What do you get when you mix film producers, film makers, writers, actors, singers, song writers, performers, directors and entertainers together – one hell of a good time LOL! We had the pleasure of shooting brad’s brother, Rob & Hayley ‘s wedding a few years ago and were honoured when our long time friend Brad asked us to shoot his own wedding to Katie in Calgary on June 25, 2016. We jumped at the chance to head out to Calgary and spend the weekend with old friends full of love and laughter. We arrived on Friday just in time for their rehearsal dinner and some good conversation and some incredible belly laughs. Come Saturday morning we were ready and eager to start shooting knowing full well we would be exploiting the epic Alberta skies and taking advantage of every “nook and cranny”. Luckily for us, Katie and Brad were game for everything and anything. I think we had every possible type of weather – from sun, to cloud, to full thunderstorm showers, to sunset and even a rainbow on repeat throughout the day! It was Alberta in it’s full glory and we didn’t stop shooting 😉 Congratulations Katie and Brad!!!
