Dragonfly Photography Blog  |  Photography by Rebecca Lippiatt  |  Edmonton, Alberta Canada Family and Lifestyle Photography bio picture
  • I specialise in lifestyle photography. Life is messy and grand, beautiful and challenging, and every one of those moments is precious. This is what I look for and what I photograph. This is what I want you to remember, when you look at your photographs years from now - how your heart was so big it felt like it would explode.

Mariana and Jamil are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are warm, welcoming and kind, and I love working with them.

I was honoured they asked me to photograph their wedding, and as expected, it was beautiful.

Mariana wanted backgrounds that contrasted with the elegance of their dress, so back alleys it was!

On the left is Kelly – I photographed his wedding several years ago – he’s on my masthead at the top, with the purple orchid.

I loved how Mariana and Jamil had their reception. As soon as they were announced they had their first dance. Shortly after, dinner began.

Thank you for asking me to photograph your wedding. It was an honour!

Happy birthday beautiful Vera!

And one of Lily, because she is just so darned cute.

Despite her claims to the contrary, Vera’s mom planned a great day for her. This yoga teacher had the kids enthralled for an hour and a half. She was awesome.

Up till 2 am making cakes (a princess one and a pirate one) was worth it when Vera saw and said “Mommy! They are so BEAUTIFUL”

I had the good fortune of photographing Mariana and Jamil’s maternity photos a couple of years ago. Now they are getting married, and we had a beautiful engagement/family session to get us ready for their day.

I am very much looking forward to this. They are the kindest people. Who make beautiful babies!

Gemma has been one of my clients since I first opened my photography business 8 years ago. I was so pleased to be able to photograph her wedding to Jeremiah.

Their wedding was at the beautiful St. Joseph’s Bascilica, downtown, and their reception at the Royal Glenora.

There was a whole lot of love in the room.

Gemma is from Mexico, and St. Joseph’s has a shrine to the Virgin de Guadelupe, where they went to say a prayer.

For an Alberta wedding, a truck seems more appropriate for a getaway car than a limo. Jeremiah plays the part well.

The “formals” were super fun.
