After a busy couple of months of officially making Edmonton our home, and taking possession of a new build in Chappelle Garden in the midst of a busy wedding season, I spent most of the month of August travelling.  First to North Carolina, spending some time in the mountains at the Parker Pfister Workshop.  To […]

  One of my favourite weddings to date!  It was the biggest backyard celebration I have ever seen, complete with a giant reception tent, gorgeous ceremony set up, live music from Shantelle Davidson, bouncy castles to keep the kids occupied, and beers around the fire pit. Gaylene and Brian were happy to host the best […]

This session was a Christmas gift that Ferne decided to save and use it to celebrate their 37 years of wedded bliss.  These two ooze energy, fun and laughter.  The secret to a happy marriage? I think it might be! Ferne came prepared with several outfit changes and a contagious smile.  Perry brought the laughs […]

A place both the bride & the grooms mother are from, the final resting place of the brides grandparents, but most importantly a place where the brides parents met thirty two years ago the brides hometown of Janvier AB. Located 110Km south of Fort […]

When coast to coast comes together you get a fun filled, carefree celebration full of love.  This British Columbia girl met her Newfoundland guy at a party.  She cried on her way home, her heart full of joy, she knew she had met “the one”.  Judy told this story during the reception, excitedly telling us […]

Where to even begin with this one. When Carlene called me for maternity photos, I wondered where the time went.  How did we get here so fast?  She was barely a teenager, a lover of volleyball, an outgoing happy girl just yesterday, I swear.  As I photographed her and Chris together that first time, with all […]

During all weddings, I focus so much on the bride and groom, and those first few rows of family and closest friends at the ceremony, that I rarely truly see the faces of everyone else present and witnessing two beautiful people make lifelong promises to one another.  Shannon and Trevor’s church ceremony was no different.

I always write a “Year in Review” blog post on December 31, and could easily do it again this year, telling you all about the special couples and families that I met this year  – and yes, they definitely were special and amazing, and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to meet and […]

Thomas planned the whole thing.  He would tell Erin that he had entered into a contest for a free photo session and won.  During the session he would propose.  Thomas really wanted to pop the question at Birchwood Trails, where they often walk their dog. He timed it perfectly.  I would send a “You Won!” email to him […]

You know when you meet a couple and instantly get all good feels about them?  You just somehow know that they are meant to be?  That’s how I felt when I met Karin and Steve.  From the first click of the camera these two were just enjoying each other, laughing, joking, running hand in hand, […]
