Doggy Cake Smash!

I’ve got your attention don’t I?

Your eyes aren’t deceiving you, yes! We did a photoshoot of 2 adorable pups for their 2nd birthday. These two are special to us because their parents are some of our best friends at K&E Imaging!

Our friend group actually has a group chat where all we do is share videos and pictures of our pets, we actually set a date to celebrate Alderson and Jasper’s birthday and I’m pretty sure we were all so into that! It doesn’t take a crazy event for us to get together and eat cake… Heck, rather than celebrating St. Patrick’s day we celebrated Kurt Russell’s birthday, watched a few of his movies, and ate 2 separate cakes…

But I’m getting off topic! Back to these two crazy pups. This was honestly the quickest I’ve ever seen anything eaten ever… I should have planned better and took a video of this because DANG it was gone in under 5 minutes. But I guess 2 giant dogs nom-ing a cake shouldn’t take that long… Alderson’s mom was nice enough to save some goodies for Toffee because there was no way he was going to be able to get in there even with his Big Dog attitude.

They behaved long enough for us to snap a few shots before the mowing of this cake started, but rather than blab on about it (and good for you for reading all of this) Here is Jasper & Alderson’s 2nd Birthday Cake smash.

Cake purchased at Pupcakes YYC

Chelsea & Christian’s Calgary Wedding

Chelsea & Christian’s Calgary Wedding

I can’t help falling in love with these two

I can’t express my love of these two enough! Their October wedding was something that was made for them and their family and friends. I love it when that is the main goal of a couple getting married is how they can interact and be with the people they love most.

  • What was your most anticipated part of the day 
    Christian – Seeing Chelsea walk down the isle. Any anxieties or worries disappeared as soon as I saw her coming towards me, and I knew nothing could go wrong as long as I had her with me. Chelsea – Christian is my person. I was most excited to have my person with me on the biggest day of our lives. I was so nervous and excited but the second we made eye contact at the front, he took my hand and smiled. My person was there and all was right.
  • Did anything unexpected happen? What was the outcome?
    Chelsea – I went into this wedding with the mindset that you have to go with the flow, or otherwise, you would be too stressed out to enjoy the day. If anything unexpected did happen, I honestly didn’t really notice because I was enjoying the day with my new husband and our whole family there. Christian – I can’t recall any specifics, but if anything unexpected that did happen was just a plus to an amazing day. It was a welcome addition and a pleasant surprise.
  • What ended up being your favourite part of the day?
    Chelsea – Besides the ceremony (of course), taking pictures with the wedding party. It was a time for us to goof off after the anticipation of the day. Christian – The ceremony was my favourite by far. Mostly due to the fact that Chelsea and I felt like we were the only ones in the room.
  • In your own words describe how you felt during the most special moments of the day. IE: Getting ready, during the ceremony, right before you said “I do”
    Chelsea – Butterflies.. always. But I couldn’t stop smiling as I was way too excited. It was me and the love of my life, and nothing else really mattered. Christian – The feeling of getting ready was a pre-game situation. I was in the zone and more focused on my excitement of the upcoming ceremony. Once at the ceremony was just a constant lead-up-drum-roll in my mind. But then once Chelsea and I were together and about to say “I do” it was smooth as silk. I was so calm and at ease. It’s like she and I had done it a million times. It felt right and normal.
  • What was your wedding inspiration?
    Chelsea – I think I went with the term “understated elegance”. Simple, beautiful, and of course any bride uses Pinterest as an inspiration. Christian – The wedding of Superheroes.
  • What song did you walk down the aisle to? You are mine
  • What song played for your first dance? Elvis Presley – Can’t help falling in Love. (But most importantly it was sung by a family member)
  • How did you feel at the end of the day?
    Chelsea – Very tired, nd couldn’t stop smiling. In all honesty, I was a little sad that the day flew by so quickly. I had so much fun planning the day, and the day was so amazing in itself I wanted to do it all over again.
  • What advice would you give to future couples for their wedding?
    Chelsea – Be flexible with your plans, and go with the flow. If not, you would be more stressed out about throwing the “perfect wedding” rather than what the day actually means. Christian – Don’t get caught up with everyone’s input and the hype. You want to respect everyone’s opinions, but at the end of the day, you have to do what is right by both you and your partner.
  • What did you like most about working with us on your wedding day? Honestly, what was there not to like!? You were an absolute blast to work with as you let us show our goofy and quirky sides. You let us be ourselves, and you can really feel the emotions captured in the pictures.

Mother’s Day Mini Sessions!

