Jori & Ryan's farm wedding

Jori and Ryan are a perfect example of how true love never dies, it only gets stronger with time.  When I first visited Jori & Ryan out on their farm, it was clear to me that they not only lived in paradise way out where they are, but being with each other WAS paradise.  

I learned so much from these two.  I learned that hard work and true love bear the fruits of an incredible future and legacy that they will one day leave behind for their own children.  I learned that their love for their land and their animals knows no bounds and benefits so many of us who use the products as a result of their laborious  work.  I learned that simple living can be incredibly rewarding.  The very fact that these two have so many lessons to teach me as well as others just by being who they are makes Jori & Ryan two people I will surely not forget for a long time to come.

Oh, and the passion between these two.... Yowzas!  It shows through just in the way they look  at each other, reminding us all what TRUE love really looks Like.  Congratulations to both of your burning hearts!

{Special thanks to Stephanie for all her help iin teaming up with me for this wedding.  Her added talents were a great addition to this collection and considering the distances we covered that day, I'm not sure what I would have done without you :) }




Adrian & Andrea - Married

Adrian and I go way back to our high school days.  An unlikely union of friendship born out of wrestling matches in the high school cafeteria stairwell and countless Mariokart defeats has led us to this moment.  What an honor it was when I was asked by my good friend to come back home and capture his wedding day.  Without a second thought I made my way back home to take part in what was an off the wall fun kinda day that I'm sure not to forget anytime soon.

Worth noting to those wedding photogs who think it's paramount to shoot a wedding with a second photographer or an assistant, you'll be surprised to know that this is one of many weddings I have shot absolutely solo, no help whatsoever.  I am very proud of this because those who do wedding photography know this is no easy task.

Special shout-outs to Karbs, Amzinouff, Duford, and Hairbob; the good times continue to be had after all these years.  Here's to many more as we scatter across the continent.

(The beautiful backdrop to those wondering, is the Devonian Gardens located just outside of Edmonton).

Much love to you both, Adrian & Andrea.



Sharlette & Pete - Married

Welcome back for another installment of my wedding blog series, playing catch-up from this year's wildly busy schedule.  This is Sharlette and Pete, and if you follow the blog, you'll know we have worked together earlier this year on multiple occasions leading up to their summer wedding.  When you're around these two, you might notice an element of youthful playfulness still very strong between them.  Because of that, they're alot like two people who have just fallen in love, (even though the y have been together for sometime), and it shows through, both when you're around them or even just looking at pictures of them. 

It's been such a pleasure working with these two over the past year.  The moments we have captured with these two are some of my favorite images from 2014 - I couldn't ask for better people to work with and get to know, (and if you know them, you know what I mean).

Congratulations to them both and all the best on their adventure together. 



Chris & Tiffany - Married

Chris and Tiffany are the youngest couple I have photographed this year and even though our time together was short, we captured some pretty cool shots for their special day.  They had some good creative input in the creation of some of these images, and the Japanese Umbrellas were a nice touch too - I loved those.  

My congratulations to you both on their official union of love, that is sure to last for ages to come!
