Crowsnest Pass Autumn Engagement Session [Brittany & Sam]

Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session

Brittany was a bridesmaid in one of our favourite past weddings so I was elated when she contacted me for her own wedding! Her and Sam will be getting married in Calgary next year, so for a change of scenery beforehand we planned out a Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session. We weren’t sure if there would be green leaves, fall colours, or a blanket of snow – you never know with the Pass – but we lucked out with a fairly calm day and AMAZING colours… we definitely picked the right weekend to do this!

Sam and Brittany love vacationing in the Pass and knew of a few good spots I’ve never checked out before (I always joke about how I never explored until I moved away from the area!). I was very glad to make use of their expertise :) Brittany and Sam have such a quiet calm about them and are so comfortable around each other. I loved watching what a great match they are.

Lundbreck Falls summer engagement photos

Amanda and Jesse decided to do Lundbreck Falls summer engagement photos to make use of the beautiful weather we had this summer. It also gave us an excuse to go on a bit of an adventure for photos as their wedding will be taking place in the city. They are so comfortable in each other’s arms and exude happiness together. They are such a perfect couple!

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!

Leitch Collieries Engagement Photos [Desirée & Craig]

Leitch Collieries engagement photos

If their Leitch Collieries engagement photos were any indication, Desirée and Craig’s wedding is going to be a blast! They are so happy together that they couldn’t help but burst out laughing every few minutes during photos. It’s so amazing to see this intensity of happiness! They have found such fantastic partners in each other. They are equal parts madly in love and not having to take themselves seriously.

I’m very glad these photos happened as I had to drive through what easily could have become a tornado to reach them. Can you believe how perfect the weather was for their photos after all that? We didn’t have a single drop of rain threaten us and the cloudy skies made the architecture there look like a dramatic old castle.

Hillcrest Mines Family Photos [Fleurie]

Hillcrest Mines family photos

When I first visited Fleurie for her newborn photos, our plan had been to focus on her in her home then go outside to get scenic photos with her mom and dad. That didn’t work out when it poured that whole weekend! We figured we’d have better luck waiting a little later into the summer, but sure enough it happened to rain again. The weather did not seem to like us! However, everything worked out perfectly by waiting till the next morning for their Hillcrest Mines family photos. We had beautiful weather, were sheltered from the wind down in the trees, and the grass seemed to grow inches taller after all that extra water.

Fleurie was not as excited about the weather as we were. She took a little offence to being awoken from her nap, but luckily we knew how to calm her down from last time. With the right amount of bouncing and a soother on hand, the problem was solved!
