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

Iron Goat Pub and Grill ~ Canmore Wedding Photography

What a gift to get to work with these two incredible people... Sonya and Perry are two of the nicest, most easy going people you could be fortunate to work with. I knew from our very first conversation, where we discussed their wedding day that we would be a match made in heaven. When it came time for me to photograph their engagement session, it was like going for a walk with great friends and taking some photos. We had a glorious sunset to work with in Canmore. The setting, the company and the conversation was great. Their wedding proved to be just as lovely and memorable.

Their wedding took place at the Iron Goat Pub and Grill in Canmore. We had such a nice day for their wedding. Warm sunshine bathed the deck at the Iron Goat making everything in it's path glow, including the love that shined off of Sonya and Perry. These two are surrounded by some really loving family and friends. It was such a joy getting to know a few of them and share in the bliss of their wedding day. 

Thanks to Perry and Sonya, I have tried their featured beverage from their wedding day, a red wine sangria at the Iron Goat, and I must say that is has become a favourite treat of mine in Canmore. It is delicious and comes highly recommended!

Thank you for the incredible journey of getting to be your wedding photographer, Sonya and Perry! I wish you both so much joy and happiness in life together. I am so grateful I met you both. Much love, xo.

Perry and Sonya were kind enough to send me this lovely testimonial from their experience with me as their wedding photographer. Thank you so much for your kind words. You guys are the best! 

"Jody, I wanted to send you some feedback on our experience with you as our chosen photographer - the one we trusted  to capture the memories of our special day. It may be difficult for me to fully express in words how totally blown away we were (are...) with the total experience. This refers to our very first discussions, to the initial engagement photos right through to the final pictures which we just received a few week ago. I remember warning you early on that we may be a challenging project (I'm not exactly the most photogenic .......) but you never wavered in your commitment to deliver. You did however severely under promise and then significantly over deliver on this commitment. You provided everything we asked for, captured the entire event in ways I could never have hoped for - yet you did this while seeming to be invisible. Without exception every person we have been involved in a conversation with about our wedding has mentioned you and how amazed they were with how committed you were to capturing our event. There seemed to be no end to what you would do to get the perfect shot(s). Keep in mind that they all said this without having even seen any of the final product - and the final results are stunning!!! There has to be several (maybe way more) award winning exposures in the collection you sent us. I remember thinking as you were setting up the shots that i wasn't sure they were going to be great - but then to see them afterwards - they weren't great - they were spectacular!!!! You took us to some amazing locales in the Canmore area that i have got to believe few were aware even existed and you captured all the special landscapes that we wanted - without us even knowing you were doing it. Thank you again for being a part of our day Jody. You are a true professional and you should be very proud of the work you produce!!!"
