ROWLEY, ALBERTA WEDDING | STEPHANIE & GARRETT

badlands wedding.jpg

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!

KANANASKIS ENGAGEMENT | AUDREY & RYAN

I met Audrey and Ryan in the mountains of Kananaskis Country for their engagement session. We were so fortunate to catch such beautiful golden light and a perfect autumn day. They plan to marry next year in Audrey's home province of Quebec, but since they met and fell in love in Alberta, they felt it was only fitting to have portraits taken here to mark their engagement. It was the first time they'd been photographed as a couple, and also their first experience doing a professional shoot. I always feel lucky and grateful to take portraits of people who are new to being in front of the camera, as it's my honour and privilege to make them feel cozy and confident. As you'll see, they are both highly photogenic and looked completely natural and comfortable being photographed. They let their love shine through any apprehension they may have felt. In other words, we had a fabulous time!

Audrey and Ryan, I wish you so much happiness and all the best as you plan your beautiful wedding in Quebec City. I know it will be spectacular! Special thanks to Gina for sending these sweethearts my way.
