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!

Mackenzie rocked these photos! We had such amazing saturated colors during the first round of autumn leaf changes here in Lethbridge and I was so eager to capture them in some outdoor fall portraiture. Mackenzie was a perfect model, especially since her favorite dress color complemented the foliage so perfectly. It was awesome to catch up with her since she just moved back to Lethbridge and she was such a dream to work with!

So cute! I was so excited for Cheryl and Josh’s autumn wedding following their indoor Lethbridge winter engagement session and could already tell how much fun it was going to be spending their day with them. Cheryl and Josh were total naturals in front of the camera and super easy to work with, and I’m sure they appreciated being able to do the photos in the warm indoors when it was so chilly outside :) Luckily Cheryl had a cute animal hat and was brave enough to go outside for a few final snaps!

p.s. How adorable is Cheryl’s dress?

Coaldale Autumn Wedding [Willem & Jamie]

Willem and Jamie had a gorgeous Coaldale autumn wedding with touches of baby blue and pink and burlap accents. It gave everything a perfect rustic feel for all of our farm locations we went to for photos!

We started out the day with their ceremony at the Canadian Reformed Church in Coaldale and after portraits headed to the Gem of the West Museum for their reception.

It was so much fun working with Willem’s family again and now getting to have Jamie’s family in the mix! They were able to include all of their sisters by having the younger girls as junior bridesmaids and a flower girl, and the main bridesmaids were sisters as well :) The sisters are all so close so it felt just like having their best friends in the party. I loved seeing Jamie and Willem’s glowing smiles at each other all day, not to mention how much fun they clearly have together :)

Congratulations, Willem & Jamie!
