Annelise & Kris | Miquelon Lake/Camrose Wedding

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.

Robyn & Oliver | Westlock County Wedding

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! ūüėõ

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.

Mark & Meagan | Leduc Wedding Photographer

This past June I got to be a side kick and second shoot this wedding with Lauren Voisin Photography. Mark & Meagan had their wedding in the absolutely ADORABLE blue chapel¬†at Van Es Camp. We were worried about rain, but luckily by the time the ceremony was over, the sun was shining again! Thanks again to Lauren for giving me the privilege of helping¬†capture Mark & Meagan’s big day!

Beethoven

It has been pretty quiet around here! I’m not going to lie I have been putting off writing this post. I have wanted to for awhile, but I figured maaaybe if I wait a bit I might not be bawling my eyes out while I am writing.

As most of you might know (if you don’t, you’re about to find out!) I love animals. Recently, I had to do one of the hardest things I have ever done. I had to say goodbye to my kitty who I have had since I was four years old. Aaaand cue the water works. Ha ha. Don’t worry, I will keep this short and sweet.

Beethoven (named after the composer; my sister was taking piano lessons at the time)¬†was the nicest cat ever.¬†We were always worried that if he ever ran away whoever found him would keep him because he was so friendly and affectionate. As I mentioned, my older sister named him. He was originally meant to be for her (and the family of course) but he kinda loved me the most. He would always meow and get cranky if I was gone for long periods of time. When I was little I would dress him up in doll clothes and carry him around like a baby, and it didn’t bother him one bit. He always loved to be held. It was really funny actually, he would meow because he wanted attention sometimes, and as soon as you picked him up he would immediately start purring. Sometimes you would just look at him and he would start purring his weird, squeaky, broken-engine-sounding purr.

I also used to let him sleep on my pillow, right next to my head when I was younger. As I got older that started to get annoying but I always had an extra pillow beside mine for him to sleep on. I won’t go into too much detail, but he was 18 years old, and for the past couple months he had been sick on and off because his teeth were getting yucky. Needless to say we thought it would be silly to put him to sleep to have them cleaned since he was so old. He was just too little and too old to fight it, so we had to make the decision to euthanize him. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. I’m just happy that he won’t be sick anymore and can be in kitty heaven (where they apparently get to eat tuna every day, according to my¬†fiance, Luke).

Here are some images I captured of Beethoven.

He always loved to hang out in the sunny spots in our kitchen.

A little while back I also had a fellow cat lover take some photos of Beethoven and I. I actually started tearing up when I looked at them. Thank you so much Taylor of Kanary Photography for doing this for me. I will cherish these images forever. You are the best.

Here are some of my favourites.

Michelle & Chris | Edmonton Wedding

I was lucky enough to photograph this wedding alongside Franklin Photographs. I was SO excited when I messaged Duane and he asked if I would like to come second shoot with him. He is a very talented photographer, and an awesome guy.

I got to photograph the guys getting ready, and every so often Chris would exhale/sigh sort of loudly because he was nervous and excited. I got the biggest smile on my face when Michelle did the same thing right before the ceremony began. I could feel their excitement, and it made it such a joy to be able to photograph their special day. Thanks again to Duane for having me come along!

Here are some of my favourite images from their wedding day.

Angela & Dan | Engaged

I am beyond stoked to share this beautiful, sun-kissed session! Angela suggested going to Fred John’s Park in Leduc for their session, because that was where her and Dan had their first date. They were fun and natural in front of the camera, and troopers for walking around the entire park in the hot sun!

Congratulations again on your engagement, I can’t wait to photograph your¬†wedding next weekend!
