Birds of Prey Centre Alternative Wedding [Donovan & Brittany]

Donovan & Brittany, Birds of Prey Centre alternative Wedding

In what might be one of our most unique weddings of the year, Brittany and Donovan held an Alberta Birds of Prey Centre alternative wedding amongst all of the adorable ducks, owls, and eagles in Coaldale! Brittany loves animals and when they were looking for a unique, rarely used ceremony location, the Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation was a perfect fit.

They had an emotional and happy wedding there with their closest friends and family and then got to play with some ducks and owls before we headed back into Lethbridge. The post office building downtown was a perfect location for their subdued, cool wedding hues (and Brittany’s rad hair) and she rocked her tattoos with her wedding dress while Donovan sported his awesome trademark mustache.

They were a hilarious group to spend the day with and were such wonderful hams in front of the camera. :)

Congratulations, Donovan and Brittany!

Galt Museum Summer Wedding Photos [Andrew & Kristen]

Andrew & Kristen, Galt Museum summer wedding photos

Andrew and Kristen planned a very classic, stylish event for their Galt Museum summer wedding photos. Most ceremonies at the Galt take place inside the museum but the couple wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous view of the coulees on the bluff outside. They had the absolute best luck that day, finishing their ceremony in the sun and all photos just before the big storm moved in.

They planned their outdoor ceremony and Galt reception close together so their guests could go straight to cocktail hour. To make the best use of our time, we met up with each part of the wedding party just before the ceremony. No one needed warming up for photos; they all had us laughing immediately!

We loved working with Kristen and Andrew for their photos. They are SUCH a gorgeous couple and looked stunning in Kristen’s high back lace dress and Andrew’s navy suit.

Congratulations, Andrew and Kristen!

Spring Apple Blossom Portraits in Lethbridge [Katt]

spring apple blossom portraits in Lethbridge with Katt Panic

As soon as the beautiful pink spring apple blossoms appeared, I quickly called up Katt Panic (the amazing local makeup artist) for some portraits. Between Katt’s trademark pink hair and her gorgeous pink cherry blossom arm tattoo, she was a perfect fit to stick up in the blooming trees! Katt of course did her own hair and makeup (even if the wind fought the look she aimed for) and was a wonderful model. It was great to finally get her in front of the camera instead of only doing behind the scenes work!

Outdoor Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Ken & Sam]

Ken & Sam, Lethbridge spring wedding

Ken and Sam were a wonderful couple to start out the craziness of wedding season with! I had already worked with Ken in another wedding party a few years ago but this was my first opportunity to photograph the adorable Sam with him. They are so cute together! They have no problem being silly and are so cuddly and comfortable around each other.

When you have a Lethbridge spring wedding you often face a big challenge – THE WIND! – but everyone was in good spirits and fought through it, chasing any personal items that blew away, and we found lots of little nooks to tuck them into to escape it. The weather only proved how easy going these two are.

Their group was so much fun to spend the day with and we were so happy to be a part of it.

Congratulations, Ken & Sam!

Lethbridge Grad Photos [Yael]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography

Yael’s graduation came at a perfect time – the coulees were so lush and green for her Lethbridge grad photos! There wasn’t even a hint of rain that day :) Her and her family joined me down in Indian Battle Park for some photos to celebrate this momentous occasion. Yael looked absolutely stunning.

Her dress was a beautiful mix of flowing blush pink and sparkly white with super fun pink Converse shoes added for some extra personality. It was a perfect match for the season since all of the pink blossoms had just popped out on the trees the day before!

Congratulations on your accomplishment, Yael!

Superhero [Lens Factor Project: Fantasy theme]

Lens Factor Project, fantasy theme, Lethbridge superhero cosplay photos

As soon as I found out fantasy was a theme, my mind was full of superhero images rather than the traditional medieval concepts that are associated with the term. Originally I thought of putting Kayla in another theme but I’m glad I switched her around because she was so perfect as the heroine in this series. The timing was so tricky because we needed a bright blue twilight amidst a week of rain, but everything came together perfectly, including violent Lethbridge wind to assist with our cape. Kayla was amazing at holding still and resolute in the gusts that nearly knocked us all over on the overpass!

I got to recycle a few pieces of old dance costumes for this shoot; it pays to be a clothing hoarder, right? ;)

Model: Kayla Avison
Theme: Fantasy

This photo is part of the Lens Factor Photo Project in which 5 photographers were given teams of 5 models and given 5 themes to work with. The results were kept secret until all final images were revealed at once. I took a number of photos for each theme and my out-takes appear below!
