About Shotgun Wedding
I am a former television news anchor and newspaper editor. I still consider myself a journalist, telling a story through images. My favourite weddings are when a couple can laugh together. I enjoy people who love life, adventure and good food. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings across the globe over the last decade and have seen it all.
Even before the world changed this year, I knew I wanted to do Shotgun Weddings, Elopements, Pop-up Weddings, whatever you want to call them. I love the intimacy of them. I created a new company called Shotgun Wedding to meet the needs of our new social distancing world. I take care of all the details, allowing you to have financial freedom with your celebration that is all about the two of you.
We’ve taken all the work out of the equation for you. Just show up! We supply the marriage commissioner (or help you to apply to have a friend or family member get an Alberta Temporary Marriage Commissioner License), the music, the location and the photographer. We have add-ons like flowers, videography and extra photo time as well. It’s all-inclusive and super easy (and fun, did we mention fun?).
I would love to chat with you about your vision! Also, check out the button below to see all our photo work at Loree Photography. It will give you an idea of what to expect with spectacular photos of your Shotgun Wedding.
PS…my own. 10-year wedding anniversary was April 10th this year…and we had less than 25 people at our own ceremony. Do you know what I love? The photos of my favourite people surrounding me 🙂
All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling
One of life’s many treasures has always been the preservation of life’s precious moments. I look at what I do as more than just taking a quick snapshot. Being able to be a part of your day I not only get to celebrate with you but I also get to provide a means for you to cherish some of your most precious memories for lifetimes to come. Being able to truly capture the feelings and movements of the day will ensure that you will be able to reflect on the many emotions and joys of your special day! I have been involved in the wedding industry, photography specifically since I was about 12 years old. Having branched out on my own in the last few years I have grown an even greater passion for what I do. I am a small-town girl and have an avid love for anything equine related. I spent many years in 4-H and held the titles of both Miss Rodeo Sundre and Miss Ponoka Stampede. I am a sucker for home-cooked meals and love applesauce on my KD.
Fun, Vibrant and Beautiful Photography
Hey! I’m Steph! I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Ontario, but just recently made the move to the gorgeous province of Alberta. I’ve been photographing professionally for just over 8 years now and have been blessed to meet so many amazing people along the way. I’m a huge sucker for a good sappy love story, and I think that’s why I have grown to have such a deep passion for wedding photography. A wedding day is such a special milestone, and to be able to capture such raw, genuine emotion and create memories for people, is one of my favourite things. When I’m not shooting, you can probably find me at the dog park with my pup Luna, or at home snuggling with my cats and binge-watching Netflix. I’m so excited to be working with Shotgun Wedding and helping you with your wedding day!
