Star Creek Falls Wedding Photos in the Crowsnest Pass [Tara & Marisa]

Tara & Marisa, Star Creek Falls Wedding Photos

Marisa and Tara got engaged while on a mountain climb (while Marisa was injured, no less!) and make frequent trips to go explore the mountains with their three dogs. They combined their love of outdoor adventures with Tara’s hometown to have an intimate mountain themed wedding. The couple wanted to do Star Creek Falls wedding photos prior to their ceremony, so we met up with them in Coleman for a mini hiking adventure.

Tara has tons of experience walking out onto ice rinks in heels after hockey games, so a little hike to Star Creek Falls with Marisa was pretty easy in comparison. Yes, she wore her heels the whole way, even over logs and wet rocks! We were thrilled that they were up for going all the way to the base of Star Creek Falls, which is incredible for photos.

After portraits, we journeyed to the other end of the Crowsnest Pass. Their ceremony was held outdoors at Tara’s parents’ place where we were joined by their friends and family. This was such a fun event! There were so many happy tears during their personal vows, and once the reception started, everyone there could not stop smiling. Tara and Marisa have such an amazing relationship, and everyone near to them shares in that joy.

Congratulations, Tara & Marisa!

Vivid Fall Family Session in Lethbridge [Nicole & Cody]

vivid fall family session in Lethbridge

Nicole and Cody had such a vivid fall family session with how amazing the colours were last autumn! Their photography session in Indian Battle Park allowed us to escape the wind and make use of the golden tones in the river bottom.

I had already photographed Nicole and her daughter on the fun mothers-daughters New York trip we went on, but this time the guys (including dog Coco) got to be included. I’m not sure they were as excited about it, but they did good for following Mom’s wishes for family photos!

Coco and the kids climbed whatever they could and were super excited to be out on our photo adventure. Nicole was happy to learn how easily I caught all the moments between the chaos ;)

Pincher Creek Wedding Photography [Dixie & Trevor]

Dixie & Trevor, Pincher Creek wedding photography

Dixie and Trevor had to practice the ultimate in patience for their Pincher Creek wedding. After postponing their initial date due to COVID, Dixie spent weeks trying to find the right date that worked with all her vendors, and then postponing one more time when restrictions didn’t look in their favour. Once she finally had everything ready to go, she learned there was a rodeo taking place the same day where their ceremony was supposed to be held! Luckily the couple have a loving community that rallies around them. Friends and family helped take over to relieve Dixie’s stress and their wedding came together beautifully.

They were still able to have the outdoor ceremony they planned for in the yard of Creekside Community Church, married by someone dear to Dixie’s family. The rodeo hadn’t encroached too much on their original location so we were still able to do their family photos as planned behind the Pincher Creek Community Hall. Everyone out enjoying the creek that day was so accommodating for us for photos!

Their reception that night continued the feel of the rest of the day: full of laughter, their friends and family having an amazing time, and the couple totally surrounded by love. We took so many photos that day because Dixie and Trevor rarely quit laughing!

Congratulations, Dixie and Trevor!

Mom and Sons Photos at Nicholas Sheran Park

Ligia is an amazing mom to these three boys! She tries to regularly update their mom and sons photos as the boys grow older. This year was an especially great snapshot of growing up as her middle son is in the missing front teeth phase of childhood!

We met up for photos at Nicholas Sheran Park at the end of summer. The boys had so much fun with each other and their adorable chihuahua!

Lethbridge Newborn Photography [Jaxson & His Parents]

Lethbridge newborn photography

I’m so grateful for families who take me along on the journey as their family grows. It’s been amazing watching Lindsay and Terry go from their engagement to welcoming Jaxson home. Aside from some perfectly normal fatigue from him keeping them up all night, the two of them are so completely in love with their baby. I got to meet him for his Lethbridge newborn photography session, which must have been a pretty exciting day for him seeing as how he didn’t sleep at all through the session! Any sleeping photos are completely fake moments where he relaxed and rested his eyes for a moment ;)

Lethbridge spring blossom mini session

The spring blossoms in Lethbridge in 2020 were amazing, and I think we may have had the nicest May long weekend ever! Piper’s family took advantage of this perfect spring and their extra time together during quarantine for a spring blossom mini session. We found tons of beautiful pink flowers only a block from their house. They walked over with their dog Poppy for their cute family session.
