M & W - 1920s themed Carriage House Inn Calgary Wedding

M & W - 1920s themed Carriage House Inn Calgary Wedding

In Calgary, we see a lot of rustic styled weddings. While these are lovely, I always get excited when I meet a couple with a different plan! Melanie and Wilson planned an elegant 1920s themed wedding reception at the Carriage House Inn. They focused on lots of fun details that wove their theme together. Melanie and Wilson started their wedding day with a beautiful outdoor garden ceremony at the Calgary Zoo. One of my favourite perks of having part or all of your wedding at the zoo is that you have access to all the beautiful spots on the island for photos! Surprisingly, the dinosaur area has some of the best hidden spots... as long as you can hold off the busy Saturday afternoon crowds!

Amy & John - Downtown Calgary Engagement Photography

Amy & John - Downtown Calgary Engagement Photography

Spring this year has not been kind for outdoor photography…but this is not new for Calgary. Amy and John wanted a spring time engagement session, we ran into so much bad weather that we had to postpone their session three times! Luckily we managed to squeeze it in at the end of May. They are getting married this Saturday, so it was just in time! Even though spring took a long time to arrive, I am loving all the green and beautiful blossoms that are finally popping up everywhere! Amy & John brought along Ayden, their very adorable son. They are such a sweet family and I really enjoyed infusing some family photos into this session. I kept telling Amy that her and Ayden have the same smile :)

Shauna and Sadie - Wedding Photos Downtown Calgary

Shauna and Sadie - Wedding Photos Downtown Calgary

This very snowy winter has been a great opportunity for some very romantic winter wedding photos in downtown Calgary. When I met Shauna and Sadie in late summer, Sadie explained that they were planning a November wedding because she wanted snowy wedding photos. In Calgary, you never know what November will bring. We might have 5 feet of snow, or just brown grass and mud. Well, just for Sadie this year, we had a November filled with snow, complete with a fresh dusting of beautiful white snow on the morning of their wedding. Shauna and Sadie were married at their church, Hillhurst United, on the Remembrance Day Long weekend. This made it especially fitting that we headed over just a few blocks for their portraits at the new Soldiers Memorial along Memorial Drive at the 10th Street Bridge. It quickly became my new favourite spot for photos since it provided a beautiful city skyline along with awesome riverbank views.
