Today truly was an amazing day spent with Alix, Sascha and their families. First just a little back history that makes this event even more extraordinarily amazing. Back in 2013, we first met Alix’s brother when we photographed his wedding in Airdrie Alberta, and then in 2014 we photographed her other brothers wedding in Banff Alberta so of course when we found out that now Alix was getting married in 2017, we knew that we had to be there to photograph this special day. Now having spent 3 weddings with this particular family, we do really feel as if we are a part of their lovely family. From the first moment we met them back in 2013, they have welcomed us and treated us just as you would your own family. Of course now since having photographed all of their weddings, we are now close friends with the whole crew. You have to admit photographing 3 out of the 4 children’s weddings in one family is pretty cool!
Back to Alix and Sascha, no words to describe these two other than they are perfect for each other. One would definitely say that they were meant to be. When the two of them are together you can just feel the love radiating all around them. This day was quite the adventure. We started off with the getting ready photos in Airdrie, and then from there headed off to Cochrane for the Ceremony that they wanted in a particular church there with a particular special Father. After the Ceremony we photographed the family in the beautiful gardens of the Church and then from there we headed off to Kananaskis for photos of the Bride, Groom and wedding party. Previously we had spoken about where we should go for wedding photos and after the having expressed some interested with having photos in the mountains and hearing about the love these two had for the mountains, we decided that we just had to make it happen. Since we were only about 40 minutes away from beautiful Kananaskis, we figured there was no way we could Not Go there even if it meant we had to rush just a little bit. Off we went to Kananaskis for formal wedding photos and I am so glad we did because it was one of the most Beautiful Fall days one could have asked for. After finishing up with photos, we rushed back to Airdrie for the Reception which took place at Apple Creek Golf Course (another one of our favorite places)! The rest of the night we spent enjoying the amazing company of these two families. We are so honoured to have been a part of this special day and capture all of the beautiful photos we did for Alix and Sascha! We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness! Thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers!
I am absolutely in Love with Randi’s wedding dress. I seriously cannot stop looking at it. It has to be one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen! Now Dan and Randi, we have loved all of the time spent with you and your family, from family photos a few years ago to engagement session and now finally photographing this amazing once in a lifetime day, your wedding day. For a Roof Top Wedding in Calgary Alberta, Mother Nature was sure kind to us. I am not going to complain about how hot it was, because it could have been many other things, but Mother Nature was definitely looking out for us. This wedding day was like a fairytale, on the top of the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Calgary, overlooking beautiful downtown, Randi and Dan said I Do’s!!!
After our Stunning Bride, their beautiful little man definitely stole the show! He is so sweet and was so well behaved the whole day! For formal photos we went off to Princess Island Park and then followed that up with some photos on Stephen’s Avenue in downtown Calgary. Love the hustle and bustle of this street in the summer time.
The beautiful elegant reception was held at the Marriott Hotel and everything was perfect from the food to the decorations to the first dance! We are so honoured that these two chose us to capture their special day! Wishing you all of the best and an amazing life full of love and adventure together!
Today was an amazing day for Michael and Alexandra, a day that was a long time coming for the both of them to officially become husband and wife. These two have been together forever and have two absolutely gorgeous daughters who were a big part of their day. These two are both so kind and loving people and exceptional parents to their beautiful children. We are so honoured to have been part of this special day. What do you get when you mix Jamaican and Latin Families together??? ONE BIG Party!!! and that it was, so much fun with both of these families! You know when you have only met someone once or twice but from the moment you meet them, you feel as if you have known them forever and they make you feel as if you are part of the family! Well this is how it was with Michael and Alexandra’s families, both so welcoming!
The beautiful ceremony took place at DayBreak Church in Airdrie AB and then we went off to a lovely Airdrie acreage for some formal photos and lastly to the Apple Creek Golf Course for the Party! Alexandra was absolutely stunning today and Michael also looked pretty darn good! Their girls seriously the sweetest little things ever! Good Food as always at Apple Creek and an Awesome Dance Party oh and did I mention there was a lot of singing going on at this wedding! Michael’s Mom, and Sisters absolutely to die for voices, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and Michael even sang a verse or two to his lovely new bride! Got to love a musically inclined family!
We ended off the evening with some awesome night time/sparkler photos which are always a lot of fun! Wishing the two of you an absolutely amazing life together full of love and blessings!
Today was a beautiful day with Lara & Donnie, these two are so much fun and the wedding was perfect from the weather to the details. I loved the aqua/ocean colored theme, the blue and green bridesmaids dresses were beautiful and looked amazing on every single girl. The dark pink Swiss flower girl dresses were to die for. I loved the mix of Swiss and Canadian culture that was present at this wedding which was perfect because it was a little bit of both the bride and groom.
