Welcome to My name is Carolyn Budreski, and I am a licensed, Federally Incorporated Calgary Professional Photographer (Whew! That was a lot to fit into one sentence, wasn't it!) I provide professional, creative, fun service across Canada, but mostly within Southern Alberta and Interior BC.  I love what I do, and I have fun doing it! I want you to love your wedding photos as much as I love capturing them.!

Over the pandemic, I spent time in the film industry, learning from the best of the best. I worked on shows such as :"Fargo”, “Ride”, “High School”,”The Last of Us” "Land", "Under the banner of Heaven", "Joe Pickett", "Fraggle Rock", "Jann" "Black Summer 2", "A Teacher", “Heartland”, “Cape Holly Christmas”, “Retreat to you”, “Chasing Midnight”, Black Summer 2”. Learn more about me here. 

I'm excited to take everything that I learned in the Film & Television World and bring it to your wedding photos!

Let's talk about you! What is your wedding vision? Do you prefer Light and Airy? Or Dark and Moody?  What kind of photos draw you in?  If I have learned anything in my 15+ years of shooting weddings, it isn't about me - it is about YOU! If you want light, airy, boho, blushy, firey, smokey - you name it, my answer is always, "yes, I can do that." If  you like my work so far, please send me a quick note, and we can connect. I'd love to learn more about your big day, and see if we are a fit!

 If you are looking for something that you don't see here, please don't be shy to contact me and ask!  I'm always up for new creative challenges.
