Alex and Homer's engagement photos

“Edmonton
This cold weather means less photo shoots, but more time catching up on this blogging thaaaang! So much good stuff coming up - stay tuned!

Alex and Homer's wedding was a highlight of my busy summer, they had the prettiest emotional and sincere ceremony, and they're currently on a honeymoon in Thailand (so jealous! Also, good timing escaping the deep freeze, guys!)

I plan to share the wedding photos soon, but in the meantime here's a few favorites from their engagement session!

Krista and Randor's day after session in Maui

“go

The day after Randor and Krista's wedding, we explored a little and found the perfect stretch of beach for some more quick photos in paradise. 

I was so excited to get in the water, whip out my Go Pro and generally embarrass myself by getting knocked down by waves. 

I'd like to send a shout out to the other wedding photographer who showed up there and called me crazy for getting in the water. Really? Uh, isn't that what you do on a beach?  It was basically the funnest thing ever, so I'm not all that worried about looking silly.

(Can I just add that looking at these photos and then looking out the window at the snow kinda hurts my heart?? sigh!!!)

Krista + Randor in Maui

“maui

In May, I travelled to Hawaii with Krista and Randor for one of the most sincere and heartfelt weddings ever. These 2 exchanged vows on the beach in the hot Maui sun, and it was an emotional and unforgettable event. The whole day was like something from a movie! I'm grateful and extra happy that I got to be there and experience the love these two have for each other and their friends. All that and a killer party too - we got super sweaty up on that dance floor!!

Just so y'all know, (like there'd be any question!!) I'm down for a destination wedding in Hawaii any day! TAAAAKE MEEE WIIIITH YOOOOU!

Eva, Alice, and their mom and dad!

“family

Eva and Alice are two of the sweetest and most adorable kids ever - their mom and dad are pretty awesome too! 


The Parrotts were one of several families that supported a fundraiser to help sponsor a refugee family from Syria. That Syrian family now lives here in Edmonton and they're happy, healthy, and thriving in their new home - I met them for a meal a few months ago, got spoiled with some amazing cooking and great hugs, and I'm so thrilled they're here. They are so excited to be new Canadians. 

Thanks to the Parrott family and the other great families who came to one of my fundraiser photo sessions. With your help, we donated over $4500 to a family in need!

We all have an incredible degree of freedom and privilege by virtue of living where we do - hundreds of thousands of displaced peoples in Europe aren't so lucky. Just knowing there are so many Edmontonians who want to give and help those in less fortunate circumstances warms my heart!
