Sarah & Jeremy | Calgary Wedding Photographer

I really enjoyed Sarah and Jeremy’s wedding — they are obviously in love with each other and such happy, cheerful people. it was my second wedding at the Valley Ridge Golf Club, which is a very pretty place (and great for photos). I started out the day at Sarah and Jeremy’s home for a bit of ‘getting ready’ coverage with Sarah, her family, and her bridesmaids. From there it was off to Valley Ridge for the ceremony! The weather was being a bit unsettled and it was threatening to rain, but they persevered and held their ceremony outside anyway. I’m so glad they did, it was warm enough and the weather made for really lovely skies for the photos of the ceremony.

We started photos right after the ceremony, and after not too long it actually did rain, quite a bit. So we took the opportunity to seek shelter inside and warm up, and we took a few photos indoors and under the covered walkways outside. It was also a good chance for me to capture some detail shots. And, luckily, by the time we had finished with all of that, it had stopped raining. As they say with Calgary weather, if you don’t like what it’s doing, wait five minutes and it’ll change. It can be pretty cold, miserable, and wet taking photos in the rain, but if you struggle through it you can really get some lovely wedding photos — everything is so fresh after a rainfall, bright and clean, and clouds make a lovely natural light diffuser.

Sarah and Jeremy are truly lovely people, warm and kind, but also full of life and laughter. Usually I am the one making clients laugh or smile, but so often these two would get me giggling and cracking up. I love that. I also appreciate seeing couples who don’t give in to the stress of the wedding day, who can enjoy themselves and have a great time celebrating. Plus I must admit I feel a bit of similarity with them, Sarah is short petite, and Jeremy is tall — my husband and I share over a one-foot difference in height, too.

Onto a few photos from a really fantastic day…

Many thanks to you both for letting me share your day with you!
