Calgary Wedding Photographer - Happy New Year 2019

Looking Back to Look Forward

Happy New Year Folks

It is that time of year when we all either happily or begrudgingly look back over the past year. Regardless of how you look at it all, we all get a new fresh start for the new year. For me, I am glad 2018 is over. It was a good year all in all but there were moments when I swear I was like, F-this! Like many I know, we all had a lot of challenges, but just like all things that transpired, we got through them. Not being able to work as much as I normally would have due to this lovely lingering recession here in Canada, my major surgery I severely needed, and my schedule being full with family needs, it somehow gave me the much needed opportunity to spend a lot more time with my family. That being said, my family time was more just my kids and me as my man squeeze, my hubby, worked out of town all year, as many of y’all already know. I also was able to travel to Florida, California, New York and of course the rocky mountains a few times and I have to say, that was a miracle in itself. I’ve seemed to manage how to work abroad while also taking some family time along the way and for me, this is a major success. All y’all mommas and pappas out their, you feel me. It ain’t and wasn’t easy but we do this life, one thing at a time. Also, I couldn’t have done this all without the support of my mother-in-law and my friends.

Much respect and love to y’all all!

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Bridesmaids

Will You Be My Bride? 

I've been a bride and I've been a bridesmaid and one thing is for certain, having those you love around you and to be their to support a friend / family member you love is a heart felt honour. What I've seen that gets overlooked is how bridesmaids, when chosen with adequate thought, can be one of the most amazing roles of your friendship. Being a good bride and bridesmaid will leave either a sour taste or bring you closer for the rest of your lives. So, to pay homage to all those AMAZING bridesmaids out there, I did a shoot with them in mind. Here's to all the money you dolled out, all the hours you spent planning parties and showers, those dresses and shoes you had to try on and get approval of from the bride herself and to basically being free labor at times because you are the only people the bride really trusts, well maybe except her wedding planner she painstakingly picked out.

Vanessa + Tom Married

Everyone deserves to have a love story that can be written on their heart for all the days of their lives.  This is exactly what Vanessa and Tom had and it was simply beautiful. 

We all have aspirations of what we want to be when we grow up or where we want to go in life. What makes this so beautiful is when you meet two souls who know how to encourage each one of your dreams to come true right before your own eyes. I met Vanessa and Tom at our first wedding photography consult meeting over big coffees. Vanessa and Tom both had been working a lot and wedding planning was very important to them but not how you may think. They were not only planning a wedding but planning on moving very soon after their wedding to pursue their next big chapter their lives. They have BIG DREAMS!!! So, as we got to becoming fast friends we ironed out everything about each other and we all knew that I was now going to be one of their biggest cheerleaders in their lives. 

On their wedding day, I could feel this sense of peace they both had. It was calling for rain all day, we were in an Calgary airbnb and all they cared about was being with each other and seeing their loved ones. For me, this is what a wedding is truly all about and I was excited my cheering for them would be well underway. 

Its important to know that Vanessa wore her mother's wedding dress and Tom had a custom suit made for him that was both perfection and timeless. When the two of them saw each other, I even teared up. It was magical. The rest of the day was just like that, magical, authentic and calm. I know lots of weddings have lots of highs and lows but this one was if it all had been written down in the history books. It was all meant to be. So, please enjoy their wedding day story below and I wish them both all the very best in their new chapter in Philly. 

Much love & respect!

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Gay Wedding Inspiration Shoot

One Love is the Best

To know love, to express your love and to know that you can have a partner that was created for you for all the days, shouldn't be for just some. It should be for everyone. It is fundamentally how human kind was created; to have a companion. As social beings, humans will forever seek connection. Its why so much is written about the human connection and love. We ALL need love.

This is why I am still shocked at why same sex marriages are still considered taboo in many places of the world. I am going to get very honest here. I love, love. I don't care what others think concerning this and that will never stop me from shouting from the rooftops that LOVE, IS LOVE. 

I'm still hear stories of how my fellow wedding industry folks receive emails from same sex couples asking if they are 'LGBQT friendly'. This is a question that shouldn't have to be asked if you serve in the wedding industry in my opinion. If you are good honest folks who love, love, come my way. I will do my utmost to capture your day with all I have because YOU ARE LOVE.

