Wedding & Family Anthology Albums [Vanessa & Robert]

Thursday, September 8th, 2022

wedding & family anthology albums designed in Lethbridge

Vanessa and Robert started their family’s album anthology with matching album designs of their wedding, maternity, and first family photos. It’s a significant first heirloom for their family and was so much fun to create a cohesive set! This was my first time designing a set of matching wedding and family anthology albums. Usually the design process takes place at different times between the milestones and certain features get discontinued from companies. Being able to do this these all at once meant matching everything right down to the leather choices and layout themes!

Galt Museum Ceremony and Reception [Ashley & Stefan]

Tuesday, September 6th, 2022

Ashley & Stefan, Galt Museum ceremony and reception

Ashley and Stefan’s wedding may have set a new record for the amount of people crying at a wedding. I love all that emotion! Their Galt Museum ceremony and reception took place at the end of summer, where they travelled back to their hometown area of Lethbridge to be closer to family. This also meant access to gorgeous classic cars, and a stylized rental home for getting ready in!

It was such a pleasure to work with this family again. Although it was my first time meeting Ashley’s family, it was obvious why they are such a good fit with Stefan’s. Both families are so kind and welcoming, and also ready to break out into side splitting laughter. While listening to stories from early in Ashley and Stefan’s relationship, it was clear the couple prioritizes each other and knew what a perfect match they were right from the beginning. (Plus bonus points that they met how Cam and I met!)

Congratulations, Ashley and Stefan!

Payne Lake Summer Wedding [Prescilla & Dane]

Thursday, August 18th, 2022

Prescilla & Dane, Payne Lake summer wedding

Prescilla and Dane planned their entire Payne Lake summer wedding so that they could enjoy the beautiful views outside of Waterton Park all day. They rented a property along the lake so that they could have everything in one place! After getting ready at the house, they had their ceremony at the lakeside with a tented outdoor reception right next to it. It’s so beautiful there that we didn’t even need to leave for photos in another location!

Their son Levi played an important part in the day, standing in the wedding party with Dane. We made sure he was included in a bunch of their portraits, and I only made him hold his mom’s hand a couple times! They are already established as a family, and this wedding was just to officially celebrate that.

The entire day was full of laughter and many failed attempts to keep things PG. Their dogs partied harder than all of the other guests combined and were passed out before the reception even started.

Congratulations, Prescilla and Dane!

Lethbridge County Farm Wedding [Skye & Dave]

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Skye & Dave, Lethbridge County farm wedding

Skye and Dave held their Lethbridge County farm wedding at their own place. It made the outdoor event so much more meaningful for them and their guests, and meant the dogs got to take part throughout the day. Just like at their engagement session, their dogs were absolutely excited about everything. Once they got used to all the people there, the dogs followed us around for photos and were easily distracted with a game of fetch.

A lot of work had been done since I was last at their farm. Dave cleaned up all of the areas we had discussed using for portraits, and Skye put so much work into the flower arrangements throughout their yard. They decorated their back patio and yard with hanging lights for an evening outdoor reception, and created a beautiful laid back country wedding.

Congratulations, Skye and Dave!

EID Historical Park Wedding in Scandia [Erin & Jean]

Thursday, August 4th, 2022

Erin & Jean, EID Historical Park wedding in Scandia

There are so many cute small towns in our area. Erin and Jean’s wedding brought us out to Scandia near Brooks, where they planned their EID Historical Park wedding to be close to home and make it extra special. Their ceremony was held outdoors in front of the park’s gorgeous red barn, and we had no shortage of portrait locations between the park and surrounding areas.

Erin and Jean opted to have a first look at Erin’s family’s home. They used the beautiful row of trees that Erin helped her family pick out when she was a child (her dad said she had specified “trees with leaves” when they were choosing). Doing all of the emotional parts early was smart because it got everyone’s crying out before the ceremony (so they’d be recharged to cry again at the reception). That being said, both Erin and Jean were too busy smiling at their first look to take time crying!

Congratulations, Erin & Jean!

Springbreak Flower Farm Greenhouse Wedding [Hannah & Mark]

Thursday, July 21st, 2022

Hannah & Mark, Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding

Hannah and Mark’s Springbreak Flower Farm greenhouse wedding centred around their love of adventuring outdoors. They chose their mountain venue in the Crowsnest Pass and wore hiking boots with their wedding attire. Any adventure they’ve embarked on with hiking boots has worked out, so why not extend those good vibes to their marriage? :)

The couple opted to have a first look in the greenhouse before their early evening ceremony, and we visited the nearby waterfall for their portraits. Their hiking boots meant we could get right up to the falls.

After the outdoor ceremony, their reception started with speeches inside the greenhouse, and finished off the night with one of the most active dance floors we’ve seen!

They had such huge smiles on their faces through the entire day that we barely needed to direct them. It’s so amazing to see high school sweethearts have a love that flourishes into such a happy life together. They are such sweet, caring people surrounded by that same love from their family and friends, and we were so grateful they extended that warmness to us sharing the day with them.

Congratulations, Hannah and Mark!
