Sonja & Alex – Royale Restaurant Wedding

Every once in a while, I have the pleasure of photographing a wedding day that is quite unique from any day I’ve experienced before. Sonja and Alex’s intimate wedding at Royale felt like that. In front of their closest friends and family, S & A said their vows inside the stylish interior of the downtown restaurant, and enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio with signature drinks, and great conversation. I had the pleasure of focusing on what mattered most to them – portraits of the two of them, their ceremony, loved ones, and detail shots of their beautiful venue, including the food!

If you’re looking for an intimate reception venue, I highly recommend Royale or any of Teatro Group’s venues.

Cheers to their fabulous vendors:

The Norland Estate – Wedding Inspiration

It was an honour to be featured on Grey Likes Weddings this Spring, with a project that was so special to me! The moment I set eyes on The Norland Estate, I fell in love with it. Soon after, we decided it was our own wedding venue. With Paper Doll Events on board, we dreamed up an inspiration shoot with a fine art feel, romantic details, and breathtaking florals courtesy of Flower Artistry. We were met with a dreary, rainy day, but the vendors came together to make the shoot everything we hoped for. I hope you enjoy looking through the gallery & find yourself inspired! I know I was so inspired by Paper Doll Event’s design!

Sharon & Madison – Rouge Restaurant Calgary Wedding – Calgary Wedding Photographer

Rouge Restaurant is one of my favourite venues in the city. It’s classic, has a backyard and garden area for ceremonies and cocktail hour, and then a perfect tent for outdoor receptions. And then there’s Sharon & Madison, my wonderful couple. Their day was touching, romantic, humorous and of course, beautiful. It was such a pleasure working with them and photographing all the magic of their day. This gallery brings me so much joy, I get to relive this amazing day (which happened on the same weekend as I got engaged too!) and remember how thankful I am to have this career and meet the people I do.

Sarah & Jesse – Calgary Wedding Photographer

When Sarah asked me to be her & Jesse’s wedding photographer, I was so flattered! Photographing a fellow wedding photographers big day, that was a huge deal to me, and I knew it was going to be a stunning day. She teamed up with Paper Doll Events to design a gorgeous wedding day at a property that offered so much… horses, a winery feel, and a perfect place to set up the big white tent that I love so much. Sarah was absolutely glowing the entire day, she has the best smile and so much positivity, and I loved the way Jesse looked at her throughout the day.

I’m thrilled to say that Sarah & Jesse’s wedding day was featured in the latest issue of DOTE Weddings magazine! You have to pick up a copy of this stunning publication if you haven’t yet, it’s full of wedding goodness.

Something Blue Bridal Collection – Calgary Wedding Photographer

It’s been a year since I bought my first film camera and took it to NYC… which I can’t even believe. Although some rolls of film are still a disaster, and I have lots of room to grow, this shoot was my latest with my Pentax and I’ve grown enough to be proud of these. I’m so excited to share my first film & digital blog post with all of you!! These images are about 70% film, and 30% digital, which shows me that adding some film into my work was the right decision. Many of my favourite images were taken with my Pentax!

Anyways, back to this shoot. I love working with Blush and Raven, one of my favourite bridal boutiques in the city, and when I saw they were adding Something Blue to their selection, I was so excited to set something up. Add in Something Borrowed Beauty, Perla Mia Jewelry, and some beautiful models (who are also friends of mine) and we have a gorgeous bridal beauty session to share. I hope you all enjoy looking through these images that I’m proud to share, and that if you’re a future bride, you’ll be inspired!
