Maranda + Danny Intimate Backyard Tent Wedding
Edmonton Wedding Photographer
September 8th, 2018
I decided I would share Maranda + Danny’s kind review about their experience with me photographing their intimate backyard tent wedding!
“Where do I even begin with Carissa! My husband and I feel so very lucky that we crossed paths with Carissa in late 2017. She was instantly up for adventurous photos in beautiful Nordegg. Little did we know that the date we chose in September would not be the day we imagined. Mother Nature had another plan with plus 2 weather and an expected 20mm of rain. Sad, yes but we ended up getting to be part of Carissa’s first styled shoot a few months later and I look back on that day thankful that things didn’t work out.
The first shoot we had with Carissa was her styled shoot. Instantly she made me feel like I was hanging out with my longtime girl friend. The day was spent laughing, smiling, exploring and creating. The photos of Nordegg will forever hold a special place in my heart.
This spring my longtime boyfriend and I got engaged and we couldn’t wait to get home and book our engagement and wedding photos with Carissa. As ALWAYS she went above and beyond. The sun peeked through at the perfect time for our engagement shoot and she made sure to get every photo, make us laugh and genuinely captured our love for each other.
This September we tied the knot and one of my favourite parts of the day was when Carissa and Kayla arrived! Each and every single person in our wedding party made comments about how funny she was, how they often felt self conscious in front of a camera but that Carissa made it feel so natural and we even had a few mentioned how they wished they would have known Carissa when they had gotten married. I had asked for photos of everyone at our reception, in the moment enjoying the night. And boy did she out do herself! I have photos so many important people in my life laughing, dancing and crying on our special day. Photos of moments I didn’t get a chance to see that day but that I can look back on for years to come.
Carissa has grown into someone I am honoured to call not only my choice photographer but also my friend. She is always there encouraging, supporting and spreading love not only with her clients but within the photography community as well which I think is one of her most beautiful traits. She captures the true emotions between two people in a way that I have never experienced before. I cannot wait for our next shoot with Carissa. If you are looking for someone who will not only bring you timeless photos but also create such a beautiful atmosphere, look NO further. Carissa is a bright light in this world and I am so excited to see where her career takes and to see the stories she shares through her photos. We cannot thank you enough Carissa. The Universe was really on our side when our paths crossed. WE LOVE YOU!”
