This is the second part of my look back at a few of our past wedding albums, featuring Wedding Party Portraits from Calgary and area. Every bride carefully chooses her colors and her bridesmaids’ dresses. The groomsmen match the color scheme in several ways.
The album pages below come from the couples’ own albums or from our studio sample albums which we show during our consultations.
This was a fun wedding in Strathmore. The large portrait was one of the ten images I used to gain a national accreditation in Wedding Formals. An interesting touch, which will be fondly remembered by everyone present, is the fact that Ben went to the trouble of finding purple socks to match to beautiful purple dresses worn by the bridesmaids. (From the album of Melanie and Ben)
The New Year’s Eve wedding of Courtney and Jeff had a colorful costume ball at Canada Olympic Park. Many of the formal portraits of the wedding party were taken at the Calgary Petroleum Club. Yvette Shanahan, of Avant Garde Wedding Planning, worked with Courtney and Jeff on this large undertaking.
This is a page from the album of Navi and Mitch. They were married in Edmonton and the photos of the bridal party were taken on the grounds of the legislature building. The traditional wedding gowns were exquisite in design, color and texture.
Fall is an especially good time for a wedding. The weather is usually near-perfect and the extra color provided by Nature just adds to the images. The wedding was in Calgary and the reception was at the Cochrane Ranche House. Amanda chose a beautiful shade of green for the bridesmaids’ dresses that worked with the fall background. (From the album of Amanda and Chad.)
From the wedding of Tracy and Cory, the formal photos were taken at Fish Creek Provincial Park. The dresses were a deep chocolate-brown color. The wedding was perfect with every detail carefully planned by the couple.
Tanya and Sean were married just outside Fernie. Both love the outdoors, so it was natural to have the wedding in a field surrounded by the mountains. The formal photos of the wedding party were taken at several locations, including this enchanted forest.
Phong and his groomsmen pose in front of the Lougheed House which is one of Calgary’s favorite wedding locations. A fish eye lens was used for the large image. (From the album of Julie and Phong)Crissy and Blair were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony and then everyone changed clothing for the reception at the Calgary Zoo. The formal photos were taken at Eau Claire. The bridesmaids’ dresses were classic black, and very elegant.
Jessie had her bridesmaids in striking copper-colored dresses. The gowns glistened as they reflected the light….very beautiful! The wedding was on the groom’s farm. (From the album of Jessica and Ryan)
Grachelle chose a soft green for her bridesmaids’ dresses. The color was reflected throughout the wedding. Yvette, of Avant Garde Wedding Planning worked with Grachelle and the large wedding proceeded flawlessly. (From Grachelle and John’s album)
The weather was bitterly cold and a coating of fresh snow had fallen for this Valentines Day wedding. A few photos were taken out-doors, as everyone wanted a memory of how the day actually was. The wedding party helped each other walk on the icy ground, laughing as we quickly took the photos. Snow flakes were falling, and the red dresses looked spectacular against the white backdrop. (From Debbie and James’ album)
Our thanks to our associates, Pat Johnston and David Am, who work with us on the wedding days. Having an extra person at the wedding brings an entirely different viewpoint to the wedding coverage . While Keith and I concentrate on the more formal portraits, either Pat or David, is free to circulate, capturing candid images.
