Calgary Chinatown Spring Wedding [Sam & Brittany]

Brittany and Sam, Calgary Chinatown Spring Wedding

I really looked forward to seeing how Brittany and Sam would combine their cultural backgrounds for their Calgary Chinatown spring wedding. The beautiful event did not disappoint! They held their ceremony at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre downtown under the gorgeous domed ceiling.

The area along the river had no shortage of beautiful spots so we didn’t have to go very far for photos as we made our way to their reception at the Regency Palace Restaurant. They could not have asked for a nicer day, especially with all the blossoms still being out.

Brittany and Sam had such a romantic and timeless look to their wedding day style. Sam rocked his James Bond style tux and Brittany was stunning in her floral detail wedding gown (the first of three dresses she wore that day!). Their personalities are so in sync with each other and I loved watching how romantic they are together.

Congratulations, Brittany and Sam!

Elegant Calgary Catholic Wedding [Evan & Emily]

Evan & Emily, elegant Calgary Catholic wedding photos

It’s impossible to talk about Evan and Emily’s wedding without first addressing all the crazy little things that went wrong that day. Between rain, incorrect church readings, and car accidents (to only name a few), each new thing that came up had us shaking our heads and feeling piling sympathy for this sweet couple. However, what mattered in the end was that the overall love and happiness of the day overpowered the trivial things and they still had such a beautiful, elegant Calgary Catholic wedding.

Every time Emily looked at Evan, you could see her stress melt away as she shot him her beaming smile. I quickly learned that asking them to look serious in any photos was a challenge ;) They are so supportive of each other and true equals in their relationship.

We already knew the kindness and warmth of Evan’s family from when we photographed his sister’s wedding several years ago, but Emily’s family easily matched that hospitality! (Though the long running joke through the reception is that Evan’s family wins in the quantity of happy tears they cry.)

Congratulations, Evan and Emily!

Stanley Park Family Photos [Linda]

Stanley Park family photos

I met Linda waaaaay back in university and when we recently reconnected, we discussed how fun it would be to get together to update her family photos. Since her mom lives in Calgary, the timing worked out perfectly when I was passing through to make a stop in Stanley Park for their family session with her son Teagan, her mom, and Teagan’s dad.

Teagan was promised only a few serious photos and then he was able to let loose! I was pleased to find the whole family is goofy like this and made the BEST silly faces for photos (I think everyone learned from Grandma, the master of silly faces!).

Azuridge Estate Wedding Photography [Austin & Cyndy]

Cyndy & Austin, Azuridge Estate wedding photography, Calgary wedding photos

Last weekend Cam and I headed to the foothills for Austin and Cyndy’s wedding at Azuridge Estate Hotel in Priddis, just west of Calgary. This was our first time doing Azuridge Estate wedding photography and we were blown away by what an amazing location they chose for their special day. Surrounded by gorgeous views of the mountains, tall trees, floor to ceiling windows, and even a dinosaur, Azuridge was a beautiful venue.

Austin and Cyndy have been together for seven years and their wedding felt like a celebration of their relationship and families. Many family members traveled from overseas to join them, filling the event with so much happiness and excitement. It is such an honor to have photographed them so early in their relationship and again for such an important day!

The two of them are still so much in love and look at each other just like any other newlyweds would :)

Congratulations, Austin and Cyndy!

Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

Calgary Lougheed House Winter Wedding [Edina & Eric]

Eric & Edina, Calgary Lougheed House wedding

Eric and Edina’s Calgary winter wedding was the perfect start to the 2014 season! They held both their ceremony and reception at Calgary’s historic Lougheed House with their closest family and friends. It was a beautiful intimate event filled with so much laughter, love, and joy.

Eric’s daughter Svea was a very important part of the day and had a special part just for her in the ceremony. She even got to wear a dress in her favorite color, pink! However, she was quite disappointed the limo wasn’t also pink, which would have been fitting for how much Edina looked like a Barbie in her mermaid-style wedding dress.

We had such a great time with them all day and felt so welcomed by their families.

Congratulations, Eric & Edina!
