Marie and Pierre-Olivier | Silvertip Resort Wedding | Canmore, Alberta

Canmore is truly one of the most beautiful places in Canada, especially in the fall. Marie and Pierre had an absolutely beautiful fall day for their fall wedding at Silvertip Resort. I am most pleased to finally see them on my blog. 

Marie and Pierre chose Canmore as the location for a wedding because of their love the mountains and actives they share together in the area. Surrounded by many friends and family from all over the world they pledged their love for one another and committed their lives together. It was a privilege and an honour to be a part of their day.

Chyanne and Taylor | Canmore, AB Wedding | Canmore Wedding Photography

Between our lovely engagement session, and their even more beautiful wedding, it was such a pleasure working with this couple. Chyanne has to be one of the most kind, genuine and loveable women I have had the pleasure to work with. It is of little surprise to anyone that Tyler is so completely in love with her. You can sense that same love from all of their family and friends around her. They make a great couple together.

I am so pleased to share some of my favourite images from their engagement session in Kananaskis country, and their lovely DIY wedding that took place this past fall in Canmore AB. Chyanne went over the top with her incredible decorating and design ideas for their reception, which was held at the Miners Hall in Canmore, Alberta. She made everything from the backdrops to her own bouquets, and all of it was perfecting done.  

Huge thank you to both Chyanne and Taylor for bringing me along to document this special time their your lives. I wish you both a life filled with love, companionship and the joy you feel for each other every day you are together. xo

Mount Norquay Ski Resort Wedding | Banff Wedding Photography | Banff National Park Wedding

What a pleasure it was to work with Jared and Chandra for their wedding in Banff, Alberta. To say this wedding was of Olympic proportions would be an understatement. Jared and Chandra made sure the day flowed absolutely flawlessly. From choosing the elegant Paintbox Lodge in Canmore as their getting ready/accommodations site, to a beautiful ceremony and reception held at Mount Norquay Ski Resort in Banff. The day was really beautiful. 

The weather on this particular weekend was quite tricky, however. We had everything from rain, snow, and sunshine. A very typical Canadian Rockies day! I'm sure it is of no surprise to those who know the couple, they handled it with style, grace and sense of adventure. We took advantage of the gondola at Mount Norquay and did some snowy bride/groom portraits up high. I was more than happy to oblige!

When it came to celebrating the union of this incredible power couple, the night was full of great moments. Killer dance moves, Giant Jenga (in use to make the couple kiss), a choreographed dance performance by the wedding party and an extremely well done video curated by the bride's father. All of this adds up to a very memorable, special and beautiful wedding to photograph.

Deepest gratitude to Chandra and Jared for bringing me along to capture their momentous wedding day. I wish you both so much love, light and promise for the years I know you will cherish together. You two are so perfect for each other. Also, many well wishes for the next exciting chapter you two are about to enter. I can not wait to capture another beautiful milestone in your lives this coming fall. Many blessing to you both! xo

Canmore Nordic Centre Wedding | August 2015 | Jody Goodwin Photography

Such pleasure getting to photograph Lindsay and Johnny's Canmore wedding at the Canmore Nordic centre this past August, 2015 on a beautiful summer's day in the Bow Valley. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to photograph their special wedding. 

The day started off with a bit of hilarity on the part of the groomsmen. I happened to mention how much I enjoy characters and people with a good sense of humour. Johnny let me know that his groomsmen were just the ticket! Between sunny beers on their deck, to lots of jokes and gentle camaraderie, the groom/groomsmen definitely had me giggling and blushing all day long. Lindsay... Those eyes, that dress and yes, your bridesmaids were a ton of fun as well! You all were so much fun to work with!  

The rest of their day was filled with lots of love and celebration at the union of these two long time sweethearts. Lots of great speeches and tributes were delivered throughout their evening. One of my favourite memories from their day was a private first dance that took place outside, on their perfectly warm, clear/calm, and nearly full moon night. Definitely my favourite frames from their day. 

Thank you for bringing me along to document your day, Lindsay and Johnny! I hope you enjoy each other for many, many years to come. Lots of love and well wishes to you both. xo

Liana and Michael | Canmore, AB Wedding

I loved getting to work with Michael and Liana for their wedding in Canmore, Alberta this past August 2015. Their wedding day called for quite a bit of rain and occasional thunder storms. It rained (very hard) when we wanted it to, and cleared just enough to provide some really lovely, moody wedding photos when we wanted the rain to stop. 

