I love thunderstorms. The sound of the rain on the roof, while I’m curled up watching a movie.. doesn’t get much better than that. Unless it’s a wedding day, and we want to do outdoor photos of course ūüėȬ†On Kathleen and Justin’s wedding day, we took a step outside for photos and it started to pour. We got into our cars, and drove about 10 minutes where the rain magically stopped. I love dark clouds, and¬†soft¬†light so I was doing a little happy dance inside (and maybe out..). I think Kathleen and Justin might be two of the kindest people I’ve met. Kathleen is such a beautiful person inside and out. Their wedding was full of love, and lots of laughter and I left with a giant smile plastered across my face.

I went to junior high school with Joe, and high school with Lexie. They met years later, and have been in love ever since. They’re ridiculously sweet¬†together, and I was very honoured when they asked me to shoot their big day. Their wedding day was beautiful, and we had a dream team of wedding vendors. I got to work along side some of my favourite videographers Parfait Productions, and had Monica of Red Bloom Photography second shoot with me (those awesome photos of the boys getting ready are from her!). Their Sheraton Eau Claire Wedding was beautiful, everything from Lexie’s amazing sorbet coloured Lazaro dress to her stunning flowers from Flowers By Janie. It was an emotional day, full of family and love. Congratulations Lexie & Joe!

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.

Brie comes from an¬†amazing family. Her Mom recently won Wal-mart’s Mom of The Year, just to give you an idea. Her family adopted 4 kids from the Dominican Republic, and they are always helping others whether it’s helping a village (literally!), or raising money for charity. Brie takes after her Mom quite a bit. She is the most incredible step-mom a kid could ask for, with the biggest heart. Making beautiful handmade costumes, baking incredible cakes, building blanket forts, and teaching Lexi everything a little girl should know.¬†After New Years Brie came to town to go dress shopping, and we hung out and discussed wedding plans. What was supposed to be one of the¬†happiest times in her life took a halt that Monday, when her brother Damian was killed in a tragic car accident. I cannot fathom what their family went through knowing how close they were, but I can honestly say at Brie & Nathan’s wedding it felt like he was there with us. A¬†heart cut out of one of his¬†shirts (where his heart would be), and sewn inside her dress covering her heart to make sure he was close to her. I felt lucky to have been there, to witness the love, and two amazing families coming together. Everyone camped out that weekend, laughing, and sharing stories. And did I mention everyone was welcome to bring their pups, and we had brunch? It doesn’t get much better than that!

When Mike and I were little we did pretty much everything together, from trick-or-treating at North Hill Mall in our homemade costumes to tobogganing down the hill¬†followed by hot chocolate. Needless to say it was a pretty big honour when him and his then fianc√© Kati asked me to shoot their wedding at Kicking Horse. Exactly one year prior I shot Chelsea & Sean’s wedding at the exact same location, so it only makes sense that they’re two of my favourite weddings. It was an amazing weekend, which started off with a pre-wedding BBQ the night before.¬† The next morning wedding festivities started at¬†Personal Touch Salon¬†where the girls got their hair and make-up done. The ceremony had the most beautiful light, and right as they had their first kiss a fog rolled over! Mike & Kati actually designed her dress on a napkin in Vietnam, and mountain biked down the mountain while it snowed after their ceremony.¬†It was such a happy day, which made my job that much more enjoyable. Congratulations Kati & Mike!

The morning of the Wedding started at Personal Touch Salon in downtown Golden!

Terrie and Brady’s wedding took place at the Lake Louise Ski Resort, and it did not disappoint. They even had my favourite officiant¬†Robin White, so I knew it was going to be an awesome wedding. Despite some limo and traffic problems, the day went off without a hitch and was filled with love and laughter the way a wedding should be. I love the mountains, almost as much as I love weddings!
