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!

Daffodil Ball | Canadian Cancer Society | Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Let’s start by saying we love working with the organizing committee of the Daffodil Ball and the Canadian Cancer Society. They are some seriously lovely people! The Daffodil Ball has pretty much become an annual tradition for the Butter Studios Team. One that we look forward to every year! We anticipated this year’s ball to be a beautiful one and no the planning team did not disappoint! Mr. Todd Talbot was the emcee this year. We do get to photograph him at quite a few events, and man he does a great job every time! Can’t say enough about what a great organization and as tough as it is to have this disease affect so many people. People that we know… care about.. there is some peace in knowing that there are genuinely caring people behind the scenes of the CCS organization working tirelessly on raising funds, building awareness, providing resources for those affected by cancer. Congratulations on another wonderful gala and we look forward to the 2018 edition!


Nordstrom Vancouver | Grand Opening Gala | Event Highlight

Butter Studios had the pleasure of capturing the Nordstrom Vancouver grand opening week’s festivities as Nordstrom’s house photographers. The celebrations started off with their opening gala where all proceeds benefited the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre Foundation, Covenant House Vancouver, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Our team was on-site to capture all of the main events including the Red Carpet Arrivals, VIP Cocktail Reception, Fashion Show and the Main Store Gala! There was literally fun at every section of the event. The fashion show has been regarded as the best fashion show Vancouver has ever had! There was a lot of buzz and excitement all night long. Special appearances were made of course! Gracing the red carpet were: Zachary Quinto, Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, Amber Valletta, Diana Bang, Sofia Boutella, Camille Belle, Nira Arora, Jackie Kai Ellis, Jillian Harris, Jason Sarai, Tamara Taggert, and more!

As if it wasn’t enough of an honour to be commissioned to capture this event, some of our photos also made it onto the offical Vogue Magazine website!

If you haven’t stopped by the store yet, it is an amazing store and really had the best grand opening of the year! We captured thousands of photos so it was really, REALLY hard to select under a hundred photos to highlight the event on this post so hopefully you can feel the excitement through our selections below! If you had your photo taken by our team and are looking for it, check out our Facebook page HERE!

Thank you Nordstrom Vancouver for letting us be a part of this great day in the company! ‪#‎nordstromvan‬
