Skulsky Fish Creek Family Session

Skulsky Family

Sometimes you just have to have fun no matter what. 

That's pretty much what this family did and I am so glad. After all, isn't that what we teach our children for the most part? Stay youthful at heart and live the most joyful life you can while being good humans. 

Here is there fun filled family portraits.

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.

Fall Camping Boudoir Shoot

Hello There Darling Victor

The smell of campfire, the fresh pot of brewed coffee and a handsome gent just being in the middle of nature, yeah.... that's pretty fantastic and some would say very mountain men like. I won't disagree at all but what I will say, is sometimes the very simple things are some of the sexiest things one can lay eyes on. 

This is what I was thinking when I was asked to collaborate on a outdoor boudoir shoot for a gent. I hope y'all like it and can find some inspiration for the next time you go camping.

Much Respect, 

Christy

Southern California Beach Editorial 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.
