Anthony & Mary’s Fish Creek Park Engagement Session

Red Bloom Photography

I just adore this dreamy session with warm golden summer light and these too and their

big smiles and amazing connection! My style pulls towards the more intimate, connected

poses and images but these two are so much fun together that we were laughing

until our cheeks hurt. I actually didn’t include alot of the laughing ones just to

show variety from their session but we laughed and we adventured. We took off our

shoes and walked through the river and it was an amazing adventure session! I shot their

mountain wedding in September and it was such a beautiful intimate day! I will try and get it on

the blog soon as well! Now here is Anthony & Mary’s Fish Creek Park engagement session.

Calgary Lifestyle Newborn Photographer 

Blake’s In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Red Bloom Photography

I have so much to say about this session but I will try and keep it short and sweet and

get to the super cute photos! Matt & Michelle are my wedding clients and I photographed

their gorgeous destination wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana in 2014 and also

shot their engagement photos, rock the dress, Michelle’s boudoir and their maternity photos.

But when Blake entered this world I was too far away to shoot their newborn photos as

they live in Fort McMurray. They found a local photographer to do posed studio images

of them and Blake and they are beautiful. And although Matt & Michelle loved the images,

Michelle just couldn’t get it out of her mind that she wanted photos of the three of them

in their home and she asked me if I would come there for their session. I of course said yes

and they instantly booked my flight for a day trip up there for their session and I also

did one for her sister while I was there. It is not every day that one of your favorite couples

asks you to fly to them for a session so I was deeply honored and incredibly excited to

get to meet Blake and see their gorgeous home. Blake was a bit older then when we

usually shoot lifestyle newborn sessions but I of course made the exception for these

three cause I just adore them so much!  Matt & Michelle have a stunning home with a

monochromatic color scheme and it was perfect for a lifestyle session. Their session

was right before Christmas so we shot some in from of the tree and then used their master bedroom

Blake’s cute nursery as well.  My favorite things about these photos are Blake’s awesome

hair and that there is so many with her tongue out. If you know this family you know that

when Blake was a baby she always was sticking her tongue out so I loved that

I was able to capture that. Alright enough from me, Blake’s lifestyle newborn session

is below and here is their maternity session

Kevin & Paige’s Intimate In Home Lifestyle Session

Red Bloom Photography

Two and a half years ago I did a casting call for a last minute couples session

and that is when I first met these two. Paige jumped on the casting call and emailed

me right away and volunteered her and Kev for the session. We met at a Calgary Park for

their couples session…actually and we even snuck a few photos in with their daughter Gracie.

You would never guess by looking at the photos that

Kev was suffering from a sudden bout of food poisoning. His love for Paige and their

connection shined through. Since that session Paige has become not only a good friend of mine,

but she is my personal hair stylist and her and I have worked together on a number of

photo shoots. Having the opportunity to shoot them again was even more amazing

then the first time! Since then they have expanded their family of cute little blondes

by two  more…TWINS!!  But this session was all about mom and dad and their connection.

They spent the afternoon laughing and loving in the studio and it was nothing short

of amazing! There is something so extra special about in home sessions, even when they

are done in my home studio. The intimate moments cuddling on the couch or laying on the

bed just show such a connection and raw emotion! This style of session is incredibly popular

in the states and I am really hoping they start to get as popular here. I am all for shooting in

the home and find it so personal.  Okay I will stop gushing about in home sessions now and

get to Kevin& Paige’s intimate lifestyle session!

Justin & Nadine’s Canyon Ski Resort Wedding 

Calgary Wedding Photographers

Red Bloom Photography

So very excited to share this beautiful September wedding at Canyon Ski Resort. I have always heard

that this venue is beautiful and it did not disappoint at all.  But this day was so much more then a

pretty venue it was all about family and friend connections and the crazy love these two have for

each other and the people around them. The day was full of tears right from the bride getting into her

dress to the ceremony and of course their speeches left so many in tears.  One thing that did not have

tears was Nadine’s first look with her dad cause he saw her and then immediately took a selfie with her which

I guess is a thing he does and it was so great! Nadine touches on what happened after their first look below.

