I (Haley) started my 2014 wedding season with a beautiful intimate wedding at the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Edmonton.  It’s always inspiring to shoot in a new location, and this beautiful old church gave me a lot of warm nooks and crannies to work with. I hadn’t met Jenny & Jordan prior to the wedding, but we had such a great time and I wish them all the best in their new life together!  I also welcomed a new second shooter (Kelsey) to our team and I’m excited to have her on board with us this year.

Usually Michael does most of our retouching, but all of the photos in this post were edited by me – I’ve been cultivating a fascination with Photoshop recently and picking up a few new tricks!

Calli & Tyler had beautiful weather for their winter wedding!  Their wedding was elegant and meaningful – Calli’s brother performed the ceremony and her other two brothers each spoke.  Tyler’s dad introduced the two of them at Joanne & Jon’s wedding years ago that I (Haley) photographed, so it was really cool to see them walk down the aisle this time!  Calli is a nurse and Tyler is a lawyer so they are both very busy but they did a great job planning their wedding with the help of Jenna from Cocktails and Details.  Tyler was going to surprise Calli with the location of their honeymoon and I can’t wait to hear where they went! Thanks to second shooter Sam for shooting this one with Michael.

When Alex told me about her New Year’s Eve wedding (on her fiance’s family farm near Trochu) I told her I was in, as long as it wasn’t an outdoor ceremony.  <pause> Then she told me it was an outdoor ceremony.  I’m not going to lie, I was a little terrified I’d end up frozen in a snowbank, or that our cameras would freeze and stop working. But, it was actually fantastic, and the wintry ceremony was picturesque.  Alex, Devin and their whole bridal party were amazing and didn’t complain one bit about the cold.

Alex and I first met in Vegas, and we’ve had some amazing times together since then.  She can go from country to city with the change of an outfit, and loves celebrities as much as her farm animals. Devin is hard working, and will do anything for anyone. Both sweet, and a perfect match.  I loved visiting their farm last summer for their engagement photos, and it was really cool to see it transformed in the winter.

As Alex’s dad said in his speech “Alex has been running dogs since she was knee high to a husky” so it was only fitting that she made her grand entrance on dogsled.

Happy New Year everyone!!  We can’t wait to share more fabulous weddings with you in 2014!

 

I’ve been sitting here for a few minutes trying to figure out what to write.  It’s hard to express just how special this wedding was for us, and how wonderful Julia & Richard are. I first met Julia at a class for new wedding planners, and after going to a preview of ‘Bridesmaids’ together we became fast friends.  Julia is one of the most positive and compassionate people I’ve ever met. And she and Richard are such a warm and loving couple.  I was thrilled when Richard asked me to help him propose to Julia last year (he’s quiet, but incredibly romantic), and it’s been such a fun experience to help Julia plan her wedding (with the hashtag #juliasweddingfeaturingrichard) and finally to see them tie the knot at the end of October.  Big shout out to all the groomsmen who were SUPER fun to hang out with!

I could go on and on, but I’ll let the photos do the talking!  The girls all got ready at my house, and I’ll admit it was kind of strange after the wedding to cull through images from my own house (and my own face!).  Michael did a fantastic job on these photos, especially with the added pressure of Julia being a wedding planner (Once Upon Your Day), and his A-type wife being a bridesmaid.

Alex (on the left – one of Julia’s maids of honour) is next up to get married! We will be braving the cold on New Year’s Eve out on a farm for Alex & Devin’s wedding.

We can’t forget Charlie, who even got his own boutonniere! He was a big part of the proposal so he had to be there for some of the wedding photos.

WOW.  I got to watch Janine from faBLOOMosity create Julia’s bouquet and it was a fantastic experience. She is so creative, and there are so many unique and interesting flowers and plants in this bouquet. Stunning.

I had to get in on the action a little bit.  When I showed this photo to a friend, the response was “Haha you would”.  Of course I did. I couldn’t help myself. (iphone photo by Michael)

Tricia loves photos and loved working with Michael so much for her wedding that she wanted to have another shoot in her dress!  Derek is an awesome husband and obliged for another photo shoot.  I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of these two in the future!

Of all the weddings to end my 2013 season, Lindsey & J.Lee’s was perfect.  The two of them are very laid back, Lindsey looked amazing in her dress, I got to photograph in some fabulous locations (including the beautiful St. Joachim Church) and J.Lee tried to get me drunk all day.  Super fun!  My second shooter Bruce and I had a great time working with the team from Get Wed who took care of day-of coordination!   The bridal party kept us in stitches all day, and the weather was perfect.  I couldn’t have asked for anything better.  Congrats Lindsey & J.Lee!!

Where do I even start with Adrienne & Kevin?  One word keeps coming to mind: adorable.  These two are THOSE people.  That couple who is so utterly in love that they just smile constantly when they’re together, and you expect birds to chirp and rainbows to appear.  They’re just so darn cute together.

They met through a friend who invited Adrienne to go wakeboarding. She wasn’t sure she wanted to go, but I bet she’s glad she did!  Kevin told her on their third date that they would spend the rest of their lives together.

He proposed in the winter time, with a custom sign made out of Christmas lights on Candy Cane Lane.  At first Adrienne thought it was for someone else, but enthusiastically said yes once she figured out it was for her.

Their wedding was on a perfect fall day. Not too cold, beautiful leaves, and these two lovebirds.

Big thanks to my second shooter Sam for helping make the day so fun, several of the shots in this post are his.

Adrienne buys cologne for Kevin, but he had never bought her perfume. For his wedding present to her, he found one that he liked, and he certainly did well.  You can’t go wrong with Dior!
