K+F's wedding was beyond beautiful, and these 2 are really the sweetest together, the way they light up when they look at each other speaks volumes. My favorite part of their wedding day was the speeches - it's so cool to hear such moving heartfelt speeches and learn all the dimensions of people who are already this interesting. Plus, I love photographing weddings at the Enjoy Center - I'm so happy we have this gorgeous light-filled space as an Edmonton wedding venue option.

Stephany and Michael's wedding day at Enjoy Center happened to be the day of the first snowfall of the year, and ooo boy did it ever come down! But that didn't stop us from having fun for a single second! I really love the crisp clean new snow, and fortunately so do these two cuties! Their engagement session in Tofino was so beachy and summery, and I thought it was pretty cool to have the exact opposite a few months later on their wedding day!
This wedding day was chock full of big smiles and little tears, and a whole bunch of color, fun, and laughter. I really love to photograph tea ceremonies, and appreciate the opportunity to experience such big, joyful extended families coming together in such an important way. Plus, the games the groomsmen play are straight up hilarious and insanely fun to photograph! These two are super special, and I wish them all the happiness in the world together!
I've known Angela since she was a teenager because I LOVE her family's amazing vegan restaurant in Edmonton, Padmanadi. Every single thing on the menu is delicious (a blend of Indonesian, Chinese, Thai, and Indian veggie cuisine, please go there if you've never been) But more importantly, Angela's family is amazing - the most friendly, big hearted, loving people you will ever meet. I've spent hours chatting with Angela's father Kasim about everything under the sun, they treat all the people who have dined at their restaurant as family.
Wandy met Angela when he began working at the restaurant years ago, and their love blossomed over time, much like the lotus that grace their beautiful restaurant. If you've eaten at Padmanadi, you've been a witness to this special relationship. I was SO thrilled when they were engaged and beyond honored to photograph their wedding. It was also my first traditional Buddhist temple ceremony. I had a hard time making this post a reasonable length because this day was so emotional and special, but here are some of my very favorites !
