Lethbridge river bottom family photography

Anna and John managed to get their whole family together for one weekend and celebrated the rare occurance with Lethbridge river bottom family photography. John received the VIP treatment as he had recently injured his foot and was wheeled from location to location by his grandchildren. All of the kids loved playing together and being able to spend time with their cousins, while the aunts and uncles taught the kids silly nicknames for each other. I was so happy we were able to organize everyone at the last minute for photos in Indian Battle Park!

Helen Schuler Wedding Elopement [Amberlea & Kevin]

September 6th, 2019

Amberlea & Kevin, Helen Schuler wedding elopement

Amberlea and Kevin knew they wanted their wedding ceremony somewhere beautiful outdoors while still making everything easy for their small guest list. A rooftop garden was the perfect solution! They decided on a Helen Schuler wedding elopement. Only their limited guests, mostly made up of their parents and children, knew the big secret… until Amberlea posted the news on Facebook to invite everyone to their reception at the Owl Acoustic Lounge later that night!

After their emotional rooftop wedding, they headed downtown for photos of just the two of them. Their vintage Chevy owning friend met us by Drunken Sailor, a very special place to Amberlea who used to work there. It’s also where she bought her wedding dress! We had a bit of a scare when the truck wouldn’t start but it pulled through just in time for us to use it in the nearby alley.

Congratulations, Amberlea and Kevin!

Bayshore Inn Wedding Elopement [Andrea & Jason]

September 3rd, 2019

Andrea & Jason, Bayshore Inn Wedding Elopement

When Andrea and Jason planned their Bayshore Inn wedding elopement, it was important that their families be the main focus. Both were bringing their amazing daughters into this new family and they played an important part in the ceremony. Andrea and Jason each read special vows to their new daughters, and the girls then did a necklace ceremony for each other as a joining of new sisters. There was not a dry eye through the ceremony, with Jason’s parents and sister hugging the girls for comfort in this overwhelmingly happy event.

Rain did not damper anyone spirits, and the staff at the Bayshore graciously let us use their indoor space while we waited for the downpour to end. Everything cleared just in time for the outdoor wedding ceremony, with kisses of sunlight right as Andrea and Jason shared their first married kiss! Everyone shared a toast on the Bayshore Chophouse’s patio before we headed over for a few last photos at Cameron Falls.

Congratulations, Andrea and Jason!

Rustic Engagement Photos in the Crowsnest Pass [Nancy & Brett]

August 29th, 2019

Crowsnest Pass rustic engagement photos

Nancy and Brett had their hearts set on the mountains for their session while still capturing rustic engagement photos. Coleman in the Crowsnest Pass had just the right feel for everything! After some woodsy vibes at the Miner’s Path, we went to the wide open valley that overlooks the mountains and then to downtown. They had one of their first dates in downtown Coleman near where we did the later portion of their photos. As soon as we arrived, they started smiling and reminiscing!

Despite having to get up early for the drive to the Crowsnest Pass, Nancy and Brett were so cheery and energetic. Their adoration for each other is almost contagious. Only a few minutes into our session, Nancy apologized: “Sorry if we’re kissing too much; we just can’t stop!”

Elegant Bayshore Inn Wedding in Waterton [Deandra & Phil]

August 27th, 2019

Deandra & Phil, Elegant Bayshore Inn Wedding

I knew when Deandra excitedly started her early wedding planning that not a detail would be missed. Her and Phil’s elegant Bayshore Inn wedding did not disappoint! The beautiful touches of soft pink throughout the decor and wardrobe created a luxurious feel while the natural elements like pine cones and baby’s breath tied everything back into the mountain scenery.

Phil knew right from the start that Deandra was the woman he wanted to marry. It showed every time he looked at her and a smile instantly came across his face. Deandra took Phil’s breath away as her brothers walked her down the aisle. Deandra had the biggest smile come over her as she peeked around the corner of the aisle to catch her first glimpse of Phil.

Their dog Meeka was quite the show stealer throughout the day, joyfully rolling in the grass and getting pets from anyone who crossed paths with her. When Deandra and her bridesmaids first saw Meeka out with the groomsmen at the Bayshore, the room quickly turned into a chorus of, “Aww, Meeka!” from everyone there. Meeka was so chill about the event and probably thought the day was just for her.

Congratulations, Deandra and Phil!

Fairfield Garden Wedding Photos [Shaylee and Dennis]

August 22nd, 2019

Shaylee and Dennis, Fairfield Garden Wedding

The threat of rain wouldn’t stop Shaylee and Dennis from having their Fairfield Garden wedding at the Lethbridge Research Centre! Ready with a bucket full of umbrellas for their guests, they were prepared to get married outside, rain or shine. Lethbridge cooperated by giving us some lazy clouds that didn’t feel like raining on their day!

From our very first meeting, Dennis and Shaylee’s outgoing, bubbly personalities were obvious. Shaylee beamed with pride that she had been the one to propose and they spoke with so much joy of how they were including their daughters in the wedding day. It was no surprise then that their wedding day was explosive with happy emotions. So many people were crying during the ceremony that it took everything in me not to join them! Shaylee and Dennis alternated wiping away each other’s tears while the sounds of sniffles resonated from their guests.

Once the ceremony was out of the way, the happy crying turned into side splitting laughter. We could barely keep up with taking candids of all the joking around and laughing between them and their wedding party. Eventually we sent everyone away for a break before the reception and focused on some quiet romantic time with the bride and groom.

Congratulations, Shaylee & Dennis!
