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 …

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 …

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, …

Marc & Melissa | Calgary Stephen Avenue Engagement Photos

This session was the first time I had met Marc; he was visiting Canada so we took the opportunity to do their engagement photos, despite the cold that we’re still getting here. I had already met Melissa when she booked me to photograph their Friday wedding in Cochrane — so it was lovely to see this cute, warm couple together. …

Calgary Fall Wedding Pictures | Confederation Park

Stacey and Dirk’s wedding was on a cold and blustery Calgary fall day — unlike their toasty warm engagement photo session. Here and there the sun came out and warmed everyone up briefly… before the wind started again. Not very important, except to note that the bride and ladies in sleeveless, short dresses really sucked it up and looked relaxed …
