Greg & Tarah’s Beautiful Lake Louise Wedding

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Without further ado…

Last month, Greg and Tarah had a fairy tale wedding in the mountains at Lake Louise. They spent their entire weekend at the Fairmont Chateau, which was an absolutely beautiful, romantic, and perfect venue to get married.

I brought Jan along for the weekend, and on our drive up I was quite worried about the weather… the temperature that morning hit -50C (with wind chill)!!! It had warmed up a bit (-20C) by the time we arrived in Lake Louise in the afternoon, but as we scouted out our locations for the next day, our hands kept freezing up every ten minutes. We were SO lucky the next day because it warmed up so much! I would have been so heartbroken if we couldn’t spend much time out in the snow for photos.

Tarah and Greg perfected every detail of their wedding (and even took part in the reception decor and designing the cake!). Everywhere we went, little girls stared in awe, commenting to their moms that they just saw a snow princess. We had tourists following us all day, snapping photos of the couple. Obviously they were more beautiful than the scenery :) They oozed with love, they were gorgeous, and we had more backgrounds than we knew what to do with.

Everything was perfect all day, and I’ve never had so much trouble narrowing down photos as I have this time. I have to warn you now, this post is more photo heavy than any I’ve done before, so you might not want to look at it from your iPhone ;) (more…)

Deb & Zack

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Though I hadn’t known Deb and Zack for very long (their photographer fell ill, and I met them only the day before their wedding!), I took them immediately and loved working with them. Like most couples, they warned me that they are not good at having their photo taken, and as usual I didn’t believe (and was right!). Deb has such a radiating smile and it was so easy to make her face just light up, and Zack picked up my posing cues almost immediately and started posing himself like a model ;) So easy!

They had an intimate ceremony at the Sandman Hotel, and came back down the aisle to “Sandstorm” (I contained myself and took photos instead of dancing).

Afterwards we used Lethbridge Centre for photos and came across another bridal party having their portraits done there. Our girls joked they should have a West Side Story gang battle – the purples versus the black/reds – but sadly no one broke out in dance… :)

Deb and Zack, thank you for having me at your wedding!

Dawn & Gregg’s Wedding

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

I’ve known Dawn and Gregg for several years now, so it was such an honor to be asked to photograph their wedding. Gregg had wanted a big traditional wedding while Dawn had wanted to elope, so they compromised with a quaint winter wedding instead! I had a great day with them and couldn’t have asked for a better shoot :)
