Haley Erdegard is a professional photographer from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She is proudly Canadian! Her wedding, family, and headshot work is vibrant and full of personality. She established her photography business in Edmonton in 2006 after a brief career in biochemistry, and loves being an entrepreneur. Haley’s particular skills of connecting with people and taking the stress out of having photographs taken allow her to create very natural, emotional imagery. She’s had the opportunity to speak at local, national and international photography conferences and private workshops, with a focus on business education. In her private life, she enjoys time at home with her husband and their four children, two dogs, many many plants, and lots of puzzles.
“Being able to represent Canada with one of my images was such an honour! Being able to share my client’s stories is such a joy, and to have them recognized at an international level is truly amazing.”
This was a really sweet moment while the couple was waiting for members of the bridal party to arrive.It showcases not only a beautiful location in my home of Edmonton, but also the rich cultural diversity of Canada. I’ve been very lucky to work with couples with a wide range of backgrounds, and to learn about marriage traditions from all over the world! The couple had a modern take on traditional Sikh wedding fashion, which also highlights how younger generations make traditions their own. This moment is so real, just hours after they became man and wife. As wedding photographers we don’t always have an opportunity to control our surroundings and circumstances, but sometimes we’re able to find magic right in front of us!
