Edmonton Wedding Photographers | Sharla & Will | Awesome backyard tent wedding

Friday, March 1st, 2013

After rushing back from Mikaela & Bob’s Banff wedding the day before, I got to photograph a second amazing wedding with Sharla & Will that all took place in Sharla’s parents’ amazing backyard! I met up with the girls at the house to shoot the details and to hang out while they were getting dressed and couldn’t help but sneak over to check out the progress in the backyard every so often… it was beautiful out there! It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for an outdoor wedding and in front of the gazebo was the perfect place to get married. The set up was beautiful and I loved the purple flowers lining the aisle. When Sharla stepped through the draping to begin her walk down the aisle, I was in awe of how perfect she looked and I’m pretty sure Will agreed! After the gorgeous ceremony we headed to the Devon River to do some photos before taking a short detour (what’s with knocking down old buildings and not telling me??) we headed back to the family property to have more photos and to play with a pretty fantastic car and Sharla & Will’s motorcycles. After that, it was a quick trip around the house to the reception set up in a beautiful tent and was decorated just perfectly! It was a great evening and we ended it for a little slightly drunken photo session back in the gazebo in the dark… I love shooting at night!! I’m so happy I got to be the one to photograph this wedding! Congratulations Sharla  & Will!

Wedding Bouquet Inspiration | Perfect Purple wedding flowers by the Wild Orchid

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Here’s a pretty purple bouquet to get you thinking about Spring on this wintery Sunday morning from the Wild Orchid Flower Shop in Edmonton. I’m pretty stumped on what flowers are in this one, but I think I see purple carnations and there’s a pretty brooch. Either way, it’s gorgeous!

Banff Wedding Photographer | Banff Springs wedding with a vintage-y, antique feel & more detail shots than I’ve ever taken before!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

So a few months ago, in March to be precise, Derek and I headed off to Banff to attend Susan and Krister’s wedding. I did my best to be a good guest and stay out of the hired photographers’ way while still nabbing a few shots during the ceremony (at St Georges in the Pines) and the reception (Fairmont Banff Springs) for fun. The detail shots, however, were where I got to run wild! Susan asked if i’d be ok to shoot the details for them, and of course I was! For one, I’ve never just “hung out” between the ceremony and reception, I’m always off taking pictures of the family and the wedding party, so what in the world was I going to do for 3 hours other than take photos? Secondly… well, look at the details! It’s a wedding photographers dream (ok, maybe not all photographers love the detail shots, but I do) to have hours to shoot the details with no pressure and no time contraints. And, um, yeah, look at the rings I got to play with for the ring shots… love!!

The details at Susan’ and Krister’s wedding were spectacular! There was an awesome vintage/antique feel which really suited Mt Stephan Hall at the Fairmont Banff Springs. There were lots of different flower arrangements and tons of awesome vintage tins used in the centrepieces for the tables. There was a pretty rockin’ latte bar too, with lots of vintage teacups and the sweet table… oh my, the sweet table! It was decked out in super tasty cookies and had the most awesome cake from The Art of Cake. I love the cake topper which was just perfect for a pair of photographers getting married. I do wonder if it’s wrong to pledge my undying love to chivari chairs… ok, it’s is, but I can’t help it! Look how amazing those chairs looked! Everywhere you look there were thoughtful, fantastic details. Also totally loving Krister’s felt flower bout… awesome!

Speaking of awesome, well, that had to be Susan and Krister’s wedding planner, Rebecca from High Culture: Weddings & Special Events. Rebecca was fantastic and was very speedy with the set-up of things, and as we can see from the photos, the reception was breathtaking. The gorgeous flowers were from Studio Bloom in Edmonton.

Wedding Bouquet Inspiration – Yellow & Purple vintage flowers by Studio Bloom

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

A few months ago I was a guest at Susan & Krister’s (you might recognize them as the masters behind the lens from Picture That Photography in Edmonton) wedding at the Fairmont Banff Springs, in, you guessed it, Banff, AB. Their wedding was only my second ever that I had attended where I wasn’t an official photographer. Susan asked me if I would get the detail shots from the day and I was more than happy to do it since I had no idea what to at a wedding if I wasn’t photographing it! It was a beautiful day full of gorgeous details. I loooooved the flowers! Susan’s bouquet had tiny gold threads mixed amongst black callas, billy balls, pink peonies and a few other flowers that I can’t identify. I loved the string slowers with the buttons and the bouquet handle was fabulous wrapped in lace with a jeweled brooch.

Wedding Bouquet Inspiration: Purple & White flowers with feathers by The Wild Orchid

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

I love this bouquet from the Wild Orchid Flower Shop! I love the colour purple highlighted against pure white and I love the little feathers mixed in for texture. This is a fun bouquet and it’s still totally appropriate for a formal wedding.
