Henderson Lake Summer Wedding Photos [Rylan & Sarah]

Rylan and Sarah, Henderson Lake summer wedding photos

After photographing Sarah and Rylan before as bridal party members, I was so excited to finally see Sarah in her own white dress!

This was a special wedding for their families as both Sarah and Rylan are the first of their siblings to get married. Each set of little sisters was especially excited to get to dress up for this fun day.

After family photos in Picture Butte, we made the drive to Lethbridge to visit Indian Battle Park and finished with Henderson Lake summer wedding photos, complete with popping their first bottle of champagne.

It was so great to get to work with their group of friends again. This was our fifth time working with some of their friends and they are always so hilarious, outgoing, and make the day so special for everyone involved. This particular day we were treated to watching ice cream battles to combat the summer heat ;)

Sarah and Rylan are so amazing together and completely adore each other. I quickly lost count of how many times Rylan would send her into uncontrollable laughter.

Congratulations, Rylan and Sarah!

Helen Schuler Nature Reserve maternity session

I love hearing from my past brides and grooms and finding out they are growing a baby bump! Emily and Jeremy are starting their family and we were able to get together for a Helen Schuler Nature Reserve maternity session on a gorgeous spring evening.

We met up at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and made our way to the High Level Bridge, stopping at every gorgeously lit spot along the way. Emily is an absolutely beautiful mother already and it was wonderful to see the bond between her and Jeremy again. They are so excited to meet their little one!

Lethbridge High School Grad Photos [Hailey]

Lethbridge high school grad photos

This graduation season I was thrilled to work with Hailey for her Lethbridge high school grad photos. From our brief time taking photos, she gave off such an air of maturity and kindness. She is beautiful both inside and out!

The rain from the day before and threat of even more rain that day made for fantastic photos in Indian Battle Park. The colors became so deep and rich, really making Hailey’s dress pop out.

Hailey wore a stunning black and gold floor length dress with sheer lace accents, and the gold perfectly complemented her long blonde hair. She rocked that dress!

Indian Battle Park Morning Children’s Portraits [Audrey]

Indian Battle Park morning children's portraits

Each time I take photos of Audrey, I hardly recognize her from the last time! She has grown so much in the last two years and this time around has added a puppy friend to her life. This was actually my second time working with Minnie because she helped us out at Halloween with our Windy City Canine Rescue, and just a short time after that, Audrey’s family adopted her.

Audrey was such a sweetheart for her Indian Battle Park morning children’s portraits and had such a fun time playing with and feeding snacks to Minnie.

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!

Fort Macleod Spring Wedding [Henry & Kari]

Henry and Kari, Fort Macleod spring wedding

After an entire day of torrential downpour, the clouds cleared and left behind gorgeous, lush green colors for Kari and Henry’s Fort Macleod spring wedding! We met up with the couple for their first look in the Fort Macleod Wilderness Park, where Henry couldn’t stop smiling hearing Kari approaching him. Once they had a few extremely happy moments alone, we went down by the river and the landmark green bridge with their wedding party (with their family helping out controlling traffic!).

After family photos in the park and their early afternoon ceremony, we met back up with them at the Galt Museum for the rest of their photos. They are so happy together and their friends seemed absolutely excited for them, making our job so easy!

Congratulations, Kari and Henry!
