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!

Jonathan & Jamie | Calgary Wedding Photography

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

What a fantastic first wedding of the season! Jamie and Jonathan were married at the beautiful Christ Church near downtown Calgary. We had a few challenges as the wedding fell exactly one week after the horrible flood in the city. A few of our planned locations got washed out (and we just made it to a playground before it got demolished!) but we all adjusted, figured out new routes, and the wedding went wonderfully!

I first met Jamie through work at the U of L and it was so great to see her find love in Jonathan. They just looked so unbelievably happy together all day long, and especially by the reception it was difficult to tear them apart.

Congratulations, Jamie and Jonathan! (more…)

The Rice Family in Calgary… times 2!

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

This last weekend I was reunited with two of the Rice boys and their families. I did both of their weddings, and now they have brand new little blue eyed boys to add to the family! We did the photos in Prince’s Island Park in downtown Calgary, and were able to easily get around all the Calgary Folk Festival attendees. I put Cassandra behind the camera this time as my assistant to generally jump around, wave her arms, shout crazy songs, and dance like a monkey for the babies. As you will see, Cassandra makes a very amusing monkey, at least according to these boys. I’m not sure I have ever seen such smiley babies. There weren’t even any meltdowns!

WARNING: Lots of blue eyes ahead!! (more…)
