For photographs that come alive.
Based in Calgary, Alberta & available for travel worldwide.

Imagine a photograph that takes you back to a feeling in time. You remember how the wind pushed your hair back, the thud of your heart, the way his hands feel like sunshine on your skin. How alive you are. How in love you are. I'm Florence Fern, a photographer for those marching to the beat of their own drum, embracing their weird, and living life out loud.

Let's make some magic.

Itʼs not just about the pretty pictures. I want you to feel the connection, the subtlety, and remember exactly how every moment FELT. We create an experience, for photographs that feel, breathe, and come alive. Iʼll just be that good old friend that shows up, fancy camera in tow, and we talk about everything BUT the weather. I wanna hear the nitty gritty of what makes you YOU, and go on a little side adventure hunting down the best damn light we can find.

There will be lots of laughing guaranteed...and possibly even spontaneous dance moves! Iʼm a ‘hands onʼ photographer, and Iʼll give you all the direction you need to feel like youʼre crushing it on camera. Weʼll get a flow, make some juicy vibes...and if you trust me....things are gonna get real good, real quick. I want you to come away feeling on fire, and more in love with this incredible life. The bomb photographs are just a bonus.

Experience

a little about me

I've got big dreams, a smile that slays, and put way too much hot sauce on my food. My mom named me Tamara Florence Fern. A lot of name for a tiny bundle, but I guess she knew what was up. I'm one of a kind, next level, and quirky as hell...but Iʼm all heart. Youʼll feel that from the day we meet to the time we are both crying over your gorgeous photo gallery. A spontaneous decision to buy a "fancy pants" camera before a backpacking trip led me straight into documenting love, light, and connection for incredible people from all over the globe. 10 years, 250+ weddings & countless portrait sessions later, and Iʼm still obsessed with what I do.

Photography is my vehicle to create, to show the way I see people. Beautiful in our humanity, graceful in our flaws, and humble in our divinity. It would be my honour to photograph you.

About Me

the experience

Based in Calgary, Alberta...a perfect place for dreamy mountain weddings, but I’ve always loved to travel for destination weddings...including living in the Dominican Republic for 4 years! Oceans or mountains...no matter where you choose to marry the love of your life, I’ll be there to tell your story and create space for real, romantic moments to unfold. All you have to do is enjoy being with the love of your life...and your butterflies doing backflips!

My favourite part of a boudoir session is showing her the back of the camera, and hearing an excited laugh..."I can’t believe that’s actually me!" Babe that is you! I love celebrating the newfound confidence that follows every boudoir session. These sessions are designed to explore your sensual side. Just for you...or you can include your hunny :) Fancy drinks are mandatory. Clothing is optional.

Time flies by, and babies grow up so fast. My lifestyle sessions are less about forced poses, and more about enjoying sweet moments with your kiddos. I'm here to document the tender moments of being a new mama, the playfulness of your toddlers, and all the beautiful chaos that comes with being a family.

- Danielle

"When she came to my hotel for my trash the dress photos it was pouring rain. She stayed while we tried to wait out the rain for almost 2 hours without the smile leaving her face.
