Wedding at The Leaf + Qualico Centre | Arianna + Curtis

Wedding Sneak Peek

February 18th, 2023 was a day I was looking forward to for so long! Especially since meeting Arianna and Curtis for their engagement session back in November. They’re such a sweet couple that bring a fun energy with them. They think of others first and it made my job way too easy. 

We went to Birds Hill Park for their engagement photos hoping for some cute fall photos. The morning of the shoot the skies were mostly clear. That was up until an hour before the photo shoot it decided to flurry the hardest I’ve ever seen. By the time we were ready to start taking photos the ground was already covered in a thin layer of snow. Although the conditions weren’t exactly what we wanted we still left with some of the most stunning photos ever. Arianna and Curtis knocked it out of the park.

Wedding Day

I always get so excited on a wedding day morning. It’s like the feeling right before a big sports game. That’s why I call it game day. Anyway it’s not about me. We got the church where the ceremony was going to be held and the Ceremony set up was stunning. There’s been some church weddings that could have used some Pinterest aesthetics but I was so very happy about this one! On the stage they had a big cross with a curtain strung up behind it. 

Both me and my second shooter Sarah started off by taking some candids of the guests that arrived early. Before long we started the ceremony. The ceremony was really sweet, it’s always nice when the officiant doesn’t use the same script but can make the speech personalized. After the ceremony we gave everyone plenty of time to catch up and chat before starting family photos. We ended up getting ahead of schedule (This never happens) So we all had some extra time to chill before heading to Red River College for some photos.

Winnipeg Wedding at the Leaf

At Red River College we spent some time taking Bridal Party photos and Couple photos. With this slow schedule it was nice not to feel rushed with the photos. We found some chairs we were able to do some cute sitting poses. Can’t wait to show you those. Much of RRC has an industrial feel to it so we tried to go along with that theme and a mix of some moody/vibey photos as well as some happy and bright wedding photos. Knowing that The Leaf was next on the list we had to save some poses for that.

The Leaf is possibly one of my favourite places to shoot in Winter. Not only because I hate taking photos in the cold but also because the Leaf is stunning! The light comes in so perfectly. I was concerned with how hard it would be to take group photos at the Leaf. I didn’t want to ruin the experience for anyone else just visiting and I had to find someone to fit everyone. I also didn’t want to make everyone stay in the hot humid area too long. 

We took some immediate family photos and then some bridal party photos and ended with some couple photos before moving to the less humid area. An obvious pick for me was the vine wall. If you’ve been to the Leaf you know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t been there then I strongly recommend it! It is a big enough area that we could fit the bridal party and it’s a beautiful background. I think they turned out great and the bridal party + Arianna and Curtis did so well. I always appreciate people trying to make my job easier and still having a good time.

We then headed to the Qualico Centre for the reception. While we were walking in it again was dumping snow (Kind of fitting) We took some cute photos under a street lamp. After we went inside I let them have time chatting with everyone and resorted to candid’s at this point. It’s always so nice to see a couple surrounded by such a great community that’s there to help them celebrate. This was very evident with the heartfelt speeches. Got to chat with so many awesome people at the wedding! Overall it was an amazing day and I’m so so happy for these two. Days like this make it so fun to do what I do. It’s a blessing really. 

Arianna and Curtis I wish you two all the best with this new chapter! I’m so excited to get you more photos. Thank you for being amazing clients and friends 🙂

Best Photos Of The Year 2022

What a year! Before I start showing off my amazing clients I had this year I want to share a little bit about my experience. Now if you find this boring you can go ahead and skip to the photos but this year was special to me.

Okay here’s the details: I shot 32 weddings in 2022 and close to 100 couples. That’s an insane amount of people I get to cross paths with. There’s always some funny and stressful stories that go with shooting this many weddings (You can ask me later)

Now I’m allowed to get sentimental. This is my blog so deal with it. Meeting some of these people has been one of the highlights from this year. Some people I’ll hopefully stay friends with. I don’t take it lightly that so many people trusted me with their priceless photos. If I took photos for you in 2022 I just wanted to say THANK YOU!

To each person that served cheese cake I also wanted to say thank you. You are the reason I show up to Weddings. (Jokes) 

Okay enough from me, here’s some of my favourite from 2022. I’m only showing Wedding photos on this blog because there was simply too many sessions to fit into a blog. So look out for another post 🙂

Just a warning the photos below may take some loading depending on your internet speed 🙂

I obviously couldn’t include all my favourites, but this serves as a mini recap of the thousands of photos I’ve taken. It really excites me looking forward to 2023 and what it could include!

If you booked me for 2023 or beyond just let me tell you that it’s such a blessing to be able to get a little glimpse into your story and be trusted with your photos. 

Okay that’s all for now! Love you guys! 

My Experience Shooting for Bud Light Seltzer

Aw Heck Ya! Wedding photographer turned NHL Mascot Photographer.


Let’s start at the beginning. I was minding my own business (probably editing photos) and I got a call from Toronto. The man asked if I shoot cooperate events, in which I replied that I do! He went on to ask if I was free and some other details. I then budded in and asked what this cooperate event was? He said he is with Bud Light and they need someone to take photos of their mascot at the next Winnipeg Jets hockey game. I’m no mascot photographer but of course this sounded interesting so I said I would do it!

