A Love Story Filled with Surprises- Lovestruck Portraits- Calgary wedding photographer

I Adore these two!!! I met them at a bridal show last year and I left that show hoping they would email me. As luck would have it they won my engagement session and they were over the moon excited as they wanted to book me for their wedding!!! You can just tell by the way they laugh and look at each other that they will be a couple that stand the test of time. Their wedding was sooooooo much fun. And we were blessed that their church ( with some really crazy restrictions for photographers) let me capture their story the way I normally can. It helps sometimes when you just show up to talk respectfully to the priests. I loved their reception and spending time with their family and friends. They incorpated so many traditions, it just warmed my heart. There are sooo many things I would talk about, but honestly their whole day was just a fairytale, everything was perfect!!

Love has a funny way of bringing people together, and for Alyssa and Pierre, it was the swipe of destiny on a dating app that sparked the beginning of their incredible journey. As they embark on the adventure of a lifetime, let's take a closer look at the beautiful chapters of their love story.
