Jasper Couples Photography – Karen + Derek

Karen + Derek gave me the theme ‘Epic’ to work with for their photographs in Jasper.  Their goal is for 2014 to be an epic year, and with a big move to Germany coming up, they are off to a good start.  They were married in Edmonton and drove out to Jasper the next day for the weekend.  It was a cold grey morning when we got out, and the mountains weren’t even visible.  Karen told me that she always gets blue skies in Jasper, so we held out for awhile and sure enough the sun managed to break through clouds and light up a bright blue sky by the time our session was finished.  After playing around in a grove of Lodgepole Pines for some formal wear photographs, we moved on to explore the banks of the Athabasca River near the Airfield.  These two are kindred spirits, and I had a great time photographing them.  I hope these photographs will serve as an Epic reminder of Jasper and Canada while they are stationed in Germany for the next four years.  Best of luck Karen + Derek!

Karen Scobie - Thank you Brian for the great memories – what a frigid first weekend of Spring that was! We leave in a week, and are sad to leave this province behind, but we will be back. I am thrilled to have your pictures to sustain us!

Much love
Karen and Derek

Jasper Engagement Photography – Alyssa + Derek

Alyssa and Derek came out to Jasper for the weekend to celebrate their recent engagement.  We got together early on a Sunday morning with a chilly -33 degrees on the thermostat.  We started the morning off slow, taking some photographs inside Jasper Park Lodge where the temperature was a bit more manageable.  By the end of the session we braved the cold for some bright sunny photographs along the Athabasca, but the sun did very little to warm us up!  I’m very excited to say that after Alyssa and Derek saw their photographs, they invited me to travel up to Grande Prairie to photograph their wedding this summer.  I’m looking forward to spending more time with these two.

Canmore Wedding Photography – Heather + Scott

Heather and Scott were a blast.  They came out to Canmore from Vancouver to have a small quiet wedding with 19 of their family and friends, planning to have a larger reception when they returned home.  We were blessed with a beautiful winter day, although the temperatures dipped dangerously during our portrait session.  This wedding was full of laughs and full of unique touches that spoke volumes of Heather and Scott’s fun and humorous personalities.  It certainly didn’t feel like working to hang out with these guys for the day.

Maligne Lookout Wedding Photography – Kristen + Tyrell

There are so many things I could say about these two, but few words would give them justice.  I’ve been excited for this wedding since we first met in November of 2012.  I have to say that Kristen, despite planning a wedding where many things could potentially go wrong, was probably the most laid back bride I’ve ever photographed.  And that is seriously saying something.  Regardless, that was the attitude that she and Tyrell approached the whole day with.  They were there for eachother, equipped with their vows, and that was all that really mattered.

The night before the wedding we got one of the biggest snowfalls I’ve seen here at one time.  I woke up to huge drifts on my deck, and had to shovel my way down to my vehicle.  Overnight Jasper in January had transformed from it’s usual grey dreariness into a winter wonderland.  I had scouted some snowy forest locations to do their photographs at, so we had plenty of time to play in the snow.  At dusk, as darkness settled over the valley, Kristen and Tyrell walked down a candlelit aisle at Maligne Lookout and spoke their vows as snow fell peacefully down on the crowd gathered around with parkas and blankets.

Watching these two together is a true inspiration.  They don’t even need to speak to communicate, their bond runs deep.  They also happen to both be incredibly unique characters, and Kristen is an endless source of entertainment.  If one thing is certain in their future it is plenty of laughs.  The laughter got off to a great start at the Sawridge during their reception.  There were beautiful (and hilarious) speeches, as well as games and plenty of dancing.  I’m so lucky to have such creative clients, and this was definitely a very unique wedding to be a part of.

Canmore Engagement Photography – Emily + Jeremy

It felt a bit like Emily + Jeremy and I had been friends forever.  I was so excited when Emily first got in touch with me, as she is my cousin’s cousin (2nd cousin?), and she and Jeremy had some great ideas for their wedding.  They came out to Canmore for their engagement photographs, and we explored around Policeman’s Creek, the old Train Bridge, and then climbed up a ridge behind the Alpine Club.  We had a great time together and I know that their wedding tomorrow is going to be a blast.  I’m so happy for these two characters, and can’t wait to tell their wedding story through my lenses tomorrow.
