I don’t know why, but blogging weddings is really intimidating to me. It’s a ton of photos to cut down for a small snippet of the day, and when there are emotional connections to photos I always want them included!
I’m going to do my best to get our weddings from last year up before this year’s are ready to blog…I dont know if it will happen but wish me luck!
I remember being excited about Melissa and Curtis’ wedding, but holy man when I walked into the reception my jaw literally dropped. The building from the outside was so ordinary, and we were transported into a Paris themed wonderland the moment we stepped inside. Melissa’s mom told me Melissa had been collecting items to decorate her wedding with for years…YEARS! That is amazing to me. Seriously worth it, it all came together in the most stunning display. Who knew we could feel like we were in Paris after driving through rainy St. Albert!
On top of all of that, Melissa rented out The Little White School in St. Albert for some of their photos, since she is a teacher. It made for a unique spot; I love when our couples think of ways to personalize their day.
Your wedding day was gorgeous. The people in your life fun. We had a great time with you and Im so happy we were there to celebrate with you.
It’s just them. Just the boys. No fuss, no muss, no distraction.
I can’t even tell you how much I love having this comparison to see just how much they have changed in the last year. I think we are going to start offering this as a mini session to clients periodically so you can see the change in your kids too.
If you know me, you have probably heard me say “everything happens for a reason”. I know it can’t apply to everything, but a lot of the time, things work out the way they’re meant to.
Sarah & Braden and I went to 2 different parking lots the night we were meeting, and my phone wasn’t working properly so we ended up starting their session a lot later than planned. But the light was perfect and the evening was warm, so even though we started a bit frazzled, we settled in quickly and had a great night.
We’re traveling to Saskatchewan next summer for their wedding! The location looks beautiful, we can’t wait to shoot somewhere new.
This crooked dock holds a ton of memories for me, and it brings us an incredibly amount of joy.
I had promised myself I wasn’t going to use an iPhone photo for this challenge, but that’s the camera I had with me when it was utterly still and this amazing reflection happened, so an iPhone camera is better than no camera, right?
When a family this close to our heart wants a family session done, you better believe we’ll do it! We’ve now photographed 2 of their weddings, maternity, newborn, 6 months, 1 year. The list seems to keep going with these guys.
Hands down, some of our biggest supporters. Thank you isn’t even enough to say to them for being some of our biggest cheerleaders. You guys are AMAZING.
They’re also a really fun family, I’m so glad I got to spend this warm summer evening with them.
(and I also adore that so many families with adult children are having photos done again!)
I met Felisha and Cody in downtown Edmonton on a beautiful March evening. It’s not to often that here in Edmonton we get to be outside soaking up the sunshine at that time of year, so we made the most of it – time for a couple of locations and an outfit change.
Most people have never had professional photos before their wedding day, so we use engagement sessions to get to know each other a little better and have some fun. Felisha and Cody are a great example of why we think they are so important. Like so many grooms to be Cody is not big on being the centre of attention, but he was happy to do the photos for Felisha. We tailored the session to make everyone comfortable, to reflect their lifestyle, to put them at ease.
Our time together was fantastic and I think that is reflected in the beautiful photos we have for their engagement album.
These two are a perfect fit and we cant wait for their wedding to kick off.
