Waterton Autumn Family Photos [Kalina, Jen & David]

Waterton autumn family photos

Kalina got to go for a weekend trip for Waterton autumn family photos with her mom and dad and despite the on-again, off-again rain had a great time. We were worried Kalina would get upset in the rain but instead started giggling uncontrollably when it started! It’s good she was able to enjoy herself while all the adults were soggy and cold ;) She loved checking out the fallen leaves and got the best snuggles from Jen and David to keep her toasty and warm.

Waterton was gorgeous for its last official weekend of the year and unusually warm despite the rain. What a perfect day for fall colours! The small crowds gave us time to visit both Cameron Falls and Linnett Lake that day.

Carla and Robert fall Waterton wedding album

It’s been hard parting with all these pretty albums this year! This earthy coloured book is Robert and Carla’s fall Waterton wedding album. Their autumn themed wedding at the Bayshore Inn looked gorgeous against the brown colours chosen for this album, and we went with nice big photos spread over the pages. It’s Waterton – you have to show off how amazing the landscapes there are!

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.

Waterton Anniversary Portrait Session [Louis & Laurie]

Waterton anniversary portrait session

Louis is a true romantic. For his 50th wedding anniversary with Laurie he surprised her with a trip to Waterton, a stay at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel, a fun weekend filled with exploring the park, and a Waterton anniversary portrait session.

I met with them at the hotel where we decided against the overlook photos in the original plan… because my goodness, was it windy! Instead we found shelter lower down at Linnett Lake and within the townsite by the docks, and luckily didn’t run into any of the bears that have been frequenting the town. (Though we were told we missed a bear visit by 15 minutes!)

Don’t let the fact that they prefer to be serious in photos fool you… throughout the session, Louis and Laurie constantly made each other laugh and are obviously still so in love after all these years. I wish them another happy 50 years together :)

Waterton Autumn Engagement Photos [Erik & Alena]

Waterton autumn engagement photos

Erik and Alena split their engagement portraits into two sessions so they could capture both winter and autumn in the mountains. Their winter photos proved to be a challenge when we had a snow-free February and now that it came time for the autumn session, we almost got snow! (The snow literally came the next day.) I think we’ll have better luck getting the correct weather for their upcoming summer wedding ;)

This time around we did Waterton autumn engagement photos and I was happy they braved the rain as I dragged them around the town site. I think the speed with which we ran around distracted them from the all the wind and dampness and better let them focus on being so cute together and having fun!

Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding [Robert & Carla]

Robert and Carla, Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding

Robert and Carla made sure family played a prominent part in their Waterton Bayshore Inn autumn wedding. Their wedding party was mostly made up of siblings, their small guest count gave them more time to visit with family members, and most importantly, their adorable girls were a highlight of the day and got to enjoy their own special dance with Rob in the evening. They made it obvious what their priorities are in their life together :)

They chose such a gorgeous day at the end of the season in Waterton to hold their wedding. Their orange and red colour scheme perfectly complemented the fall colours and the dwindling tourists meant we got to visit a mostly empty Red Rock Canyon!

Carla and Robert were a joy to work with. They are madly in love and busted out hilarious jokes every few minutes. Their wedding party members were so warm and generous too, so it really must run in the family.

Congratulations, Robert and Carla!

Prince of Wales Wedding Elopement [Ryan & Becky]

Ryan and Becky, Prince of Wales wedding elopement

It’s already an honour to be asked to take part in such memorable days in people’s lives, but even more so when that day is exceptionally intimate. Becky and Ryan travelled to Waterton all the way from the Eastern US to have their Prince of Wales wedding elopement. Only the two of them, myself, and their officiant were present for the beautiful ceremony. (I won’t count the group of tourists yelling about a bear in the distance… they were far enough away!) They took their time to take in the scenery, sharing many quiet moments together most couples don’t have a chance to experience during their ceremonies.

It was such a still day behind the Prince of Wales Hotel, the first time this year I’ve been lucky enough to experience this! They could not have asked for more perfect weather. After their ceremony and a few photos around the hotel, we headed over to Red Rock Canyon. Not being from the area, they trusted me to choose our photo locations and I knew I made a good choice when they first approached the canyon and exclaimed, “Wow!”

As much as they have a quiet, nurturing presence around each other, they also have a silly side that I loved to see. Their hiking boots were a perfect touch to bring their interests into the photos AND make climbing into the canyon that much easier.

Congratulations, Ryan and Becky!
