Coaldale Family Farm Photos [George & Sharon and the kids]

Coaldale family farm photos

Due to some travel delays amongst their children, George and Sharon hadn’t been able to get a proper family photo at their daughter’s wedding last autumn. They made up for it this summer with Coaldale family farm photos at their beautiful home. Most of the kids don’t like having their photo taken, but I think they did a pretty good job getting through it to make their mom happy :)

Pincher Creek Cabin Family Photos [Barry & Linda]

October 19th, 2017

Pincher Creek cabin family photos

It’s been a few years since both of their children’s weddings so it was great to get together with Barry and Linda’s family again! They were spending the weekend at their cabin in Southern Alberta and figured it was time for some updated family photos while everyone was together. Barry built the cabin near Pincher Creek himself and it’s been a treasured family getaway spot over the years. As the family has grown with marriage, they’ve only added more laughter and love to their weekends away. Although the mountain views from the property were obstructed with smoke, the view from on top of their hill was still incredible!

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017 in Galt Gardens

The last few zombie walks have taken place on Saturdays during wedding season so I’ve missed way too many of them. This year it took place on my first Saturday off! The compromise is that it was late in the fall and it was COLD. Despite the wind, the turn out was pretty great and we all had fun “attacking” the victims who came to watch :)

A huge thanks to Katt Panic for organizing the event this year!

Lethbridge Coulee Maternity Family Photos [Melissa]

Lethbridge coulee maternity family photos

I met Melissa’s family a few years ago when they were expecting and now I was excited to hear baby #4 is on the way! We went for an adventure in the beautiful landscape where the kids often play near their home for their Lethbridge coulee maternity family photos. Even though it wasn’t technically autumn yet, everything had such a beautiful golden glow! The three children have so much fun together skipping, jumping, and searching for insects in the grass. They’re going to love having a new friend to go exploring with!

Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding [Raiven & Jonathan]

October 5th, 2017

Raiven & Jonathan, Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding

What a fantastic way to finish off the wedding season, with a Lethbridge Norland Estate autumn wedding! We got to spend the day at our favorite venue with Raiven and Jonathan, who are some of the nicest people I have met. They planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony amongst the freshly changed fall colours. I asked the rain very nicely to wait until we were done photos and it totally listened to me ;)

Raiven and Jonathan had such a laid back wedding. Raiven finished getting ready with plenty of time to have a first look with Jonathan then visit with their parents in the social room before the ceremony, and later on their reception felt more like a dinner party with family than a super formal event. With everything taking place at one location, they were able to take little breaks to spend time with loved ones in between photos.

I loved how Raiven constantly burst into laughter throughout the day and how Jonathan fought back tears at all of his first looks at her (her coming down the aisle was even more powerful than their first look!). They are so sweet together and their families are already so close, you couldn’t even tell which half of the couple they belonged to.

Congratulations, Raiven and Jonathan!

Gem of the West Wedding Ceremony [Kelti & Matthew]

September 28th, 2017

Kelti & Matthew, Gem of the West wedding ceremony

Kelti and Matthew held their Gem of the West wedding ceremony on the cusp of autumn with the most important people in their lives in attendance. Kelti is heavily involved in the community so choosing a venue with so much historic value was such a perfect fit.

Kelti, Matthew, and all of their wedding party got ready at the Charles Street Suites, which is conveniently decorated in their wedding colours! They kept to separate floors so that they could share a first look on the staircase before heading out for photos.

Kelti and Matthew both give off so much positive energy and had us laughing all day. It was clear to see why they are so amazing together while watching them interact; they bounce that energy off each other nonstop and hardly ever quit smiling. They, their siblings, and their wedding party were constantly hilarious and never took anything too seriously – even when tackle chases gave way to ripped pants early in the day.

Congratulations, Kelti and Matthew!
