Nicholas Sheran Family Engagement Photos [Kelsey & Aaron]

Nicholas Sheran family engagement photos

When Kelsey and Aaron got engaged, they wanted to celebrate with family as soon as possible! The couple from Ontario booked a trip to Alberta at the very end of summer to visit Kelsey’s father’s side of the family. They decided to celebrate their mini family reunion with a portrait session at Nicholas Sheran Lake in Lethbridge.

Kelsey was so excited to see her grandparents again! These photos were a big deal since her grandmother is usually behind the camera taking photos of the rest of the family. They finally got to get her in the photos!

We took the opportunity to spend half of the session on family photos and half on engagement photos of the couple. Kelsey loves being around water, so Nicholas Sheran was the perfect location for them.

Coaldale Farm Engagement Photos [Skye & Dave]

Coaldale farm engagement photos

Skye and Dave are getting married at their farm next month, and decided to give it a test run by doing their engagement photos there first! They did their Coaldale farm engagement photos with the help of their energetic dogs Kip and Kyra. It is honestly pretty funny how clingy the dogs were! They took serious bribery to get them out of the photos.

There were so many beautiful spots on the farm that we’ll have no shortage on the wedding day! Skye and Dave are super sweet together and both have such happy personalities. Any serious moments we tried for didn’t last very long before turning into big smiles again. :)

Pavan Park Golden Hour Engagement Photos [Erin & Jean]

Pavan Park golden hour engagement photos

I’ll be travelling out of Lethbridge for Erin and Jean’s wedding, but for now they came to Lethbridge for their stunning Pavan Park golden hour engagement photos. Erin and Jean wanted a country feel for their engagement photos to match their upcoming wedding, and I love the horse trails in Pavan Park for that vibe. The day they picked was so perfect in the river bottom. The entire park was already full of rich golden tones despite it being so early in autumn.

Erin and Jean have a beautiful quiet calmness with each other. They are both such sweet people, and I can’t wait to spend their wedding day with them!

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!

Chinook Lake Engagement Photos [Rebecca & Aaron]

Chinook Lake engagement photos in the Crowsnest Pass

Rebecca and Aaron’s original wedding was supposed to be in the mountains, but needing to change their date due to COVID convinced them to get married more locally to Lethbridge. Their engagement photos were a perfect excuse to still get some mountain landscapes in! We decided on Chinook Lake engagement photos in the early summer, which let us beat the vacation crowds at the lake while getting the lush forest look.

This session made me look forward to their wedding even more. They constantly make each other laugh, and they made me laugh a lot too! I love a couple who don’t take themselves too seriously. If the pandemic was a test of how well couples got along with working from home and seeing so much more of each other, Rebecca and Aaron passed with flying colours ;)

Winter Light Festival Proposal at Nikka Yuko [Joshua & Makayla]

Winter Light Festival proposal at Nikka Yuko

I was so excited when Joshua contacted me that he wanted to do a Winter Light Festival proposal for his girlfriend Makayla. Our original plan was for me to creep in the bushes, but once Makayla started dropping hints that she’d love professional photos for Christmas, Joshua and I had a much easier plan to work with!

I met up with them just outside of Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden so we could do the proposal in the lit entrance way and then head inside for the rest of their engagement photos. We almost hit a snag with how super busy the garden was that night. Not only would privacy be impossible, but there was barely room to even pose in the spot we had planned! Somehow, just as it was time, the crowd disappeared and everything went perfectly. According to Makayla, the proposal was not a surprise at all ;)

We had the most perfect night that had snow on the ground, was warm enough, and not at all windy. Makayla and Joshua were constantly congratulated by the other guests, and everyone was so awesome for making sure we had uninterrupted space for photos. They were so much fun and had me laughing all night! Even one of the staff members commented on how much he loved their vibe!
