Stephanie & Kurt. Pyramid Lake Resort Wedding.

Fall wedding at Pyramid Lake Resort

Stephanie & Kurt love adventure, the outdoors and the mountains so it was  fitting that they were married at Pyramid Lake Resort in Jasper. I knew after meeting these two that their wedding would a romantic and super fun day. I traveled out to the beautiful resort in October to capture their amazing day and it was a perfect celebration of their love.

I loved that these two were willing to traverse precarious rocks to get the shot. At one point Stephanie’s train was almost blown into the lake by the wind as we walked across. They were troopers and I love the resulting photos.

The couple and the wedding party braved the cold for most of the pictures so we headed inside Jasper Park Lodge to warm up with some drinks before heading to the reception.

Fun Edmonton Wedding Photographer

This couple is so incredible and I am so excited to share some of my favourite images from their La Cité Francophone wedding this fall. Lisa and Mark are fun, adventurous and sweet. They compliment each other so well and I know that their awesome wedding was the beginning of an amazing life together!

Edmonton was hit some unexpected snow fall that Thanksgiving weekend and the snow was still coming down that morning. When I arrived Lisa was in high spirits in spite of the unexpected weather. She was so excited that the day had finally arrived!

Lisa’ s father couldn’t hold back his tears when he saw her in her wedding dress that morning. It was such a great moment and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

Lisa and Mark love the outdoors and adventure and their engagement story reflects that passion. Mark proposed during a hike with a gorgeous mountain landscape behind them. Lisa was completely surprised!

Brittney & Arnold. St Josaphat Cathedral Wedding.

Wedding at St Josaphat Cathedral in Edmonton

When I first met Brittney and Arnold for coffee I knew I wanted to be their wedding photographer. I could tell they were fun-loving and lively but also that they were sweet and caring. They have a great connection and I knew that their wedding day would be elegant and a ton of fun! I was so delighted when they chose me to capture their special day and now I am excited to share some of my favourite images from their incredible fall wedding at St Josaphat Cathedral and the Polish Hall!

The ceremony at St Josaphat Cathedral was beautiful with it’s rituals (the crowning, the candles and the ceremonial walk) as well as the moments shared between the couple. I love catching a smile or giggle during the ceremony.

Fall wedding day photos

We got some pretty heavy rain most of the day so we headed indoors for some shots inside the University. The students in this shot are studying as Brittney & Arnold danced under the chandelier. They may have been less than thrilled at our interruption.
