Calgary Intimate Wedding Photographer - Best of 2018

As an intimate destination wedding and  adventure elopement photographer, I had an amazing year full of travel and adventuring to new locations. I was lucky enough to skip most of the winter in Calgary and spent it on the beaches, in the the jungle and exploring the rugged coastlines and mountain tops of New Zealand. I also was lucky enough to photograph some amazing weddings on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo, Victoria, and the Comox Valley as well as at Hillside Lodges in Golden, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and all around Banff and Canmore. My favourite memories were spent connecting deeply with nature, hiking through the trail systems around Queenstown and conquering Roys Peak and doing the Abel Tasman. I also took two road trips driving out from Calgary to Vancouver Island and made a lot of stops along the way. Finally getting to camp out at Sombrio Beach for the first time in years (my favourite place in the world) and I can’t wait to go to French Beach to photograph an amazing West Coast wedding there this year! 

As you may be able to tell I love to travel. So it’s probably no surprise that I have a few epic destinations on my radar this year. The most exciting travel plans that I have so far are a trip planned to Europe! I’m going to be exploring Ireland (hello Cliffs of Moher and the Giant’s Causeway!!) as well as Wales & the UK and Germany and Denmark! I would love to photograph a moody elopement in any of those places so shoot me an email if you or someone you know is looking for an adventurous wedding photographer to explore with! Besides that, I am spending most of my days shooting some fun portrait work and I have started offering boudoir which is an exciting new venture for me! I can’t wait to see what amazing things 2019 has to bring!
