Sam + Michaela :: Engaged

Monday, April 21, 2014

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I will never tire of hanging out with the amazing couples that I get to. I have felt so very blessed that in moving my business to Edmonton I have only had more opportunities to shoot in new locations with new people. Sam and Michaela took me to this amazing location and I about DIED when I saw the forest of trees.

If you like Lorde, you're bound to like Broods too! Coincidentally they are also from New Zealand too!

Happy Monday!

Black Yaya :: Music Monday

Monday, April 7, 2014

So about 7 years ago, I was dragged out on a Friday or Saturday night by my good friend Alida to a "social club" in downtown Calgary called BrokenCity. I remember not being excited about being put into a social situaion where I don't know most of the people but I knew Alida wasn't going to let me bail because I'm an introverted lame-oh. Luckily, I've got some great friends. I remember the venue was super small, and I had no idea what to expect from the musical guest we had all come to see. There was some opening act that we all enjoyed so-so. We were all hanging around chatting over of drinks of pop and water and then, the main act came on. His name was Montag and he was so very very different then anything I'd ever heard on the radio. I was basically the only person on the floor, about 3 feet in front of him, dancing like Carlton from Fresh Prince. I loooved it! He was this one-man band with a voice synthesizer, a small toy-like piano, and I maybe an accordian? I was literally on clound nine!

Since then, Alida has continued to enlighten me with good music and as well as my other good friend Layla. See, I've got these two hipster best friends who know good music like nobody else I know. Getting together with them and sharing music we've all found is one of my favorite things to do!

I have been contemplating a regular weekly post for about two years now. I have never been able to come up with something that I know I'd be happy to keep posting about though. When a couple of friends asked me for some new music recently, I figured I can share the stuff I've found with any of you wonderful people who stop by my little home on the web who may be interested.

So I present to you, in no particular order, the first installment of Music Monday.

First up, because it is currently 13 degrees in Edmonton right now. Can I get a whoop whoop? I thought I'd share a favorite upbeat fun tune you can spring clean too!

Happy Monday everyone!

Tycee + Connor :: engaged

Sunday, March 30, 2014

There are some people you meet and you just know they are great people. Tycee was one of those people for me when I first met her. When she messaged me about being engaged I was so excited for her! I only hoped her fiancé was as great as she was and he just so happened to be!

They are getting married on a day where I am already currently booked, but we still were able to get together for engagement pictures that are just some of my favorite images! Two bucket list items were checked. Pictures of a couple skating together and an indoor shoot. 

We shot at Hawrelak Park and Duchess Bakery ( which is ahhhmazing by the way) both in Edmonton.
