Kaitlin was the type of bride that had everything organized weeks ahead of time, schedules laid out and a clear vision of how the day will go.  By the wedding day she was ready to relax and take it all in. While Events with Vizability worked their magic in the ballroom downstairs, decorating the room […]

Where to start… Anyone that knows me knows that Audrey has been a big part of my life since coming to Fort McMurray.  I was so fortunate to meet her on February 4, 2002 (yes, I remember the date, it’s our friendiversary!) when we started a new job together.  I arrived first and sat waiting […]

I’ve been taking a post-wedding season break to spend some time with family in Newfoundand over the past week.  It’s been a much needed, wonderful break, but I’m excited to get back to a schedule full of fall photos before the snow flies (we may cutting that one close!).  I’m also looking forward to sending […]

As the saying goes, “everything happens for a reason”.  That couldn’t be more true for these two.  Their story is really something that touched me and many other of their guests.  I won’t tell the full story here, because it really is theirs to share.  I will say that after heartbreak and tragedy, Tracy and Mark […]

Brittany and Blair were planning a wedding at MacDonald Island when the wildfires happened.  Like many other evacuees, they were forced to reassess plans, priorities, and for at least a week during the most uncertain times, the future of their life in Fort McMurray.   As you can imagine (or as you know!), life was […]

I’ve known Carlene since she was barely a teenager and had the pleasure to watch her grow into a young woman.  Now she is a mom and soon to be a wife…and I’m wondering where the time could have possibly gone.  It was just yesterday that she was leaving for trips with her high school […]

Shane booked me before the evacuation for an anniversary session for himself and his lovely wife, Yvonne.  He feared that the plan could not go ahead when life in Fort McMurray was so uncertain.  Also, he had hidden cash away to pay for their day and was certain Yvonne had caught him red handed while […]

Before the fire in Fort McMurray, these photos were added to this blog post but the words were not.  I can usually muster up a few words, but for a couple of days before the fire I couldn’t seem to get the thoughts out of my head and into this post. Now I know why… […]

It was just Charmaine and I standing in the sand on the beach.  The reception was over and Chance had ran back to the reception location to get something that Charmaine mentioned she had left behind.  She said “You know he’s not just like this because it’s our wedding day.  He’s like this all the […]

Before this session, Shantelle sent me a link to her new release “Faster Now”.  A super fun, catchy and flirty song, so girly, I instantly loved it and started imagining a super feminine and fun shoot.  Then we met.  My gosh, this girl is a sweetheart!  We instantly hit it off and spent the day […]
