LK headshot 2015Planning a wedding or family gathering? You’ve come to the right place.

Your photographer is an important part of your event. You’ll want someone energetic, experienced, fun, patient, and creative.

I started photographing weddings in 2011 and quickly developed a love for it. I also do family photos, engagement, maternity, newborn and grad photos. I have a home-based photo studio where I do headshots, ID photos and groups of up to four people.

My photos have been published in newspapers and magazines such as the Globe and Mail, the Edmonton Journal, the Western Producer & Canadian Running Magazine.

I got my start in photography in Grade 8 thanks to our teacher. She set up her darkroom equipment in the science lab and that’s where I got my first taste of developing photos.

After receiving my Master’s in Journalism, I moved across the country to co-found The Rocky Mountain Goat weekly newspaper in 2010. I am currently publisher and co-owner. I split my time between photography and newspaper work.

I am based in Valemount, BC. but travel for bookings.

Wedding & Engagement Photos

All Packages:

Packages include photo editing and sorting. Photos are provided digitally via online gallery (unless otherwise specified).

Mileage is charged for any wedding further than 20km from Valemount at $1/km to cover mileage and commuting time. Weddings more than 1.5 hours from Valemount must include a hotel room the night before and the night after if I’m booked for the whole day.

Time spent beyond the time included in the package is charged out at $100/hour.

I pride myself on my turn-around time for photos. A handful of samples are sent by email within a few days to share with family and friends. For weddings, the full batch of edited digital files are shared with you usually within 3 weeks (except during peak summer months June-Aug). For family and engagement photos, they are usually ready within one week (please inquire for more exact estimates at the time of the photo shoot).