I was going to write a lot about their day but they put everything so beautifully below. Please take a

minute to read about how sentimental and special their day was to them.

Here are some words from the newlyweds ...

How did you guys meet?
Nadine – “I went to a mechanic shop to get my car repaired, and ended up applying for the receptionist position.
When I started working there Justin didn’t talk to me until he was offered up by our bosses to start driving me
home after work. He was SO shy it took him forever, but I thought it was really sweet.”

Justin – “Yeah, our formal introduction wasn’t until a few months after she already started working
there and we grabbed coffee when I was driving her home. I was really nervous.”

Please share the proposal story with us?

Nadine – “It was my 24th birthday, and we went for this amazing dinner with my family. After dinner
Justin told them we’d meet them back at the house for drinks and that we were
going to go for a walk by the river first.
We went through a trail down to the river and then it just started pouring rain. I turned around to tell Justin
we should go and he was on one knee, in the mud, in the pouring rain telling me how I was his best friend.
He’s incredible at monumental speeches. We got back to the house completely drenched and sobbing, as
soon as we walked in the door everyone either flipped out of started bawling too haha.
It was a very memorable birthday.”
Justin – “It was nerve-racking. There’s almost a weird fear that she’s going to say no even though
you know she’s going to say yes. It’s not every day you do something like that. It’s not everyday
you know you’re going to spend the rest of your life with your best friend.”

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Nadine – “There’s honestly a lot of them. Our wedding was insanity. But there was so much that made it
sentimental. Having a heart to heart with my dad before going to the ceremony. My girls all singing
“Going to the Chapel” all morning. Our daughter holding our hands when we said our vows.
Having my grandparents there. Having everyone I love most in one place.”
Justin – “All of what she said, but for me it was hands down watching her walk down the isle.
I was sweating bullets, but I focused on her and knew everything was going to be fine.”
Can you share the story behind the details that you put into your day to make it special to you two?

Nadine – “My family was a huge part in our day putting everything together, and they always
make every event so meaningful so even planning the wedding was amazing and so sentimental.
Having our daughter as the flower girl, our close friends son as the ring bearer, our closest group of friends
and family in our bridal party, my comically hilarious cousins as the MC’s and ushers, all of it
made for every single aspect of our wedding to be completely unique and special. When we were
planning we included a lot of little details such as the signature drinks, pies instead of cake, a cigar
bar for Justin, hollowed out books for card holders because me and Justin love to read, my
Opa’s typewriter, vintage film camera’s from my uncle, etc. But what really blew us away though was
all the unplanned ones that came along that day, like how emotional everyone was after the ceremony,
the slideshow my sister put together, everyones speeches, and honestly just how much effort,
support and love everyone put into the day just put it over the top.
Tell me about the special aspects of your day that made it unique to you two?
Nadine – “My something old was a piece of my mom’s wedding dress attached to my bouquet, something
borrowed was a pearl necklace from my Oma, something blue was a sapphire ring my dad
gave to my mom when I was born, and my something new was these gorgeous
diamond earrings as a wedding gift from my grandparents.
I also had a locket on my bouquet that had a picture of my grandpa Vernon, and my parents best
friend Johnny because I really loved the idea of them taking that walk down the isle with
me and my dad. The song meand my dad danced to was a song my grandpa used to sing
to my mom, and the song Justin and his mom danced to was a song she used to sing to him when
he was little, so that was really special too. There were so many parts of that day that were so meaningful.”
Advice to couples planning their wedding day?
Nadine – “Make your bridal party, your parents and anyone else a part of your day get together
as often as possible to do fun things. Planning a wedding with these people really bonds you,
and having them there actually having a good time makes planning way more fun.
If you want something specific, and done a certain way then plan it so early you think
it might be too early, and double check it seven times, because you don’t have the time you think
you do, and something is going to not go the way you want it to.
When we got together for the rehearsal, we were so exhausted from decorating, and not prepared at all to
have this fancy dinner we had thought we’d end up having, so we ordered a million pounds of take out,
and half our neighbourhood and extended family ended up coming. Our rehearsal dinner was by far one of
the funnest time’s we’ve all gotten together in a long time, so be open to things not working out as you’d
planned. They’ll most likely end up being better.”

