Lethbridge Research Centre Wedding Portraits [Kim & Nathaniel]

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

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!

Fort Macleod Spring Wedding Photos [Janelle & Gerald]

Janelle and Gerald, Fort Macleod spring wedding photos

We met up with Janelle and Gerald for their Fort Macleod spring wedding photos just after their ceremony and luncheon in the town. We managed to squeeze in all the family photos just before it suddenly started raining! Janelle had totally planned ahead and picked out a fantastic hangar for indoor photos so we could stay dry.

Once the rain finally lifted, we headed back outside to get photos with the amazing vintage car they had for the wedding day. It took a little longer to drive from one point to another and Gerald had to carefully drive around bumps in the road, but it was *definitely* worth it to have such a sweet ride.

Janelle and Gerald kept their wedding intimate by not officially having a wedding party, but brought some of their closest friends along for photos. This gave us a little more time than normal to focus on the couple and how sweet they are together. I loved how classy they looked with how perfectly tailored the dress and suit were, especially next to the vintage car. Everything about the day was so romantic.

Congratulations, Janelle and Gerald!

Lethbridge Snowy Late Winter Wedding [Koos & Denise]

Koos & Denise, Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding

When Denise and Koos planned their wedding, I think they were expecting a little more spring than the winter wonderland they received! The tiffany blue and gray color theme they chose looked gorgeous for their Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding, offering a great compliment to the cool hues and bit of blue popping out of the sky.

After their ceremony at the Lethbridge Netherlands Reformed Congregation, we met with them and their family and luckily could keep everyone inside and warm for their portraits. Next we were off to the Broxburn Cafe who generously let us take a few photos inside to warm up. Everything about that location looked fantastic with the wedding colors and their rustic touches. The wedding party was so awesome about sticking it out in the cold and smiling despite the temperatures!

Denise and Koos were so lost in each other throughout the day that they hardly noticed the cold. Their embraces kept them warm and showed off how sweet and caring their relationship is.

At the end of the night we returned to their reception at the Lethbridge Lodge where they had both hilarious comedy sketches and moving presentations from the family.

Thanks to Melanie at Photo Expressions for assisting that day.

Congratulations, Koos and Denise!

Gate Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Graham & Andrea]

Andrea & Graham, Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding

I’m so happy Andrea and Graham kept me in mind so long for their photography and I was able to photograph their Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding! Despite the many years they have already been together, their love feels so fresh and new and I love how sweet and emotional they are together. It’s just too bad their kitty Henry couldn’t have been in the wedding party ;)

Their ceremony was held at The Gate in downtown Lethbridge, which was conveniently close to both their portrait and reception locations. They loved the modern, bright feel of Casa so we did most of the portraits inside the art building. All of the colors there worked perfect with the gray suits and purple accents in their wedding attire.

Afterwards they had their reception at Anton’s Ballroom in the Lethbridge Lodge, which was filled with gorgeous natural light on this warm day and, of course, so much joy from them and their guests :)

Congratulations, Graham and Andrea!

Lethbridge Lodge Spring Wedding Photos [Cale & Kirsten]

Cale & Kirsten, Lethbridge Lodge spring wedding photos

Cale and Kirsten held their intimate wedding with their immediate families and closest friends on the balcony at the Lethbridge Lodge, which provided a beautiful start to the day!

Instead of letting the rainy day get them down, Cale and Kirsten were great sports and super easy going, not minding going out in the rain one bit! We equipped them with umbrellas after our indoor photos at the Lodge and Casa and made use of the lush green colors the weather gave us for their spring wedding photos.

Congratulations, Cale and Kirsten!

Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Amelia & Abram]

Amelia & Abram, Lethbridge spring wedding

Amelia and Abram chose early May for their Lethbridge spring wedding and we had a beautiful day with sunshine and all of the new leaves starting to peak out.

One really fun part about the day is that we did the photos in reverse order, starting with their reception details. Amelia and Abram chose to do their personal portraits before anything else and it worked out hugely in our favor since the early afternoon was beautiful and sunny but it was pouring when we left the church after their ceremony! (I won’t even get into the stupid snow that happened after that.) They couldn’t have timed it better :)

I mentioned before how Abram hates having his photo taken, but you could tell he was so smitten by Amelia because he was grinning all day… he probably forget we were taking his photo ;) Amelia was full of huge laughter around him and their families, and she looked so stunning.

They chose the Lethbridge Lodge as their main location both for getting ready and their reception, so it was a natural fit to do many of the portraits there as well. After photos were finished, we headed over to the beautiful Nobleford Christian Reformed Church for their sweet and thoughtful ceremony.

Congratulations, Amelia & Abram!
