Darcy & Miranda’s Bragg Creek Maternity Session

Red Bloom Photography

I always get asked if I shoot maternity sessions and my answer is always heck yes I do.

I love shooting maternity sessions and I love them more when they are my friends. There is

that extra connection and that extra excitement. And on top of that it is even more exciting

when the client is always a photographer cause when another creative hires you it is a huge

huge compliment (patting myself on the back right now). Miranda and I have been friends now

for a few years after meeting when she second shot for me. And you know what is actually so

random?  Her and my sister actually followed each other on instagram before Miranda ever

second shot for me or before we knew each other. And now 3 years later Miranda and I are

friends and her and my sister bond over dogs and having babies close in age.  I just

love connections. I also had the privilege of capturing their cutie son Weston in their home and

I will be blogging that session…well sometime ha ha.

Mike & Stephanie’s Fish Creek Park Engagement Session

Red Bloom Photography

Packing my bags to get ready to shoot their wedding this weekend so I figured it was time

to blog their gorgeous golden light engagement session!! I first met these two way back in

December 2013 when we were in Mexico together for Stephanie’s sisters wedding.  Stephanie

actually booked her and Mike a mini photoshoot on the beach with me so their engagement

session was my second time shooting them…wait I lied. Not my second time, my third time

cause Stephanie and her sister Jenn did sister session for their parents and they brought

along their partners and dogs. And while we are keeping score I have photographed

Stephanie a few times without Mike cause she crashed both of her sisters maternity

sessions ha ha.  But I am not complaining though cause I adore getting to shoot my

clients over and over again.

And now a few words from these two…

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day? 

  • This will sound super cliche but I just can’t wait to marry my best friend. Mike and I have been
  • together for 8 years now and we are super excited for this new chapter of our lives.

What’s one part or decision about wedding planning that Is easier then you

thought and one part that Is harder then you thought?

  • Picking my wedding dress was actually easier then I thought it would be! I had a dress that I tried

to Pin on my Pinterest board like 5 times! And it didn’t matter what dress I tried on I kept going

back to that dress. I finally got to try it on and knew instantly that it was my dress!!

  • The hardest thing about wedding planning was definitely the guest list. We wanted a smallish wedding

and the number we came up with was actually was pretty close to our venues capacity. But once

we started making a list of everyone we love and the people we wanted to share our day with,

we realized that some tough decisions had to be made.

What’s your favorite beverage or food to bring home and surprise your each other with?

Her: I wouldn’t say I bring it home but I usually will surprise her with a coffee from

Tim Hortons or a Booster Juice at work.

-Mike

Him: Mike really likes to go to our neighborhood pub for dinner. So it’s not really a surprise

but he likes it when I call him to meet me at the pub after I get off work.

-Steph

What is your guys idea of a perfect day together? 

  • Mike works out of town a lot so when he is home we try to always have a date day!

This usually consists of hanging out with our dogs and then dinner and a movie!

And now a few of my favorite images from their light and love filled session

Scott & Jade’s Rimrock Hotel Wedding

Red Bloom Photography

I don’t  like to pick favorite weddings or couples but I can say one thing about this wedding…

without doubt this is by far the wedding that I have laughed the most at. Like my guts and

my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much.  I think it is a huge skill for the speakers and

the MC of a wedding to be able to make the jokes funny to everyone there and as a

stranger to these two and their friends I was laughing like crazy at the jokes. I wish I

had video of the speeches so I could listen all over again cause they were hilarious.  But the

day didn’t start out all jokes it actually started out so laid back and chill! These two are so

welcoming and their wedding parties were so friendly from the moment I walked in . Jade’s

girls were so loving and supportive and excited for their girl to get married and Scott’s guys

were like his personal glam squad (see the photos below). Scott & Jade got married at the

Rimrock Hotel and after some social time on the terrace we headed off into smokey Banff

for their photos.  Sadly the smoke had covered the mountains but as I say this is the

story of their day and these two embraced it and nothing could wipe the smiles off their faces.

