For Trish and Shane: a five minute preview of your wedding day proofs! I am *so close* to having these finished but in the meantime I thought I’d give you a glimpse to tie you over.

What an amazing day - you two are a great couple and I wish you all the happiness in the world. I am so happy I was able to be there to capture your wedding day. My toes have finally un-thawed and Jenn has reported to me that she can now feel her fingers again… kidding. You guys were amazing out there in the cold!

This is the first time I’ve tried posting a video so I hope it works and doesn’t have too much noise. I’m going to post some favorite stills of the day once Trish and Shane have their proofs in their hot little hands.

Enjoy!

I must say, I know, I’m terribly behind on blogging… but more on that later.

Here’s an image from an engagement session this past fall with the lovely couple, Trish & Shane. We took this on an EXTREMELY windy day out in the Crowsnest Pass (where the wind always blows). Trish & Shane were secretly convinced that the pictures would turn out terrible due to the wind but thankfully, to their delight, we captured some beautiful portraits. If I ever find some time, I’ll post more of their session.  I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding in Banff this New Year. If I thought the wind was bad… it was nothing. It was brutally cold their wedding day, something in the negative twenties…BUT despite the freezing temperatures, it was a beautiful and lively wedding. The wedding party were such troopers - especially Trish (you’ll see why later)! I’m just in the middle of proofing and hope to get a sneak peek up in the next week.

Onto other things… it may beg the question, why am I so behind on blogging? Well boys and girls… let me tell you!

A few recent life changes have led me to reconsider my career path… don’t freak out, I’m still going to be a photographer…  but not full time. I have decided that while I love photography, I don’t wish for it to be my full-time career. So, I’m back at university - for year number SIX. I’ve decided to pursue my original goal (when I started university six years ago) to become a doctor. So, why am I not blogging so much? Because I’m studying! Yesterday I became a total geek, I signed up for Pre Med Club! I plan on taking the MCAT this summer and applying to various schools this fall. Wish me Luck!

What does this mean for you?

My response time to e-mails can, at times, be delayed by a couple of days. I try my best to get back to you right away but please be patient if I’m behind. If you have sent me an e-mail and it’s been longer than a few days, send me another! I appologize if you get lost in the depths of my inbox and I’ll put you on the top of the list!

I’m still booking weddings and portraits but sessions are limited. So, plan ahead and book in advance! I plan on putting my calendar back up on the portrait side of the website so you can see what dates are available. Summer 2009 weddings are booking up fast so if you are interested, send me an e-mail or give me a call and I will set you up with all of our information.

That is all for now! I’m off to my Chem Lab (feeling very nerdy)!