** Every vendor on this creative team, without hesitation, signed up to showcase just how beautiful same sex marriages are to us. **

We hope y'all love this shoot as much as we do.

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

Every spring I am drawn back to my childhood memories of watching a Sound of Music with my grandma Duncan. She loved, loved, loved Juile Andrews and she loved the mountains and every spring we would watch the movie after our Easter church service. We would also watch it on rainy May days too! It was our thing. I find I am more and more like her as my days carry on. So of course, when I was asked to partake in a wedding inspiration shoot based on the love of the movie the Sound of Music, I was all in, no questions asked. 

Now for y'all brides-to-be out there, finding the right inspiration for your wedding is essential. I say this all the time, but I can't seem to say it enough, it must hold near and dear to your heart. It can be the most beautiful event ever but if your heart and your personality are not clearing seen and reflected in your whole day, its could have been just another person's wedding. 

What inspired Claudette Marie Events is her genuine love of Julie Andrews, the songs and love in the sound of music movie she too grew up watching and those majestic rocky mountains. Its simply about what it means to have beauty, grace, playfulness and to find your love. She is a hopeless romantic after all. 

So, when asked all of us vendors came together and made what I call one of the most beautiful mountain-scape wedding inspiration shoots I have ever done. And, as such, It has been featured in a few places already but alas, here are a few of my favourites shots from it. I hope you are inspired to make your wedding reflect what makes you happy because your wedding is all about sharing your love with all those who come to celebrate the two of y'all.

Enjoy!

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Syria Meets Calgary Wedding

Nicole + Nasib Married

May we all find that other soul created for us. For it is then that we realize that we have found our home that no longer determined by four walls, a street address or a geographical location. It is more of a theoretical place that is bound by a connection from their soul to ours.

When I met Nicole about capturing her wedding day, she told me of this man she had fallen in love with and basically the rest was history. Basically, that is how all love stories go. You meet, you realize that they are very different from everyone else that came before them and then well, you must submit to loving each other for all the days of your lives. Its simple. Its beautiful. Its amazing.

Nicole and Nasib, I adore y'all both and may all y'alls' years together be filled with so much love, passion, and laughter. 

Much love and respect, 

Christy

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Fairmont Palliser Wedding

Sanja + Scott Married

When you know you just know. That pretty much sums up Sanja & Scott. They met and well, the rest is history.

One of my favourite things about the two of them, is how unbelievably perfect they are for each other. As it is with most of my clients, I have to get to know them both as quickly as possible. Both Sanja and Scott, have the most sarcastic sense of humour, they have this unspoken kindred spirit thing going on between them, and their commitment to be there for each other is down right beautiful. 

With their daughters, their families and their friends, they celebrated in style at the Fairmont Palliser hotel in downtown Calgary. Their first look was perfect. Their portraits were so much beautiful because they brought it. They looked stunning y'all. Their bridal party time was so much fun for everyone. Their reception viewing was jaw dropping. The dancing was off the hook and not just because I got called out and was told to drop it like its hot, now, but it was that good. Their guests enjoyed hours of Photo Booth photos by Flashco Booth. The food was amazing and it was one of the best overall wedding nights a lot of guests were heard saying. I say what is a job well done indeed. 

Sanja & Scott, thank you so much for allowing Cole and myself to capture your amazing day. We will and do both cherish being there and we wish y'all all the love your hearts can hold. 

Much love and respect, 

Christy 

Please enjoy some of my favourites from their unforgettable wedding day.

Melanie + Jeremy Married

Lets meet up in a calgary park, tell only our family and tie the knot. Tell me more, tell me more, is all I could think when I met Melanie and Jeremy for the first time for their wedding portraits before their elopement. I love when folks just make a decision that is best for them and enjoy every minute of it all. After all, isn't that what living is all about? 

Heres to y'all Mel + Jeremy. 

Best Wishes & Congratulations

Calgary Wedding Photographer - UK Destination Wedding

Claudette + Jonathan Married

I could write a very long novel, well maybe a short story at least about these two amazing folks. They have become pillars in my world and I am better for it. When they asked me if I would travel to Bristol, UK to capture their wedding day after their unforgettable proposal, I don't remember anything other than cheers'ing and checking flights. It would be the best decision besides moving to Canada and having a family that I've ever made. As you will see, its hard not to embrace this venue, the collective creative team and the couple with all your heart because they too give all they have right back to you. 