Well I take that back, Scott’s rowdy groomsmen might have taken away his smile for a few

moments but they would instantly have him cracking up again 2 seconds later. And Jade’s

girls were a breeze to work with, they looked gorgeous in their yellow gowns and they had

so much fun during photos and we ended the bridemaids photos with a self posed image

that is too funny(again see below).  I could go on and on about their day and their kind,

laid back personalities to the total romance between these two and right until the nose

scrunching, gut aching, eyes watering laughs that filled their reception hall! But instead of

blabbing and blabbing I will let their photos tell their story =)

Mazin & Alyssa’s Valley Ridge Golf Club Wedding

Red Bloom Photography

Just sitting here in absolute awe of how beautiful and connected this day way. One thing I love

about editing and blogging weddings is reliving the story while I am doing it. And my hope

is that when my couples get their blogs and their galleries that they feel it is a story of their day

and that the photos show more then the big moments but also those little moments that help

piece together their day and help them remember it and relive it.  Mazin & Alyssa got married

on August 11th and it was one very hot and very beautiful day. Their wedding was very intimate

and very heartfelt. You could feel how close they were with all their guests and you heard about

how close they are in all the speeches.  They laughed together, the cried together and it was

amazing! These two got married at Valley Ridge and it is one of my favorite golf courses to shoot at.

I have shot here twice before and have loved it all three times now.  They also used one of my

favorite commissioners, makeup artists and florists so it was like a treat of a day for me ha ha.

And we have to talk about Alyssa’s stunning dress…she tried on 127 to find it and I would say it

was worth the search cause it is absolutely stunning. Her gorgeous dress with the pink bridesmaids

dresses and the men in navy made for one heck of a stylish wedding party!

My relationship with these two actually goes back quite a long time in photographer years as

I did their engagement photos in 2014. Fast forward to early 2016 and they booked me for their

wedding and I was jumping for joy! Mazin & Alyssa’s wedding story is below but first here
are some words from the newly weds.

How did you guys meet ? 
Mazin and I met during our 3rd year of university. We were in the Bachelor of Education cohort together
so our course schedule was the same. We spent every day together for 2 years.

Please share the proposal story with us?
Mazin was never a fan of getting his photo taken, however, having a professional couples photo shoot
was something I always wanted to do together. During a visit to Calgary in May of 2014, he surprised
me with a trip to Lake Louise. During our trip he had another surprise planned for me – a couples
photo shoot! While the photographer was shooting, Mazin got down on one knee and asked
me to marry him! It was all caught on camera with the most beautiful background scenery.
Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride: Of all the incredible moments from our wedding, the most memorable was
when I was walking down the aisle, my parents at my side, walking towards Mazin. Seeing how handsome
he looked in his suit and the tears that filled his eyes is a moment I will remember for a lifetime.
Groom: Alyssa walking down the aisle towards me, she looked so beautiful.

She looked stunning in her dress and made the most beautiful bride.

Tell me about the special aspects of your day that made it unique to you two?

Everything about our day was personalized, from the edible images of us on our
wedding favours, the large wooden F guestbook, to the personalized notepads.
I wanted the day to be all about Mazin and I.
Prior to getting married, I never fully understood the phrase, “Something old, something new, something
borrowed, something blue”. My mom filled me in and ensured I had all four covered. My dress
and veil was my something new, the bow on my garter was my something blue, my something borrowed was
my grandmothers pearl necklace given to her many years ago from my late grandfather, and my something old was
my undies – they are my comfortable pair, I couldn’t resist – it’s all about comfort baby 😉
Besides making the choice to marry each other, what was the easiest decision you made
for your wedding? What made it so easy? 
As mentioned, many times throughout our wedding day, I am VERY indecisive so all decisions
required a lot of thought. However, having my mom make and decorate our wedding cake was the
easiest decision we made. My mom has been decorating cakes for 30 years and is incredibly talented.
She designed a cake that completely represented my look – ivory, lace and pearls. She did an
incredible job – I didn’t expect anything less.
What was the most difficult, time comsuming choice that you made for your wedding day?
And advice to couples on this?
WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING!!! I spent months traveling around Calgary looking for the perfect
dress. My mom and I went to nearly every dress shop in the city. After trying on 127 dresses, I
FINALLY said yes to the dress!! It was all worth it and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.
My advice for future brides out on their dress hunt – be patient and never settle! Your dress is out there!
Advice to couples planning their wedding day?  *
Our advice to those planning a wedding – take your time and enjoy the process. Be patient when
looking for vendors and venues – read reviews and ask others for advice. Try to have fun with it and don’t stress all
the small details! Wedding planning withdrawals is a real thing 😉

