Cecilia and Brandon – Wainwright Maternity Photography

Cece and Brandon won a session from the Sparkle and Spurs Bridal show earlier this year! It worked out perfectly as a combined maternity and engagement session!

Shari and Bobby – Wainwright Engagement Photography

My beautiful friend Shari and I don’t get to see each other very often but when we do it’s always so wonderful. This past weekend I even got to sneak in an engagement session with her and her wonderful fiancé! It was a rainy and snowy day – and it was actually quite perfect!

Andrea and Danny – Wainwright Engagement Photography

One of the most exciting moments for me as a photographer is helping create ‘firsts.’ In this e-session I not only got to hang out with Andrea and Danny – but I also got to take their first ‘real’ family portrait! Isn’t Mr. Hunter handsome?!

2015 – Year in Review

2015 was a spectacular year with lots of beautiful weddings, adorable newborns, fun families and couples, brilliant graduates and everything in between. Thank you so much to all of my wonderful clients – you’ve made my dreams as a photographer come true! Thank you also to my amazing family for supporting me and believing that I could get it all done! It was a year for the record book!

I’m so excited for what 2016 will bring! I think it is going to be another busy busy year with wedding season already over half booked up with so many amazing couples!

Here’s a look-in at each of the milestones I had the opportunity to photograph this year!

The LaVallee Family – Wainwright Family Photography

It had been a few years since I did any sessions out at the trestle and I have completely fallen in love with how beautiful it is out there all over again. Hanging out with the LaVallee crew on a Sunday evening was the perfect way to finish of a weekend – and the kids were SO cute!

Caitlyn & Daryl – Wainwright Engagement Photography

Caitlyn and Daryl are getting married this weekend! The year has flown by since their engagement session last September and it is hard to believe that this day is already here! 2015-09-16_0001 2015-09-16_0002 2015-09-16_0003 2015-09-16_0004 2015-09-16_0005 2015-09-16_0006 2015-09-16_0007

Sorrell & Marshall – Wainwright Engagement Portraits

I have known Marshall for nearly my entire life. We met way back in 1995 when my family moved to Wainwright! I’m so excited to see that he has found the love of his life and I was more than pleased to be there for the moment that she said ‘Yes!’ to his proposal.

I’m so excited to photograph your wedding in Lloydminster next summer! It’s going to be a wonderful day. 🙂2015-07-06_0001 2015-07-06_0002 2015-07-06_0003 2015-07-06_0004 2015-07-06_0005 2015-07-06_0006 2015-07-06_0007 2015-07-06_0008Cheers!

Rozie & Andrew – Chicago Engagement Photos

This lovely couple is getting married on Saturday! I couldn’t be more excited to head down to Chicago this weekend to see my family and watch these two tie the knot! I’m sure there are many fun times ahead.

It’s been quite some time since I did this ‘Beloved Session’ with my cousin Andrew & (soon-to-be cousin) Rozie but I can’t think of a better time to share more of their photos than a couple days before their wedding day! I can’t wait to see you two!!!

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!
