Hello friends!

I'm the wedding photographer for the adventurous couple that wishes to exchange their vows in the most sacred of settings. The great outdoors!


I also created an e-book for fellow photographers who are interested in learning how to shoot in manual-mode! Check it out below. :) It's free!

Brandi + Colin // Fantasyland Hotel Wedding



Brandi planned the most amazing prank first look for Colin. Everyone was in on it, except Colin, of course! ;) Brandi’s brother wore a small wedding dress, walked up to Colin and tapped on his shoulder. I told Colin to wait for “Brandi” to tap him on the shoulder before turning around. When he got the tap, poor Colin was already crying a little, in anticipation of seeing his bride for the first time that day! But to his surprise, it definitely WASN’T Brandi that was standing behind him! After all that, Brandi did eventually walk up to meet her groom and their first look was wonderful. Tears from both of them and the sweetest portraits.

Between that prank and their hilarious ceremony at the Fantasy Land Hotel, Brandi and Colin’s wedding day was a blast!

It did start raining while we were taking family portraits before the ceremony and it didn’t stop raining all evening and into the night. Because we couldn’t do outside, I had to get creative for their bride and groom portraits – a window in a clean hallway of the hotel offered some nice natural light for some portraits! After that, I took Brandi to another cool corner of the West Edmonton Mall – a glass staircase!

The rest of the evening was spent dancing and partying! Thanks again Brandi and Colin for having me on your wedding day!
