Inspiration Gala | BC Cancer Society | Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

As you may know, the Butter Studios event photography has the honour to cover some the city’s best and grandest fundraiser/luxury galas! We of course love to document even more! That’s why it was a real pleasure to be covering the BC Cancer’s Inspiration Gala for our first time. Besides being introduced to such a lovely team to work with, we got to cover a beautiful and very well-organized event! From working with the event chair: news anchor Tamara Taggert, to the silent auction, to the beautiful decor, to the itinerary jam packed with great moments, it was a lot of fun for our team to cover.

We thank the team for commissioning us to cover this event and we look forward to many more in the future!


Comic Vision | Foundation for Fighting Blindness | The Imperial | Vancouver Event Photographers

We had a great time covering the Comic Vision event held by the Foundation for Fighting Blindness! What a fun night for a great cause. Can I throw in a dad joke? There was definite FUN at this FUNDRAISER! Sorry… I just had to.

The Butter Studios team was on site to provide the fun with our portrait station coupled with our popular Fuschia sparkle sequin backdrop. Oh yeaaah! You can’t call it a Comic vision without some hilarious comedians performing on stage as well. Pleasure to see comedian Ivan Decker on stage, causing some hysterical laughter from the crowd.

Good times and more good times. Check out a few highlights below!

McArthur Glen Designer Outlet | Vancouver Airport YVR | Event

Despite a typical rainy Vancouver Winter day, we still had fun capturing the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet (YVR) Christmas festivities including tons of stuff for the kids to do and also the Christmas tree lighting! We look forward to this year’s celebration and if you haven’t checked out the outlet stores yet, make sure you do! McArthur Glen is known for their world class outlet malls all around the world!


Prép Beauty Parlour | Grand Opening | Vancouver Event

Loads of fun hanging and celebrating with Mika and her fabulous team at the Prep Beauty Parlour grand opening event! We were hired to set up our famous photo station (a cross between a portrait studio and a photo booth) to provide some of the entertainment at their event. Guests just killed it with their funnest, sassiest, and hilarious poses. And of course, they got to take an instant high quality print home with them as well. In short, our photo station rocks and every event should have us there! :)

But back to the important stuff… a huuuuuuge congratulations to Mika on the all new Prep Beauty Parlour! Thanks for having Team Butter there!

Christian Louboutin Event at Nordstrom Vancouver

Previously we had the wonderful opportunity of photographing Anna Wintour’s visit to Vancouver. This time around we were lucky enough to be invited by Nordstrom Vancouver to capture the fun at Monsieur Christian Louboutin’s meet and greet event at their beautiful store. Guests got to meet with the fashion icon and receive an autograph on their new Louboutin handbag or shoes. Lots of fun once again at Nordstrom and we can not wait until the next surprise guest!

Night of a Thousand Stars Gala | Vancouver | Event Photography

We had fun photographing the 20th anniversary of the Night of a Thousand Stars Gala held by the VGH/UBC Hospital Foundation at the Vancouver Convention Centre this past Winter. An event with over 900 guests, this definitely wasn’t a small affair. Hosted by Chris Gailus, news anchor for Global BC, The silent auction, dinner, live bidding auction all contributed to a successful $3.3 million raised that will go towards a hybrid operating room at the Vancouver General Hospital that will contain sophisticated radiological imaging equipment. This eliminates the need to transport patients to a different location for imaging, which saves critical time. The funds will also go towards other urgently needed equipment at VGH, UBC Hospital, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre and Community Health Services across Vancouver.

Congratulations to the gala committee and the unsung heroes behind the scenes that organized and made this event a HUGE success!

Photographer Photo Station | Ledcor | Corporate Event | Holiday Party

Taking a quick break from posting photo shoots today and just wanted to show some of the fun that many companies have had this past holiday season with the Butter Studios Photographer Photo Station. We have had the pleasure of providing our enclosed photo booth service to Ledcor’s holiday staff party in the past. This year, we decided to go with our super duper photographer photo station. Just as fun as the photo booth with the addition of a professional photographer on-site, exclusive access to our studio-style premium backdrops, e-mail kiosk where guests can email the photo immediately and event faster turnaround time for high quality prints on-site (printed in SECONDS!!!). Our photographer gets your guests REALLY into it as you can see from a few of our favourites from this party below. What a fun group!

Photo Station booking rate starts at $800.00 for 2 hours and includes: photographer, instant prints, custom logo/layout, premium backdrop, online gallery and download link for photos.

Sarah McLachlan School of Music | Donor Event Reception | Vancouver Event Photographers

A bit late in posting this one but a little while ago, we had the pleasure of joining Sarah McLachlan at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music in Vancouver for their donor appreciation gala. For those of you who haven’t heard, this talented artist, who has won two grammys and four juno awards, and a very lovely person might I add, created a school that provides top quality music instruction at no cost in a safe and nurturing environment for at-risk children, youth and adults. This amazing initiative offers all kinds of musical classes like guitar, music and video production, beatboxing, deejaying, piano, percussion, and much more. It would be hard for this diverse school to operate without the help of its generous donors. We had the opportunity to capture the fun and entertainment from the students at the school’s donor appreciation gala. Sarah was an amazing hostess for the evening and it really was our pleasure for us to capture the event in its entirety. Congratulations to Sarah and her wonderful admin team and instructors on their success and care in the community!


LIDO by Bosa Properties | Rooftop Garden | Vancouver Event Photography

Welcome to the first harvest of the season BBQ event at LIDO by Bosa Properties in beautiful Vancouver! Could it get better than this to live and harvest your own fruits, vegetables and herbs in one building! LOVE this green initiative and hope every new building built comes with a communal garden on the roof.


Anna Wintour Visits Nordstrom Vancouver

We had a lot of fun photographing a private event at Nordstrom Vancouver with a special guest of honour… Vogue Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief: Anna Wintour.

I can’t explain how amazing the event went. Of course, it went by quickly when you have a fashion industry icon visiting Vancouver for the first time and your team has been chosen to photograph the event!

You may have seen this photo taken by yours truly already floating around the Internet, at The Vancouver Sun, Calgary Herald, Edmonton Journal and more. Well… here it is again from the studio that made it happen!

Thank you to Nordstrom for another fantastic event. This really is an awesome company!
