    I am about 2/3 done editing this wedding from last weekend and all i can say is that I enjoyed taking these photos so much! I did my first engagement shoot with this couple and I knew from then that their wedding was going to be enjoyable - they were both so relaxed and so in love! The kind of couple which makes you start believing in love again really.

    Open for feedback - I will be posting a link in a few days with a flickr set of about 50 images of my faves from their wedding, but in the meantime here is a sneak preview :)

    1. Let's get this straight - it can't be a Canadian wedding without some Timmies

    Wow. These are fabulous! You have done wonderfully. I am glad to hear though that you have a similar shot to the one in the mirror that doesn't have you in it. :)

    Thanks for the comments :)

    Twocolor: the best thing about Calgary is the wide open park spaces in the middle of the city. Literally this is a 15 minute drive from downtown and there is this field of grass. Actually, just a two minute walk from where I use to live right by there was a paddock with two horses until a year or two ago!

    Husky_mum: Thanks! Ha. Not too much editing actually, the only one that was 'extremely' edited was 10 - the sky was taken the year before :blushing: otherwise it is mostly some curves and saturation bumps here and there. The BW are really just a simple edit I kind of refined which really saves time!
    I use a borrowed 1Ds Mark II (if only it was 6K less eh?) and my primary lens is a 24-70mm

    Nailed it :thumbsup:

    I have to say it has really been a joy watching the standard of your photography increase over these few years.... your are now at the point where your impressing other Pro's and should be charging the higher end rate. Well done to you. :D

    Great work. I have one consistent complaint, which is that you're losing too much detail in the bride's hair with the black and whites. Correctable but needs a re-work in post. PM me if you're interested in any suggestions, or I can post a conversion workflow here. Or if you disagree that's fine as well.
