Calgary Wedding Photographers | Monica & Evan | Banff wedding in Edmonton

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Monica & Evan had wanted a winter wedding but it got shuffled to late June so that more friends and family could attend. They wanted a Banff wedding and it was all set to go at the beautiful Banff Springs hotel and then the mountains and a good chunk of Southern Alberta flooded just days before their wedding. We were lucky up here in Edmonton and had really no idea what the destruction was like down South and had hoped that the wedding would still go ahead with the plan to have the ceremony at Two Jack Lake (one of my favourite places for photos in Banff) and then to the reception at the Banff Springs. Friday morning, the day before the wedding, we all realized it wasn’t going to happen in Banff so we did what we could to make sure Monica & Evan had an amazing wedding in Edmonton! I found the perfect spot for the new ceremony location, picking a spot that I think would rival any Banff scenery and got help from my friends at A Modern Proposal Event Planning and fabloomosity to help put together a beautiful ceremony set up and finding a marriage commissioner at such short notice (Thanks so much Juli & Janine, your help meant a lot to me!). Monica’s sister also did a great job in finding a florist for the bridal party bouquets (Awesome Blossom, I think) on such short notice and the bouquets were so pretty.  We stayed at Whitemud Park for family photos and photos with the wedding party before heading to the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald for the wedding reception (The Fairmont was so helpful in making the reception in Edmonton be just as amazing as it would have been in Banff). Monica’s Mom made the beautiful centrepieces for the reception and they were lucky to still have all of their winter-themed decor with them so it all turned out perfectly! The best part? The sno-cones that were a hit at the reception! It really couldn’t have been a better day for such a sweet couple! Congratulations Monica & Evan!!

Canmore Engagement Photography | Jackie & Ian | In the mountains

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

I met up with Jackie and Ian on September Long weekend after my weddings in Pigeon lake and Calgary to do their engagement session in the beautiful mountains surrounding Canmore. Canmore is one of my favourite places ever (and banff too!) so I am also happy to travel there for weddings and engagement photo sessions. It was a perfect day for pictures and we started out at the site of an abandoned mine (that I didn’t know about until Sarah told me that day. Thanks Sarah!). It was a super cool spot to shoot in with the old house and mine shaft surrounded by big fields with beautiful views of the mountains. Just perfect really. Afterwards we headed off to Quarry Lake to finish up the shoot by the water… so pretty! It was a great way to end the long weekend and I can’t wait for Jackie & Ian’s winter wedding coming up in December here in Edmonton. Here are some of my favourite photos from their Canmore engagement session!

Banff Engagement Photographers | Alice & Mark | Two Jack Lake & Vermilion Lake

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Alice & Mark were married on September 1 in Calgary so I think it’s time I post their Banff engagement session before I post any of their wedding sneak peeks! I met up with them back in July on a perfect summer say. We met up at Two Jack Lake (one of my favourite places in Banff) to start their engagement session. The scenery in this spot is just amazing, and while the water is a little chilly, I couldn’t resist sending Alice & Mark out to be in it for a little while (only up to the ankle at least!). On the way out we stopped in a gorgeous field pf daisies for more photos before I got us lost on the way to the next spot, so we opted to hang out on the train tracks (I know, I know!) before finally ending up at Vermilion Lake where I was the one to wade out in the chilly mountain lake water for lots of fabulous photos! I love the cute little dock at Vermilion lake surrounded by all that water and the fabulous mountain views. I just love Banff… can’t wait to go back!! These are my favourite photos from Alice & Mark’s Banff engagement photo session… enjoy!

Calgary Engagement Photographer | Ashh & Ryan – Winter Couples session in Edmonton

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Ashh & Ryan are getting married in Edmonton next February. We waited until April to do part one of their engagement session, hoping and hoping that spring would finally come to the land of never-ending winter… no such luck!  So we had some fun in the snow anyway. At the very least, it’ll be good practice for their wedding day to handle the cold, right? ;) These are some of my favourite photos from their winter engagement session.

Calgary Engagement Photographers | Kaitlyn & Ryan | Emily Murphy Couples’ session in Edmonton

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Boy, I’m super far behind on posting engagement and portrait sessions, so I’m gonna go back to the winter here for Kaitlyn & Ryan’s snowy engagement session at Emily Murphy Park back in November. It was a perfect wintery day, not too chilly with some bright sunlight. These two were great at snuggling to keep warm! The winter engagement session was a great contrast to their warm, summery destination wedding that was in Cancun, Mexico this past April. Here’s a few of my favourite photos from their snow engagement session here in Edmonton.

