Rural Alberta Extended Family Photos [Luke & Lammie]

rural Alberta extended family photos

Before one of their children moved away, Luke and Lammie wanted to get the whole family together for a big summer portrait session. Their own farm made the perfect spot for their rural Alberta extended family photos. We had no shortage of locations with their beautiful garden rows, huge trees, and nearby fields… with just a few ant colonies to watch out for ;)

All of the siblings had so much fun goofing around together and after Lammie stuck her tongue out at Luke, you could tell where the kids get it from! The little kids were absolutely adorable and loved spending time at grandma and grandpa’s house for the afternoon.

Autumn Farm Family Photos [The Perry Family]

autumn farm family photos

As a gift for their mom, the Perry family went with photos! Mom used her certificate for autumn farm family photos at their acreage near Chin, Alberta and our timing worked out great in that we were able to do the photos on their wedding anniversary. After photos, everyone was ready to party :)

The wind that day was insane, but incredibly the trees at their farm blocked most of it and we barely noticed a thing! They had a beautiful property with no shortage of photo locations and lots of cute critters wandering around to keep us company. The family was so giggly and cute together!

New Dayton Farm Engagement Photos [Lanna & Mike]

New Dayton farm engagement photos

I love when couples choose locations that are very personal to them, and for Mike and Lanna’s New Dayton farm engagement photos, they choose their own farm! After driving through a herd of fuzzy cattle, their hilltop home is surrounded by old trees, gorgeous dirt roads, and well-manicured flowers, while nearby are huge ponds and vintage trucks. We definitely had no shortage of locations to use!

Both Lanna and Mike have such great senses of humor and were so fun to spend the evening with. Lanna is especially bubbly and giggled through the whole session, making them very easy to photograph :)

Whoop Up Days Engagement Photos [Annelies & Kyle]

Lethbridge Whoop Up Days engagement photos

Annelies was torn between doing Whoop Up Days engagement photos and using her fiancĂ© Kyle’s dairy farm as a backdrop… so why not just use both? ;)

We started out at his farm just outside of Lethbridge on a beautiful evening with golden sunlight. There were so many great spots there as we drove around (barns, beautiful old trees, an amazing corn field) and we were definitely of interest to the cows who stopped eating dinner to pose for their own photos.

When we were finished at the farm and the couple went through a quick wardrobe change, we headed back into Lethbridge to visit the Whoop Up Days fair. It’s usually tough to schedule photos to happen during the limited time the fair is here so I’m very glad we could make it work there with all the lights and bright colors.

I can’t wait for their winter wedding coming up!

Park Lake Wedding Photos [William & Becky]

William & Becky, Park Lake wedding photos

William and Becky had a beautiful early autumn wedding around their home turf in Southern Alberta. I had already done photos with them a couple times before so I knew how fun they were before we even started. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so crazy in love. It’s been amazing to see how much more obvious their love has become since I first met them in the winter!

After getting ready in Nobleford, we headed over to the Bethel Free Reformed Church in Monarch for their ceremony and wedding service. For their portraits I was excited to finally get to go to the Lethbridge Corn Maze, which has been on my wedding photography bucket list for a while ;) Their time spent not getting lost in the maze was followed by Park Lake wedding photos. We had already done their engagement photos there but with the new autumn colors, it looked like a brand new location and worked perfectly with the yellow bridesmaid dresses.

Congratulations, Wink and Becky!

Intimate Milk River Wedding [Chad & Samantha]

Samantha & Chad, intimate Milk River wedding

After already sharing so much of their life together, Chad and Samantha decided to make it official with an intimate Milk River wedding. Traveling from Calgary with their beautiful girls, they chose Milk River for its proximity to family and small town charm even though neither of them are originally from there. They ended up with a beautiful day where the big, blue rural Alberta skies opened up after weeks of rain and smoke.

They started out their day with a short ceremony at St. Paul’s United Church with only their closest family and friends in attendance. The church had a beautiful courtyard so we mainly stayed there, but had a chance to drive out a bit for views of fields and mountains.

Samantha and Chad are so sweet, which came across in every single interaction with them. They are both so bubbly and happy, it’s clear to see how they are still such a perfect match after all these years together.

Congratulations, Chad and Samantha!
