Crowsnest Pass winter maternity photos

A few months before their due date, I travelled down to Jena and Daniel’s mountain home for their Crowsnest Pass winter maternity photos. It’s so exciting to see them starting their family! Rufus, who has grown a lot bigger since their wedding, also got to be included in a bunch of photos. While he waited his turn, he got to excitedly zoom around in the snow outside.

Once we finished all the warm indoor photos, Jena got brave and headed outside in just a dress! She had a gorgeous flower crown to match the red, which looked so striking against the snow. Her and Daniel snuggled close to stay warm in the freezing temperatures and we loved the big fluffy snowflakes that fell around us.

Four Generation Family Photos in Lethbridge [Valerie & Louis]

four generation family photos in Lethbridge

Louis and Valerie’s granddaughter was visiting Lethbridge for Christmas, which was the perfect time to bring her great grandma, uncles, and aunty along and get some four generation family photos! Since the last time the kids had their photos taken, they tragically lost their brother. For these new photos, they brought along a treasured framed picture of him from that last session so he could still be included. It was a beautiful way to honour his memory and show that he’s still an important part of their lives.

Frosty Lethbridge Landscape Photography [The West Side]

frosty Lethbridge landscape photography

I always joke that I only take photos with people (or animals!) in them, but I’m always jealous of all the amazing photos landscape photographers take by getting up before sunrise. I did not get up before sunrise, but I did get up early enough on one of our recent foggy days to actually catch the hoarfrost and fog! I set off bundled up to take some frosty Lethbridge landscape photography.

Quickly I learned that it was only foggy for several blocks around my house and everywhere else was bathed in winter sunlight. Luckily the frost still clung to the trees so I wasn’t left cursing being out in the cold for nothing!

Terri & Craig, Waterton winter elopement

Terri and Craig got away from the city for the weekend for their Waterton winter elopement. It was a beautiful private event with just them, myself, and the marriage commissioner… very few guests were even in the park that day! It was so romantic to keep things so intimate. Their day will be so memorable not just for the intimacy, but for the weather. I think that was the craziest wind any of us have ever experienced! We managed to find enough shelter for photos and Terri’s shawl kept her mostly warm :) There was also the memorable fact of Terri having some wardrobe malfunctions with her dress, but luckily her shawl was there to save the day!

To get a break from the wind, they booked a room at the Waterton Lakes Lodge to have their wedding ceremony. They still got to have their mountain views through the window even if they couldn’t have an outdoor ceremony!

Congratulations, Terry and Craig!

Waterton Lakes Lodge Winter Wedding [Jeremiah & Hannah]

Jeremiah and Hannah, Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding

I’m not sure I have ever seen two people as excited to get married as Hannah and Jeremiah! Their relationship was love at first sight and it shows in how passionate they are around each other. It was hard to spot them without giant smiles while in each other’s company all day.

They planned their big day as a mini-destination trip with a Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding, and man did they ever get winter! Waterton was covered in several feet of snow with a fresh snowfall just in time for their wedding. For once, it wasn’t windy there! Their wedding party were great sports to go out in that much snow and we all lasted pretty long out there considering the temperature.

Both their ceremony and reception were held indoors at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort and they had beautiful lights set up behind the head table stage that made a perfect backdrop for both portions of the day.

Congratulations, Jeremiah and Hannah!

Lethbridge Snowy Late Winter Wedding [Koos & Denise]

Koos & Denise, Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding

When Denise and Koos planned their wedding, I think they were expecting a little more spring than the winter wonderland they received! The tiffany blue and gray color theme they chose looked gorgeous for their Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding, offering a great compliment to the cool hues and bit of blue popping out of the sky.

After their ceremony at the Lethbridge Netherlands Reformed Congregation, we met with them and their family and luckily could keep everyone inside and warm for their portraits. Next we were off to the Broxburn Cafe who generously let us take a few photos inside to warm up. Everything about that location looked fantastic with the wedding colors and their rustic touches. The wedding party was so awesome about sticking it out in the cold and smiling despite the temperatures!

Denise and Koos were so lost in each other throughout the day that they hardly noticed the cold. Their embraces kept them warm and showed off how sweet and caring their relationship is.

At the end of the night we returned to their reception at the Lethbridge Lodge where they had both hilarious comedy sketches and moving presentations from the family.

Thanks to Melanie at Photo Expressions for assisting that day.

Congratulations, Koos and Denise!