Justin – “A year is not enough time, and what you think it’s going to cost double it. Take all the
time in the world, and enjoy it. Lastly, it’s not about the stuff, it’s about who you’re spending
that day with. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.”

The Lake House Wedding

David & Lauren’s Wedding Day

Calgary Wedding Photographer

Red Bloom Photography

Another wedding to share at a bucket list wedding venue for me!  The Lake House is an absolutely

stunning Calgary Wedding Venue and when David & Lauren asked me to photograph their day

there I was so fricken happy! I am getting into that wedding season wrap up time with getting 

my clients their images is my number one priority so I am going to keep this blog post short and

sweet and let their images tell the story of their day.  David & Lauren wanted to keep the

time between their ceremony & reception short and sweet so that their guests weren’t

waiting around.  When there is a tight time frame between ceremony and reception it is

best to do the photos ahead of time. These two opted out of a first look so instead I did

photos of David and his guys before the ceremony and photos of Lauren and her girls

before their ceremony. This freed up most of the photo time after the ceremony for

family photos and images of the bride & groom. Before I share their wedding images here

is a link to their Kananaskis Engagement Session

David & Lauren – Winter Engagement Session in Kananaskis

Here are a few words from the Newlyweds

How did you guys meet ?

Through mutual friends and actually were setup to meet a couple of times and timing didn’t work out. Lauren
had also moved in across the hall, so they would see each other time to time in the elevator and hallway.  it wasn’t until she
moved out we then had our first date which included David making homemade dorioto nachos and movies.
Please share the proposal story with us? (Written by the groom) 
Well where do I start…. First my nerves were already going a mile a minute even before we travelled
to Cape Breton (where it happened) as I had to somehow get the ring on a plane without her knowing.
I didn’t want to pack it my checked luggage for the possibility my bag gets lost. So the only option was
on in my carry on and that caused more nerves as I did not want to be randomly selected or they see this
box and wanted to know what the contents were and if that was the case this proposal story would end
with my getting down on one knee at the security check point and propose to Lauren. Thankfully that

did not happen and made it all the way to Cape Breton ring intact.

The day of the engagement, hmmm well first trying to sneak off from Lauren to get

things planned was a task in itself so the morning of I told her the truck needed gas and I would be
back after, and Lauren insisted she come with as she wanted coffee… So I somehow convinced her I would only
be a few minutes and my mom had already made coffee and breakfast. So I had 20 minutes to get the ring hidden
in the truck, go to the liquor store to buy champagne and find toasting glasses for after the big moment.
What I didn’t realize the liquor store did not open until 11am and here I was at 10:45 pacing back and forth for

the doors to open!! Thankfully I was not the only person.

So that day we travelled to one of my favorite places in Cape Breton called Cape Smokey Lookoff

which is an unbelievable view point of the ocean

On the drive up it started to rain and overcast and in my mind this was happening no matter what, even

if it was a monsoon I was proposing to Lauren today. So we arrived and somehow I needed to get the ring into my pocket
without her noticing! So we as we arrived the exact spot I forgot the “selfie stick” in the truck

and had to run back and get it! *cue fist pump*

Once the ring was in my pocket my heart was beating a million miles an hour and then came the

question and……. she said YES and it made me the happiest person in the world.

