So I might have been a
little lot over anxious to edit Jesse & Heidi’s wedding photos. I only shot the session Wednesday eve, and already I have a blog post for you! It’s a record for me, I’m not gonna lie. See here’s the thing… most weddings I shoot are mid-day. Harsh sunlight, squinty eyes, you know what I mean. So when we talked about shooting in the evening, I was happy to say the least. Especially with all the sunlight Edmonton has been getting lately (not including today). Evening shoots are always amazing. Soft yellow light, long shadows. Mix it with a wedding dress and tux – even better!
Jesse & Heidi were actually married earlier this summer, but wanted to save their intimate couples session until now. So after 3 attempts to re-schedule, we finally got the chance! What a way to spend the evening! Enjoy.
Having two kids of my own, I know the excitement of pregnancy news! When Journey asked me to shoot her maternity photos, I was so happy. How lucky am I to be able to capture this special event for an awesome couple?? I can’t wait to meet their little one this October.
On a side note.. you’ll notice the Hotel Macdonald in a few of the frames near the end. I found out later that this is where Kris proposed to Journey. It’s a little something special they can share with baby down the road :)
I was thrilled when Jillian phoned me up one day. She was newly engaged and wanted me to be their photographer. Of course I said yes. So a couple weeks ago I went down to Saskatoon to shoot their engagement session. What a gorgeous evening. We shot for a couple hours on her property… beautiful trees, pasture, old buildings… it was the best.
We finished just before the rain came, walking back to the house with Orry plucking away on his guitar. We sat around the kitchen table as the rain poured, sharing stories and talking about wedding plans. It’s a night I wont forget for a long time.
Can’t wait to get back in August and do it all over again.

It’s been a long winter friends! A cold, dark, uninspiring winter. Now that the weather here in Edmonton is finally shaping up, I am itching to get behind the lens. So much in fact, that I had to do a quick shoot with Amanda last Thursday, along with a friend of mine Melissa. What a way to kick off summer!

It is with happy HAPPY hearts that my wife and I welcome our little girl into the world. Willow Grace Walker is finally here and she’s perfect! The last two weeks are a bit of a blur… between sleepless nights, many diapers, and a not-so-impressed-about-it big brother. I wouldn’t change a thing though – she’s a beautiful little human and I’m so thrilled to be her daddy. I can’t wait to see what the next few months bring.
On a side note – let me tell you how hard the image below was to tackle. I had it all in my head… how it would look. Of course the setup was a breeze. Placing things just so… getting it ready etc. But then insert a 3 day old infant. Hungry, cranky, and not pleased to be placed on a hard floor. Let’s just say by the time I was done, I was also cranky. And hungry. And sweaty. I took about 30-40 frames, and this is the only one that turned out. FYI – she’s yawning, not crying. I swear ;)
Baby Willow – welcome! I love you more than you know.
