Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding [Robert & Carla]

September 29th, 2016

Robert and Carla, Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding

Robert and Carla made sure family played a prominent part in their Waterton Bayshore Inn autumn wedding. Their wedding party was mostly made up of siblings, their small guest count gave them more time to visit with family members, and most importantly, their adorable girls were a highlight of the day and got to enjoy their own special dance with Rob in the evening. They made it obvious what their priorities are in their life together :)

They chose such a gorgeous day at the end of the season in Waterton to hold their wedding. Their orange and red colour scheme perfectly complemented the fall colours and the dwindling tourists meant we got to visit a mostly empty Red Rock Canyon!

Carla and Robert were a joy to work with. They are madly in love and busted out hilarious jokes every few minutes. Their wedding party members were so warm and generous too, so it really must run in the family.

Congratulations, Robert and Carla!

Fort Macleod Autumn Bridal Portraits [Maxinne & GJ]

September 27th, 2016

Maxinne and GJ, Fort Macleod autumn bridal portraits

I had a wonderful time working with Maxinne and GJ just after their ceremony for their Fort Macleod autumn bridal portraits. They chose such a beautiful day to get married and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! Maxinne wore a stunning lace dress with long train and ivory coloured veil. Their dusty rose scheme popped out so amazing against the warm fall colours.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with a little more than half of their group before and it was a treat to meet the new additions! They are so much fun and always spend most of our time together joking and laughing. GJ and Maxinne are such a romantic couple and have found a perfect match in each other.

Congratulations, Maxinne and GJ!

Goat Mountain Getaway Autumn Wedding [Levi & Heather]

September 22nd, 2016

Levi and Heather, Goat Mountain Getaway Autumn Wedding

Just because you are planning a low key, intimate wedding, it doesn’t mean it can’t be elegant and gorgeously put together! Levi and Heather made great use of the rental property his parents run when they planned their Goat Mountain Getaway autumn wedding. The property was closed to vacationers for the weekend while Heather, Levi, and their closest friends and family gathered outside (and shed many happy tears) for their ceremony and reception. They could not have picked a more perfect weekend to capture the fall colours in the Crowsnest Pass. As a special touch, Levi’s father performed the ceremony (and was restricted to no more than three f-bombs!).

I loved how many amazing locations we were able to use at Goat Mountain Getaway. Although the property is fairly small, it was compressed with forests, mountain views, a teepee and even a tire swing! It was then so easy to drive a minute across the highway for the amazing views on Old Frank Road before we headed over to Lundbreck Falls.

We really appreciated being able to spend so much time with just Heather and Levi (who chose not to have a wedding party). The two of them are so madly in love and natural together, constantly melting into each other arms. Levi’s range of emotions and Heather’s ear to ear grin as she approached him in the aisle really showed how crazy they are for each other.

Congratulations, Levi and Heather!

Barnwell Equestrian Portraits [Tayler]

September 20th, 2016

Barnwell equestrian portraits

This was my third time going out to Tayler’s family acreage in Barnwell to spend an amazing afternoon with her and her adorable pets. This year we focused a little more on the equestrian portraits when Tayler took one of her horses out to the field for some riding action shots. I love seeing her interact with her animals. She already has such a kind personality but the way she interacts with the pets, as well as how sweetly they respond to her, shows how nurturing she truly is. Being such an animal lover myself, I love being around this!

As usual, Tayler rocked her session and is always a natural in front of the camera. She makes my job so easy!

Crowsnest Pass Night Time Wedding [Desirée & Craig]

September 15th, 2016

Desiree and Craig, Crowsnest Pass night time wedding

Desirée and Craig wanted to reflect their love for the live music scene by hosting a Crowsnest Pass night time wedding at The Greenhill Hotel in Blairmore. With Craig being a musician, their concert-themed wedding was perfect! In addition to closing out the evening with an open jam stage with their friends, their decorations were accented with records and musical notes.

I noticed back at their engagement session that they have such huge emotions around each other and the wedding day was no exception. Craig was so overwhelmed during the ceremony while Des acted as his rock, wiping away his tears. They later had this hilarious exchange…

Des: Are you okay to drive?
Craig: I haven’t been drinking…
Des: I mean emotionally!

One special touch in their wedding was how much they included Desirée’s son. Not only was he their ring bearer, but he joined them in a hug after the first kiss and had a special marriage certificate to take part in the signing of.

Congratulations, Desirée and Craig!

p.s. Special thanks to Nate at Rydography for filling in for Cam as second shooter / assistant!

Leitch Collieries Engagement Photos [Desirée & Craig]

September 13th, 2016

Leitch Collieries engagement photos

If their Leitch Collieries engagement photos were any indication, Desirée and Craig’s wedding is going to be a blast! They are so happy together that they couldn’t help but burst out laughing every few minutes during photos. It’s so amazing to see this intensity of happiness! They have found such fantastic partners in each other. They are equal parts madly in love and not having to take themselves seriously.

I’m very glad these photos happened as I had to drive through what easily could have become a tornado to reach them. Can you believe how perfect the weather was for their photos after all that? We didn’t have a single drop of rain threaten us and the cloudy skies made the architecture there look like a dramatic old castle.