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride – The entire day was perfect its hard to just pick one! I would have to say was walking
down the aisle with my dad, taking the corner and seeing David’s face with the biggest smile,
it made all my nerves go away.
Groom-  The whole day was memorable from getting ready with guys, seeing the venue decorated for
both the ceremony and the reception, and just the overall day itself and being with friend and family.
But if I had to pick on thing from the whole day that I will never forget would be seeing
Lauren for the first time walk down the aisle
Can you share the story behind the details that you put into your day to make it special to you two?
Davids Dad was chosen to be our officiant because he has married all of his children and
being a pastor it comes with the territory. Also my Davids Dad has had a major influence on
his life and has a great deal of respect for him. Knowing that this is something he gets great joy of it was
a no brainier. Davids father also played a role in Lauren’s life as he was the one who performed
Lauren’s baptism as well.
Advice to couples planning their wedding day? 
Enjoy the day, its hard to let it slip away, but sit back and look around the room and just watch,
it goes by so fast! Having a wedding planner definitely did help, we hired a day of planner, and took
so much stress off of everyone. Don’t let anyone control your day but you, its you and your
husband/finance’s day do what you love! One more thing budget .. use a spread sheet,
be realistic and use a 10-15% buffer !

And now here is their wedding story

Michael & Stephanie’s Eagle Ranch Resort Wedding

Invermere Wedding Photographer

Red Bloom Photography

This venue has been on my venue bucket list for a few years now so when Stephanie emailed me

and let me know that her and Michael picked it for their wedding I squealed a little with excitement.

The excitement wasn’t just about the venue but first and foremost about capturing these two as

they said I DO!!! This wedding was so special to me cause not only did I photograph her sisters

wedding in Mexico almost 4 years ago but I also did a beach session with these two in Mexico

and since then I have photographed their family photos and  Stephanie also photo bombed

BOTH of her sisters maternity sessions! So after all these years knowing each other you can

say that I was deeply honored to be choosen

to capture their day as this family is so important to me! And it was even more special that they invited

my husband along to be a guest as well so we got to cruise in a golf cart together with the wedding

party all day!  Eagle Ranch Resort are the most amazing hosts for weddings as they let you

capture images on the course. That sounds surprising but so many golf courses don’t let you

but these guys do as their carts have GPS trackers so they work you in between

golfers. So amazing!! And truly one of the most beautiful courses that I have shot on.

Before we get their wedding story here are a few words from the newlyweds and also

their engagement photos –> Mike & Stephanie’s Fish Creek Park Engagement Session

How did you guys meet? 

We met on a house boating trip that Mike had planned with his friends. We had a mutual friend that

invited me (Steph) last minute and I guess you could say the rest is history!

Please share the proposal story with us? 

Mike had always said he wanted me to be surprised when he (finally) proposed! So he had to come

up with something that fit into our daily life seamlessly so I didn’t figure it out. It was Christmas Eve

and I had to work all day which was perfect for mike! He cleaned the house, got a hair cut and put his plan

into motion. Once I got home we had plans to do our own little Christmas before heading to see each

of our families. We started opening presents and I didn’t expect a thing! Mike had made me believe the my

Apple Watch which wasn’t supposed to arrive until the new year had actually come early. So I excitedly

ripped open the paper and my jaw dropped when I saw that little blue box! He then got down on one knee and

asked me to marry him! I was completely surprised and loved that it was at home, in front of the Christmas

tree with our pups sitting near!

Most memorable moment from your wedding day?

Bride 

My most memorable moment is actually the same as Mike’s but from a different viewpoint! Coming

around that hill and seeing Mike and everyone we love was incredible!

Groom

When I first saw Steph walk around that hill coming down the aisle was probably the most

memorable. Also having all of our friends and family there was awesome.

Can you share the story behind the details that you put into your day to make it special to you two?

One thing that was very important to both of us was to have our 2 dogs be a big part of our wedding. If you

ask anyone who knows us, Mia and Lily are a huge part of our lives and our day just wouldn’t be the same without

them. We were so very lucky to have Eagle Ranch as our venue. They were so accommodating and allowed

our dogs to be involved in our ceremony.

