10 summer evening family photos Summer Evening Family Photos [Lucas, Michelle & Joe]
(zoomie photo bomb!)

Michelle, Joe, Lucas, and their fur baby Bear met me for some summer evening family photos, deep in the mosquito infested parks of Lethbridge! Aside from having to swat at mosquitoes, it was such a beautiful evening down by the University of Lethbridge lake. Lucas and Bear both had a great time playing in the trees, and Bear eventually gave up on photos for a nice cool swim! They are such a sweet family and clearly love their little boy so much. They had no trouble making him smile and laugh when they played with him!

I had a great afternoon with this cute, young couple for their Lethbridge autumn farm wedding. We met up just after their post-ceremony luncheon for family photos and followed with portraits of them and their wedding party. They chose such a beautiful farm to take their photos on! We had no shortage of locations with old wagons, a gorgeous pond, wooden swing, and huge flower beds. We also made a few stops throughout Lethbridge to get our iconic fields and big blue skies :)

Congratulations, S & A!

CASA Grad Session [Hanna]

07 casa grad session CASA Grad Session [Hanna]

Hanna was such a treat to work with! We had her CASA grad session on a beautiful summer evening and lucked out with no rain so we could also go outside. She had such a stunning, perfectly fitting white gown, as well as a classy scarf to change things up (complete with a gorgeous brooch from her aunt). Hanna is so charismatic and has such a wonderful huge laugh, making her super easy to photograph.

CASA made the perfect backdrop for the beginning of her photos. The warm colors there really made her dress pop and it looked fantastic for the Audrey Hepburn, classic vibe she loves. Galt Gardens, conveniently across the street, had such beautiful sunlight by the time we went outside!

Elegant Crowsnest Pass Wedding [Jeff & Kayla]

Kayla and Jeff had a beautiful, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding at the end of summer with so many well thought out details! The hints of pink, gold, and white throughout their day added perfect touches and I especially loved their matching balloons (a special thanks to the bridesmaids for inflating those before the ceremony!).

I love seeing how happy Kayla and Jeff are around each other and they were just as cuddly as at their winter engagement session, even though they didn’t need to keep each other warm this time!

They started their day with a ceremony at the Catholic Church in Blairmore and followed with a reception at the Coleman Sportsplex. They did a gorgeous job working their pink and gold colors into the decorations and candy/sundae bar, and you couldn’t recognize the venue as being a curling arena!

Congratulations, Kayla & Jeff!

Castle Mountain Outdoor Wedding [Allen & Anna]

10 castle mountain outdoor wedding Castle Mountain Outdoor Wedding [Allen & Anna]

Allen and Anna had both done the traditional wedding before and wanted something special this time around! By combining their love of camping and the outdoors, having the whole party in nature, and throwing in touches of a cute redneck theme, they ended up with a unique wedding that was totally them!

They held their Castle Mountain outdoor wedding at the Syncline group campsite just minutes from the ski hill, and what a gorgeous location it was! Their ceremony took place amongst the huge trees next to the river and they had a beautiful tent sent up nearby for their reception dinner. All of their guests were able to camp right on site making it super easy for everyone to attend.

Their wedding party members were very special to them, being made up mostly of their children (including fur baby Buster as the ring bearer, who rocked a matching vest). It was such a meaningful way to signify the blending of their families.

We went off site for a few photos at the old cabin on the highway and were definitely running back when we heard growling in the bushes! ;)

Congratulations, Allen & Anna!

Markin Hall Engagement Photography [Scott & Katie]

The downpour outside forced us indoors, but it was fitting since Scott and Katie’s wedding ceremony next year might also take place in Markin Hall at the University of Lethbridge. We went to the U of L for their engagement photos during their very brief visit back to Lethbridge and it was awesome to see them again after so long!

Scott and Katie were such a cute couple from the very beginning of their relationship and they definitely haven’t lost that spark. Since they’re both musicians, I’m really looking forward to all the fun music details they will have at their wedding next summer!
