Stephanie & Hareishun. Hindu Wedding at the Edmonton Convention Centre.

Edmonton Hindu Wedding

What an incredible experience Stephanie & Hareishun’s amazing two-day Hindu wedding at the Edmonton Convention Centre was! Seeing the traditions woven into each day, the beautiful connections, not only within each family but between the bride and groom’s families and above all the love and dedication between the newlyweds was incredible! Saturday’s breathtaking Hindu wedding ceremony was a grand and blessed affair that was so moving to capture. Sunday’s reception blew the top of the venue! All the guests, and of course the music-loving couple, were on the dance floor until the very end of the night. Chanting “one more song” at the DJ only worked a few times!

Thank you Stephanie & Hareishun for choosing us to be a part of your wedding!

Edmonton River Valley Engagement Session. Sasha & Brett.

Can’t say enough good things about our fun session with Sasha & Brett! We explored the Edmonton River valley and enjoyed the breathtaking colours it was displaying. Sasha & Brett are fun-loving and kind. We enjoyed chatting about anything and everything with these two and spending the evening getting to know them better. I can’t wait to share their special day with them in the summer!Edmonton River Valley Engagement ShootEdmonton River Valley Engagement Shootcouple sits in rocks in Edmonton River ValleyCouple piggy-back on bridge in Whitemud ParkCouple dips on bridge in Larch Sanctuary Couple kiss at sunsetCouple silhouetted in grassy hill Couple pose at Terwilliger Park Couple cuddle on rock in Edmonton river valley

Engagement shoots are one my favourite types of sessions to photograph because it allows me to get to know my couples better, make them feel more comfortable in front of the camera and they are a lot of fun. I always encouraged my clients to book an engagement session with me along with their wedding package! To see more fun engagement sessions click HERE!

Alison & Scott. Wedding at The Country Lodge. Scottish Wedding.

Edmonton Scottish Wedding

This day was full of so many incredible, fun moments. From the emotional first look, to the beautiful ceremony, to the bellydancer performances at reception and the dance party that tore up the floors at The Country Lodge! And of course, another highlight was the wedding party’s processional lead by a bagpiper, through the streets of downtown Edmonton, from All Saints Anglican Cathedral to Sherlock Homes Pub !

This is what the couple had to say about their special day “One of our favourite parts was being led by Alastair with the bag pipes in down town to Sherlock’s after the ceremony. We love the bagpipes and walking with our wedding party was definitely a cherished moment. We also loved the first look, it was really special to have a moment between us and appreciate each other before getting wrapped up in the big day. We also enjoyed tearing up the dance floor, watching Leslie the belly dancer, and playing around with the the sparklers at night!”

Carmen & Zach. Downtown Edmonton Wedding.

Downtown Edmonton Wedding

SO pleased to be sharing Carmen & Zach’s downtown Edmonton wedding from this summer! Carmen is bubbly and strong. Zach is warm and funny. Together they are one of the kindest and most fun couples I’ve had a chance to photograph. I was excited to hear they wanted a fully urban style photo session so we wandered around downtown Edmonton with their crew after a truly magical ceremony at Greenland Garden Centre. The perfect day ended with an all out dance party at the Matrix Hotel!

Carmen had this to say about her wedding day: “My favourite moment of Our Wedding… Hmm, well besides the obvious of marrying the love of my life of course I would have to say how blessed we were with perfect weather. After a summer of non stop rain, August 17th was an actual ray of sunshine. The day was gorgeous, the garden was lush, and our families were joyous, we couldn’t have asked for a better Wedding Day! We were all on cloud nine truly having the time of our lives; from the rush of saying I do, to having Lauren and her team make us feel like models adventuring around Downtown Edmonton for our photo’s right down to the family dance battles at the end of the night. Every part of our day was filled with love and non stop giggles, it was no short of magical! ”

An animated but light-hearted argument ensues as the groom and his attendants try to gain entry into the bride’s family home. This is a fun part of the wedding day where the Groom is tasked at either playing games or buying entry into the house to get his bride.
