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…

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.
