Leitch Collieries Engagement Session [Brittany & Donovan]

Leitch Collieries engagement session

I had an awesome time working with Brittany and Donovan and can’t wait to see how quirky their wedding will be! Since a mountain wedding would have been their second choice after Lethbridge, they met with me in the Crowsnest Pass for their Leitch Collieries engagement session and brought along their giant Bernese Mountain Dog, Murphy, who was on his best behavior for the whole shoot.

These two were awesome to work with and I loved that even when Brittany tried to be serious, she couldn’t resist smiling huge around Donovan. They have such a romantic feel around each other!

Lundbreck Falls Engagement Session [Cathy & Don]

Lundbreck Falls engagement session

It’s been almost a year since Cathy and Don set their 2015 wedding date and since then I’ve been super excited for the autumn mountain engagement photos we planned on doing. The date finally came and we picked such a warm, beautiful weekend. They decided on a Lundbreck Falls engagement session rather than do their photos in Lethbridge and I’m so glad they made the drive out! The leaves in Lundbreck Falls were already a gorgeous golden color and we only had a TINY bit of wind to deal with (relatively speaking for the Crowsnest Pass!).

I’ve known Cathy for many years and mostly only heard about Don, so I loved finally seeing them interact together. They are such a perfect couple and so incredibly happy together after all their years of dating. I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Crowsnest Pass Summer Family Portraits [Ava, Tennille & Jim]

Crowsnest Pass summer family portraits

Tennille and Jim met up with me just before their first anniversary to get some new Crowsnest Pass family portraits done with their cute daughter Ava and luckily the weather was much warmer than the day of their wedding, despite the fact the first snowfall of the season had just melted the day before!

Ava has grown up so much since I last photographed them and is already starting playschool… where has the time gone?? She enjoyed herself the most when she was playing peekaboo, hide and go seek, or being spun around, so every photo had to involve a game!

We first went for a little off road exploring to get gorgeous views of Crowsnest Mountain and the river, then headed to the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre to play hide and seek in the trees and rocks.

Gladstone Mountain Ranch Wedding [April & Ed]

April & Ed, Gladstone Mountain Ranch wedding

Continuing with a fantastic year of friends getting married, April and Ed’s Gladstone Mountain Ranch wedding was another very special one since they have been dating since we were in high school! (Obviously there were many jokes about how Ed likes to take his time with important decisions.)

They came back to Alberta for their very intimate wedding and chose a beautiful spot in the trees for their ceremony at the ranch. It’s such a gorgeous, peaceful location in the mountains and they couldn’t have picked a better spot! With the wedding being so intimate it gave us lots of time to spend with just the two of them for photos. After all this time they still know how to be romantic and I love seeing how comfortable they are with each other. :)

April is a very literary person so books played a huge part in the theme of their wedding, combining with natural forest touches. It was fantastic to get to work with Andrea at Elegant Weddings and Events again, who kept the day running perfectly.

Congratulations, April & Ed!

Elegant Crowsnest Pass Wedding [Jeff & Kayla]

Kayla & Jeff, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding

Kayla and Jeff had a beautiful, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding at the end of summer with so many well thought out details! The hints of pink, gold, and white throughout their day added perfect touches and I especially loved their matching balloons (a special thanks to the bridesmaids for inflating those before the ceremony!).

I love seeing how happy Kayla and Jeff are around each other and they were just as cuddly as at their winter engagement session, even though they didn’t need to keep each other warm this time!

They started their day with a ceremony at the Catholic Church in Blairmore and followed with a reception at the Coleman Sportsplex. They did a gorgeous job working their pink and gold colors into the decorations and candy/sundae bar, and you couldn’t recognize the venue as being a curling arena!

Congratulations, Kayla & Jeff!

Castle River Summer Wedding [Tricia & Colin]

Tricia & Colin, Castle River summer wedding

While I’ve photographed the weddings of many people I’ve gone to school with, Tricia’s was a special one seeing as how we’ve been friends since grade 6! From the moment she started talking about Colin, he seemed so perfect for her and I’m glad she agreed :)

Tricia and Colin held their Castle River summer wedding in the Crowsnest Pass area, starting in Coleman where Tricia grew up and working their way over to the Lundbreck area for the ceremony and reception later in the day. The Castle River Rodeo grounds were a beautiful location to hold their celebration, from their river side ceremony to their starlit open sky reception.

We had such an amazing and fun time with them! It’s so great to be able to spend such a special day with friends. (Cam and Colin have also had lots of time to bond over the last year since the couple were guests at a number of other weddings we photographed!)

Our friend Andrea at Elegant Weddings and Events (who was also in the wedding party!) did an amazing job coordinating the whole event.

Congratulations, Colin & Tricia!
