There is something so incredibly brave about eloping, and focusing on your love for one and other.
We have been planning this elopement for quite some time and it was been incredibly hard to keep it a secret!! I'm so humbled to document such an intimate showing of love.
Here's to many more years
Elopements definitely aren't for everyone, but it looks good on these two <3

Damon & Jenna | Waterfall Engagement Session
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through y ...

"Listen. A healthy relationship isn't living vicariously through one and other. True love isn't someone being there at your side every moment of every day, but being free, and encouraged, to pursue your own passions, and then sharing in the spoils of your triumphs together." - Beau Taplin
I've been dreaming about doing a photo session on my in-laws place since I first started taking photos. It is one of the most incredible places. And what better couple to pose for these photos than my sister-in-law & her boyfriend!
Located on the South Island, their farm boasts gorgeous mountain views & lush pastures; but the views were nothing c ...

Cody & Leah | Fairmont Engagement Session
"What you should look for in a partner is someone who grounds your ego but lifts your spirit,
who moves you to pursue your wildest dreams but reels you back to reality when you need it,
who applauds you on the rewards of your successes but never allows you to lose sigh of the reason you started." - Beau Taplin
Having grown up with Cody, I am super stoked for him to find such a gem!! I have loved getting to know Leah more & it was an easy answer when they asked to have their engagement photos taken in Fairmont. The long drive was made worthwhile by witnessing friends in love.
Living outside of a small town, I d ...

Jason & Angela | Adventurous Jasper Engagement Session
"Someday, all the love you have given away
will find its way back to you
& finally stay." - unknown
What an afternoon! I drove through rain / snow & sleet, hoping that the weather would hold off for photos. & of course it did!! It also created the dreamiest of backdrops for this lovely couple. I am a firm believer that the most photogenic of people are those in love & it couldn't have proven more true for this session.
I always offer complimentary engagement sessions for a few reasons. I love getting acquainted with couples & introducing them to my photography style. I f ...

Dan & Hadleigh | Rockies Heli Elopement
"You keep me safe.
I'll keep you wild." - Atticus
There is something so brave & romantic about eloping. I feel like it encompasses what a wedding is supposed to be; focusing on your love for each other & not getting caught up in everything else that usually comes with your big day.
My love and admiration for Dan & Hadleigh grew throughout their day. My heart fluttered as they exchanged their personalized vows & had their first kiss. I couldn't help but smile behind the camera at the way they looked at one and other. Truly in love.

Alexa & Lance | Farm Engagement Session
"Your soulmate is not that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being that everyone has idealized, but the ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second." - anonymous
I loved this engagement session. It was so fun to take photos around their farm with their animals, in meaningful places. They were also absolute troopers, bearing the cold like champs!! I always offer couples a complimentary engagement session when booking a wedding for a few reasons, but the main one being it give ...

What a wonderful feeling when your friend finds the one he loves & she is equally as amazing as him. Love these two & loved being able to catch up and laugh together. This was part 2 of the wild snowstorm, and they were champs!
There is something different about photographing friends that I absolutely love. Thank you all for trusting me to document your love & relationships!!
My weekends are currently filled with engagement sessions, and I love hearing about everyone's wedding plans. It's not the amount of money y ...

Ruth & Derek | Banff Engagement Session
LOVE. it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. love never fails. - Corinthians 13:7-8
The roads and weather were frightful, but the company was a delight. I feel like I am always repeating myself, but I am SO fortunate to have such great clients. I love how I am able to get to know people during their engagement session & I always feel like we leave as friends. Ruth and Derek were no exception. AND how beautiful is this floral crown from Willow Flower Co.?
They braved the blizzard with laughs and love....all in the name of a good photo, right?
I cannot wait for these two's big d ...

Peter & Amanda | Pyramid Lake Engagement Session
"A soulmate is a meeting of mind, spirit & body with someone whose strengths, flaws & energy perfectly compliment your own. It is steady ground. A shelter in a storm. A point on a map when you are wayward & lost. The promise of a place to come home to for as long as you are here in the world." - Beau Taplin
Peter & Amanda were the lucky winners of my Instagram giveaway! Their engagement story (which included their puppy) stole my heart!! We shared a fun afternoon together filled with so much love & lots of laughs in such a gorgeous location. How lucky are we to live so close to such a beautiful place?!
