C&D - Fish Creek Park Fall Engagement Session

C&D - Fish Creek Park Fall Engagement Session

Fall is always a busy time for engagement sessions for me, and it's always feels like a guessing game as to when the perfect time for fall leaves will be. We met Cathy and Darcy in Fish Creek Park last October and managed to catch the very end of the fall colours. Cathy & Darcy love being silly together and there was no shortage of giggles during our session. I also loved the bright neon blankets they brought along for cuddling!

Sacha & Jim - Fort Calgary Wedding Photography

Sacha & Jim - Fort Calgary Wedding Photography

When I first met with Sacha about 8 months before her wedding, she explained to me how important it was for her and Jim to incorporate family traditions into their wedding ceremony. They were both raised in Catholic homes and chose to have their ceremony at the beautiful St. Mary's Cathedral downtown. Jim's family is from Nova Scotia, so the East Coast theme was woven throughout their day. Jim wore a traditional kilt, a bag-pipper pipped the newlyweds out of their ceremony and into their reception and the decor at the reception included the family tartan.

Denise & Joel - Inglewood Engagement Session

Denise & Joel - Inglewood Engagement Session

One of my favourite ways to meet a new clients is when they come to me as a referral from past clients. Shortly after I posted Jay and Joanna's sneak peek this summer, I received an email from Denise and Joel wanting to chat about their wedding next summer. Within no time, we were planning their engagement session. As is often the case in Calgary, "fall" is usually about three days long and  it was especially weird this year since we the snow came at the beginning of September. Denise and Joel wanted a fall engagement session, but they wanted a more urban feel to their photos, so the fact that most of the leaves were already on the ground was ok.

Katrina and Steven are a super sweet couple who have know each other since High School. They love travel and adventure, so when Katrina suggested engagement photos in Canmore, we were very excited.

Steven took Katrina to her favourite park from her childhood and proposed under the stars.Luckily when we headed out to Canmore, it was a beautiful, summer day.

Julia and Rob - Rustic Summer Engagement Photos - Ghost Lake Alberta

Julia and Rob - Rustic Summer Engagement Photos - Ghost Lake Alberta

When I first met with Julia and Rob, Julia had her heart set on some rustic summer engagement photos. They are planning a downtown wedding for this fall, so they wanted their engagement session to have a completely different feel. Julia even picked out one of the most beautiful spots out by Ghost Lake in the foothills. We were all on pins and needles the afternoon of the session as the forecast was for severe thunderstorms and a terrible hailstorm passed north of the city. But we were very lucky and somehow the storm passed right around the valley and instead gave us the most dramatic skies.

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 :)

Sarah & Brian – Downtown Calgary Engagement Photography

On one the longest day of the year, I met Sarah & Brian in downtown Calgary to take some beautiful sunset engagement photos. Sarah and Brian are in love with the city of Calgary and wanted to showcase it’s urban beauty in their session. We started in the Crescent Heights area to really show off the beautiful city views from the hill. Then we headed into the East Village to catch the sun setting over the river. Our session ended with the fun city lights in Olympic Plaza. Sarah and Brian are such a fun, relaxed and affectionate couple. It was so easy to grab beautiful shots of them because they put each other at ease and just melt into beautiful poses.

Todd & Arlee – Calgary Zoo Engagement photographer

Todd and Arlee are such an amazing, beautiful couple. I met them at a Bridal Show in Red Deer and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding. Todd and Arlee both have told me they waited a long time to find each other…even living 4 minutes apart for years before they met! Todd and Arlee love to take weekend trips together around Alberta, so we met at the Calgary Zoo early on a Sunday morning for these photos. The Calgary Zoo is very special to them, since it was where they had their first official date. We also wandered into Inglewood and found a park for our football themed engagement photography.
