Ally + Jess | Edmonton Intimate Backyard Wedding

I drove into the driveway to Ally’s parents home and saw the most beautiful property. They had a barn being built (Which I am sure will be great when it is done), a little pond down the road and of course the most gorgeous trees on their property. Ally and Jess were getting married in the backyard of the property and the trees were swept over top of them. Absolutely Stunning!  Also, I think backyard weddings make the most amazing wedding venues! Jess arrived and we walked down to where the pond was on the property for the first look. She faced toward the pond and then Ally made her way down the driveway to see one another. Of course there was a few tears of joy and many smiles when Jess first turned around.

We explored the property with the bridal party and even went up into the barn for a few photos. So many amazing spots for photos just in the backyard of the property. Ally and Jess had wrote their own vows (which I think every couple should) for their ceremony. As they read them out to one another, you could see the emotions of everyone attending the ceremony. After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a few cocktails to celebrate and then headed into the reception for a BBQ dinner. One of the reason’s I love intimate weddings, is because everyone can be themselves, hang out with their closest friends and family and just focus on the couple.

Ally and Jess had the best favours to send with their guests at the end. You really can’t go wrong with homemade Bailey’s, coffee and s’mores cookies! I am so grateful I was able to be apart of your special day and thank you for trusting me to document your day for you! Congrats Ally + Jess!

Stejskal Family | Edmonton Maternity and Newborn Photos

I get pretty excited when I hear that my past clients are expecting. I was thrilled to do Hayley and Jessy’s Edmonton Maternity and Newborn photos. We headed downtown to do their maternity photos. Only 4 days after we did their maternity photos, their daughter arrived. Summer arrived a few weeks early but I am so glad we were able to do their maternity photos before she arrived.

Summer is so sweet and has the cutest little noises when she sleeps. She was so easy to take photos of! She didn’t fuss or anything when we changed her from different wraps and props. I decided to post a few from both sessions below!

Kim + Scott | Fort Edmonton Park Wedding

Kim and Scott first met when a mutual friend set them up together on a date. Now they are married and about to go on their honeymoon tomorrow too! I absolutely loved hanging out with the girls in the morning and getting to know them better. The morning was very relaxed as they got their hair and make-up done at Kim’s parents house. Kim got into her dress and did a few final touches before the ceremony at Fort Edmonton Park. We could see Scott and the groomsmen chatting below the hotel and the girls couldn’t resist peeking out the window. It was actually very sweet!

Kim and Scott got married at the St Michaels and All Angels Anglican Church in the park. I absolutely love this church. It is so beautiful inside and give each ceremony an intimate feel as well. After the ceremony we explored the park taking photos. Kim and Scott are so sweet together and I love how easily they make one another smile. After photos were almost done, we headed to the front entrance to take a few more photos. Kim and Scott’s adorable pups were stopping by for a few photos with them! Dolly and Daisy were so excited to see their parents. After they got over their first initial excitement, they came and sat so perfectly next to Kim and Scott. They basically looked right at me for the photos…which never happens with dogs!

I wasn’t surprised when I saw that their favors were baseball beer cozy’s. Kim and Scott both share a passion for baseball and had their entire baseball team at the wedding. We had also did some baseball photos at their engagement photos too. I love how Kim and Scott’s wedding day included details that was a reflection of their personalities. Each bridesmaid and groomsmen did a little speech for Kim and Scott. Kim’s sister included a very sweet quote by Dr. Seuss in her speech. “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, We join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love”

I am so grateful to have been apart of Kim and Scott’s beautiful Fort Edmonton Park Wedding! Congrats to the two of you on starting your forever together!! Have great honeymoon!

Sarah + Josh | Louise McKinney Park Engagement Photos

Sarah and Josh are getting married this September!! I met them at Louise McKinney Park to shoot their engagement photos. It was looking like it was going to rain the entire session. Which gave us some dramatic skies in some of their photos. It did end up raining right at the end of the session but we were already done by then. It worked out pretty perfectly I think!

As we walked through the park, Sarah and Josh would exchange glances at each other and smile. So sweet! Part of the park is still under construction but we just avoided those areas. Sarah and Josh originally met while working at a ski shop in University. They realized they had a lot in common and the rest is history now! Congrats to the two of you! I can’t wait to see you tie the knot this September!

Ashley + Lukas | Smeltzer House Wedding

I arrived in the morning to Fluid Hair, where Ashley and April were getting their hair done for the big day ahead. I loved getting to be there from the beginning of the day to see Ashley and Lukas tie the knot. I was greeted by two fluffy dogs when I first walked in. I had no idea that the hair stylists brought their dogs in to Fluid Hair but I thought that was amazing. Ashley had been going to Fluid Hair for many years and she said even before she had met Lukas even. Which you could tell because it felt like a few friends hanging out while they got their hair done.

Ashley and April went back to the Best Western Plus Sherwood Park Inn & Suites to get their make-up done and final touches before heading off to the ceremony. I left for a few minutes to go down the street to take a few photos of Lukas getting ready. The boy’s getting ready doesn’t take very long, so I was back right when Ashley was just getting her make up done. Worked out perfectly! Ashley and Lukas’s Smeltzer House Wedding Ceremony was beautiful. They had their closest friends and family there to watch. Ashley and Lukas wrote their own vows and they were some of the sweetest vows to one another.

After the ceremony, We took a few photos of Ashley and Lukas around Sherwood Park. These two are so passionate for one another and I love how they know exactly how to make one another laugh too! They couldn’t stop smiling at each other and stealing peeks of one another during photos. They ended their day at Vicky’s bistro for dinner with their family and friends. I hope the two of you had an amazing honeymoon together and I am so grateful I was able to be apart of your day. Congrats Ashley and Lukas!
