Lethbridge River Bottom Anniversary Portraits [Charleen & Chris]

Lethbridge River Bottom anniversary portraits

It was great to catch up with Charleen and Chris again for their Lethbridge river bottom anniversary portraits. I love so much that they keep up this tradition of updating their photos every few years for their anniversary, and keeping it close to their wedding date makes it so great for reflecting on how their relationship has grown. Even though they’ve been together a while, they are still giggly like newly weds and have no awkwardness about cuddling and being close to each other.

We spent a beautiful evening exploring behind the Helen Schuler Nature Centre for their anniversary session. The fall colours have been so amazing this year and I loved the colours Charleen and Chris chose to wear to go with it. It’s especially impressive when they put their wardrobes together at the last minute between having colds and being busy with work! ;)

Late Autumn Indian Battle Park Couples Photos [Orlena & Wayne]

Late Autumn Indian Battle Park Couples Photos

It was so great to finally get Orlena and Wayne in front of my camera! Between illnesses, family emergencies, and rain (just to name a few things!), it seemed like it might not happen but finally the stars aligned… and we managed to do it before the snow stayed for good! I was surprised how much colour we were able to find in the river bottom after all of the snow, rain, and wind that took place the week before. We had a perfect early evening for late autumn Indian Battle Park couples photos by the high level bridge and any chilliness was negated by how cuddly Wayne and Orlena were together. I loved how squishy their hugs were and how much Orlena grinned every time Wayne kissed her :)

Indian Battle Park Fall Family Photo Session [JJ & Shaun]

Indian Battle Park fall family photo session

JJ and Shaun probably expected their girls to calm down a bit as they got older, but I think Maddie and Taylor are the very definition of “firecrackers!” I always know it’s going to be a hilarious time with their laughter, crazy expressions, and super tight hugs. At the very least, photos are easier for their mom and dad year after year because even though the girls’ energy has no limits, they still listen when they are supposed to (especially with some grandparents helping out in the background!).

This year we chose to do an Indian Battle Park fall family photo session since we usually stick to the west side and the girls loved being in more of a nature setting with all the trees to climb on and deer to spot in the bushes.

Indian Battle Park Autumn Family Session [Lucas]

Indian Battle Park autumn family session

Lucas is getting so big! I last saw him for his newborn photos and now he’s running around and being adorable all over. His family visited Lethbridge to have an Indian Battle Park autumn family session and Lucas was READY. As soon as I greeted them, he flashed me an ear to ear grin and not once during photos did he lose that smile. Well, towards the end he got a little more serious but a few perfectly timed fart sounds definitely fixed that. It’s amazing to see how much joy he brings his mom and dad and I’m excited to see their family growing!

Indian Battle Park Extended Family Photos [Elliott Family]

Indian Battle Park extended family photos

The Elliott family got their whole gang together for Indian Battle Park extended family photos this autumn. Everyone in this family has such a great relationship with each other! The cousins loved playing together, grandpa was a jokester with everyone, and if I hadn’t been told who the siblings were, I would have had trouble picking them out since all the in-laws feel like they’ve been friends forever. They were such an easy family to photograph because of how much they love being around each other, and what an amazing warm morning we had in the river bottom!

Bethel Free Reformed Congregation Wedding Ceremony [Dan & Deb]

Dan & Deb, Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony

Dan and Deb held a beautiful fall wedding starting with their Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony in Monarch, bringing their families together.

Even though the wedding took place in late autumn, we were able to find a few splashes of colour at the University lake and their navy colour scheme looked fantastic against the warm fall hues.

Deb and Dan already share such an intimate bond after facing some hardships together and now uniting in marriage will bring them even closer together. I loved watching the connection they share and barely had to direct them as Dan stole a ton of kisses and Deb grinned ear to ear in his arms. They are such a great match, especially in how Dan’s goofiness plays off of Deb’s deadpan humour!

They finished off the evening by celebrating at the Coast Hotel in one of the ballrooms.

Congratulations, Dan and Deb!
