Melinda and Henk, early spring Lethbridge wedding photography

Earlier this year I had another opportunity to second shoot for the lovely Photography by Andrea Hulst when she invited me to Henk and Melinda’s wedding. We started the morning in Picture Butte while the couple got ready at their family homes and then joined them at the Netherlands Reformed Congregation for their ceremony. We spent the rest of the afternoon doing their early spring Lethbridge wedding photography around the river bottom parks, hunting for the first signs of spring that were starting to appear.

Congratulations, Melinda and Henk!

Prairie Tractor Club Family Reunion [Mary & Jack]

Prairie Tractor Club family reunion

Mary and Jack held their Prairie Tractor Club family reunion to celebrate their wedding anniversary. All four generations travelled to Picture Butte to be there with them! The Tractor Club (aka Coyote Flats) has so many great spots to take photos; with everyone already there for dinner, it made it easy to have everything all in one spot! We had quite the variety of weather, having to run for shelter to a barn halfway through as a thunder storm rolled through. Once the rain stopped, we only had a few minutes before the sun was in our eyes and we had to find shade!

Mary and Jack were so elated to see all of their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren in one place. Mary drifted from family to family with a giant grin on her face! Their marriage is so strong after all these years and he still makes her giggle :)

Henderson Lake Summer Wedding Photos [Rylan & Sarah]

Rylan and Sarah, Henderson Lake summer wedding photos

After photographing Sarah and Rylan before as bridal party members, I was so excited to finally see Sarah in her own white dress!

This was a special wedding for their families as both Sarah and Rylan are the first of their siblings to get married. Each set of little sisters was especially excited to get to dress up for this fun day.

After family photos in Picture Butte, we made the drive to Lethbridge to visit Indian Battle Park and finished with Henderson Lake summer wedding photos, complete with popping their first bottle of champagne.

It was so great to get to work with their group of friends again. This was our fifth time working with some of their friends and they are always so hilarious, outgoing, and make the day so special for everyone involved. This particular day we were treated to watching ice cream battles to combat the summer heat ;)

Sarah and Rylan are so amazing together and completely adore each other. I quickly lost count of how many times Rylan would send her into uncontrollable laughter.

Congratulations, Rylan and Sarah!

Picture Butte Farm Wedding Photos [Jelaina & Daniel]

Jelaina & Daniel, Picture Butte farm wedding photos

I already got to work with Jelaina and Daniel briefly at her sister’s wedding last year so it was awesome to focus on them this time! Following their ceremony and lunch, we started with Picture Butte farm wedding photos at Daniel’s family’s home. They had a beautiful yard with rustic elements and it was a gorgeous day with a perfect mix of sun, clouds, and a breeze.

For their theme they chose an elegant look with soft pinks and grays. It was so classic and romantic! It felt perfect for them; the way they interact is so gentle and caring. Just moments after being silly with their friends and siblings, they can switch to these intensely romantic looks at each other :)

Congratulations, Daniel and Jelaina!

Lethbridge Spring Blossom Wedding Photos [Jamie & Sylvia]

Jamie and Sylvia, Lethbridge spring blossom wedding photos

When we booked Sylvia and Jamie’s wedding for early April we didn’t expect we’d be taking Lethbridge spring blossom wedding photos in 27C! This gorgeous day made everyone so carefree and happy. It was beautiful to celebrate this new marriage with the start of a new spring!

After their ceremony and lunch, we met at the scenic Picture Butte Golf Club for family photos. The gorgeous summer-like day meant we had to avoid a few more golf balls than originally expected! The course was so accommodating and Sylvia (plus her brother sporting crutches) got to be escorted everywhere in a golf cart.

We made friends with a horse along the way to Lethbridge, then swung by the University park where we were surprised by the most gorgeous patch of fresh blossoms. We had sent the bridal party away by that point so that Jamie and Sylvia could share some romantic privacy in the beautiful flowers.

Congratulations, Sylvia and Jamie!

Prairie Tractor Museum Wedding [Jocelyn & Frank]

Jocelyn and Frank, Picture Butte autumn outdoor wedding

I had one last rare Saturday opening this September and had another chance to second shoot for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jocelyn and Frank’s Prairie Tractor Museum wedding in Picture Butte. I arrived at the museum while Lorelei was still with the girls and got a few photos of the guys hanging out before the outdoor ceremony.

The Prairie Tractor and Engine Museum is such a beautiful wedding venue with the sprawling views of the coulees in the back and old fashioned buildings. We even got to pull the vintage fire truck out for a few photos!

Congratulations, Jocelyn and Frank!
