The exciting day finally arrived for Steven and Amanda. The wedding was simple and elegant, with a beautiful bride and bridesmaids. We took the wedding party to Prince’s Island Park in downtown Calgary. We’ve had heavy smoke in Calgary from forest fires in B.C.. I was concerned about the effect of the smoke on the […]

Had the weather co-operated, the ceremony was planned to be […]

Fozia and Mike were a delight to shoot. The mix of culture made it easy to be creative and take some different shots than in traditional American weddings. Part of the wedding included a sand ceremony where each member of the family poured sand into a bottle, symbolic of the unifying of the family. It’s […]

I shot the wedding formals and reception for the son of my friend Wendy, whose web site I also created and maintain.  The photos were taken overlooking downtown Calgary from the Crescent Road chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  The couple is very photogenic and were great to work with. For […]
