Jen + Caryn - Canmore Elopement Photographer

Minutes after Jen + Caryn's ceremony started, it began to rain harder than I've ever experienced while photographing; thunder boomed from all directions, before the clouds met in the middle, the downpour began, and it wasn't long before we were all soaked from head to toe. After the ceremony Jen said to me: When I looked over at Caryn and saw her smiling and laughing amidst all of the rain, I knew that I was marrying the right person.

Kaylene + Simon - Fernie Wedding Photographer

Fernie boasted the most incredible misty-rain day for Kaylene + Simon's wedding day; it was just enough moodiness to make their already stunning, well-thought out, and personality-filled day all that much more. I can also confidently say, that this was my first ever wedding where I got to throw on a parka, wander into a bar + room made up entirely of ice and watch my bride shoot vodka in an ice-made shot glass...you can find those snaps later down in this post--SO much fun!

B + Anthony - Canmore Wedding Photographer

These two have an air about them that can't hardly be put into words; if I had to try my best to describe how knowing them makes you feel, I would say that they are filled with a deep gentleness, a vast capacity to love, and an empathy + compassion for others that runs deep. 

B + Anthony flew up from the U.S once in the winter for their engagement session, and once again this past June for their intimate family-filled wedding in Canmore. Thank you both so much for trusting me to be a small piece in your day. xx.

Jenelle + Justin - Canmore Wedding Photographer

Even now, two weeks after these two got married out in the moody mountains of Canmore, I still cannot believe that we didn't once get rained on throughout their entire day. With a forecast certain of only rain, we experienced fog, sunshine, and cloudiness; everything but. I could not have asked for a more perfect way to kick of the 2018 wedding season than with Jenelle and Justin out in Canmore; thank you both so so much for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful mountain wedding.

Kat + Preston - Calgary Couple's Session

Continuously baffled at how in-sync the Universe and I are lately; week after week I am BLOWN away by the people that I get to work alongside of and photograph. Kat + Preston are right up there filed under "my people". I had the most incredible time photographing them while they were visiting friends in Calgary this past weekend, and I feel like it's inevitable that we'll get to cross paths again very soon!

Michelle + Tylor - Kananaskis Anniversary Session

One really cool thing about photographing in the Rockies, is that there are times where I get to meet people who are experiencing the gigantic presence of our mountains for the very first time in their lives; and although I can't remember my first experience with the Rockies (I've seen them for as long as I can remember), getting to experience their newness, mammoth, wise, and strong presence through the eyes of someone seeing them for the first time has to feel just as incredible.

A Month of Meal-Prepping

When it came to meal prepping for a full month, I really wasn't sure how this would turn out, if I would make the right quantities, or if we would still be wanting to each the same 5-7 meals by the end of the month, but you don't know until you try right?

Amanda + Jeremy - Kananaskis Elopement Styled Session

It's been weeks since we shot this elopement session out in Kananaskis, yet I'm still in awe of how it all came together; incredible things happen when you surround yourself with a crowd of wonderful individuals who commit, show up, and go above and beyond in what they set out to do. This session was one of two that Emily + I had put together for The Wild Kin workshop, and I'm still buzzing from the thrill of being out in Kananaskis, on the most incredible summers day, shooting these two babes amongst our workshop attendees.

Gloria + Graeme - Medicine Hat In-Home Engagement Session

Picture a heritage home, just shy of 100 years old and full of the most incredible character and quirks that your mind can imagine; now, imagine that home surrounded by a 10 foot tall fence of the most fragrant purple lilacs; standing tall, yet swaying gently in a summer breeze. Can you feel the breeze? Hear the bumblebees and the birds as the sun starts it's descent? Welcome to Gloria + Graeme's engagement session; it was all of those things and more.

Jen + Caryn - Banff Engagement Photographer

Have you ever watched two people really truly come to life--as their very best selves--when they are around each other? That's how I can best describe my time with Jen + Caryn; a love so very honest, and gentle, and limitless, and palpable, and true. Our evening together last Friday was so full, and free, and easy, in the best possible sense of the word.
