When this day happened, Calgary had our first tornado warning (one of many to come I soon learned). I wasn’t sure if I should reschedule or embrace the chaos in the skies – dramatic clouds make for dramatic images (within reason of course). I was waiting for a call from the couple to see what their thoughts were, but that never happened.  So I left, keeping an eye on the skies and watched as they slowly went from black to blue.  And just like that, the day was perfect.

Stacey and David, amazing couple with amazing chemistry – life is good.

I love shooting engagements in July. The weather has been so nice here in Calgary, that it’s a shame I don’t shoot more. These two had a unique dynamic of their own – watching how close they were able to get with each other filled my heart. I truly love couples who can make the best of their engagement session… looking forward to their wedding!

Weddings are a great time for family and friends to gather together, especially when those that are closest are distantly furthest away. Lots of love for Joan and Brad on their wedding day as family and friends from all over came to celebrate. I’m always amazed at all the beautiful and encouraging things the guests speak about the couple. Gorgeous day, gorgeous couple, and gorgeous locations. These two have an honesty in their hearts that will be with them for the rest of their lives. Congratulations to Joan and Brad!

This past weekend I was able to travel outside to a remote location north of Calgary to spend some time with this amazing couple. Despite the down pour and snow that most of Alberta was subjected to, we were able to latch on to the calm after the storm. The clouds parted and the sun snuck out for a little while as we made our way into the back country. These two made the evening delightful with their easy going personalities.  Thank you Joan and Brad for a wonderful evening!
