Jolyn + Ryan | Fairmont Hot Springs Resort Wedding

I drove out to the Fairmont Hot Springs the morning of Jolyn and Ryan’s wedding. It was such a beautiful drive. There wasn’t any traffic at all on my drive from Calgary to the Hot Springs. Jolyn and Ryan were in the wedding party of Katelyn and Taylor’s wedding. I had gotten to know them at Katelyn and Taylor’s wedding and I was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to be apart of their wedding as well. I arrived at the house where all the girls were getting ready. Everyone was in high spirits for the day and excited to get to the ceremony. Jolyn and Ryan have 4 kids and some of my favorite photos are of Jolyn helping them with their coats before heading off to the ceremony. They just have the sweetest smiles while looking at their mom.

It was a little chilly on the mountain at their ceremony but with the stunning views you didn’t feel the cold to much. Jolyn and Ryan had a beautiful ceremony with all their family and friends to share it with. The four kids ended up signing the marriage certificate as well. That was the first time I had seen that at wedding and I do hope to possibly see it at more weddings! We explored the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort after the ceremony for a few photos. Jolyn didn’t care to much about having to trek through the snow… as long as she got into a great photo spot for photos with Ryan. She even convinced Ryan to go down the steep hill, so she could get a few photos by the rocks and river. It was perfect!

They spent the night dancing after the speeches at the reception. Here are a few photos from their special day!

Quinn | Edmonton Newborn Photographer

As an Edmonton Newborn Photographer, I get to snuggle and hold many different babies. I have to say I was most excited to hold Quinn. I have known Quinn’s parents for many many years and I was so excited when she finally arrived. Nicole and Rory had decided to wait to find out if they were going to have a girl or a boy. I was so excited when they announced they had a little girl! Quinn makes the most adorable little sighs. She would be sound asleep and just give out the cutest little sigh. Here are a few photos from Quinn’s newborn session. Enjoy!

Charla + Armand | William Hawrelak Park Engagement Photos

I had a great afternoon with Charla and Armand at William Hawrelak Park. It was absolutely beautiful out and one of the warmest days in February. I loved how the sun was glowing all around them throughout our session. They had drove down from their farm to meet me for their engagement photos and are getting married this summer on their farm. I seriously can not wait to capture their special day! These two just radiate love and I loved the way they smiled at one another during the whole session. One of my favourite things during engagement sessions is just getting to know my clients more before their wedding day. We get to chat and learn more about one another, as we explore locations and just have fun during the process. Charla and Armand were so great to talk to and they were just so easy to take photos of. They would cuddle up with one another and smile and laugh at each other. They made my job just so easy for me because they are so great together.

It was so fun to capture their engagement photos in Hawrelak Park and I can’t wait to be apart of their special day this summer! Below are a few of my favourite photos from their engagement session!

I decided to try a new technique during Charla and Armand’s engagement session. I used a prism to reflect the trees into their photo. It didn’t turn out exactly how I had planned but I am going to just keep trying until I master it. Below is the photo from the technique I used.

How beautiful is Charla’s engagement ring? I absolutely love it with the pine trees!

Amanda and Bo | Port Moody Wedding Photos

Last May, I flew out to visit my friend Brianne in Port Moody. We spent the weekend hanging out, shooting a styled shoot together and I was her second shooter at a wedding. The wedding was at Camp Howdy and was only 10 minutes from Port Moody. As we drove down to Camp Howdy, we went though lush green forest and I couldn’t believe how tall the trees were. I’ve been to BC many times but you kind of forget how big the trees are compared to the ones in Alberta. The venue was like a log cabin and had massive windows all around it. I absolutely love windows! You get so much natural light in the building and you can over look the lake through the windows as well.

It of course ended up raining  in the afternoon and I should have expected it being on the coast of BC. The rain doesn’t stop a wedding though, you pick up the umbrellas and keep going. Amanda and Bo’s family and friends were so nice and very welcoming as well. We ended up sneaking out during the reception when the rained stopped to do a few photos overlooking the lake. The wedding was great and it was great shooting a wedding with Brianne as well. To see more of Brianne’s work from Brianne Adams Photography, Click here! 

The next day after Amanda and Bo’s wedding, we were doing our styled shoot. Before we headed back to Brianne’s place, we stopped off at Tim Hortons and bought a ton of Timbits to make our cake for the shoot. Which was a great ending to the day too! Click here to see more from Brianne and I’s styled shoot at Buntzen Lake!

Below is a few photos from Amanda and Bo’s wedding!

Melissa + Andrew | Hastings Lake Gardens Engagement

HASTINGS LAKE GARDENS ENGAGEMENT

Melissa and Andrew decided to do a Hastings Lake Gardens Engagement from one of my recommendations on places. I adore Hastings Lake Gardens  because it is very different then other locations in Edmonton. It’s a 30 minute drive outside of Edmonton but worth the drive to this spot. It’s usually very busy in the Summer but I liked getting to see it in the Winter, where it was just us. I got to met Melissa and Andrew’s adorable pup Ryder. Who was just as excited to meet me as well. Melissa and Andrew had decided to first get Ryder because Andrew works out of town right now. We started off at the castle part and included Ryder in these photos. He was so good and would look right at me for photos…for the most part 🙂

I had so much fun wondering around the gardens with these two. They kept each other close and wrapped their arms around one another to keep warm on this snowy day. They both had huge smiles while looking at one another during photos. They are so in love and it shows in these photos. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming September!
