Jeff & Ola | Banff Engagement Session
Date someone who is home & an adventure all at once.
HMUA: Blush Artistry
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?!

Matt & Larissa | Riverside Engagement Session
"We are never so vulnerable as when we love". - Sigmund Freud
With all of this warm weather, we had to chase winter to a riverbed by Devon; which was totally worth it! We wandered around the paths, and got to know one and other a little better. (I am still amazed at how the connection is made between people I have never met & my little business!!) I loved how these two laughed in almost every photo, and their love for one and other always effortlessly shown through.
annnnnnnd right after this she almost ate the ring!!! (oooops!!) haha!!!
I am now booking 2018 couples & have just a FEW slots left for 2 ...

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?!

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!
Hair & Makeup: Sparrow Beauté
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.