Kimberley Wedding Photographer 

Taylor & Rachel’s Cherry Creek Estate Wedding

Red Bloom Photography

Cranbrook Wedding Photographer 

As a wedding photographer there are certain wedding venues on my bucket list

of wedding venues and Cherry Creek Estate was at the very top of that list for localish

to me venues!  So when Taylor and Rachel asked me to photographer their Cherry

Creek Estate Wedding I lost my mind with excitement. In saying this, I should mention it

and I really mean it that every single wedding I shoot is important to me and having an amazing

is just a cherry on top of the amazing sunday that is your wedding day!  I first met these two when

they won one of my session giveaways. At the time they were just dating and we did their couples

in love session in Fish Creek Park. Just a few short months later Rachel emailed me with the news

that Taylor had proposed! We actually did their engagement photos in the winter in Kananaskis at these

two are total adventurers and the mountains is where they love to be. You can see some of their

engagement photos here -> Taylor & Rachel’s Upper Lakes Kananaskis Engagement Session

One thing I love about Cherry Creek Estate is that they had the entire property for the weekend

so it was so great to get to explore the property and bounce back and forth between Taylor & Rachel

as they prepared for the day.  I really could go on and on about their day but I will let the images

tell their story and the captions between some of their images. Before we get to their

wedding story here are few words from the newlyweds!

How did you guys meet ? 
We met at a bar haha. Super exciting right? I thought he was super cute and apparently stared at him a

bit too long because he came over and as soon as he introduced himself and smiled – I knew

I was in trouble. We shared a couple drinks, talked about hockey, our shared love for the

mountains, and the rest is history.

Please share the proposal story with us? 
Taylor was home for the week from work and suggested super causally that we should do a hike

that we’ve both been wanting to do for forever, Prairie Mountain. We packed up ourselves & our dog, printed

off directions and headed out for our hike. When we got to the trailhead, there were a bunch of different

routes and we really weren’t sure which one was the Prairie Mountain trail, so we picked the one that

sounded the closest – Prairie Creek – hoping it would meet up with the correct trail. Haha nope. During the hike, we were

both a bit confused but enjoyed it nonetheless! When we got to this beautiful clearing on the side of the mountain,

there was nobody else there and I walked over to the edge to enjoy the view. As I turned around to call

Tay over, I found him on one knee in front of me holding out the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen.

I literally almost fell off the cliff haha. It was so perfect and I had no idea – plus it was super special that he proposed on

July 22 and 2:22pm and we got married exactly one year later on July 22.

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride: There were so many amazing moments – but the most memorable was being flown up to
Fisher Mountain and being literally on top of the world enjoying our first sunset as husband & wife.
Groom: Same as my wife – I gotta agree with her!

Tell me about the special aspects of your day that made it unique to you two?

Gosh, there were so many special details that we were lucky enough to incorporate into our day. My
wedding dress was custom made by my Great Aunt Debbie (who also made my mom’s wedding dress) so
it was such an amazing experience to design my dream dress with her. Taylor’s wedding band
was also custom made by a gentleman out of BC that used local BC wood for the inside of his ring. We made all
of our decorations with wood from Taylor’s cabin & my Great Uncle’s Buffalo Farm so it means so much to us
that we got to create such meaningful & beautiful decor and get to keep a piece of our family forever. We were
also lucky enough to take a helicopter up to Fisher Peak and watch the sun set on top of the world surrounded
by the Purcell Mountains. Everybody says your wedding day goes by so fast and you never have time to
enjoy the day which is why having an hour to ourselves on top of a mountain was so important to
us – we got to really enjoy being in the moment of our wedding day!
Advice to couples planning their wedding day?
Make sure you plan something on your wedding day that is super special to just the both
of you; enjoyed by just the both of you. By taking some time out of the day to do something that
is special just to the both of you will give some time for the whole day to sink in – especially since it
really does go by in a blur!
And now here is Taylor & Rachel’s Wedding Story

cranbrook-wedding-photographer, cherry creek estate weddingcranbrook-wedding-photographer, cherry creek estate weddingThis is quite typical on a wedding day that a groomsmen ties multiple guys ties and then hands them off as not everyone knows how to tie a tie.cranbrook-wedding-photographer, cherry creek estate weddingDad popped in to help Taylor with his suit jacket.cranbrook-wedding-photographer, cherry creek estate weddingIf you follow me on instagram you might have seen that their used to be a bridemaid in this photo.

Calgary Wedding Photographers

Nick & Sarah’s Water Valley Wedding

Red Bloom Photography

So happy to share another beautiful wedding with another one of my amazing couples.

Nick & Sarah had a intimate wedding at one of the cutest little venues in the Calgary

area. They chose Water Valley Church to host their closest friends and family for their

intimate outdoor wedding.  This venue is so absolutely perfect for an intimate wedding.

