Nikka Yuko Autumn Couples Photos [Charleen & Chris]

Nikka Yuko autumn couples photos

I absolutely love doing Nikka Yuko autumn couples photos, so I was excited when Charleen and Chris wanted it as their photo location. Every few years they update their photos and I always look forward to seeing them again. This year we closed out the garden’s season with this photo session. We were the very last photoshoot on closing day! The colours that were left were absolutely gorgeous. It didn’t even matter that many had already blown away in the wind.

Chris and Charleen remain every bit as obviously in love year after year. Getting Charleen to stand on tiptoes for a kiss made her giggle and we joked that she didn’t need to bring shoes to their session with how often I had her go barefoot.

Nicholas Sheran Family Engagement Photos [Kelsey & Aaron]

Nicholas Sheran family engagement photos

When Kelsey and Aaron got engaged, they wanted to celebrate with family as soon as possible! The couple from Ontario booked a trip to Alberta at the very end of summer to visit Kelsey’s father’s side of the family. They decided to celebrate their mini family reunion with a portrait session at Nicholas Sheran Lake in Lethbridge.

Kelsey was so excited to see her grandparents again! These photos were a big deal since her grandmother is usually behind the camera taking photos of the rest of the family. They finally got to get her in the photos!

We took the opportunity to spend half of the session on family photos and half on engagement photos of the couple. Kelsey loves being around water, so Nicholas Sheran was the perfect location for them.

University of Lethbridge Anniversary Photoshoot [Elaine & Kris]

University of Lethbridge anniversary photoshoot

Elaine and Kris celebrated 20 years of marriage with a University of Lethbridge anniversary photoshoot. They first met in the science labs at the university so they included that in the theme of the photos with lab coats and goggles! Kris got us special access to the Science Commons building at the U of L so we could make use of the periodic table display to go with the science/lab theme.

We did some non-science photos as well since such an important wedding anniversary shouldn’t be all wrapped in a theme! The campus has so many great spots so we made use of the gathering areas in the building as well as checking out the coulees.

Congratulations on this special anniversary, Elaine and Kris! :)

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. :)

Pavan Park Golden Hour Engagement Photos [Erin & Jean]

Pavan Park golden hour engagement photos

I’ll be travelling out of Lethbridge for Erin and Jean’s wedding, but for now they came to Lethbridge for their stunning Pavan Park golden hour engagement photos. Erin and Jean wanted a country feel for their engagement photos to match their upcoming wedding, and I love the horse trails in Pavan Park for that vibe. The day they picked was so perfect in the river bottom. The entire park was already full of rich golden tones despite it being so early in autumn.

Erin and Jean have a beautiful quiet calmness with each other. They are both such sweet people, and I can’t wait to spend their wedding day with them!

Crowsnest Winter Engagement Photos [Ashley & Stefan]

Crowsnest winter engagement photos

Ashley and Stefan took a detour while on their way to visit family and made a special stop for Crowsnest winter engagement photos. We lucked out with a fresh snowfall just in time because even the Crowsnest Pass was looking a little brown and dry for this time of year!

The couple were involved with another wedding I’ve photographed, so it was so much fun to get to focus on them this time! They have such great energy and are so cute and snugly together.

We started with the Miner’s Path for a forest look then headed into the wind to get a mountain view. (At this point Stefan pondered why he let his hair grow long, ha ha.)

I can’t wait for their wedding!
