It’s late.
And I’m excited about these two images from Leyanna and Franco’s wedding.

FIRST LOOK: leyanna+franco, married

Yesterday, I shot one of the most exquisite weddings I am sure Edmonton has ever hosted. The details of this day left me awstruck, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending my time with Leyanna and Franco and their equally wonderful family and friends. I had the privilege of taking their engagement photos on a very snowy weekend this past winter, and the weather on their wedding day therefore couldn’t have offered a better contrast.

Thank you so much, Leyanna and Franco. I truly enjoyed celebrating with you, and thought the day was entirely beautiful.
Look for a full blog post in a few weeks, everyone.

PERSONAL: introducing gatsby

On Saturday, my life got a whole lot cuter.
This is Gatsby, my first real pet. :)

I’ve wanted a cat for quite some time now, and was really happy to come across Teresa, a lovely lady in Calgary who breeds beautiful Birmans. Here are the first of, what I’m sure will be many, pictures of the little guy. Enjoy!

ENGAGED: chelsie+eric

On the most gorgeous spring evening, I got to spend time photographing two very dear friends of mine, in commemoration of their recent engagement. I have known both Chelsie and Eric for years now, have very much enjoyed watching their relationship develop, and am honoured and excited to be a part of their wedding party in August. This is a stellar couple, if there ever was one. I am so happy for you both, Chels and Eric, and am sincerely grateful to have you in my life.

Happy Tuesday evening, everyone.

JAYSON+CHELSEA: married

Over the May long weekend, I photographed Jayson and Chelsea’s gorgeous spring wedding. They are a beautiful couple - in several ways, and on multiple levels - and it was fantastic to celebrate with them, amongst many other dear friends. Here are the results of that bright Sunday afternoon.

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to my favourite book store in Edmonton - Alhambra Books - for allowing us to use their space for a while. As an English major, Chelsea really wanted to include this book store in her wedding photos, and, being an English major myself, I was more than happy about this location idea. If you are looking for an outstanding selection of used books, I highly recommend you pay them a visit at 10115-81 Avenue. Thanks, Alhambra Books, for your generosity! Book lovers, unite,

CHELSIE+ERIC: first look

LISA+DAVE: married, first look

Months ago, I met with Lisa + Dave over coffee (or, in Dave’s case, a glass of milk and cookies) to get acquainted. When I left, however, I felt as though I’d already known them for quite some time. I love such encounters. I had a great time taking their engagement photos back in January, and therefore looked forward to their wedding on Friday with genuine anticipation. Thank you so much, Lisa and Dave, for asking me to document this occasion for you. It was an honour.

Here are a few previews. I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend.
Get outside, read a book, ride a bike, enjoy a sunny patio.

FIRST LOOK: jayson+chelsea

This long weekend’s wedding was beautiful. And meaningful - considering Jayson is someone I’ve known long enough to have carpooled with him to Kindergarten in the back of a wood-paneled station wagon. Thanks for such a lovely day, you two. 

Here’s a preview.

FIRST LOOK: justina+jason

Tonight was full of laughter, friends, good coffee, spring colours, and golden light. In short: just wonderful.

Justina and Jason, thanks for such a lovely evening. It was an honour to take these for you, and a huge congratulations on your recent marriage! Justina is an incredible artist here in Edmonton, and I encourage you to take a look at her beautiful portfolio and join her Facebook page. I cannot wait to own a Justina Smith original in the near future.

MUSIC: the elevation room

On April 13th, Edmonton gained a very needed, fantastic new music venue: The Elevation Room. Located in the basement of Transcend Coffee’s Jasper Avenue location, the venue will host music every Friday and Saturday night. I was there to photograph the grand opening, and am very excited about attending future concerts, while sipping on my favourite beverages in YEG. What a great evening!
