New Dayton Farm Engagement Photos [Lanna & Mike]

New Dayton farm engagement photos

I love when couples choose locations that are very personal to them, and for Mike and Lanna’s New Dayton farm engagement photos, they choose their own farm! After driving through a herd of fuzzy cattle, their hilltop home is surrounded by old trees, gorgeous dirt roads, and well-manicured flowers, while nearby are huge ponds and vintage trucks. We definitely had no shortage of locations to use!

Both Lanna and Mike have such great senses of humor and were so fun to spend the evening with. Lanna is especially bubbly and giggled through the whole session, making them very easy to photograph :)

Autumn Waterton Lakes Wedding [Kevin & Ashley]

October 1st, 2015

Kevin & Ashley, autumn Waterton Lakes wedding

Kevin and Ashley chose an amazing time of year for their autumn Waterton Lakes wedding; the park was nearly empty, beautiful fall colors lined the mountains, and it was still warm enough to get married outside. Even the crazy wind couldn’t spoil their perfect day! With each gust, Ashley cheered like she was on an amusement park ride because she was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.

There was so much joy throughout the day, especially at the reception. The speeches were full of laughter and they both had the hugest grins during their first dance. They are so perfect together!

They held both their ceremony and reception Waterton Lakes Lodge with photos taken throughout the town site and at Cameron Lake.

Congratulations, Kevin and Ashley!

Whoop Up Days Engagement Photos [Annelies & Kyle]

September 29th, 2015

Lethbridge Whoop Up Days engagement photos

Annelies was torn between doing Whoop Up Days engagement photos and using her fiancĂ© Kyle’s dairy farm as a backdrop… so why not just use both? ;)

We started out at his farm just outside of Lethbridge on a beautiful evening with golden sunlight. There were so many great spots there as we drove around (barns, beautiful old trees, an amazing corn field) and we were definitely of interest to the cows who stopped eating dinner to pose for their own photos.

When we were finished at the farm and the couple went through a quick wardrobe change, we headed back into Lethbridge to visit the Whoop Up Days fair. It’s usually tough to schedule photos to happen during the limited time the fair is here so I’m very glad we could make it work there with all the lights and bright colors.

I can’t wait for their winter wedding coming up!

Park Lake Wedding Photos [William & Becky]

September 24th, 2015

William & Becky, Park Lake wedding photos

William and Becky had a beautiful early autumn wedding around their home turf in Southern Alberta. I had already done photos with them a couple times before so I knew how fun they were before we even started. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so crazy in love. It’s been amazing to see how much more obvious their love has become since I first met them in the winter!

After getting ready in Nobleford, we headed over to the Bethel Free Reformed Church in Monarch for their ceremony and wedding service. For their portraits I was excited to finally get to go to the Lethbridge Corn Maze, which has been on my wedding photography bucket list for a while ;) Their time spent not getting lost in the maze was followed by Park Lake wedding photos. We had already done their engagement photos there but with the new autumn colors, it looked like a brand new location and worked perfectly with the yellow bridesmaid dresses.

Congratulations, Wink and Becky!

Intimate Milk River Wedding [Chad & Samantha]

September 22nd, 2015

Samantha & Chad, intimate Milk River wedding

After already sharing so much of their life together, Chad and Samantha decided to make it official with an intimate Milk River wedding. Traveling from Calgary with their beautiful girls, they chose Milk River for its proximity to family and small town charm even though neither of them are originally from there. They ended up with a beautiful day where the big, blue rural Alberta skies opened up after weeks of rain and smoke.

They started out their day with a short ceremony at St. Paul’s United Church with only their closest family and friends in attendance. The church had a beautiful courtyard so we mainly stayed there, but had a chance to drive out a bit for views of fields and mountains.

Samantha and Chad are so sweet, which came across in every single interaction with them. They are both so bubbly and happy, it’s clear to see how they are still such a perfect match after all these years together.

Congratulations, Chad and Samantha!

Autumn Galt Museum Wedding [Greg & Lasca]

September 17th, 2015

Lasca & Greg, autumn Galt Museum wedding photos

We loved finally starting out the fall season with Greg and Lasca’s autumn Galt Museum wedding here in Lethbridge. They chose a rustic theme with blues and whites that looked great against the yellow outside.

After their ceremony in the Galt Museum’s viewing gallery, we were joined outside by their families. Lasca comes from a large family of brothers so it was a really big deal their only sister got married!

We stuck around the museum area while they had fun with their wedding party and their cute little dog Ketta gave them lots of kisses, then headed over to the west side to make use of the changing leaves. I loved watching when Greg and Lasca let loose and acted silly around each other (including a stick sword fight) and everyone was proud of how well Greg did in the spotlight all day when he’s quite shy :)

Congratulations, Lasca and Greg!
