Lake Chaparral Calgary Engagement Photos

“I love you more than there are stars in the sky and fish in the sea.”
– Nicholas Sparks

Bryan & Michelle love to travel together, and try to go someplace new every year. This past April, while on a backpacking trip in Asia, Bryan popped the question on a beautiful beach in Thailand! Now they are planning a lakeside wedding for next spring.

They brought along their adorable dog Finnegan for a few photos at Fish Creek Park, and then we played by the Lake at Chaparral, chasing the setting sun and trying not to tip out of a canoe!

Kananaskis Village Engagement Photos

“You keep me safe,

I’ll keep you wild.” 

I first met Phil & Shanna last summer at Brad & Kelci’s Wedding at Pinebrook Golf Club, when Shanna was her brother’s best woman. She rocked out the day with all the guys and gave one of the most brilliantly hilarious speeches I’ve ever heard at a wedding. These two have an infectious energy between them, so I was SO thrilled when they asked me to photograph their wedding next summer.

 Phil & Shanna love hiking together and traveling whenever they have the opportunity. So we went out to Kananaskis Village on a beautiful autumn evening and explored around and soaked up the amazing mountain views.

Calgary Family Connection Photographers

We had an absolutely gorgeous autumn evening in Calgary, and I got to meet up with Ryan & Kelly and their girls for a family connection session at Pearce Estate Park. We searched the ponds for fish and feathers, twirled and jumped around on the docks, and had a lot of tickle fights. These girls had the most amazing laughs and I hope you can see their joy bursting out of these photos.

Photography by Carlin Anquist. I am a Wedding & Family Connection Photographer based in Calgary, AB. If there’s one thing I know from being a mom of two little boys, it’s that life goes by SO fast. I wish that time would slow down enough that I could really be present, and just take joy in the little moments that make up their childhood. It is my aim at every family session to capture the unique connection that you have with your children, so that you can pause for a minute and remember this time, and see yourself as your children see you.

If you would like to schedule a family connection session, or if you would like more information, please send me an email at hello@carlinanquist.com. I would love to hear what you love about your family!

Delta South Calgary Wedding Photographer

“In you, I’ve found the love of my life, and my closest, truest friend.”

I arrived at Chantelle’s room at the Delta South hotel to find her and her sister relaxing and eating a delicious breakfast. They were so relaxed and were having the best time just hanging out with each other and enjoying the day.

Pete and Chantelle chose to have an intimate first look at Fish Creek Park before the ceremony. Just as Pete turned around to see his beautiful bride, in perfect timing, the wind picked up and showered them with gorgeous autumn leaves. Pete exclaimed “I never cry!” as he wiped his misty eyes and his face lit up with joy. As we were taking a few photos, I told Pete that his bride was absolutely stunning. His response? “I know! I don’t think she knows! We better get to the ceremony and seal this thing before she realizes!”

At the ceremony, Pete stood at the front and twiddled his thumbs in eager anticipation of finally tying the knot with his love. Pete & Chantelle recited their vows, exchanged solid walnut wooden rings (that Pete MADE himself!), symbolically merged their lives in a sand ceremony, and sealed it with a kiss.

The guests were greeted at their reception with a handmade wooden seating chart (again… Pete’s got mad skills), and the bride and groom joined their guests for cocktails before dinner. The evening was full of laughter, friendship and, dancing, and I was honoured to have been there to capture it.

Chantelle & Pete – you two have quickly become some of my favourite people. You both have such kind hearts and an awesome sense of humour;) Thank you for trusting me with these precious memories, and I hope that you enjoy reliving your incredible wedding day! Much love, Carlin

“how strange to dream of you… even when I’m wide awake…”

Chelsea & Jeremy are best friends. On the night of their first date, they drove around all night until the sun came up, simply because they didn’t want to say goodbye. They share a love of 80’s hair bands and a deeper love for one another. So on a beautiful fall day, they stood in front of their family and vowed to be best friends for the rest of their lives. They carried some of their favourite songs close at hand, in the form of their flowers, which Chelsea’s mom made from sheet music.

They walked down the aisle in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Rundleview Park in Canmore. They asked their family and friends to participate in a traditional “ring warming ceremony”; saying a blessing for the couple as the rings were passed from guest to guest. Even though the smoke obscured the mountain views in a haze, the love between Chelsea & Jeremy shone clear for everyone to see. The new couple was pronounced, and they sealed their vows with a kiss. As they were signing the register, a breeze showered everyone with the falling autumn leaves.

We spent some time playing in the trees, and capturing the magical red light that came as a result of the smokey atmosphere. Chelsea would look at Jeremy, scrunch up her nose at him, and I knew that they were so absolutely in love.

Their reception was held at the Coast Hotel, and guests were seated at tables named after their favourite bands. Chelsea & Jeremy rocked out the air guitar during their first dance, and each guest went home with a Soundtrack of their first 5 years together. They danced the night away with their favourite people and lived happily ever after.

Chelsea & Jeremy – thank you both SO much for allowing me into your lives to capture these amazing memories for you. It was truly my honour.

Much love, Carlin
