We were so inspired by Janelle & Barry. From the first time I spoke with her on the phone, I could sense the amazing connection she had with her fiance & the purity and gentleness of their love.

And I couldn't help but get all gooey when she told me the story of his surprise proposal and the song he wrote for her (Barry is the lead singer for the band Kiros, whose album A Single Strand is one of our current favs on our studio playlist).

That proposal included the croquet balls on Janelle's mantle.

Some more details.

The guys from the band figuring out their suspenders.

Janelle looked absolutely beautiful.

And Barry could not help but be mesmerized when he saw her walk down the aisle with her father.

The little flower girl was in awe too.

Married! I just love the look they share after their first kiss as husband and wife.

Yummy flower petals.

Calgary is sunny. But pretty darn cold. A few of our favourite images from the short time we froze our booties off in the field behind the church.

A warm-up stop at the mall en route to the reception (shooting with a 45 tilt-shift lens on a moving elevator can be entertaining!).

Barry, Ryan, and Tyler getting goofy.


Lots of laughter and tears during the speeches.

And some beautiful moments on the dance floor.

Janelle & Barry had a salsa dancing teacher leading all the guests - he was hilarious and everyone had a blast practicing their moves!

Congratulations Barry & Janelle!

Spot on timing to capture expressions. Adore the shot of the B by herself and the flower girl. Very creative use of indoor/flash lighting.

Another home run....wooohoooo!

Wow Chris + Lynn you two have been busy and constantly continue to amaze me. I could spend hours looking at and commenting on each and every awe-inspiring image you post.

Your vacation looks like it was wonderful! I'm so glad you had a chance to cool it for a little bit.

Your already great images seem to somehow get even better with each post you do. Honestly, I don't think I know anyone who continues to excel on the level you do. It certainly is motivational, and inspirational to me and I'm sure so many more.

I miss you guys a lot, and thank you for all that you do!
