Now that we’ve been at this for a couple years, I’ve really started to notice the cycles of being a wedding photographer. Starting about mid-April; you start thinking about the upcoming wedding season quite a bit – excited about the venues and the couples that we’ll working with as well as thinking about new ideas and poses to try. By the beginning of May I am starting to get downright antsy, ready to get the show on the road and excited to see what will happen. I couldn’t think of a better wedding to start the summer season with than Laura and Leif. One of the things that I love most about our jobs is the friends that we’ve made along the way – it almost felt like we were shooting at a family member’s wedding.

As always, Duane started out the day by grabbing some bridal preparation shots at the salon:


He was joined by our good friend, past client and talented photographer Zoe. Her husband Quinn (Leif’s brother) was in the wedding party so she kindly agreed to come along as a second shooter.





The ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful, Pinebrook Golf Course on the west side of the city.




Sharing a quick moment after the ceremony.







We knew that we had a potential winner for the car shot when we found the vintage Shell sign in Bragg Creek!


This shot serves two purposes. First and foremost it shows off Laura’s fabulous shoes (she was very excited about them). But secondly, it allows me to whine about the snow! Snow! Seriously!? Most people are ready for summer now, but to be honest I would even settle for spring….




These next two show the beauty of having both Duane and I shooting together. Because while I was getting this shot…

…Duane was getting this one!



I asked her if she wanted to trade but she took one look at my ugly black camera and turned me down cold.


Leave the camera unguarded for just two minutes and this is what happens…



Sometimes there are just no words…



Thanks again guys for including Duane and I on your day – we had a blast! Looking forward to going out to the lake with you later this summer!
