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 wedding of Heidi and Greg took me back to my hometown of Bashaw, AB! Being part of Heidi’s wedding day was beyond exciting for me as Heidi happens to be amoung the first people I met when I was born! We spent hours upon hours of our toddler life hanging out together and the opportunity to photograph such a magical day in Heidi’s life was spectacular.
The details of their day were fantastic and so well put together – including Heidi’s dress – which she made herself using her mom’s wedding dress! Can you say talented?! And then their was their amazing bridal party! They were a blast to hang out with (they made me feel like part of the family) and an absolute riot on the dance floor! ❤
This was my last wedding of the 2015 season and as I post this blog I am grinning from ear to ear thinking about what an amazing year of beautiful couples and great opportunities I was given. Thank you so much to each an every couple who had me capture these special moments for you.

Chelsey and Jeff got married on a weekend that was filled with sun, clouds, and some rain. We were lucky enough that the rain stayed away until after the outdoor ceremony and still have some time for family and bridal party photos. We were also quite lucky to have some amazing hospitality for a photo session at the 1979 Taphouse and Grill.

Seeing my friend Brody find the love of his life AND getting to share in their day by being their photographer was quite exciting. This group was so much fun to hang out with (even when we accidentally stood in a ant hill or two! haha)
Congratulations Caitlin and Brody! Your day was so beautiful!
