Mel & Mike | Adventurous Jasper Engagement
I love when people arrive as clients & leave as friends.
These two were troopers, hiking around through the snow & who would guess it was -12 out?!
Makeup by: Makeup by Amanda Makeup Artist
All of these sessions make me SO excited for this summer & the weddings I will be documenting. I feel like every time I blog I am saying how lucky I am to have the most fantastic clients; but it really is true!!
If you are engaged and looking for a photographer, please send me a message - I would love to hear from you.

Travis & Murray | Canmore Engagement Session
"I just need you.
and some sunsets" - atticus
I have followed Travis (from Calyx Floral Design) for ages & felt like I knew her! It is always nerve racking taking photos for another creative, but they made my job SO incredibly easy. When two people love & are comfortable with one and other, they roll through "poses" so easily. Little would you know the wind was almost blowing them away & their fingers & faces were FREEZING. #troopers.
This is probably my favourite photo (Murray you are such a good sport!!).
Engagement sessions are now in full swing & I am so lucky to get to photograph the best of lov ...

Ashley & Tino | Calgary In Home Session
Home is wherever I'm with you.
Often times, people are the most comfortable in their own homes, on their own bed. I have now started in-home couple sessions; which is a great alternative to bearing the elements.
All you need is a home, your love & some tunes.
A HUGE thank you to Ashley and Tino for allowing me into there lives & letting me document their love in their home.
It was an absolute pleasure to capture a couple entirely in love.
If you are interested in an intimate in-home session, send me a message - I would love to hear from you!

Nathan & Megan | Mountain Engagement Session
"I got lost in him,
and it's the kind of lost that's exactly like being found." - Claire Lazebnik
It is sort of stressful for me never having met my clients prior to taking their photos, but it turned out to be a small world & it was almost like we knew each other! These two stuck it out in the cold & wind...all in the name of a good photo!

Megan hired Nathan as her ferrier years ago & the rest, as they say, is history. We toured around Abraham Lake & got to know one and other a bit more. I always say you can tell how in love people are by how easy it is to take their photos.... & of cour ...

Adam & Leah | Canmore Wedding Photographer
Marriage Advice from 1886:
Let your love be stronger than your hate and anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Believe the best rather than the worst.
People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them.
Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.
Please hand this down to your children and your children's children.

Armin & Meagan | Banff Engagement Photographer
"I am certain of nothing
except the holiness of the heart's affections
and the truth of imagination." - John Keats
When I first met Meagan & Armin I knew I wanted to photograph them! You could tell how in love they were & dedicated to one and other. Every time they spoke of their wedding, their eyes lit up. Needless to say, their engagement session did not disappoint. Lake Minnewanka is one of my favourite places to take photos. A gorgeous turquoise lake surrounded by the rockies makes for a perfect backdrop.

Starting the session with an amazing backdrop & ending with beers. Perfect day. I could serio ...

Jay & Jill | Riverbend Wedding
Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures. - Lewis Carroll
It isn't often that I am meeting people for the first time on their wedding day; so to say the least I was nervous. We organized a quick rainy first look & then toured to some of their favourite parts of the city. My nerves were put at ease when I realized just how in love they were. Always laughing, smiling, & embracing one and other. The rain didn't put a damper on their spirits, but I am guessing they are tired of hearing "rain is good luck"! haha!
Concluding my fall weddings is bitter sweet! I feel like I have been SO busy this month & ...

Brad & Dusty | Fall Engagement Photographer
"Find someone who makes you realize three things;
one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt & shared." - unknown
It was pouring rain on my way to their session & right after it. Some might say luck was on our side, others that someone dialled it up for us.
These two. I seriously could not get enough of them. I have known Dusty for a while & it was awesome to catch up & meet Brad. Dusty said she always wanted to date someone who worked in the same field as her, and when she met Brad it was fate. You can tell how ki ...

Trevor & Carlene | Central Alberta Engagement Photographer
"There is nothing prettier in the world
Than a girl in love." - Atticus
Makeup by: Sparrow Beaute
I have known Carlene forever, having grown up in the same small town. She is the type of person that emits such a positive energy wherever she goes. When she asked me to be their photographer, I was over the moon. How could I not be?! I met Trevor for the first time on the night of this shoot. It was easy to see why Carlene is so in love! They are seriously the cutest together & made my job so friggin easy!!
I seriously could have posted all of their photos, I am so in love with them! It makes me excited for 2017!!
I am now booking 2017 wed ...

Spencer & Jenna | Rocking R Guest Ranch Wedding
“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, b ...
