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.
These two magical people planned the legit cutest wedding ever on a Wednesday afternoon with just family in Jasper National Park at Tekarra Lodge. If you haven't been to this darling place, the little cottages are so cozy and pretty, it's tucked away a few minutes from Jasper on the old Icefields highway - watch for the totem pole!
I knew the second Kirsten emailed me that we were going to be friends, and I wasn't wrong. I'm so happy I met all these rad folks and experienced the abundance of love they have for the people around them.
I'm just so into little mountain elopements and small weddings, they remind me of my own wedding and how special it was - if you're planning a tiny mountain wedding or elopement, please write and tell me about it, because I LOVE them so much! I am licensed to work in Jasper and Banff National Parks, and I offer special elopement rates!
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!
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!)
