Vance + Kari Oster

Oh wedding season is coming to an end. Only three more weddings to go – and ones in Cabo ! Brett and myself have been so busy lately shooting and editing, writing down business ideas, getting props together for future projects, booking 2013/2014 weddings, planning engagement shots, going for coffee with clients.. it doesn’t end.. and I couldn’t be happier doing all of it. I know it may seem overwhelming but we love it.. we love whenw we finish a project that took us weeks to do.. the feeling of success is like how you feel when good endorphins kick in after a tough workout ! I figure with each project we complete.. we learn – from photos that take even my breath away.. or from the failures of having your ISO too high or your aperture too low.. we get better. I feel we get so much closer to where we want to be in this business.. I know we’re still far away.. but can you imagine after all this hard work .. ? We’ll be on a permanent high! haha! Anyways.. heres a completed project that I LOVED working on.

So it’s OSTER. Not OYSTER. Haha. Kari + Vance.. if anyone knows these two then they know that the word soulmate is used best to describe them. High school sweethearts are rare these days just like Vance and Kari’s love for each other – it’s real, strong, emotional, and unwavering. The venue they chose was in a small town called Waskesiu, Saskatchewan where they vacationed many summers previous. Beautiful and quaint.:)I was so happy when they asked me to be their photographer, because I knew that their beauty would be so easy to capture. From Kari’s princess dress, to Vance’s vintage gangster look.. I loved it.

I’ll also have you know.. I shot this wedding completely by myself. Brett was actually the best man (isn’t he handsome).

Anyways, without further a-due .. Vance & Kari !

Melane - I never thought that pictures could capture the perfect day, but Cheryl somehow managed to do just that.

Cheryl’s pictures are unique and fun….just like Kari and Vance.

Thank you

Alie, Babes, and Pups!

So for my last few days of living in Edmonton, I got together with one of my favourites! Alie! She is expecting a little bundle of joy soon so we figured we should capture this wonderful moment in time. Alie also has two beautiful vizsla pups, Lenny and Olive. It turned out to be such a fun and creative shoot – posing in shrubs, tricks with the dog, twirling around with scarves.:)Miss you Alie!

Jessie & Cale

This wedding was so beautiful – got to shoot in the beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico at the Dreams resort. Jessie is seriously the modern day snow white – just ridiculously beautiful and Cale – tall, dark, handsome. The weather was just perfect for their day, the ceremony was beautiful, the reception was unlike anything I’ve ever seen – fire show & fireworks ! Just wonderful! Thank you so much for letting me capture this day Jessie & Cale! <3
