The magnitude of what we do hit home this week. We don’t just provide a service as a vendor on a wedding day. We capture memories and we authentically portray one day that represents two lives intertwining to become one beautiful story.

We've never spent the 4th of July in the US, but the next best thing is spending it with a group of visiting Americans and filming their wedding!
Linh and Kaonou brought friends and family up to Alberta from let's see..... New York, North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and I'm sure I missed some in-between.
When you come to get married in the Canadian Rockies, you wanna see some mountains! The Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge is l literally nestled in a valley of mountains. We had perhaps the wettest, cloudiest July on record. I was worried the majestic giants would be a no show, but late in the afternoon the fog and rain lifted, just enough to let us film some great shots, and prove that we were surrounded by an epic landscape.
We had a blast filming this wedding. Kaonou is a designer and her elegant, refined dress, was her own creation. Take note of the traditional embroidery design she hand stitched! This crazy, wonderful group of people brought together Vietnamese and Hmong roots, with their American culture, marrying it all together in the Canadian rockies.
"And Love Makes Three" is why we film weddings.
It allows us to document life, artisticly tell a couple's story and create an heirloom, so generations from now people can look back and see the moment two people connected thier lives. Samantha and Matt hired us early in 2018. Then in the fall they contaced us to let us know they would be adding to their family just a few weeks before their wedding. Baby Rylan entered the scene just six weeks before his parents big day. Family came in from all over the country to help these two celebate on several levels. The ceremony at the Harevest Garden's in Red Deer, started and ended in the sunshine, but had a quick and fiesty shower go through. We were scrambling to cover equipment while continuing to roll. Samantha and Matt were a wonderful couple to work with. So genuine and caring and already amazing parents. Rylan was one of the most content babies we've ever been around and didn't stray far from Grandma's arms. It was a day filled with so much laughter, layalty and real people.
When clients book with us it’s often months or even a year before their wedding date. During that time we’re working diligently to boost the worth of their wedding film.
Last weekend Dean and I had the huge honour of filming Heather and Riley’s wedding. This brave couple along with 90 of their closest family and friends converged on Banff from Portland Oregon and all over the US, to experience nuptials at 2500 meters (that would be 8041 feet for our friends south of the border).
With sun and clear blue skies it was a beautiful Alberta winter day. Winter wedding films are so beautiful. We hope you’ll fall in love with this one.
In 2013 I was asked to film my first wedding by a fellow at our church. I declined the offer three times as I didn’t feel it was my destiny! Well, he wouldn’t take no for an answer.
So, with a Canon Rebel and a Kodak zi8 we broke into the wedding industry! And so Humble Pie Productions was born.
A blog post to start off a new year of filming weddings and creating movies of memories.
Well we started the year with a bang. I’ll be it was a chilly bang. We spent NYE with some wonderful people in Maple Creek Saskatchewan filming in a -32 wind chill.
