Emily & Anthony. Winter Wedding at Sherwood Park Log Cabin.

Sunset photo of bride and groom

I got the chance to capture Emily and Anthony’s winter wedding in Sherwood Park. So many things made this wedding awesome: A great venue at the Sherwood Park log cabin, super stylish couple, beautiful details and of course there was the killer reception that had everyone dancing well into the night. But mostly this day was so great thanks to the couple themselves. Emily and Anthony are kind, fun loving and an incredible match.

The bride and groom shared personal vows during their ceremony at the Dow Centennial Centre. It was fun to see Emily poke a little fun at Anthony and get him and everyone laughing.

I always love when we get a chance to stop at a pub during photos. After finishing portraits the wedding stopped for a few at Oscar’s Pub before heading to the reception.

Avery & Cam. The Matrix Hotel Wedding.

Edmonton Wedding photographer

I am so excited to share some of my favourites from Avery & Cam’s big day. Their Matrix Hotel wedding was an absolute blast and I loved being a part this awesome couple’s day. They say fall in love with someone who makes you laugh and this couple has found that in each other. Avery and Cam is a couple who is constantly laughing and having fun together. I saw that on their fun engagement session and their wedding day was no different.  From giggling and holding each other after the ceremony to cracking up during their wedding photos these two a have a beautiful connection.

Had such a great lakeside engagement session with Lena & Mike this fall! We traveled out to Lena’s family Cabin near Athabasca. Not only was it a stunning location but a gorgeous warm fall afternoon too! Their Athabasca Engagement session was fun, romantic and it was such a treat to be invited to their family’s beautiful place on the Lake.

The couple and I had only chatted over skype a couple of times before the wedding so I was excited to finally meet them in person on the big day. I was pleased to find they are one of the most kind and warm twosome I’ve been able to photograph. They also have an incredible sense of humour and are incredibly fun! Each of them was quite relaxed that morning. They were just happy to be enjoying every moment of the awesome day in this spectacular setting.
