susy and chris. engaged. edmonton engagement photography. by Cheryl Lukasewich

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!! 2013-11-25_0001.jpg 2013-11-25_0002.jpg 2013-11-25_0003.jpg 2013-11-25_0004.jpg 2013-11-25_0005.jpg 2013-11-25_0006.jpg 2013-11-25_0007.jpg 2013-11-25_0008.jpg 2013-11-25_0009.jpg 2013-11-25_0010.jpg 2013-11-25_0011.jpg 2013-11-25_0012.jpg 2013-11-25_0013.jpg 2013-11-25_0014.jpg 2013-11-25_0015.jpg 2013-11-25_0016.jpg 2013-11-25_0017.jpg 2013-11-25_0018.jpg 2013-11-25_0019.jpg 2013-11-25_0020.jpg 2013-11-25_0021.jpg 2013-11-25_0022.jpg 2013-11-25_0023.jpg 2013-11-25_0024.jpg 2013-11-25_0025.jpg 2013-11-25_0026.jpg

velvet and pete. in love. edmonton couples photography. by Cheryl Lukasewich

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 velvetg@telus.net :)

Here's a look at some of my favorite shots from our time together!  Check out more of my couples photography in my engagement and wedding posts! 2013-11-22_0001.jpg 2013-11-22_0002.jpg 2013-11-22_0004.jpg 2013-11-22_0005.jpg 2013-11-22_0006.jpg 2013-11-22_0007.jpg 2013-11-22_0008.jpg 2013-11-22_0009.jpg 2013-11-22_0010.jpg 2013-11-22_0011.jpg 2013-11-22_0012.jpg 2013-11-22_0013.jpg 2013-11-22_0014.jpg 2013-11-22_0015.jpg 2013-11-22_0016.jpg 2013-11-22_0017.jpg 2013-11-22_0018.jpg 2013-11-22_0019.jpg

hawrelak park engagment | graham and kyla. engaged. edmonton engagement photography. by Cheryl Lukasewich

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 :)

rebekah and kerran. styled bridals in mexico. edmonton destination wedding photography. by Cheryl Lukasewich

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 :) 2013-04-05_0010.jpg 2013-04-05_0011.jpg 2013-04-05_0012.jpg 2013-04-05_0013.jpg 2013-04-05_0014.jpg 2013-04-05_0015.jpg 2013-04-05_0016.jpg 2013-04-05_0017.jpg 2013-04-05_0018.jpg 2013-04-05_0019.jpg 2013-04-05_0020.jpg 2013-04-05_0021.jpg 2013-04-05_0022.jpg

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!
