How cute are these two?! Trevor proposed in Italy.. doesn’t get much more romantic than that. Her ring was designed by the same jeweler¬†who had designed her Aunt and Uncles rings. They compliment each other perfectly, I had so much fun with them. I cannot wait for their big day this summer, their wedding is going to be even more amazing.

What better place than a Banff engagement photography session. I love the mountains almost as much as I love these two. Make sure you leave them lots of love!

Christina & Nadine (two blog posts ago!) are not only extremely good friends, they’re also cousins. Which makes the fact that they’re both having babies that much more exciting! Henry is going to be the cutest big brother, it doesn’t get much sweeter than him. Make-up by Mira Pucchi Maquillage.

Stephanie is awesome. I met her through one of my amazing brides Rachele. She is an incredibly talented baker, and has a pretty awesome blog. Sometimes late at night I’ll be catching up on instagram, and I’ll come across her feed. Nothing worse than seeing delicious food before bed ūüėČ Clarence is smart, funny and sweet. I love them together, and had so much fun with my adventure gang in the mountain.. we may have even stopped at 5 guys (burgers and fries) on our way, haha.

I first met Nadine and Cory in the 8th grade. They ended up being high school sweethearts, were my first big wedding and one of my favourite to date. I’m so ridiculously excited for their little one to arrive, they’re going to be incredible parents. George is going to be a great big brother ūüėČ haha. Make-up and hair by the talented Diana Arich.

Coritha & Jon were married on a chilly spring day, surrounded by nothing but love. They had their reception at Corpus Christi Church, followed by their reception at the Sheraton Cavalier Calgary. There was the perfect mixture of laughter and tears, laughing, dancing and singing.

Sometimes when I blog things, I think to myself.. ‘Is anyone actually reading this?’. When Kelsey first contacted me she told me she’s been following my blog for a few years. Needless to say, she¬†instantly won me over haha. Kelsey & Gal are fun, loving and incredibly sweet. They both also have amazing families who embraced each other, and it was truly a special day where two families became one. Here’s their Calgary Zoo Wedding!

Exactly four years ago today, I went on a first date. A few weeks prior I had gone out with a couple friends dancing. We ended up going to the Rhino after, to meet up with some other friends. That’s when I met him. He was one of those friends, and the second I laid eyes on him I thought ‘that’s it’. Our first date was February 14th. He invited me to a Finn Troll show at Republik. I went to a flower shop that day and picked up this beautiful incredibly overpriced bamboo wrapped orchid. I remember walking to his building kicking myself thinking ‘Did I just spend $90 to scare this poor guy off?’ (yes, I spent $90.. part of the beauty of buying flowers on Valentines day). I clutched the vase and knocked on the door. My heart felt like it was going to race out of my chest. He opened the door and his face lit up. He told me he always swore he would marry the first girl to buy him flowers. I was that girl. We walked to the show from his place, on the way we saw a couple struggling to move some furniture into their place. Without even hesitating he helped them move all their furniture into their place. He was that kind of guy. One day in the beginning of our relationship I came to his place and he had made me up a basket of my favourite things. Things he’d listened and remembered me loving. Cap’n Crunch, Sour Skittles, you name it. Everything I loved. This burly tattooed man made me a f*&%ing care package.

This summer I was lucky enough to marry that guy. So 10 of our closest friends and family got on a plane with us for the trip of a lifetime for our wedding in Paris, France.

Now the fun part. Here’s a slideshow from the wedding. I had the insanely talented Samm Blake shoot it. She’s considered one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world, so I was extremely lucky to have her.


The day after the wedding Darryl, Jamie and I drove to Clisson/Nantes for Hellfest. It was one of the most surreal experiences I’ve had. Getting to watch our friends in Comeback Kid play, watching Black Sabbath from the front row, and getting to watch Phil Anselmo & The Illegals play a couple Pantera songs from back stage (look closely ;)).

Holy smokes. What a crazy year it’s been. As I’m wrapping up my editing from everything 2014, I figured what better time to share some of my favourites from the year. I always struggle with these posts, since I’m terrible at narrowing down photos¬†so I hope you have some hot chocolate or coffee handy to tide you over ;). I am extremely grateful that I get to photograph wonderful people for a living, and even more grateful that¬†afterwards I’m able to call them friends.
