I met these two lovelies through a mutual friend who I went to Emily Carr with. Taylor & Graham were in search of a photographer for their beautiful Banff wedding, and I have always wanted to shoot a wedding in Banff! The set up seemed too good to be true and it got even more perfect once I realized that Taylor and I have the same email personality! She uses almost as many explanation marks as I do, and I could practically hear her excitement through her typed words! We booked their date, but I hadn’t actually met either of them until I planned a little trip to Calgary to do their engagement photos! These two are adorable (you can see it in every photo!) and they have the cutest story about how they met! They actually attended the same University without ever meeting, but good old fate still brought them together. While Taylor was working an internship at Graham’s place of work, they saw each other through the midst of a bunch of workers during a routine “stretch break” in the halls. They were both instantly intrigued at one another and said that every time they would stretch they would try to sneak a peek at one another! Graham seized the moment shortly after when he casually walked by Taylor’s office to introduce himself! Too flippen cute! They are such a great match in every regard: she is absolutely stunning, smart and funny and he is undeniably handsome, also smart and adorable! We had so much fun together roaming about a few different parts of Calgary (I was very excited to shoot in some new places!) and our time together made me that much more excited for their magical wedding day in Banff! I adore you two! So much love to you both! xo

When Nicole first contacted me about her and Shane’s wedding, I knew that I was going to love them based on how great she sounded from her emails alone! ! When I sat down to meet with them, I was even more convinced! Nicole is the sweetest (and most stunningly beautiful) person and Shane is so handsome an has a charming twinkle in his eye! A lot of the time I just meet with the brides to discuss their wedding, but Shane came and was such a sweetheart: he was 100% trusting of whatever crazy ideas that Nicole and I were coming up with and he was such a great sport! I could tell that he was just truly excited to marry the woman of his dreams and to give her the day that she wanted! When we planned their engagement shoot we had no idea that Kamloops was going to get a crazy cold streak, so despite the -20 weather that was anticipated for the day we decided to start out at one of my favourite coffee shops in town, Red Beard Roasters to warm their hearts and bodies for the cold shoot ahead. I love how much fun they had just doing something as simple as drinking coffee, and I loved that I never heard even a squeak of a complaint over the cold or the silly things I made them do while in the snow! Nicole is a natural in front of the camera, I swear I couldn’t take a bad picture of her if I tried – which makes me so so so excited to photograph her in her wedding dress! We headed up in to the mountains to find some untouched snow and we had so much fun running to and from our warm vehicles to take pictures, and then back in to the vehicles to warm up that I didn’t even realize how chilly it was outside! If this session was even a little bit indicative of how fun their wedding day will be, I am so unbelievably excited to be a part of it! I can’t wait for your big day! xo
