Shelley & Chris -engaged! {Calgary, Canmore wedding photographer}

When we were discussing possible locations for the session, two things came up. The first was that Chris had proposed outside St James Corner (where he and Shelley first met) and the second was that the wedding is taking place in Manchester, England (and I get to shoot it eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!) and it might be nice to have the two landscapes (Alberta and England) represented. Try as I might, I couldn’t get either location out of my head, so we simply did both. We started at St James Corner in downtown Calgary and then made our way out to the ever majestic Rockies of Canmore. Chris and Shelley also mentioned that snow might make it more “Canadian” and as always, I deliver what my clients want. Ok, so it was a bit of a freak snowstorm, but whatever. Shelley mentioned that she was planning to wear a tutu and I was thrilled. You really can’t go wrong with a tutu and a little glitter, at least not in my eyes. And it truly was perfect. We had such a great time, braved the wind and the aforementioned snow storm and enjoyed a lot of laughter (my favourite). I cannot wait to head to England next May to capture this awesome couple.

Alissa & Matt -married! {Calgary Wedding Photographer}

You know it's going to be a good day when you arrive at the bride's house and hear the words "is it our favourite photographer?"; "it's our ONLY photographer". I have had the absolute pleasure of capturing all three of the sister's weddings in this truly amazing family. Blair, my second shooter extraordinaire, even talked about how we could totally fit in as sisters/or maybe cousins and Blair made sure to get a picture with everyone to solidify that fact. A word to the wise, if she shows up at family events, you'll now know why. But let's talk about Alissa and Matt and their beautiful wedding which was held at Canyon Meadows Golf Club in the south end of Calgary. I haven't had the chance to shoot there yet and let me say that it is a spectacular venue and I highly recommend it. I think one of my favourite parts of the ceremony was the wine box. Matt and Alissa live out in the country and often walk their dog along the nearby abandoned railroad tracks. So Matt handcrafted the box … [Read More...]

Out at the Ranch {Calgary Family Photographer}

When planning a family session, or any session for that matter, I like to get as much information as possible to make the photography as authentic as possible. Family photography, at it's core, is anything but natural (it's not every day that you plan your family's outfits and head outside only to be followed by a photographer) but I really do strive to capture the essence of the family itself. In talking with Julia, she mentioned that her son loved to throw the football and her daughter did cartwheels. So, that's exactly what we did! I don't think I'll ever stop loving working with children, their joy and zest for life is inspiring and reignites my soul. This session was a lot of fun, complete with our own game of football throwing, my camera hanging by my side. Enjoy! … [Read More...]
