Pincher Creek Wedding Album Design [Dixie & Trevor]

Pincher Creek wedding album

Designing this Pincher Creek wedding album meant I got to relive how fun Dixie and Trevor’s wedding was! This Modern+ Album came with the wedding package they chose, and they had me choose the photos that go in it. For their reception, I designed with more of a collage style because they had way too many hilarious and emotional moments to choose from, like their garter removal prank or their huge dance circle with every guest up on the floor.

The charcoal leather binding and slate coloured album bag were a perfect complement to the silver colours in their wedding palette.

Best Wedding Photos of 2020 – From Photography by Tanya Plonka

best Lethbridge wedding photos of 2020

What a year 2020 was! By the time March rolled around, we weren’t sure if we were still going to be able to call ourselves “wedding photographers” this year, or if COVID was going to cancel weddings and events completely. Quite a few of our couples decided to postpone their weddings until 2021, but the rest decided to shake up their plans and go for it!

We saw a little less travelling this year, but still managed to visit Waterton many times and went as far as the Pioneers Cabin in Edmonton. Many of the weddings were made more personal by cancelling venue reservations and moving the festivities to family’s and friend’s farms and ranches, where we found some stunning views of the Alberta landscape.

With 2020 being such an oddball, it was totally fitting that it was also a leap year! We started out the year with James and Kaylene’s leap year / 1920s themed wedding before we had any idea of what was to come.

Norland Winter Wedding Album [Kaylene & James]

Norland winter wedding album

Kaylene and James had me design their Norland winter wedding album from the ground up, starting with selecting all of the images. I have just as much trouble narrowing down the photos as my couples do, so trust me, this is quite a task!

The album uses a clean white design with monochromatic details to match the gray, silver, and black colours that were used in James and Kaylene’s 1920s inspired wedding at the Norland Historic Estate.

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

best Lethbridge wedding photography 2019

2019 was a busy one for us with Cam and I travelling all over the province! We got to take photos in some fun new places this year, including Heritage Acres and Boulder Run in Pincher Creek, the town of De Winton, and the rooftop patio of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Waterton was a very popular destination this year and we spent so much time there, I considered setting up a tent!

The winter weddings started in September with our first huge snowfall of the season, giving their Brazilian guests a real taste of Canada.

Animals stole the show many times this year. One couple was stalked by a cat, another bride included her pet cow in photos, and so many dogs got to witness their people get married.

From a red wedding dress to Harry Potter magic to alleyway beer shotgunning, 2019 was an unforgettable year.

I hope you enjoy looking through our best wedding photos of 2019 as much as I liked choosing them!

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.

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