Brittany & Ben’s Canmore Wedding

Brittany & Ben’s wedding was a total blast. And talk about a location! When I was out scouting the location in Canmore I was blown away and on the day of the wedding the moody clouds were just wonderful. Pretty easy to get good shots with a fun couple like them with a back drop like that.

I did Brittany & Ben’s engagement photos so as far as the photo shoot went they pretty much knew the drill. We all (including the wedding party) got along so well. When you get a long with people so well I think it comes through in the photos, not to mention it makes the day that much more fun. I felt like I was shooting the wedding of some old friends of mine. A funny note, the video crew actually thought we were friends outside of the wedding just on how we interacted with each other :). If they lived in Calgary (they live in England) I’m sure we would be friends.

Anyhow, I’m sure that’s enough blabbing out of me, I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. Thanks for a super fun wedding Brittany & Ben!

Kerri & Pat’s Calgary Wedding

Shooting weddings is always fun! However this particular wedding was really something special. First off, not only have I known Kerri for a really long time, but she is family and I guess so it’s Pat now! (nice addition) Even if I had just met Kerri & Pat the wedding would have been just as fun. They had a really great wedding party put together and the whole day was filled with laughs and a super easy going shoot. All wedding are good, but this one was great!

Hawaii Wedding: Chelsea & Zenon

Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting my sister in-law’s wedding in Hawaii! It was my first time shooting a wedding in that kind of crazy heat and the weather was unpredictable. On the day of the wedding we had a sprinkle of rain before the action started and it was totally cloudy when the ceremony started, but by the end of the ceremony the sky’s had started to clear up! That is some fast changing weather! Good thing it was changing in the right direction.

Since I know Chelsea and Zenon so well already, shooting their wedding was super casual and it was a blast! I always enjoy shooting weddings and all the events that take place, but this one was extra special to me since it was a family affair. Everyone that made the trip was super happy to be there and the whole wedding was beautiful. These types of conditions make getting good pictures a breeze. 🙂

Thanks for the fun times you two!

Congratulations!

Coffee & A Wedding: Amy & Dwight

Amy and Dwight were so much fun! As I am sure you can tell from the pictures these two and their friends are a riot to be around and it was a pleasure for me to be able to be a part of their day. We started out at a coffee shop the girls have spent a lot of time hanging out in, and it was a wonderful idea because I absolutely love the photos we got there! Then we stopped off at this little park and shot a few more photos. The actual wedding photo shoot part of our day was by far the quickest I have ever shot. We had a whopping 15 minutes to shoot our photos! lol. As you can imagine the shoot was peddle to the metal trying to get as many pictures as we could in such a short time. To my surprise we were able to get what we needed and everyone was pretty relaxed :). Amy and Dwight seem like the type of people that no matter what the situation is, they will find a way to make it fun and that’s exactly what this wedding was.

Thanks for the fun wedding! Rob

Rugby Wedding: Lindsay & Vinny

Clearly Lindsay and Vinny both love Rugby! Oh and their cute dog, who played a big part in their wedding. When I first met with Lindsay and Vinny they told me they wanted to do some type of Ruby wedding shots and right away I was excited, because I had never done any wedding shots like that and I knew it would be fun. When wedding time came around it wasn’t often I didn’t see that ruby ball kicking around and their dog was definitely there for everything too. Lindsay and Vinny were super fun and easy to work with. Their wedding party and parents were a joy to be around and I think we all had a wonderful time together!

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: The two people who caught the bouquet and garter belt(it was on the ball) are a couple. 🙂

Thanks for a fun wedding Lindsay & Vinny!

 

Wedding in The Mountains: Kelsey & Ryan

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-24-70mm-f2-8-lI had such a wonderful time shooting this wedding! I won’t bore with all the reasons why, but in short Ryan is family, he’s a cool guy along with his wife and all their friends were fun to be around. Now clearly Kelsey & Ryan chose a beautiful location for their wedding. Anytime in Banff is a good time, but when your shooting photo of people you know and love, it is extra special and that is exactly how this day went.

Straight away in the morning I went over to Ryan’s hotel room where the men were getting ready. These guys were having a time as the men tend to do, cheers’n and watching “How to tie a tie” videos on YouTube and what not ;). I tried not to get in the way, shot some photos and then scooted over to the room where Kelsey and the ladies were getting ready. The good times were also rolling over there, although a little more civilized fun times were defiantly going on.

The ceremony was beautiful as you would expect a Banff ceremony to be. This was followed by some group shots and then the wedding party and I took off to our first location which was just behind the hotel. Now you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day, except for this little breeze that was causing a bit of a ruckus. Right as we were set up to shoot one of our first formal photos the wind got so crazy my very heavy tripod with its flash blew right over, I turned to see it fall and when I looked back up Kelsey’s veil was flying off in the wind down the steep hill behind her! Lucky for the fast action of Ryan and his brother they were able to retrieve the veil without tumbling down the hill themselves. That veil taking off ended up working out though, as I think the shot we got was better without it.

Our next location was up a gondola to the top of a beautiful mountain overlooking the Rockies! Again, the location was out of this world and again, , , so was that wind!😅 Right when we got there we had this group of tourists ask to take a picture with the bridesmaids (bride & groom were MIA), that was hilarious, then another couple ask to get some shots with the bride and groom! Celebrity status was going down on that mountain for sure. Anyhow, the views were amazing and the walk to the peak was filled with laughter and joy. Shooting photos was easy up there, because when you have a beautiful couple and a backdrop to die for the book kind of writes itself.

I could go on and on about this wedding, but I won’t because this post is already insanely long. I will leave you with this, if you want to have the wedding of a life time, get your family together and head to Banff, Alberta Canada! Congratulations Ryan & Kelsey and thanks for taking me a long for the ride. 😉
