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.

Why Engagement Photos Are Important

Many couples mention that they don’t know if they really want or need engagement photos, especially if they’ve been engaged for a while. On the other hand, I also speak with some couples who have specific purposes in mind for the photos from …

Heather & Greg Engagement – Calgary Photography

On Sunday afternoon I did a session downtown with Heather & Greg, whose wedding I’ll be shooting next year. It wasn’t too cold, and surprisingly busy down there! Usually downtown = ghost town on weekends. I had a really hard time choosing a few for this “sneak peek”, but finally managed to narrow it down. I really enjoyed shooting these …

Heather & Bryan – Engagement

This past weekend here in Calgary was optimal for photos — fall leaves, and warm weather with beautiful sunshine. I had a number of photo sessions and was extremely glad the weather cooperated. During one shoot at Confederation Park, I counted at least six wedding parties there at the same time, each with their photographers in tow. Seriously, the place …
