Heidi Waterton Baptism Photos

I first met Erin and Renzo for their Waterton wedding two years ago and I was excited when they contacted me again for their Waterton baptism photos. It’s always an honor to follow families as they grow, and even more so when they are traveling from so far away for this important moment in their new baby girl’s life!

Their little girl Heidi is absolutely adorable with her bright blue eyes and infectious smile. She was in a great mood all day, even in the wind, and loved all the attention she was getting! Erin and Renzo’s full immediate families came along on the trip, making it that much more special.

The baptism was performed at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Waterton, which is the same church and priest from their wedding. :) Heidi was on her best behavior during the baptism and didn’t even cry once!

Waterton Destination Wedding [Renzo & Erin]

Renzo and Erin, Waterton Destination Wedding

This was a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for a long time! Erin and Renzo first contacted me early last year all the way from San Diego as they planned their gorgeous Waterton destination wedding. I was even more excited when I met them on their planning visit to Canada – they were so pumped about their wedding and wanted to do their photos before the ceremony so everyone would look their best, not to mention how gorgeous they both are!

The day could not have been more perfect. Waterton was less crowded than normal and the heatwave broke for a day (though the church was still pretty warm!). Their large bridal party was so much fun to work with and they had the sweetest, most helpful families. I’m so happy we got to steal Erin and Renzo away for some early evening photos, which are by far my favorite of the day. With the ceremony and dinner finished they finally had a chance to relax and were absolutely beaming at each other.

It was so great getting to spend their reception with them; it ended up being one of the most fun and energetic ones I’ve ever photographed! The dance floor was constantly full all night long and all of their guests were just so happy.

Congratulations, Erin and Renzo! (more…)

Shooting with Warf: Jon & Dana

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

Again we are going back to August with this one! Michael Warf invited me along to second shoot Jon and Dana’s wedding in scenic Waterton, and I had such an amazing time! We were with them all day, right through to the party. Together with their bridal party they were a TON of fun – most of them knew each other from film school, and well, I like film school kinds of people :)

In keeping with that theme, Michael arranged a photo shoot in the old movie theatre in Waterton, and it couldn’t have been more perfect for those two.

Plus, these two were sooooo crazy in love. Dana’s gorgeous doe eyes were always oozing with adoration; I know “oozing” isn’t a very romantic word, but I can’t think of anything more descriptive of it!

I had trouble narrowing these down because we did so many things throughout the day, so these might take a little while to load :)

First though, a tale of my brush with nature! When I first arrived in Waterton, I had about an hour before I needed to meet Michael and his assistant Brien, so I grabbed a wrap from Subway and found a bench overlooking the lake. The deer in the area are very conditioned to all the tourists, so they graze quite close to humans throughout the town. As I sat there eating my lunch, a group of three does wandered by me, munching on the grass. Soon one turned around and started walking towards me. “It’s getting awfully close!” I thought, assuming it would stop at a certain point… but NO, before I knew what happened I was holding my wrap away from the deer’s grasp while having my cheek nuzzled! After realizing it would not be able to share any honey mustard goodness, it backed off and went back to finding stray leaves. Unfortunately, all the nearby people were too busy gawking at the sight to take a photo of it! You’ll have to take my word for it… I’m like Snow White!
