Gorgeous Sabina | TTD (Trash The Dress) session | Calgary wedding photographer

This was one of the most fun photo shoots! Sabina contacted me a few weeks prior the shoot and we were talking about how we are going to do this session. The weather in Calgary is not very cooperative and we had to postpone it for a week and we both basically were standing by the phone, so in case the weather will be good - I will pack all my gear and we will go right away :) Luckily for both of us Calgary treated us with +25C on the day of the photo shoot! And how happy and excited we both were! And before the photo shoot Sabina told me that her and her husband are expecting their first baby :) I can't wait to see the cute baby bump and the baby :)

And now - the pictures :)

Little Miss E | Calgary kids photographer

Here is another beautiful family :) Little Miss E was super adorable and fun to be around :) She did so great even though she was getting a little sick :( Poor little girl :( But we sure had lots of fun that day :) Check it out

Lindsay and Mike | Wedding Day | Calgary wedding photographer

I know...I should be punished for not blogging for THAT long...but I will try to catch up :)

You guys remember Lindsay and Mike, when we did their engagement session back in May. So, on a very beautiful, although not so warm, Calgary day of September 18th I had greatest pleasure to photograph their amazing wedding! Right from the start, when Lindsay got home from the hairdresser, the day was filled with laughter, love and brightest smiles in the whole world! The ceremony was very beautiful and sincere, and every single person in that room was touched by the love between that gorgeous bride and handsome groom :) I always knew that Lindsay was an extraordinary person, but during the reception I learned even more about her: she is not only an amazing person, but also greatest friend to have. She helped her friend through his toughest time in his life - going through cancer...She never walked away from the frightening life situations, instead she made it look much better and easier for everyone. Mike is the one of the most loyal, honest and life loving person and sure made a very handsome groom, who will always be by her side and will always protect her.

I wish you guys all the happiness in the world! You two deserve it!

They are red velvet with cheese cake top and, as he is the biggest book worm I have ever met, books and wormies on the top :P YumM! I almost eat them all on the way home :D Smell sooooo good! And they are home made too!

My Auntie Betty who is married to uncle Peter is the only is the only direct sister to my mother alive and they have both been a big part of life.

Micah, the groom, was born and raised in Calgary and has a brother and one parent his mother as his father is deceased too."
In Canada, she continued to learn and push herself through school and her new life, and eventually found her true love. So, here were are today, watching this beautiful couple get married and starting their own family. Congratulations to you guys! Have a long and happy life together!

{B + M} | The W Day | High River wedding photographer

Yet another wonderful wedding of two beautiful people! Last Saturday I was a lucky girl to photograph such a beautiful wedding in High River. The weather before that day was just, let's say, not very pretty...all the smoke from BC covered the whole sky making everything looks so dull. On the wedding day the sky cleared out a bit and during the ceremony the sun came right through the gazebo and it was so beautiful and mesmerizing! It was a great day and it will be a beautiful "ever after" for this incredibly wonderful couple, that are so in love! Congratulations for you guys! All the best!

Where and How to save your money | Calgary wedding photographer

As many of you know, I am getting married to a wonderful man this summer and, as most of us I don't want to over pay for things without any need for it.
I did a lot of research and found following places to save your buck:

  • To alter your wedding gown: most of the places charge ridiculous amount of money for simple thing. By being lucky I found this girl, Shannon, from Motek Clothing Co., who altered my Alfred Sung dress for $52.50 (including GST and custom ties for my long train!) She is awesome and conveniently located in the Fashion Central on Stephens Avenue and first street (Down town).
          Monday- Friday 10AM – 6PM
          Saturday 10.30AM – 6PM
         
         Call for more info: 403.266.3887

  • Another place to save some money is the registries! When applying for a marriage license you might want to shop around. The government cost of it is only $40, registries charging their own price, depending either on weather conditions, or how they felt that day…it might vary from $67 to crazy $120! For the same piece of paper! So, the cheapest I was able to find is the one on McLeod Trail (4660 MacLeod Trail SW) for $66.25

Good luck!

{AG Plateria - Silver Boutique} | Calgary photographer

Last Friday, it was my absolute pleasure to photograph one of the most enjoyable places for a girl to shop in Calgary – The AG Silver Boutique! Yes, I am a girly girl sometimes! :D What can I say? I love pretty, shiny and tasteful things! :)
The owner of this place, Jose Luis, is a very friendly and welcoming person. When I first stepped into the store, I thought that it was probably a super expensive place, as everything looked just so amazingly beautiful that it had to be expensive...I was wrong! Prices were more than acceptable and the quality of the items was remarkable (my friends know my expensive taste for things :) )! So, I asked Jose Luis where he gets these beautiful creations. “It is a family business” he said “And we design and create our own pieces. That’s what makes them unique” ...and I completely agree with him.

You can find this beautiful store conveniently located in the heart of downtown Calgary on Stephens Avenue (212, 805 - First Street SW – on 8th Ave.) – Fashion Central on the Upper Level. Mon - Sat 11am - 6pm; you will need to make an appointment if you would like to visit the store on Sunday.
