Megan + Forbes | Engagement

Megan and Forbes came all the way from Lloydminster for the day to allow us to capture their engagement photos. Megan chose the lovely Whitemud Park for the photos which at this time of year had a mixture of fall colours, earthy tones and a little bit of snow. The park is scattered with foot bridges, covered trails, a winding creek and wild life.  

We had a great time with this beautiful couple and it was a great reminder on why we love what we do. 

Congratulations Megan and Forbes. We can't wait for your wedding in July.

2016 First Truck Drive Fore A Cure Golf Tournament

2016 First Truck Drive Fore A Cure Golf Tournament

This week I was given the opportunity to photograph the 2016 First Truck Drive Fore A Cure Golf Tournament at the Belvedere Golf and Country Club in support of the MS Society. The tournament raises money for multiple sclerosis research in the fight to cure the disease that affects over 100,000 Canadians. Funding is needed for researchers to continue their work to find a cause of multiple sclerosis, develop better treatments for managing multiple sclerosis and to ultimately cure the disease. Events like this coupled with the continuous generous support of Albertans is moving researchers closer and closer to their goals.

One of the most impactful things that I got to witness at the tournament was the research that the University of Alberta is conducting in the search of the cause of multiple sclerosis. Prior to teeing off on the tenth hole, golfers were given the opportunity to discuss research with a pair of University of Alberta researchers and how their work is impacting the search for the cure. It gave golfers and donors a way to see the impact that their generosity has in a local research environment like the University of Alberta. 

Prior to the start of the tournament the area experienced some intense lightning and rain but about an hour or so before the shotgun start, the skies cleared up and the morning was perfect for golf. Hitting the course in support of the MS Society was 144 golfers who would be treated to a great day of golf followed by an amazing steak supper and a auction that included items generously donated to support multiple sclerosis research. 

Photographing the days events was awesome! The joy of the golfers, even the ones who may have spent more time in the rough then the fairway, the enthusiasm of the volunteers and the hole sponsors made the day on the links that much more enjoyable. 

Here are some of the photos I captured from the day, hopefully capturing what a great event this was.

Tessa & Warren

It was an absolute pleasure to be able to capture Tessa and Warren's big day a couple of weeks ago in a small ceremony held on the homestead that the happy couple will start their lives together on. 

As with most small town weddings, it was truly fantastic to see a large number of people from the community in which Tessa and Warren call home join them and their family to celebrate. The meal was prepared locally, and if you have ever been to a small town wedding you know just how good those suppers with locally grown food are.

One of the most amazing things we get to capture as photographers is the first time the groom gets to see the bride. Tessa and Warren had a spectacular first look prior to the ceremony that showcased how deeply in love these two are. 

We want to wish Tessa, Warren and their one year old son Brody all of the best in the future and congratulations on your special day! Thank you for letting us capture your love for one another.