Banff Wedding Photographers | Monica & Evan | Whitemud Park wedding sneak peek

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Monica & Evan were supposed to have their wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff a couple weekends ago, just a couple days after the crazy floods hit the mountains and Southern Alberta… so that changed quickly and they had a gorgeous wedding in Edmonton instead. I’m amazed at how quickly everything got put together here in in less than 36 hours from when it was clear that the mountain wedding just wasn’t going to happen. We picked a spectacular location in Edmonton for their ceremony and the formal wedding photos that rivals just about any spot in Banff for beautiful photos. This is one of my favourite photos from the day… Congratulations Monica & Evan! The day was just perfect!

Edmonton Wedding Photographers | Jennifer & Ryan | Hotel MacDonald wedding

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Jennifer & Ryan’s Sunday wedding rounded out my triple header wedding weekend ( remember Mikalea & Bob and Sharla & Will?) with a beautiful early afternoon ceremony and reception in the Harvest Room at the Hotel MacDonald in Edmonton. We met up with Jennifer earlier in the day at Ryan’s parents’ place where she was getting ready. I fell in love with her pretty tea-length wedding dress the moment I saw it. I also loved the sentiment behind the pocketwatch on her bouquet that belonged to her Dad. After getting ready, Jennifer & Ryan did a first look before we headed out to do portrait with their motorcycle and then to Hotel MacDonald for more portraits and family photos before the ceremony.

The ceremony was perfect and I loved how emotional Ryan looked throughout. You’ll also notice Jennifer clutching a tissue in a few shots… and it was well needed! After the ceremony there was a reception in the same room and it was just beautifully put together by fabulous Edmonton wedding planner Kristina McAnally from Special Event Rentals with beautiful flowers from the Wild Orchid Flower Shop featuring a cool colour palette of red and aqua. It was a great day! Congratulations Jennifer & Ryan!

Banff Wedding Photographers | Mikaela & Bob | Buffalo Mountain Lodge wedding

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

I was super excited to head to Banff for Mikaela & Bob’s wedding! We met up with them at Buffalo Mountain Lodge, which has become one of my favourite places in Banff for a wedding, to hang while everyone got ready. I loved Mikaela’s dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses as well (the blue was fabulous!). I also loved the girls’ cowboy boots… they looked awesome with their dresses! After getting ready, we headed into town to the ceremony at the gazebo. After doing family photos be the river, we headed out near Two-Jack Lake to take some photos near the water. We sent Mikaela & Bob out to a little island for some photos of the two of them before sending out the wedding party… I’m so happy they didn’t think I was toooo crazy for making them hike out through the water! We also managed to get the bride & groom into a canoe for a few shots as well before heading to the fields on the way to Bankhead where we also stopped for some champagne and a few photos at the ruin’s of the old church. We had a blast with Mikaela, Bob and the crew… such a good time with a super fun bridal party! We ended the night at Buffalo Mountain Lodge for the beautiful reception featuring sunflowers and amazing horseshoe table numbers that were made by the family. It really couldn’t have been any more perfect! Congratulations Mikaela & Bob!

Edmonton Wedding Photographers | Helan & Jamie | Oasis Centre wedding

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Where to start with Helan and Jamie’s wedding? It was a beautiful day but there was a little smoke blowing over town from some forest fires up North so we were a little concerned about the outdoor ceremony and air quality, but all worked out well! I started the day and Helan & Jamie’s home where I photographed all of Helan’s fantastic jewelry,  her TWO wedding dresses (yup, two beautiful dresses, lucky girl!) and her perfect Jimmy Choo shoes. Excuse me while I swoon at the memory! After hair and make-up were done, we headed to the Oasis Centre to finish getting reading before the outdoor ceremony on the grounds. It really couldn’t have been more perfect and that little bit of smoky haze made some really pretty light. The ceremony was beautiful and afterwards we stayed in the gardens at the Oasis for wedding party photos before heading inside for the reception. The Oasis is such a fabulous venue and we had a great night of dancing and fun. I think I went a little overboard on the photos though… have fun looking through! Congratulations Helan & Jamie! It was an awesome day!!
