Lethbridge Burnese Mountain Dog Puppy Photos [Timber]

Lethbridge Burnese Mountain Dog Puppy Photos

I’m so happy with all these puppies I got to play with this month! Timber joined me with his human mom for his Lethbridge Burnese Mountain Dog puppy photos. He’s also part Golden Retriever, but the Burnese seems to be taking over. Timber is already larger than most small breed dogs, but a tiny fraction of the final size he will become!

I could not get over how well behaved he is for a puppy. That is largely thanks to the training he is taking, but he’s also such a gentle soul. He was happy to quietly explore all the new smells at the park and dig through the grass for fun clumps of leaves to play with.

Galt Museum Ceremony and Wedding Reception [Vanessa & Robbie]

Vanessa and Robbie, Galt Museum Ceremony and Wedding Reception

Vanessa and Robbie planned an elegant Galt Museum ceremony and wedding reception on the cusp of autumn. With glimmering rose gold and soft pink accents and well tailored suits, their wedding party looked so sharp!

They started their day with a first look at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden and had their family join them there for photos. After their romantic and joyfully emotional ceremony at the Galt, we headed to the University of Lethbridge, which is where their journey together began.

The couple placed so much importance on family, including all of their siblings in the wedding party and making sure everyone close to them felt as important as they are. They were so ecstatically happy all day! Even as the pre-dinner sleepiness started to set in, they were still elated to be in each other’s presence and couldn’t stop grinning.

Congratulations, Vanessa and Robbie!

Lethbridge Spring Evening Family Photos [Marj & Earl]

Lethbridge spring evening family photos

It’s becoming a running joke between Drew, Alyssa, and myself that I’m going to have more photos of them than I know what to do with! After Alyssa’s family had their photos taken in the winter, spring was when Drew’s family had their turn. Marj and Earl have moved to BC and were down for the weekend to visit their kids.

We did their Lethbridge spring evening family photos at Aperture Lake and it was such a beautiful night. You just had to watch your step everywhere. This park has been very popular with the wild animals this spring! With careful posing we avoided any messes and found lots of space for me to force the siblings to give each other huge hugs. I think they secretly loved the chance to hug each other so much ;)

Lethbridge City Hall Spring Wedding [Erin & Taylor]

Erin and Taylor, Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding

Erin and Taylor chose the most beautiful day to have their Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding. This was the first day of spring where it truly felt like summer was on its way and the air was filled with the sweet smell of tree blossoms everywhere we went.

We arrived in time for Erin to have her “assembly line” of first looks in her parents’ back yard. Her father got to have the first first look, followed by Taylor once he arrived with his groomsmen. Erin’s dad won the award for most crying during the first look :)

After portraits at Aperture Park, they headed to City Hall for their ceremony. Edgar the Barnowl presenting their wedding rings offered a unique touch to the day! He was very well behaved during the entire ceremony.

The day had already been filled with tons of laughter, but once the reception rolled around and everyone had time to relax and visit with each other, the laughter was non-stop! We had trouble prying ourselves away from all the happy dancers even after our photo coverage was over :)

Congratulations, Erin and Taylor!

Lethbridge Winter Headshot Session in the Snow [Leslie]

Lethbridge winter headshot session

Leslie is happiest when it snows, so when her friend treated her to a headshot session as a Christmas gift, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! We planned her Lethbridge winter headshot session at the very last minute (the snow was falling that night and would melt within two days) and headed over to Aperture Park on the west side with Leslie’s favourite winter coats in tow. Leslie is a talented author and a joy to be around, so I wanted to make sure her new book portraits matched her personality.

Snowy West Lethbridge Engagement Session [Christine & Joe]

snowy west Lethbridge engagement session

Christine and Joe didn’t quite have the engagement session we were expecting! We had booked their photos many weeks in advance to take place over the February long weekend. Our plan was to drive out to the Crowsnest Pass, and we hoped there would still be some snow left. The last two Februarys have been a little dry here, so we didn’t want to get our hopes up too much! As their photography date approached, we heard tales of daily highway closures. Then it came: yet another heavy snowfall warning on our travel day! In the end, they had a very snowy west Lethbridge engagement session just as the huge snowfall began its descent.

As a substitute “forest,” we met at Aperture Park on the west side and hiked through snow that ranged from one inch to two feet deep. Christine and Joe were such amazing sports about it! Christine feels the same way about winter as I do (which is not favourably), yet they perfectly acted like everything was warm and fine. Even while being pelted by snow, they were so lost in each other. Joe couldn’t resist nuzzling into her and making them both break out in huge grins.
