EDMONTON GRAD PORTRAITS: MORGAN & ECLIPSE

2019-06-19_0033.jpg

For Part I of Morgan’s grad portraits, we ventured to the beautiful farm where she boards her gorgeous and majestic Andalusian horse, Eclipse. Morgan is an accomplished equestrian so we thought it would be perfect to document the special relationship she shares with him. This was a dream shoot for me. What a joy to watch them ride together.

I am so excited to announce my newest special: CHALET CHIC BOUDOIR!

Inspired by 70s ski chalet culture, this series of images will be photographed in my very own home, one room of which was lovingly decorated in the late 70s by previous owners and still retains the original cozy, vintage charm.

Warm cedar walls, a fireplace filled with flickering candles, and knitted blankets to wrap yourself in. Come cuddle up and feel both cozy and glamourous as we create beautiful portraits together.

Full makeup and hair will be provided by Kaitlin from Upstairs Glamour with Blush Artistry to help you feel extra polished, and you’ll receive a styling guide beforehand to help you choose the perfect outfits to bring along.

Show a little skin, or flaunt a lot. Be as modest or bold as you like. I’ll be here to cheer you on and help you feel totally fabulous. The pictures will be an exquisite souvenir of how lovely you feel.

ROWLEY, ALBERTA WEDDING | STEPHANIE & GARRETT

Stephanie and Garrett got married in a ghost town! I mean, can you imagine a cooler location? Rowley, Alberta is a “hamlet populated by nine humans and 15 cats [that] stays alive by partying” according to The Star. Oh, and there was one hell of a party on this day! Probably the wildest one I’ve photographed. It was a pleasure from start to finish. I will let the images show you all the beauty, love and fun of Steph and Garrett’s amazing day in the badlands of Alberta.

We kicked off the photography fun with a first look and wedding party portraits at the Drumheller Amphitheatre. It was spectacular.

After finishing our portraits, we all travelled north to Rowley, where the fun really began!

The party kicked off with a ceremony in the original United Church, followed by cocktail hour at the town’s saloon, dinner under a big white tent, and dancing under the stars.

Steph and Garrett, I adore you guys! Wishing you all the happiness in the world!
