Bridgette Bar + 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's Teatro Wedding

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!

Alia + William Married

For the love all things bright, inspiring and full of colour I give you a beautiful Mehndi Ceremony that was here in Calgary, AB.

They celebrated here with their loved ones AND got to get away to a beautiful beach to say they do. I however, didn't fit into their suitcase but I will never hold that against them. I wish y'all both all the happiness this worlds has to offer y'all both.

Same Sex Wedding Editorial 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.

Nicole + Nasib's 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

Ashley + Brett's Sheep River Falls Engagement Session

Ashley + Brett Engaged

Your hands guide me toward your lips like it knows how I thirst for your kiss. This feeling you orchestrate is like no other and you must be mine as soon as humanly possible.

Ashley and Brett wanted to do their wedding engagements out somewhere that wasn't on the normal beaten path. They searched high and low for it even and had 'scout' days to find the exact location that spoke to them both. They found Turner Valley's Sheep River Falls and knew instantly that it was the perfect spot. So, like any adventurous photographer, I jumped in their big ole truck and off went to capture their love amongst the amazing views of Turner Valley. 

I always want to know my couple's story and by story, I mean stories. We each have a different memory of how it all went down. So, I want all the details, the good, the embarrassing and the sometimes twisting stories of how they because a couple. You know why. I need to know what makes them tick so when they get in front of my camera I tell their story as authentically as I possibly can.

Here is what I saw, how I could tell they are both passionate souls who will never bore of each other no matter the circumstances.

Cassandra + Derek's Fall Engagement Session

Cassandra + Derek Engaged

To know what forever looks like is to look into your eyes. I see my future, what unconditional love is and where I know my only home will ever be. 

I remember the first time I met Cassandra, her smile made me smile, immediately. Her excitement about her marrying her gent was contagious. Then, meeting Derek I could see why she felt this way. He is completely smitten by his girl and she is never more safe than when he is near her.

Lets just say both of their parents are so proud and honoured to know that she will be loved as she deserves for the rest of her life. Isn't that what we all want for our children? To be well suited, well adjusted and reach their full potential in their lives? I sincerely hope that one day when its my turn to see my children fall in love, if I am so lucky, that they are ready, that their partner is deserving and that our children appreciate and love them some kind of fiercely in return. 

Love, choose love and you will never not be fulfilled.

Thank you kindly Cassandra & Derek.

And they lived happily ever after....

Reanne + Michael's Southern California Wedding Engagement

Reanne + Michael

I will follow you anywhere for you know the insides and outsides of my heart. You accept me as I am today, yesterday and tomorrow. This is how love seeks adventure one step at a time; your hand in mine. 

Reanne and Michael have a love story that is full of adventure, exploring city by city, falling in love with musicians songs as they were written on their hearts, they've learned to depend on each other no matter what was around the bend and through it all they were each other's constant. That is how true love grows; when we evolve while holding on the hand to the one who gets us and encourages us to be our best. They are exactly this and when you take one look at them you just know, they were carved from the same stone to be each others perfect fit. 

Much love and respect y'all two.

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. 

Amanda & Andrew, Thank y'all kindly for trusting me to capture your beautiful love story as it was so refreshing to see your commitment take place in such an intimate and endearing venue. Everything was just perfect. (Charbar, y'all killed it!)

Lets just run away to our forever because I can't wait one more day without being yours. - CDS

I wanted to create what I thought a beautiful elopement from just outside the city limits could look like. What I didn't dream I would be able to create was setting the stage for a real couple to tie the knot in front of their closest family and friends. It was simply beautiful, carefully styled to reflect them and who they truly are while reminding me the whole reason I love shooting love stories in the first place, being around great people.

Please meet Kendra, Max and their beautiful daughter, Indie. Their elopement story is one that will inspire all of us to remember our purpose in life and how love binds us together when its genuine.
