I have been looking forward to Courtney and Jeff’s wedding since the spring. When I shot Courtney and Jeff’s engagement everything was just so easy. They looked great, we got along great, the chemistry was evident, and the pictures showed it. I couldn’t wait to make more images of them. They are a gorgeous couple, don’t you agree?

In the days leading up to the wedding, Edmonton experienced unseasonably warm weather. The mercury hit the double digits and much of the snow melted. Courtney had been hoping for a snowy winter wedding, and the day before the wedding it got cold and it snowed on her wedding day!

The ceremony and reception were both held in the Wedgewood room at the Edmonton Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. The team at FaBLOOMosity did an incredible job with the flowers.

Yang proposed to Grace in Banff so it was an obvious choice for them to have Banff engagement photos!  Despite some chilly and windy conditions, we had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful natural areas around the town of Banff.  This sweet couple was up for anything including hiking up a hill in heeled boots (Grace, not Yang of course…) and snuggling in the snow.  I can’t wait for our next shoot together!

I first met Alexis when she was a bridesmaid for Amanda & Foster several years ago, and she was a bridesmaid again for Jeanelle & Mike last year.  Her over the top bubbly personality drew me to her immediately, and she has such a fantastic group of girlfriends/family that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know through the weddings and also the festivities leading up to Alexis & Tyler’s big day.  Tyler is funny, and very hard working, and I can only imagine how much he and Alexis laugh together. They met at a party through mutual friends, and their relationship grew strong and slow over time.

This was my last wedding of the year (WOO!) and I want to give a huge shout out to Alexis & Tyler and their whole bridal party for being a total blast, and Sam for his hard work shooting with me not only on this wedding but for the last year.

What a day. Anne and George’s wedding was held one day before the first big snowflakes of the winter descended upon Edmonton. From the pictures you would never know that it is cold. We spend most of our time in the lush forests in the Muttart Conservatory.

George adores Anne and she was so happy all day. The speeches from family and friends painted a picture of Anne as a woman with a great heart who is willing to do anything to help others. George was spoken of as a man who strongly believes in family and his family has welcomed Anne into their home many times.

Congratulations Anne and George!

The first thing that Stephanie said to me when I got to her house for getting ready photos was, “How’s the weather?” Stephanie Barsby is a meteorologist for CBC. As an avid CBC Radio One listener I hear her weather reports almost every day on the Radioactive program. So you can imagine how excited I was to shoot her wedding. There was a cold snap leading up to the wedding, but as it turned out, the weather that day was beautiful.

She had a gorgeous bridal party. The guys side, most of them from Kinuso, AB, were a lot of fun. They certainly kept my second shooter Melissa on her toes during the getting ready pictures. Ben and Stephanie are most certainly in love, and together with their children they make a wonderful family together.

At the reception I was placed at a table with most of the Radioactive hosts. They are a down to earth bunch in person. It’s no wonder that I enjoy their personalities so much on the radio.

Congratulations Stephanie and Ben!

Justin’s dad described Linda & Justin as ‘twitterpated’, and after spending time with them I think it’s a really accurate assessment.  Adorable would be another very appropriate term.  They planned a classically beautiful wedding at St. Joseph’s Basilica and the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton. It was a perfect fall day for these two. They met at the University of Alberta when paired together for a school project, and the rest is history! It was awesome to celebrate with them and see their two families join together.  Congratulations Linda & Justin!

Linda & Justin envisioned something unique for their decor- a mix of all the elements.  It was my first time seeing frozen centerpieces!

A rare occasion – Michael and I shot this wedding together! Here is some behind the scenes (including evidence that I’m a workaholic, I pitched in to put some final touches on the table decor).

Sherri & Ken have a classic elegance about them. Their wedding had the same feel. Nothing was rushed, everything was planned perfectly. Every detail of their wedding was beautiful, and I adore Sherri’s off-the-shoulder dress. They had a beautiful fall day for their wedding, and we had lots of time for photos. And do they ever know how to throw a good party! Ken is a doctor, and Sherri is a nurse, and they have a close group of friends and colleagues that partied the night away with them at the reception. It was a perfect day from start to finish. Congratulations Sherri & Ken!

We had some pretty amazing light at the golf course for a few minutes so of course we had to take photos of each other…

As I sit snuggled in my office on this rainy Friday afternoon I’m reminiscing about beautiful warm summer days and all the weddings we’ve been able to photograph this year. As our season draws to a close I feel truly grateful to have my dream job and for all of the families and couples that we have worked with.

Here is what Michael had to say about Keegan & Curtis’ wedding:

Keegan and Curtis’ wedding was a beautiful affair on the cusp of fall. The ceremony was held in the Old Timer’s Cabin and afterwards we went right out behind to get some pictures in the ravine.

They are friends with the owners of El Cortez. After we finished a shot of coconut tequila (which is delicious by the way), we used the space to take some seriously cool portraits. Their reception and dance were held at the Mirage Banquet Hall.

I take joy out of many things in life, a big one being travel, and another big one being the opportunity to shoot somewhere other than my own back yard.  Canmore is one of my favourite places in the world, somewhere that I can relax and recharge. The air smells different, and the hours can melt away. I have wonderful memories with some of my favourite people there. If the real estate market weren’t so crazy down there, I’m pretty sure I’d have another home away from home!

Our calendars aligned for me to shoot Sarah & Matt’s engagement photos in Canmore and I was waiting for it all summer.  With dalmatian Kooper along for the trip, we went on a little adventure to find a secluded waterfall, and enjoyed some unseasonably warm weather (it’s really good all the snow had melted in time!).  These two love Kooper a ridiculous amount, and he’s one of the best behaved dogs I’ve ever worked with.

Now, Sarah told me that she wants me to blog every single photo from their session because she loves them all, but I don’t want to make all my other couples jealous, so here’s a taste of our lovely afternoon together.
