Alas a fall wedding post from, well, last year. It was a beautiful late fall day in Edmonton and we really lucked out with the weather. I once again assisted FM Photo Studios and here are just a few of the beautiful couple!

Best line ever when asked what kind of family session they would like to have. So no fields here folks. Just beautiful Edmonton buildings and alleys. Here are some of my favourites! Another cool one can be viewed HERE.

Crystal has to be one of the most gracious brides I have ever met. It was pouring, not just a little drizzle pouring, but full on freezing cold pouring rain on her wedding day pouring. Did she complain? Nope, not once. They both just took it in stride and enjoyed their day regardless of the circumstances. That’s all you can do right?

Here is some of the wedding photography that I shot while assisting FMPhotostudios in Edmonton that day.

I have learned so much about the art of wedding photography from Marko, that it was a little unnerving to photograph his wedding with my other mentor FMPhotoStudios! However, it was a beautiful day and Marko & Casandra’s attention to detail was amazing!

I started off as normal by photographing the groom getting ready, but they didn’t tell me it was going to be an all out party before the party!  How fun is that?!

The service was lovely and full of beautiful traditions.

We then went to various locations around the Edmonton area for some fun with the bridal party!

The hall was decorated so beautifully by the couple.  They spent hundreds of hours hand making all of the gorgeous paper flowers that surrounded the 6 ft tall LOVE sign and head table. Uh-maz-ing! As an aside, let me know if you or someone you know would be interested in renting the sign. I just might be able to hook you up 😉

Congratulations you two! I wish you nothing but health and happiness!

Hold onto your hats, this is a beautiful wedding from this fall with GORGEOUS yellow bridesmaid’s dresses, beautiful details and amazing shots in the rain. It was such a fun wedding to photograph with FMPhotoStudios!

First up were the groom preparations:

Once the dust had settled, we got down to business and photographed the couple’s formal photos around the Edmonton area.

The evening ended with a gorgeous rain that cooled things off and helped to produce these wedding photographs that I absolutely love!

It was a pleasure to meet you both!

This little man was just shy of a week old when I did his newborn photographs and he was absolutely adorable.

I thought I’d try something a little different for today’s blog post on Family Photography and post a video of some favourites from a recent session. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

I’m bundled up in my favourite fall sweater today editing some photos from this summer and dreaming of the sand and not-so-warm Pacific Ocean between my toes.  This is one of the most magical places for my family and we absolutely love to visit here each year regardless of the drive and hike.  It is worth it!!  As soon as we hit the sand, the dog starts to dig and the kids sprint to the rope swing.

And they swing, and swing, and swing…Even using Jedi mind powers to push the swing out further 😉

This year, my 11 year old took my camera and said, “You swing Mom! I got this!” I.had.a.ball. and had to bow after my uncharacteristically graceful dismount!  I’ve taught her well, huh?!

Even the crazy dog wanted in on the action…I swear she thinks she’s human…

Finally, once everyone’s a little more pooped, we contemplate life, enjoy the beauty and have the waves chase us as the tide comes in and we prolong our departure…A PERFECT day indeed!

Until next time…
