Ribbon cutting held to celebrate opening of photography studio

Mayor cuts the ribbon for new business, flanked by business owners and town councillors.

Photos were taken at the latest ribbon cutting, with photos also being what the business is all about.

Canadian Captures Photography officially opened its storefront location at 65 Sandwich St. North, in the addition along the St. Arnaud St. side of the building. It’s the latest step in the photographic journey of owner Crystal Laing.

“I have been doing photography for 16 years,” said Laing. “I absolutely love it.”

Laing has been doing mainly family and baby photography but stated she plans on branching out into more business photography and head shots. She was pleased with the turnout of friends, family, council members and town officials at last Thursday morning’s ribbon cutting ceremony.

“I love you guys,” she said. “I appreciate you guys.”

Laing said the business has grown and she now needs the storefront location as opposed to doing it out of her Amherstburg home. She joked that having three teenage daughters helped with the decision to move out of her home.

Laing added the higher ceilings in her new locations allows her to do more things and add more services.

“I really wanted to expand and fulfill my potential,” said Laing.

Mayor Michael Prue said anytime a new business opens, it is a big deal.

“We’re all out here to celebrate what is happening in town and this new photography studio,” he said. “This is an exciting event.”

Calling photography a fine art, Prue said Canada has had several famous photographers over the years. He thanked Laing for opening her business in Amherstburg.

“I wish her much success,” the mayor stated. “Maybe one day she’ll have whole series of shops.”
