Hi. We’re Diane + Mike, and we’re wedding photographers in Calgary, Alberta. We’re both full-time photographers and we love what we do. We don’t love weddings because of the fancy dresses and table settings and elaborate bouquets… We love them because they are crazy days filled with emotion from all the people you love. Our ‘thing’ is people — wedding or not. We want to see your dad tear up mid-speech, and your sister laugh as she helps you with your dress. For us, it doesn’t matter if your wedding is at a fancy palace, or in your modest living room. (Actually, we think weddings at home are crazy amazing). Things like location, details, etc, take a mega backseat to the people & relationships at your wedding. Whether it’s an elopement or a huge wedding.
I think, sometimes, you don’t appreciate a moment until you see it in a photograph. Until you stare at it awhile. Capturing those fleeting, subtle moments is our biggest challenge and thrill. And we like to find those moments, rather than make them. A real moment. The longer we shoot, the more we realize we like simple, honest wedding photos. We like candid vs posed. We like wedding photos that will stand the test of time, and still be just as meaningful (or maybe more) in 50 years :)
