Of neon and love

Michelle and Brett Friesen 

Back in the days of living on the colony, weddings were such a happy affair. The drama was all happy drama, the people were there to be merry. 
That's how I felt at Michelle and Brett's wedding. An overarching sense of happiness. A group of friends, family and relatives that all wanted to be there. I couldn't get enough of it. 

The sun was shining all day, having no alternative. Romping around Heritage Park prior to the 6:00 ceremony, we got some dreamy, clean shots and some dramatic ones too. I need to edit a dinosaur behind them all in the photo of them running. 

The venue, being a old car museum was wonderfully eclectic. Nothing like having a real airplane hanging above the guests as they're enjoying the spread of food. The neon too, soo much. 
I wish for more weddings this summer that make me feel this happy, comfortable and energetic. 
Thank you to Michelle and Brett for the merry time. And Brandie Sunley for helping me capture the day. 

And then, of course, there's the photobooth:

Drew Malinowski: Dance


I picked East Village for it’s clean lines and sleek looking architecture.  A neighbourhood under heavy redevelopment, it’s really is shaping up to be one of the more chic looking places in calgary. It was but a few years ago when the area looked like it’s last building had been built in the early 80s.

This photoshoot was a collaboration of Drew Malinowski and Dave Latos. We set up lights around the EV discovery center and the river walk just nearby. Drew danced and Jumped several hundred times, keeping herself warm in the chilly october evening.