This couple loves the outdoors so much. It is ingrained in their past times, their work and their connection to one another. It was so great to work with them, and know that going outside for portraits was the only options for the day. I also loved their decorations for their wedding! Lots of outdoor themed table settings and name cards were made by the Bride herself. She did such a great job!

The couple got ready in beautiful rooms provided by Solara Resort and Spa in Canmore, AB. The mood was light, relaxed, but full of excitement for the day ahead. Michael and Liana got married at Our Lady of the Rockies Parish in Canmore, AB. It was my first time photographing a wedding at this church. The service was lovely. 

After an afternoon of wandering the valley bottoms and some hillside sites in the Canmore area, we retreated from the cool weather to the comforts of the Cornerstone Theatre for the reception. Lots of humorous speeches and children playing about, lead to a wonderful wrap up of their day.

Thank you, Liana and Michael, for bringing me along to document your day and feel like a member of your family. It was so great getting to work with you, and your families! Warmest wishes for a great life adventuring alongside each other. Many blessings to you both, xo

Silvertip Resort Wedding - Canmore, Alberta

I am super excited to share both the engagement and wedding photos I took from my time with Teegan and Aaron this past year! They were such a pleasure to work with! They made my job very easy to show the love they feel for each other. So many giggles, long and loving stares, and cuddles to photograph. Just the way I like it!

Their wedding day proved to be nothing less. Lots of love was in the air on their very special wedding day on July 10th, 2015. The temps were warm, the sun came and went with the clouds, it was a perfect day to get married in Canmore, Alberta. I love shooting weddings at Silvertip Resort. The backdrop, the gazebo, the grounds, all of it is a pleasure to photograph. 

Along with all of the beauty that came with their day, Teegan and Aaron also brought along a whole lot of fun and some shenanigans to boot. I love when couples come up with a group activity the wedding party can partake in during their photo session. For this particular moment, they decided they wanted to shot gun beers for a photo. Lots of giggles, some apprehension and little bit of competition came to the table for this particular event. So much fun!

Teegan and Aaron also had a great way of discouraging/encouraging kisses during the reception. They created a large die that you had to roll, and then perform whatever action presented in front of all the guests. It was brilliant! Lots of fun to watch and photograph!

The day ended with a beautiful sunset on the grounds at Silvertip. It was the perfect ending to a great wedding in Canmore. Thank you so much Teegan and Aaron for bringing me along to capture your wedding day. I loved getting to laugh, celebrate and document your day. I wish you both the very best together, and I am so excited to see you guys grow as a beautiful family. Warmest wishes for your next chapter. xo

I would also like to thank Andrew Lunt Photography for his assistance during their beautiful day. Your help was much appreciated!

Falon and Derek's Summer Wedding at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club.

What a day this wedding proved to be for all involved! Between the summer temps that broke +37 degrees Celsius, to a car accident that nearly kept me from joining the reception, to one of the hottest and most lively dance's I've ever photographed, this day delivered! Big time!

Okay, let's back it up... To start, Derek and Falon are without a doubt two of the nicest people you could ever ask to work with and know. From the moment we met, at a great little coffee shop in Canmore, I knew they would be a pleasure to work with. Listening to them describe all of the different places they have visited in the world, and all of the places they couldn't contain their excitement encouraging me to also visit, I knew this would be a wedding to remember. 

Let's speed up to June 27th, 2015. The day was clear, warm and bristling with excitement as these two got ready to be married at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club. Solara Resort and Spa provided getting ready locations for both Derek and Falon; they were also the host of their reception. To say this day was hot, would be an understatement! To add to the heat, Falon's dress was hard to beat. She was beyond beautiful in her open back, low cut, beautiful dress. I loved getting to photograph her in it. 

Derek and Falon prepared me for the array of characters that would be involved at their wedding, they did not lead me astray. The day and night were filled with laughter, great dance moves and funny characters left, right and centre. I am super grateful I was able to get to know them better, as I almost didn't make the reception... While on route to Solara Resort and Spa, a car rear ended me, causing quite a stir on the path to their reception. Between desperate pleas with the ambulance and RCMP, I was finally freed to join the couple (uninjured!) and capture the many heartfelt speeches and awesome dance moves that ensued. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Derek and Falon for allowing me to be a part of your super, fun-filled wedding day! I wish you both so much joy, adventures abroad and at home with each other, and with the beautiful life you two are building together. You both are one of kind! Much love! xo

Here are some of my favourite images from their day. I hope you enjoy! xo
