Waterton autumn family photos

Kalina got to go for a weekend trip for Waterton autumn family photos with her mom and dad and despite the on-again, off-again rain had a great time. We were worried Kalina would get upset in the rain but instead started giggling uncontrollably when it started! It’s good she was able to enjoy herself while all the adults were soggy and cold ;) She loved checking out the fallen leaves and got the best snuggles from Jen and David to keep her toasty and warm.

Waterton was gorgeous for its last official weekend of the year and unusually warm despite the rain. What a perfect day for fall colours! The small crowds gave us time to visit both Cameron Falls and Linnett Lake that day.

Waterton Anniversary Portrait Session [Louis & Laurie]

Waterton anniversary portrait session

Louis is a true romantic. For his 50th wedding anniversary with Laurie he surprised her with a trip to Waterton, a stay at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel, a fun weekend filled with exploring the park, and a Waterton anniversary portrait session.

I met with them at the hotel where we decided against the overlook photos in the original plan… because my goodness, was it windy! Instead we found shelter lower down at Linnett Lake and within the townsite by the docks, and luckily didn’t run into any of the bears that have been frequenting the town. (Though we were told we missed a bear visit by 15 minutes!)

Don’t let the fact that they prefer to be serious in photos fool you… throughout the session, Louis and Laurie constantly made each other laugh and are obviously still so in love after all these years. I wish them another happy 50 years together :)

Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding [Robert & Carla]

Robert and Carla, Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding

Robert and Carla made sure family played a prominent part in their Waterton Bayshore Inn autumn wedding. Their wedding party was mostly made up of siblings, their small guest count gave them more time to visit with family members, and most importantly, their adorable girls were a highlight of the day and got to enjoy their own special dance with Rob in the evening. They made it obvious what their priorities are in their life together :)

They chose such a gorgeous day at the end of the season in Waterton to hold their wedding. Their orange and red colour scheme perfectly complemented the fall colours and the dwindling tourists meant we got to visit a mostly empty Red Rock Canyon!

Carla and Robert were a joy to work with. They are madly in love and busted out hilarious jokes every few minutes. Their wedding party members were so warm and generous too, so it really must run in the family.

Congratulations, Robert and Carla!

Waterton Family Photos [Chelsea & Brendon]

Waterton family photos

When Chelsea contacted me to do Waterton family photos, I was so excited! I’m normally only there for weddings when we have a tight schedule, but for family portraits we could take our time and explore as much as needed. Her and Brendon, along with their sweet children Alexis and Liam (some of the most well behaved kids I’ve ever met!), met with me one summer afternoon and enjoyed the beautiful day with me.

It was such a gorgeous day in Waterton… sunny but not too hot, and all the colors were so vibrant, especially in the wildflowers that were in bloom. We went on a few mini hikes exploring the park and the kids got to have a fun wagon ride to get there.

Casual Waterton Wedding [Michael & Chantelle]

Michael and Chantelle, Casual Waterton Wedding

When Michael and Chantelle told me that their dog Wyatt was going to be a big part of their wedding day I knew we would have a lot of fun! We started out their casual Waterton wedding day with an intimate ceremony at Linnett Lake on the docks with a background of changing autumn leaves and spent the afternoon taking photos around Waterton. I was so happy that they scheduled so much of their day for photos! We didn’t have to feel rushed at all and got to visit so many different locations.

We finished up at Red Rock Canyon just as a few rain/snow clouds rolled in, but luckily it’s still only up in the mountains that the season is really changing! In the evening they held their reception at the old school house in Waterton with lots of dancing and delicious food.

They were so much fun to work with and since they are huge outdoor enthusiasts (both in their careers and hobbies), they were totally fine with hiking to the best spots. Wyatt came along all day and was such a good model, even if he’s a little excitable most of the time :)

Congratulations, Michael and Chantelle! (more…)

Scenic Waterton Wedding [Sean & Alison]

Alison and Sean, Scenic Waterton Wedding

So happy to go to Waterton again! Even though Sean and Alison planned a Lethbridge ceremony for their extended family and friends at their home base of Lethbridge, they made the great decision to have an intimate scenic Waterton Wedding Ceremony (our most beautiful local destination!). Their ceremony was held behind the Prince of Wales overlooking the lakes and there wasn’t even any wind to blow us away!

We had a ton of fun going around town with them for photos afterwards and they even got to try a canoe, where Sean was given a very quick lesson by the people running the rental :) This was actually my first time using Linnett Lake as a photo location, but I think from now on it needs to be a staple! (And phew, no bears!) Sean did a great job steering the thing and luckily did not capsize the thing!

It was so wonderful to see them get married after meeting them almost a year ago, and we loved how they randomly let their goofy personalities show through their calm, laid-back demeanor.

Congratulations, Sean & Alison! (more…)
