Taryn and Jon’s wedding (working with Warf)

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Last summer I second shot for Michael Warf a few times, and I’ve finally had a chance to go through what I captured and pick out some favorite frames!

The last wedding was Taryn and Jon, who had their ceremony in the Kinsman Park in a beautiful tent to keep all their guests cool. They also incorporated their little dog, and he even had a doggie tux! Their wedding party had a really personal touch by including Taryn’s mom and Jon’s dad in the members so they could enjoy the entire day with them. It wasn’t very difficult to make these two look good :) (more…)

Ross and Erin, a Lethbridge Wedding

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Many many years ago I met “Pleasant” Ross through our mutual friends in the university’s music department, and when I met Erin I was thrilled to find out she perfectly matched him in charm (she is officially “Pleasant Erin” now). The two were married at the Galt, which is always one of my favorite places in Lethbridge, and had their wonderful, silly friends standing up along with them. All the tears Erin and Ross fought back during the ceremony had me emotional too, and it’s always much stronger when I know the people!

I had so much fun with them all day, and their bridal party never failed to keep me entertained (I was delighted the week after when, second shooting for Michael, one of the same groomsmen showed up in that bridal party!)

The reception was a fantastic party where everyone was full of energy and had so much fun (the candy bar may be to blame for some of that). Normally I don’t post a ton of reception photos, but in this case I couldn’t resist :)

Thank you to Jan for helping out again! (more…)

Mike & LeeAnna, Lethbridge Wedding

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Mike and LeeAnna had a beautiful wedding at the beginning of July; we had a gorgeous day to work with and these two were radiating so much love that you couldn’t help but be totally happy around them! When I first met them I loved how cute they were and thought they had two of the most likeable personalities I’ve ever come across.

LeeAnna and Mike chose to see each other before the ceremony, which is always my favorite thing to do to get the most genuine emotions. They were so lost in each other when they first walked up and made contact that I felt bad to interupt them when it was time for posing!

When their bridal party showed up, we took everyone out to play, and Jan Tajcnar helped me out for the day for her usual sneaky paparazzi photos. (more…)

Julie & Chad

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

I always say how much I love working with people multiple times, and Julie and Chad are no exception. The last time I saw them was when Eric and Chad’s sister Ashley got married, and this time around the couples switched roles. The weather was considerably better than the last time so we were able to spend quite a bit more time playing outside. I had so much fun with all of them, and I loved how open everyone was to anything.

Julie and Chad are so sweet together and made my job totally easy :)

I get one more round with Julie soon when her friend Chelsey (the slightly taller bridesmaid here) gets married, and I’m so excited to work with those girls again.

Oh, and there are a LOT of photos after the cut! The further along this summer goes, the harder a time I am having narrow the photos down for blogs!

Stephanie & Doug

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

A few years ago I photographed Cassie’s wedding, which I believe was my third I ever did on my own, and I met two great people: Cassie’s brother Brad who I became great friends with, and Cassie’s best friend Stephanie. Well, Stephanie and her man Doug finally decided to tie the knot themselves, and I was so happy to be a part of their wedding as well! They put together a small but beautiful and well thought out Japanese-themed wedding, and had their ceremony and reception at the new Lethbridge Buddhist Temple, the very first wedding ever held there! It was such an honor to be a part of that, and the Temple was so beautiful (especially the shrine).

Stephanie and Doug are also huge car enthusiasts, and Stephanie was especially hoping they could borrow a red Corvette for the wedding day. The plans for it fell through so they settled for a white Yukon, but when Doug went to the dealership to pick it up, they happened to have a red Corvette sitting in the lot! He decided to surprise Steph with it, and even as they came out of the Temple and saw it, she still didn’t know it was theirs to use. He even strung her along a little when she saw it, saying he didn’t know who it belonged to, then suggested they steal it ;)

Ashley & Eric

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Last Saturday the rain came pouring down, but Ashley and Eric were good sports and braved it with me for their wedding photos! This adorable young couple stayed positive through the whole day – being in love does that to you! – even though we were all soaked and chilly. Besides, rain is supposed to be good luck, and it made everything so green!

Their ceremony at E-Free was extra special because Eric’s dad performed the service! I was impressed he made it through without tears… he is a strong man :)

I also have to give kudos to their terrific wedding party who froze their butts off while we were taking photos! Eric’s brother was definitely the youngest groomsman I’ve ever photographed, and Ashley’s brother Chad and his fiancee Julie were also included, which is awesome because I’ll be seeing them again in August for their own wedding.

Ashley & Eric and their friends were so easy to work with, and in case I didn’t mention it before, cute cute cute! I’m so excited to work with the family again :D