I had some emails back and forth between Bud Light and myself and they told me to meet in the stadium about an hour before it was open to the public. I was told to use the side door. I’ve never been to a NHL game before and I was definitely not confident where the side door would be. With no reply to the email I told myself “Screw it” and thought I would find it myself

Game Day 

I won’t bare you with the details about how the power steering in my car suddenly stopped working and how I had to drive the families old farm truck through downtown trying to find a parkade that had room for a tall truck. I managed to get there with some time to spare and I walked over to what I expected to be the side door. It was not… I asked around and managed to find it. It was these two unlabeled metal  doors hidden around the corner. I went in and the only thing they checked was my vaccination card. I walked down the stairs and found myself wall to wall with what felt like hundreds of people. I went through security and I was the only person with a giant backpack. So they pulled me aside and searched the backpack but again no one asked why I was there. I simply just walked in…

I found the Bud Light team and we got to work. I met the mascot and got some shots before the fans were let in. After a couple photos we were given a break and so I went into the stadium and sat down for a bit. This was actually one of the biggest highlights. The stadium was empty… So cool!

As guests started to flow through the gates, the mascot Seltzy got busy! Meeting fans, Playing Games, and Dancing. I basically just followed up around for this! This is where I got a little peak into the mascot world. Turns out there’s something called a mascot handler. This persons job is to keep the mascot on track and in the right place. Between reading the schedule and radioing with the cameras and telling Seltzy which way to look and wave, they had their work cut out for them. I went with Seltzy from the Nose Bleeds to the VIP section. 

Of course I wasn’t about to go to an NHL game with all my camera equipment without getting some action shots. I made sure during every free moment to get some hockey photos. I thought they turned out pretty good! 

Overall it was just a very fun / weird experience. Definitely one I wont be forgetting. I can’t wait for the next memorable shoot to come around!

Grad Photos Winnipeg

It’s that time of the year! But maybe for you it’s your only child graduating! That’s so exciting! Big moments like that deserve to be hung up on your wall! I offer Grad Photos Winnipeg and Manitoba for that exact reason! 

Some Things to Consider

  1. Booking in advance! Sometimes Photographers book up all their grad sessions in January! That’s crazy. You don’t want to miss out on the photographer you want. So make sure you book far enough in advance.
  2. Pick your photographer accordingly to their style. There’s lots of things to consider when booking a photographer, one of the main things to consider is their style. A photographer can’t/wont change their style so your photos look good on your wall. Each photographer has their own style, make sure you book the right one for you!
  3. Location: Your photographer can totally help you out with this! Your blue dress might look really good with the downtown background! Or a white dress with a forest setting. Your photographer will likely have an answer for you!
  4. Time of Day: If possible an evening shoot would be best! Lighting will be softer and so much nicer.

Another great option is buy your parents or grandparents a couple session. I love asking couples that have been married 30+ years how long it’s been since they have had a photo taken together. For most of them they say years and years. A lot of times it takes a little push to get them to get some photos together.

Places to Visit in Banff

If you’re reading this you’re probably planning a trip to one of my favourite places on earth. Lucky you! Or maybe you just want to start planning your dream trip. Either way I wanted to share some places to visit in Banff. 

Avoiding Crowds

Now these spots may not be the best of Banff, but if you’re anything like me then you want a find a way to enjoy Banff without the wall to wall crowds. As a photographer I really prefer not getting people in the photos. So you might want to visit Lake Louise, which is great but I want to share some hidden areas that are stunning!

You’ll be surprised that it’s pretty rare for tourists to leave the paved paths. So if you’re interested in finding your own hidden gems then find a path or road and get lost! Be adventurous and you’ll find your own private spot under the mountains! 

Vermillion Lakes

Easily one of my favourite places in Banff. Located 5 minutes from Banff. You can find these cute little docks along the lakes. You can often find people bringing their canoes to these lakes. 10/10 would go again!

Mount Norquay Look Out

Okay this is another must! You can drive up to a look out where you can see over the Vermillion Lakes as well as Banff. During sunset this location is stunning. When I went I was able to see a rainbow over Banff as well as a big heard of mountain goats.

Lake Minnewanka 

This area definitely had some tourists walking around. However we had enough space that we were able to enjoy the area. On Lake Minnewanka you can find the docks. This is another on my list of favourites! The view was so amazing and the rocks on the shore just added so much. It’s hard to describe how much of a wow-factor this area had. 

Bow Valley Parkway

On your way to Johnston Canyon you got to stop by this meadow! The photo below might be my favourite from my entire trip. I attached the coordinates from the location below. You can copy and paste those into your map app.

Getting Lost

Honestly It was so special to share moments under the mountains with no crowds around holding up their smart phone. I know that isn’t something that bugs everyone but if you’re anything like me then finding your own path is a great way to do it. I encourage you to find a cool road or trail and honestly just get lost. You’ll find the coolest spots! 

Travel Safe!
Each year I try to make it out to Alberta, but more specifically Banff. It’s so special to be able to capture engagements, couples, and even weddings! If you’re interested in booking a session check it out here!
