I was grateful to have the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Calgary last weekend. One of our best friend's daughter, ALYSSA LAMB was getting married in the Calgary LDS Temple. It was the first time I had seen this temple and it was absolutely breathtaking. Don and I were able to see it in the distance as we drove into town on Friday night.

It was a beautiful, spiritual ceremony and I was thankful to be a part of it. Some of my favourite pictures have been taken at weddings because there is such a feeling of joy and happiness there. ALYSSA and BRANT were both so happy and you could just feel that all day. It made it fun to be with them.

They both come from large families so it was a bit tricky to get all the shots I wanted but their families were very accommodating and helpful! We were grateful for the weather in the morning! Calgary can be difficult in February but it was warm and beautiful. We were not so lucky in the afternoon but the bridal party were troopers and really tried to work with me.

I love some of the pictures that I was able to take and Don and I had a lot of fun! Looking forward to the reception here in Kamloops this Friday! Here they are.....

I was so happy to be able to take Alyssa and Brant's engagement pictures last December when they were in town for Alyssa's brother's wedding. They were a wonderful couple to work with, fun, happy and definitely in love which made it easy. I use Aperture to process my pictures and  Photoshop CS3 to work with them.  I've also included several shots that have CoffeeShop BW Actions on them.

Alyssa is the daughter of some of our best friends and she has grown up with my children! I remember her as a baby, a toddler and then as a young woman and now she will be getting married this month. Time goes so fast! This is why I love to take pictures...they freeze time for a few minutes so we can remember the happy times, the loving times and the times we do not want to forget. They capture who we are at this brief moment!  

Here are a beautiful couple in love and starry favourite pictures to take!