The bride was beautiful in her long lacy wedding dress, which she surprised the groom with as he was expecting a short little white dress!!! Lara looked like a princess on her special day and Donnie didn’t look to bad himself! But we all know that a wedding day is really all about the Bride lol!
The ceremony was beautiful out at the Bride’s parents acreage and the vintage red car was an awesome addition! We loved the locations we went to for formal wedding photos, first starting out at Sylvan Lake with a beautiful lighthouse, and then off to a hidden little spot out in the country where you will find the Cutest, Tiniest little Wedding Chapel and then finishing off at Lacombe Lake. We did rock the sunset session at the end of the night as well! I love it when couples give us the time we need to create beautiful, lifetime images for them! Wishing Lara & Donnie a life full of happiness and love and many children!
What an absolutely amazing night! Definitely full of all kinds of surprises and fun. We were honoured to be able to photograph Albarr and Saman’s pre-wedding celebration as well as one of their wedding celebrations here in Calgary Alberta. This I believe was their 4th wedding celebration as they had already had one in Toronto, ON.
I absolutely loved all of the beautiful colors and the gorgeous decorations of the reception room at the Civic on Third which is a quaint little location in the middle of Chinatown in downtown Calgary.
Both Albarr and Saman’s families were absolutely amazing and made us feel comfortable from the first moment we met. Both these two are so welcoming and kind and just really wonderful people to know. Saman was absolutely Stunning on her wedding day from the beautiful henna, to her gorgeous make up and extravagant bridal outfit. I do LOVE pink!!! We were honoured to have been a part of these two special celebrations, thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers.
Huge Thank you to Saman who was a serious trooper, after having worn 4 inch high heels all night, she still found it in her to push through the last 20 minutes of photography we did in the evening, downtown Calgary! Sore sore feet but definitely worth it! Big Hugs to the two of you and we wish you all the Best in your New Life Together!
The BIG DAY is finally here after a full year of planning all of the fine details of this special day, it has now all come together. What a day it was, so much love and joy in the air! The love between Don & Ashley is something absolutely amazing. These two share a love that will last a lifetime!
Everything was perfect from the First look with Ashley and her Dad to the First Look with Ashley and Don, to the Beautiful Garden Ceremony at Readers Rock Garden in Calgary Alberta. I will admit it was a HOT day about 29 degrees Celsius sitting in that hot sun but we will take that over rain. Photos were done at the Reader Rock Garden which is just gorgeous, I don’t know about you, but I love flowers, speaking of flowers, there may have been a little mishap on the wedding day, that being the bouquets accidentally getting left at the house, but no fret, after a few quick phone calls, the flowers showed up!
The final part of the day was celebrated at the Silver Springs Golf and Country Club in Calgary AB, which was an excellent location for a wedding reception. Great food, great service and a super cute dance floor! Loved that it was separate from the dining room! We were even able to sneak out later on in the evening to do a few night time photos with Ashley and Don before the night was over!
Thanks again for choosing us as your wedding photographers! We hope and pray that the two of you will have many many many years to reminisce over your beautiful day!
From the moment we met these two, we just knew the 4 of us were a perfect match. We are so honoured that they chose us to capture and document these once in a life time, special moments in their lives. The chemistry and connection between Ashley and Don is breathtaking, these two are perfect for each other and they are the most kind, generous and loving two people you will ever meet. We did have the job of meeting them a few years ago when we photographed Ashley’s brothers wedding and since then, we have almost felt like a part of their family!
Ashley was absolutely stunning with her red lips and this gorgeous red dress that she wore for the Tea Ceremony the day before their wedding. Don also looked pretty good himself in his traditional clothing. This day was so special and we are thrilled to have been a part of this special day!
When you get married in April in Calgary, you never know what you are going to get for weather! It could be Snowing, Raining, or Hot and Sunny lol… But if you have a good sense of humour and you know how to just go with the flow then getting married in April is what we call an Adventure!
Today for Steve and Janae was absolutely beautiful! Of course it would have been beautiful regardless of the weather, but somehow we lucked out and Mother Nature decided to be kind to us. We were honoured that these two chose us as their wedding photographers and we hope we killed it on their day! Of course Canyon Meadows Golf Course is always an amazing location, with awesome food and excellent service.
Janae and Steve are such a sweet couple and you can just see how much they love each other when they are together. We loved everything about their wedding, down to all of the little details that Janae took so much care an attention planning. Wishing these two many many many amazing years together!
