Lara & Adam

Lara and Adam were married in early May, when the snow had all melted and the spring mud was all dried up. But the trees were still bare and leafless. There is something still beautiful about the bare trees though and I think it shows in their photos which were taken at Nellie McClung Park. They were married and celebrated their reception at the old timers cabin. The dancing at this wedding off the hook, so great! Adam and Lara’s love really shines through in these photos and they are so sweet together. Thanks for having me at your wedding.

Bethany & Merrill // Edmonton LDS Wedding Photographer

December 27th 2013 was both freezing and beautiful. There is something special about winter weddings, they have an intimate, cozy and “magical” feeling about them. Don’t judge me for being corny and using the word magical. Bethany and Merrill were married in the Edmonton LDS Temple. Following the ceremony and pictures, they had a cozy family dinner at Fort Edmonton Park in the old fort building, with two big fire places going. It was a wonderful day and you can tell how much they love each other. Thanks for letting me be a part of your day!

Still Here

I just know EVERYONE has been wondering what has been going on with Rice Photography. I would rather just post my next wedding with no explanation, since I’m sure no one really cares. But I feel weird leaving months long gap. There is really no big reason why I have not blogged in a while. Mostly it’s because I have four kids. Also I just felt like I needed to take a break, not like a deep soul searching break. Just a normal break. Also right now I hear my two youngest children playing in the bathroom upstairs and turning the tap on… so scared to go up and see what’s going on right now.

But I love photography and have missed sharing my photographs. I try not to post too many photos on Facebook because people don’t really care. But I’m pretty sure I fail at that though…because Instagram. (You can follow me https://instagram.com/chelrice/ it’s mostly bad selfies, bad hashtags and my kids.)

So after all that rambling, here are a few of my favourites from the past ten months starting with family vacation last August, all the way until last Sunday when my Husband took a nice photo of me.

Kara and Joel

I’m still trying to catch up on my 2013 weddings! And since it’s almost fall again…  Kara and Joel had a beautiful and fun fall wedding in Vegreville.  I’ve shot in Vegreville a few times, and It’s such beautiful town.  Kara and Joel were so wonderful to work with. Thanks for having me!

Also thanks to Nikole for taking photos of the men getting ready.
