Dawn & Sanjeet: engagement session

I wanted to quickly put up some pics of an engagement session that I did with Dawn and Sanjeet.  Their wedding is coming up quick and I’m super excited for this one.  These two are just the most ‘normal’ people ever.  When I’ve talked with them on the phone, they talk to me as though I’m a good friend.  No business language, no pretense, no “lets get down to brass tacks”.  It’s more like “hey dude, It’s Sanj.  What’s happenin’?”.  Jeah!

I’m looking forward to your wedding guys, its gonna be a b-b-b-blast!!  And with Terra from Inspired Occasions Wedding Planning doing your planning, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the day without any worries :)

Nose Hill Wedding Photography | Dominique & Mike

 I met Dom and Mike in January as they were prepping for their April wedding and I was honored and excited to have been chosen as their wedding photographer. 

These two were truly meant to be and  I couldn’t be more excited and happy for them.  They are two of the most relaxed, fun and trusting couples I’ve met in a while and they entrusted me to capture their day, even when they weren’t sure what I was doing ;).  In Dominique’s own words “I’m not sure if this will look good in a photo”.  When she saw the photos later on that evening she beamed with joy and renegged on her previous statement and affirmed that “yeah, they look pretty damn good”.  I love knowing that at the end of the day, the bride and groom will get the chance to relive their big day over and over again.  Not only did they trust their wedding photographer, but they’ve put into each other the trust of each other’s heart, soul and eyes.  Every time Dominique and Mike would look at each other during the day, an instant smile would spread across their faces.  They are true happiness.

Hannah & Daniel: engagement session

Hannah and Daniel were one of the most lively and dare I say…rambunctious couples I’d ever photographed.  Actually, that was more Daniel than Hannah ;)

One of the greatest challenges that a photographer will have is to please a naturally artistic client.  But I love challenges, and when the architect and art gallery curator asked me to take their photos I saw this as an opportunity to expand, learn, grow and take it to the next level.  We had some very specific locations in mind as Daniel was very interested in incorporating the more architecturally interesting building around Calgary, as well as those buildings that he had a hand in envisioning and developing.  I learned so much from our session, not only about the fabulous couple but also about the fabulous city of Calgary.  Thank you for the lesson Hannah and Daniel!

You two made me laugh the entire time and on several occasions I had to hold my breath just to keep the camera from shaking!  You two are hilarious!!

I can’t wait for your wedding as I know that it will be incredibly unique and fun!

Geneil & Trevor: engagement session

Geneil & Trevor – I don’t know what else to say except you two brung it!  Yeah, yeah…bad grammar I know.  But seriously?!  Words escape me!  I twittered this same sentiment but it worked… “this engagement session brought to you by the letter C – Cozy, Comforting, Contagiously sweet and Cool”.  Yep, it still applies.  And get this!  With some gentle persuasion Trevor gained us access to the private cellar in Divino’s – one of their favourite eateries in town.  After almost 2 hours of cellar dwelling, we made our way outside just in time to catch the beautiful golden sun just before it set.  Fittingly, it provided the perfect end to an amazing engagement session.  Geneil and Trevor were so comfortable in each other’s arms that I did very little except for catch the moments that they created – I got to capture these moments in a true photojournalist style.  They even had an audience who were taking their pictures over my shoulders!  How rad is that?!

A Family Day

A number of weeks ago I was given the privilege to photograph this fun and fabulous family on an early Saturday morning.  As always, with larger groups you just never really know what to expect, they gifted my giving me the best thing a photographer could ask for…and that was an easy and instant chemistry between the family members!  There were lots of laughs, tickles, nuggies and poking the entire morning!  Easy pickins!  They were fabulous!!

Here are a couple of sneakers for you…
