Henderson Lake Morning Family Portraits [Twyla & Frederick]

Henderson Lake morning family portraits

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of vibrant colours, so of course I love how Twyla and Frederick coordinated their outfits for their Henderson Lake morning family portraits. Their red and blue colour scheme looked so great with the vivid summer colours at the lake!

Their youngest, Tarick, had a blast at the session. It was obvious from the very beginning how much he adores his older siblings, so being able to run around the park with them was the best! (Though not quite as amazing and being swing around by his dad.)

Galt Museum Late Autumn Wedding [Jacqueline & Matthew]

Jacqueline & Matthew, Galt Museum late autumn wedding

Jacqueline and Matthew’s Galt Museum late autumn wedding couldn’t have fallen on a better year. The gorgeous fall we had meant they still had fall colours and (sort of) warm temperatures for their wedding day. They chose the exact date of their 10th anniversary to get married since the date was already so special to them. The couple went with a starry night theme with blues and purples, which looked beautiful with the autumn colours.

Their ceremony involved lightsabers and such a huge reaction from Matthew when he saw Jacqueline enter the aisle. So many family members couldn’t stop their happy tears, including Matthew’s grandma who I overheard several times exclaiming, “It’s just so beautiful!” Matthew’s sister performed the ceremony (and managed to just barely make it through without crying too much). Jacqueline has younger siblings so she was able to include them in the wedding party as an older flower girl and ring bearer, matching in the wedding colours. All siblings were included somehow in the ceremony!

Partway through photos, we had their dog Fenrir specially escorted to us. He was so excited to see them that we could hardly get him to sit still! Basically he had an even bigger reaction during his first look with Jacqueline than Matthew did ;)

Congratulations, Jacqueline & Matthew!

Henderson Lake Autumn Wedding Photos [Alice & Aaron]

Alice & Aaron, Henderson Lake autumn wedding photos

Alice and Aaron started their laidback day with Henderson Lake autumn wedding photos and a first look at the park. Aaron arrived in an orange Corvette belonging to Alice’s parents (which he drove very, very carefully) – a perfectly coloured car for a fall wedding!

This was my third time working with Alice’s extended family this year and I’m so honoured they have made me a part of their important moments like this. We had so much fun with this couple who kept us laughing the whole time! Within an hour we managed to crash a medieval club, almost cause a car accident (not our fault!), and witness a new record of tongues sticking out in family photos.

After photos were finished, they had their intimate ceremony in Firestone Restaurant‘s private room. It was the perfect size for their guests and a perfect match for the warm fall vibes of the day.

Congratulations, Alice & Aaron!

McKillop United Church Wedding [MJ & Dan]

MJ & Dan, McKillop United Church wedding

MJ and Dan decided to get all the big things out of the way at once by having their McKillop United Church wedding at the same time they are doing a massive garage renovation! You’d never know they had so much on their plate by how happy and laid back they were throughout the wedding day. They even had the added stress of their initial ceremony location falling through, but they rolled with the situation and McKillop United wonderfully came to the rescue at the last minute.

The couple chose a classic wedding look with a monochromatic colour scheme. MJ loves bling and choose the perfect dress and shoes to show that off! We had lots of time for photos so we were able to visit both Henderson Lake and the coulees before returning to their reception at the Coast. Dan is a car guy so it was an added bonus they had extra time to cruise around in their limo!

Congratulations, MJ & Dan!

2022 Lethbridge MS Walk

2022 Lethbridge MS Walk at Henderson Lake

The Lethbridge MS Walk, held by the Lethbridge MS Society, was finally back after a two year hiatus due to COVID. This was my sixth year photographing the walk and it was great to see so many familiar faces after such a long break in the event. While they planned for a smaller crowd, the turnout was still fantastic! It’s almost like the weather knew it was a big deal for the walk to be back… all of the rain forecast for that day held off, making this one of the nicest days the walk has seen.

There was so much energy at the walk this year. People were so happy to see each other! The lead in to the event was filled with so many reunion hugs, and the warm-up before walking had way more excited participation than usual.

Like the last few years, the walk was held at Henderson Lake and followed the usual route. I wasn’t able to get transported around in a golf cart this year, so I doubled back on the route once everyone started and caught people as they returned, with beautiful views of the lake beside them.

Henderson Lake Family Grad Photos [Hunter]

Henderson Lake family grad photos

Why not make your graduation a family affair? Hunter celebrated with everyone for his Henderson Lake family grad photos. Instead of only focusing on photos of himself, his parents and sister also joined in. Since his family was all visiting for his drive in graduation ceremony, his grandfather, uncle, and aunt all decided to come along for photos too! This put a little less pressure on him since he doesn’t like having his photo taken too much ;)

Hunter was able to borrow the blue graduation gown from his high school so we could show off this huge milestone in his photos, but we also did some more casual photos without it. It was awesome to see him at this huge accomplishment after a few years of family photos.

Congratulations, Hunter!
