Edmonton Wedding Photographers | Jennifer & Ryan | Hotel MacDonald wedding

Jennifer & Ryan’s Sunday wedding rounded out my triple header wedding weekend ( remember Mikalea & Bob and Sharla & Will?) with a beautiful early afternoon ceremony and reception in the Harvest Room at the Hotel MacDonald in Edmonton. We met up with Jennifer earlier in the day at Ryan’s parents’ place where she was getting ready. I fell in love with her pretty tea-length wedding dress the moment I saw it. I also loved the sentiment behind the pocketwatch on her bouquet that belonged to her Dad. After getting ready, Jennifer & Ryan did a first look before we headed out to do portrait with their motorcycle and then to Hotel MacDonald for more portraits and family photos before the ceremony.

The ceremony was perfect and I loved how emotional Ryan looked throughout. You’ll also notice Jennifer clutching a tissue in a few shots… and it was well needed! After the ceremony there was a reception in the same room and it was just beautifully put together by fabulous Edmonton wedding planner Kristina McAnally from Special Event Rentals with beautiful flowers from the Wild Orchid Flower Shop featuring a cool colour palette of red and aqua. It was a great day! Congratulations Jennifer & Ryan!

Banff Wedding Photographers | Mikaela & Bob | Buffalo Mountain Lodge wedding

I was super excited to head to Banff for Mikaela & Bob’s wedding! We met up with them at Buffalo Mountain Lodge, which has become one of my favourite places in Banff for a wedding, to hang while everyone got ready. I loved Mikaela’s dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses as well (the blue was fabulous!). I also loved the girls’ cowboy boots… they looked awesome with their dresses! After getting ready, we headed into town to the ceremony at the gazebo. After doing family photos be the river, we headed out near Two-Jack Lake to take some photos near the water. We sent Mikaela & Bob out to a little island for some photos of the two of them before sending out the wedding party… I’m so happy they didn’t think I was toooo crazy for making them hike out through the water! We also managed to get the bride & groom into a canoe for a few shots as well before heading to the fields on the way to Bankhead where we also stopped for some champagne and a few photos at the ruin’s of the old church. We had a blast with Mikaela, Bob and the crew… such a good time with a super fun bridal party! We ended the night at Buffalo Mountain Lodge for the beautiful reception featuring sunflowers and amazing horseshoe table numbers that were made by the family. It really couldn’t have been any more perfect! Congratulations Mikaela & Bob!

Edmonton Wedding Photographers | Helan & Jamie | Oasis Centre wedding

Where to start with Helan and Jamie’s wedding? It was a beautiful day but there was a little smoke blowing over town from some forest fires up North so we were a little concerned about the outdoor ceremony and air quality, but all worked out well! I started the day and Helan & Jamie’s home where I photographed all of Helan’s fantastic jewelry,  her TWO wedding dresses (yup, two beautiful dresses, lucky girl!) and her perfect Jimmy Choo shoes. Excuse me while I swoon at the memory! After hair and make-up were done, we headed to the Oasis Centre to finish getting reading before the outdoor ceremony on the grounds. It really couldn’t have been more perfect and that little bit of smoky haze made some really pretty light. The ceremony was beautiful and afterwards we stayed in the gardens at the Oasis for wedding party photos before heading inside for the reception. The Oasis is such a fabulous venue and we had a great night of dancing and fun. I think I went a little overboard on the photos though… have fun looking through! Congratulations Helan & Jamie! It was an awesome day!!

Banff Wedding Photographers | A+K | Vermilion Lakes wedding sneak peek

We’re going to back to the beginning of September for this gorgeous photo of A+K taken at Vermilion Lakes in Banff National Park. I second shot this wedding for Red Bloom Photography from Calgary and had such a fantastic time. A+K were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Tunnel Mountain Resevoir overlooking Mount Rundle on a perfect early fall day. After visiting many beautiful mountain locations throughout the day, we ended the formal photo session with a few quiet moments overlooking the lake before heading off to Buffalo Mountain Lodge for the rockin’ wedding reception. I love Rocky Mountain weddings!!

Banff Wedding Photographers – Mikaela & Bob – Two Jack Lake sneak peek

I have a little bit of a crush on Banff. When I first moved West, I got really excited about seeing the Rocky Mountains but I couldn’t believe that they were that amazing. I mean, we’ve got mountains on the East Coast, but they were nothing like this! What makes the mountains in Banff even better? Combining them with a wedding, of course! I’m jealous of  the local Banff wedding photographers because all this gorgeousness is in their back yard and can spin a full 360 and have amazing locations and views in every direction! I try to get to the mountains as often as I can and I still can’t decide which town I like better between Camore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper… four-way tie maybe?

I was super excited for Mikaela and Bob’s wedding in Banff this past weekend. I knew they were a pretty awesome couple, but can you imagine how much more I loved them when I suggested they walk in Two Jack Lake on their wedding day, in full wedding clothes, to get to a little island for their wedding photos and they didn’t look at me like I was crazy? OK, maybe they thought I was a little crazy, I couldn’t tell for sure, but they seemed to be up for anything and boy did that make me get even more excited!

I simply adore this photo, on a teeny little island, with the tree mimicking their pose and surrounded by all the glory of the mountains and the gorgeous green water. Yup, swoon with me for a moment. I’m also fond of this moment since I got wade around in the water on a pretty toasty summer day to the this photo and that couldn’t have been any more perfect. Did I mention we also got the wedding party to hike out through water to the island for photos too? You’ll have to wait for the full wedding post to see that though, this sneak peek is just to show off Mikaela & Bob for now! Congratulations you two, it was a pleasure spending the day you with you and your amazing friends and family!
