Paige & Daniel’s Wedding | Canmore, Canada

It’s not often we have the privilege of shooting a wedding in our own home town of Canmore, Alberta… and with a local couple, none-the-less! Paige and Daniel gave us that opportunity. Their unique wedding story involves a double-rainbow, kitchen party, VW camper van, and one of the most down-to-Earth couples ever.

I spent the morning with Paige and her family as she got ready for the big day. It sounds cliché to say that they were all glowing, but they really were. They sang, danced, hugged and laughed. The expressions and love was palpable and an absolute joy to document. It wasn’t until later in the day that we got to learn more about how Paige’s family came to be. Paige was actually adopted into her family less than 3 years ago, at the age 23. This was the marriage of two families, as much as it was the marriage of two people. Lanny and I relished every moment and were honoured to document such a special event.

Thanks for welcoming us into your beautiful celebration, Paige & Daniel, and for trusting us with these memories! Here are just a few of our favourite shots.
