When Jordan Met Lindsay – Drumheller Wedding Photography

A few months back when I received an e-mail from Jordan asking about my availability for his wedding date… I was over the top excited for him and his beautiful girl Lindsay! Three years ago I had the pleasure of capturing Jordan’s brother’s wedding as one of the first weddings I shot after graduating from the Design & Photography program at Grant MacEwan. At that time I wasn’t 100% sure if wedding photography was where I was going to direct my passion – but after that wedding I knew wedding portraiture was calling my name.

Fast forward three years and a few dozen weddings in between, it was a pretty exciting to work with this family again.

As we drove from the ceremony location to our formals location near Drumheller we made a couple quick stops at cute places we saw along the way. This adorable little church couldn’t have been a more perfect match with their colour scheme.

Once we arrived at the lookout point… it was magic. This day was the definition of perfect in my books.

Thank you Lindsay and Jordan for having me!

The E Family – Wainwright Family Portraits

I met up with the Elder family on a very busy Sunday of family sessions. I started out the day with this crew and there were so many giggles and laughes that I knew I was going to have a fun filled day of photos.

The K Family – Wainwright Family Portraits

It has been a very busy fall with lots of great families having me join them for sessions. The K family and I got together a few weeks ago to update their portraits – and the little ones totally hammed it up for the camera. These two girls were not shy for a single moment.

Miss Kelsey & Miss Alana – Wainwright Dance Portraits

Miss Kelsey and I have been friends for as long as I can remember – since 1995 to be exact. So to say that I wasn’t excited to meet up for some funky dance inspired photos of her and her dance pal Alana, would be a lie.

We started the session later in the evening than most sessions so we had some fun with the evening light.

Thanks for having me do these photos Kels!

And… Come home more often! ❤

Trista & Sheldon – Wainwright Engagement Portraits

In just three more days I will be spending a wonderful day with this couple and their families!

After a full season of weddings it is a strange feeling to be coming up on the last wedding of my 2014 season – and I couldn’t ask for a more fun couple to spend this last weekend with!
