Lethbridge has really been showing off its local talent with all of the great theatre we’ve had, and Evil Dead The Musical was definitely no exception! Put on a couple years ago, Hatrix Theater Company presented this popular musical at the Moose Hall over two weeks around Halloween and the actors and crew did an amazing job. They were very true to the musical, including three rows of Splatter Zone as the show rightfully should have. I had the fortune of being the official photographer and even from my “safe” location on the side wing, I still ended up with some fake blood splattered on me :)

I was so impressed I made sure to return to a second showing without my camera to take full advantage of the splatter zone. I’m pretty glad I wore goggles to the show!

Great work, everyone!

Zombie Girl Portraits Lethbridge [Hope]

Hope was adorable for her portrait session… but I think something may have been wrong with her? Maybe she wasn’t feeling well that day? ;)

I worked with Hope as part of a Halloween themed photographer/model collaboration and wanted to take some gory but lovely zombie girl portraits of her. Of course I had to go as traditional and cutesy as possible for her portrait poses to juxtapose all the blood and gore she had going on! Hope did a fantastic job on her own makeup and managed to keep her contacts in despite the crazy wind making them shift :)

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Brandi and Jeff were the lucky winners of my birthday contest I ran earlier this year on Facebook and it was so fun to finally meet them and their adorable triplets for family photos at the University of Lethbridge park! Brandi warned me that getting the three of them coordinated and focused at the same time would be a challenge but the kids were the best little models. They smiled, laughed, and had so much fun the entire time. This was actually my first time working with triplets and it was much less daunting than I ever expected :)

Sunny Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Josh & Cheryl]

It’s a little harsh to start your wedding day needing an EpiPen, but Cheryl and Josh are tough and had an awesome day despite the rocky beginning (plus it sure adds to the quirky memories of the day!). We had perfect weather for a sunny Lethbridge autumn wedding, with beautiful fall colors to make their vivid wedding party outfits really pop.

After the girls got ready, we headed over to the Immanuel Lutheran Church on the west side where the minister worked awesome Star Wars jokes into the ceremony. The west side had so many amazing locations this autumn that we didn’t even have to leave it until it was time to go to their reception at the Italian Canadian Club :)

There were a few wedding party crossovers from previous weddings and as usual, they were such a fun group! Cheryl and Josh are amazing in front of the camera and you can tell how madly in love they are every moment they are together.

Congratulations, Josh & Cheryl!
