Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

CASA winter engagement photos

Becky and William got an early start on planning their autumn wedding for next year and took care of their Casa winter engagement photos as soon as possible. They are so ridiculously cute together and make such a great couple! They have great senses of humors and were so laid back for the session. We were all well behaved and didn’t photobomb the news segment being aired there even though we joked about it ;)

At the end, we couldn’t forget about the pretty snow and snuck outside for a few final pictures.


Lethbridge Winter Wedding [Jennifer & David]

Lethbridge winter wedding

This post is a little late, but Lorelei had first dibs on showing the photos :)

Last December I had the pleasure of second shooting for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jennifer and David’s snowy Lethbridge winter wedding. It was extremely cold that day so we mostly stuck indoors with Casa, their church, and their reception venue, but at the end there were brave enough to head out with their fur shawls for a few snow pictures too!

I started out the day with the boys at Casa, and soon Lorelei and the girls joined us.


Lethbridge Farm Extended Family Photos [Linda & Ed]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portraits

Linda and Ed were going to have the whole gang together in Lethbridge for one weekend and decided that was the perfect time to get some extended family photos done! Linda’s parents’ farm on the edge of the city provided us with a fun, unique, and meaningful location with so many neat spots to use (my favorite being, of course, the awesome old truck!). We had to be a little careful getting around, though… this was the day of the big snow melt and most of the property was covered in several inches of water that couldn’t absorb through the frozen ground! Luckily we found some helpful pieces of plywood that worked as platforms in the trouble spots.

The family was so fun and joking together the whole time, plus Ed used to develop photos so we had a few things to chat about! My favorite connection was definitely between Austin and his sisters… the little girls clearly look up to their big brother and were so happy together!


Indoor Lethbridge Winter Engagement Session [Cheryl & Josh]

indoor Lethbridge winter engagement session

So cute! I was so excited for Cheryl and Josh’s autumn wedding following their indoor Lethbridge winter engagement session and could already tell how much fun it was going to be spending their day with them. Cheryl and Josh were total naturals in front of the camera and super easy to work with, and I’m sure they appreciated being able to do the photos in the warm indoors when it was so chilly outside :) Luckily Cheryl had a cute animal hat and was brave enough to go outside for a few final snaps!

p.s. How adorable is Cheryl’s dress?


Snowy Winter Lethbridge Engagement Photography [Aamee & Jason]

Snowy winter Lethbridge engagement photography

Aamee and Jason ended up choosing quite the chilly day for their snowy winter engagement photo session here in Lethbridge; we were expecting warm weather and instead got a blizzard! It definitely worked out in our favor because even though it was too cold to stay outside for very long, the snow made their outdoor photos look so dreamy and bright. I’m sure their cute pooches King Kong and Batman were also happy that they got lots of hugs and got to be packed around instead of stuck in the cold snow!

We started out the session in the much warmer indoors of the University of Lethbridge and had such great bright light coming in from the snow outside. Aamee and Jason are so cute and sweet together, so of course my favorite photos of them were when they got right in close and cuddly. Aamee also brought along a few really fun props we were able to use in their engagement photos!

I’m sure we will have much warmer weather for their Norland Bed & Breakfast wedding this June!
