I had the pleasure of meeting Laetitia and Alex when they were planning Nadine + Yannick’s wedding in Jasper last year.   This past winter we got together in Canmore to take a few photographs for them to announce their good news.

Dorothea and Holger travelled from Germany to elope in the Rocky Mountains.  They didn’t tell anyone back home about the true purpose of their holiday. Instead, they planned a birthday party for Holger shortly after they would arrive back in Germany so they could share the good news and photographs with their friends and family.  I love intimate ceremonies like this, it’s truly something special to be invited into such a personal part of a couples’ lives.  Their close friends Kirsten, Dirk, and Lars (the ring bearer) joined them from Edmonton, and Kirsten put together the flowers and cake for the occasion. They spoke their vows to each other on Pyramid Island without telling their family and friends, but they allowed my camera and I to bring colour and emotion to the imaginations of their relatives, and life to the stories they will undoubtedly share with their friends.  I am very thankful for the opportunity, and for the laughs and smiles we all shared that day.   A big thanks goes out to Beryl Cahill for performing the ceremony, and the always friendly staff at Alpine Village who hosted the couple and their friends for two beautiful autumn days in Jasper.

Another year gone, and another awesome group of Jasper kids are being unleashed on the world.  It was inspiring to hear their dedication to sustainability, and contributing to the community.  Wherever these Grads end up, they will certainly be a valuable part of their communities.

This year I will continue my tradition of giving a portion of  White Leaf’s profits back to the community.  15% of profits from the print sale will be made available for donation to community programs or sustainability initiatives.  If any Grads would like to have a say in where the money will go, please send me a note through the contact form in the main menu!  Carbon Offsets will be purchased to neutralize the shipping impact.

Grads have until July 1st to order prints of their formal photographs.  Orders can be made through the online Gallery over in White Leaf Photographs’ online storefront.   Orders will be shipped out on July 10th.

I was very excited when Laurel contacted me about photographing her wedding.  I’m still just as excited.  Laurel and I grew up together in Jasper, and now that she’s found Greg she’s heading back there to get married at the end of the summer.  The three of us got together in Canmore back in February for some engagement photographs.  It was a blustery day and we were blown along Benchlands trail overlooking the valley.  These are a few of the photographs from that afternoon.
