Kenna + Brett - Wedding Video

Before sharing Kenna + Brett's full post of wedding images, I wanted to share this little video that I made for them as a teaser. These two got married on August 5th out in Kananaskis, and I couldn't be more humbled or grateful to have been asked to be a part of their day.

Jen + Michael - Rodney's Oyster House, Calgary AB

There were so many incredible emotions and thoughts that I walked away from Jen + Michael's wedding from, but the one that was most prominent was the thought that every single wedding should have a live band. With both Jen and Michael being members of Revv 52, a Calgary-based performance ensemble, it only made sense that their wedding reception was filled with live music, surprise performances, and a jam-packed dance floor.

Hailey + Ty - Jasper Park Lodge Wedding

Ever since meeting these two over seven years ago, I knew that we’d be attending their wedding on day in the future. Mark’s known Ty since middle school--both growing up in the same hometown; and it was through my own relationship with Mark that I was introduced and grew close to these two.

Allie + Nick - Kananaskis Elopement

Ohhh these two; how do I even begin to express how happy I am to have had the chance to meet and get to know them over these last couple of months. Meeting Allie and Nick didn't feel like meeting strangers; rather, it felt like walking into a comfortable space and catching up with two people who I felt I had to have known for years prior, or perhaps in another lifetime even.

Allie + Nick

Lately, I've been crossing paths with humans who almost effortlessly fit into my days; Allie + Nick are two of these people who are just easy to be around. Hanging out with them was so wonderful and easy, talking with them was easy, and photographing them was easy.

Stephanie + James

You know those humans that you come across that just radiate positivity and inclusivitiy and lead their life in such an intentional manner? Meet Stephanie + James, a big-hearted duo that we are so fortunate to call our friends. Last weekend, we got together at Bridgette Bar downtown to start off what I think has been one of my favourite sessions thus far to be a part of.

Kenna + Brett - Calgary Engagement Photographer

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about photographing couples, and what having their moments together captured means to them, as well as to me. I've always had a firm belief behind why I do what it is that I do, but I've been feeling an expansion with that lately--delving more into what it really feels like to see these types of images of yourself wrapped in the arms of your person--and it's been such a fun exploration lately that I can't wait to soon share more of.

These weeks have been tough

For the past couple of weeks, I've felt the tug of delving back into blogging really pulling me back to the computer; I've missed daily and weekly casual/journal style posting, and if my feeling is correct, then I'm thinking that being at home most days with babe is going to catapult me back into the blogging that I've always loved (and have recently been missing).

Samantha + Kyle - Banff Engagement Session

I could not have asked for a better pair to jump back into shooting with than these two. Sam + Kyle met us out in Banff this past Saturday for their engagement session, and it made me even MORE eager to be a part of their off-the-grid intimate mountain wedding this coming fall.

Managing Self-Doubt - 40 Weeks Pregnant

Yesterday I was overtaken by the reality that I’ve known to be coming for almost a year now. I don’t know what it was in that moment that made things feel so different; so palpable, so present, so here and now. I kept using the word scared in between streams of tears, but even know I know that it wasn’t fear that I was or am feeling.

The Barefoot Baby - 39 Weeks Pregnant

Being pregnant in general has been my ultimate lesson of patience over these last nine months; but nothing compares to the patience that I'm learning throughout these final few weeks of waiting to see when this baby is going to decide to make it's journey out to join us in our physical space. It's a whole other level of anticipation knowing that something so huge is on the cusp of happening, while literally having no indication as to when it's going to take place; it's strange, and exciting, and can easily bring along a little anxiety if I don't keep my thoughts in check.
