Calgary Wedding Photographer - Spruce Meadows - Holli & Ryan

I had never shot a wedding at Spruce Meadows before Holli and Ryan’s big day. Although I had been there a few times for other photography work, I wasn't sure what to expect other than the fact it would be beautiful! There was a light rain in the morning and I was admittedly nervous about the forecast for the day. Especially with an outdoor ceremony.

But the rain worked in our favour that day. A light sprinkle fell over the intimate ceremony. And when it came down a little harder during formals, we sought refuge among some beautiful tall trees. The grey skies made for my favorite romantic background. I’m a sucker for dark skies. We even made use of a clear umbrella when we needed to. It worked out perfectly.

From beginning to end, this wedding was full of love and emotion. Holli & Ryan have such an unspoken bond, a true friendship and an evident love for each other. It was wonderful to witness and truly an honour to capture for them.

I cannot finish this post without thanking an incredibly talented lady who helped me that day. Assisting as my second photographer. She has such PASSION for her work. And although she is “newer” to the wedding industry, I have no doubt that she is going to soar! Thank you Amber for helping me to document Holli & Ryan’s day. It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Here is just a select few from a gallery of over 600! It’s sooo hard to choose which to share!
