Lethbridge Vintage Pinup Wedding [Tony & Kathleen]

Tony & Kathleen, Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding

As soon as Kathleen told me at our first meeting what her dress was going to look like, I was in love with their wedding! Her and Tony planned a Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding with tons of awesome alternative elements, like most of the guys sporting their mohawks. The girls wore vintage style tea length dresses from Drunken Sailor and colorful pumps to go with the red, black, and white color scheme. It’s not often you see red wedding dresses :)

It was such a beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony at Gyro Park with lots of sun and not a hint of wind. They made sure to include their three dogs in the ceremony and family photos, who were on their mostly best behavior for the day (there was just one blanket that was peed on!).

Tony and Katie’s friends were as silly as they are and so much fun to spend the day with. We even had a few extra friends follow us with their amazing classic cars (also matching the wedding color scheme), which added so much to the photos.

Congratulations, Tony & Kathleen!

Lethbridge Spring Engagement Photos [Kristen & Andrew]

Lethbridge spring engagement photos

Kristen and Andrew are getting married in a few months and we set out as soon as spring arrived for some casual photos. The two seem so comfortable together like best friends and I love the warmth you can feel between them. Plus they have such great smiles and were super easy to photograph!

They brought along their fur baby Hudson for their Lethbridge spring engagement photos in Indian Battle Park and we started out the session with some “family” pictures :)

I’m glad the wind made us reschedule the week before because it gave the river bottom time for the green spring buds to start coming out!

Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

Indian Battle Fall Family Photos [Mary & John]

Indian Battle fall family photos

Mary and John came to Lethbridge over Thanksgiving weekend to visit their kids, Kendra and Cameron, and took some time out of their schedule to get some updated Indian Battle fall family photos. The leaves were such an amazing color that weekend with rare splashes of orange everywhere. They brought along their senior dog O.D. who was so full of personality despite his hearing and vision problems. He must have known how to smile at the camera even when he couldn’t hear me!

This family was hilarious and joked their way through the whole session. It’s good they are such positive people because we had a bit of trouble with the rain… every so often, despite it being a beautiful day, we’d be hit with pouring rain and even a little hail! We had to run for cover a couple times during our session (including a 10 minute car break when it got really bad!) but luckily it passed every time and we could keep going.

Thanks for braving the rain with me, guys! ;)

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 :)

Family Christmas Pet Photos [Taylore & Kelly]

family Christmas pet photos

Taylore, Kelly, Maid Marian the cat, and Bjork the Icelandic Sheepdog (perfect name, right?) were due for their family Christmas pet photos and rather than trying to wrangle the dog and cat themselves, I got to help them out this year! They are a cute little family and the animals were awesome sports in wearing their Christmas sweaters, even if it took a bit of wrestling to make it happen.

Bjork and Marian have such different personalities; Bjork is outgoing and exceptionally friendly to everyone, and Maid Marian is cautious and worried, but the two of them are still the best of friends. I was told Bjork is more of a favorite than the humans are!
