“We looked like models!” —Lorena Landriault, Fort McMurry, AB
“They made my partner and me feel extremely comfortable – which I will admit is a challenge as I hate having my photo taken.”— Alex Briton, Calgary, AB
- You will have us as your personal “glamour handlers” to guide & direct to look your best.
Imagine being dropped into the kitchen of an impressive 5-star Michelin restaurant with no cooking experience— and expected to create a souffle for an influential food critic.
Who wouldn’t feel anxious at the task?
Now imagine by your side are world-renowned chefs, personally showing you what to do. They have the best ingredients on hand and are totally invested in your success. Under those circumstances, I bet you’d make a killer souffle, impress the food critique, relish with gusto the fruits of your labour, and have great memories of the experience to boot.
That’s just the start of what we can do for you!
- We know how to showcase both you and the epic scenery around you.
- We are experts in lighting and stagecraft.
- We use multi-light studio systems on location!
What does all this amount to? Total freedom and independence to create as we desire in any weather or situation.
We haul studio lights to the tops of mountains so we can bath you in gorgeous “golden hour” light at any time of the day. It’s exhausting work, but we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. Light is our poetry; it’s the tool for making signature art that stands above the rest.
We are at your service, excited to create an unforgettable experience for you and your partner regardless of your age, race, gender identity, sexuality, culture, religion, body or abilities. That’s just how we roll.
“Shirleen and Troy have such a lovely spirit, still to this day, they are love birds after how many years of marriage?! Who wouldn’t want to be photographed by Love Birds on YOUR wedding day!” —Basia Marshall, Canmore, AB
- You can relax knowing all your photographers are experienced, qualified professionals who work seamlessly together as a team.
- You don’t have to worry about conflicts between 2 photographers who haven’t worked together before your wedding day! (Yes, this happens)
- You enjoy all the benefits of having two creatives capturing every moment of your wedding in a rich variety of images and perspectives.
One photographer just can’t do a wedding justice. There is simply too much going on for any one person to capture.
Two sets of eyes and two extra hands make the difference between a good job and a phenomenal one. Between missing a moment or not!
As a husband and wife team, you know exactly who & what you are getting. Troy and I have worked together for years, we’ve known each other for decades, we love and care about each other and work hard to realize our dream—which is to wow you with our images, kindness, and service.
This is a whole lot more than you can expect from a photographer who will hire a “second shooter” simply to make the numbers happen.

“There are few people that can bring the best out in everyone they meet. Shirleen has that gift.” —Amelia Stratton, Bolinas, California
- Your wedding—one of the most significant days you will ever experience— will be captured in pictures that live up to the hype.
- Your wedding pictures will evoke nostalgic tears when you see them, be the first things you grab if your house is on fire and the things your children will fight over having when you are old & gray.
This is what goes through our minds when we make pictures for you. Creating unusual and exciting pictures fuels our passion and we bust our asses to deliver pictures and products that look polished and strikingly different from the usual wedding photography offerings.
If your wedding pictures don’t mean as much to you, then we aren’t a good match for each other.
You can save yourself a lot of money by finding a cheaper photographer.

“I just finished looking over our wedding pictures and there are literally tears in my eyes. The pictures are gorgeous! You captured so beautifully every moment. Everyone looks so beautiful. I will cherish these forever. ” Liesl & Craig, Calgary, AB
We know where to go and when to be there for the best light and to avoid crowds. From iconic, not to be missed spots to off-the-beaten-track locations, we can take you there.
What is peace of mind worth to you?
You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing you are hiring talented and experienced creatives who won’t make a mess of your wedding day!
“Most of my comments from people who see our pictures are “is this even real?” and “these look like they came straight out of a magazine! They are that stunning.” —Stephanie Fox, Seattle, WA
