Christina & Geoff: An American Wedding in Canada-land

This wedding was a glamorous one from start to finish, and I was fortunate to get to shoot this one alongside my friend Paul from PMG Image – fortunately, he didn’t ask me to hold his lights or reflectors – he basically said “shoot it the way you want to”.  And shoot I did…there’s one thing I love about second shooting, and that is, no responsibility!  As odd as it sounds – it allows me to focus on trying a new and different technique, one that I may not have otherwise tried on my own, and not have to worry about it going wrong since I’ll know that a pro like Paul is going to get the shot.

If you’re an NFL fan, then you may recognize the groom, Geoff Hangartner as the starting Guard for the Carolina Panthers.  This dude one is one bear of a man.  I think his official statistics have him at 6’5″ and over 300lbs.   Have you ever tried to make a bear laugh for photos?  It’s as intimidating as it sounds.

The bride. Christina. Oh my the bride…are there words to describe how beautiful of a person she really is?  You know when people talk about a smile that lights of the room?  They were talking about Christina, only hers doesn’t light up a room.  It lights up the entire Banff Springs Hotel.  She looked absolutely jaw-dropping in her Lazaro gown and it couldn’t have been a better dress for her (she had considered a Pnina Tornai but chose to go with the less audacious and less revealing Lazaro….a perfect choice!).

Christina and Geoff: Fairmont Banff Springs Wedding

Last weekend I tagged along with PMG Image and we created some images for the beautiful Christina and the behemoth of a man called Geoff.  Here’s one fun fashion inspired image of Christina (posted with permission from PMG).  Brides, I know you’re checking out that dress and saying…I LOVE HER DRESS, WHO IS THE DESIGNER!??!  It’s a Lazaro…gorgeous isn’t it!  As beautiful as Christina’s smile.

Alex & Marc: Lake Louise Wedding Photographer

A couple of weekends ago I photographed the beautiful wedding of Alex and Marc at the Chateau Lake Louise.  We only met a few days before their wedding to shoot their engagement photos which gave us a chance to get to know each other just a bit better before the wedding… the funny thing is, is that everything flowed so smoothly that day that it felt like I had known these two for more than a few days!  Kinda rad when things work out that way.

One of the most touching moments of the day was watching the girls “oooohh” and “ahhhh” over Alex and Marc’s adorable 7 week old baby girl.  She almost stole the show that day, and why not…she was crazy cute!   Alex and Marc, thank you for opening up your day to me and allowing me and my assistant David to truly document all the events that took place, including the special baptism that took place at the same time as the ceremony.  I hope the photos you see below remind you of your wedding day.   There’s no doubt that you two had a blast!!   I’m excited to get started on designed your album :)

Their wedding was a beautiful affair planned and designed by the amazing wedding planner, Sonia of Enriched Events.  The wonderful thing about a venue as gorgeous as the Chateau Lake Louise is that you really don’t need a lot to dress up their ballrooms, but every little touch that was added, enhanced the beautiful surroundings of being in a luxurious room surrounding by the majestic Rocky Mountains.

Congratulations Alex and Marc!  You two were amazing fun as was the rest of the fantastically outrageous wedding party! (see photobooth photos as proof haha)

Love how each bridesmaid bouquet was a different flower, and all those flowers were incorporated into the brides bouquet. Great idea!
