Kayla & Lucas, Snowy Waterton Elopement Photography

Kayla and Lucas chose their wedding date because of its historical importance to them. With it being a couple weeks into the official start of spring, they had hoped this would mean a spring wedding. Our weather this year had other plans! We instead spent the day taking snowy Waterton elopement photography.

Waterton has received so much snow this year that there is an entire residential street that is closed due to avalanche warnings. Within the town, you can walk up to the rooftops of many buildings thanks to the drifted snow banks. We were a little limited for locations unless we were to snowshoe, try bouldering the 10 foot banks from the snow plows, or chisel away a new tunnel. Instead, we went for the easy choices of Cameron Falls and the Prince of Wales Hotel (which were still a lot harder to navigate than normal!).

We first met Kayla and Lucas, their baby boy, and their friends at the Waterton Lakes Lodge to get a few indoor photos before faces became flushed from the cold. Once outside, Kayla and Lucas had no trouble snuggling in close to stay warm! Honestly, I think they would have snuggled just as hard had it been warm out, judging by the adoring looks they gave each other all day.

They held their elopement ceremony on the front stone steps of the Waterton Community Center. Their baby was a champ in the cold and made it through all the photos at Cameron Falls as well as half the ceremony before he had had enough! Kayla and Lucas were so lost in their vows that they didn’t know how cold their fingers and toes were getting until after their first kiss.

Congratulations, Kayla and Lucas!

Waterton Lakes Summer Family Photos [Julia & Her Abuelas]

Waterton Lakes summer family photos

Julia got to experience some very special Waterton Lakes summer family photos when both of her abuelas came from Brazil to visit Canada! Her family wanted to show them some of the best Southern Alberta had to offer during their stay and it’s hard to beat the beauty of Waterton.

We started our photos at the Prince of Wales Hotel where it was just as windy as usual! Julia thought the wind was fun and constantly made airplane arms into it. Julia had so much fun playing with her grandmothers. I’m not sure who made the other smile more! They were so joyful to spend time with their sweet little grand daughter, doing all kinds of singing and dancing together.

Terri & Craig, Waterton winter elopement

Terri and Craig got away from the city for the weekend for their Waterton winter elopement. It was a beautiful private event with just them, myself, and the marriage commissioner… very few guests were even in the park that day! It was so romantic to keep things so intimate. Their day will be so memorable not just for the intimacy, but for the weather. I think that was the craziest wind any of us have ever experienced! We managed to find enough shelter for photos and Terri’s shawl kept her mostly warm :) There was also the memorable fact of Terri having some wardrobe malfunctions with her dress, but luckily her shawl was there to save the day!

To get a break from the wind, they booked a room at the Waterton Lakes Lodge to have their wedding ceremony. They still got to have their mountain views through the window even if they couldn’t have an outdoor ceremony!

Congratulations, Terry and Craig!

Waterton Lakes Lodge Winter Wedding [Jeremiah & Hannah]

Jeremiah and Hannah, Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding

I’m not sure I have ever seen two people as excited to get married as Hannah and Jeremiah! Their relationship was love at first sight and it shows in how passionate they are around each other. It was hard to spot them without giant smiles while in each other’s company all day.

They planned their big day as a mini-destination trip with a Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding, and man did they ever get winter! Waterton was covered in several feet of snow with a fresh snowfall just in time for their wedding. For once, it wasn’t windy there! Their wedding party were great sports to go out in that much snow and we all lasted pretty long out there considering the temperature.

Both their ceremony and reception were held indoors at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort and they had beautiful lights set up behind the head table stage that made a perfect backdrop for both portions of the day.

Congratulations, Jeremiah and Hannah!

Waterton autumn family photos

Kalina got to go for a weekend trip for Waterton autumn family photos with her mom and dad and despite the on-again, off-again rain had a great time. We were worried Kalina would get upset in the rain but instead started giggling uncontrollably when it started! It’s good she was able to enjoy herself while all the adults were soggy and cold ;) She loved checking out the fallen leaves and got the best snuggles from Jen and David to keep her toasty and warm.

Waterton was gorgeous for its last official weekend of the year and unusually warm despite the rain. What a perfect day for fall colours! The small crowds gave us time to visit both Cameron Falls and Linnett Lake that day.

Waterton Autumn Engagement Photos [Erik & Alena]

Waterton autumn engagement photos

Erik and Alena split their engagement portraits into two sessions so they could capture both winter and autumn in the mountains. Their winter photos proved to be a challenge when we had a snow-free February and now that it came time for the autumn session, we almost got snow! (The snow literally came the next day.) I think we’ll have better luck getting the correct weather for their upcoming summer wedding ;)

This time around we did Waterton autumn engagement photos and I was happy they braved the rain as I dragged them around the town site. I think the speed with which we ran around distracted them from the all the wind and dampness and better let them focus on being so cute together and having fun!
