Girlfriends

August 1st, 2009

Yesterday I had a really fun shoot with friends Michelle, Katie, and Cynthia, who haven’t been together in Lethbridge as a trio in six years! These girls were great to work with and awesome at making each other laugh :)

Alisa & Chris

July 30th, 2009

Alisa and Chris’s wedding was one I had been looking forward to for quite a long time, since they were one of my earlier bookings for this year’s weddings and I had such a great time with them earlier this summer taking their first family photos after their little Eva was born. They chose the Norland Bed and Breakfast as their ceremony, getting ready, and weekend retreat location, and I couldn’t have been happier as this is one of my favorite places in Lethbridge! Not everyone is so blessed to have a huge white, pillared mansion with a grand piano to call their own, so it is nice to fake it once in a while ;)

Alisa was a little stressed before the ceremony since she was running a bit behind (which most brides do anyhow), but you could see all her concerns melt away the moment she saw Chris as she came up the aisle :)

We had a beautiful day to work with, and they were surrounded by so much love from their friends and family. Everyone was so great to work with, and I loved that Alisa was willing to yell at people to make my day go easier, ha ha!

I hope you guys are having fun in Vegas! Extra thanks to my second shooter for the day, Andrew Suderman, who was awesome to work with for the first time!

Shooting with Michael Warf – Ben & Kristen

July 24th, 2009

Since Michael Warf has been my second shooter many times this year, it was a treat to switch things up and second shoot for him a little while ago! Though I jumped into the day at formals, rather than the getting ready photos, it was easy to immediately take to Ben and Kristen, who were such a sweet couple. Our day eventually brought us to the small fair that was set up at the Enmax Center, and then to their gorgeous ceremony and reception at City Hall – what a great venue!

Thanks for bringing me along, Michael!

Janae

July 24th, 2009

Though Janae graduated some time ago, she never had photos done in her awesome blue dress… and better late than never! We spent a few gorgeous evening hours taking photos around town, and though she didn’t think she knew how to pose, she did a pretty good job following my directions :) After our nature-y stops we caught the amazing sunset, and faked some evening photos. This was such a great dress for her; it matched her eyes perfectly!

Andrew & Julie

July 23rd, 2009

It was such an honor to get to photograph Andrew and Julie’s wedding. I’ve known both of them since before they even dated, was let in on the proposal so I could video tape it, and now was able to be an important part of their special day. They are two very amazing people and compliment each other so well, and I had so much fun spending the day with them! Their families are generous and crazy like they are and I felt so welcome even though it was my first time meeting most members of the bridal party. Best part, Dino was the MC for the reception!

We have all missed Andrew while he teaches in Japan, and are sad to lose Julie to Japan now too, but I am so happy they can finally be together again! (I’ll have to put Japan on my ‘places to visit’ list.)

Ayako

July 21st, 2009

In honor of the last wedding I shot with Michael, where he tried to buy balloons for the photos and the Lethbridge wind absolutely crushed that idea, I made another attempt at balloons in photos and this time it (sort of) worked! (Sure, balloons are the new “colorful old chair on the road” prop for photos, but I had to try them at least once!) Ayako was beautiful and easy to work with and I had a great time shooting her. It’s awesome that she found me, since we were in the last Lethbridge College fashion show together, but didn’t know each other at the time (a true indication of how small Lethbridge is!).
