Julie + Michael | Shaw Conference Centre Wedding

I met Julie many years ago while we were both serving at a local restaurant. I was very honoured when she asked me to photograph her wedding day! Julie and Michael met one night out for dinner with friends. Julie’s friend she worked with introduced them the night they went out. The rest is history now! I met the girls at Julie and Michael’s home to do the getting ready photos. The girls were helping one another get ready while drinking mimosas. I absolutely loved their robes they all had one and especially Julie’s. Loved that Julie’s robe had “Wifey” on it!  After getting ready we all headed to the Shaw Conference Centre to see these two tie the knot!

We headed down to Louise Mckinney park after their ceremony to take some photos. Part of the park was under construction but we made the best of it. After taking a few fun photos with the bridal party, they headed back to the reception. I was able to step back to let them just have time to breathe, time to celebrate being husband and wife…. Even if it was just for a few minutes. Time so many couples don’t get because of the busy-ness of their day. Julie and Michael look at one another so lovingly. You can just tell how happy these two are together with one another!

We cut taking photos pretty close to when these two had to make their grand entrance into their wedding. The room had a ton of natural light coming through the wall of windows and also a patio deck everyone enjoyed though out the evening. The speeches were very heartfelt but also had everyone cracking up and laughing. Especially Michael’s best man Frank, who had everyone stand up and raise their hands above their head. Then took a photo as evidence of everyone on their feet and looking like they were clapping after his speech. Everyone was very confused until he explained it… after he took the photo of course! After the first dances, the three of us snuck out to go take a few photos during the sunset. Turned out to be some of my favourites from their wedding. The rest of the evening was filled with dancing, laughter and fun!

Thank you so much for having me at your wedding! I loved every minute I got to spend at your beautiful wedding and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!

Stacey + Garrett | Calgary Carriage House Wedding

Calgary Carriage House Wedding

I don’t know where to even start. Stacey and Garrett had the most incredible wedding and were surrounded by their family and friends. Their ceremony and reception were held at the Carriage House Inn where Stacey works. I love that she works at the hotel because I think it makes it that much more special that they held their wedding there! I myself love the Carriage House Inn because I have probably stayed there more times then I can count. Every time we would drive up to visit my grand parents, we would stay at the Carriage House Inn because it was very close to their house.

Stacey and Garrett met online and had their first date at a restaurant. Garrett was so nervous about meeting her for the first time that he ended up going a couple hours early and a couple of drinks to help. The rest is history now because they are married. I loved how the ceremony was set up on the hotel. It made for a very intimate ceremony.

The weather was a bit odd the day of their wedding. It was very cloudy all day and then it would start to rain and then stop. Then rain. Then stop. We were going to head to a park for photos after the ceremony but headed downtown instead. The Bay downtown Calgary has a great spot that is covered and your able to take photos under it. I think it worked out for the best!

I love how these two look at one another when their wrapped up in each others arms. Especially on their wedding day and looking at each other with so much love. Their wedding party kept me on my toes and we were constantly laughing at the goofy faces. They also were a huge help in blocking off the pedestrians walking downtown so they wouldn’t walk into Stacey and Garrett’s photos.

The decor at the reception was absolutely stunning at the reception. Glass vases with flowers and candles on every table, all purple candy at the candy bar…which include the couples favourite candy to share with everyone. Adorable white couches for every one to lounge on and chat though out the evening. It was beautiful and everything was perfect for their wedding! Loved their Calgary Carriage House Wedding! Every Minute!

Thank you so much for having me at your wedding and I am beyond grateful I got to be apart of your first day as husband and wife! Scroll below to see more photos from their beautiful day!

Erin + Ryan | Edmonton Downtown Engagement

These two are getting married tomorrow! Last weekend we met up to do their engagement photos. Erin wanted some photos in a park and Ryan wanted a few downtown. So we did both. We started at Rundle Park that holds a special place in their hearts. Erin’s family planted a tree in Rundle Park in honour of her sister passing. We started at the tree to do a few photos by it of these two and I am so glad we were able to. Then continued to walk around the park for a bit as well. These two are so cute together. They are naturally both are smiling when they look at one another.

After Rundle Park, we drove downtown to get a few photos. The sun decided to set a bit earlier then usually but we were still able to get all of the spots for photos. My favourite spot was at the top of a parkade that is deep into downtown and surrounded by buildings. I am so excited to see these two tie the knot tomorrow!

LAURA + MARK | St.Albert Maternity Photos

St.Albert Maternity Photos
When I was first starting out in photography, I asked Laura and Mark if I could do their engagement photos to build up my portfolio. Fast forward a few years and they are now expecting their second baby. He or She could come any day now and I am excited to find out if they have a girl or a boy. They wanted to wait to find out what they were having until he or she arrives.

I haven’t seen Georgia since we did her newborn photos two years ago now. She is a ball of energy and loves to run. I am not sure how Mark and Laura keep up to her because she is fast! We explored Millennium park in St.Albert taking photos of the three of them. At the end of the session we got some photos of Georgia playing in the park. I’m sure that was her favourite part of the evening!
