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!!!

When Quinn Met Rachelle – Wainwright Wedding Photography

Quinn and Rachelle became Mr. & Mrs. on October 4 and had a bridal party full of smiles and laughter – and a very large wedding party at that! My dad and I had a blast hanging out with this group during their formal photos.

I started the day out with Rachelle and all of her beautiful ladies at Divine Hair Salon to get ready for the ceremony at the Catholic Church.

Then we ventured over to my newest favorite location in town for family and bridal party photos. All of the photos went smoothly and quite quickly so the bridal party even had a chance to enjoy a quick stop at the Taphouse before heading over to the reception!

Thank-you for having me be part of your day Mr. & Mrs McBride!!

When Caine Met Ashton – Vermilion Wedding Photography

Caine and Ashton said their vows on a beautiful Saturday evening in September. The full week before their wedding we not only saw an abundant amount of rain – but also an unheard of amount of snow for September. Even the day before the wedding things were still soaking wet and we zipped through their rehearsal in the rain. Luckily everything dried up quickly overnight and it was a perfect day for a wedding.

2014-12-02_0002.jpg

I met up with Ashton and her girls for getting ready photos Saturday morning and then we all got together before the ceremony for lunch and bridal party photos.

Ashton & Caine had a first look moment together before we started into the formal photos. I love this idea for couples who chose to have evening ceremonies!

When Ryan Met Taylor – Chauvin Wedding Photography

Taylor and Ryan got married on on of those August Saturday’s that you really don’t know if its going to be sunny or if it’s going to pour. People say it’s good luck for there to be some rain on your wedding day – so this couple must be lucky! It did rain – but it seemed to only rain when everyone was already indoors. It rained while the girls got ready, it rained during the ceremony and it even rained a bit while I was driving home. The only times it wasn’t raining was when we were outside taking photos!

2nd Annual McMini Sessions

The 2014 McMini Halloween Sessions were a HUGE success! There were over 30 mini sessions of some of the most adorable costumes I’ve ever seen!

Over $1,500 was raised for the Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta! I am already looking forward to running the McMini’s again next year so feel free to mark your calendars now!

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.

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.
