The essence of life is to communicate love - @yogitea
I seriously love the brand of tea I get - better than fortune cookies!
Last summer I had a pleasure of 2nd shooting for the wonderful and very talented @kenzie.tippe - such a beautiful day!
Ian's family farm is SO beautiful - I was so taken in by the beauty I completely drove past the spot I was suppose to meet Ian at.... Ooops! ⤐
The drive was incredible - the valley that dips down around the North Saskatchewan River between Maymont & Sonningdale was breathtaking. I love a good car ride adventure in our stunning province, especially to document a beautiful wedding! ⤐
I love how Steph & Ian chose to do their first look & formal photos out here - it's a place that means something to them.
I think it is just wonderful when my couples choose to incorporate something into their wedding day that means something, a location, piece of jewelry, a favorite food that a Grandmother makes or even something from their home that represents them. It is all about you two and the unique love you have together.
The days are just flying by this month and the countdown is on until my first workshop!
For years I have been wanting to teach and mentor other photographers. It all started by teaching my daughters grade 7 class, which was so much fun. It also stems from my years of being a photographer. I started 12 years next month and always felt like so many things were kept secret in the industry, I felt like I was on my own with no one to help me if I needed it - I was never taught about the business end of it & there was no community. It was very lonely. ⤐
However, over the last few years there has been such a HUGE shift in this community and it has been so refreshing. The workshops that are being offered, how so many believe in community over competition, being able to find your tribe in this industry and just helping one another out from day to day questions, to just being a friend to lean on or even being a phone call away because you feel defeated after having a bad day and need someone to chat with. ⤐
I personally have grown so much through the power of community. I don't feel so alone anymore, I've made so many great friends, learned so much and in turn have inspired and helped others. It can be lonely being an entrepreneur but if you're open to the idea of being in this community and reaching out when you do feel that way, we are here to listen, go for coffee or to just be a friend. ⤐

To my editing cave! 🙌🏼 5 shoots in 3 days... now I think I’ll stay in my pajamas the next 3 days until I get these done ;) But while I sit here and stare at multiple download screens, I’ll leave you with this image of a camping engagement session last summer that made me oh so happy 😍 Can’t wait for their outdoorsy wedding in the woods! 🌲

“I’ll always want to drive with you. I’ll always want to trace all the corners of the world with my own bare hands. We’ll whirl by the exits like flight. Like wind. Two birds collecting stories. Breaking all cages. Chasing our whims...” -Victoria Erickson
You are my future that I used to daydream of when I was young.

intentionality / my word for 2019
+ intentional with my time, relationships, clients, my business, with jesus
it's easy to get lost in the ebb and flow of each day, but I want to create a sense of intentionality in every aspect of my life that I can. I want to create more intimate relationships and grow them the be healthy and full of love
Here is a little BTS of the shot I posted yesterday. I was borrowing the groom's hat to get this one 😂 but these are the moments I love to capture. The sweet moments after you say I do where it feels like you two are the only ones in the world with all of the excitement for the life & love to come ❤️

I think 2019 calls for more adventure and I'm already sitting at my desk planning away!
I'll be traveling to British Columbia at the end of June to photograph a wedding in beautiful Peachland, BC - and I'm planning to adventure around those parts for the first week(s) of July. It has been a long time since I've drove through the mountains and I'm looking forward to it. I may have to bring my kayak along.
If you're thinking of eloping out to British Columbia, having an intimate wedding or just need a photographer to capture your love, totally get in touch with me! I'd love to chat all things love & adventure!
I started sorting through ALL my sessions last night to find my favorite images to submit to this years @shootandshare Photo Contest! This will be my 2nd year submitting, I'm super pumped!
I narrowed it down to 84 images... now the task of getting it down to 50! Seriously, this is so hard you guys! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can anyone else relate on having a hard time choosing images to submit?
Been going through all my images from 2018 to get ready for the @shootandshare photo contest - I know I'm going all in with 50 images.... but seriously it is so hard to choose! I met and photographed so many beautiful humans this year and I just want to enter them all!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyone else entering?

when a husband looks at his wife it should look like this. the look that Alex is giving Callie is just plain magic y’all 💫
I want to be more than just a photographer that you've hired. To me, my job as your photographer means more to me than just showing up with my camera and getting you to pose and give me some fake ass smiles. See, fake smiles aren't real....YOUR LOVE IS REAL so let's capture it!
I want to get to know YOU, become your friend, chat like we haven't seen each other in ages so I can capture your unique love as authentically as I can. See, I have a passion for capturing true raw emotion. The kind that gives you goosebumps thinking about the first time you kissed or belly laugh so hard you start to cry because it was just so awkward... that happens too, trust me I've heard some hilarious stories and I love how unique everyone's story is!!!
Don't worry about being awkward..I'm awkward all the time and clumsy I can't forget that 😂.... we'll get along just fine and have a blast... I'll guide you where needed and watch the beauty unfold. ⤐
Reminiscing about days gone by and what you two hold dear to your hearts together in this present time. To share your love, connect and to keep falling head over heals in love for one another - this is what I am all about - I am a romantic at heart and my passion is to bring out the romance with my couples. (can we count how many times I say LOVE in this post 😜)
From the big moments of celebration and to the quiet ones where you just breathe together and become one. It's all about celebrating your love, creating memories and documenting them so when you look back 10-50 years from now you'll get that rush of feelings you felt in that instant - your love is always worth celebrating. Let's document more of it, together!
