funky with the backend of the site than we initially thought and, well, we won’t bore you with the technical drivel because the point is we’re back! And we have a brand new design without all those pesky glitches that were making things run slow and strange.

All the old links still work, but we have a few new features you may have noticed. Most specifically we added some stuff to the footer to help in navigating through the site quickly and also link you to all our social networks around the web! You can also quickly see any of our recent additions to our portfolio and if all else fails there’s a trusty search box.

Here on the blog we cleaned up some of the typography issues we were battling with our old design and removed the clutter on our sidebar.

Anyway, we hope you all enjoy the new and improved ICGOLD Photography! And, of course, happy holidays!

Website Maintenance

We’ll be taking the site down today while we do some virtual housekeeping. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we don’t anticipate being down for more than a few hours — and we have some fun surprises in store when we return, too!

Thanks for your patience and understanding. We’ll see you all soon!
