Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding [Jennifer & David]

July 6th, 2017

Jennifer & David, Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding

Jennifer and David have already built a life together but decided to make it official this year! They threw a party for their family and closest friends by having a Southern Alberta Art Gallery wedding.

The years they’ve already been together have only made their love grow deeper. They had the hugest grins when they saw each other during their first look and constantly fought back tears during the ceremony at the SAAG. They are such a sweet couple and are so perfect for each other.

Their reception at the SAAG was filled with lots of dancing and laughter. Instead of a sit down dinner, they served a spread of creative (and delicious!) appetizers from LA Chefs, allowing their guests more time to mingle.

Congratulations, Jennifer and David!

Nicholas Sheran Extended Family Photos [Herb & Jenny]

July 4th, 2017

Nicholas Sheran extended family photos

This family photo ended up being downsized a little… Enough of Jenny and Herb’s grandchildren fell ill the weekend of their Nicholas Sheran extended family photos that they decided to just do photos with their children, bringing our 250 person session down to 22! Despite the lack of children, I still had to make some silly faces to get smiles out of a few of the men :)

Herb and Jenny are such a sweet couple and show so much kindness towards their family. All of the siblings are hilarious together and I got to enjoy an hour of teasing banter as they hassled each other. It was wonderful to have their children get together for their 60th wedding anniversary!

Indian Battle Park Couples Portraits [Joanne & Duane]

June 29th, 2017

Indian Battle Park couples portraits

The wind couldn’t keep Joanne and Duane away from their photos forever! We had to reschedule their first session because the wind decided to get really crazy. Sure enough, our backup date ended up being super windy again! (This *is* Lethbridge, after all.) Instead of rescheduling for a third date, we went deep into the trees in the river bottom for Indian Battle Park couples portraits and avoided the wind (almost) entirely.

Joanne and Duane are ridiculously cute together. They act just like high school age sweethearts, giggling at each other all the time and sneaking kisses without me even asking for them :) I had a great time with them and appreciated how well they tolerated the newly hatched mosquitoes.

Crowsnest Pass Outdoor Newborn Session [Parker]

June 27th, 2017

Crowsnest Pass outdoor newborn session

It was lovely to meet brand new Parker for his Crowsnest Pass outdoor newborn session at the Miner’s Path in Coleman. We went back to the same location where his mom and dad did their maternity photos and got to capture the changing of the seasons as they waited for his arrival.

Parker’s parents are so in love with him and can’t stop showering him with kisses. He loved hanging out with them in the forest for the morning and even though we were all eaten by mosquitoes, he was lucky and they left him alone! He was so mellow about the whole experience. Parker’s only complaint was that he had to start out in little animal booties and he definitely prefers to be barefoot and feel nature ;)

Galt Museum Engagement Session [Raiven & Jonathan]

June 22nd, 2017

Indian Battle Park engagement photos

Raiven and Jonathan couldn’t decide between a Galt Museum engagement session or one in the river bottom, so why not both? They picked a gorgeous spring evening for it too!

I loved watching how great Raiven and Jonathan are together. It’s obvious they are best friends; whenever we’d have a moment to pause between photos, they’d eagerly be telling each other stories and making each other laugh! I can’t wait to see how happy they are at their wedding later this year :)

Kamloops Rainbow Themed Wedding [Behind the Scenes at Chris & Sarah’s Wedding]

June 20th, 2017

behind the scenes at Chris and Sarah's wedding, Kamloops rainbow themed wedding

Last month I had the privilege of being in my best friend Sarah’s wedding party, which was a strange change after usually being behind the camera at weddings! Sarah is a photographer herself and if you’ve been with me for a long time, you may have seen her second shoot weddings for me in my early years.

Sarah has also modelled for me quite a few times with her horses…

On her wedding day she hired the insanely talented David & Sherry Photography to capture most of the day but asked me to photograph her getting ready at the guest house she operates with her now husband Chris, and I resumed for dance floor candids once David and Sherry left at the end of the evening. Be sure to follow them to see Sarah’s official photos from the day!

Sarah and Chris held their Kamloops rainbow themed wedding at Rainbow Roost, a beautiful farm on the city’s outskirts with a ton of adorable animals. The wedding was distinctly Sarah and Chris with their touches of humour and inclusion of their pets, Forest the dog and Theo the horse. I was honoured to share such a beautiful day with my friend and think they did an amazing job pulling it all together.
