It is hard to imagine a more picturesque location for a wedding. Danica & Aaron were married on Aaron’s mother’s acreage 20 minutes north of Cochran. After a visit to the historic Bottrel general store for some photos, the ceremony was conducted in a field on the acreage and the reception was held in a quonset. Now this wasn’t just any quonset, this one was decked out with a disco ball!
Although July 28th was one of my longer weddings, it was wonderful. Thunderstorms threatened to impose their will on the day, but thankfully they never materialized. The groom started early with an old fashioned shave, with a straight razor, at the South Trail Crossing Barbershop. A very lively ceremony was held at the St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church. Afterwards photos were taken at Fish Creek Park and Heritage Park, before the reception at the Wainwright hotel. We even managed to squeeze in a few sunset shots before Natalie and Greg’s the first dance.
On June 21st, I had the opportunity to photograph a lovely couple in fantastic location, Kananaskis Country. Although the weather forecast called for thunderstorms, the sun shone all day. The couple started, and finished the day, at the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis and held their ceremony and reception at the Boundary Ranch. As horse lovers, this was the ideal location. The only small downside to selecting this location was Maria’s horse was too far away to attend.
On June 21st Sara and Matt were wed at the Cochrane Ranchhouse. You know you are in for something unique when to groomsmen have specially ordered camouflage tuxedo vests.
Last weekend Jake along with his Mom (Mariel), grandma, and he best friend (the dog) visited my studio. Jake was tiny, he was born a bit early and only weighed 5lbs 9oz at birth (May 4th, 2014). He was so well behaved we even had time to include the dog in the photoshoot.
Last weekend I joined Natalie and Greg in Banff for an engagement session. Banff played a special role in their relationship. Unfortunately it was a very rainy day. Consequently, we sought shelter in the Banff Springs Hotel.
For those that haven’t met Nate yet, I am very happy to introduce my son Nathaniel Thomas Alexander Caffrey. Born April 7th, 8.9 pounds and 22.5 inches.
Wesley couldn’t wait to join his mom and dad, so he came a bit early and was still quite small for our photoshoot. However, he is determined to grow quickly. I don’t think I have ever seen a baby feed so many times during a session.
