Saturday was a wonderful day for a wedding, and Jeremiah and Martha were the most inspiring couple! I will admit that I have been known to tear up during the reception speeches at past weddings, but it is very rare for me to cry during a wedding ceremony. Jeremiah and Martha spoke the most beautiful words during their vows, and the emotion that was expressed brought tears to my eyes. The sincerity and words of love only continued into the evenings speeches, as I photographed family and friends express their love for this amazing couple. Jeremiah and Martha are good people, who live truth and love in each step along their journey and it was truly an honor to be part of this special day as they start their lives together!















Last weekend, despite all the rain and snow, I had the opportunity to shoot Jarrett and Jackie’s Engaged! shoot. Back when these two commissioned me to shoot their wedding, I knew that we were a good match. They are fun, and stylish and just awesome people! I came home after this shoot so excited for them.  In the two hours that we spent together, it was obvious to me that they have made the right choice to get married. They look at each other with so much love and passion. Their laughs are real, and the touch is kind.

Jackie and Jarrett have answered a few questions to give us a glimpse into their relationship. Thanks guys for being so candid and fun to work with! I look forward to your wedding later this season.

edmonton_engagement_photos_10Do you remember the moment you fell in Love with your fiance?

Jarrett: Absolutely! It was way back in high school and i still remember the first time i told her. I think she was drunk off those big wine coolers and i definitely had a couple drinks as well. I thought about it the next day, and realized i actually meant what I said and i haven’t look back since.

Jackie:  haha  – that was a long time ago, I am not sure if I remember the exact moment I fell “in-love”. However, I do remember the first time he told me he loved me – it was on the bank of a creek at a party after about 2 months of dating.
