With the way the weather is today I figured if you can’t beat them, join them! So today’s blog post is actually the first winter wedding that I’ve had the pleasure of shooting! I second shot Chelsea and Clayton’s wedding with Blake Loates in mid November and we were so lucky to have absolutely perfect weather for a winter wedding, minus the absolutely frigid temperatures! I’ve never met anyone as much in love as these two and couldn’t has imagined a better first winter wedding! Congrats C&C!

 

On this above average February day I am reminded of the beautiful fall evenings of this past year and the amazing couples I was able to spend them with!

 

I have had the pleasure of working with Andrea at The Edmonton Rush for 4 or 5 years now and she has become a good friend of mine. Last year during a game her awesome fiancé Kyle surprised everyone, including myself, and proposed to her in front of thousands it was truly an amazing moment so when I was asked by these two to not only be a part of their upcoming summer Canmore wedding but a golden fall engagement session in Calgary as well, it was a no brainer!

 

Below are some of the images we capture, every time I look at them I get goosebumps thinking about what we will be able to create this summer at their wedding! Congratulations Andrea & Kyle!

 

One of the things I pride myself greatly on is being an entrepreneur, it takes a lot of perseverance and hard work so naturally when one of my friends chooses the path of an entrepreneurial business I quickly become one of their biggest fans, it’s all about local talent! With Cannon it was no different, she has started from the ground up with her personal fitness training company Cannon Fit and is well on her way to success! I was honoured to be able to help her create her first selection of images to help promote her business and I look forward to working with her in the future, if you’re looking to get in shape check Cannon out!

 

Cheers,

It’s not very often that I do a sibling session let a lone a sibling session with a couple of 20 somethings but boy am I glad that Brittany came to me with this request. A longtime friend of mine, Brittany approached me with the request to photograph her and her brother so that they could send some updated photos to their family, a fantastic idea but not very common for a brother and sister in their twenties. So we headed out into the beautiful city and attempted to create some amazing images without looking like they were dating (That was the challenge). I think what we managed to create was bang on and pretty darn special, take a look!

One of my favourite events to photograph every year is the Rainmaker Rodeo that comes to St. Albert. For the few days it’s here it becomes a hub for residents who are not only rodeo fans but concert, carnival buffs as well. The Rainmaker is known for bringing in high caliber acts such as Dean Brody, Vanilla Ice and many others. This year the headliner was Tim Hicks and as usual did not disappoint. While on assignment from the St. Albert Leader this year I captured a wide variety of images and here are a few of my favourites. I highly suggest heading on over to www.timhicksmusic.com and purchasing some of his awesome music.

 

Cheers,
