The wedding took place in Genoa Bay, BC, at Bird’s Eye Cove Farm.  This was a new location for me, but when I visited in March, I was astounded!  They feature an traditional hand cut timber frame facility, known as ‘The Barn’, which is set on a large farm overlooking a harbour!

Out of all of the couples I have ever worked with, this one is at or near the top of the pile in terms of how long we have known each other! The groom, Joel, and I grew up together on beautiful Vancouver Island, in Duncan.  We grew up camping at Rathtrevor Park and getting into trouble (stargazing on the beach is fun, but it is wise to tell your parents where you are going hehe), hiking (the Nootka trail was my favourite trail by far), and drinking beer and chatting in the hot tub.  Joel even helped me out with some college homework when I thought I would like to be a computer science major!  (that didn’t last long for me, but have a look at Joel’s website (http://www.zineer.com) for converting photos/videos to digital, as well as websites and more!

Joel and Danielle are both creative, so I knew their wedding would include a lot of creative components.  Joel LOVES orange, so you may notice a touch of orange or two in this video:)

I hope you enjoy this video, as I really enjoyed creating it, and I think it turned out really well!  I look forward to going home to the island every time, and I look forward to spending more time with Joel & Danielle!

If you are so inclined, you can also view their engagement short film here.

Nicole and Brad first contacted me in June of 2011, and when we meet at the showroom for a consultation, I knew the wedding was going to be great! Nicole was very friendly and outgoing, and as she was telling me her plans for the big day her smile was gleaming!

The wedding took place in June of this year, at the beautiful St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino in Cranbrook, BC.  I had never been to Cranbrook before, but I was seriously impressed with the venue they had chosen!  The staff were always friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, and the new pavilion  was sensational!  It is newly built specifically for hosting weddings, and has gorgeous lighting, great seating, and is simply a great place to have a party!

Below is the video we created for Brad & Nicole as we spent the day shooting with them.  It was a very fun weekend (we arrived on Friday night and stayed until Sunday morning), and we hope to be able to go back again someday!

Be Blessed,

Mark

Kevin and Katie are both teachers, and both have such kind hearts. I couldn’t have imagined better or more deserving people to have won the contest, and they were a real pleasure to work with!

This past spring, Kevin and Katie were introduced to me by an unconventional means. They didn’t find me on Google, they didn’t find me on Facebook, nor did they find me on Wedding Obsession.  They did find me by winning a contest!

Kevin and Katie were the lucky winners of WeddingsInAlberta.com’s  wedding contest!  They actually WON a free wedding collection, and they were ecstatic when they found out they won!

The wedding was held on a Wednesday (cool, eh?), at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. The setting was more than beautiful, and I had a great time that day!

Below are some images from the wedding day, I hope that you enjoy they as much as the couple did – I think that they turned out really well, and I love the classic looks of the B&W images!

Be blessed,

Mark

The best part for me was when it came time to present the same day edit.  I usually don’t get nervous at weddings, but this time I definitely was sweating a little bit, as I had never shown my work to clients so quickly!  But the lights dimmed, and as the video played, I could tell that they loved it!

This past weekend I was blessed to be able to take part in the wedding celebration of Simon & Kerri.  The ceremony took place in the Botanical Garden’s in Devon, Alberta, and the reception was held at the Santa Maria Goretti Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Both sites turned out to be fantastic, and the wedding was beautiful!

When I first met with Kerri, she really REALLY wanted to have a same day edit shown for all of the guests at the reception.  I was a little bit hesitant, as I had never created one of these before, and I knew that it would be a lot of work in a very short amount of time!

However, the day finally arrived, and I headed up to Edmonton for the wedding.  And the day turned out to be perfect!  Everything went smoothly, and the entire wedding party was great!  Overall it was an amazing day!

Wedding photography was done by Lauren Hannah Photography, who did a fantastic job!

I hope that you enjoy this video!

I hope you enjoy the album layout that I have created specifically for them – I feel that it showcases their day very well!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Kelsey for a few years now, and over the years we have had lots of fun playing various sports, BBQ’ing, and camping together!  I remember the first days that he started talking about Jill, this awesome girl he had been set up with, and I knew life was going to change for him – in a great way of course!

Getting to know Jill has also been a pleasure, and I can’t imagine not being friends with her now!  Jill is an amazing woman, and is a perfect match for Kelsey in too many ways to list here!

The wedding was in January, and took place at River Park Church.  The reception was at a really great venue, the Venu 1008 in Calgary!

I hope you enjoy the album layout that I have created specifically for them – I feel that it showcases their day very well!

Be blessed,

Mark
