Waterton Bicycle Adventure Engagement Session [Krysty & Kole]

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Waterton bicycle adventure engagement session

Krysty and Kole are avid cyclists who love riding near Chief Mountain and wanted to incorporate that into their engagement photos. They brought their bikes out for a Waterton bicycle adventure engagement session, finishing the day with a scenic hike to the Bear’s Hump in town. It was my first time doing the hike and I was so excited after wanting to take photos there for so long! I was a little slower making it up the mountain than they were but at least it gave them time to change at the top :)

We started the session just outside of Waterton with their vintage bicycles. I love how they styled themselves for the session! Krysty even picked up a fresh bouquet of flowers for her bicycle basket. They are such a cute couple and so incredibly sweet to each other. I’m so happy they could bring me on their adventure that day!

Early Spring Lethbridge Engagement Photos [Alki & Sophia]

early spring Lethbridge engagement photos

Alki and Sophia came down to visit Sophia’s home town area over Easter and see family while planning their wedding for this summer. As part of their wedding preparations, I met up with them for their early spring Lethbridge engagement photos at Aperture Park at the University and it was awesome to meet them in person after only talking to them on the phone! They are so adorable together. They really feed off of each other’s light hearted energy while still sharing these romantic, introspective moments together. If they are this happy together normally, I can’t wait to see how big those smiles will be on the wedding day!

Lethbridge Casual Couples Portraits [A & J]

Lethbridge casual couples portraits

J’s mom wasn’t able to get all of her boys together for a photoshoot and instead gifted her photos to him and his gorgeous girlfriend A. J and A were so adorable together for their Lethbridge casual couples portraits. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so hilarious! A lot of their humour revolved around J making some ridiculous claim followed by A smacking him in the arm ;)

We did their session at Aperture Park at the U of L on such a warm, sunny early evening.

Snowy Coleman Engagement Session [Meaghan & Chad]

winter Crowsnest Pass engagement photos

Meaghan and Chad got so lucky with a snowy Coleman engagement session. When they booked weeks in advance, we had no idea what December would give us and just managed to miss the -20C temperatures! We started at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre parking lot for beautiful snowy views of the rock slide, but this proved to be the chilliest spot of all (it’s almost like being on an exposed mountain surface makes things windier! ;) ) and made our final stop at the Miner’s Path a very welcome warm visit.

They were very committed to their photos and willing to strip down to just sweaters, which looked so cute! I made sure they got to stay extra snuggly and warm their chilly hands up on each other as often as possible. This was definitely no challenge for them as being snuggly comes very naturally! I can’t wait for their wedding next summer, which should be a little easier when we aren’t in big coats and mittens ;)

Lethbridge University Lake Couple’s Session [Davina & Jonathan]

Lethbridge University Lake couple's session

Davina and Jonathan chose an almost summer-like day for their Lethbridge University Lake couple’s session in the late autumn. We hardly even had wind! This was a great thing as Davina has recently moved to Lethbridge from out of province and is still adjusting to our “breezes” we regularly get here ;)

While Davina has relocated here for work, her boyfriend Jonathan is still back home and he came to Lethbridge for a special visit with her. I really appreciate them taking a moment out of such an important week for a few photos! They brought along their adorable dog Lyndee, who has the cutest ears with curly hair. Lyndee loved sniffing around at the university but was easy to distract when we gave her bag of biscuits a good shake!

Lethbridge River Bottom Anniversary Portraits [Charleen & Chris]

Lethbridge River Bottom anniversary portraits

It was great to catch up with Charleen and Chris again for their Lethbridge river bottom anniversary portraits. I love so much that they keep up this tradition of updating their photos every few years for their anniversary, and keeping it close to their wedding date makes it so great for reflecting on how their relationship has grown. Even though they’ve been together a while, they are still giggly like newly weds and have no awkwardness about cuddling and being close to each other.

We spent a beautiful evening exploring behind the Helen Schuler Nature Centre for their anniversary session. The fall colours have been so amazing this year and I loved the colours Charleen and Chris chose to wear to go with it. It’s especially impressive when they put their wardrobes together at the last minute between having colds and being busy with work! ;)
