Lethbridge Private Home Wedding [Stephen & Gail]

Gail & Stephen, Lethbridge private home wedding photography

Stephen and Gail invited their closest friends over for their Lethbridge private home wedding right at the start of spring. I visited them a few weeks before the wedding while they finished the basement (where the event was held) and I can’t believe how quickly they pulled the whole thing together! Their intimate ceremony with traditional Jewish elements had so many personal touches. Friends read all of the prayers and performed the music for the event and their own children (plus one grand daugher) stood up with them as the wedding party.

After the wedding, we made use of the gorgeous afternoon weather and went to the green space conveniently behind the house for portraits. The spring blooms weren’t quite out yet but the colors looked so rich in the sunlight. Stephen and Gail were so ecstatic throughout the event and wouldn’t stop giggling when they snuggled together.

Congratulations, Stephen and Gail!

Lundbreck Falls Spring Engagement Photos [Emily & Evan]

Lundbreck Falls spring engagement photos

It was a treat to finally properly meet Emily and Evan after planning their wedding over email! They are so cute and snuggly together and perfectly complement each other with their laid back, gentle personalities.

I met Emily and Evan through Evan’s cousin, and their family frequently vacations in the Pincher Creek area so Lundbreck Falls spring engagement photos were a perfect fit for them before their wedding. They were able to make a mini-vacation out of the weekend and stay at his family’s cabin before their morning session. We had an absolutely beautiful morning despite the earlier forecasts of rain. Emily was awesome climbing the wet rocks in heels, considering I had flat shoes and almost fell in the water myself ;)

I can’t wait for their wedding this autumn!

Lethbridge Spring Engagement Photos [Kristen & Andrew]

Lethbridge spring engagement photos

Kristen and Andrew are getting married in a few months and we set out as soon as spring arrived for some casual photos. The two seem so comfortable together like best friends and I love the warmth you can feel between them. Plus they have such great smiles and were super easy to photograph!

They brought along their fur baby Hudson for their Lethbridge spring engagement photos in Indian Battle Park and we started out the session with some “family” pictures :)

I’m glad the wind made us reschedule the week before because it gave the river bottom time for the green spring buds to start coming out!

Cale & Kirsten, Lethbridge Lodge spring wedding photos

Cale and Kirsten held their intimate wedding with their immediate families and closest friends on the balcony at the Lethbridge Lodge, which provided a beautiful start to the day!

Instead of letting the rainy day get them down, Cale and Kirsten were great sports and super easy going, not minding going out in the rain one bit! We equipped them with umbrellas after our indoor photos at the Lodge and Casa and made use of the lush green colors the weather gave us for their spring wedding photos.

Congratulations, Cale and Kirsten!

Spring Apple Blossom Portraits in Lethbridge [Katt]

spring apple blossom portraits in Lethbridge with Katt Panic

As soon as the beautiful pink spring apple blossoms appeared, I quickly called up Katt Panic (the amazing local makeup artist) for some portraits. Between Katt’s trademark pink hair and her gorgeous pink cherry blossom arm tattoo, she was a perfect fit to stick up in the blooming trees! Katt of course did her own hair and makeup (even if the wind fought the look she aimed for) and was a wonderful model. It was great to finally get her in front of the camera instead of only doing behind the scenes work!

Outdoor Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Ken & Sam]

Ken & Sam, Lethbridge spring wedding

Ken and Sam were a wonderful couple to start out the craziness of wedding season with! I had already worked with Ken in another wedding party a few years ago but this was my first opportunity to photograph the adorable Sam with him. They are so cute together! They have no problem being silly and are so cuddly and comfortable around each other.

When you have a Lethbridge spring wedding you often face a big challenge – THE WIND! – but everyone was in good spirits and fought through it, chasing any personal items that blew away, and we found lots of little nooks to tuck them into to escape it. The weather only proved how easy going these two are.

Their group was so much fun to spend the day with and we were so happy to be a part of it.

Congratulations, Ken & Sam!