I won't ramble but I will say this, no other wedding I've photographed to date, has captivated my heart so. There are many seconds but this one was one for the books.  

May your lives be filled with all things rose, great football, delicious food, many exciting and relaxing adventures, great times with great friends for the rest of your days together Claudette & Jonathan. It has been an amazing honour.

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Southern California Beach Styled Wedding Shoot

Follow Your Heart Wherever It May Take You

When I close my eyes I see sun kissed skin, I can smell the salty air from the coast-line, and it is a place where I go to let go of all my worries. The beachside is where so many go to elope, get married and to just surf the waves to reconnect to all that is important. 

I wanted to do a shoot based on my love of the beach, the beautiful California sunsets, timeless fashion, and unsurprising beauty. When I also asked many of my Canadian friends and family where they would elope to, they almost always said California.

Rocky Mountains Wedding Photographer - Fairmont Hot Springs Wedding

Kaylee + Chris Married

When you know, you just know.

Kaylee and Chris have been together for quite some time and almost all of their friends are now either married, having kiddos, and are engaged to be married. They just knew that when it was time they would say I do.  What am I saying?!?! Chris was never in any hurry but Kaylee was chomping at the bit for years now to be married. ha ha Everyone knew that were meant for each other because they were cut from the same cloth and they can say a entire conversation without saying much at all to each other. Its sort of creepy, yet cool really.

When the time came and Chris made his plan on how to ask Kaylee to marry him forever, she was over the moon and I swear the rest was a blur.  Their wedding was all but planned in the matter of months. After all, she was planning it in her mind for years now. 

After looking at a few venues outside their Calgary home, the Fairmont Hot Springs quickly became their perfect get-away for them and their guests. They wanted a weekend away with everyone without having to go to Mexico like so many other Canadian couples decide to do. This also allowed them to have all of their family.  Kaylee dedicated her wedding planning to making sure every detail for their day was with respect of being together with their guests and laughing, A LOT! 

The day of their wedding mother nature proved to be bit of a concern on and off, but just like all things worth waiting for, we worked with what she gave us and their photos were a lot of fun and simply amazing. Its like they say, if you wait for the right moment, it will pass you by. So, live now, enjoy life now so you never have any regrets of your choices.

At the end of the weekend and their wedding celebration, one thing was for certain, their were never any dull moments and I have the photos to prove it. 

Cheers! ~ Christy

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Fish Creek Park Wedding

Emmylou + Shaun Married

So, this wedding is for all the DIY can-doers, serious Gilmore girl fans, lovers all teacups, men who can dress well, and love a good outdoor wedding and reception.

I will keep this short and too the point because I know y'all are here for the photos. So,  here is what I call the next best couple since Lorelei + Luke. Emmylou + Shaun are two of the most lovely, wittiest couples I've ever met. They get what life is really all about, they love their family and friends like there is no tomorrow and when Emmylou walked down the outdoor park path, I even wept. You see, Emmy is basically super talented in... well everything really and that is why most of their wedding decor, etc she made HERSELF and it wasn't Pinterest fails. Ha Ha Don't get me wrong she had some amazing help from Lisa & Peter, her wedding assistants but she had an amazing vision that she also shared with her now hubby, Shaun. After all, he made their backdrop frame for their ceremony. See, I told you, he is her Luke. He is handy and can make anything!!!

Ok, y'all see for yourself what I"m talking about folks!

What you need to know about these bottles of champagne, is that Emmylou's picked up her bottle of Perrier Jouet in France when she went to the vineyard and then told her momma about it. Her momma was stunned and immediately got her own bottle of champagne from her wedding  roughly 37 years ago!!!

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Charbar Resturant Wedding

Amanda + Andrew Married

When you know, you know. Life sometimes is just as simple as that. 

You can search all your life for a true love but it all comes down to trusting that voice inside you that is either whispering or yelling at you to respond. Amanda and Andrew know exactly what this is like. They found each other and just knew.

The wedding planning, however came when they were ready. After all, they are both very busy folks and have the most amazing lil'man-boy, Grayson I ever did met. This in turn allowed them to create their perfect day, where every wedding detail was centred around what is really important to both of them. As you can see, that meant, their love for their family and friends, especially their son.
