Ever wondered what to do for your guests to avoid an awkward break between the ceremony and reception? How about choosing a venue where your guests get to wander the amazing sights of the Calgary Zoo! It was a stunning location for Katelyn and Brodie’s wedding day and I was ecstatic about every single sight we chose for their wedding photography. I must admit, as a wedding photographer, I have had my fingers crossed hoping that one day I would
We often have couples asking for those raw, candid moments that show real smiles and interactions – nothing fake or too posed. WE LOVE REAL EMOTIONS. These two were such good sports going along with all our goofy prompts! How do we capture our couples being their natural selves? We start by giving you simple instructions like ‘cuddle up’ or ‘give her a bear hug’ and then offer little prompts. We might give you something to talk about or a
YES I would like to photograph your new puppy! AND you want to propose to your girlfriend?! Heck yeah! As a wedding and couple photographer this is the kind of email you dream of receiving in your inbox. I would rearrange my calendar to make this happen and help you plan the whole thing if you wanted! Haha. In all seriousness, these moments are so worth capturing and I was honored to be asked to witness and photograph this moment
Celeste and Taylor have been married for almost six months now!! (Flashback to spending the most amazing day as her bridesmaid, crying way too many happy tears, and getting to photograph their first dance!) I was so excited when they were up for doing this in-home breakfast date photography session I had been dreaming up for them! The story and playful prompts were curated just for them to capture and mark this special moment in time. It is a way
This lifestyle newborn photography session was calm in the sweetest newborn kind of way but equally full of spunk as Henrik’s brother’s counted his toes, squished his face, stroked his hair, and played next to their new favorite family member. Brotherhood at it’s finest. Katherine and Peter have so many memories in this gallery including tender cuddles, newborn details, nursery moments, and energetic wrestles with dad and that is exactly what a lifestyle newborn session is all about! I was
After 11 years together, Kirsten and John vowed the rest of their lives to each other before their two children and parents. They chose the beautiful log mansion, the Riverside Chateau, for their intimate ceremony celebration. John waited in the foyer while Kirsten got ready in a private suite upstairs sharing tender moments with her parents and kids. An unexpected gift from dad… … a princess cut diamond necklace for his princess. Family headed to the foyer, awaiting the bride’s
This couples adventure photography session at Cat Creek Falls was more amazing than we could have dreamed!! Nadine and Adam trusted us as their photographers to capture their love as they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary! We used a variety of techniques to capture the waterfall and scenery in interesting ways as we prompted them to dance, cuddle up, whisper sweet nothings, and take a moment to just breathe each other in.
This is what snowy mountain photography adventures are made of! Gorgeous glistening snow and that sun giving just enough warmth to keep us outside adventuring and taking in all the beautiful sights nature has to offer. I am thrilled to be photographing Savannah and Matthew’s wedding next summer in Edmonton. Savannah and I (Ashley) haven’t lived in the same city for a while and reconnecting to celebrate her and Matthew has been such a joy. They are the kind of
I have learned that when adventuring – you just go! No matter what the forecast says, you just bundle up and go! As a wedding, couple and family photographer I am always encouraging my clients to not be afraid of unpredictable weather. Stormy or cloudy skies can create some of the most dynamic backdrops and interesting light! This day was no exception. Just epic. The light continually shifted, hiding behind the clouds and then breaking through in a heavenly glow
Chandler is finally in her senior year and celebrated with a photo shoot in Sheep River Provincial Park where we explored waterfalls, mountain views, and rivers. It is such a diverse area and has become one of my absolute favorite areas for photography. It is a little drive outside Calgary so I was ecstatic when Chandler and her mom were just as excited as I was to go to this location! Seeing the yellow larch trees pop out among the

Matt and Brooke adventured from Ontario, leaving behind cherished friends and supportive families in order for Matt to begin his career as a firefighter in the city of Calgary. Jeff (hubby/second shooter!) and Matt met when they signed up for a specialty course on the job. The crew developed amazing friendships bringing all of them and their significant others together on many occasions for parties, chill pub nights, and lots and lots of coffee. This is how Jeff and I
Lifestyle newborn sessions are the best because they are so cozy, give kids freedom to play, and don’t require the family to pack up and go anywhere! There can be so many appointments in the first week or so of a baby’s life and to be able to pause time in your own home and just take a deep breath and cuddle can be just what you need. These precious days can be lost in the craziness of the adjustment
This little girl was born just in time for cherry blossom season and it has definitely been on my photography bucket list to do a session surrounded by those soft pink petals. Fortunately, the Auer family had the most gorgeous tree just across the street – perfect for their lifestyle newborn photography session. We included lots of cuddles, tossing petals in the air, and other goofy shenanigans that kids love.
Crossed off an awesome bucket list item when Laura + Chris agreed to let me do their engagement photos at a parkade!!! Ok, so that might not sound romantic… until you see these photos!! We met just before sunset so we would be able to see the lights inside the the buildings as well as the painted sky reflecting off of the windows. And then…they danced, admired the sunset, and laughed a lot – just like you should on a
From family heirlooms and the groom’s hand picked tie from Italy, to music notes on the wine bottles and the cat who had to check out the dress and join in on portraits – Katrina and Brayden’s wedding was full of sentimental touches. There is a lovely path around the property that they had walked many times while deep in conversation, sharing joys and heartaches. It was here that Katrina and Brayden would meet for their first look. Brayden dropped to
Meagan + Phil’s Badlands Engagement Session Well this session was an absolute dream! I had posted a little while ago about wanting to do a photography session in the Alberta badlands and Phil + Meagan messaged me saying they were totally in!!! Meagan and I worked together to style this shoot, refining the details and hand picking the flowers and greenery for her bouquet. I was seriously way too excited and even slipped off some rock and scraped up my
GAH, THESE PHOTOS ARE ROMANTIC! We are just not the type of photographers to be ok with the same-old-same-old. We had to push the boundaries and this is our newest creative experience! We take our Ikelite underwater camera housing on hikes so we can get right in the water and the spray of the falls with you! We are SO glad that Devin and Bre trusted us to do something epic for their wedding portraits and I think the location
The past year has been quite the adventure for Adam and Courtney. For some couples, engagement and wedding planning is all the joy and chaos that one year can handle but Adam and Courtney had other crazy plans. Adam + Courtney were one of 10 teams in THE AMAZING RACE Canada Season 6 Hero’s Edition!! Each week we gathered with Adam and Courtney’s family and friends to watch the episodes and cheer them on to VICTORY! Yes, that’s right. They
