Jen and Mark’s wedding

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Last weekend I visited the Crowsnest Pass for a very special wedding. Jen and Mark, high school sweethearts, finally tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in our hometown. I am so proud of Jen and Mark for getting to this point in their lives… Not many high school romances make it this far, and it makes me so happy to see theirs come all this way! I have known everyone in the bridal party since I was in grade 9 (and Maid of Honor, Tricia, since grade 6!) so it was so amazing to spend this important day with them all.

I hadn’t seen a few members of the bridal party since high school, so it was a bit of a shock to see how much everyone had changed! Okay, it hasn’t been that long since high school, but everyone is all grown up now! Except me, I never want to grow up ;) I can also confidently say Tricia doesn’t want to grow up either… so I guess we aren’t all that grown up after all. Furthermore, the reception was like a high school dance; Jen and Tricia were my usual dance escorts back in the day, and it was awesome to experience the old days again. (Remember the Venga Boys? I had entirely blocked that part of my life out until the reception… hehe)

I’ve gotten a little desensitized to wedding emotions after shooting so many, but I still get really emotional when it’s for friends. This was such an amazing day to be a part of, and for that I am very grateful. Jen and Mark, thank you for having me there and trusting me to do your photos :)

Sophia is 2!

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

I can’t believe Sophia is already two! I’ve had the fortune to photograph this little girl since she was only a baby bump. Actually, her maternity photos were done while I still worked at Sears! During that session I found out her mom Laura was from the Crowsnest Pass, where I am originally from, and though we had just missed each other in high school by about a year, we have been in touch ever since. I’ve been able to photograph little Sophia when she was teeny tiny, and last year when she turned one. You may have seen her feet throughout my website ;)

This last weekend while I was in the Pass to photograph some friends getting married (photos of that coming soon!), Laura brought Sophia out to the scenic Leitch Collieries for some photos to celebrate the momentous 2 year occasion. I wish Leitch Collieries was closer to Lethbridge… the best way I can describe the location for photos is EPIC! At least in the CNP, it’s only a five minute drive from my house :)

It took a lot of chasing to get most of these photos, but oh goodness she’s so cute!

A weekend in the Crowsnest Pass

Monday, August 11th, 2008

Last weekend I managed to go back home for a few days, and take some photos I’ve been itching to do for some time! There really aren’t enough free weekends during wedding season to go to the CNP, and then it’s just too cold.

First I started with some light painting, and my mom helped as my assistant :)
