Lethbridge Halloween Themed Wedding [Paul & Stephanie]

Stephanie & Paul, Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding photos

Halloween is my favourite holiday so I jumped at the opportunity to second shoot for Melanie at Photo Expressions when she told me a Lethbridge Halloween themed wedding was in the works! Stephanie and Paul definitely agree with me about what an awesome holiday it is :) They loaded up on decorations last year when the Halloween stores had clearance in preparation for their big day the next year.

They started out the day in traditional wedding attire but chose Halloween colours as their accents. We had a gorgeous day to do photos out at Nicholas Sheran Lake, and even managed to find a few leaves left at the end of the month! Stephanie and Paul make each other laugh so hard that they almost collapse. There were very few moments when either of them didn’t have a huge grin on their faces.

Their reception was a costume party held at the Lethbridge Hungarian Club, and nearly every guest got in the spirit and dressed up! There were so many amazing costumes and everyone was so happy and energetic (I’m sure the Halloween candy bar helped with that).

Coaldale Warm Winter Wedding [Chaisson & Krystal]

Chaisson & Krystal, Coaldale warm winter wedding

Occasionally I love to take a back seat in the process and second shoot for other photographers. Chaisson and Krystal’s Coaldale warm winter wedding at the Canadian Reformed Church was my first time working with Andrea Hulst… at least in this way! She was a bridesmaid in one of my weddings last summer so it was really neat to work with her in a totally different way!

Despite the wedding taking place in February, the weather was like spring, allowing us to go outside for gorgeous golden photos.

Prairie Tractor Museum Wedding [Jocelyn & Frank]

Jocelyn and Frank, Picture Butte autumn outdoor wedding

I had one last rare Saturday opening this September and had another chance to second shoot for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jocelyn and Frank’s Prairie Tractor Museum wedding in Picture Butte. I arrived at the museum while Lorelei was still with the girls and got a few photos of the guys hanging out before the outdoor ceremony.

The Prairie Tractor and Engine Museum is such a beautiful wedding venue with the sprawling views of the coulees in the back and old fashioned buildings. We even got to pull the vintage fire truck out for a few photos!

Congratulations, Jocelyn and Frank!

Weddings with Lorelei Hoffarth in Waterton [Riley & Kaitlin]

Kaitlin & Riley, Waterton wedding photography

I love going to Waterton for weddings, so it was impossible to say no when Lorelei Hoffarth asked me to help her second shoot Kaitlin and Riley’s wedding there. (Plus Lorelei is awesome to work with!)

I started out the day several hours earlier than I’m used to getting up (and survived!) to capture the guys getting ready in Lethbridge before the limo arrived, then hopped on board with them to the gorgeous national park. They had their Waterton morning ceremony on the cliffs behind the Prince of Wales Hotel and it was such a beautiful day for the wedding. Kaitlin and Riley are a gorgeous couple and judging by Riley’s emotional response to seeing her walk down the aisle, their love is so strong.

Lethbridge winter wedding

This post is a little late, but Lorelei had first dibs on showing the photos :)

Last December I had the pleasure of second shooting for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jennifer and David’s snowy Lethbridge winter wedding. It was extremely cold that day so we mostly stuck indoors with Casa, their church, and their reception venue, but at the end there were brave enough to head out with their fur shawls for a few snow pictures too!

I started out the day with the boys at Casa, and soon Lorelei and the girls joined us.

Donny and Shavon’s Wedding (working with Brien)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

I’ve known Brien from Bjg Photography for quite a long time, but last year was the first time we second shot for each other! He asked me to come help out with Donny and Shavon’s wedding in July, which was held on the beautiful grounds at the Research Centre. I spent time with the girls while they got ready in the Coast Hotel earlier that day, then met up with Brien outdoors for the intimate ceremony. (more…)
