Waterton Extended Family Photos [Janet & the Kids]

Waterton extended family photos

Janet planned a wonderful trip with her children and their families over the long weekend. The whole family spent their weekend visiting Waterton and while there decided to have extended family photos done.

We started out our session at the Prince of Wales Hotel cliffs where “windy” doesn’t begin to describe the gusts that day! (I think that was our trade-off for narrowly escaping the forecast of rain.) We made our time there short so the children wouldn’t hate us too much… just enough time to get a few photos with the amazing view :)

The rest of the portrait session was spent at the gorgeous Cameron Falls, where we managed to sneak in right at dinner time when all the tourists were disappearing. The kids LOVED chasing the many chipmunks there so even when they got tired of photos, they had some good stress relief. It was amazing to see the love between Janet and her family. They are so special to her and she was so elated having everyone together.


Romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn Wedding [Shawn & Adrienne]

Shawn & Adrienne, Romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn Wedding

Adrienne and Shawn held a romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn wedding ceremony in the afternoon along the lake. This beautiful day was an official joining of their families, though they’ve taken on each other’s children as their own for quite some time now!

The couple made sure their family played an important role throughout the wedding day. Each of their mothers signed the marriage register, the wedding party was made up entirely of their children, and throughout the day they were chauffeured by Adrienne’s father in a light blue vintage Corsair car. The car, by the way, was gorgeous, and a perfect match for something old, borrowed, and blue!

It was amazing to watch how in love they are. Shawn could barely fight back tears as he watched Adrienne walk down the aisle and spoke of how meeting her was like a fairy tale. Adrienne exudes kindness and caring when she is near him.

Congratulations, Shawn and Adrienne!


Waterton Lakes Lodge Patio Wedding [Chris & Dara]

Dara and Chris, Waterton Lakes Lodge patio wedding

Chris and Dara had an intimate Waterton Lakes Lodge patio wedding with a handful of the people closest to them. Their ceremony was very emotional with both of them fighting back happy tears and really showed the deep love they share.

The weather that day let them have their outdoor ceremony, though we had to run in at one point when it started hailing during the paper signing! Family photos were then met with a very brief downpour and the rest of the day was like someone flicking a light switch between sun and clouds. Luckily Chris and Dara were so easy going that the weather didn’t phase them at all. Rain or shine, they happily went through their day without so much as an umbrella! All that mattered was each other :)

Once we finished their portraits, they headed back to the Waterton Lakes Lodge for a late sunlit lunch with their family.

Congratulations, Dara and Chris!

p.s. Thank you to Melanie at Photo Expressions for helping out!


Autumn Waterton Lakes Wedding [Kevin & Ashley]

Kevin & Ashley, autumn Waterton Lakes wedding

Kevin and Ashley chose an amazing time of year for their autumn Waterton Lakes wedding; the park was nearly empty, beautiful fall colors lined the mountains, and it was still warm enough to get married outside. Even the crazy wind couldn’t spoil their perfect day! With each gust, Ashley cheered like she was on an amusement park ride because she was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.

There was so much joy throughout the day, especially at the reception. The speeches were full of laughter and they both had the hugest grins during their first dance. They are so perfect together!

They held both their ceremony and reception Waterton Lakes Lodge with photos taken throughout the town site and at Cameron Lake.

Congratulations, Kevin and Ashley!


Summer Waterton Mountain Wedding [Ryan & Jennifer]

Ryan & Jen, summer Waterton mountain wedding

Ryan and Jen had a summer Waterton mountain wedding, which is always one of our favorite places to visit! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Waterton Community Center, with their ceremony taking place on the lawn outside overlooking the gorgeous mountains that surround the townsite.

They were hilarious with their wedding party, and Ryan was especially all about jumping into silly poses. We are very grateful to them that they handled the wind so well seeing as how the prettiest places were the ones where the wind could almost knock you down that day!

Congratulations, Ryan and Jen!


Waterton Destination Wedding [Renzo & Erin]

Renzo and Erin, Waterton Destination Wedding

This was a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for a long time! Erin and Renzo first contacted me early last year all the way from San Diego as they planned their gorgeous Waterton destination wedding. I was even more excited when I met them on their planning visit to Canada – they were so pumped about their wedding and wanted to do their photos before the ceremony so everyone would look their best, not to mention how gorgeous they both are!

The day could not have been more perfect. Waterton was less crowded than normal and the heatwave broke for a day (though the church was still pretty warm!). Their large bridal party was so much fun to work with and they had the sweetest, most helpful families. I’m so happy we got to steal Erin and Renzo away for some early evening photos, which are by far my favorite of the day. With the ceremony and dinner finished they finally had a chance to relax and were absolutely beaming at each other.

It was so great getting to spend their reception with them; it ended up being one of the most fun and energetic ones I’ve ever photographed! The dance floor was constantly full all night long and all of their guests were just so happy.

Congratulations, Erin and Renzo! (more…)
