Lethbridge Summer Elopement [Tammy & Todd]

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Tammy & Todd, Lethbridge summer elopement

Tammy and Todd had a Lethbridge summer elopement of sorts – a small, intimate wedding that only a handful of their closest family members knew about, which gave them a chance to surprise the rest of the family a few weeks later! They chose a beautiful day at the start of summer to have their wedding with not a gust of wind or a mosquito in sight.

After having their ceremony in their backyard, I met with them and their family in Pavan Park for their family photos and then wedding photos of just the couple. Tammy looked amazing in her fitted lace dress and I loved the touches of purple they worked in to their wardrobe.

Congratulations, Tammy and Todd!

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!

Goddess of the Woods, Lethbridge personal creative photo project

I was so happy to finally do this conceptual photoshoot after having the idea building up for it since last autumn! No one else could have been my goddess of the woods – or maybe she’s a fairy :) – but Thea and she totally rocked the role.

As usual, Katt perfectly captured the concept I had for makeup and did an amazing job!

Lethbridge Autumn Pet Family Photos [Irene & Jed]

Lethbridge autumn pet family photos

Some dogs love eating couches and Cricket is no exception! When Irene and Jed added her to their family to be Finnegan’s sister, their beloved couch did not survive the new addition. They wanted to commemorate their couch in pictures before sending it away so we had a lovely autumn pet family photo session with them, the dogs, and the old furniture in their backyard. The dogs thought we were having a party and loved zooming around in between poses, but still listened perfectly when it was time to look at me.

After our time in the yard, we took them on an adventure to Lethbridge’s Pavan Park where they got to smell all kinds of other dogs :)

Lethbridge Fantasy Night Portraits [Elizabeth]

Lethbridge fantasy night portraits

I had so much fun doing Elizabeth’s costume photos last year so I was really excited when she contacted me again this year to do another fantasy concept shoot. This time the theme was around light based magic, inspired by a book series she is reading, and night portraits involving light painting were the perfect way to pull it off.

We found a flat spot near Lethbridge’s Pavan Park to get lots of wide open sky just after sunset and started with her blue and white fan veils she has been learning. The nice thing about fan veils is you don’t need to wait for the wind to make them look really cool :) We did a few ghosting photos with those, then it was finally dark enough to pull out the light painting tools!

Elizabeth was awesome at holding still while I ran around her and we all dealt with a swarm of mosquitoes :)

Late Autumn Lethbridge Wedding [Trevor & Andrea]

Trevor & Andrea, late autumn Lethbridge wedding

It’s been quite a few years since I met them for his sister’s wedding, but I finally got to see Trevor’s family again when it was his turn to tie the knot! He and Andrea got married near Park Lake and had the whole family meet at the farm for photos. It was quite windy that day so we’re lucky no one blew away ;)

The farm has such beautiful, rustic spots for photos and I was thrilled to be able to shoot there again. The old barn is far enough away from everyone that Trevor and Andrea were able to have some romantic alone time (well, as romantic as it can be with two photographers spying on them!).

When we were finished at the farm, they headed to Lethbridge in the awesome old truck they borrowed. It very conveniently matched their wedding colors! Trevor and Andrea picked beautiful colors for late autumn Lethbridge wedding photos, choosing gray with bright orange accents.

We had fun with the bridal party at the Galt Museum, then they had a moment of not-so-fun when the truck wouldn’t start… but luckily it came through for them and we made it down to Pavan Park to take advantage of the autumn colors :)

Congratulations, Trevor & Andrea!
