Lethbridge Band Photos [Alyssa McQuaid and Coyote Junction]

Lethbridge band photos of Coyote Junction

You might recognize Alyssa from her solo performances, or from her wedding photos I did a few years ago. She’s been busy this year with her band Coyote Junction and I got together with them in Lethbridge to update their band photos to use in promotional materials. Since they are a country rock band, we went with a look that was rustic (but not dilapidated!) and there were so many great textures to fit this look where we wandered around. The neighbourhood we chose happened to be full of people who knew members of the band, so we had to take a few breaks to say hello! It was like they had an entourage following them ;)

You can hear music from Coyote Junction by checking out their Facebook page!

Lethbridge Research Centre Wedding Portraits [Kim & Nathaniel]

Kim and Nathaniel, Lethbridge Research Centre wedding portraits

I know it’s early in the year, but I think Kim and Nathaniel may be one of my most passionate couples this wedding season. The way they looked at each other and snuck kisses even when the camera was down was so romantic!

We started out the day greeting them as they arrived at the NRC church in Lethbridge and followed Kim as she walked down the aisle to her soon to be husband. For photo locations we focused on Lethbridge Research Centre wedding portraits, which was stunningly green this time of year, followed by a quick visit to Henderson Lake and the old red firehall downtown.

Kim and Nathaniel were surrounded by so much happiness and laughter throughout the day. From Nathaniel’s friends’ dry humor to Kim’s sisters’ theatrics, we rarely stopped laughing!

Congratulations, Kim and Nathaniel!

p.s. Thank you to Melanie from Photo Expressions for being my second shooter for the day!

Lethbridge New Years Eve Wedding [Lynn & Kaitlyn]

Lynn & Kaitlyn, Lethbridge New Years Eve wedding

What better way to throw a party than with a Lethbridge New Years Eve wedding? Lynn and Kaitlyn planned their celebration to take place in the evening on New Years so they could ring in the upcoming year and their new life together with all of the people who mean the most to them.

They started their photos with a romantic reveal in the coulees just before a surprisingly warm sunset. Kaitlyn was shuttled to the location by family and hid in the van until Lynn was just out of sight. After a few moments of embracing Kaitlyn braved the chilly air to show off her beautiful soft pink dress. They were so awesome about working outside despite the weather… and at least it gave them an excuse to cuddle extra closely!

Their evening ceremony was held in Lethbridge City Hall. Their vows were a perfect mix of sentimental and humorous and could not have reflected their personalities better.

Country Kitchen Catering provided their reception party venue and dinner later that evening.

Congratulations, Lynn and Kaitlyn!

Lethbridge Spring Wedding Photos [Ben & Sheila]

Ben and Sheila, Lethbridge spring wedding photos

Sheila and Ben joined us for their Lethbridge spring wedding photos just after their ceremony on what could have been a rainy day… but as luck would have it, it stopped raining exactly just during our scheduled photo time!

I don’t think I have ever laughed this much from a wedding party before. They wore blankets as scarves, high fived a jogger in the coulees at every bend in his path, the girls ran up the coulees in heels, one groomsman managed to get a girl’s phone number downtown in between photos, and everything finished with endless airplane puns at the appropriate time (though most of those came from Cam once they got going!). Seeing as how I first knew Sheila and Ben for their hilarious piggy back rides, it shouldn’t have been a surprise that they are such a fun group!

We started our photos in the coulees, now a saturated green from all the rain, then headed downtown to some of the most beautiful old architecture. Sheila and Ben have such a romantic, deeply passionate look when they interact with each other and these locations really accented those feelings.

Our last location was a fun one: the airport hangar! Even though we ended up not needing to escape any rain, it was such a great spot to take photos.

Congratulations, Ben and Sheila!

Lethbridge Mommy and Me Session

Tiffany and Destiny had a special Lethbridge mommy and me session for their spring blossom mini-session. Their summery dresses were perfect in the pretty pink flowers and Destiny was so happy to get to play with her mom on this gorgeous warm day… even if it was right after nap time! The fallen petals were especially interesting even if my sound effects were not ;)

Downtown Lethbridge Engagement Photos [Andrea & Graham]

downtown Lethbridge engagement photos

I had a great time working with Andrea and Graham for their downtown Lethbridge engagement photos, especially because we made the bold decision to include their cat Henry in a few photos. I had already met Henry a few times when I photographed him for the Lethbridge PAW Society, and for their session he was at his most dapper in his blue bow tie! Seeing as how you can’t really tell cats what to do, he was a great little model, even if he was a little distracted by the birds ;)

After he was safe at home, I headed downtown to City Hall with Andrea and Graham and I am grateful they climbed on fountains and in trees for me! They were amazing models and I can’t wait for their wedding this autumn.
