Lethbridge Family Photos With Dogs [Prescilla, Dane & Levi]

August 8th, 2022

family photos with dogs in Lethbridge

I will always say yes to family photos with dogs! Prescilla, Dane, Levi were fairly new to Lethbridge when they booked their portrait session. Getting photos in your new city is a great reason to have a photoshoot! They brought along their large but absolutely sweet dogs Ozzy & Butch who had pretty much the best time ever being able to run around with sticks and go swimming in the lake at the university. I love seeing the relationship between kids and their dogs, and Levi was so great with them! (They even tried to climb in trees after him.)

I can’t wait to see this family again at their wedding!

EID Historical Park Wedding in Scandia [Erin & Jean]

August 4th, 2022

Erin & Jean, EID Historical Park wedding in Scandia

There are so many cute small towns in our area. Erin and Jean’s wedding brought us out to Scandia near Brooks, where they planned their EID Historical Park wedding to be close to home and make it extra special. Their ceremony was held outdoors in front of the park’s gorgeous red barn, and we had no shortage of portrait locations between the park and surrounding areas.

Erin and Jean opted to have a first look at Erin’s family’s home. They used the beautiful row of trees that Erin helped her family pick out when she was a child (her dad said she had specified “trees with leaves” when they were choosing). Doing all of the emotional parts early was smart because it got everyone’s crying out before the ceremony (so they’d be recharged to cry again at the reception). That being said, both Erin and Jean were too busy smiling at their first look to take time crying!

Congratulations, Erin & Jean!

Coleman Summer Family Photos [Gerda & Jonathan]

Coleman summer family photos

Gerda and Jonathan wanted to go on a day trip adventure with their kids, so we decided to do Coleman summer family photos instead of sticking around the Lethbridge area! It was a really big deal to me to get to photograph them again and keep following as their family grows. The couple was celebrating their 11 year wedding anniversary and were one of the very earliest weddings I got to photograph!

Their family loves the Crowsnest Pass, so we travelled to the Miner’s Path to get beautiful forest shots. The location is very dog friendly as locals walk their dogs there, so it was perfect for their dog Bella the puggle to come along! The kids loved climbing on the fallen logs, finding the best sticks the pathway could offer, and chasing each other to get those sticks.

Surprise Maternity Announcement Photos [Jessica & Tyler]

surprise maternity announcement photos

Jessica and Tyler wanted to announce their pregnancy to Jessica’s family in a very memorable way. These surprise maternity announcement photos were disguised as a family session with Jessica’s parents. A few friends joined at the end to supposedly help with a photo for the couple’s wedding invitations. That’s when the big reveal came!

The couple travelled to Jessica’s hometown of the Crowsnest Pass to tell her parents the big news. She made the excuse that they needed updated family photos, so we spent the first part of the session doing just that! We went to the Miner’s Path with their dogs Trip and Chloe and acted like everything was totally normal. I had to try so hard not to laugh when Jessica’s mom told me the dogs were her grandkids because that’s all Jessica was giving her!

Coaldale Farm Engagement Photos [Skye & Dave]

Coaldale farm engagement photos

Skye and Dave are getting married at their farm next month, and decided to give it a test run by doing their engagement photos there first! They did their Coaldale farm engagement photos with the help of their energetic dogs Kip and Kyra. It is honestly pretty funny how clingy the dogs were! They took serious bribery to get them out of the photos.

There were so many beautiful spots on the farm that we’ll have no shortage on the wedding day! Skye and Dave are super sweet together and both have such happy personalities. Any serious moments we tried for didn’t last very long before turning into big smiles again. :)

Springbreak Flower Farm Greenhouse Wedding [Hannah & Mark]

July 21st, 2022

Hannah & Mark, Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding

Hannah and Mark’s Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding centred around their love of adventuring outdoors. They chose their mountain venue in the Crowsnest Pass and wore hiking boots with their wedding attire. Any adventure they’ve embarked on with hiking boots has worked out, so why not extend those good vibes to their marriage? :)

The couple opted to have a first look in the greenhouse before their early evening ceremony, and we visited the nearby waterfall for their portraits. Their hiking boots meant we could get right up to the falls.

After the outdoor ceremony, their reception started with speeches inside the greenhouse, and finished off the night with one of the most active dance floors we’ve seen!

They had such huge smiles on their faces through the entire day that we barely needed to direct them. It’s so amazing to see high school sweethearts have a love that flourishes into such a happy life together. They are such sweet, caring people surrounded by that same love from their family and friends, and we were so grateful they extended that warmness to us sharing the day with them.

Congratulations, Hannah and Mark!
