Calgary Zoo Wedding 68 Photography

Melissa and Paul were married on August 4th, with a ceremony and reception at the Calgary Zoo.

Melissa is good friends with two former clients of mine—Shannon and Teddy, whose wedding I shot in May 2016; and Courtney and Matt, whose wedding I shot in May 2012. It’s a truly special feeling when friends of clients seek me out. It lets me know that my work as a wedding photographer was appreciated enough that my clients trust me with their friends’ weddings too!

These two had a whirlwind of planning before their wedding, as they wanted to be able to have Melissa’s grandparents there. They had to move fast so they could be married while her grandparents were in town. Even with a shortened timeline, Melissa still managed to find time to do all the décor and favours herself. She is simply amazing.

On the day of the wedding, I met up with Melissa and Paul to stage a first look at Nose Hill Park before we went to the zoo to get some pictures. My favourite picture by far is the one of them making the lemur face. It absolutely cracks me up. When couples aren’t afraid of just letting go and being themselves, it makes the day so much fun.

Of course, this bride and groom could do romantic just as well as funny, so I also loved the image of the two of them holding hands as they hiked up the hill. We’d gone down to the Bow River for a few more pictures and as they walked back up the bank, their hands intertwined. This easy, natural affection between the two of them was just as much fun to capture as their silliness.

The real star of the show here was their 2-year-old son, Cason. He was so clearly excited to see everyone at the ceremony. But the best part was during the ceremony itself when he grabbed both Melissa’s and Paul’s hands and started swinging back and forth. Little Cason’s adventures didn’t end at the ceremony—oh no. He wanted to take pictures with a random family at the zoo… he started to take off his clothes during the speeches… he was hilarious throughout the whole night.

Once again, this wedding was the perfect blend of funny and romantic, as Melissa and Paul balanced out their hilarious son with their intimate vows. All their friends and family were sure to make reference to them “finally” being married during all the speeches.

Paul & Melissa, thank you so much for a day full of laughs. I’m so grateful that you decided to let me be the one who told the story of your day.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the
message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great
blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but
I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work?

I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Appreciate it!

and I was curious about your situation; many of us have
created some nice practices and we are looking
to swap methods with other folks, please shoot me an email
if interested.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
someone!
