Lundbreck Falls Winter Photos [Stef & Freddie]

Lundbreck Falls winter photos

Originally Stef and Freddie were going to do some casual portraits a few days after their wedding, but then decided, “Why not change up the seasons?” We postponed to wait for the snow and instead did Lundbreck Falls winter photos and I’m so glad we did! Everything in the Pass was beautiful, frozen, and snowy, but it was still sunny and warm enough to brave a few photos without jackets.

Knowing they love outdoor adventures really opened up our scenery options! Lundbreck Falls was, of course, coated with ice everywhere from the water spray, and later we walked through knee-deep untouched snow in Hillcrest to access the beautiful hidden creek… all of this while the icy wind pelted us with snow and water! I love that they were up for everything and it was so great to see them again.

Blairmore Natural Newborn Session [Mason]

Blairmore natural newborn session

Mason’s mom and dad were very excited (and VERY sleep deprived) with the arrival of their first baby. I visited them in Blairmore for Mason’s natural newborn session in their home, and he was a great sport in the beginning… until he decided we were treating him wrong by denying him an endless milk binge ;) Luckily cuddles from mom and dad calmed him right down and he was so content just to be held close.

Racehorse Creek Outdoor Wedding [Freddie & Stef]

Freddie & Stef, Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding

Freddie and Stef wanted their laid-back attitudes and love of the outdoors to come through when planning their big day and fittingly decided on a Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding at one of their favorite camping and dirt biking locations.

They chose a gorgeous clearing in the Racehorse Creek area just north of the Crowsnest Pass where all of their friends and family could camp for the weekend celebrations. Of course they brought along all of their “toys” and even included their dirt bikes in the wedding :)

Stef was jaw-dropping in her corseted dress. All of the tears and laughter shared between her and Freddie throughout the day made it so obvious how in love they are.

Their day brought a sampling of all of Alberta’s weather: smoke, sun, wind, rain, and concluding with a dramatic sunset so beautiful that they quickly changed back into their wedding clothes to take advantage of it.

Congratulations, Freddie and Stef!

Coleman Engagement Photos [Stephanie & Travis]

Coleman engagement photos

Stephanie and Travis are getting married in the Crowsnest Pass next year and took advantage of Coleman engagement photos while I was down for the weekend this summer. We were joined by their very well trained dogs Luka and Lucky as a trial run to see if the dogs are well behaved enough to attend the wedding; the dogs listened so well so I think they passed the test!

It was a gorgeous morning at the Miner’s Path and finally cooled off from the rain the day before. Stephanie and Travis were great in front of the camera for their first professional photos!

Springbreak Summer Wedding [Colby & Allison]

Colby & Allison, Springbreak summer wedding

Colby and Allison held their Springbreak summer wedding at Hillcrest’s beautiful greenhouse at the base of the mountains. Allison looked like a Greek goddess in her one shoulder wedding dress. Her floor length veil was a perfect accent in the wind that is so common in the Crowsnest Pass, though we had a little less wind than expected so Cam helped out with the veil motion a few times ;)

The wedding party was so much fun to spend the afternoon with as everyone was having such a great time, plus this was my first time having one of my cousins included! Colby and Allison have already been together for a few years and the deep connection and friendship they share was obvious.

The Springbreak Flower Farm was a stunning venue for the whole day, starting with Allison and the girls getting ready at the bed and breakfast and finishing with their greenhouse ceremony and reception. Her and Colby planned their day so their guests could go straight to the party, with all of their photos taking place earlier in the day and their ceremony in the evening. Unfortunately their planned outdoor ceremony was met with rain, but inside the greenhouse was just as beautiful with all of the flowers and lights.

We were so happy that the bride and groom set aside time for evening portraits during their reception. Springbreak had such pretty spots tucked away in it!

Congratulations, Colby and Allison!

Beaver Mines Couples Photography [S & K]

Beaver Mines couple photos on farm overlooking mountains

S & K invited me out to their farm for some Beaver Mines couples photography, and I was so breath-taken by their views! With paths through trees with changing leaves, views of Crowsnest Mountain, and valleys of gorgeous brush leading into distant mountains, we had no shortage of locations to use. They are such a gorgeous couple and so obviously in love; I swear their eyes actually twinkled when they looked at each other. Unfortunately their boys were away that weekend and couldn’t join in photos, but I think that made them much more romantic :) Their old dog Dixie followed us along and loved the adventure!
