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.

Words cannot describe how excited I am to be photographing these guys’ wedding this summer.  There’s been some good times with these two over the years, and I’m very grateful to be able to joining them for this one.  Back in November the three of us and Ollie got together for a walk up Old Fort Point.  There’s nothing quite like fresh snow in the Rockies.

These are a few frames from that afternoon.

Jillian and James chose the perfect day to get married on a mountaintop.

In the valley surrounding Jasper, temperatures were far too high on this late August day.  Up on the summit of Whistler’s Mountain, however, it was a comfortably warm afternoon in the sunshine.  Following their ceremony, the two newlyweds and their friends and family dined at Becker’s Chalet’s where they were staying for the weekend.

Venue:  Whistler’s Mountain via Jasper Tramway

Reception:  Becker’s Chalets

Photographer:  White Leaf Photographs

I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Tom marrying his incredible wife Ashley.  They are such a smart, confident, beautiful couple, it was an honour to be a part of their sunny summer day.  Here are a few of their wedding photos.
