Waterton Spring Engagement Photos [Hillary & Kevin]

Waterton spring engagement photos

Hillary and Kevin traveled down to meet me in Waterton for some spring engagement photos and we had a glorious mix of both spring and winter! The snowfall the day before still stuck in the town despite the temperatures climbing back up, so we were able to have winter wonderland type photos with gorgeous sunshine, blue skies, and enough heat to make coats unnecessary. I even got a little sunburned! With it being off season, we had most of the town to ourselves and luckily didn’t have to worry about scaling too many large snow banks.

These two are so fantastic together. Hillary and Kevin both took turns instigating who was the goofy one (and thus making the other laugh hysterically). I am sure they have no shortage of happiness when they are near each other.

Crowsnest Pass Winter Wedding [Michelle & Oscar]

Michelle & Oscar, Crowsnest Pass winter wedding

Michelle & Oscar traveled all the way from Calgary for their Crowsnest Pass “winter” wedding. It may have taken place in the spring, but it sure looked like winter! Just days before, and even the next day, the grass had been turning green and there were no more hints of winter. Out of no where came a heavy snowfall warning for all of southern Alberta. We definitely lucked out as a few places had more of a rainy snow, but the Crowsnest Pass looked like something out of a fairy tale. Plus, by the time we headed outside, most of the heavy snowfall had stopped, leaving only gorgeous snow covered landscapes.

The Crowsnest Pass was a perfect fit for their wedding as it allowed them to get married in the mountains and still include family in a special way. Their ceremony was performed at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Blairmore by Michelle’s uncle. It was an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family. Their ceremony was so emotional and full of so many happy tears and laughter.

After the ceremony, we explored the Crowsnest Pass with Oscar and Michelle and their two friends. It was fun having another couple as their bridal party because I could get them to be all cute and intimate too (normally that would be a little awkward!). They were so much fun and I loved all of the excitement they expressed over the landscapes. I sometimes take it for granted having grown up there, but they reminded me just how beautiful it is!

Oscar and Michelle are so sweet together and I know they are going to have such a happy life.

Congratulations, Oscar & Michelle!

Lethbridge Winter Park Engagement Photography

Tish and Eric were some of the lucky runner up winners from my Lethbridge Bridal Extravaganza draw and got to spend an afternoon having their session with me! They were getting married the next year so it was the perfect time to join me for some winter park engagement photos. Even though it was very chilly, the sun and fresh coating of snow were gorgeous and made it quite lovely to be outside at the university lake!

Tish and Eric are such a great match and I loved watching them spend the whole session joking around with each other :) They are so sweet together!

Crowsnest Pass Mountain Maternity Session [Erika & Josh]

Crowsnest Pass winter maternity session

It is always so amazing watching the people I grew up with move through such huge milestones in their lives. Erika and Josh’s wedding was a big one for me, and now they have had their first baby! I am so happy and excited for them and it was obvious they are feeling those same things; they were radiating so much positivity at their Crowsnest Pass mountain maternity session. Even as we walked between locations, they couldn’t help but discuss big plans for their little girl (like how she totally needs a tree house to play with her dolls)!

I’m so excited to get to meet little Molly very soon!

Markin Hall Engagement Photos [Amelia & Abram]

Markin Hall Engagement Photos

I was so happy that we had all this fresh snow for Amelia and Abram’s engagement photos, and even happier that they were willing to brave it out there with me for what seemed like a very long, frigid 10 minutes! Luckily we had the warm Markin Hall at the university to escape to right after, and the contrast seemed like a bit of a shock.

If Amelia was this giggly and happy for engagement photos, I can’t wait to see what she is like on their wedding day. I think Abram did pretty good for not liking having his photo taken! We even got some smiles out of him :) I’m so excited for their wedding next month and can’t wait to see how beautiful Amelia is going to be in her dress after seeing the sneak peak photo of it.

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!
