Lethbridge Greek Orthodox Wedding [Sophia & Alki]

Sophia and Alki, Lethbridge Greek Orthodox Wedding

Sophia and Alki held their Lethbridge Greek Orthodox wedding on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Their day was the epitome of celebration! The entire day was full of dancing, singing, and laughter. Not once did the smile fade from Sophia’s face!

Once both of them were finished getting ready, Alki arrived at Sophia’s house to see her for the first time and escort her and her bridesmaids to the church. It was a beautiful greeting with lots of flowers and singing. Their intimate ceremony at the Orthodox Church had Sophia so happy that even when she tried to be serious, she burst out into a larger grin :)

With their reception taking place at the Galt Museum, they were able to make use of the surrounding beauty of the landscape with portraits in Indian Battle Park and, later on, a quick session on the edge of the coulees at sunset.

The music was a huge highlight of their party that evening. Sophia composed their first dance waltz, sang a special song for Alki, and they were serenaded by family members with congratulatory songs. They finished off the evening with lots of fun Greek dancing!

Congratulations, Sophia and Alki!

West Lethbridge Summer Couples Photos [Jordana & Mark]

West Lethbridge coulees couples photos

Jordana and Mark will soon be seeing a lot less of each other due to work training and wanted to do a proper send off with a photoshoot together. We started their West Lethbridge summer couples photos at the University and finished off with a beautiful coulee view at golden hour. I appreciate that they had to walk through who knows what kind of hidden dangers in the grass that was almost as tall as Jordana!

I’ve known Jordana for a long time but this was my first time meeting Mark. I could instantly see why they make such a good couple! Their senses of humour are so in tune and they are best friends as much as they are so romantic together. They are definitely going to miss each other this summer.

p.s. I see Jordana regularly in our shared dance classes and was very impressed she wore something other than her trademark color ;)

Norland Summer Wedding Portraits [Willene & Joel]

Willene and Joel, Norland Summer Wedding Portraits

We’re so lucky to be able to photograph so many of these dreamy, romantic weddings this year! Willene and Joel wanted the majority of their photos to be Norland summer wedding portraits so we started off with a first look at the Bed and Breakfast. Willene loves the gazebo at The Norland so we hid Joel away in there to greet his soon to be wife. The way they immediately melted into each other’s arms was so beautiful! They could barely look away from each other all day and were so sweet to each other.

Willene and Joel were smart to start photos in the morning. They managed to skip some of the hottest hours of the day in the comfort of the air conditioned church, and returned to portraits a little later in the day once the sun was lower. The heat made getting ice cream at Henderson Lake and dipping their feet in the lake that much better!

Congratulations, Willene and Joel!

Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding [Jennifer & David]

Jennifer & David, Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding

Jennifer and David have already built a life together but decided to make it official this year! They threw a party for their family and closest friends by having a Southern Alberta Art Gallery wedding.

The years they’ve already been together have only made their love grow deeper. They had the hugest grins when they saw each other during their first look and constantly fought back tears during the ceremony at the SAAG. They are such a sweet couple and are so perfect for each other.

Their reception at the SAAG was filled with lots of dancing and laughter. Instead of a sit down dinner, they served a spread of creative (and delicious!) appetizers from LA Chefs, allowing their guests more time to mingle.

Congratulations, Jennifer and David!

Indian Battle Park Couples Portraits [Joanne & Duane]

Indian Battle Park couples portraits

The wind couldn’t keep Joanne and Duane away from their photos forever! We had to reschedule their first session because the wind decided to get really crazy. Sure enough, our backup date ended up being super windy again! (This *is* Lethbridge, after all.) Instead of rescheduling for a third date, we went deep into the trees in the river bottom for Indian Battle Park couples portraits and avoided the wind (almost) entirely.

Joanne and Duane are ridiculously cute together. They act just like high school age sweethearts, giggling at each other all the time and sneaking kisses without me even asking for them :) I had a great time with them and appreciated how well they tolerated the newly hatched mosquitoes.

Lethbridge Casual Couples Portraits [A & J]

Lethbridge casual couples portraits

J’s mom wasn’t able to get all of her boys together for a photoshoot and instead gifted her photos to him and his gorgeous girlfriend A. J and A were so adorable together for their Lethbridge casual couples portraits. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so hilarious! A lot of their humour revolved around J making some ridiculous claim followed by A smacking him in the arm ;)

We did their session at Aperture Park at the U of L on such a warm, sunny early evening.
