New years Eve. A fresh start. A new outlook. celebration. excitement. love…… Randi and Brad married on one of the most exciting days of the year. The moment I met them, I knew we were a great fit. Randi is full of life and Brad has this amazing energy and passion, in fact, Brad had as much vision for the photography as Randi did. We created some beautiful images for their engagement session and finally, December 31, their wedding day, arrived. It was one of those crisp winter days, not terribly cold but also not warm- which the bridal party will attest to! Still though, I always say that we generally can’t ask for anything better than a winter day that isn’t -40 and blizzarding. I was able to capture both the girls and the boys getting ready which was great, especially because Brad also had some nifty gear to show off. The first glance was done on a roof top overlooking the city and Randi’s tears of joy were an indication of just how much Brad means to her. We were lucky enough to be able to use a family member’s AMAZING home for some of the creatives and I think the boys definitely channeled their inner ‘mad men’ and the ladies their true divas within. The whole crew were such troopers and their outfits looked amazing against the pristine backdrop of freshly fallen snow. Their ceremony and reception took place at the Calgary Zoo and I was so happy to be able to steal the newlyweds after the ceremony to get some shots under the christmas lights as Brad proposed in the ‘tunnel of love’ one year earlier. The night was topped off some great dancing and what seemed like hundreds of bags of popcorn and a customized hockey puck for each guest.
