This beautiful couple called me just a few weeks before their wedding to see if I was available. AMAZINGLY, I was!
Even if I hadn't been, I would have gone out of my way to help them find an awesome Photographer for their special day.
The Bride and I were close friends, all through our high school years. While our lives have taken us to very different places, we still make an effort to stay in touch, and when we get together, its like the years between never existed.
I was so excited to be able to see her marry this very sweet man!
Check out their engagement photos here.
There are so many details with this wedding that I just loved.
The bride wanted a casual, comfortable wedding, part of that included a non-traditional dress.
She made the trip up to Calgary before the wedding to go dress shopping, I was thrilled to be able to join her for this adventure because she wasn't searching for a traditional gown. She was more interested in something that fit her personal style and her ideas for the wedding.
This was the beautiful dress that we discovered!
The next step was finding some gorgeous boots to finish it off!
The beautiful Alberta foothills. There are very few locations that are as lovely!
The bride has an incredible family who made sure her day was taken care of. They cooked the food, prepared the site, decorated and cleaned up.
This wedding was a small intimate gathering, and the love that the family members and friends have for the bride and groom is evident in all that they did for the couple.

I took the Bride and Groom out for some creative, quiet time.
The Bride let me do some creative things with her! This is what we came up with.
Having a little Country Fun!
And some time with the horses!
Almost forgot to do the garter!
She wasn't really excited to have caught the garter.
Once in a while, I can be convinced to be in one of the photos.
for inviting me to share in your day!
Special Thanks also to my second photographer & assistant
