I’m sharing some randomness about me today🙃 ⬇️ .
Just in case you don’t know me, I’m Whit 👋🏻I’m a #Calgary based wedding photographer and I’m OBSESSED with capturing connection + genuine moments!
Alright lets do this!
(1) I’ve been nerding out on Documentaries on Netflix while I edit.… When did I turn 80? 👵🏼 but seriously check these out ➡️ Tales by Light (🤓photography and travel so good!!) and The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes (these homes are unreal!!).
(2) Sometimes when I grocery shop I add things I want to my list 📝WHILE I shop just so I can cross it off and be like “See we had it on the list”… Ketchup chips??? Definitely wasn’t on the original list. Just sayin'.
. (3) I am obsessed with mid century modern design. I took an interior design class in university, it was my worst mark 😂, but it was one of my favourite classes🤷🏼♀️.
(4) You know how you have those memories that are SO vivid as a child that you can still remember all the details of them. We used to rent this beautiful old cabin in the Schuswaps each summer. It was hidden along the lake side cliff edge, those steep hills that line the lake. We could barely get our station wagon down to the cabin. The smell of the moss and cedars 🌲was amazing and I always remember the windows used to shake when the train passed below by the lake. We would eat more cherries 🍒than you could imagine, climb this massive set of stairs between the cabin and the lake on the side of this steep hill and lay out on floats all day long.
. (5) One day I want to learn piano and be fluent in spanish, legit Life Goals! 🖤
Name this folk duo! (Note: not a real band, but wouldn’t this be a good album cover? Maybe if we come up with a good name they’ll do it)
` What would you tell yourself if you had the chance to go back 10 years? In 2008 I was fresh out of high school & debating on what I should go back to school for.. 😂 I wish I could go back in time and tell that ten-year-ago self that " There is no salary, no status, no end-of-year bonus that is ever worth your happiness " 💜
I learned that lesson eventually, but I think of the time I'd have saved! Haha
What would you say?
Brock & Hanna’s wedding on Saturday was an absolute dream! Every detail was so thoughtful and special! Can’t wait to share more from their day! Congratulations you two!! ❤️

Just a quick post to give a shout out to all the grooms who let their wedding photographer take hundreds of photos on the big day! We always make sure the guys are at ease and have some fun with their crew 🤵🏼
` There's nothing quite like a cool drink on a hot day and on a sunny stunner like this, I'm indulging in my all time favorite beverage, homemade smoothies cause there are endless amounts of flavors so I never get board with just one kind! Haha.
And you? What's your ultimate refreshment? 🍸
` Dear customer: can I share a secret with you? Can I explain why I spend endless hours working on my craft? Because I LOVE it. I like the sound of the click of my camera shuttle and the feeling of reading a happy email from my customers. I spend hours pouring myself into my work because I love it.. and I love making you happy. ❤😍
` From my beautiful Bride & Groom - "Krystal is more than just a photographer she's an artist. She is passionate about what she does and it shows through her work. She is very involved with her clients and makes sure she understands exactly what they are wanting out of their photoshoot and works with them to make their vision come to life. She's not afraid not to get dirty if it means getting the perfect angle or shot. She was wonderful to work with and we look forward to working with her again in the future!" 😍😍 It's this very thing that makes all the long hours and sleepless nights worth it!! 🙏🙏❤
Eighteen of Kristie and Tylers’s best friends made their wedding day extra special! I loved hanging out with this amazing crew ... throughout the day I was able to witness tears from the bridesmaids, hilarious banter between the groomsmen and most of all the admiration and respect they all have for Tyler and Kristie! Also, I just have to add that these groomsmen treated me like a queen being 7.5 months pregnant.. they carried my equipment, step latter, obeyed all of my requests for photos without complaining and assisted me in anyway that I needed!! Truly the best!
