Picture Butte Country-Inspired Wedding [Jeremy & Emily]

Jeremy & Emily, Picture Butte country-inspired wedding

We were thrilled to join Jeremy and Emily for the afternoon for their Picture Butte country-inspired wedding. They rocked a classic wardrobe in the beautiful rustic locations we visited.

We met up with Emily and Jeremy just after their family lunch. Jeremy’s family home was gorgeous and had amazing views of the coulees in Picture Butte, made even more dreamy with the smoke that hung in the air. The bridesmaid dresses and bouquets offered a stunning pop of color against all of the subdued tones from the smoke.

Their bridal party members all brought along their partners (some of whom were also in the bridal party) so everyone had fun as we drove around to the photo spots, especially when we reached the playground and the silliness came out.

Emily and Jeremy were so romantic around each other and so in love. When Jeremy said it was getting hard to keep smiling, we had him look at Emily and everyone exclaimed that it was easy now! ;)

Congratulations, Jeremy and Emily!

Derek & Tara-Lee, Coaldale farm wedding photos

Derek and Tara-Lee held a beautiful Coaldale farm wedding this summer, making use of some amazing country locations in the area. The rustic aesthetic was offset with classic touches of lace and soft pink.

After the girls got ready at Tara-Lee’s house (including makeup done by Tara-Lee’s sister, Karina), they headed to the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church for the ceremony. Between all the tears and Tara-Lee never being able to hold back her huge grin, there was so much happy energy there!

They both looked stunning and are always so blissful in each others presence. We had such a laid back day with them while everyone joked around and had fun at all the farms we visited.

Congratulations, Derek & Tara-Lee!

Park Lake Engagement Photos [Becky & William]

Park Lake engagement photos

I got together again with Becky and William for Park Lake engagement photos in the summer as a complement to their winter photos. We just missed the downpour when we arrived, which made everything super green and fresh looking at the lake. This time around Becky and William went for a more casual country look that was awesome at the outdoor location. In between all the laughter they share together, these two are masters at the sensual kiss for photos ;)

I can’t wait for their wedding in a couple months!

Beaver Mines Couples Photography [S & K]

Beaver Mines couple photos on farm overlooking mountains

S & K invited me out to their farm for some Beaver Mines couples photography, and I was so breath-taken by their views! With paths through trees with changing leaves, views of Crowsnest Mountain, and valleys of gorgeous brush leading into distant mountains, we had no shortage of locations to use. They are such a gorgeous couple and so obviously in love; I swear their eyes actually twinkled when they looked at each other. Unfortunately their boys were away that weekend and couldn’t join in photos, but I think that made them much more romantic :) Their old dog Dixie followed us along and loved the adventure!

Lethbridge Country Engagement Session [Tara-Lee & Derek]

Lethbridge country engagement session

Tara-Lee and Derek found a farm near her family home that was cute enough to match themselves for their Lethbridge country engagement session. With gorgeous weather and this dreamy looking location we had so much fun!

The couple are so sweet together and Tara-Lee constantly giggles and grins around Derek. Even Derek, who doesn’t like to smile for photos, “accidentally” smiled on camera quite a few times from being around Tara-Lee.

I can’t wait until their wedding later this year!

Lethbridge Autumn Horse Portraits [Stephanie]

Lethbridge autumn horse portraits

I got to meet Stephanie in the last bit of fall colors for some Lethbridge autumn horse portraits at the Therapeutic Riding Association where she keeps her gorgeous horses. Steph was going to be donating Dallas to the association and wanted some portraits with him first, and wanted longer session with her girl Maui too!

Dallas was super laid back and easy to quickly work with, but Maui REALLY wanted to go hang out with her friends instead and took a little more coaxing. She is definitely an opinionated horse ;) Luckily we took care of all of her riding photos before she changed her mind about wanting to model for us.

Steph looks so happy while she works with her horses and there’s no hiding how much she loves them.
