This Calgary intimate wedding was a beautiful backyard wedding, filled with everything that matters: close family, great food, beautiful vows, hilarious kids, and… Odin! (who loves being in on the action. Seriously, dude is always stealing the show.)

It was such an lovely wedding day and we loved capturing these two. Their intimate ceremony was in Leah’s parents’ backyard. We spent some time before the ceremony and afterwards we took off to Fishcreek part for some photos. And luckily, the rain held off for the ceremony.

We got out to start our portrait session, and from the top of the valley, we watched a big old thunderstorm storm blow in. All good though, we weathered it in a sweet Fish Creek teepee. When the rain let up, we got back out and had great relaxed shoot in the Fish Creek valley. We pretty much had the place to ourselves–always good for an unhurried session.

Leah and Anthony like to keep it chill. Oh yeah, and they love their good boy, Odin. Congratulations you two, we’re really happy for you!
