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.

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 Photos [S & A]

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!
