Jenny & Chris – Wedding at the Bar 11 Ranch

I’ve always loved shooting in the foothills of the rocky mountains in Alberta, so when Jenny and Chris mentioned they would be doing their ceremony on a ranch just north of the Crowsnest pass I was really excited. We did a fantastic engagement session just off highway 3, about an hour south of the ranch, where I got to know that this couple would be amazing to work with. On the morning of the wedding driving south past the city limits I couldn’t help but smile. It was one of those gorgeous blue sky days in early September where the warm summer air just hung about you like a favourite blanket. I met up with the girls getting ready at the house, and felt right at home myself. The guys opted to get into their tuxes at the ranch just down the road – a series of old hunting cabins. Fast forward to the ceremony, and picture the guests seated facing the eastern slopes of the rockies, with Jenny arriving by horse drawn wagon, held tight by her dad’s arm. Following the ceremony we checked out a couple old farm buildings on the property, and eventually made our way back to the beautifully decorated tents. The food was second to none – many thanks to the hard work of Devour Catering! After the food was cleared, the dance floor was filled and stayed that way thanks to the band TR3 – some really talented musicians I’ve been lucky enough to see over the years. Driving home under the inky blue sky and stars I found myself still smiling – thank you Jenny & Chris!!!



Cara & Murray – Fernie Engagement Session

Running around on the ranch with Cara & Murray, I had no problem seeing the love of the outdoors, and the love they had for each other. I had met Murray once before as he was a groomsman in a wedding I shot last year in the Columbia river valley. He first tracked down Cara on the golf course where she worked, and through some persistence finally got the date he was hoping for. She is a transplanted Scot, and it’s hard not to smile when you catch that great accent! It was a treat working with them and I know their wedding will be a massive party. Congratulations on your engagement, and thank you for letting me tag along for the night.
