I met these two and immediately was excited for their wedding. They were friendly, excited, easy going. I really wanted to photograph this wedding – they’re gorgeous, fun, and there is so much thought going into their day. It’s going to be amazing, I know it already.
We wanted to do something really different for their engagement session – well what could be more different than Edmonton in the fall (which is when they are having their wedding) – but the Rocky Mountains in the middle of winter!
There were a lot of reasons this session shouldn’t have gone this well. I was super pregnant (I had Max 3 days after we shot this), they both were under the weather. We all thought about cancelling, but no one did.
We met just outside of Banff, braved the Alberta winter, and the results were stunning. I am beyond excited for their traditional Indian wedding this fall and to spend some more time with these two.
A gentle soul for a dad and a cheeky fun loving mom. This baby is going to get the best of both of them and be spoiled with love.
This session was supposed to be one of our last before Max arrived, but with him coming 3 weeks early, Gareth got us home from the hospital, settled in with my cousin and my best friend, and he was out in the beautiful Edmonton winter to photograph one of our very favourite couples. I was SO sad I missed it, but he did such an amazing job, the session couldn’t have gone better.
It’s going to be a big summer as I’m photographing his or her aunt’s wedding in the fall, I have a feeling they will be playing a big role.
Love you guys so so much, so happy for you, and I just can’t wait to meet this little one.
It’s pretty amazing to be able to photograph my good friends. There is something about capturing a family that I know, that I spend time with, that I adore.
Claire is a total bundle of energy so I was all ready to chase her around during their shoot. But she was amazing! Laughing and twirling and dancing, hugging her baby brother Gavin and just being her adorable self.
The Edmonton autumn morning was beautiful, the company perfect, and I’m smitten with the outcome.
You guys are a wonderful, beautiful family. I feel so lucky to have you for my friends.
Oh sweet Mr Tucker. He was such a lovely newborn to photograph! I reconnected with his mom (we went to jr high school together!) at her maternity session. It’s so fun to watch these baby bellies turn into little humans.
Thanks so much for bringing Tucker in to see us. I loved the props you brought along and we’re so happy we could incorporate them into the shoot. (Tucker’s initials are TSP – hence the teaspoon in the photos!)
I met Miranda and her mama this past summer when I was doing photos for Mommy Connections North. Miranda was an easy baby to work with – super photogenic and happy – right from the start. And her mom was so sweet!
I was thrilled when Emily contacted me to photograph Miranda for her one year cake smash. Her photo sitting outside in the flowers is one that still stands out to me among the hundreds of Mommy Connections photos I did.
Miranda was really serious the day of her session, but we put a book in her hands and she was a happy camper!
They also added in some family photos to the session, always fun!
Thanks so much for coming to see us guys. We had a blast! And awesome job on the homemade cake Emily, it looked pro.
Fall in Edmotnon is fleeting. The wind is strong and sweeps away these gorgeous colours a lot faster than any photographer would want. When the snow fell early September I thought for sure we were going to miss out on the beautiful autumn colours.
Mother nature was good to me this season.
Alex and Jeremy kept telling me they didn’t know what to do in front of the camera. I just kept telling them to be themselves, and the rest would take care of itself.
It totally did. You guys laughed and played and cuddled and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Your photos are stunning, your company was lovely, and I can’t wait for your wedding next year. We’re going to have a blast!
