Late Autumn Indian Battle Park Couples Photos

It was so great to finally get Orlena and Wayne in front of my camera! Between illnesses, family emergencies, and rain (just to name a few things!), it seemed like it might not happen but finally the stars aligned… and we managed to do it before the snow stayed for good! I was surprised how much colour we were able to find in the river bottom after all of the snow, rain, and wind that took place the week before. We had a perfect early evening for late autumn Indian Battle Park couples photos by the high level bridge and any chilliness was negated by how cuddly Wayne and Orlena were together. I loved how squishy their hugs were and how much Orlena grinned every time Wayne kissed her :)

Waterton Anniversary Portrait Session [Louis & Laurie]

Waterton anniversary portrait session

Louis is a true romantic. For his 50th wedding anniversary with Laurie he surprised her with a trip to Waterton, a stay at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel, a fun weekend filled with exploring the park, and a Waterton anniversary portrait session.

I met with them at the hotel where we decided against the overlook photos in the original plan… because my goodness, was it windy! Instead we found shelter lower down at Linnett Lake and within the townsite by the docks, and luckily didn’t run into any of the bears that have been frequenting the town. (Though we were told we missed a bear visit by 15 minutes!)

Don’t let the fact that they prefer to be serious in photos fool you… throughout the session, Louis and Laurie constantly made each other laugh and are obviously still so in love after all these years. I wish them another happy 50 years together :)

Waterton Autumn Engagement Photos [Erik & Alena]

Waterton autumn engagement photos

Erik and Alena split their engagement portraits into two sessions so they could capture both winter and autumn in the mountains. Their winter photos proved to be a challenge when we had a snow-free February and now that it came time for the autumn session, we almost got snow! (The snow literally came the next day.) I think we’ll have better luck getting the correct weather for their upcoming summer wedding ;)

This time around we did Waterton autumn engagement photos and I was happy they braved the rain as I dragged them around the town site. I think the speed with which we ran around distracted them from the all the wind and dampness and better let them focus on being so cute together and having fun!

Crowsnest Pass Autumn Engagement Session [Brittany & Sam]

Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session

Brittany was a bridesmaid in one of our favourite past weddings so I was elated when she contacted me for her own wedding! Her and Sam will be getting married in Calgary next year, so for a change of scenery beforehand we planned out a Crowsnest Pass autumn engagement session. We weren’t sure if there would be green leaves, fall colours, or a blanket of snow – you never know with the Pass – but we lucked out with a fairly calm day and AMAZING colours… we definitely picked the right weekend to do this!

Sam and Brittany love vacationing in the Pass and knew of a few good spots I’ve never checked out before (I always joke about how I never explored until I moved away from the area!). I was very glad to make use of their expertise :) Brittany and Sam have such a quiet calm about them and are so comfortable around each other. I loved watching what a great match they are.

Lundbreck Falls summer engagement photos

Amanda and Jesse decided to do Lundbreck Falls summer engagement photos to make use of the beautiful weather we had this summer. It also gave us an excuse to go on a bit of an adventure for photos as their wedding will be taking place in the city. They are so comfortable in each other’s arms and exude happiness together. They are such a perfect couple!

Leitch Collieries Engagement Photos [Desirée & Craig]

Leitch Collieries engagement photos

If their Leitch Collieries engagement photos were any indication, Desirée and Craig’s wedding is going to be a blast! They are so happy together that they couldn’t help but burst out laughing every few minutes during photos. It’s so amazing to see this intensity of happiness! They have found such fantastic partners in each other. They are equal parts madly in love and not having to take themselves seriously.

I’m very glad these photos happened as I had to drive through what easily could have become a tornado to reach them. Can you believe how perfect the weather was for their photos after all that? We didn’t have a single drop of rain threaten us and the cloudy skies made the architecture there look like a dramatic old castle.
