Chinook Lake Micro Wedding [Jensen & Devin]

Jensen & Devin, Chinook Lake micro wedding

When Jensen and Devin approached me about their wedding, all they knew was that it was going to be small and that they wanted it in the Crowsnest Pass. After a few questions they decided a view of Crowsnest Mountain was essential, so I gave them a few location options and other than that they put their complete trust in me! They decided on a Chinook Lake micro wedding and followed all of my advice like the best time of day to have it.

Jensen and Devin fell in love while at work, so the inn where they stayed during shifts was a natural choice for where to get ready. They had an emotional first look there before heading to the lake. Once at the lake, they quickly threw together a guerrilla ceremony in the parking lot to take advantage of the best view of Crowsnest Mountain across the water. The sunset that night was absolutely magical and they topped things off by the girls jumping in the lake.

Congratulations, Jensen and Devin, and thank you for letting me “plan” your wedding!


Starcreek Falls Engagement Photos [Chantelle & Josh]

Starcreek Falls engagement photos

Chantelle and Josh chose a perfect golden evening for their Starcreek Falls engagement photos. The little bit of smoke haze that day gave the forest trail a magical glow and made everything feel so much more romantic! With their wedding taking place at Castle Mountain Resort, they wanted something closer to home for their engagement session. Starcreek has quickly become one of my favorite spots in the Crowsnest Pass and they were up for the adventure! The couple made it all the way to the falls in only their dress shoes. Who says you can’t hike in heels?

Crowsnest Pass Starcreek engagement photos

Meagan and Jesse planned their wedding at Castle Mountain Resort but wanted to make use of the beautiful views where they live for their engagement session. They brought their dog Ellie along for their Crowsnest Pass Starcreek engagement photos and she had a great time… mostly because of the perfectly placed creek!

After taking photos along the hike to Starcreek Falls, we headed down the highway to a special view of Crowsnest Mountain the couple had gotten access to. Meagan and Jesse dressed perfectly for the country vibes of the second location. It was so awesome to finally photograph them after doing so many photos of all their cousins!


Crowsnest Pass Wild Flower Engagement Session [Emily & Ben]

Crowsnest Pass wild flower engagement session

If you are planning a local wedding, your engagement photos are a great chance to go out on a photo adventure! Emily & Benjamin had a Crowsnest Pass wild flower engagement session in advance of their Lethbridge wedding to make use of our nearby mountain landscapes.

Emily and Ben loved the look of the field at the end of Willow Drive in Coleman, so we did all their photos there. Waterton may be known for its wild flower season, but the flowers in the Crowsnest Pass last spring were just as incredible! We got so lucky with the day we chose for their engagement session. It was just a coincidence we chose the best spot to see them. :)


Surprise Maternity Announcement Photos [Jessica & Tyler]

surprise maternity announcement photos

Jessica and Tyler wanted to announce their pregnancy to Jessica’s family in a very memorable way. These surprise maternity announcement photos were disguised as a family session with Jessica’s parents. A few friends joined at the end to supposedly help with a photo for the couple’s wedding invitations. That’s when the big reveal came!

The couple travelled to Jessica’s hometown of the Crowsnest Pass to tell her parents the big news. She made the excuse that they needed updated family photos, so we spent the first part of the session doing just that! We went to the Miner’s Path with their dogs Trip and Chloe and acted like everything was totally normal. I had to try so hard not to laugh when Jessica’s mom told me the dogs were her grandkids because that’s all Jessica was giving her!


Crowsnest Winter Engagement Photos [Ashley & Stefan]

Crowsnest winter engagement photos

Ashley and Stefan took a detour while on their way to visit family and made a special stop for Crowsnest winter engagement photos. We lucked out with a fresh snowfall just in time because even the Crowsnest Pass was looking a little brown and dry for this time of year!

The couple were involved with another wedding I’ve photographed, so it was so much fun to get to focus on them this time! They have such great energy and are so cute and snugly together.

We started with the Miner’s Path for a forest look then headed into the wind to get a mountain view. (At this point Stefan pondered why he let his hair grow long, ha ha.)

I can’t wait for their wedding!