Sarah got ready in the cutest little Gazebo that is on the property and after doing a private

first look with Nick they had their ceremony in this quaint church. Afterwards we header out

on this scorcher of a day for photos…not gonna lie this was one of the hottest days

that I have shot on. I was melting ha ha. We tried to find some shade for a bit of a break from the

heat but when that wasn’t enough I gave them  a mini break to cool down in the truck.  I really

wanted to go to the River for some photos so we want to the campground where they had

parked their own trailer to find some water. But of course we had the same idea as every other

person in Water Valley that day and the river was packed. But this adventurous couple

said heck yes to beating our way off the beaten path and through the bush to get to a more

private part of the river and it was so worth it.  The light was beautiful and there was a ever

so slight breeze off the water.

~ Some words from the Bride & Groom ~

Please share the proposal story with us? 

We were on our way to have our annual birthday celebration in Banff (his birthday is December 14th and mine is the 18th)

and we had some time to kill before we could check into our hotel so we decided to drive around the

Minnewanka Loop. We stopped at one of our favorite spots, Johnson Lake, it was -30 out that day and

Nick insisted we had to get out of the vehicle to take some pictures. I reluctantly agreed to get

out and walk down for some pictures since it was so cold out! We snapped a few pictures and the next

thing I know Nick was down on one knee with the ring and asked me to marry him! The rest of the day we

were on cloud nine and had the best time celebrating in Banff!

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

(How cute they answered the same)

Bride – the first look

Groom – the first look

It was so amazing getting to see each other before the ceremony and have that special moment together.

We think it took a lot of the nerves away too.

When you look back on your day, how would you describe it in 1-2 sentences to people who

ask about your wedding? 

It was so intimate! Exactly how we wanted our special day to be. We celebrated with a small group

of people who we love and know us best.

What was the easiest vendor or wedding related decision you made for your wedding day?

and why was it so easy?

(Oh man, I am totally tearing up at their answer. Thank you Sarah & Nick for choosing and trusting me)

There are so many photographers out there that it can be overwhelming to start. We knew the style of

photography we wanted and when we found Monica we knew it would be the perfect fit! After meeting

her for our engagement shoot we were even more assured we made the right decision. She is an amazing photographer,

she puts you at ease and makes you feel totally comfortable!

What was the hardest decision you made for your wedding day? what made it so harder then the others?

Trying to find a perfect venue for the intimate wedding we wanted was difficult. We went back and

forth on where and when we wanted to do it. Then we stumbled upon the Water Valley Church Event Centre

online, we went out to see it shortly after and fell in love. With so many options out there and limited date

availability choosing a venue can be difficult but we couldn’t be happier with our decision!

Advice to couples planning their initmate wedding day? 

No matter what do what will make you two happy! This is your day and it’s something you’ll

always look back on and remember. Don’t worry about other people and their expectations,

worry about what will make your day special and memorable!

And now here is Nick & Sarah’s Wedding Story

B & J Reader Rock Garden Wedding

Calgary Wedding Photographers

Red Bloom Photography

I feel like I can constantly write about how amazing my couples are and how lucky

I am to be part of their day. I often feel like I need to be pinched when I am at work

shooting a wedding and Im like how is this my job it is amazing!  I haven’t always been a photographer

and I haven’t always wanted to be one.  The thought never crossed my mind until it did and when

it did it was like an epiphany, I was like this is it, this is what I want to do. I actually went

to University for 6 years and have two degrees but that career that I trained for never felt

like the right fit for me so after a brief time in it I took a break and during that break I

planned my own wedding and that is how I feel in love with wedding photography and I haven’t

looked back since and wondered what if. The longer I do photography and the more that I build

my company and my style the more that I feel my couples really connect to it. When I started and

my work was inconsistent and I was inexperienced I had couples sending pinterest lists like

5 pages long. Not anymore, it is quite the opposite they say we trust you and love your style. 

And that is exactly how you should feel when you hire your wedding photographer.  Brandon &

Jacqueline were like this and they were so laid back and trusting and it made capturing their

wedding so easy. Well it wasn’t without hiccups on my end(you will read about those below).

I first met Brandon on the wedding day cause we didn’t do an engagement session and he was welcoming

and had everything ready at their house for groom prep. He read my tips that I sent for morning of

and it made it super easy for me to capture him and the boys that morning.  And Jacqueline and her

bridemaids were the same, all prepared, ready for photos. Just so easy and laid back. It was just

perfect….except those hiccups. So first of all I got locked out of the parking garage downtown where my

car was but after a phone call I got let back in and then the elevator at the Palliser just didn’t come. I waited

about ten minutes and with a giant suitcase of equipment walking up to the 11th floor was not an option.

