I have been wanting to shoot a wedding at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary for quite some time now. That I got to do it with Anastasia and Shailesh was a treat for me. You couldn’t ask for a nicer (or fashionable) couple to work with. We had one of those classically beautiful, late summer, Calgary days. It really was delightful.

Anastasia received blessings from her family before getting into her dress.

He wanted to stay awake. Really he did.

A couple of super simple portraits right outside the church.

We had about 15 minutes to wander a few alleys near the Fairmont before going in for the cocktail hour.

They surprised their guests with a pretty fun dance number as part of their grand entrance. I wish I had taken a video so that you could have heard everyone cheering and laughing!
