Lethbridge Farm Extended Family Photos [Linda & Ed]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portraits

Linda and Ed were going to have the whole gang together in Lethbridge for one weekend and decided that was the perfect time to get some extended family photos done! Linda’s parents’ farm on the edge of the city provided us with a fun, unique, and meaningful location with so many neat spots to use (my favorite being, of course, the awesome old truck!). We had to be a little careful getting around, though… this was the day of the big snow melt and most of the property was covered in several inches of water that couldn’t absorb through the frozen ground! Luckily we found some helpful pieces of plywood that worked as platforms in the trouble spots.

The family was so fun and joking together the whole time, plus Ed used to develop photos so we had a few things to chat about! My favorite connection was definitely between Austin and his sisters… the little girls clearly look up to their big brother and were so happy together!

Zombie Girl Portraits Lethbridge [Hope]

zombie girl portraits Lethbridge

Hope was adorable for her portrait session… but I think something may have been wrong with her? Maybe she wasn’t feeling well that day? ;)

I worked with Hope as part of a Halloween themed photographer/model collaboration and wanted to take some gory but lovely zombie girl portraits of her. Of course I had to go as traditional and cutesy as possible for her portrait poses to juxtapose all the blood and gore she had going on! Hope did a fantastic job on her own makeup and managed to keep her contacts in despite the crazy wind making them shift :)

Coaldale Autumn Wedding [Willem & Jamie]

Jamie & Willem, Coaldale autumn wedding

Willem and Jamie had a gorgeous Coaldale autumn wedding with touches of baby blue and pink and burlap accents. It gave everything a perfect rustic feel for all of our farm locations we went to for photos!

We started out the day with their ceremony at the Canadian Reformed Church in Coaldale and after portraits headed to the Gem of the West Museum for their reception.

It was so much fun working with Willem’s family again and now getting to have Jamie’s family in the mix! They were able to include all of their sisters by having the younger girls as junior bridesmaids and a flower girl, and the main bridesmaids were sisters as well :) The sisters are all so close so it felt just like having their best friends in the party. I loved seeing Jamie and Willem’s glowing smiles at each other all day, not to mention how much fun they clearly have together :)

Congratulations, Willem & Jamie!

Lethbridge autumn farm wedding

I had a great afternoon with this cute, young couple for their Lethbridge autumn farm wedding. We met up just after their post-ceremony luncheon for family photos and followed with portraits of them and their wedding party. They chose such a beautiful farm to take their photos on! We had no shortage of locations with old wagons, a gorgeous pond, wooden swing, and huge flower beds. We also made a few stops throughout Lethbridge to get our iconic fields and big blue skies :)

Congratulations, S & A!

Lethbridge Rural Summer Wedding [Alyson & Jordan]

Jordan & Alyson, Lethbridge rural wedding

Jordan and Alyson had such a beautiful Lethbridge rural themed summer wedding with touches of wheat and wild flowers to complement all of the other vintage and lace details they included.

They had their afternoon wedding ceremony at Marantha Church in West Lethbridge. The two of them were so amazing to watch. They could not stop smiling at each other and laughing with joy through the whole ceremony (plus a bit of happy crying, of course).

For photos, they chose such a personal place: their own farm. The farm had such beautiful old buildings and lush green wild grass, making it such a gorgeous location for photos. Just down the road was Jordan’s family’s farm, which allowed us access into the bright yellow canola fields. I just love when canola is in season and so saturated like that!

Their reception was held back in Lethbridge at the College’s DA Electric Barn where they served donuts instead of cake :)

Congratulations, Jordan & Alyson!

Lethbridge couple photos in autumn

I first met Kayli and Taylor back when I did Kayli’s grad photos and it’s so great to see these high school sweethearts still in love. They are so adorable together! We finished off the Thanksgiving weekend with a country inspired couples session for the two of them to celebrate their recent anniversary, and had a beautiful sunny afternoon. (more…)
