City of Lethbridge Spring Photos

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

This is the second installment of photos for the City of Lethbridge, featuring my favorite season, spring! (You can see the first post, winter, back here.)

Last year we had a beautiful spring with warm weather and tons of blossoms, so taking photos was a breeze! Though we had a number of cloudy days, there were enough blue skies to offset them. (more…)

Seth and Ashley’s Wedding (working with Jan)

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Jan and I can never seem to get our schedules to match anymore, so it’s always a treat on the rare occasions we can work together! I was able to second shoot for her at Seth and Ashley’s wedding, out on his family’s farm near Vauxhall. I started out when the guys were getting ready (Jan was out with the girls), then Jan posed everyone while I crept around and took paparazzi photos :) (more…)

Christian & Riley | Lethbridge Couples Photos

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Christian contacted me a little while ago to do photos of her and her boyfriend Riley with a “country theme,” which was super fun because I often try to make Lethbridge look more forested than it actually is and ignore what we have here!

Though they’ve only been serious for a year, they’ve known each other since middle school… aw! I can’t believe they were nervous about having photos taken; I mean, look at them! They just ooze cuteness. This blog post ended up being longer than my portrait ones normally are because I couldn’t narrow them down to just a few that I liked! :) (more…)

Peter & Kimberly | A Rosebud Wedding

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

What a treat to do this wedding! I’ve casually known Kim for quite a few years now, but we were more online friends even though we lived in the same city. Then she moved away, and met Peter, and fell in love! I was a little gushy to learn that they met on an online dating site because (1) that’s a great way to fall for someone’s personality first, and (2) that’s how Cam and I met :)

Though the two are based out of Calgary/Edmonton now, they wanted to have a cute small town wedding and spent many months looking for just the right place. They settled on Rosebud, Alberta, which is pretty much the cutest small town I have ever seen. Everything is extremely well maintained and it has a thriving art scene despite being nearly in the middle of no where. As luck would have it, some classic car enthusiasts were having a get together in Rosebud that day and offered their chauffeur services at no charge. So generous!

Since Peter is an actor and both are huge music enthusiasts, their intimate wedding was full of artists, actors, and musicians (my kind of people!) and everyone was so warm and generous that it didn’t take long for me to feel like family. I had so much fun with everyone, for as you will see, they don’t take everything quite so seriously… :) (more…)

Marie and the Windmills

Friday, October 8th, 2010

As I mentioned in the previous entry, when doing the photos for the last issue of ArtsBridge I was asked to shoot within the theme of the interaction between the environment, arts, and science, and immediately the big windmills throughout Southern Alberta came to mind. I dragged Marie out towards Cardston just before sunset and made her repeatedly jump for me :)

Though the publication was in black and white, the colors that evening were so rich and saturated, so I’m excited to show the color versions of the images.

Thank you Marie for being such an awesome model! (more…)

Mitch and Kara, a Lethbridge Wedding

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Kara and Mitch were married a few weeks ago at a beautiful sunny ceremony in Pavan Park with their closest family and friends in attendance. I had a fantastic time with them because they put the utmost trust in me and did anything I told them to for the sake of photos! (I made them “work for it,” Kara told me with satisifaction in her voice.) They were kind enough to let me drag them out to Monarch for the majority of their formal photos, and I’m so glad we went there because that is one of the most diverse towns I have ever seen for locations!

I was also pleasantly surprised to find someone I’ve known for a few years in their bridal party – Lethbridge is small like that, so I’m actually surprised it doesn’t happen more often!

Kara and Mitch are a sweet couple, and I must say I love Kara’s “kissy face” she often makes.

Thanks to Andrew Suderman for helping out this time around! (more…)
