clara + dan // edmonton wedding photographer

we feel like we’ve known you forever!”

it’s the sweetest thing you can hear a client say to you in their thank you speech at the end of their wedding day. it’s even better when we feel the same way back! clara + dan are the kind of people who welcome you in, who make you feel like you matter. i think that’s why their wedding day was so full of love….so many people wanted to celebrate with these two! 

of course, we knew that clara + dan would pick great company to be surrounded by at their wedding. the speeches….oh, the speeches! some of my favourites of all time. i’m pretty sure everyone in the room was laughing until they cried, and then crying until they laughed again:)

clara + dan…we feel like we’ve known YOU forever! enjoy the photos and relish every memory of your fantastic wedding day!

kirsten + mike // edmonton wedding photographer

kirsten is the queen of details. like, seriously. i don’t think there was one stone unturned when it came to the details of her wedding day, right down to the pearl-strung leash her fur baby, stella, sported down the aisle with the flower girls! you could tell that kirsten + mike wanted to soak in every minute of their wedding day, all while hosting the most amazing party for their guests! 

it’s always an honour to be a part of some of the behind-the-scenes moments of a couple’s wedding day, and kirsten + mike’s day was no exception. i loved the interactions these two shared with their closest family and friends…kirsten’s mom could not stop beaming all day, and i’m pretty sure mike is the center of his aunties’ world! there was even a dance specifically for “all the women of influence” in mike’s life…the dj played “mambo number 5” while mike twirled his aunts, sisters, and mother-in-law around on the dance floor! too cute!

thanks for sharing your day with us, kirsten, mike + stella!

morgan + jeremy // edmonton engagement photographer

morgan + jeremy just might be my kindred spirits. these two love sports, travel, urban life and trying new restaurants. and morgan’s favourite famoso pizza is cavoletti. these two are my kinda people:)

considering their love for all things “city”, we planned a city-style engagement session for them, and we had a pretty awesome time. never a dull moment, morgan and jeremy are up for anything! hey you two…it was so great hanging out with you and getting to know you better! can’t wait until your urban wedding next summer:)

carolyn + ryan // edmonton wedding photographer

it was a perfectly breezy, sunshiney day. the first day of summer. also, carolyn + ryan’s wedding day. a gorgeous day to be married out at lions garden, in the company of all of their closest family and friends. carolyn and her besties had their hair and makeup done at the house she grew up in before heading out to the ceremony site.

there were so many precious moments on this day, that even now, have me smiling as i type this. from the moment the tiny ringbearer and flowergirl did their perfect march down the aisle, to the first gaze ryan had on his beautiful bride, to the “first dance” that ryan shared with his grandmother. so many great moments to complete what was already destined to be a beautiful day.

carolyn + ryan…thank you for sharing your day with us! enjoy a few of my favourite sneak peeks.

rachel + jonathan // edmonton wedding photographer

rachel + jonathan’s wedding day was pretty close to perfect. sunny weather, happy family and friends, and so much love. i don’t remember a moment when rachel wasn’t smiling.

there were also a lot of cute details that rachel added to the day to make it special - from the wedding dress that she had custom designed to the adorable handmade birdhouses that guests were invited to take home as favours. to cap it all off, the party finished with an amazing dance where literally every guest made it to the dancefloor! rachel + jonathan….it was an absolute honour to photograph your big day!

wenny + kevin // edmonton wedding photographer

wenny + kevin’s big day was the first wedding of the season for me…and in the midst of a chilly, rainy spring, the clouds parted and the sun came out to celebrate! wenny is probably the sweetest bride you’ll ever meet…she makes sure everyone at the wedding - including the photographer, the caterer, the officiant, and anyone else involved - is taken care of. it puts a smile on my face just to think about it.
wenny + kevin…thank you for taking such good care of us, and for allowing us to be a part of such a special day for the two of you! 

kylie + patric // edmonton engagement photographer

kylie + patric met while watching sports at a friends house. they were cheering for opposite teams, but how could patric not be won over by this gorgeous girl who knew as much as he did about the game? he proposed on an air balloon ride in phoenix this fall. these two are up for adventure, and more than that, they love doing adventure together. 

it was beyond fun to hang out with these two and capture a bit of their fun, witty, romantic-comedy-kind-of-love. fun sledding shots? we did it! skating on a winter’s day in team jerseys? we did that too! kylie + patric…loved photographing you two, and can’t wait for the big day. i know you have all kinds of great adventures coming your way! 

snapshot workshop // coming march 1

i’m pleased as punch to be offering another beginner photography class in a little over a week! next saturday, march 1, i’ll be hosting a workshop at my studio space downtown. i love photography, and i also love sharing it with others who want to learn about it! this class is intimate, super hands-on, and we talk about a full range of photography know-how, from lighting, to composition and subject matter, to the technical stuff. if you’re interested, please join us! you can sign up here.

check out a few photos from the last workshop in november! 

another bonus of attending SNAPSHOT is that you’ll get to see my fancy interpretive dance moves…like this one below! ;)

kelsey + levi // edmonton engagement photographer

kelsey + levi met at a party. i think kelsey said she did something charming, like offer to eat all the toppings off of levi’s slice of pizza. levi was intrigued. he had to get to know this kelsey a little better. 

it’s easy to see that these two just click. i loved getting to know them and hearing about the autumn destination wedding they are planning! :) kelsey + levi…so great getting to know you two!