Mother’s Day Mini Sessions

This May 5th, supporting Rides for Relief

We are so excited to be bringing back our Mother’s day mini sessions this May in Calgary! With spring hitting us a little earlier this year we are going to be headed outside and working with the cutest truck you’ve ever seen. So it’s time to get cosy with mom and finally update those family photos that you’ve been talking about for ages!

We are also really happy to be working with Keri and Tracy of Moms, For Real / Rides For Relief, a couple of amazing women who are putting on their second annual Car Show Fundraiser to support women and families who are dealing with domestic abuse. We will be donating $50 from each session towards their organization! So not only are you getting something beautiful, you’re giving a new chance for someone in need. Read more about them and their work after the jump.

We got a sneak peek of our set up with Darylann’s truck and just had to get Keri and her 2 amazing boys in for a quick session.

We are making a full day event out of this and will have 15 minute sessions for each family with our adorable truck set, you’ll be greeted by Keri and Tracy of Moms, For Real / Rides for Relief and you’ll be working with Kaela of K&E Imaging to photograph some cute moments together! You’ll also receive snacks and water from us after your shoot leaving your bellies full and hydrated!

So to break it down, your session includes:

15 minutes on set with K&E Imaging
An easy online gallery to choose your images and share
5 edited images
Snacks
$50 donated to Rides for Relief

All for $230.00 + GST

Get your ticket from our event page on Facebook !

What to wear!

We have some really great inspiration from our mini shoot with Keri of Rides for Relief and her two sweet boys. She came all matchy matchy to the mustard yellow truck! 
Here’s a link for some more ideas for you and your family 
K&E Pinterest Page

Here’s a little more from Keri and Tracy from Moms, For Real

Domestic abuse is a very serious, and secretive topic, and Moms, For Real Tracy & Keri, have some very personal ties to this cause.

Why us?

We are women. We are moms. And, Why Not? We know that Domestic Abuse is a topic no one wants to speak about – and we are dedicated to it’s uncovering in order to bring air and light to help those who need it the VERY MOST:  THE SURVIVORS.

We are pioneers of the “Moms for REAL” movement: a group of people who believe – at the very core of our being – that a strong, healed, supported, and well nourished family will change the world.

We believe that a strong community makes that possible. Giving humans the skills to PROVIDE for themselves while in crisis, is a PRIORITY for us, as systems continue to apparently have some of them falling through cracks.
What is possible when we gather, fortify, and devote ourselves to the celebration of COMMUNITY LIFE?

Engagement

Tamika & Kane – Engaged!

Downtown by the riverside Engagement Session 

Summers are amazing for engagement sessions and this one took way too long for me to post considering how wonderful and easy it was to work with Tamika and Kane. I didn’t have to do much coaching with them, they just were glowing with love, always touching each other, looking deeply into each other’s eyes. It was a perfect setting in one of Calgary’s more modern parks (I like to think anyway) at St. Patrick’s Island just kitty-corner to East Village. It’s a great spot for a walk with your dog and then stop and get a bite or a coffee from Rosso! Not to mention the park’s iconic bridge. 

Getting to be by water was important to them, there is something so beautiful about relating a river to a relationship. You can’t step in the same river twice, every moment in a relationship is always changing, always flowing. 

We asked Tamika and Kane to tell us a little bit about themselves and how they met

  • Tell us where and when you first met (from each of your point of views)
    We met on an app called whisper in July 2014.
  • Tell us about your first date. Where? When? What did you feel?
    our first date was at the cineplex at chinook mall, where we saw the conjuring!
  • When did you know your fiance was the one? Details please!
    Kane – after I started to realize that she was the smartest woman I’ve met and she helps me see things from a new perspective all the time. She puts up with my childish antics and I love her for that Tamika – when I started to see how kind and supportive he is i knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him!
  • When did you get engaged?
    Jul 1, 2016
  • Tell us about the proposal (from your own point of view) Details please! (we’re sappy for this stuff)
    Kane – We planned to go to nose hill to take some pictures for a long time. Finally the date arrived, it was a nice sunny day and we hiked up the hill to a nice secluded spot we had picked out months before. We dressed up, brought the camera, and the GoPro. I set up the camera on the tripod (and while tamika was playing with sticks, set up the GoPro in a secret hidden spot) then I had tamika go pose in front of the camera for me so I could frame up the shot. Weeks before, I had taken some pictures of myself holding up some signs I made, they said “Ducky (my name for her), will you marry me?” These pictures were on the memory card in camera. I wanted her to scroll through them on her own when I asked her to come look at the photo I just took. That didn’t happen. I said “come here and see if these are good shots” she hopped over and looked at the picture. As I struggled to get the ring out of my pocket she she hopped back in front of the camera so I could take some more shots. Fail. I left the ring in my pocket and tried again. Another failure. The the third time I finally told her I took a few photos and she should scroll through them, so she did. I nervously stepped behind her, took the ring out of my pocket and got down on one knee. When she saw the photos of me holding the signs she gasped and turned around. She saw her very special ring made just for her and her very special man forever presenting it to her. She said yes! And I captured it all on the GoPro!
  • What do you do together for fun? Watch sports? Drink coffee? Play games? Cook? Movies? Workout? etc…
    We go on cinematic adventures, we love to play games, and we like going out to Canmore for walks and adventures.
  • What is your favourite kind of wine?
    Any sweet wines!
  • What are your favourite snack foods?
    Cookies and popcorn!
  • If you were to have a “ME” day, what 3 things would you do for yourself?
    Tamika would read a book, get her nails done, and nap. Kane would play music, do some 3d modelling or animation, and play some video games.
  • What 3 qualities best describe your fiance?
    Kane is generous, supportive, and ambitious. Tamika is very supportive, intelligent, and selfless.
  • Tell us about your personal style. Are you modern, vintage, romantic, trendy, athletic, etc…
    Tamika – is trendy! Kane is an unknown snowflake
  • What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
    Besides marrying my best friend, having family and friends come together to celebrate with us

