Provost Farm Wedding, AB // Karla + Justin

We recently had the privilege of travelling to Provost to photograph Justin and Karla’s beautiful Provost farm wedding.  Neither Joe or I had been to Provost before and to be perfectly honest there wasn’t much expectation other than just your average farm town … what we found was some VERY cool architecture, a beautiful lake and a families that we now feel a part of. I loved it so much Joe and I went back and captured a few shots. I posted on our insta which you can check out here. We headed to Provost on our way back from Joe’s parents farm in Manitoba. It was a little out of the way for us but we love so much that being a wedding photographer means we can get to places that we would have never otherwise had the opportunity to visit. Its such a privilege getting to photograph weddings all over Alberta and Canada.

We pulled into Provost the day before the wedding and what was meant to be a quick meet and greet at Karla’s parents place ended up being an invitation to stay, eat and mingle as if we were one of their own. It was so lovely!

Once we captured some getting ready shots we headed out to the lake for a pictures which was so beautiful, we definitely have found a new summer camping spot! Their ceremony was at a family farm which was decorated with a lovely mix of vintage pieces and classic, elegant decorations.  We made use of family owned property to photograph some flowering fields and then it was time to celebrate the night away.  Every part of the day was so filled with love and emotion it was such a pleasure to photograph their elegant farm wedding. Congrats again Justing and Karla!

Norquay Winter Wedding // Banff, AB

I am so excited to blog about Chris + Ivy’s Norquay Winter Wedding.  Two genuine and adventure-loving humans, had one of our most favourite weddings we have ever been a part of. Set in Banff, it included men in army formals (ladies am I right?!), chair lift rides, FOUR beautiful flower girls, toy gun shenanigans and finished off with a wedding dress slashing so the bride could dance properly. Busting intense dance moves are are one thing, cutting up your wedding dress for intense dance moves are a whole new league.

We maximized the short amount of daylight with a first look and then headed straight up the Norquay chairlift to capture some incredible views of the mountains. The snow had been pretty non existent so we were so happy that there was snow at the top of the chair lift! I’m always so impressed with winter bridal parties and their willingness to brave the cold – these guys were no exception! They trudged through snow, climbed over rocks, took off layers and all with a smile on their face (being the photographer we definitely get it easy as we bundle up!)

Their ceremony and reception were so full of emotion and love, it was such a pleasure to be a part of! Check out the pictures of Ivy when she gathered her bridal party to assist in cutting off the train of her wedding dress so she could bust a move … Any outfit adjustment (no matter how major) in the name of dance is totally worth it in my books! Ivy definitely takes the crown for hardcore bride. This wedding definitely takes the crown for our favourite Norquay Winter Wedding.

Congrats Ivy + Chris and thanks again so much for having us!

Intimate Couples Session, Victoria, BC // Jordan + Michael

I just got back from spending a few days in Victoria I couldn’t wait to blog this Calgary in-home engagement session. and was such an amazing experience. I went to Victoria to attend an incredible workshop where we and collaborated with local vendors on several sessions and styled shoots which will all be on the blog soon! I even took some time out and worked with a wonderful couple on my hotel room – you can check that session out very soon!

On top of getting so inspired we took some time and played around with a couples boudoir session which was so much fun!! I’ve been wanting to do more in home engagement sessions, I think its tricky because the mountains are so close so even if our wedding is in Calgary so often we are heading to the mountains for couple and engagement sessions. Most of the engagement sessions I shoot are out in the mountains so this was such a different style for me and I loved the intimate and relaxed feel of this engagement session. I can’t wait to start shooting more of this type of session, soooo, I am so excited to announce that come whenever our renovations are done .. I’m thinking when wedding season slows down, I will be offering couples boudoir sessions out of our home in NW Calgary, YAAASS!

We have spent so much time renovating and getting our place ready so we have several spaces that will be perfect for this type of session. If you’re wanting a more relaxed and intimate engagement session then this will be for you. These photos were taken from my first in home engagement session and I’m so excited to do more of these! 

For any more info on doing a session like this please drop us a line via email, phone or the contact form. Enjoy!

Calgary Wedding Photography Wedding Planning Resources and Info

Tara Terry is a Wedding Photographer based in Calgary, Alberta with a focus on emotional storytelling in local and destination venues.

All little more info our wedding photography style.

Describing our photography style has never come to easily to me. Firstly, I’m not the best at words in general .. I’m someone that could quite easily communicate in emojis alone. I have a hard time using proper English at the best of times so it goes without saying that I often like my images to speak for themselves. Each image should evoke a certain feeling within you and you should be able to remember the happiness and overwhelming set of emotions you felt on your wedding day.

With a photojournalistic perspective we capture candid moments throughout the majority of your wedding day, but also highly encourage portraits of you as a couple and family portraits for posterity. We love each element of a wedding, from the smallest piece of jewelry to the biggest, most confetti-filled party moments, we love to share it all with you (especially the ugly cry faces). We incorporate all of the pieces to create a linear story of your wedding day for your final portfolio of images.

