Bridal portraits at Baker Park in Calgary by PhotographikTara and Mark’s Calgary Italian Cultural Centre Wedding

From the first skype date we had with Tara and Mark about their Calgary Italian Cultural Centre wedding, we knew this was going to be a match made in heaven. Not just because we were excited to be their Calgary wedding photographers, but because these guys are a perfect for each other. While completing their PhD’s at The University of Western Ontario, they planned their Calgary wedding from across the country. They chose beautiful Baker Park for their outdoor ceremony and the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre for their reception. The food was delicious (thank you Roma Catering!) and the party epic (a big shout to Fayyaz Khimani of Pez Productions for rocking this party).

Maui Sugarman Estate Wedding

Shannon and Justin’s Maui Sugarman Estate Wedding

Every couple has a place on this earth that is near and dear to their hearts. This place is a sort of refuge from every day life. A corner of the globe that’s all their own. For Shannon and Justin, that place is Maui. From the very first time they visited this little island in the north Pacific, it had their hearts.

Shannon and Justin’s Maui Sugarman Estate wedding was pretty much as picturesque as it gets. A ceremony by the water. A group of dolphins jumping just off shore. Cocktails at sunset with their closest friends and family and a day that both of them will remember for the rest of their lives. This was an amazing celebration and we are so happy to have been there to capture it.

Shannon and Justin’s Sunset Maui Engagement Session

Maui has to be one of the most incredible places on this planet. Volcanic rock around one corner and sandy beaches and sunsets around the other. Lush walls of greenery and flowers and the most incredible morning light.

Maui holds a special place in Shannon and Justin’s hearts. That’s why they chose this special place in the south pacific to be married. Just a few short days before they said “I do” they agreed to a sunset Maui engagement session. We wanted a chance to work with them before their wedding day and it gave us all a chance to explore the island together. They took us to Big Beach, which is Justin’s favourite on the island. A large spit of sand that stretches for what seems like miles. A casual vibe and some really pretty light in the evening (as we found out). We chased the sun down the road and spotted an amazing view of Molokini crater just off the coast of Maui.
