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]

41 coaldale autumn wedding 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!

Terrifying Tami, the Scary Clown [Personal Project]

01 halloween scary clown photos Terrifying Tami, the Scary Clown [Personal Project]

It’s my favorite time of year, Halloween season! Not much is scarier than a creepy clown (at least in my opinion), so I felt some scary clown photos were in order this year!

When I saw Tami do a cartwheel at a previous modeling collaboration, I knew we had to do something creepy and weird, and the clown thing just fell into place. With Katt Panic’s magic touch, Tami transformed into a clown much scarier than I could have imagined. (I loved Tami’s reaction when we finally showed her the finished face!) I love that Tami has such colorful hair as it was the perfect touch to complete the look.

It was great to finally meet Heather and Garrett after our email exchanges, and I’m so excited for their Waterton wedding next summer! They are super cute and hilarious so we spent the whole time laughing through their Pavan Park engagement photos. We had beautiful golden light down in the river bottom (even though it’s starting to look like autumn, yikes!) and this couple was so easy to photograph.

I can’t wait to see them again next summer!
