Collaboration is and always will be the driving force behind how we do business, and sometimes, a really great collaboration is worth taking to the next level. With that said, we couldn’t be more pleased to announce that we have officially joined forces with our good friends at Leblond Studio, in a move that will allow the studio to leverage and enhance their capabilities and give us the opportunity to provide a seamless additional service to our clients. That, friends, is what’s known as a win-win.

Following his investment in Leblond Studio, our Managing Partner, Dustin Westling, CSEP, is now Executive Vice President of Leblond Studio, a culmination to a close working relationship that has been built over the past decade. 

“Leblond Studio has been OneWest’s photographer of choice since 2009,” says Dustin. “I’ve worked with Stephanie for over 10 years on countless projects, and this is a natural next step and addition to my portfolio.”

Stephanie Leblond, President and Founder of Leblond Studio, concurs, saying, “Dustin and I have been working side-by-side as event colleagues for 10 years. Welcoming Dustin to the Leblond Studio team means more growth opportunities for the studio, such as new creative projects and partnerships. It also means being equipped, as we grow, to keep delivering on our promise of excellence to our clients who’ve been with us, some of them for nearly 15 years.”

Leblond Studio will be taking up residence at OneWest HQ, where we’ll be working together more closely than ever to ensure that we always offer our clients a full range of expert event services. In teaming up, we aim to answer the increasing demand in the Canadian events industry – both from local clients, and from global clients of Alberta’s and BC’s growing destination events markets – for integrated agencies that offer more services.

As always, the best partnerships are built on a foundation of not only a natural business fit, but a shared approach to and philosophy for how we work, live, and give back

“Stephanie and I share similar passions for community and business,” says Dustin. This united front will mean the focus is always first and foremost on increasing the collective positive impact that OneWest and Leblond can bring to the communities we live and work in.
