First of all, K&A are my FAVORITE people ever, because they had their cat Tigger send me the following special message asking me to be their wedding photographer.
So right away I knew I was going to reeeeeally like these people, and I was right!
These high school sweethearts are the king and queen of the outdoors. They planned asummer camp wedding in the Rocky Mountains near Canmore, complete with smores, campfires, games, beer and summer camp sports activities - guests were even assigned a bunk in a cabin! Casual and fun, and the best environment for a killer party!
But then, the day before the wedding, it started to rain.
and rain... all night loooooong.
..So the party just moved into the mess hall!
If anything, the party was even more fun, because it's always more fun to dance and celebrate and be silly when a storm is raging outside. Clouds covered the pretty mountains, you couldn't even see them, we were wrapped in a cloud of misty rain that just lessened enough for us to get a few soggy shots outside, and a first look.
YMCA Camp Chief Hector, just outside of Canmore, Alberta, is a great wedding venue, even in the rain - the lodge/mess hall was the perfect setting for an awesome ceremony and hilarious party.
But the real story here is how amazing K+A are together and how much fun they have, rain or shine. Here is their engagement session as well if you wanna further snoop at these two cuties.
Ravneet and Harman and I spent the most magical day in the mountains this spring. A shoulder-season snowfall the evening before sprinkled the mountains with white - it was so insanely beautiful, the moody clouds adding even more atmosphere to the dramatic scene.
These 2 are getting married very soon, and I'm so excited to celebrate with them, they love to laugh together and their big day (or big DAYS as I'll be partying with them for 4 days) will be full of fun and laughter! Congrats, Ravneet and Harman, and thanks for hanging out in Canmore and Banff with me!
I wrote an article about engagement photo sessions that you can read right here, hope it helps you if you're planning a session!
Being fortunate enough to travel to Italy to photograph a wedding in a legit castle, once owned by the infamous Borgias, is like something from a dream.
So is travelling across the magical Italian countryside in a party bus with the funniest, friendliest group imaginable, then staying at a gorgeous countryside villa steeped in history, with an awesome pool. All this is followed by the honor and privilege of witnessing one of the most sincere and love-filled wedding ceremonies you can imagine. Plus, these folks know how to party! I smile every single time I think about this wedding, and this entire Italian trip - it was so beyond fun, I want to do it every year!
If you ever invent a time machine, I highly suggest travelling back in time to hide in the bushes and witness Ash and Jon exchange their vows in the glowing sunshine of Passignano sul Trasimeno, Italy (and I'll come with you!)
