From the Photographer
I grew up in a home filled with cameras, and our family get-together’s almost always included bringing out the slide projector sharing boxes of laughs and memories. This is where my journey started. Along the way I’ve been inspired by the films of John Hughes and Rob Reiner … The style, mood, and cinematography of films like Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Stand By Me nurtured my love of the “abnormal normal” everyday images. This is what I love most about photography, telling these stories. I love capturing joyful, intimate, and sometimes heartbreaking moments. I live between Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, and often photograph weddings throughout Central Alberta including Red Deer, Calgary, Edmonton, Camrose, Leduc, Airdrie, Canmore, Nordegg – well the point is I will travel and thouroughly enjoy exploring this beautiful country we live in. In addition to prairie and mountain weddings, I have really enjoyed travelling and capturing destination weddings. If you would like to see more of my work, feel free to check out my portfolio of work or contact me for a free consultation, I’d love to photograph your special day.