Lee & Carl Married! (Finally)

A love story meant for novels. 

I’m not even kidding this is super adorable. I’m recalling their story from memory and I was gushing the whole time during their consultation. 

Lee and Carl met each other about 30 years ago. They started dating and went out for a while then Carl did a silly thing (or a stupid thing if you ask him) and he dumped her. They both moved on, each married someone else, and unfortunately (or fortunately in this case) those ended. Some years passed and they were reunited at a party. Started dating again and Carl knew, Lee knew. He asked her to marry him in April with a stunning ring, she, of course, said YES! 

They were married on a gorgeous day on June 1st with just a couple of witnesses, Jacqueline Hoare Life Celebrant – Alberta Marriage Commissioner – and us!

Family Newborn

Newborn Baby Peyton

Its a wonderful thing when your friends have babies! I definitely made a very loud, very girly sound when Kristin told me she was pregnant. It’s that part of life that a lot of women look forward to, being a mom. 

Peyton was only a couple of weeks old when I came over to photograph the cuteness <3 She was the best little baby, only cried a few times, didn’t pee on either of us, made us laugh, sigh, and my poor ovaries cried out! 

She already had so much hair that I was surprised she was a brand new baby. You know this little one is going to have beautiful, thick, lucious hair when she grows up, and not to mention she has the cutest little plump lips…

Engagement Portraits

Avi & Laurie Engagement Session

Avi & Laurie’s Calgary Engagement Session

It’s great to get outside while the sun in shining! Avi and Laurie wanted a laid back and relaxed engagement session here in the city. We have so many beautiful parks and this time we visited Sandy Beach for the first time. There were plenty of family BBQ’s, kids playing, people walking their dogs, and finding a parking spot was HARD! 

It was so relaxed and so many great spots, not to mention all of the pollen coming off of the trees! 

Here is a bit about Laurie & Avi <3 We can’t wait for their wedding coming up so soon! 

 

  • Tell us where and when you first met (from each of your point of views)
    We met through mutual friends. Laurie came back to Calgary from university in Ottawa. I had moved to Calgary 5 years before that. We ended up having the same social circle.
  • Tell us about your first date. Where? When? What did you feel?
    We went to Earls and just enjoyed chatting and getting to know each other.
  • When did you know your fiance was the one? Details please!
    We settled into our relationship very effortlessly. Neither of us had experienced a relationship like this in the past, so this was new & exciting.
  • When did you get engaged?
    Dec 16, 2017
  • Tell us about the proposal (from your own point of view) Details please! (we’re sappy for this stuff)
    We were in Banff as was our custom for the weekend of Hanukkah. On Saturday morning Laurie said we were going to Norquay to go tubing but then drove to a helicopter pad in Canmore. Because it was a blue sky and no wind day, we went close to the mountains and even between some peaks. We landed on a piece of land that bridged the BC-Alberta border for a chance to play in the snow. On the way back down Laurie pulled out a box, opened it, and presented me with a ring. Did he go down on one knee? Nope, he was strapped into a helicopter. Did Laurie say something mushy or even ask me to marry him? Nope, couldn’t hear him, the helicopter is very loud. Yup, just the right amount of romance for us.
  • What do you do together for fun? Watch sports? Drink coffee? Play games? Cook? Movies? Workout? etc…
    We like to ski, go for drives, and just hang out. I know, not that exciting, but it works for us.
  • What is your favourite kind of wine?
    I like wine, I’m not picky which kind. Laurie is more of a beer guy.
  • What are your favourite snack foods?
    Um, all of them!
  • If you were to have a “ME” day, what 3 things would you do for yourself?
    Sleep, eat, watch tv.
  • What’s one thing you think we should know about you that has defined who you are today?
    We are both playful/immature. Meaning we don’t take things too seriously. 🙂
  • What 3 qualities best describe your fiance?
    Funny, helpful, cute
  • What would your fiance say are your best 3 qualities?
    friendly, compassionate, helpful
  • Tell us about your personal style. Are you modern, vintage, romantic, trendy, athletic, etc…
    Simple, easy going.
  • What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
    Celebrating with friends & family.

