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

Lindsay & Al’s Wedding

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Wondering how “Like a Prayer” can find its way into a wedding slideshow? Be sure to click on Read More and check out the full entry here :)

I’m starting to see why wedding photographers stop posting blogs during wedding season, but I vowed to keep up with these! As long as I make it before the next weekend I am happy :) The problem this week is that Al and Lindsay were so cute AND had me booked for longer, so I had so many great shots to sort through! Their fun attitude lent itself well to a lot of great photos.

Lindsay and Al chose to see each other before everyone else was around and do the photos as the first part of the day, allowing them to be totally ready to party once the ceremony was done and the tables rolled out. I love being there to capture when the couple sees each other for the first time all done up; there is always such a look of awe and appreciation they give each other.

I loved being a part of their day. The bridal party was a riot (I had to be told a few times not to encourage certain members by laughing at their crude jokes!) and we had a beautiful sunny day to work with. Late last year I shot his brother Tyler’s wedding (who was in the bridal party this time around), and it makes it so much easier (and fun!) when you already know a chunk of the family; at the very least, it saves me from calling a few extra people “hey you!” throughout the day ;)

A big thank you again to Michael for assisting! He had lights out and ready to go when I needed them!

Candace and Shane

Monday, May 18th, 2009

This Saturday I shot the wedding of the oh-so-gorgeous Candace and Shane, once again with Michael in tow as my backup shooter. I have to admit, it was a bit of a challenge shooting this as I’m still recovering from pneumonia! Luckily my lungs cooperated, it was a gorgeous day, and Candace and Shane were SO easy to work with. They are such a laid back couple and they looked absolutely stunning. The details they put into their wedding were so beautiful (especially Candace’s fitted dress) and I was so impressed that they put this whole thing together in only a couple months!

We started the day with an intimate ceremony at the Lethbridge Lodge, then journeyed out into the wind for photos, but by Lethbridge standards it was only a “breezy” day, so luckily no one blew into the coulee ;)

Bethany

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Last weekend Bethany was in town for Easter, so we went out on Saturday afternoon (you know, when the weather was still nice… what’s up with the weather this week??) and did a fun fashiony photo session. You see, this was only fair after her sisters Erin and Krista got the supermodel treatment in Las Vegas, but Bethany hadn’t been on that trip, so we had to settle for the slightly less glamorous Lethbridge! Bethany is a hottie like her sisters so she was pretty easy to photograph :)

Special thanks go out to her mom, Verna, for being the bubble assistant!

Cyndy & Austin

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

I met Cyndy this February when she wanted to get some Valentine’s photos done for her boyfriend Austin, and today I finally got to meet Austin now that he is in town for a bit! I had a great time with these two; they are so cute together! Cyndy described herself as being shy, but around him she is constantly glowing and grinning. He’s the same; he said he’s normally serious in photos, but couldn’t hold back the smiles around her. I love seeing people so much in love!

Tanya – but not me!

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Today I had the pleasure of doing a photo session with a woman out of Edmonton who has a fantastic name: Tanya! Once you get over the awkward “Hi Tanya, this is Tanya” on the phone, you stop noticing :)

Tanya (her, not me) wanted to show that she’s a hot mama (and boy is she ever!) so she braved the chilly wind in her sexy blue dress. Luckily the sun popped out a few times, and we could keep her coat nearby when needed. Summer is soooo close, but needs to hurry up a bit more!

She has such an amazing, huge, sparkling white smile and is full of positive energy, so I had to snap quickly to get the more serious shots… but I definitely prefer the smiling ones :)
