Calgary wedding photography can be tricky when you are contending with the changeable weather. A great tip is to be prepared for precipitation: umbrellas, rubber boots, raincoats, and towels (that last one is key). Even if the day appears sunny and nice, follow the classic Girl Guides and Boy Scouts motto and be prepared.
Amanda and Tyler’s wedding was one of my favourites of the year. Amanda thoughtfully brought cute umbrellas and a couple of towels, and the entire bridal party was really great about braving the rain to get some shots after the ceremony. I can’t say how much I appreciate when people grin and bear it in their support of the bride and groom, despite the fact they may be uncomfortable from the wet and cold. Troopers! The bride and groom even pre-scouted spots for some great Calgary wedding photo locations. Who knew we had so many great places around the city? I love when couples find locations in advance that they really like, not only because it means it’s a location they’re happy with, but it exposes me to new areas and lets my creativity go. Plus it makes their photos unique to them. I loved shooting in Fish Creek Park, so this post probably has the most photos I’ve ever blogged in a single entry. I had only been to one area of the park previously, and was underwhelmed. But obviously I had been missing out.
Anyway! Amanda and Tyler are a perfect couple to do photography for, laid back, patient, and up for any of my suggestions. They both laughed and smiled and enjoyed their day — and I truly enjoyed working with them. Here are some of their photos…
Thanks again to both of you, it was an absolute pleasure.
