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!

Spring Coulee Family Photos [Susan & Craig]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography

For her parents’ 50th anniversary, each of Susan’s siblings were having a special family portrait session done on their “home turf.” We wanted something that screamed “Lethbridge” for Susan’s family and the coulees, Indian Battle Park, and High Level Bridge were a perfect fit to capture the feel of Lethbridge! Her, Craig, and their three energetic girls joined me just as spring started to make its arrival. After all of the rain, the grass was popping with green and the first tree buds were starting to appear.

This family is so wonderful and fun to watch! They are all so happy together and constantly joking and laughing, and I loved how adventurous the girls were, whether it meant climbing on the bridge trellises or on mom and dad!

Early Spring Coulee Portraits [Jenae & Derrick]

Early spring coulee portraits with dogs

Jenae and Derrick brought along their gorgeous blonde dogs for some early spring coulee portraits this April in Indian Battle Park here in Lethbridge. It took two tries… our first scheduled day saw rain and we decided to postpone, so of course that meant the rain totally cleared up in time for when the photos would have been! It was all for the best though because we did early evening portraits instead and the light was absolutely beautiful. All of the golden colors of the sun and grass perfectly complimented Jenae’s long blonde hair and, of course, the fur of their golden retrievers!

Derrick and Jenae are so sweet together and are a really laid back couple. You can tell it’s not just in front of the camera because their dogs Ayisha and Nala also radiate this calmness. It was so easy taking their photos! :)

Brooks Spring Wedding [Andrew & Shannon]

Shannon & Andrew, Brooks spring wedding

After shifting between a few possible dates for their big day, Shannon and Andrew decided on a beautiful Brooks spring wedding in late May and they couldn’t have picked a better day! The blossoms popped out just a few days before and the sun shone all day with just the right number of clouds so it wasn’t too hot.

We started out the day with their outdoor ceremony in Evergreen Park, surrounded by all the lush trees. Brooks had so many great spots thanks to the new blooms, which conveniently matched their wedding color of soft pink!

This was such a fun wedding – not only because we knew a few wedding party members and other guests, but because Shannon, Andrew, and their friends are so fun and silly all the time! We never stopped laughing with them all day and it really took no effort to get them to be crazy in their photos :)

At their reception everyone got involved dancing and singing, especially when a certain Journey song came on ;)

Congratulations, Shannon and Andrew!

Waterton Spring Engagement Photos [Hillary & Kevin]

Waterton spring engagement photos

Hillary and Kevin traveled down to meet me in Waterton for some spring engagement photos and we had a glorious mix of both spring and winter! The snowfall the day before still stuck in the town despite the temperatures climbing back up, so we were able to have winter wonderland type photos with gorgeous sunshine, blue skies, and enough heat to make coats unnecessary. I even got a little sunburned! With it being off season, we had most of the town to ourselves and luckily didn’t have to worry about scaling too many large snow banks.

These two are so fantastic together. Hillary and Kevin both took turns instigating who was the goofy one (and thus making the other laugh hysterically). I am sure they have no shortage of happiness when they are near each other.

Colette & Christian | Lethbridge Engagement Photos

Lethbridge engagement photos

After celebrating her sister’s graduation, Colette and her fiancee Christian met back up with me on that “blustery” day for their own engagement photo session. They’re planning a gorgeous destination wedding for later this year and wanted something special more locally before they head down there. I completely appreciated their patience in that crazy weather, and they were so awesome to work with! I think Colette’s hair was the true hero of the day because every time she readjusted it (which had to be often in that!), it looked fantastic again :) (more…)
