Ghost Town Engagement Photos | Bow River Ranch Calgary

Bow River Ranch is in Springbank, just outside of Calgary. Before Amy and Nate arranged for their engagement shoot to be there, I had no idea it existed. I mean, I know movies have been shot in and around Calgary plenty of times, but a full-on old West town? A pleasant surprise for me, and I could have photographed there …

Canmore Engagement Pictures in the Mountains | Calgary Photographer

It was not quite spring, but not really winter, either, for Nicky and Matt’s engagement photos in Canmore. They wanted them to be done when there was still snow bedecking the rocky mountains, and we definitely had that! They included their dog in a few of their photos — it took a few treats for him to warm to me, …

Photos at Father Pandosy Mission & Gellatly Nut Farm | Kelowna Engagement Pictures

We travelled to various destinations around Kelowna for this engagement session, from Father Pandosy Mission out to Gellatly Nut Farm in West Kelowna — and Karyssa and Randy have been waiting so patiently ever since to see a few of their photos from their recent visit to Kelowna! They’re from Calgary and doing a destination wedding here in the Okanagan …

Kelowna Family Photographer | Spring Orchard Blossoms

The Okanagan orchards being in bloom is fleeting, but such a great time to be a family photographer. All around Kelowna, the apple and cherry trees are covered with blossoms that only last a few weeks and cry out to be photographed. Aimee, Mike and their kids and I had a session, taking advantage of the time of year. Here …

Winter Engagement Photos | Canmore Photographer

The Rocky Mountains are fabulous in winter, and when you have a sunny, warm day, they are especially good for engagement photography. Jacqueline and Garrett and I spent a morning out there, where Garrett introduced us to some beautiful new areas I had never been to (Goat Creek, I think?). I had such a big smile on my face as …

Canmore Engagement Photos | Joran & Carolyn

It was a bitterly cold day in Canmore for Joran & Carolyn’s engagement photos. We went to the lovely Quarry Lake and to the Canmore Engine Bridge (built in 1892). Carolyn is a talented seamstress, she made the fabulous green coat she is wearing in these photos. I’m so glad these two were able to stand the cold, we had …

Mary & Leo | Calgary Couples Photography

I have been fortunate to do family photos for this wonderful couple three times now! We focused on mom & dad this time a bit after getting some pictures of the kids, since they have recently celebrated their tenth anniversary — congratulations, you two. The weather forecast (always a popular topic of mine) called for a really crummy and cold …

Fish Creek Park Fall Family Photos

It was a beautiful autumn day in Fish Creek Park for photography. Today I got to meet past clients Michelle and Kevin’s new baby! Three and a half years ago I photographed their wedding, and it was a huge compliment for them to get in touch with me again. It was great to see them and their families, and we …

Fish Creek Park Engagement Photos | Tracy & Shaun

Tracy, Shaun and I met up at the Shannon Terrace end of Fish Creek Park for their engagement photos. I really enjoyed photographing these two, they’re so laid back and warm, and so in love. It was so much fun! Fish Creek Park is one of my favourite photography spots in Calgary, it’s got so many great places for photography, …
