Greyson – Stettler Graduation Photography

Being that this guy is family – it’s pretty much a given for me to say I’ve known him his whole life. I’m pretty proud of this cousin of mine and everything he has accomplished. We are all looking forward to seeing what you do in the future Grey! You’re bound to do great things, pal! Keep up the fantastic work! 2019-07-03_00102019-07-03_00112019-07-03_00072019-07-03_00082019-07-03_00092019-07-03_0006

The Diegel Family – Stettler Lifestyle Photography

It’s been quite some time since my last blog post! I took a creative break from my camera and I’m so excited to be out capturing memories again. These gorgeous ladies were such a blast to work with and I am so thrilled to be sharing images again!

I am now based out of Stettler, AB and am keen to start booking more lifestyle sessions in the area. I specialize in families, couples, engagements and newborns.

Thank you so much to the Diegel ladies for this awesome session! You ladies are so beautiful both inside and out! 2019-07-03_00022019-07-03_00032019-07-03_00042019-07-03_00052019-07-03_0001

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 Kate met Cameron – Fairview Wedding Photography

I do not even know where to begin with this wedding. So simply put – It was an honour. An absolute honour!

I met Kate exactly ten years ago in our first week at Grant MacEwan. We took the design program together so it’s fair to say we spent many hours together enjoying kraft dinner straight from the pot, some cheap beer, MANY trips to Tim Hortons and an equal number of dance parties to some of our favourites (Hello Seattle basically played on repeat on our 15 minute drive to the school.)

Needless to say – I know this girl well and I could not have been more excited when she asked me to photograph such an important day. It was a perfect day filled with so much love, friendship and laughter. It’ll always be a day I look at and grin – and from this summer forward I have a whole new outlook on KFC – It’s no longer just a fast food restaurant. It’s Kate and Cameron’s favourite – AND it really just means ‘Kate found Cameron. (We can thank Kate’s dad for that one.)

I’m beyond happy for my dear friend and am so excited to be sharing these photos! I apologize in advance for the length of this post! Photo overload commence!

OH! AND! Have I mentioned that Katers is incredibly talented? She made their cake and all of the cupcakes the week of the wedding!

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?!

Lukas and Mom – Mommy and Me Lifestyle Session – White Rock, BC

Last week I attended the Canada Photo Convention in Vancouver, BC. During the week I was inspired by so many amazing and talented photographers. The experience has opened my eyes and I am more excited to capture life’s special moments more than ever before. (If you’re a wedding photographer and have never attended you should absolutely check it out – the Wolfpack is an amazing family of photographers.)

With that being said… I was super lucky and got to visit one of my most dear friends and her little man in White Rock for a couple of days after the convention. It was perfect. These two are the best of friends and its spectacular to watch them hang out.

Eden’s First Birthday – Wainwright Cakesmash Session

I can hardly believe that a whole year has passed since I met this sweet little one for her newborn session! Miss Eden is so full of spunk and it’s been such a pleasure to watch her growing up! (I even get to babysit her from time to time and she’s the cutest thing ever!)
