Brianne & Rich -married! {Canmore, Murrietas Wedding photographer}

Chaos. Wonderful, beautiful, hilarious chaos. The type where your face hurts from smiling and you may or may not be concerned about peeing your pants. This all shall be the theme going forward for Rich and Brianne’s wedding day. I can’t really say enough about how this gorgeous couple and their family and friends delighted and amazed me and my fabulous second shooter Blair. Sometimes we would ask ourselves why? but it would quickly be followed with well, why not? Take for example, 14 people frolicking in a meadow (obviously taken with the breathtaking landscape) or a 10 person pyramid. The question is not why. The answer is always why not. The love is evident, clearly with Rich and Brianne but also with their party (and party they did); so strong in fact that it quite literally surmounts all.

Rich and Brianne wanted an intimate and cozy mingling atmosphere and nothing could be more perfect than renting out Murrietas in downtown Canmore. Set with meal stations and even an oyster bar, I could tell how much their guests enjoyed the freedom of movement and conversation. We really did have a blast and I have to say, we were a little sad to leave as we drove by and got a few waves from the balcony from our new friends. I am so happy to share this glorious day, the goosebumps prove it.

Sonja & Alan -plus one! {Calgary family and maternity photographer}

I feel really lucky to be part of such amazing milestones in my couples’ lives. To be able to document and capture forever these moments means a lot to me. Indeed, I was lucky to meet Sonja and Allen early on in their journey and helped them announce the wonderful news to their family and friends. I was thrilled to hear back that they loved the photos so much they wanted me back to shoot Sonja’s maternity. I was speaking on the phone to a friend when Sonja and Allen arrived and remarked at how stunning Sonja looked in her jeweltone dress and gorgeous accessories- most of which that beautiful bump. And of course, Alan looked great too:)It was a perfect evening, the kind that I lose myself in and forget the time and just go by the setting sun. I love these nights. I can’t wait for more.

Michelle & Bill -married! {Calgary, Sirocco Golf Course Wedding Photographer

It was a typical Calgary day. And by typical I mean that we were being chased and encircled by rain and stormy skies. And in that glorious Calgary fashion, the weather systems kept circling and moving away and we were truly jumping with joy that the ceremony was never effected. The great part of having your wedding at a golf course is that they track the weather even better than I do and have fancy equipment that makes things super accurate. I really liked the mix of urban and rural for Michelle and Bill’s big day. I was delighted when they told me of their plans for doing some of the creatives downtown and even happier when their faces lit up with my offerings. I was lucky enough to have the ever-amazing Joelene Mills second shooting with me and Michelle and Bill remarked at our squeals of delight. It really was THAT much fun. And the happiness and laughter continued throughout the day especially with the wonderful ceremony curated by Abby Charchun and the incredible speeches by their friends and family. Not sure if I’ll ever forget Downtown Bill and his neon khakis. To top off a great day, we pulled off a hilarious photo booth, every wedding should have one!!

Summer time family fun! {Calgary Family Photographer}

I really love seeing a family grow and this sweet family is no exception. I try and make my sessions with kids as active as possible, lots of movement, running, spinning and I also make sure I get what I need in the first 20-30 min and then everything else is just a bonus. We had a great time at Griffith Woods in SW Calgary, it is SO nice to be out shooting in this glorious weather!

Anessa&Steven -engaged! {Moraine Lake, Lake Louise Wedding Photographer}

I was super excited to be back at Moraine Lake for this lovely sunset engagement session. Although it’s hard to choose between Lake Louise and Moraine, I do love all the nooks and crannies and ruggedness of Moraine Lake. I love that Anessa brought sunflowers to the session- Steven had bought them for her that day as they are her favourite flower. It was a spectacular night and I enjoyed playing with the changing light and watching the stunning sunset with this incredible couple. Cannot wait for their September wedding!
