Wedding Portrait Photos at Rundle Ruins, Calgary

Emma and Brad are such a cute couple together. And organized! Emma contacted me a year ago to book a short session this month, the day of their wedding. I think doing photos before the wedding is such a great idea — you’re still fresh and composed for the photos. A lot of people are dropping the ‘groom not seeing …

Ryan & Julie | Heritage Park Engagement Photos

In my digital calendar, I set photography events and appointments with the colour red (for Redfern). Looking at my calendar for August, it’s almost filled entirely red! It’s been and continues to be a surprisingly busy month. It’s one of my favourites for photography, though — warm, golden light, and that mellow late-summer feel. In July I had a lot …

Laureen & Dan | Calgary Engagement Photos

Laureen and Dan knew they wanted a rural feel for their engagement photos, and they awesomely pre-scouted some locations just outside of the city. We stopped at a few places, and thank goodness they had a 4×4. It was a fun shoot involving canola, granaries, hay bales, their dog, farms and fields. We were very lucky with the weather, too… …

Sarah & Jeremy Engagement Photos at the Rundle Ruins

This session was the same night as the Calgary Stampede Sneak-a-Peek, which probably wasn’t the best night to try to find parking at the Rundle Ruins park — it is within a very short walk of the Saddledome and the Calgary Stampede grounds. Parking was at a premium. Still, we prevailed, and managed to capture some nice sunset light. These …

Mark & Debbie | Calgary Engagement Photographer

One last engagement session to post for now, it’s been a bit of a marathon! Here are a few images as a sneak peek for Mark and Debbie from their session on a lovely evening in Confederation Park here in Calgary. It’s easy to tell how in love these two are, they didn’t mind any excuse to kiss, at all! …

Aspire & Tracy | Calgary Engagement Photography

Another engagement session! This time, Aspire and Tracy. We enjoyed a nice evening in Confederation Park (one of my favourites). These two are super cute and came SO prepared to the session (with a change of clothes, each). Super easy to work with, it was a pleasure strolling around, even though we got bitten by the abundant mosquitoes more than …

Amanda & Tyler | Calgary Engagement Photographer

The session with Amanda and Tyler was the second of my photographic forays into Reader Rock Garden this year. I really love it as a location, Calgary is pretty dry and it is the only place around here where I have seen actual ferns growing! I had a lot of fun shooting these two, Amanda’s wishes to avoid anything cheesy …

Kevin & Jalyn | Calgary Engagement Photography

Reader Rock Garden is a gorgeous oasis in the middle of Calgary, with lush gardens and a path up to a historic house (which is now a cafe). It’s close to the Calgary Stampede Grounds, and it’s amazing how many people don’t know it’s there. I only found out about it after I was watching the news one day — …

Ashley & Craig | Calgary Engagement Photography

Tuesday evening I got together with Ashley and Craig for a pre-wedding e-session. I met Craig for the first time as he’s recently returned from serving overseas. When they booked me last winter to photograph their wedding, I only met with Ashley. I’m really happy that they went for the engagement session even though their wedding is later this very …

Jody & Dean | Calgary Engagement Photographer

This afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting with Jody & Dean for a fun outdoor engagement session… here’s your first look at some of their photos! The one on the left looks like it was taken in the autumn instead of spring to me, since some of the trees still have berries(?) on them. Spring hasn’t quite sprung in …
