Muttart Conservatory Engagement

He packed their bags, had her work convince her she had a conference out of town for the weekend, bought their tickets, planned an entire weekend of romance and, after proposing over what she thought was a simple breakfast date before she left, drove straight to the airport and flew her to NYC for the weekend. Talk about a proposal story and some serious planning!

There’s just something about Anthony and Seema that I really, truly and sincerely love. Maybe it’s the way they’re always making each other laugh, how they flirt back and forth or something else but they are an absolute joy to be around and get photograph. Anthony and Seema met here in Edmonton, love our sister city just a few hours south and will be getting married this summer in another favourite place of mine, Kelowna. Words really can’t express how excited I am to head back and document another Okanagan wedding! The views are always to die for.

Going into my first official year as an Edmonton wedding photographer, I’ve been dying to shoot a Muttart Conservatory engagement session. The Muttart (pronounced “muh-tart”) is one of Edmonton’s iconic skyline symbols and how couldn’t they be; they’re stunning both inside and out. It’s full of some crazy beautiful and odd looking plants from around the world featured in four different climates, one for each pyramid.

I guess I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking now…

Jasper Engagement Session

Mountains, mountains and more mountains! I kid you not every couple I have booked in the last three months wants their engagement photos in the mountains – and I mean, can you blame them?!

Ashley and Will decided on a Jasper engagement session and seeing as Will had yet to visit Jasper specifically, it seemed perfectly fitting! As most couples do, Ashley and Will made a weekend of it all and explored around on their own before heading up to meet me at Patricia and Pyramid Lake for their engagement session.

Will proposed at home and to celebrate they spent the next few days taking in the ever famous Calgary Stampede. Both being from Ontario (woo!), travelling around the world is their thing with over 20 countries visited so far and Thailand up next on their bucket list!

As always, the mountains were the perfect backdrop and it was worth every single shiver we had getting to shoot there. It means a lot to me when couples choose a place that feels like them. Bonus points that everyone so far this year, like me, feels at home in the mountains. It’s the place we can go to refresh, reconnect with each other and unplug for even just a few hours – sometimes not by choice. Here’s to the dead zone just before you get into Jasper!

Engagement Photos in Downtown Edmonton

Sam and Leah had their first date at Craft Brewery in Edmonton and when I asked them about their engagement session, they knew it had to end there. Being the foodies that they are and with Sam being Italian, they incorporated their love of cooking into their session with the rest of their engagement photos in downtown Edmonton.

After a steamy kitchen lunch date, we made our way to the Citadel and finally ventured over to Craft. With the weather finally warming up, we got to explore Edmonton‘s downtown a little and used some alleys that were along our journey.

As we were walking, Leah was sure she had seen the famous number 99, Wayne Gretzky himself and was she ever right! They posed for a quick photo, said their thank you and we continued on our way.

Ending at Craft Brewery, Sam and Leah reminisced about their first date and chatted about their engagement party that was happening later that evening. It was an eventful day nonetheless and one I’m sure to never forget.

Winter Couples Session in Edmonton

A winter couples session if you live in Edmonton is a must, especially when the weather warms up and you still have snow on the ground. This was the case for Shannon and Taylor and I was so thankful since they drove almost three hours from Cold Lake for their session.

Shannon, Taylor and I are all from the same small town back in Ontario, and when Shannon got in touch with me I couldn’t help but ask as Taylor’s last name rang a bell as did hers. Talk about a small world!

It’s funny when you move how much more connected you feel to where you came from especially when you meet people who actually know where it is, let alone grew up there too. Having lived here for awhile now, Shannon and Taylor have their sights on moving back home someday so it was nice to capture a part of their journey here out west.

Taylor even shared, “As a guy, I’m not really one for photos but of course, I’ll do anything for Shannon. However, you actually made it relaxing and fun to have our photos taken!”

at home engagement edmonton photographer tracey jazmin

At Home Engagement in Edmonton

Their love story started almost 10 years ago at a local restaurant where they worked together. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight, in fact when they first met they really didn’t like each other much at all.

Through the years, they grew to find they had more in common than they thought and became each other’s shoulder to lean on. I’m sure you can figure out the rest.

Mike and Vanessa decided an at home engagement was what they wanted, because like many couples, it’s the place they can be themselves the most. Cafe mocha’s for two and some to-die-for pastries from Cobs Bread, the mood was set.

They listened to their favourite playlist, drank coffee and had a little first dance practice run in their kitchen. Vanessa shared that this was a typical Sunday for them, and I’m sure it’s the day when some of their favourite memories are made.

As they sat and chatted, they realized that that very day was the six month mark until their wedding day. A moment that was shocking, yet so exciting how fast it was coming up. I cannot wait to be their Edmonton wedding photographer at the Royal Glenora this coming summer. Their vision for their wedding is so unique and completely tailored to them and who they are from the colour scheme to their outfits.
