“The easiest decision that I made was picking my photographer, Kari Burgess from Eternal Reflections Photography. Her work is amazing and hands down she’s the best photographer in Canada. I wanted the photos to have a light, romantic feel and she exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her for any girl’s wedding.” -Tannis.

Tannis + Vedran [Hotel Macdonald Luxury Wedding Photography]

Tannis + Vedran.

Two of the most gracious and kind people on this earth.
The moment I knocked on their Hotel Macdonald hotel room, I was greeted by smiles, laughter and a very cute dog… and a glass of orange juice in a champagne glass.
I knew that this day would be perfect in every way.
Tannis wore a gorgeous cage gown and added a unique touch to her wedding day. Ballet slippers.
How perfect.

All of her bridesmaids/mother and her darling new neice, were there with her helping her get ready.
Of course, Crystal McClung from Perugia Salon did a stunning job on her hair. Everything she creates is a work of art.

The ceremony was intimate and meaningful. With all of their wedding guests standing around them showing their support, with misty eyes. The feeling in that room was speachless.

For formal photos, we went to the U of A Campus, which always creates a beautiful setting for photos. One of my favorites. The unique buildings  with gorgeous pathways always add beautiful dimension to photos.

Her Reception was at the Hotel Macdonald in the Wedgewood room where Kristina McAnally waved her magic wand and *poof* everything was GORGEOUS!!
She does such a wonderful job designing and decorating.

Tannis + Vedran, I truly wish you all the best in your life together. I am so grateful to get to know you both.
I am so touched by the love you have for eachother.
May you have many adventures and travels together and fulfill all your dreams.

Tuscany Italy Villa Wedding Photography [Meg & Mike]

Italy is like nothing I have ever seen before. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth, which is why Meghan and  Mike decided to have their beautiful wedding at a Villa in the Tuscany hills just outside of Siena.
Their wedding could not have been more perfect.
They opted to have their ceremony as the sun was setting, which allowed for beautiful lighting. The Italian tuscan sun is gorgeous, and every photographers dream!
This wedding was romantic, chic and delicate. Each and every detail was planned out perfectly- even with a childhood picture of Mike on Meghans bouquet.
Italy is becoming more and more popular for destination weddings. Its rustic charm is pulling brides from all over the world to celebrate their love.

Congratulation Meg & Mike.
May you have many wonderful years of bliss…

The beautiful Villa that Meg and Mike (plus all the guests) stayed at.

Isn’t it breathtaking?

Meg and Mike wrote thank you cards to all their guests on the back of cute Italian post cards.Her GORG-eous dress.

I Love that Mikes suit was made in Italy. Gotta love Armani!

The colors in her bouquet and in his boutineer matched the Villa perfectly.

Meg rocked a beautiful high fashion ‘vogue-y’ veil!

They are such a beautiful couple!

The famous Tuscany view (no, really it is famous- its on post cards!!) where Meg had her ceremony.

Mike vows were so heartfelt. I think it brought tears to everyone, especially Meg.

Proud parents.

Cute details pre-reception.  Meg made her Italian wedding very memorable.

The lovely tablescape.

The Alfresco dining was a perfect ending to perfect wedding.

Her bouquet with the childhood photo of Mike.

Meg had two looks for her wedding. So we decided to make the most of the delicious sunlight and get a few more of her and Mike

Meg workin’ the hot red lips and birdcage veil!

The grapevines in Italy are a perfect backdrop for any wedding photo!

It was an honor to be able to work with her on this session. I have been wanting to for awhile.

Victoria Luxury Wedding Photographer | Christine & John | Inn At Laurel Point Wedding|

Christine and John. Two of my favorite people.  I met them for the first time while photographing their engagement session last year.

The wedding day preparation began at the Laurel Point Inn in Victoria, complete with wine, smiles, and a breathtaking ocean view.
Of course, no bride is complete without the magical touch of Sharon Rai Makeup Artistry. She made sure that all the ladies looked fabulous.
Having their wedding located in Victoria was a dream of theirs. And it was flawless.
Every detail that they incorporated into their wedding defined the word ‘glitz’, which made my heart swoon. As soon as I saw her shoes, clutch and her GORGEOUS wedding gown, I knew we were kindred spirits.
John and Christine, thank you for being you. It was such a pleasure capturing your love.
