Normally my blog posts feature recent work.
Today I wanted to introduce you to a fellow Calgarian and her Amazing Business- Sweetly Speaking.
Meet Barbara Forster
She has been operating Sweetly Speaking for nearly four years, but the business has been around since 2002.
Sweetly Speaking makes almost all their chocolates on-site and the chocolate is sourced from Belgium.
Sweetly Speaking has developed a method to create chocolates that are completely unique to you. They can create a custom mold of almost any object and turn it into an amazing work of art.
Yes, this sculptural piece is made entirely of chocolate.
If you are thinking about an ice sculpture for your wedding, they can create a chocolate sculpture (up to 5ft tall) instead.
White Chocolate, Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, they are all covered.
And of course, custom colours can be created.
When Sweetly Speaking first opened, their only focus was on weddings, but they have expanded to cover a much broader range of occasions and events today.
If you have a theme, they can create chocolates that suit it, whether it is soccer, hockey, cowboys, circus, if you can dream it up, they can probably create it for you.
Sweetly Speaking even has a liquor licence which allows them to create chocolate and wine (or other beverage) gift baskets.
For your wedding you can have chocolate wedding favours, a chocolate fountain, a chocolate sculpture, or even chocolate thank you gifts for your bridal party.
Who doesnt love chocolate.

This is such an incredible wedding. I was absolutely overwhelmed with all the colour and detail available. There was, as I have mentioned before, incredible food as well.
The couple had themed their wedding around fine art, and even had the cake inspired by Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'... So fun!!
I love weddings. I think I may have said this before, but I just love looking at these shots following the wedding and I always fall in love with the couple, all over again.
(I could love them for the awesome food too. I have never been to a wedding that hasnt had incredible food.)
But honestly, the brides and grooms never disappoint.
Weddings are absolutely fantastic, and I love it when I come across a groom with such amazing style. The white tuxedo was so striking, I couldnt stop getting great shots of him. Not to mention he was a man of details, right down to the Louis Vuitton cuff Links. WOW!
Of course the LOVELY bride was no slouch either. She had the traditional Chinese red silk dress for the tea ceremonies. Hair pieces to match. And then a GORGEOUS white gown for the wedding ceremony, with an entirely new hair-do. AMAZING stuff!!

This is J & B's wedding. They have to be the most FUN and creative couple that I have worked with to date. They knew how to throw a party for all their friends and keep all the wedding stress down to a minimum. Their wedding was just like they are, fun when it needed to be and serious only when it was truly appropriate.
I absolutely adored spending the day with them. But, I never would have been able to really capture all the great stuff I got without my assistant Claudia.
Lot's of new faces for the blog. Babies and bellies. Brides and Grooms. Its craziness, and here are just a few samples. Head on over to Facebook and check out Sunley Photography for regular updates. Become a FAN! Thanks so much for your support.
This first little one has to have been the easiest 6 month old I have ever photographed. She was sooo happy and cheerful and didnt even mind being out in the chilly weather first thing in the morning. What a DOLL!!!
This little teeny newborn was only a few days old and so co-operative. This had to have been one of the hottest days I ever shot in September. I love it when my clients trust me enough to allow me the freedom to create shots like the two below. Just in case you are wondering, the Motorcycle shot is a composite of two different images. I do not compromise the safety of little babies for great photos. She was very safe the entire time.
These last three photos are from the MOST AMAZING wedding I have ever had the pleasure of attending. They were so gracious and charming and really took the commitment of marriage seriously. They wrote their own vows and asked me to hike into the bush to help them capture their ceremony just shortly after dawn. Thank you for the opportunity, I thoroughly loved the day and doing something so unique and different.
