Lake Louise Snowy Winter Wedding [Alex & Erika]

Alex and Erika, Lake Louise snowy winter wedding

I adore tiny, intimate weddings and Erika and Alex had the ultimate: a beautiful Lake Louise snowy winter elopement, planned at quite the last minute. With less than a week’s notice (and the day after moving, no less), Cam and I were on our way to Lake Louise to capture the couple’s gorgeous day.

Their ceremony was held at the classic Deer Lodge near the lake and the rustic feel of the hotel was a perfect compliment to Erika’s vintage sense of style; she would have fit in perfectly when the lodge first opened! I loved the contrast to Alex’s modern look of his slim fitting gray suit and matching high-tops.

Erika was hoping for a winter wonderland and she definitely got it! After a very frigid week, Lake Louise warmed up just in time for their wedding photos but not so much that any snow melted away. Even the ice castle was still left standing on the lake. Between the lodge and the lake, we had no shortage of photo opportunities.

Their ceremony was beautiful and quiet, and their officiant took her time to make it that much more special. We were so happy to be able to take part.

Congratulations, Alex and Erika!

Calgary Lougheed House Winter Wedding [Edina & Eric]

Eric & Edina, Calgary Lougheed House wedding

Eric and Edina’s Calgary winter wedding was the perfect start to the 2014 season! They held both their ceremony and reception at Calgary’s historic Lougheed House with their closest family and friends. It was a beautiful intimate event filled with so much laughter, love, and joy.

Eric’s daughter Svea was a very important part of the day and had a special part just for her in the ceremony. She even got to wear a dress in her favorite color, pink! However, she was quite disappointed the limo wasn’t also pink, which would have been fitting for how much Edina looked like a Barbie in her mermaid-style wedding dress.

We had such a great time with them all day and felt so welcomed by their families.

Congratulations, Eric & Edina!

Snowy Lethbridge Engagement Photos [Michelle & Oscar]

Snowy Lethbridge engagement photos

After lots of wedding planning phone calls, I finally got to meet Oscar and Michelle for their snowy Lethbridge engagement photos and had such a great time with them! They are so sweet together and I was surprised that they’ve been dating for 7 years; their love feels so fresh and new.

They drove down for the afternoon for their photos and we started in Indian Battle Park to take advantage of the fresh, untouched snow. However, it was pretty chilly so we quickly rushed over to Casa to finish the photos!

They were total naturals in front of the camera, but I’m not sure if they realize that themselves because they kept checking with me to see how they were doing! They are just so comfortable together that they naturally fell into each others arms in just the right way.

I can’t wait for their Crowsnest Pass mountain wedding this spring!

Crowsnest Pass Winter Engagement Photos [Jeff & Kayla]

Crowsnest Pass engagement photos in winter

I’m so excited to work with Kayla and Jeff for their Crowsnest Pass wedding next summer! I’ve already done a few photos with Kayla when she was a bridesmaid in her sister Erika’s wedding, so it will be fun for them to trade places this time. We headed out to the Pass for their winter engagement session to get some gorgeous snowy winter photos in the trees, and luckily our chilly week of -20C finally broke and we had warm weather and sun :)

We began the session on the Miner’s Path for some nature images and even with the warm weather, the snow still seems so untouched and fresh there. (We just had to be SUPER careful over the icy paths!). Afterwards, to get a better splash of color in the photos, we visited the old buildings of downtown Coleman and by then we were quite happy to be back in the sunlight!

Lethbridge Zombie Engagement Photos [Lorianne & Shreyo]

Lethbridge zombie engagement photos

This is my kind of engagement session. As soon as I found out Lorianne and Shreyo were up for doing zombie engagement photos, I knew I would get along great with them! This took a bit of coordination with them coming from out of town and having to get together some of Lethbridge’s finest undead, but the end result was sooooo worth it. The couple who can take out zombies together definitely stays together, and Lorianne and Shreyo had some mighty fine zombie fighting skills.

Cute Lethbridge Casa Children Session [Stefan]

Cute Lethbridge CASA Children Session

The last time I saw Stefan, he couldn’t run away on his own yet… now he’s soooo much bigger and has just celebrated his 2nd birthday! It was a little too chilly and windy for him outside on our first try so instead we went to the beautiful new(ish) Casa arts building here in Lethbridge for his cute children’s session.

For a two year old, Stefan is soooo well behaved. We still had to move quickly to keep his interest, but he was on his best behavior and actually stayed put (briefly!) where we put him. He pretends to be shy but then drops super flirty smiles, at least when I make fart noises :) (more…)
