2016 was a crazy year. Our cameras took us to 12 countries on 4 continents. We taught Balls Out Workshops on each of those continents to photographers from all over the world. We spoke at Mystic Seminars in Portland, USA, FotoFem 2 in Ubeda, Spain, Fearless Conference in Porto, Portugal, SILK Inspire Festival in Goa, India, and Egadi Wedding & Glamour in Sicily, Italy. And we embarked on a round-the-world adventure with our kids (ages 6 & 8).
But this post isn’t about any of that. It’s about the 15 weddings we were entrusted with in 2016. Charisse & Serge‘s spectacular LFW wedding at Hotel Arts on Lanny’s birthday. Rea-Anne & Shayne‘s destination wedding in Maui, Hawaii. Shirley & Mike Tseng‘s (kick-ass wedding photographer) intimate destination wedding at the Chateau Lake Louise. Joanne & James‘ fun-filled destination wedding in St. Lucia. Tatiana & Ryan Brenizer‘s (world famous wedding photography super duo) wedding celebration/epic dance party in Brooklyn, New York. Steph & Sabin‘s Silvertip wedding in our own home town of Canmore, Alberta. Jennifer & Bo‘s intimate destination wedding on the turquoise shores of Lake Louise. Monica & Mike Rodriguez‘s (Mexican wedding photography superstar) raging celebration in Monterrey, Mexico. Sam & Mike‘s raucous wedding in Paris, Canada. Nastasia & Nicolas‘ spiritual celebration in the Lavaux Vinyards of Switzerland. Krystle & Amr‘s destination wedding at the Fairmont Banff Springs castle. Kolby & Neil‘s dazzling LFW wedding at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Canada. Ashlee & Brian‘s destination elopement at Moraine Lake in the Canadian Rockies. Alyssa & Greg‘s mountain-top wedding in the clouds at Kicking Horse Mountain. Michelle & Gurpreet‘s 4-day Indian wedding extravaganza in Edmonton, Canada. And Bailey & Tyler‘s emotional wedding at Teatro Restaurant in Calgary, Alberta.
There are no words to express how deeply honoured we are to have been trusted with these memories. We can only hope that this honour shines through in our work.
