Moraine Lake Wedding Photographer

 Take note, guys, if you’re trying to impress a girl, it wouldn’t hurt to do it in one of the most breathtaking places in the world. It worked for these two! Sam took Anna out to this majestic lake in the heart of the Rocky Mountains for their very first date, and now here they are preparing to be married in a few short weeks.

It was the first day of summer, and we had some pretty decent weather in Calgary, but when we got to Moraine Lake we could feel a chill in the air. We made the climb up the rock pile, started taking the first few photos, and were surprised with a little snowfall!  It added just a little bit of extra magic to this incredible engagement session. We climbed a bit further for some incredible views of the lake and got caught in a wind storm, but the smiles never left their faces. They kept each other warm, and Sam gave Anna his jacket like the real gentleman that he is:)

Anna & Sam – thank you both SO much for allowing me to capture your love in a place that means so much to you.  I am so excited that I get to photograph you as you become husband and wife!

McKenzie Towne Church Wedding Photographer

What a beautiful and joy-filled wedding this was! From the moment I stepped into Emily’s home I was greeted with nothing but kindness. Emily’s mom told me that I was family, and that I was welcome to help myself to anything that I needed. Emily was so calm and was truly enjoying herself on the morning of her wedding. Her hair and makeup was finished before everyone else’s, and as she sat waiting to get into her wedding dress, her bridesmaids asked her how she was feeling. Her response was, “I’m great! I get to marry Nathan today!”

After she was all laced up and ready to go, we made our way to McKenzie Towne Church. The bridesmaids gathered around Emily and prayed for her as she prepared to marry her best friend. Emily’s dad walked her down the aisle, and then with tears rolling down his face, sang her a song he’d written as he gave her away.

Nathan & Emily exchanged vows and rings as their friends and family looked on with joy. They were pronounced husband and wife, and Nathan picked up his new bride and carried her down the aisle to the Star Wars Theme Song.

It was a hot, 30+ degree day in Calgary, so we sought out a bit of shade at Fish Creek Park to take our formal photos. Emily & Nathan even brought along some swords that they use for LARPing!

Next it was time for dinner! The newlywed couple made their entrance at the Canyon Meadows Community Hall under showers of confetti. We ate a traditional French breakfast of sweet and savoury crepes, one of Emily’s favourites from her time in Montreal.

And, as I was eagerly anticipating, the bride & groom had their first dance together – an upbeat swing dance! Emily changed into a shorter cocktail dress and birdcage veil so that she could dance the night away! In fact, 2 members of the bridal party gave a swing dance lesson to the guests while we were away taking photos, so that everyone could enjoy the party!

Emily & Nathan – thank you both for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing time in your lives. You both are wonderfully kind and thoughtful people, and I’m so thrilled that you found each other. May God richly bless your marriage in the coming years. I hope we meet again soon!

Calgary Family Photographers

It’s been nearly 2 years since Elizabeth and Stacey’s Wedding in Canmore, and now they’re a family of 4! Dani has grown into a spunky little 2 year old full of personality, and baby Felicity is enjoying her snuggles and slobbery kisses.

We spent an evening together at Nose Hill Park, just exploring the beautiful nature and seeing what there was to discover. It is always such a pleasure for me to see my past wedding clients again and document their growing families. Elizabeth and Stacey, you two sure make cute kids!

East Village Engagement Photos

I first met Travis & Chelsea last summer at Chris & Kristina’s Wedding at Apple Creek Golf Course in Airdrie. They were both in the bridal party and we had such a fun day together making memories with their entire group of friends. I was thrilled when they contacted me to photograph their wedding this fall, and we spent a gorgeous summer night strolling around East Village and laughing until our stomachs hurt;)

These two randomly met one summer during a camping trip with their respective friends. Somehow they ended up exchanging numbers and several weeks later Travis asked Chelsea out on a date. He picked her up on his motorbike, parking down the street so that her mom wouldn’t be concerned for her safety, and the rest is history!

Travis & Chelsea – thank you for rolling with all the crazy things I asked you to do and for embracing the awkward! You guys seriously rocked this out and I’m so excited to do it again in a couple months as you become husband and wife. Much Love, Carlin

Baby Alexis | Calgary Baby Photographer

Introducing my newest little niece, Alexis!

Alexis is such a calm baby, and has the most perfect little bow lips. I got to photograph her when she was just 12 days old and she was perfectly content to be moved around or to just lay in her crib. Jennifer is so excited to have a baby sister and regularly asks to hold “baby Lexi”.

I love how Daniel & Jessica decorated Lexi’s nursery in pinks and golds with wood accents. The pallet wood name plaque surrounded by gold polka dots is such a great feature wall, and gives the space a bright and cheerful feel.

Welcome to the world Alexis! You are so dearly loved already and I can’t wait to take you on an Auntie-Niece date!

Love, Auntie Carlin
