Claresholm Ranch Engagement Photography [Monica & Dave]

Claresholm ranch engagement photography

I went out for a bit of a drive to join Monica and Dave for their Claresholm ranch engagement photography a few miles outside of the town. We took their vehicle up to the rocky hill overlooking the ranch, through the herd of inquisitive cows enjoying their dinner. From up there we had sweeping views of the foothills surrounding their property, starting to pick up the soft green tones as spring began to spread throughout the fields.

Monica and Dave were so easy to photograph together. They are always making each other giggle and it’s probably lucky for me I was just out of earshot during when I’m pretty sure he was telling her dirty jokes to get more laughs! Even when my camera was placed down to plan the next photo, they’d pull each other in for another embrace and I’d quickly start snapping again.

I can’t wait to explore the area further on their wedding day this summer when they’re dressed all fancy!

A Collection of Farm Animals

Southern Alberta farm animals chicken photos

Last year I second shot a rural outdoor wedding with a friend and loved sneaking away between events to photograph all the critters who lived at the farm! Their large collection of chickens roamed around, keeping an eye on our doings, while the sweet horses watched from afar.

Barnwell Family Pet Photos [Tayler]

Barnwell family pet photos

Tayler had a new addition to add to her annual Barnwell family pet photos this year… their adorable Husky Winter! Winter joined their family a year ago and is a perfect companion to the other seasonal dogs, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Winter fits right in and loves playing with her fur siblings! I love coming out to Tayler’s house every year for her portrait session and hanging out with her, her mom, and all of their adorable critters. This year we had to work a little faster because it kept raining. This came as a surprise as it was one of the very few days it rained all summer! Luckily most of the animals didn’t mind being outside when it was damp. The cats were the exception, but it was a little easier to round each one up for a special portrait with Tayler when they were all hiding inside in the dryness ;)

Coaldale family farm photos

Due to some travel delays amongst their children, George and Sharon hadn’t been able to get a proper family photo at their daughter’s wedding last autumn. They made up for it this summer with Coaldale family farm photos at their beautiful home. Most of the kids don’t like having their photo taken, but I think they did a pretty good job getting through it to make their mom happy :)

Pincher Creek Cabin Family Photos [Barry & Linda]

Pincher Creek cabin family photos

It’s been a few years since both of their children’s weddings so it was great to get together with Barry and Linda’s family again! They were spending the weekend at their cabin in Southern Alberta and figured it was time for some updated family photos while everyone was together. Barry built the cabin near Pincher Creek himself and it’s been a treasured family getaway spot over the years. As the family has grown with marriage, they’ve only added more laughter and love to their weekends away. Although the mountain views from the property were obstructed with smoke, the view from on top of their hill was still incredible!

Diamond City Cattle Ranch Wedding Photos [Koralee & Colin]

Koralee and Colin, Diamond City Cattle Ranch Wedding Photos

Koralee and Colin looked gorgeous for their summer wedding! We met up with them and their family at Henderson Lake, just after their ceremony and lunch, and were greeted with a beautiful sunny day.

The highlight of their day were their Diamond City cattle ranch wedding photos, kindly coordinated by one of the groomsmen and his connections. The location had everything Koralee was looking for: sprawling fields, groves of trees, coulee cliffs, and some local residents (of the cow variety plus one protective horse) to add some character to the background. We went off-roading with their driver from California Dream Limo to get there and had so many great spots to work with!

Their wedding party were hilarious and kept them giggling all day. The guys were great sports coming up with poses for holding the bouquets and the girls pulled all their strength together to lift up Colin. Every once in a while we’d send them off into the shade so Kora and Colin could have a few private moments together without teasing ;)

Congratulations, Koralee and Colin!
