Christmas Album Deadline

Hi Everyone,

So this is a bit of a lame post- no pictures- but I just wanted to make sure everyone knows my album approval deadline for Christmas delivery is next week. Please let me know asap if you are wanting your wedding album before the holidays. For prints, canvases and other goodies the deadline is December 5th. I know I've talked to most of you, but just wanted to give you another heads up in case.

And yes- I'm very behind on blogging- too busy working on some beautiful albums! Check back next week for another wedding post, some engagement shoots, babies and a family session. Fun stuff coming up soon on the blog....

I hope everyone is enjoying their October. Where has the time gone??? I can't believe our little one will making his/her's appearance in less then three months! Yeek!

Now back to work....

Andrea & Tim- October 17 2009

Andrea and Tim were married in Red Deer Alberta on Saturday and I was lucky enough to make the trip south to join them. They are two of the most genuine, sweetest people you could ever meet. The day went by so quickly and without a hitch. I knew Andrea in High School when we were both in drama productions together :) I actually spotted a picture of myself in her slideshow- dressed as a fairy- but from Midsummer Night's Dream- so acceptable. It's the first time I've made it into a clients slideshow, so it was kinda fun. After the speeches the DJ got everyone dancing to classic wedding music, it looked like a lot of fun doing the locomotion around-and outside- the hall. Hope the rest of the party went as well as your entire day and I wish you nothing but happiness in your life together.

Enjoy your sunny honeymoon!


Getting the dress on- Andrea was getting so excited it was adorable.

One of the reasons I love Central Alberta.


I have about a billion of Andrea sitting on this doorway- I really wanted to include one, so I went with the biggest laugh. She is just always full of smiles, so it seemed suiting.

Bubbles are fun.

They thought so too :)

Jennifer & Mark- esession

Jennifer and Mark are getting married next August at the beautiful Chateau Lake Louise. I'm already excited for their day! We got together to shoot their engagement portraits this week- another shoot in the cold! Edmonton's winter sure came early this year- what happened to the fall season? But the three of us toughed it out in the ravine with temperatures just around freezing. I really liked getting to know them better- we definitely shared a lot in common.

Here's a small teaser of some of your images.....

Angela & Mike- October 11 2009

Angela & Mike were married at one of my favourite Edmonton locations, The Union Bank Inn. Even though Edmonton surprised us with a small snow storm that day, everyone was excited to be part of their day. We ventured out into the giant flakes for some portraits before the ceremony and gorgeous reception with decor from Nuance Occasions. Their wedding was small, intimate and the ended up being perfect day to be warm and cozy indoors.

Thanks for sharing your very special afternoon with me.

Lots of Love,

Some of the design elements from the Reception. Beautiful work from Nuance Occasions.

Christine & Kyle- October 10 2009

Christine and Kyle were married at the Radisson in Canmore, Alberta surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rockies. It felt a little like a winter wedding, and not a fall wedding with temperatures dropping to -15 with the brisk wind chill. Brrr! I really felt for the couple and their bridal party as we took pictures outside. However with the help of pocket warmers, gloves, afghans and snuggling we managed to get through the day alright!

Thanks for sharing part of your day with me! I hope you had a wonderful reception and are enjoying Jamaica!

In Joy,

Christine had great open toe shoes- I wonder if she still would have chosen them if she knew there was going to be inches of snow on her wedding. (I hope so!)

Christine opted for Salon coverage- something I haven't got to do in a long time!

The ceremony began with a Musical Worship. The entire group sang about the Goodness of God. It was a beautiful expression of their faith.

Getting those rings on is always tricky!

Amanda & Aaron- esession

Amanda and Aaron are super fun couple with great active lifestyles- when I asked them what they liked to do together the list was never ending. I thought that was awesome, it's great to share so many fun interests in marriage. We had an enjoyable evening walking through the paths of Wagner Natural area- always a beautiful place to spend a warm evening.

Thanks for a fun night,


Melissa & Richmond- esession

Melissa & Richmond are getting ready to tie the knot in 2010. We met for some engagement pictures on another beautiful fall day. Rich had one request: he wanted train tracks. We found some less busy ones south of city and was able to fulfill his wish.

Thanks for playing in fields with me :)
