When Melissa met Steve – Wainwright Wedding Photography

September 22, 2018 – Totally not a day that Melissa and Steve expected to wake up to fall coloured leaves covered with that cold white stuff we relate to winter… But they did and it was PERFECT. The colours were beautiful and so incredibly unique! It was certainly chilly – but Melissa and Steve’s wedding party was a group of troopers.

Congratulations!! 2018-10-16_00012018-10-16_00022018-10-16_00032018-10-16_00042018-10-16_00052018-10-16_00062018-10-16_00072018-10-16_00082018-10-16_00092018-10-16_00102018-10-16_00112018-10-16_00122018-10-16_00132018-10-16_00142018-10-16_00152018-10-16_0016

When Chardel met Matt – Lloydminster Wedding Photography

Every wedding I photograph is an honour – but there is always something extra special about being called by family of another wedding I did previously. Two years ago I photographed Chardel’s sister’s wedding and as I photographed Chardel’s I had many memories of the jokes and ideas that were chatted about two years earlier. It was so special being able to witness the love that has grown between Chardel and Matt – and to finally meet Matt!

These two are so sweet. They are a quiet pair – that loves each other so deeply! I could see it in the way they walked together, the way the spoke together, and especially the way to looked at each other with such joy on their wedding day. 2018-08-25_00012018-08-25_00022018-08-25_00032018-08-25_00042018-08-25_00052018-08-25_00062018-08-25_00072018-08-25_00082018-08-25_00092018-08-25_00102018-08-25_00112018-08-25_00122018-08-25_00132018-08-25_00142018-08-25_00152018-08-25_0016

The Newton Family – Wainwright Lifestyle Photography

Paulette and I chatted for a few weeks as this session was coming up on the calendar about ‘dragging her boys out for photos.’ And we had a BLAST. I think the guys had a riot – they certainly had my face hurting with laughter! 2016-12-29_0005.jpg2016-12-29_0002.jpg2016-12-29_0003.jpg2016-12-29_0004.jpg2016-12-29_0006.jpg2016-12-29_0007.jpg2016-12-29_0001.jpgThanks Newton fam-jam!

The Watt Family – Wainwright Lifestyle Photography

It may not look like it was chilly from how tough this crew is – but this day was incredibly chilly, windy and it rained the entire day. We didn’t care though! 2016-12-28_00202016-12-28_00212016-12-28_00222016-12-28_00232016-12-28_0024

I absolutely love it when these girls call me for photos – they are so beautiful inside and out! This session was a special surprise for their dad’s birthday and it worked out quite perfectly.2016-09-17_00342016-09-17_00382016-09-17_00372016-09-17_00362016-09-17_00352016-09-17_00402016-09-17_0039

Kieran – Wainwright Graduation Photography

Catching up with Kieran and his mom for his graduation session back in June was an incredibly special experience. I remember Mr. K from his first years of school and seeing how proud his mom is of him and how excited he was to be finishing up those long years of school was a blast. Keep up all of the amazing work Mr. K! You rock! 2016-12-28_00162016-12-28_00152016-12-28_00172016-12-28_00182016-12-28_00192016-12-28_0014

Ryder & Jackson – THREE Years!

I can hardly believe how quickly the past three years have gone! Three years ago we welcomed Jackson and Ryder into the world – and I moved back to Wainwright! And now we are wishing these little men a very happy third birthday – and I am moving into my first house! Needless to say I have been furiously packing up boxes all day, however I felt a short break to blog the boys’ weekend long, stampede themed, birthday session was necessary! They had an absolute blast at the midway, the chucks and the parade!

Happy birthday to my favourite little men! It’s such a pleasure watching you grow up!2016-06-27_00012016-06-27_00022016-06-27_00032016-06-27_00042016-06-27_00062016-06-27_00072016-06-27_00082016-06-27_00092016-06-27_00102016-06-27_0011TeeTee is so proud! <3<3

When Ben met Nicole – Wainwright Wedding Photography


Nicole and Ben’s backyard wedding this past weekend made my heart so happy. This little family is so full of happiness, love and thankfulness for each other and they are all so welcoming! The entire day was completely relaxed and it was a pleasure to take part and watch the love for Nicole, Ben, Naomi and Malcolm pour out of each guest watching their intimate ceremony. ❤2016-06-22_00022016-06-22_00032016-06-22_00042016-06-22_00052016-06-22_00062016-06-22_00072016-06-22_00082016-06-22_00092016-06-22_00102016-06-22_00112016-06-22_00122016-06-22_00132016-06-22_00142016-06-22_00152016-06-22_00162016-06-22_00172016-06-22_00182016-06-22_00192016-06-22_0020Thanks for stopping by!

Mitchell – Wainwright Graduation Photography

Mitchell graduated from the High School this June and we celebrated with an early family session around town. I don’t believe Mitchell was too pleased with me when I told the fam-jam to give him a big bear hug – but he put up with it none-the-less 😉
