Laurie & Craig | Calgary Wedding Photographer

Laurie and Craig had a very intimate wedding at their home, with a celebration afterwards at a friend’s home in her beautiful garden. They didn’t need much coverage, just a few shots at the celebration and then some portraits afterwards in Riley Park. Pretty quick day for me, with just two and a half hours of shooting. But it was …

Aspire & Tracy | Calgary Wedding Photos In The Rain, Chinese Cultural Centre

You’ll notice I talk about the ever-changing Calgary weather a lot in this photography blog. When you’re an on-location shooter, weather heavily influences sessions. Sometimes in a good way that presents unique opportunities, and sometimes in a bad way that limits what you can do. Either way, we are all at the mercy of whatever the weather decides to do. …

Ashley & Craig | Calgary Wedding Photographer

Well, it’s definitely wedding season! For some reason I have ended up with the long weekend off coming up (not that I am complaining). However, nearly every other weekend this summer, I have a wedding to shoot. Having them one after the other like this highlights the differences between families, ceremony styles, and brides/grooms themselves. I adore weddings (what girl …

Aya & Ray | Lake Louise Wedding Photography

This weekend I was privileged to be part of a beautiful and happy wedding at Fairmont’s Chateau Lake Louise in the amazing Rocky Mountains. It’s been a whirlwind of travelling and I still have yet to download all of the photos I took from the cards, but for those of you visiting this blog for the first time, here’s a …

MG & E | Calgary Wedding Photographer

Yesterday I had the opportunity to second shoot and assist for a wedding with Avelaine, of Kalago Photography. She was workin’ it! See? It was great to work with a fellow Calgary wedding photographer, I enjoyed working as part of a team. Plus it was a really beautiful wedding and it was probably the first nice day in Calgary for …

Jody & Dean | Calgary Wedding Photography

On Sunday morning, I was privileged to be a part of a small and intimate wedding at Lougheed House here in Calgary. When Jody originally contacted me about the possibility of photographing their wedding, I confessed to her that had my husband and I gotten married in Calgary, it probably would have been at that venue. I think it’s a …

Why Engagement Photos Are Important

My base wedding package always includes engagement photos — there’s no discount for skipping an engagement session. 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 & Bryan – Calgary Wedding Photography

As I mentioned in my previous post, the wedding I shot on Saturday was one of the coldest ever! I did an engagement session with Heather and Bryan a couple of months ago, and it seems like hardly any time had passed until it was their wedding. It was a beautiful day, and Heather and Bryan are incredibly easygoing and …

Bragg Creek Wedding Photographer | Bragg Creek Community Centre Reception

Stacey and Trevor had a lovely wedding, which I shot on film (the last wedding I fully shot on film) during a gorgeous August day. Both the ceremony and reception took place at the Bragg Creek Community Centre, between the two events we went to Bragg Creek Provincial Park for a some portraits. I was only with the bride and …

Calgary Autumn Wedding Photography | Riley Park Fall Wedding Photos

An absolutely perfect day for wedding photography in Calgary! The ceremony was at Devonian Gardens in downtown Calgary, and we went to Riley Park for fall wedding pictures. This was the first wedding I have photographed since my friend’s in 1997 (during university). Dusted off the old SLR and it was all shot on film; the negatives were then all …