Ann & Stevo Winter Wedding

Ann & Stevo’s Chinese Winter Wedding

Even -35 degrees can’t stop a perfect wedding day

You read that right! It was a toe freezing -35 and when you want to get that winter wonderland look, going outside is a must and boy am I glad we did. Photographs in the snow turned out amazing and we made sure we had all the proper gear to keep toes and fingers from freezing. An amazing team brought the whole day together and see their vendors after the jump! 

We asked Ann + Stevo to tell us a bit about how they felt on their wedding day: 

  • What was your most anticipated part of the day 
    For both of us it was our vows – we were both excited to share with each other the vows we had written and share in that moment with our loved ones.
  • Did anything unexpected happen? What was the outcome?
    One of our photo locations fell through, but Kaela and Elijah were amazing and found gorgeous outdoor locations for us to do our photos!
  • What ended up being your favourite part of the day?
    We can’t pick a favourite! Highlights were the beautiful outdoor photos we took, the amazing speeches, toasting the tables, and our friends and family lighting up the dance floor.
  • In your own words describe how you felt during the most special moments of the day. IE: Getting ready, during the ceremony, right before you said “I do”
    There were so many moments where it felt like there was just the two of us in the room – it was really special to just know in that moment that we were there for each other.
  • What was your wedding inspiration?
    We wanted to follow the traditional Chinese wedding colours – red and gold!
  • What song did you walk down the aisle to?
    An instrumental version of “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz.
  • What song played for your first dance?
    “Head Over Boots” by Jon Pardi.
  • How did you feel at the end of the day?
    Exhausted! But so grateful to everyone who helped make our wedding day as wonderful as we could have imagined.
  • What advice would you give to future couples for their wedding?
    Don’t sweat the small stuff and enjoy the day.
  • What did you like most about working with us on your wedding day?
    Your positivity and dedication to doing such a wonderful job!

Brianna & Dave Canmore E-Session

Canmore E-Session
Brianna & David

I adore engagement sessions especially when we get to head out to the mountains! Canmore is my future living spot… Anyways! Photographing Brianna & Dave was so much fun. These two know how to goof around and I don’t think we stopped laughing. Dave is the king of Dad jokes and a good thing too with 2 little girls. Here are some awesome facts about Brianna & Dave. 

Tell us where and when you first met
We first met when Dave came into the Husky restaurant while I was serving breakfast one more. It was an instant connection.

Tell us about your first date. Where? When? What did you feel?
We went to Toad & Turtle and spent 5-6 hours just talking and laughing. We didn’t even realize how many hours we’d been there for!

The first time we talked

When did you get engaged?
Dec 20, 2016

Tell us about the proposal (from your own point of view) Details please! (we’re sappy for this stuff)
It was hilarious and not romantic at all at first lmao (The only thing romantic was what he said when he asked lol). We had just come home from dinner with my family for my nephew’s birthday. *please be prepared for rude humor* haha….I was *ahem* peeing and was at the perfect height to look like I was going to propose to Dave. So, naturally I grabbed his hand while I was peeing and jokingly asked him “will you marry me?” Then I, as normal, let a big one rip and yelled “blow dry!!” hehehehe!!!! He laughed so hard and then walked around the corner to the bedroom. I was washing my hands and he kept grabbing me and telling me he loved me so much and I was laughing, asking him if I could wash my hands please! Haha. He took my hand and walked me to the bed and then got on one knee. Dave told me how he never thought he would want to get married until the day he met me, how I am the girl of his dreams and nothing could make him happier then to spend the rest of his life with me. We cried our little sappy eyes out and hugged and I jumped up and down haha. Obviously, I said yes! Who wouldn’t say yes to such an amazing man?! 😁 We called everyone and then I told him he can hang out with his friends now….lmao jkjk. It is a fantastic memory and I wouldn’t change anything.

What do you do together for fun? Watch sports? Drink coffee? Play games? Cook? Movies? Workout? etc…
