After rescheduling twice due to some crazy weather I was finally able to meet up with Christie and Wes for their engagement session and I LOVED it!! I know Christie from school way back in the day and was so honored when she contacted me about photographing her wedding this September - I can't wait! Have a look at some of my favorite shots from our time together and stay tuned for shots from their wedding this fall <3

I was so happy when Susy and Chris contacted me earlier this year about photographing their wedding in 2014. I photographed them once before after they had their sweet little son as well as photographing Susy's sister's wedding several years ago. This family has been so incredibly supportive of me in my crazy business venture (THANK YOU!!). Have a look at some of my favorite shots from Susy and Chris' engagement session this fall. Can't wait for their wedding next July!!
And here's a few of their family all together <3
If you already have your coffee in hand you should probably stick around and check out more of my engagements here :)
A few months ago I received a facebook message on my Aeris page from a local woman, Kerry, who had a few questions about photography and photo editing. I noticed (via facebook creeping) that we happened to know a lot of the same people which, along with talking about photography, opened up other avenues of conversation. Kerry has a start-up story similar to mine (she started learning photography due to the intense desire to have a hobby) and I found that a lot of her questions were quite similar to the questions I had a few years ago. Now I by no means claim to be a master of photography (maybe when I'm 90? I love to think I'll keep learning and growing for the rest of my life!) but I was more than happy to meet up and chat/get to know her/swap stories/etc. We ended up setting up a time to meet and photograph together. Kerry found a beautiful couple, Velvet and Pete, to model for us and we spend some time chatting, posing and photographing their love. Thanks, Velvet and Pete!!!
**Shout out time: Velvet is an Arbonne consultant in Sherwood Park and Edmonton. I'm an absolute convert to their anti-aging skin care line (seriously, after using it for a few weeks I had 3 people tell me my skin looked "radiant" and "glowy") so feel free to contact Velvet to set up your own Arbonne party at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
I was sooo excited to photograph Graham and Kyla a few weeks ago. Graham had emailed me earlier in August with his awesome plan to surprise his girlfriend, Kyla, with a surprise photo shoot with a twist - A PROPOSAL!! Kyla works at the vet where I take my cat to get his nails trimmed and I put up with a few extra cat scratches just to avoid seeing Kyla and potentially screwing up the surprise! Graham asked Kyla to marry him. Kyla said yes :)
Have a look at some of my favorites from our time together :)
I met Penny through my dear cousin, Lisa, and couldn't help but instantly love her bubbly personality. Penny and her fiance, Tony, seem to LOVE to laugh which always makes my job way more fun. I can't wait to ring in the New Year photographing their wedding!! Have a look at some of my favorite photos from their engagement session! Feel free to contact me here, too, if you're engaged and looking for a photographer!
My husband and I got to meet up with our friends this past March when both of our trips to Puerta Vallarta overlapped for a few days. Rebekah was an absolute gem and had excitingly agreed to bring down her wedding dress so that I can take some destination bridals with her and Kerran. They didn't hesitate (well, Rebekah didn't hesitate lol) to jump in the ocean and roll around in the sand to get some fun shots. Their hotel was a bit unsure of us visiting to take photos so we had about 25 minutes to get it done! Thanks, Rebekah and Kerran, for your trooper attitudes :)
You know when people come into your life and then your life becomes richer because of it? That's what it's like with Lee-Ann and Mike. I worked with Lee-Ann for several years (and got to get to know Mike along the way). Both of them are full of the smiles and optimisim that are crazy contangious. I love it. And I love them! I can't wait to photograph their wedding this September!!
Cindy and Graham came all the way from Fort McMurray for our weekend engagement shoot this past January. It was sooo chilly but we made it work by having a nice little coffee break inbetween outdoor shots. I can't wait to photograph their wedding this July!
Photographing Karly and Tim was like a breath of fresh air. If you know Karly then you're likely laughing a lot because she's hilarious. She comes across as very joyful and very quick to giggle. I loved meeting her and Tim out at her parent's acreage. We got some great shots (and they have a freaking donkey!!!).
