Classy Summer Garden Wedding with Great Dane puppies

Classy Summer Garden Wedding Brock and Brittani‘s summer wedding day was delightful.  In between all of the beautiful details & decor they had been carefully planning for months, laid heartfelt moments as they not only became husband and wife but committed themselves to one another and as a family of four with the couple’s two […]

I met up with Marcus and Michelle at a little cafe in the town of Wolseley, Saskatchewan for their spring engagement session.  There was still snow on the ground but the sun came out and we had a gorgeous session. These two were a pleasure to get to know and I was in awe of […]

Weyburn Winter Engagement photos Troy & Rikki invited me to Weyburn where they both live and work as EMTs to photograph their lovely winter engagement photo session.  These two planned a gorgeous shoot among woodsy backdrops and brought along their beautiful dog as well. Rikki wore a striking fitted statement coat and Troy complimented in warm black jacket. […]

James and Christie choose Kenosee Lake as the location for their woodsy winter engagement session.  I’m so excited to photograph their wedding in June at The Red Barn, the perfect setting just north of the Moose Mountain Provincial Park. We eased into the shoot with a walk through some of the beautiful birch tree paths at […]

I travelled to Brandon Manitoba to meet and photograph Clinton and Ashley’s winter engagement session.  The couple choose the most beautiful location with a beautiful rustic barn out in the country. We started the session using the outside of the barn and got some fun shots of the couple with their dog.  When the wind […]

When I heard Ken and Whitley were engaged this winter, I think I literally shouted out loud with joy.  After knowing these two for a few years, it was wonderful to hear they were planning to be married.  I found out during their engagement session they plan to have a destination wedding in May and […]

The Nichols family was interested in updating their family photos, so we went to some of my favourite spots in Carnduff for their fall session.  It’s been two years since I photographed this family of four.  Ryan & Tenille are a great couple of parents to Anesa & Rowyn.  These girls are so trendy and […]

Terrill, Lisa and Preslee were a JOY to photograph.  Mom Lisa booked this session to capture their little sweetheart Preslee around the time of her first birthday.  I love working with creative women like Lisa who baked/iced the cake for the smash, sourced Preslee’s outfits & accessories for the shoot and made the adorable custom tutu.  I […]

This is the family of Wade & Lisa Grimes.  A few years ago, I photographed them as they were expecting their youngest.  Now this family of 5 is taking on adventure after adventure in day-to-day life (I know first hand what an adventure raising three little people can be). Kadence, Ryder and Rowan are three little […]

Keri & Mya’s Estevan Mother Daughter session was a treat to photograph, I knew it would be!  I’ve known Keri since we were teenagers and anyone who knows her will get it when I say…she’s an amazing woman.  Keri has been through a lot these past few years and is doing a wonderful  job of raising […]

Engagement sessions are so great…I get to know the couple, chat about how they first met and the details of their up-coming wedding…and of course have some laughs.  We get warmed up in the photography department, making wedding day photos even more relaxing.  We met at Ryan’s parents farm near Oxbow for the session.  The […]

Life moves VERY fast for me!  With three energetic kids, a home, husband and multi-businesses to take care of…I’m sure you can agree and understand.  Sometimes if you’re not physically around me, getting updates on day-to-day things, I seem a bit out of touch.  But in reality, there’s so much going on, that while I’m excited […]
