Lethbridge Pink Blossom Family Photos [Kieran, Erin & Ross]

Lethbridge pink blossom family photos

The spring blossom mini sessions I had this year were a great way for me to catch up with a bunch of my former wedding couples! I got to meet little Kieran for the first time when Erin and Ross brought him out for Lethbridge pink blossom family photos. They warned me that he doesn’t smile much, but we got so many smiles out of him for photos! The family was so nicely coordinated in outfits all featuring splashes of pink to go with the flowers.

Norland Estate Wedding Portraits in Lethbridge [Robyn & Wayne]

Robyn and Wayne, Norland Estate wedding portraits

Robyn and Wayne chose a beautiful, warm spring day to have their wedding. After they were married at the Lethbridge NRC Church, they and their familes joined us for Norland Estate wedding portraits. The property was so lush with all the fresh spring growth. We finished off their portraits at Henderson Lake to make use of the gorgeous lilac bushes.

They included so many classic and romantic elements in their wedding day. Robyn’s dress had beautiful lace sleeves and details, and her bouquet featured soft pastel colours. Wayne wore a well tailored navy suit with black trim and they brought along a family member’s burgandy vintage Volvo car as their wedding day ride. The Norland and this car went so well together!

Both Robyn and Wayne have such calm, kind personalities and a beautiful gentleness together. Whenever they thought they weren’t being watched, they were constantly giggling together :)

Congratulations, Robyn and Wayne!

Beautiful Spring Blossom Women’s Portraiture [Sadie]

beautiful spring blossom women's portraiture

I was really excited about my locations for spring blossoms this year and wanted to test them all out before my mini sessions started. (Plus I love any excuse to take photos in the flowers!) Why not spend a morning doing some beautiful spring blossom women’s portraiture? I’ve been wanting to work with local model Sadie for a while and she happened to be available right when I wanted to schedule these. Double win! Sadie was amazing to work with and brought along a fantastic wardrobe to go with the spring colours.

Lethbridge City Hall Spring Wedding [Erin & Taylor]

Erin and Taylor, Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding

Erin and Taylor chose the most beautiful day to have their Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding. This was the first day of spring where it truly felt like summer was on its way and the air was filled with the sweet smell of tree blossoms everywhere we went.

We arrived in time for Erin to have her “assembly line” of first looks in her parents’ back yard. Her father got to have the first first look, followed by Taylor once he arrived with his groomsmen. Erin’s dad won the award for most crying during the first look :)

After portraits at Aperture Park, they headed to City Hall for their ceremony. Edgar the Barnowl presenting their wedding rings offered a unique touch to the day! He was very well behaved during the entire ceremony.

The day had already been filled with tons of laughter, but once the reception rolled around and everyone had time to relax and visit with each other, the laughter was non-stop! We had trouble prying ourselves away from all the happy dancers even after our photo coverage was over :)

Congratulations, Erin and Taylor!

Calgary Chinatown Spring Wedding [Sam & Brittany]

Brittany and Sam, Calgary Chinatown Spring Wedding

I really looked forward to seeing how Brittany and Sam would combine their cultural backgrounds for their Calgary Chinatown spring wedding. The beautiful event did not disappoint! They held their ceremony at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre downtown under the gorgeous domed ceiling.

The area along the river had no shortage of beautiful spots so we didn’t have to go very far for photos as we made our way to their reception at the Regency Palace Restaurant. They could not have asked for a nicer day, especially with all the blossoms still being out.

Brittany and Sam had such a romantic and timeless look to their wedding day style. Sam rocked his James Bond style tux and Brittany was stunning in her floral detail wedding gown (the first of three dresses she wore that day!). Their personalities are so in sync with each other and I loved watching how romantic they are together.

Congratulations, Brittany and Sam!

Pink Spring Blossom Portraits in Lethbridge [Katie]

pink spring blossom portraits in Lethbridge

It was the perfect combination. I was itching to take a fresh set of pink spring blossom portraits once the flowers came out in Lethbridge. Katie was high up on my list of models I wanted to work with. A friend donated this beautiful summery white dress to my photo collection. The day the flowers suddenly bloomed had no rain and even no wind. How much more perfect could it be?

Katie was fantastic to work with. She understood how crazy I get with these flowers and didn’t question why she needed to stand in a ladder in a tree. :)

The creative pink make-up was done by the talented Erin Kinney, who also did the fishtail braid Katie wore for the first half of our shoot.
