As a wedding photographer, I see A LOT of different gowns.  When I first meet my brides, I try to imagine what their dress will be like.  Will it be sophisticated and traditional or dreamy and bohemian?  When I photographed my first Lis Simon bridal gown, I was completely smitten.  The best part is that this designer brand is based right here in Calgary and many styles are available at Cameo & Cufflinks. I reached out to the marketing team at Lis Simon to get the scoop.  Read on…

How it came to be?

Lis Simon was founded in 2009 by a husband and wife team. It all started in a small apartment in Calgary, Alberta.  The inspiration for Lis Simon came from a childhood love of weddings.  In fact,  the name Lis Simon is derived from the two childhood stuffies that our co-founder used to play “wedding” with, Lis and Simon.   Proof that childhood dreams do come true.

Ironically, the first time I photographed a Lis Simon gown was in Charleston, South Carolina.  Take a look…
