Kevin & Kayla, snowy Coaldale winter wedding

December weddings are so much better with a nice fresh coat of snow. Kayla and Kevin had just that for their snowy Coaldale winter wedding! Even though it was a lot colder than anticipated and limited our outdoor time, we still managed to sneak out a couple times to make use of the beautiful snow. I’m glad we could after Kayla found just an awesome red barn!

We started out our photos in Lethbridge where Kayla and Kevin got to see each other for the first time and had a great time with their wedding party. I loved watching all the silly faces Kevin sneaks in to make Kayla giggle! Once we went outside, Kayla donned her gorgeous blue fur lined cape to stay warm.

Just before sunset, they had their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church. Their ring bearer and flower girl totally stole the show during the sermon (evidence to follow… keep reading!).

Congratulations, Kevin and Kayla!

Indian Battle Park snowy family photos

When Sacha hoped for snow for their session, we kept our fingers crossed extra hard – you just never know with the weather in Lethbridge – and we ended up so lucky (as I write this one day later, almost all of the snow has melted)! It was even a fairly warm day for November, unlike at my first photo session with them where it was barely -20C outside (this is one tough family). Danny and Sacha got the Indian Battle park snowy family photos they had hoped for and the kids were such great sports about it, as usual!

I can’t believe how big Midnight has grown since I last saw them, from not being able to hold his head up to his big brother Jayden having to wrangle him in as he runs away! We explored just outside of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and the boys had so much fun playing in the snow and jumping around to stay warm.

Paradise Canyon Winter Wedding [Rob & Kathy]

Rob & Kathy, Paradise Canyon winter wedding

When Kathy and Rob were planning their Paradise Canyon winter wedding, I’m sure they weren’t expecting spring rain! They were given a gorgeous February afternoon for the wedding which let Kathy really show off her stunning champagne lace dress outside.

They had their intimate ceremony indoors at Paradise Canyon with their only their children and parents in attendance. Their children, as well as Rob’s granddaughter, made up the wedding party to make everything that much more special.

Kathy, Rob, and their entire family were such happy people, completely joyous to be celebrating this day. Kathy and Rob are so in love and completely glow around each other.

Congratulations, Rob & Kathy!

Coleman Winter Engagement Photography [Erik & Alena]

Coleman winter engagement photography

Though Erik and Alena are from Calgary, they are passionate about the mountains and want everything about their wedding to be based on that majestic landscape. We decided to start out with Coleman winter engagement photography as their first session, hoping for the heavy snow that is typical of February. Imagine our surprise when February rolled around with record highs! Luckily the Miner’s Path is tucked away enough with little sunlight during the winter and the creek was still completely frozen. With some careful angles we made it look like winter never really left!

Lethbridge Snowy Family Photos [Brooklyn]

Lethbridge snowy family photos

What a fun first session of 2016! With a coating of fresh snow in Indian Battle Park, I got to meet little Brooklyn and her whole family on this nice warm day. She brought along her mom, dad, and both grandmothers for her Lethbridge snowy family photos. She was absolutely adorable, especially in her pink and white cowgirl outfit. Brooklyn had the best full body laughs and is such a happy kid. My fake fart sounds were a big hit for getting those big laughs out of her! Even though it was a little cold for her, she was such a great sport and had fun playing in the snow by the High Level Bridge with her family.

Lethbridge extended family Christmas photos

It means so much when families invite me into their homes during their limited reunion time together. The Major family had all of their children and grandchildren down in Lethbridge for the holidays and decided it was a great time to get some extended family Christmas photos. This family is hilarious and I loved all the goofy photos they wanted to do (each serious photo needed a goofy equivalent, of course!). Their interactions are so amazing and they really feed off each other’s creative energy.
