With time for just a quick blog today, I wanted to showcase the lovely wedding of Courtney and Vance. It was such a wonderful day… even if the groom had the flu!! He was such a trooper and made his bride so happy by putting on his smiley face for all the photos! Way to go Vance!! Vance and Courtney {married} 005.jpg

One day I received an email from a wonderful woman asking if I would be interested in travelling to Nova Scotia to photograph her wedding. The answer was HECK YA! I had never been out East (yes, bad Canadian, I know!) and I was so excited to not only tour the countryside, but to also take some of the most magical photos I’ve ever taken.

Matt and Kelly’s wedding was held at the beautiful Pictou Lodge in Nova Scotia. This place was just incredible with all the rocks and the ocean waves crashing behind us. There was also do shortage of emotion when it came to these two, I have never seen so many tears in my entire life! lol. But it was so great… you could just feel how much they loved each other and how much they were ready for this day.

I want to thank the bride and groom, Matt and Kelly, for taking me to this special place. I will never forget this wedding and am so excited for you to spend your life with your soul mate. xoxo

Prepare yourself for an incredible bog! This wedding took place at the beautiful Mapel Dell Farm near Innisfail, Alberta. The location was to die for… and any future bride thinking about booking this place should just do it! Now! You won’t be disappointed.

Nicole looked stunning in her wedding gown, which I may have been drooling over all day! It may be one of the most beautiful gowns I’ve photographed to date!! And The groom was setting trends by ditching the traditional jacket and rolling up his sleeves to create a relaxed yet sophisticated look. All the wedding details meshed so well together for a beautiful rustic chic day to remember. But don’t let all this perfection fool you into thinking it was a dull day… the reception was a full on party!!!!!! Sheer fun an excitement from beginning to end.

I am indebted to Tom and Nicole… more than they will ever know, for trusting in me to be the one to create the memories they will treasure forever. Much love to the happy bride and groom! xoxo

Backyard weddings have been an ongoing theme with me last year… and I am sooooo hapy for them. Not only are they incredibly beautiful, they are extremely intimate and full of personal touches. Morgan and Melissa had non-stop personal touches! There were handmade wooden benches, fans with the order of ceremony on them, and the most incredible arbor covered in sweet peas!!!
The rest of the day followed suit, with a rustic backdrop behind the head table at the reception to sweet treats to keep all the guests on a sugar high!!! I would have expected nothing less from this couple who were so full of life and energy. There were so many moments that will last in my memory forever… but the one thing that stuck with me the most is how I was treated like family by everyone. Big hugs to you, Morgan and Melissa, and I wish you both en eternity of wedded bliss!

As far as backyard weddings go, this one is a show stopper! Kayla and Greg were married this past summer on one of the hottest days of the year, and while the sun blazed, I was completely taken back by the breathtaking yard that Kayla’s parents had spent all summer grooming for this BIG day. Not only was their ceremony site incredible, but the reception venue had the most besutiful dance floor and stunning chandelier… way to go Drayton Valley!!!! But we all know that the REAL eye candy that day was the bride and groom, who looked as though they had stepped off the pages of a magazine. Grag and Kayla, I hope your wedding was everthing you dreamed of and more. I wish you an eternity of love!!! Kayla and Greg {married} 059.jpg

This wedding was the epitome of beautiful country weddings. The ceremony was on Leah’s parents farm, she was brought to the ailse on a horse drawn carriage driven by her father and the ring bearer was one of her favorite horses. The day was just beautiful and I am so excited to share these images to you.

Let the drooling begin! Wyatt and Vanessa’s wedding was everything they had hoped for. A day filled with friends, family and loads of laughter (I think I may have had something to do with that… I will explain later!). Vanessa’s flowers were hand picked from their garden, and the stunning ceremony was set on Wyatt’s family farm. It was these lovely personal touched that made the day even more spectacular!

Now, I mentioned how I may have had something to do with the laughter. Well, it’s true. Not only did I have bulls and horses photo bombing me (yes BULLS!!!), I also had fire ants crawl up my leg, fell partially into a swamp, had a frog jump on me and also had the lovely stench of cow poop all over my clothes (don’t ask how it even got on there!!!). I had a few members of the bridal party say that I was the best entertainment all day!! lol. But we all know that the REAL stars of the show were Wyatt and Vanessa… the worlds most adorable couple ever!!!

On a warm (HOT) Tuesday afternoon in July, Art and Amy invited their closest friends and family to join them in the celebration of their love. Amy walked down the aisle that was lined with the most beautiful flowers, and Art had a few tears in his eyes… one of the sweetest groom reactions ever!! The whole day was picture perfect.

Art and Amy, you are both the greatest! Seriously, the best ever! You have such a wonderful glow inside of you that is so beautiful. I can’t wait to see the two of you grow old together and show everyone how love ought to be 🙂

Backyard weddings have quickly become one of my favorite weddings to shoot. They are so laid back, fun and family oriented. Andrea and Olivier had all of that at their wonderful “backyard” (aka massive acreage) wedding. There were tears of joy shed and glasses raised to a beautiful couple. They enjoyed all the warmth of having the support of thier close family and friends. Not only that, but they have welcomed me with open arms and made me part of their lives. Here’s to a wonderful life together!

Oh wow!! It has been a while since I have blogged. I have really let time slip away on me lately. This past summer was a whirlwind of weddings, and the fall blew me away with so many family photos that I barely had a chance to do anything but eat, sleep, shoot, edit. Now that things are getting quieter around here (snow in the forecast, anyone?), I will have more time to update my blog and show you all the fabulous shoots I have been doing over the past few months.

Todays blog features a fun and sweet couple, Keri and Kurt. These two had such incredible chemistry with each other, I can only imagine how amazing their wedding day will be. I am so excited for that big day next year. Here are a few from our beautiful autumn evening engagement session. Enjoy.