Wedding Planning Resources

It can be so overwhelming starting to plan your wedding … I’ve always got such a special place in my heard for newly engaged couples – Joe and I planned our wedding in Australia from Canada so, so long ago so I know first hand how intense the whole process can be. For most couples booking their venue and then their photographer are the first two things they do. Because we are usually one of the first cogs in the wedding planning wheel we are often asked so many questions regarding day of planning and recommended vendors so I decided to put some info for all you lovely people!

First things first, from the amount of weddings that we’ve been to (we lost count after 100) it seems that there really are no rules any more. We’ve seen so many different approaches to weddings and day of schedules that my best recommendation is for you guys is to just do you. Let your day be a true reflection of who you guys are and your love story. There are few things that we love to help with – especially things that can help you guys maximize our time you so you get the most of out of your photos. After your day is done they are the biggest reminder of one of the most special days of your lives. The first of these is our knowledge of light.
++

Light and Photography

Light is often one of the least considered pieces in wedding day planning, but it matters more than you would think for the sake of not only your wedding photography but also the comfort of your guests and your general timeline of events.

Mid-day sun is the least comfortable thing for everyone involved. For photography it creates stark contrast and deep shadows as opposed to the beautiful softness from late day sun. It can also irritate the eyes of wedding parties and guests if forced to face the wrong direction for the duration of a ceremony, sounds annoying huh? We totally get it if this is the only time that will work with all of your other events planned in the day but this is the evil and untold truth of midday (can you tell I’m not a big fan?)

If your ceremony will take place in this tough light, we suggest finding a pretty place in the shade that will create even lighting across the ceremony, or, at the very least, try to ensure that the light is behind the altar space.

The last hour prior to sunset creates the most beautiful light of the day that is often known as the “Golden Hour.” I often recommend leaving some flexibility in your timeline during this part of the day to ensure that we can sneak away for at least 15 minutes for portraits.  Also, the two of you can enjoy a bit of alone time during a beautiful moment of your wedding day. If you’re getting married in the summer in Calgary this can be a little tricky because the sun stays up so late so we usually are encouraging our couples to pop out of their reception for some gold hour shots.++

Rainy or Snowy Day Wedding Plan

We capture so many weddings in the mountains which means any weather any day. As an Aussie moving to Canada I had no idea just how finicky the weather is. The forecast would say +20 and sunny so I assumed that it would be +20 and sunny, right?! No, that’s not how the weather here works, it could be cloudy and only 10 degrees all morning, and then it could also pour with rain for about 15 mins at 2pm. You really do need to prepared for any weather any time of the year.  My recommendation to any brides eloping to the mountains is always bring something to keep you warm.

There are only a few balmy nights during the summer in Calgary and even more so in the mountains. Usually as soon as the sun dips behind the mountains in the summer there is a chill that hits the air that can cool you very quickly. It may add a little extra bulk to your luggage when you come but there are so many cute formal jackets that only enhance your wedding look, and they can come in VERY handy if you get cold easily.

The chance of rain (ahem, or snow!) in Calgary and the surrounding areas exists no matter what month or season it is, so embrace it. All vendors should have experience with rain at this point so you shouldn’t let it add stress. Have a backup ceremony plan just in case. And don’t be afraid of the rain or snow, it can make for some gorgeous photos … (sun snows are the most amazing!). Have some umbrellas on hand, just in case – those big, see through kinds are the best for photos, and then dance and sing in the rain and I will capture it all!

Wedding Venues

 

Often I’m asked, “Have you shot at our venue before?”

I’m going to be completely honest and tell you that it doesn’t matter.

Whether we’ve shot at a venue many times or the venue is brand new to us, we always do our homework and review the venue beforehand.  We have no desire to be caught off guard any more than you have a desire to have an inexperienced photographer.

I always make it a point to speak with the coordinator before the wedding as they can always provide helpful info on possible inaccessible areas. They can always let me know if there is any construction or change that may be on the horizon. Above that we always visit a venue before the wedding. I scout out where I think will be best for pictures, what areas are close and where the sun will be so we are completely familiar with the venue.

Peyto Lake Elopement, Banff National Park, AB // Daryl + Kathryn

Daryl + Kathryn’s Peyto Lake Elopement what a perfect day in the Canadian Rockies looks like. Daryl + Kathryn are two UK natives that now call Vancouver home. Being travellers at heart they decided to celebrate their nuptials with a road trip through the Canadian Rockies and said their “I do’s” in Banff National Park. Their ceremony was just Daryl, Kathryn, us two and Aydin – who is a fantastic celebrant for adventurous or mountain Heli weddings, you can find his contact details here.

I absolutely love capturing elopements and this was no exception, we had so much fun getting to know Daryl + Kathryn an there wasn’t one place that wasn’t worth stopping to take their portraits. With the weather being absolutely perfect the whole day was a wedding photographers dream.

