Kathleen & Mike, Colorful Summer Norland Wedding Album

The Norland Historic Estate ends up in many of my wedding albums, and for good reason! The timeless look of this Lethbridge wedding venue lends itself perfectly to the heirloom quality of albums. Kathleen and Mike’s wedding there this past summer created a colorful summer Norland wedding album, featuring their themes of lemons, cross-stitching, and bright pink flowers.

This is an example of the Modern+ Wedding Album with a charcoal leather spine.

Calgary Lougheed House Wedding Album [Edina & Eric]

Edina & Eric, Calgary Lougheed House Wedding Album

It’s never too late to get an album! Edina had planned on creating her own, but a few years (and kids) later, she passed the torch back to me to help her out. I had to go back in the archives a bit to create Edina and Eric’s Calgary Lougheed House wedding album and loved revisiting this beautiful wedding. This is still one of my favorite winter weddings to date!

Edina and Eric chose some of the more dramatic black and white images that were taken inside the historic Lougheed House. These made for gorgeous large featured images.

Best of 2018 – A Year of Weddings from Photography by Tanya Plonka

best Lethbridge wedding photography of 2018

2018 was a great year! Cam and I spent so much of the year with people totally in love and the joy was contagious. These probably aren’t truly our best wedding photos from the last year, but they definitely made me smile going back through the memories!

This year we saw a bride ride a horse for the first time ever in her wedding dress, photographed through smoky skies, and laughed at far more hilarious kids than any past year. Like, so many kids let loose this year that there must have been some memo passed around at the beginning of the wedding season.

Even though I picked most of these out of my blog edits, I made it a goal to choose photos that have never been on social media! There’s a good chance you’ve never seen most of these. Unless you’re my mom – she reads and likes pretty much everything I post. (Hi, Mom!)

I hope you enjoy looking through our best wedding photos of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

Lethbridge Research Centre Wedding Album [Krysty & Kole]

Krysty and Kole, Lethbridge Research Centre wedding album

I decided I was due for a sample album update this year and chose to create a Lethbridge Research Centre wedding album out of Krysty and Kole’s wedding last September. Their wedding was a perfect fit to show potential clients as it starts with both of them getting ready at the Lethbridge Coast Hotel in the morning and has all parts of the day until their sparkler exit at night.

The full page spreads of the Modern+ Album were perfect for showing off large images of their ceremony at the Lethbridge Research Centre, full wedding party against the coulees, and sunset photos at Henderson Lake just before dinner.

Choosing the spine colour was a tough choice as their wedding had a few gray tones, but the natural colours on the cusp of autumn would look amazing in a brown. In the end I chose the dark brown leather spine and chocolate album bag to accent their photos. Thanks to the popularity of this album style and its really fast turnaround time, this year forward I’ll only be offering this style for weddings. If you’ve seen the other styles and still prefer those, they are still available by special request!

It takes a lot of people to make your wedding dreams a reality. Your wedding planner, gets all the details in order, and works with the dozens of vendors that prepare the venue, the flowers, the music, food, and the transportation.

The bride and bridesmaids are wearing beautiful dresses in the latest fashion. The Honeymoon plans have been made and now the moment is here to join your life partner forever.

Yes at that tender moment your photographer is focusing, waiting and capturing the perfect scene. She is with you when you exchange rings. She is near when you throw the bouquet, cut the cake, and cry at the father-daughter dance. Your photographer is freezing this moment in time for you. She is a very important part of your wedding. So it is a very good idea if the bride and groom share their dream with the photographer.

Norland Estate Wedding Album [Raiven & Jonathan]

Norland Historic Estate wedding album

Weddings at The Norland Historic Estate Venue are some of my favorite to put into albums! I was so excited to receive Raiven and Jonathan’s Norland Estate wedding album after they chose their final images. Their autumn wedding day featured gorgeous warm tones that went perfectly with a chocolate brown design, brown leather spine, and brown cloth bag. I really love how many full page spreads we were able to work into the design.

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.
