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

Also, a huge shout out to Julie Kundrik, my lovely helper for the day. As always, it was a pleasure to have you come along for the day. xo

Mount Engadine Lodge ~ Intimate Fall Wedding

Getting to photograph this wedding was pure privilege, and a pleasure. I adore how these two love each other. They wear their love for one another, on their sleeves, right next to their big, beautiful, open hearts. I have only known Craig and Lindsay for a short period of time, but any time I have spent with them, I couldn't help but admire how they loved each other. 

On this particular day in October, the air was crisp with the feeling of winter approaching in the mountains of Kananaskis Country, AB. The light was soft with clouds moving in and out, delivering the occasional dusting of snowflakes mixed with sunshine. It was a perfect fall day! 

Mount Engadine Lodge could not have been a more ideal, photogenic place for their wedding. It's rustic mountain feel, mixed with a hint ski culture, was the perfect base for these two adventurous souls. The decor was simple, elegant and hand picked by the couple themselves. What really made the day memorable though, was the love and joy that surrounded this couple in the name of family and close friends. With a guest total reaching slightly over 15 people, only the nearest and dearest came to attend such a beautiful union. 

The ceremony was filled with many loving moments, long stares of affection, warm embraces, and joyful excitement at the joining of these two. When the ceremony and family photos ended, we left Engadine Lodge to explore the natural beauty that surrounds this picturesque location. I knew when I first arrived that I could not wait to take them into the vast meadow that meets the lodge, begging you to step into it's tall, willowy field. It was in this field that I capture one of my most favourite frames of a bride. With her face turned to the sun, wearing a smile that said it all, surrounded by snowy mountains and sunlight that danced upon the field, laid one of the most beautiful scenes I have had the pleasure of photographing. I thought my heart was going to burst. I am so grateful she was willing to wander for that photo. 

I hope you enjoy this heart filled, beautiful fall wedding. If anyone out there is considering an intimate fall wedding in the mountains, I couldn't recommend it more. Mount Engadine Lodge is a perfect venue for this style of wedding. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Lindsay and Craig, for having me capture your incredibly beautiful wedding. It is one I will never forget! Warm wishes for continued love and affection for one another. xo


Jay and Kathleen - Delta Kananaskis Wedding

I love Kananaskis country. It really has to be one of the most beautiful parts of the Canadian Rockies. It proved to be extra beautiful on the day Jay and Kathleen got married last July at the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis.

The lodge is situated within the picturesque front ranges of the Canadian Rockies, only a short drive from Calgary AB. It boasts some of the most lovely views of the rocky peaks that welcome you into the Kananaskis range. To top off the great surroundings, the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis also provides every comfort and luxury you would want on a wedding day.

The day was perfect! We had blue skies, warm temperatures and were treated to a glorious sunset in the Rockies. Between the silence you experience on a windless day, the vast valley stretching out before us, and the joy they shared calling each other husband and wife; all of it was a lovely way to finish the day with them.

All throughout the day, there were plenty of loving, sentimental and joyful moments that unfolded between them and their closest family members and friends. It was an honor getting to photograph them and be witness to such a loving union. Best wishes for more love to grow between you and your family. xo