Even though I had these little things happen, everything went so perfect in the morning. And it is because

both the bride & the groom were so organized and had read my prep tips for the day.

And the biggest hiccup…It took me 35 minutes to drive 11 blocks downtown due to road construction.

Calgary roads are no joke in the summer, anyone else feel like they do all the road construction in

one month ha ha. Geez. So honestly, I was late for the ceremony…the first time in over 125 wedding.

But I always have emergency contacts for day of so I phoned the best man, let me know and they

of course waited for me. I was only 5 minutes late so it wasn’t that bad and these things can happen, I am

so lucky that this is a first for me and I am happy that i was prepared with numbers to call.

After that the whole day went so smoothly that I could not have asked for a better couple or a better

day. We did their photos at Reader Rock Garden which is where the ceremony was and then we travelled

to Sundance Lake Residents Association for the reception and this is actually the third wedding

that I have shot there so I am quite familiar with it. I think the highlight of my day was taking them

out for sunset photos and getting the most unreal light ever! Oh just obsessed with the light.

Okay enough talking and now time for the photos!

Here is Brandon & Jacqueline’s Wedding Story…

calgary wedding photographers, reader rock garden weddingThis is exactly what I am talking about when I said Brandon was prepared for me. He had the room with the most light cleaned and organized and even

had everyones suits drapped over the chairs.calgary wedding photographers, reader rock garden weddingI just love this idea for gifts. Brandon got each of his guys a personalized watch an a imported beer to match their personality/relationship. So thoughtful

and unique and the guys loved it.calgary wedding photographers, reader rock garden weddingcalgary wedding photographers, reader rock garden weddingAnd the most beautiful bridal prep suite at Hotel Palliser.

Ryan & Stephanie’s Red Deer Lake Wedding

With White Copper Wedding

  Red Bloom Photography

Calgary Wedding Photographers

James Bond theme grooms attire, Sparkly Kate Spade Keds and one of the most

beautiful wedding dresses that I have ever photographed are what this blog post

is all about! Ryan & Stephanie planned their beautiful wedding to take place

at Red Deer Lake Community Hall. And I will be honest when they first mentioned their

venue I assumed it was out of town as I had never heard of it. But nope it is just south

of the city close to Spruce Meadows.  And right near the hall their is this cute little

vintage school house where we did a few photos as well. What I love about this venue is it

is nice and spacious and I adore the stage for the wedding party to sit on so the guests

get a good view for them and also the close proximity to the little school house and

the park are added bonuses for images.  I started my day with the girls and this wedding

is my only wedding of the year with a second shooter and she started her day with the boys.

We had some beautiful weather for the day and I was even able to sneak them out during the

reception for a few photos just as the sun had peaked below some clouds.

If you would like to peek at their fall engagement session you can find it here

Ryan & Stephanie’s Griffith Woods Engagement Session

Before I share some images from their day here are a few words from the Bride & Groom

How did you guys meet ?
We met through some mutual friends- on Christmas Day actually! The Best Christmas Gift a girl could ask for I’d say!!

Please share the proposal story with us? 

Ryan took me to Newfoundland where his mom’s family is from to meet his extended family there. He took me on a
day of sight seeing to many of beautiful places out there (It was my first time to the East Coast) We started
the day at Cabot Tower followed by the beautiful drive to Cape Spear where the most eastern point in North America is.
We then proceeded to Fort Amherst where he popped the question over- looking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.
It was the most perfect and simple moment I could have ever asked for. By the end of that trip I ordered my second…I guess
now third favourite piece of jewelry, a bracelet with the coordinates of Fort Amherst to always remember the spot!

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride: First Dance as husband and wife- the time that seemed like it was just us, was so special.
Then we started to relax and enjoy the rest of the evening with our family and friends.
Groom: All of it! In the end I have my wife and that is all I could ask for!

Tell me about the special aspects of your day that made it unique to you two? 

– Ryan and I new we were meant to be when we found out we both had a love for James Bond!

our entire wedding had small pieces of James Bond spread throughout! Ryan’s Tux, the table
numbers… right down to the Photo Booth print layout! it was a great touch that was totally us!
– Did you see my shoes! they were totally me and so fun with my dress!

Advice to couples planning their wedding day? 

– Be decisive in choosing! Once your have made a choice STOP LOOKING! The options of

what you could have done will honestly drive you crazy!
– make it about you! It is your wedding, that you have to remember so choose what you want!
And now here is Ryan & Stephanie’s Wedding Story
