Goat Mountain Getaway Autumn Wedding [Levi & Heather]

Levi and Heather, Goat Mountain Getaway Autumn Wedding

Just because you are planning a low key, intimate wedding, it doesn’t mean it can’t be elegant and gorgeously put together! Levi and Heather made great use of the rental property his parents run when they planned their Goat Mountain Getaway autumn wedding. The property was closed to vacationers for the weekend while Heather, Levi, and their closest friends and family gathered outside (and shed many happy tears) for their ceremony and reception. They could not have picked a more perfect weekend to capture the fall colours in the Crowsnest Pass. As a special touch, Levi’s father performed the ceremony (and was restricted to no more than three f-bombs!).

I loved how many amazing locations we were able to use at Goat Mountain Getaway. Although the property is fairly small, it was compressed with forests, mountain views, a teepee and even a tire swing! It was then so easy to drive a minute across the highway for the amazing views on Old Frank Road before we headed over to Lundbreck Falls.

We really appreciated being able to spend so much time with just Heather and Levi (who chose not to have a wedding party). The two of them are so madly in love and natural together, constantly melting into each other arms. Levi’s range of emotions and Heather’s ear to ear grin as she approached him in the aisle really showed how crazy they are for each other.

Congratulations, Levi and Heather!

Crowsnest Pass Night Time Wedding [Desirée & Craig]

Desiree and Craig, Crowsnest Pass night time wedding

Desirée and Craig wanted to reflect their love for the live music scene by hosting a Crowsnest Pass night time wedding at The Greenhill Hotel in Blairmore. With Craig being a musician, their concert-themed wedding was perfect! In addition to closing out the evening with an open jam stage with their friends, their decorations were accented with records and musical notes.

I noticed back at their engagement session that they have such huge emotions around each other and the wedding day was no exception. Craig was so overwhelmed during the ceremony while Des acted as his rock, wiping away his tears. They later had this hilarious exchange…

Des: Are you okay to drive?
Craig: I haven’t been drinking…
Des: I mean emotionally!

One special touch in their wedding was how much they included Desirée’s son. Not only was he their ring bearer, but he joined them in a hug after the first kiss and had a special marriage certificate to take part in the signing of.

Congratulations, Desirée and Craig!

p.s. Special thanks to Nate at Rydography for filling in for Cam as second shooter / assistant!

Lethbridge autumn maternity and family photos

Becky wanted some of her photos to have a rainbow feel, and I think with all the rich fall colors and her fun outfit choices we really pulled that off!

West Lethbridge Fall Family Photos [Ryan & Janet]

west Lethbridge fall family photos

I’ve loved watching Ryan and Janet’s family grow over the years… I did their first photos when their oldest boy was only 2 years old and I can’t believe how fast time has flown! Now that they are a family of five, we got together again for west Lethbridge fall family photos at the university lake. This turned out to be a perfect spot with how much all of the kids loved climbing in the trees, and we had to make sure they each had a turn posing in one.

Lethbridge Indoor Autumn Family Photos [Bernie & Barbara]

Lethbridge indoor autumn family photos

I can’t believe how much Annelies has grown! It feels like just yesterday we did her one year photos but she just recently celebrated her second birthday. Her grandma and grandpa were excited to get the whole family together for portraits that week in Lethbridge. We started out with their indoor autumn family photos to avoid the leftover chill that hung around from the day before, plus to get a few photos in peace from the usual Lethbridge wind :) Their wardrobe color scheme looked so great in Markin Hall at the university!

Annelies had so much fun being the center of attention and especially loved getting chased by her dad when she tried to run away. Barbara and Bernie love doting on their granddaughter and she had the biggest smiles the whole time. She’s such a well behaved two year old that it was even easier to photograph her now than when she was one! Maybe she just hasn’t learned the word “no” yet ;)

Lethbridge Children’s Sister Portraits [Kennedy & Kaia]

Lethbridge children's sister portraits

Kennedy and Kaia’s mom surprised their dad with children’s sister portraits of the girls for his Christmas present. While he was briefly out of town, the girls and their faithful dogs visited me at the University of Lethbridge lake. Kaia is still a little too young to understand the concept of secrets so we had a backup story of me being a friend practising photos to avoid any spoiling!

The last time I photographed the family was before Kennedy could walk on her own so it was incredible to see how much they have grown! Even the dogs, Jake and Digger, are much more white than they were last time, though they still have the full energy of golden retrievers. We made sure to focus on their senior dog Digger who is getting quite up there in years so they can have some beautiful photos of him.
