The minute I first met Caley and Robert, I was like "uh, instant pals, pls and thx?!" These two are just insanely cute and hilarious, and I could tell right away that they're going to be monumentally happy together. I hung out with these 2 serious hotties in Canmore for engagement photos when there was still snow on the ground, which is a nice memory to hold onto today when it's like 34 celsius or whatever it is (I'm hiding in front of an AC). Anyhow, I'm very excited and honoured that I get to be at their wedding in October in Edmonton. In the meantime, here's some faves from their mountain engagement session!
Swathi and Neil's wedding is summed up perfectly by their awesome wedding hashtag #banglesandbanjos - theirs is the story of a small town Saskatchewan boy falling in love with a gorgeous Hindu girl, and having the best wedding ever. (Who would have thought cowboy boots go so well with dressy Indian clothes?) My favorite part of this wedding was seeing how overjoyed both Swathi and Neil's families were about this union - every face was smiling and laughing all day long. I loved watching Neil's family enjoy and embrace the traditional Hindu wedding blessing and ceremony, and it reminded me of the first time I experienced all of those beautiful traditions myself.
These two cuties are made for each other, and it shows. Thanks Swathi and Neil for having so much fun on your big day(s) and bringing me along for the ride - I was finding bits of rice in my shoes and camera bag for weeks after! haha!
Robyn and Shaun's wedding at McDougall United, followed by their awesome reception at Shaw Conference Center was one of the highlights of 2017! They're basically the cutest couple ever, and their dog Douglas was a good boy in his little bow tie - anytime there's pets at weddings, I'm one happy photographer! One of my fave parts of the big day was their first look (with Douglas of course!) at the park in Richie near their house where they walk Douglas almost every day together. But there's lots of other faves - Robyn built the BEST photobooth full moon for guests to pose with, the outdoor patio reception was gorgeous - their first dance in the patio lights really went with that full moon gorgeousness theme. SO many personal handmade details and really sweet moments with family and loved ones - total dream wedding! Congrats, Douglas, on the marriage of your rad parents!
One of the coolest and most fun engagement sessions/adventures ever - with a planes, trains, and automobiles theme! This was all Karen and Ben's idea, and what an amazing idea it was! Not to be cheesy (well, maybe a little cheesy!), but the way these two make each other smile is the best part of all. Their wedding was beautiful too, can't wait to share it with you!
The hottest day of the summer, which is fitting because it was the wedding day of the hottest babes around! So much fun - and OMG that dress! OW! (as an aside - this was the first wedding I shot at the Foundry Room and it's such an awesome Edmonton wedding venue, I love it!) One memory that stands out is that Andrea made homemade boozy popsicles for cocktail hour and they were THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER TASTED. Maybe. Probably. Definitely.
