Coltyn & Erika | Maple Dell Acres Wedding
"It feels so amazing to be touched by the person who understands your mind, the person who acknowledges your flaws, & loves your soul." - unknown.
When we first walked into the hotel where Erika was getting ready I feel like they set the pace for the day. Relaxed and happy as ever, she greeted us with a warm smile.
The guys gave the same relaxed and inviting vibe. We shared lots of laughs, and knew this would be a wicked wedding party.
The rest of the day flowed so naturally. All the details were covered and everyone had such a positive attitude.
I feel so lucky to attract simply the best clients. 2016 has been filled with s ...

Logan & Kasey | Drayton Valley Wedding Photographer
"He's not perfect. You aren't either. 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 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, but there's always one guy that is perfect for ...

Sean & Tara | Badlands Engagement
"I swear I couldn't love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow." - Leo Christopher
Having never met these two prior to the session, was a bit nerve racking. & journeying out to this amazing locating all in one day was tiring. But as soon as I saw them smile and wave I knew it would all be worth my while. I often say the most photogenic are those in love and these two are no exception. Easy going & adventurous, they trusted and followed me around the area.
I loved hearing about their love story, parents excitement & lives with one and other. We hiked around the canyon and I ended up being a red sweaty mess, ...

We Three Workshops | Banff Styled Engagement
In order to lead a fascinating life - one brimming with art, music, intrigue & romance - you must surround yourself with precisely those things.
Hair & Makeup by: The Pretty Haus
Last weekend I attended We Three Workshops in Banff. It was unreal. Because I am new to photography, self taught (for the most part), and constantly comparing myself to others; I went in feeling overwhelmed and intimidated. To simply say the workshop was unreal is an understatement. Not only were we able to learn from some of, what I believe to be, the best in the business, we also got to put our new skills to work with this styled engagement the first day.

Jeff & Kristy | Fort Calgary Wedding
"Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable." - Mary Oliver
What was magic about yesterday's wedding was not only the love these two share with each other, but those around them. & what a positive, energetic, & loving vibe everyone emitted. Normally I would be pretty exhausted road tripping to Calgary & shooting all day; but I was filled with excitement on the drive home!!
The emotion filled ceremony was wonderful & managed to give me goosebumps. We were then off for some formal photos! At every location you could tell the loving & natural connection they share.
I couldn't think of a better way to kick off the 20 ...

Adam & Leah | Kananaskis Engagement Session
It is often said that the happiest people are the most beautiful. I can honestly say that the love & happiness throughout these two's session radiated & made for lots of fun.
I have known Leah for years, having played on a ball team ages ago together in Calgary. Her and her family took me in & I often refer to them as my Calgary family. When Leah first started dating Adam, I knew something was up. She is unapologetically herself around him & could not stop smiling. I am so stoked to see a good friend happy & cannot wait for their wedding this fall!
I literally wish I had a dollar for every time I have thought how ...

Tegan & Tianna | Drayton Valley Maternity Photographer
Home is wherever I'm with you.
It was such a breath of creative fresh air incorporating a bit from in the home into this lifestyle maternity session. It's always refreshing to stray from the norm, and the outcome made my heart full.
I'm so lucky having a loving, fun, and not to mention photogenic family to capture. These four are super excited for their next chapter, and I am fortunate enough to tell their story.
I had so much fun with this, and am very interested in doing similar sessions. If you or someone you know may be interested in a lifestyle session, send me a message - I would love to hear from you!
Oh, and Happy Easter!

Spencer & Jenna | Mountain Engagement Photographer
Love is by nature fragile.
That's what makes true love so powerful.
It is that you've made a fragile thing unbreakable. - atticus
Have I mentioned that I have the most adventurous couples? ...and I LOVE it. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't SUPER corporative at our original location...so we hiked down to the bottom of a frozen waterfall instead!
These two were great. I am so thankful they trusted me to capture the bond they share & I am loving that I have an immediate connection with every client from my 2016 weddings. I know I say it too often, but people in love make my job so easy.
I still have a few weekends left this summer/fal ...

Brett & Dominique | Icefield Engagement
"Oh, the comfort. The inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person." - George Eliot
We braved the crazy weather & hiked to this unbelievable place. completely. worth. it.
This location. This couple. Unbelievable.
Dominique & Brett were the winners of the engagement session I gave away at Bridal Fantasy. After doing some research & agreeing upon this location, I could not wait to see the cave in person. Although the weather outside wasn't cooperative, inside it was unreal.
Upon getting to know them while we hiked through the snow & wind, I realized just how adorable they are. My favourite part of their story is when Bre ...

Vintage Winter Styled Shoot | Alberta Wedding Photographer
"Let's do what we love & do a lot of it." - Marc Jacobs
"A group of local vendors showcased their talents in this vintage-themed winter shoot. They chose a deep, vibrant color scheme to pop against the backdrop of a winter wonderland. The models dressed in vintage garb with accents of warm color to mimic the props. This same deep red was incorporated into the floral arrangements and table settings. The creatives behind the shoot set fire to the vintage inspiration, resulting in a unique flare. “We loved working together and could not be more pleased with how our first styled shoot together turned out,” said photographer Angela Brzus.
