University of Lethbridge Summer Wedding [Scott & Katie]

July 2nd, 2015

Scott and Katie, University of Lethbridge summer wedding photography

After knowing Scott and Katie for many years it was an honor to be a part of their University of Lethbridge summer wedding. Their wedding was such a joyous coming together of both families, with guests traveling from as far as England and Abu Dhabi to attend! This may have been the happiest wedding we have ever been to :)

Scott and Katie met while attending the U of L, so it made sense to bring their joining back there and have their ceremony at the University’s Markin Hall. It was a beautiful, bright location and the music of their sextet brass band perfectly filled the space. Scott and Katie were both music majors so music played a very important part throughout their day.

We had so much fun with them and their bridal party, who were all so positive, happy, and goofy despite the CRAZY heatwave we had to deal with.

When photos were finished, we headed to their reception at Paradise Canyon for more live music and LOTS of dancing!

Congratulations, Scott and Katie!

Summer River Bottom Family Photos [Lily, Emily & Travis]

June 30th, 2015

summer river bottom family photos

The evening is a perfect time for summer river bottom family photos during a heat wave! Lily came down to Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge with her mom and dad for their family photos and had so much fun exploring the coulees. She loved running through the trails and having her parents pick her up to swing her, but probably her favorite thing of all were fake sneezes. The bigger your fake sneeze, the harder she would laugh! She even got pretty good at faking her own by the end of the session :)

Beaver Mines Couples Photography [S & K]

Beaver Mines couple photos on farm overlooking mountains

S & K invited me out to their farm for some Beaver Mines couples photography, and I was so breath-taken by their views! With paths through trees with changing leaves, views of Crowsnest Mountain, and valleys of gorgeous brush leading into distant mountains, we had no shortage of locations to use. They are such a gorgeous couple and so obviously in love; I swear their eyes actually twinkled when they looked at each other. Unfortunately their boys were away that weekend and couldn’t join in photos, but I think that made them much more romantic :) Their old dog Dixie followed us along and loved the adventure!

Stanley Park Family Photos [Linda]

Stanley Park family photos

I met Linda waaaaay back in university and when we recently reconnected, we discussed how fun it would be to get together to update her family photos. Since her mom lives in Calgary, the timing worked out perfectly when I was passing through to make a stop in Stanley Park for their family session with her son Teagan, her mom, and Teagan’s dad.

Teagan was promised only a few serious photos and then he was able to let loose! I was pleased to find the whole family is goofy like this and made the BEST silly faces for photos (I think everyone learned from Grandma, the master of silly faces!).

Baby Boy Photo Session in Lethbridge [Carson]

Lethbridge baby boy photo session

Courtney and Melanie welcomed me into their home for their little Carson’s first baby boy photo session. They got lucky with him because he’s such a laid back, easy going baby! For the most part his fussing only involves sighing loudly and he was pretty tolerant of all the modeling we made him do. Their new house was a great location choice with rich colors and I loved the little blue corner I found to tuck Carson into. :)
