Bagpipes, kilts and no underwear was my introduction to this fabulous wedding located at Silvertip Resort.  With this recipe I knew Stef and Scott’s wedding day was going to be a total blast – and it was.

 The Silvertip Resort staff are total rock stars

The ladies were drinking early and laughing hard when I entered their room. Everyone was on form for a wedding day located in Canmore, the heart of The Canadian Rockies. The wedding venue was at The Sivertip Golf Course.  The Silvertip staff are total rock stars and never disappoint.  Jaclyn and Jennifer are the wedding coordinators at Silvertip and they really are incredible.

Weeks prior to a wedding day I plan out every detail of my clients magical day. Most people, including my clients have no idea how much work goes on behind the scene so that every wedding day goes without a hitch.   The staff ensure that from sunrise to after sunset, everything is set in motion allowing me to capture as many incredible moments as possible. Creativity is my middle name.  “Just” turning up isn’t enough; so much work goes into every wedding making each wedding day unique.  My ideas and thoughts usually runneth over on the big day so both planning and spontaneity usually make the day incredible.

Don’t you “just” turn up and take shots

Okay, why put in so much work in preparation for a wedding day you might be asking. Don’t you “just” turn up and take shots.  Can’t you just buy a camera and take shots. Yes, you can. But…. if you want amazing breathtaking world winning photographer shots, you’ll want a professional like myself.  As a Calgary wedding photographer,  I go above and beyond making sure your wedding day is first planned out on paper than executed on the day. No, I’m not a wedding planner but quite often I feel like I should be. Lol.  Speaking of wedding planners; the reason your day goes smoothly was because they hired Epic Events & Wedding Planning. They really did do an exceptional job!

The day really starts with hair and makeup.

The day really starts with hair and makeup.  If the bride and bridesmaids are ready per schedule then the day will run smooth and on time.  You might wonder, seriously why stress about this?  You don’t have to but if you want more pictures of you and your handsome husband, it is important to leave time for a creative session for the two of you.  These are usually the most sought after pictures and the ones you see in magazines. Scott and Stef’s day ran on time and I was so grateful.

As far as the groom and his groomsmen go, they looked as stunning in their kilts as the ladies did in their dresses.  Well, almost!  You cannot beat a bride in her wedding dress.  Tons of laughter, great music and lots of dancing were had to finish off my coverage of their wedding day.

Scott and Stef, many thanks for a great day.

Geoff
