Lethbridge Winter Engagement Photos [Elsa & Larry]

Lethbridge winter engagement photos

Elsa and Larry’s adorable interactions together stood out at a family member’s wedding last year when we first met them. I was so excited when they called me to photograph their own wedding. As I expected, they got even cuter when all the attention was on them! They were full of non-stop laughter during their Lethbridge winter engagement photos.

We chose the river bottom as their photo location because of the importance the area has to them. It’s been the location of their favourite dates and was where Larry popped the question. Elsa had a few spots in mind for their wedding photos later in the year, so we picked an alternative this time and ventured into the Helen Schuler Nature Reserve. It was such a gorgeous winter day, which was ironic since the wedding where I met them was much colder and snowier but in the autumn!

Henderson Lake couples photos

To celebrate their 5th anniversary, Renee and Dhrake had cute Henderson Lake couples photos done. Renee booked with me during our streak of -20C temperatures but we lucked out on their actual photo day. Despite still being January, it was like a sunny spring day!

Dhrake and Renee are adorable together and it didn’t take much to get them giggling and staring lovingly at each other. The couple came to Lethbridge together to both finish their schooling. They are so lucky they choose programs where they could be so close together!

Diamond City Couples Photos [Andrew & Nicole on the Cattle Ranch]

Diamond City couples photos

Andrew invited me out to the cattle ranch where he works to have Diamond City couples photos with his girlfriend Nicole. I first met Andrew and Nicole two years ago when their close friends got married and we visited this same cattle ranch for photos. This time we weren’t constrained to where a limo could take them and got to off-road a bit!

The ranch is gorgeous! Coulees and the river form a U-shape around the ranch, giving us river access with tons of yellow wildflowers leading the way to the water. The cows curiously watched us for a few minutes then got bored. This posed a challenge when Andrew and Nicole actually wanted photos with the cows, but the animals all turned their backsides to us!

Nicole and Andrew are adorable together. This would have been a great date night if I hadn’t been the third wheel ;)

Rustic Engagement Photos in the Crowsnest Pass [Nancy & Brett]

Crowsnest Pass rustic engagement photos

Nancy and Brett had their hearts set on the mountains for their session while still capturing rustic engagement photos. Coleman in the Crowsnest Pass had just the right feel for everything! After some woodsy vibes at the Miner’s Path, we went to the wide open valley that overlooks the mountains and then to downtown. They had one of their first dates in downtown Coleman near where we did the later portion of their photos. As soon as we arrived, they started smiling and reminiscing!

Despite having to get up early for the drive to the Crowsnest Pass, Nancy and Brett were so cheery and energetic. Their adoration for each other is almost contagious. Only a few minutes into our session, Nancy apologized: “Sorry if we’re kissing too much; we just can’t stop!”

Crowsnest Pass Misty Mountain Destination Engagement [Brietta & Sam]

Crowsnest Pass mountain destination engagement session

A chilly spring engagement shoot with Sam, Brietta and their trusty side-kick, Bakon the Dog

A surprise April snowfall didn’t dampen Brietta’s spirits when I told her the forecast.

“I bought a dress,” Brietta said. “I am going to wear it anyways! Haha.”

I’ve known Brietta for a few years, I first met her when she was the Event & Volunteer Engagement Coordinator for the MS Walk when I did volunteer photography for the walk. Brietta’s fiery; a go-getter. So her resolve to embrace the moment didn’t surprise me one bit!

Alberta Mountain Engagement Photos [Kristine & Kenneth]

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photos

Kristine and Kenneth decided that Alberta mountain engagement photos would be a fantastic idea. Neither of them are originally from Alberta and this landscape is one of our most defining features! We traveled to Coleman and Sentinel so we could take advantage of the forest along the Miner’s Path and the mountain vistas along Crowsnest Lake.

We were surprised with COLD. We were supposed to have one more day until the polar vortex swept through our edge of Alberta but it decided to come earlier! Despite the early spring look of everywhere we went, Kristine and Kenneth had to keep hiding their hands in each other’s pockets. At least it gave a perfect excuse for more snuggling!

They are so adorable together. Kenneth needed no direction to shower Kristine in cute kisses. All I really had to tell them was to keep looking like they were actually warm!
