Brace yourself! Well, let me brace myself first haha! Now, here’s a few from Larissa and Matt’s fantabulous wedding. I have photographed well over 150 weddings so far and this one is hands down one of my all time favorite. The wedding day started at 9am and that was the beginning of an amazing day. I met Matt in the morning and they were getting ready at his friend’s house. A house straight out of my dream land full of cool collector’s items, Leicas, slot machines and Mickey mouse room! Then I headed to Larissa’s getting ready location and I was blown away by her talent! You see those gorgeous bouquets? Larissa made those herself! Next was the bridal formal pictures. O MAN! This bridal party members were fun, energetic and hilarious. I seriously had cramps in my belly from laughing so hard! I do not know how the time flew that day. But I have enjoyed each and every moment.
By the way, do you see the look on Larissa and Matt’s eyes? That’s love! True and passionate love. You can almost read their eyes right? I was shooting that day and had goosebumps a few time. Emotions like that inspires me to continue photography. Something I am so fortunate to do. Larissa and Matt, your two make one good looking, humble, kind and perfect couple! I was there just to do my job, but the day truly means much more than that to me. Thanks for letting me witness and capture true love! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness then some more <3<3<3<3<3
I ABSOLUTELY love to photograph weddings at Canmore/Banff and this wedding was no exception. Canmore mountain weddings are gorgeous and when Renee and Alex viewed images of Canmore, they knew this was the place they wanted to be married. Travelling with family they arrived in Canmore from far Ottawa on a perfect day for their wedding ceremony. There was a wildfire at the mountains at that time which put a little touch of mystery to everything. Their wedding ceremony was at the Canmore Bear and Bison Inn. Absolutely gorgeous rustic place and it will always be one of my favorite ceremony + getting ready location. After the ceremony, we headed to the Canmore Old Railway Bridge for bridal formal pictures. This was a perfect location for formal pictures with mountains at the back and greens on the side!
If you look at these wedding pictures, you’d be able to tell from Renee and Alex’s smile that these two are simply made for each other! It was so much fun capturing their love story… I know a lifetime of happiness is waiting for you two <3
Jehna and Austin are just magical together. Hell, it was impossible to miss it! The gentle way of how Austin pulled Jehna closer to him and Jehna’s eyes sparkled every time, was a dead giveaway. What makes the two of them even more special, is that they both have similar passion. Bodybuilding and fitness. Combine all these, and these two are the perfect match! I had so much fun covering this couple session in all!
Jehna and Austin, thanks again for working with me! You two are amazing <3
Where do I begin for this one!! I know Cassie for 3.5 years now. She took the awesome newborn pictures of my son and we have been in contact ever since. The couple session I did of Cassie and Dan couple years back is still one of my favorite session ever! When these two love birds welcomed their precious little one, I knew I should photograph their wonderful family. And oh boy! Isn’t Lincoln the cutest little guy? Full of energy and cuteness! This session was like a dream with gorgeous golden hour light, wonderful location and all the love in the air!
Thanks to Cassie and Dan for letting capture this precious family moments. I mentioned yesterday in one of my blog post that family session is my new favorites. And I can only emphasize to that statement after this session. Can’t wait to capture more family loves in the coming days.
Here are some pictures from Tammy and Nick’s engagement session. Aren’t these two just adorable? Funny story, I often tell a couple to whisper onto each other’s ear. This brings out some excellent moments to capture. Every time I did that with Tammy and Nick, Tammy was just laughing so hard! I asked Nick about what he was whispering? Nick said, “Cookie Monster!” Well, I think I myself laughed straight 5 minutes after hearing that lol. The rest of the session was just filled with such laughter, love and snuggling. I couldn’t be more happier about how the pictures turned out! I’m beyond excited to capture their 2018 edmonton wedding!
I met Christina and Andrew couple months back and I immediately saw the love between these two love birds! They were like made for each other and there was something special about this two. Gentle, kind and subtle yet full of energy! Covering their engagement session was a great experience because of their interesting and fun personality. Can’t wait to cover their wedding in the coming summer!
I have been photographing weddings and engagements exclusively for last 3 years and have not photographed a single family session. Why? Because photography is my passion first and foremost. Yes, I get paid for it, but I would never continue doing something if I do not have a passion behind it. The emotion, love and laughter wedding and engagement pictures offer always drawn me into that. While family sessions to me was just “Look at the camera, say cheese, click” in the early days.
But I have probably grown a little during the last few years haha. When Oksana messaged me for a family session few weeks back, I told to myself that I will be capturing the emotion and love of this family. This was sort of like adventure to me and it truely made me thrilled. I photographed the session and I am IN LOVE with their pictures myself! It was a fun filled evening with lots of love and laughter. Exactly what I am passionate about! So here it is: family sessions are probably one of my most favs now! I’m kinda sad that I missed out on witnessing lots of love during last couple years. But I am looking forward to capture some awesome memories in the coming days. Thanks Oksana and Vova for letting me be part of such a wonderful evening! I truly enjoyed the capturing the love, affection, smile and energy of your family <3
Here are a few from Brianne and Zak’s Edmonton engagement session. I met these two love birds few weeks back and had a blast capturing their engagement session! It was full of laughter and lots of love as you can tell from the pictures! Can’t wait to capture their wedding next year!
Stephanie and Dustin are so incredibly down to earth, you would want to be friends with them forever after one conversation. It’s no surprise that their overall style for the wedding was simple and elegant – the perfect backdrop that allowed their love to be the heart of the celebration.
Getting ready can be stressful, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be a party! Stephanie filled her getting ready location with friends, family, flowers, and of course, food! I loved how we were surrounded by so many details right from the start! After an emotional moment when Stephanie walked down the aisle, this couple still knew how to add comic relief as they shook each other’s hand when they finally met in front of the aisle. How can you not love them?? It was a breeze taking their portraits as husband and wife!
I had a great time capturing a wedding that was so centered on celebrating with their nearest and dearest. Thanks for making me a part of your special day 🙂
Sasha and Levi are one of those couples who’ll make you incredibly excited to photograph their session. I met them few weeks back for coffee in a Second Cup. “HOLY these two look so perfect for each other!” was the first thing I said to myself after seeing them. “I need to book them. Anyhow!” was the second thing I said to myself haha. So when they booked me for their wedding on the spot, it was such a wonderful feeling! I am so glad that I will be photographing their special day next year. But before that, it was time to cover their engagement session.
Usually when I photograph an engagement session, I pay a lot of attention to the background, poses, composition etc. etc. But when I went to photograph their session, I had one goal. To document the passionate love and the spot on chemistry between these two. And man I was so right! This session turned out to be one my all time fav session. While I was editing these pictures, I was sooo enjoying reliving that day again. I will remember this session for a long long time for sure. Thanks again for braving the cold weather, dense bush and for letting me capture your love. My inner photographer self can not wait to photograph your wedding soon!
