A little bit of my story…

I started my adult life as a videographer at a big news station, but quickly realized I was craving more creativity and less drama in my life! So I rekindled with my passion for photography and dove in head first!

Alex and I live in Ardrossan (a tiny hamlet outside of Edmonton, Alberta) and our favourite part about our home is the nature that surrounds it. We get weekly visits from the local deer and moose and we'll often fall asleep to the howling and yipping of coyotes. 

We love roadtrips and camping. No location is ever too far... We've been known to drive 10 hours for 2 nights of camping at an amazing spot, just to drive back less than 48 hours later. We're no stangers to day trips to Jasper and we're always on the lookout for those off the beaten path wonders. Hello Lussier Hot Springs! We've also had our fair share of quick road side stop power naps and McDonalds parking lot cookouts with the campstove. #reallife

I am also an animal lover (I'm the one who stops to talk to the chipmunks and frogs on the trails) and adoptive mother of two cats (if you follow me on Instagram – more importantly my Stories) you will find a slightly alarming percentage of those posts are about them…but what can I say? They’re just so darn fluffy!

P.S.: My kitties are named Sammy and Luna. Luna, because she’s a little bonkers and sometimes I swear she can see the Nargles. Bonus points if you got the reference. I can already sense we’ll be friends.

My Photography Style…

I specialize in outdoor, adventurous and sunshine drenched weddings, elopements and couples in love. Although I photograph all kinds of couples in love in different locations, my natural, organic, laid-back and keeping-it-real vibe really thrives in the mountains, forests or anywhere wifi doesn't touch! #hikingbootsoverheels

Keeping it real... You photographs will represent your truest selves and your biggest most genuine and natural smiles... I'm all for the tickle fights, those sweet sweet cuddles under the northern lights and the happy tears that come from marrying your best friend. There's no space for posey or inauthentic photographs here.

Natural and organic... Together, we'll hike mountains, treck across chilly rivers and proudly switch out our fancy shoes for muddy hiking boots. We're free spirits who love nature and spontaneous road trips. We have no problem (love it actually!) driving 4 hours to a beautiful remote location for an afternoon just to drive right back home the same night.

Laid-back... Your wedding will be focused on the love and the moments shared with dear friends and family. You cherish moments over things. You'll savor every single moment, because at the end of the day, those moments and experiences are all that matter.

This is your unique love story and I would be thrilled (nay, honored!) to be allowed the privilege to capture those memories for you... so they can stay with you forever.