We met Daryl + Kathryn at Peyto Lake for their ceremony. We hiked to a secluded spot for their intimate ceremony. Once the ceremony was done the fun really started and we continued to explore the Peyto Lake area for some scenic portraits. The sun was out so the lake looks incredibly blue.

Peyto Lake can be a tricky spot for an elopement as it is a super popular spot for tourists. If you’re planning a Peyto Lake elopement then I highly recommend a party of no bigger than 10 people and to make sure that all guests for your ceremony are able to walk up and down some rocky terrain. There is no seclusion at any of the lookouts so if you’re wanting an intimate mountain elopement then hiking is required. If you’re planning to visit the area in 2019 then unfortunately you may struggle as Peyto Lake is going to be closed while Parks Canada completed renovations on the car parks. I’ve seen first hand how busy the car park can be so it sucks that it will be closed but much needed!

Next we headed to Bow Lake for some more portraits during sunset. If you’re wanting a really rugged and scenic wedding then Bow lake has a super cute lodge called Num-ti-jah Lodge. Num-ti-jah could be a great option if you’re wanting a mountain elopement that is out of the way of tourists! Congratulations again Daryl + Kathryn, thanks so much for having us capture your elopement!

Fall engagement Session in Kananaskis, AB // Mark + Mary

We hit the mountains with these two legends for their engagement session and had an amazing time exploring. Fall time in the mountains is incredible and Kananaskis is one of our favourite places in the rockies. A few months later I was told that some of the scenes in The Revenant were shot at these locations which is kinda cool … it’s no question that shooting in these locations is a wedding photographers dream … anyway, these guys are awesome and we can’t wait to capture the big day!

The Commons Calgary Wedding // Joey + Heather

One of our favourite weddings this year as definitely Joey + Heather’s Commons Calgary Wedding. Beautifully styled and decorated this wedding and Joey and Heather was an absolute delight to photograph.

I cry I at most weddings, if its not the first time a couple sees each other or a moving speech, almost every wedding has me wiping away a tear or two. The emotion that filled every part of Joey and Heather’s day made my tears flow to almost fill the viewfinder of my camera … it was hard to photograph sometimes! The wedding decor and floral design along is enough to make a tear well up .. it’s amazing!

Joey + Heather got married at The Commons Calgary and it’s one of the most wonderful spaces to create and shoot in. We often find ourselves shooting in the mountains so it was such a treat to work in such a raw and industrial space. If you’re looking for a venue that is convertible with an industrial vibe then this venue could be the perfect spot. While the ceremony space is transformed into your reception area your guests can enjoy cocktail hour by the bar in a different room of the venue. Each room of this venue is super cool and styled so the industrial vibe is cleaned off with old world glamour. Every part of this wedding day was beyond expectation and we couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the depth of love and wonderfulness of these two humans. Congratulations again Joey + Heather, thanks so much for having us!

Intimate Mountain Elopement, Banff National Park // Will + Robyn

 

It seemed that the summer turned to winter in the blink of an eye for us. As I sat in the warm glow of our Christmas tree I compiled this mountain elopement post from one of the most wonderful summer days in Banff and it’s made me long for summer already.  This lovely couple decided to came all the way from Britain to elope in the Banff National Park and fortunately we were able to capture every moment and all the feels. Every part of our time with Robyn + Will was so lovely and fun, from exploring over rocks to cracking Champagne, we loved every moment of their special day … Congrats again guys!

Calgary Bonterra Wedding, AB // Evan + Agatha

It’s not going to take long as you scroll through these images to see that Evan + Agatha’s Calgary Bonterra wedding was full of laughter, love and fun. These two very loveable and adventurous souls said their I do’s at one of our favourite Italian restaurants in the city, Bonterra.

Agatha has one of the most infectious laughs we’ve ever encountered, Joe and I found ourselves consistently smiling .. and then laughing .. and then smiling .. and then laughing again all day long.

We started our coverage just before a first look between Agatha and Even at this super cute tea shop and cafe at the Eau Claire building where they had their first date. I thought this was so special, we get asked all the time for advice on locations for first look, I think picking a spot where you had your first date is one of the best ideas.

After the first look we headed over to princes island park for some family portraits and bridal portraits and then straight to Bonterra for their ceremony and par-tay. This was pretty much the definition of a fun wedding with a rockin’ dance floor to finish it off. One of the best Best man speeches I’ve ever heard, sometimes my job can be tricky when I’m almost crying with laughter and still trying to aim and shoot a camera.

Lastly, I just wanted to mention how amazing all the staff at Bonterra are, Carla who is an event manager is like working with a friend and all the staff are just so lovely and helpful, once again I can’t recommend a Bonterra wedding more highly if you’re after a beautiful Tuscan looking courtyard ceremony and Italian food for your dinner.

Congrats again Evan + Agatha, we are so happy for you both and it was a pleasure being a part of your day!
