Coleman Engagement Photos [Stephanie & Travis]

July 28th, 2015

Coleman engagement photos

Stephanie and Travis are getting married in the Crowsnest Pass next year and took advantage of Coleman engagement photos while I was down for the weekend this summer. We were joined by their very well trained dogs Luka and Lucky as a trial run to see if the dogs are well behaved enough to attend the wedding; the dogs listened so well so I think they passed the test!

It was a gorgeous morning at the Miner’s Path and finally cooled off from the rain the day before. Stephanie and Travis were great in front of the camera for their first professional photos!

Summer Waterton Mountain Wedding [Ryan & Jennifer]

July 23rd, 2015

Ryan & Jen, summer Waterton mountain wedding

Ryan and Jen had a summer Waterton mountain wedding, which is always one of our favorite places to visit! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Waterton Community Center, with their ceremony taking place on the lawn outside overlooking the gorgeous mountains that surround the townsite.

They were hilarious with their wedding party, and Ryan was especially all about jumping into silly poses. We are very grateful to them that they handled the wind so well seeing as how the prettiest places were the ones where the wind could almost knock you down that day!

Congratulations, Ryan and Jen!

Lethbridge Evening Maternity Session [Sacha]

July 21st, 2015

Lethbridge evening maternity session

I met Sacha and Danny a couple years ago for their family photos, and this summer they will be welcoming a new baby into their family! Before the baby arrives, they got together with the kids for a Lethbridge evening maternity session at the university’s lake. Sacha looks radiant and the whole family is so happy and excited for the baby’s arrival.

The last time we did photos was one of the coldest days of that year while these photos were on one of the hottest, so hopefully our next session will be somewhere in between :) Like last time, they were amazing at posing through the extreme weather!

Springbreak Summer Wedding [Colby & Allison]

July 16th, 2015

Colby & Allison, Springbreak summer wedding

Colby and Allison held their Springbreak summer wedding at Hillcrest’s beautiful greenhouse at the base of the mountains. Allison looked like a Greek goddess in her one shoulder wedding dress. Her floor length veil was a perfect accent in the wind that is so common in the Crowsnest Pass, though we had a little less wind than expected so Cam helped out with the veil motion a few times ;)

The wedding party was so much fun to spend the afternoon with as everyone was having such a great time, plus this was my first time having one of my cousins included! Colby and Allison have already been together for a few years and the deep connection and friendship they share was obvious.

The Springbreak Flower Farm was a stunning venue for the whole day, starting with Allison and the girls getting ready at the bed and breakfast and finishing with their greenhouse ceremony and reception. Her and Colby planned their day so their guests could go straight to the party, with all of their photos taking place earlier in the day and their ceremony in the evening. Unfortunately their planned outdoor ceremony was met with rain, but inside the greenhouse was just as beautiful with all of the flowers and lights.

We were so happy that the bride and groom set aside time for evening portraits during their reception. Springbreak had such pretty spots tucked away in it!

Congratulations, Colby and Allison!

Henderson Lake Summer Newborn Portraits [Evelyn]

July 14th, 2015

Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits

I love seeing childhood friends starting their families. This summer was Andrea’s turn when her and Tylor welcomed their brand new baby girl Evelyn into their home! Just a little while after Evelyn arrived, we met up for Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits on an absolutely gorgeous evening in Lethbridge. Evelyn was adorable in her pretty white dress and was one of the sleepiest babies I’ve ever worked with, though she did open one eye at me for a moment to check out what I was doing :)

Andrea and Tylor are so in love with her and radiating so much happiness. It’s wonderful seeing them together. I can’t wait to see how adorable she will be dressed at their wedding next year… with Andrea’s amazing wedding planning skills I know it will be super cute!

Galt Museum Summer Wedding Photos [Andrew & Kristen]

July 9th, 2015

Andrew & Kristen, Galt Museum summer wedding photos

Andrew and Kristen planned a very classic, stylish event for their Galt Museum summer wedding photos. Most ceremonies at the Galt take place inside the museum but the couple wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous view of the coulees on the bluff outside. They had the absolute best luck that day, finishing their ceremony in the sun and all photos just before the big storm moved in.

They planned their outdoor ceremony and Galt reception close together so their guests could go straight to cocktail hour. To make the best use of our time, we met up with each part of the wedding party just before the ceremony. No one needed warming up for photos; they all had us laughing immediately!

We loved working with Kristen and Andrew for their photos. They are SUCH a gorgeous couple and looked stunning in Kristen’s high back lace dress and Andrew’s navy suit.

Congratulations, Andrew and Kristen!
