Bride and groom with pitch fork and sledgehammer standing in front of wood pile. Country themed wedding photo ideas

One of my favourite weddings to date!  This was the biggest backyard country themed wedding celebration I have ever seen.  It was complete with a giant reception tent, live music from Shantelle Davidson, bouncy castles to keep the kids occupied, and beers around the fire pit.

These two were happy to host the best day ever at their gorgeous property in Saprae Creek.  Brian worked hard before the wedding prepping and perfecting the massive grounds surrounding their home.  And, it was perfect.  The beautifully manicured lawns, gorgeous flower beds, and perfectly stacked logs made for an amazing wedding day backdrop.  Events with Vizability worked their magic decorating a country lovin’ scene with fresh flowers in beer bottle vases, hay bales and shot gun shells.  The result was a perfect reflection of the outdoor living lifestyle that this couple is so very passionate about.

They were excited for this day to come.  But they were even happier to bring their collective three boys officially together as a family. Keeping a straight face was impossible for these two.  Even when instructed, they couldn’t help themselves and both gave a little smirk.  They were just having the happiest day, and they couldn’t hide it.

Gaylene and Brian, thank you so much for inviting me to capture this day for you and your wonderful, funy and handsome boys.  It was a privilege to spend the day with you, and your beautiful friends and family!

Hi, I'm Chrystal (she/her) and I'm so happy you're here! 

If you're looking to feast your eyes on couples in love, raw emotion and vibrant scenes, you've come to the right place.

I'm an Edmonton wedding photographer for couples madly in love, and those who love to laugh right from their hearts (and bellies).  Over the past 10 years I've been very lucky to photograph weddings of all kinds and sizes including Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Fijian, Chinese weddings and all sorts of fusions.  I've photographed teeny tiny elopements to grand celebrations, LGBTQ+ weddings and inter-racial weddings, as well as destination weddings in places like Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Las Vegas, Canmore, Banff, and Newfoundland - in addition to the beautiful Edmonton weddings and Fort McMurray weddings I've had the privilege to be a part of.  

I would love to here more about you.  LET'S CONNECT!
