In September, I headed out to an adorable little church in the country with my friend Taylor Kanary as my sidekick for the day.
I photographed Annelise & Kris’ engagement session in October 2014 at Miquelon Lake, and it was awesome! It was so easy to get genuine photos of them, and I got so many adorable shots of them laughing, which are my favourite.
When I found out that they were going to do a first look on their wedding day, I was even more excited, because I knew that Kris would have such a great expression when he saw Annelise. Anytime I was around them, I could tell that they just love eachother so much, I’m pretty sure I had a goofy grin on my face their entire wedding day, ha ha.
Thank you two so much for having us photograph your wedding, it was an absolute joy to be a part of.
This past June, on what was probably the hottest day of the year, I captured an absolutely ADORABLE backyard wedding. Robyn was such a sweetheart, and so understanding when I kind of got horribly lost trying to find her Mom & Step Dad’s acreage! Oliver is from Australia and a lot of his family travelled very far to attend the wedding, unfortunately I was not the only one who got lost! 😛
As Lauren, the maid of honour, said in her speech, Robyn has always been more concerned about others than herself, and it was so easy to see that any time I interacted with her. Both Robyn and Oliver are surrounded by such amazing and supportive family members, and everyone was so friendly!
Thank you for having me capture your big day for you, it was awesome.
I don’t usually post family photos, but this sibling photo was just too awesome to not share.
Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet Shannon Szabados, goaltender of the Canadian Women’s hockey team! AND she even let me wear her gold medal, how awesome is that!?
For a project I have this semester at NAIT, called Major Client project we are required to work with an organization or business chosen by our Instructor. My group was paired with Ronald McDonald House. I had to be there at 7:15AM to get some photos of the breakfast that was provided by WestJet for their 18th birthday celebration. Shannon was also there to visit some of the kids. She was super friendly and you could tell she was really excited to be there to meet all the kids. It was awesome that she was so trusting and let all the kids (and adults, ha ha) wear her gold medal and hold it. They are surprisingly heavy! The crew from CISN Country Radio Station was there as well to interview Shannon. I had a lot of fun and I still can’t believe I got to meet her! It made having to get up and be there so early totally worth it. Thanks so much to the people at Ronald McDonald House for letting me be a part of it!
Later in the day, the rest of my group and I were back at the House to shoot their Open House Event. Some firefighters showed up with a truck, the Adventure Bus came, a police officer, some girls from Microsoft, and a ton of other people showed up. We got to spend the day photographing everything. There were so many cute kids running around and I think everyone had a lot of fun. The girls from Microsoft brought a bunch of swag, and an Xbox One for the House! So they got it all set up and to finish off the day we had a dance party playing Just Dance. I had a big smile on my face the whole time, it was a super long day but I would do it over again in a heartbeat. Ronald McDonald House is such a wonderful organization and it is probably one of the happiest places to be in. Before this project I didn’t really know a whole lot about it, but I am so glad I’ve had the opportunity to work with them. If you are interested in learning more about them, go take a look at their website!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post, I hope you enjoyed it.
