Brooke & Ben – Kelowna Wedding at Bo.ttega

Brooke is awesome. Ben is awesome. Their family & friends, yup, awesome. I love getting to work with such fun people in stunningly beautiful areas of the world – such was the case with B&B’s wedding earlier this month in Kelowna at Bo.ttega. I’ve shot at a number of purpose-built wedding/event venues and they all hold their own, but Bo.ttega has set a new standard in my eyes. It made the perfect backdrop for their wedding, a hidden gem in the wooded hills overlooking the city of Kelowna. Even getting out to the Okanagan was a blast – took two days, camped in both Revelstoke and Penticton, had the paddle board out, went swimming, fishing, and all kinds of exploring. The wedding day was the only ‘off’ weather day that week, but as if by some miraculous intervention the clouds parted at the exact moment we needed them to just prior to the ceremony, and from then on the surreal light peeking through the clouds dappled the ceremony, and by the time we headed off to do the shoot we were under full skies. A quick stop at Tantalus, then on to a couple other spots I had scouted the day before. Getting back to the venue, there was a full pig on the roast, delicious appetizers, and champagne bottles by the dozen. Chef Martin of The Chef In Stead provided the food to keep everybody smiling (photographer included). The party lasted long (long long long) into the night – and definitely capped off a fantastic wedding day for Brooke & Ben!_ND86044 DSC_6381 _ND85968 DSC_6645 DSC_6405 _ND86102 _ND86108 DSC_6403 DSC_6439 DSC_6490 DSC_6581 DSC_6705 DSC_7064 DSC_7077 DSC_7155 DSC_7187 DSC_7207 DSC_7209 DSC_7208 _ND86137 _ND86171 DSC_7559 DSC_7597 _ND86207 DSC_7606 DSC_7626 DSC_7693 DSC_7762 _ND86316 DSC_7807 DSC_7868 DSC_7924 DSC_8023 _ND86340 _ND85952 DSC_8437 DSC_8188 DSC_8205 DSC_8407 _ND86651 _ND86513 _ND86566 _ND86448 _ND86593 _ND86664

Gill & Dale – Edmonton Summer Wedding


Last month I was up in Edmonton to shoot Gill & Dale’s wedding at the Edmonton Scottish Society. I get up ‘north’ once or twice a year, and I have to say that even though my upbringing in Calgary trained me to dislike the capital city, I have found more and more things I like about it with each return visit. Early May was no different, as the river valley was lush and green, the early summer skies a deep blue, and surprises around every corner. Invariably when I shoot in a new city, I am attracted to way more locations than I’ll ever have time to visit, but it’s that same attraction that draws out the best creative inspiration. For Gill and Dale I knew I’d be with a couple that was loads of fun, super easy going, and incredibly playful with each other. The same was true for their bridal party, a great group of friends and family surrounding and supporting them. The Edmonton Scottish Society facility has a great old-school feel to it with rich wood, massive stone fireplace and a large vaulted ceiling. It made a perfect backdrop for both their ceremony and their reception. After the family photos, we headed off to a few spots I had scouted in town, then back in time for cocktails and to raid the candy table. Somewhere in there, the group also invaded the photobooth and gave me so much (too much?) to review the following day – all in good fun!! Was an absolute treat to capture their wedding day – hoping to get back up to Edmonton again soon.

Summer esession with Jane & Colin



Just a few sneaks from the engagement session I did with Jane & Colin the other week in Calgary. The clouds were threatening rain the whole time but held off just long enough.  I can’t wait for their wedding later this month – going to be amazing knowing their personalities, attention to detail, and energy!

Brooke & Ben – Calgary summer engagement session

Wow were these two a lot of fun to hang out with! Going through the shots from our engagement session the other day I couldn’t believe how many of them were shots of two people laughing constantly. Needless to say I can’t wait for their wedding day!_ND83346 DSC_3892 _ND83240 _ND83248 _ND83289 DSC_3425 DSC_3483 DSC_3535 DSC_3647 DSC_3691 DSC_3751 DSC_3834 DSC_3886 DSC_3902 DSC_4003

Emma & Evan – Spring Wedding in Canmore, Alberta


Spring in the mountains is a wonderful time for a wedding – with patches of snow still dusting the peaks, warm afternoon sun, and classic punchy blue skies. Of course it’s not always a beautiful day, but when Emma & Evan tied the knot last month it was truly spectacular. The energy was high when I arrived to capture the getting ready at the amazing Solara Resort  and carried right through as they made their way to the very quaint and timeless St. Michaels Church just off the main street in town. It was standing room only as their friends and family came out to support this super fun couple on their wedding day. Following the ceremony, we headed off to a couple spots I had picked out in town, and made it back to the Cornerstone Theatre in time for some cocktails and dinner. I had never shot at this place before, but it’s going to be one I will be sure to recommend – really nice character space with the right mix of ambience and feel to go along with the tasty food. The speeches had just about everybody alternating between laughter and tears. I’m excited for what the future holds for these two!!DSC_7942 DSC_7982 DSC_8085 DSC_8151 _D3X3900 DSC_8096 DSC_8311 _D3X4000 _D3X4074 DSC_8264 DSC_8036 _D3X4096 DSC_8409 DSC_8433 DSC_8422 _D3X4135 DSC_8600 _D3X4246 DSC_8723 _D3X4308 DSC_8669 _D3X4268 _D3X4377 DSC_8999 _D3X4414 DSC_8836 DSC_8840 DSC_8890 DSC_8758 DSC_9022 _D3X4460 _D3X4450 DSC_8993 _D3X4494 _D3X4563 DSC_9279 DSC_9488 _D3X4596
