Oh Canada {iphoneography}

We just got back home from an awesome 12 days in Canada. We go up every summer to visit my family and this year we also had the pleasure of attending my brother's wedding. I have a lot of photos from our trip to share but for now I thought I would give you a litte recap of our trip via iphone pictures. Enjoy!

 Arriving in Calgary!

 Driving through Kananskis
The backdrop for my brother's wedding. It was a-maz-ing!!! The ceremony was so simple and intimate. Aaron actually married them and I shot the wedding so I will have more to share about that on another post :)
The reception took place on a different day at a cute bed and breakfast across the street from my parent's house. On the day before the big party I went to go check it out and fell in love with this little ranch!

Talia loved feeding hay to the goats and horses

One of my favorite parts about Alberta in the Summer is that it doesn't get dark until 11:00pm! This is not so great when you are trying to put a 2 year old to bed at a decent time... 
Here I am trying to burn out some of Talia's energy at 9:30pm :)
My parents live a little south of the city. I loved driving these country roads
Me and little man at the reception. He was looking quite dapper in his little bow tie.
I love this picture that Aaron shot of Tali
Thanks to the generosity of a friend of a friend we were able to spend a night at a beautiful home in Canmore.

Aaron snapped this shot of Talia on our flight back home
Checking out the views from up in the sky
When we were checking in at the airport the lady asked Talia where we were going. Her reply was, "See Bob and Marley." And sure enough the first thing she wanted to do when we got home was jump in the pool and see her dogs :)
