Whoop Up Days Engagement Photos [Annelies & Kyle]

Lethbridge Whoop Up Days engagement photos

Annelies was torn between doing Whoop Up Days engagement photos and using her fiancĂ© Kyle’s dairy farm as a backdrop… so why not just use both? ;)

We started out at his farm just outside of Lethbridge on a beautiful evening with golden sunlight. There were so many great spots there as we drove around (barns, beautiful old trees, an amazing corn field) and we were definitely of interest to the cows who stopped eating dinner to pose for their own photos.

When we were finished at the farm and the couple went through a quick wardrobe change, we headed back into Lethbridge to visit the Whoop Up Days fair. It’s usually tough to schedule photos to happen during the limited time the fair is here so I’m very glad we could make it work there with all the lights and bright colors.

I can’t wait for their winter wedding coming up!

The Sheepdogs concert photos at Whoop Up Days in Lethbridge

The Sheepdogs, hailing from Saskatoon, kicked of this year’s Whoop Up Days celebrations at the Gas King stage on Tuesday. It’s been a while since the fair brought in a current rock band so it was a treat to enjoy this concert while scarfing down mini donuts :) They put on such a great show and packed the field.

Lethbridge Whoop Up Days

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

This year I did Lethbridge’s Whoop Up Days a little differently… instead of going on rides and packing along a point and shoot, I brought a tripod and a good camera! I dragged myself out there with the intention to stay just a little past twilight, which would be about two hours; Cam was too sick to go and I was in a grumpy, tired mood all day, so it took a lot of effort to leave the house. Once I got there, I had so much fun taking photos that I stayed for over three hours :) I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now and glad I finally crossed it off the to-do list.

Sadly they raised the price of individual ride tickets so I opted not to take in a ride, but instead enjoyed a jumbo “elephant ear” as a reward when I was finished, and ate it while watching Prism. Heck yeah! (more…)

Chelsey & Eric

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

This last very beautiful Saturday I got to shoot the wedding of Eric and Chelsey (Julie’s bridesmaid) and had such a great time…. I anticipated it would be so much fun, and I was not let down at all! These two are young, totally in love, and (my personal favorite) a little bit silly, which all amounted to such great moments for me to capture! We worked super fast to fit in all the wonderful ideas we had, and ran totally on time all day – they even had time for a few spins on the ferris wheel!