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

We had a couple small memory details that were extremely special that most people probably didn’t even

notice. The first one was I had a dog tag attached to my bouquet. It was the tag from my dog Abby who had passed away a couple

years ago. This way I had all 3 of my fur babies with me walking down the aisle. And the other one was a locket

that was sewn into my dress. This locket is extremely special and actually my Grandma had given it to

my sister Jenny for her wedding 4 years ago. It has a picture of our Grandpa in it.

We miss him dearly but know he is always with us.

And finally the location! Mike and I have traveled to Invermere the past few summers and

absolutely love it! When trying to decide on a venue Mike thought of our favorite golf course (Eagle Ranch) and

that was it! We looked no further!

Advice to couples planning their wedding day?  

A couple pieces of advice! Firstly this is the best day of your lives! Enjoy it! Wedding planning can

get stressful! But try not to sweat the small stuff, nobody is going to remember the silly programs or the

centerpieces! Next would be keep it small. It is absolutely incredible to have almost everyone you love in one

room! But it’s a bit overwhelming to try and make sure you have the time to see everyone! No matter how well

you manage your time, you won’t get as much time with each guest as you would like.

And now here is their Wedding Photo Story

Bryan & Clarissa’s The Lodge at Panther River Wedding

Red Bloom Photography

I am so darn excited to share this intimate and adventurous wedding!!  These are two words that

I want my work and my couples to be all about.  And what bigger adventure is there then going

in a helicopter wedding to the top of a mountain on your wedding day?!?

Bryan & Clarissa were no strangers to my work when they booked me, they are part of a

group of friends that I have been photographing over the last four year. I am so incredibly

lucky when my past clients refer me to their friends and it is a little vote of confidence that

I need to let me know that I am doing a good job.  I actually had on two previous occassions

photographed these two ripping it up on the dance floor at their friends weddings and I

even remember taking a photo  of them last year at a wedding and joked to them to

email me when they get engaged! ha ha.   When Bryan and Clarissa booked me and told me

they were having their wedding at The Lodge at Panther River I was immediately curious

about this venue that I had never heard of before. And just second after doing some research on it

I feel in love and just knew that their day would be absolutely amazing! These two love the outdoors

and adventure and camping so having a wedding at a gorgeous secluded camping/event venue was

the perfect fit for them. Just a few months after they booked me, they emailed me and asked if I would be okay going

in the helicopter for photos. There is not enough exclamation marks to show how excited I was

for this. I think my reply to them was HECK YES!!!!!!!!!!!  I love adventure and I love that my couples

do too!  An amazing thing about this location is that when I arrived early the event manager actually

gave me a private tour of the locations for photos.  Which was great as I was not familiar with the area.

The property had a gorgeous log cabin where Clarissa and her girls got ready

and Bryan and the boys had an awesome(although very hot) white tent to get ready in.  They had

their ceremony on the river bed and it was absolutely stunning! After the ceremony we cruised down the

road to this beautiful river bed for the wedding party photos and then Bryan, Clarissa and I headed

to the mountain top in the helicopter.  The smokey sky blocked the view a bit but it did make

for some gorgeous photos!

I should mention that the three of us(actually four of us cause my husband tagged along) also

went on an adventure for their engagement photos and you can see their session here

And now here is Bryan & Clarissa’s Wedding Story

He hid the cans in his gift to Clarissa.calgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographersMy favorite thing to see at a wedding. Not because I need to be the only one taking photos but because then the guests are more present

to the ceremony and also then I do not have to deal with cell phone and  I pads blocking the isle as the bride walks down.calgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographersObsessed with the casual groom and groomsmen style!  Suspenders and chucks are a good match!calgary wedding photographerscalgary wedding photographersCan we just admire that bowtie!
