Coaldale Winter Wedding [Kyle & Annelies]

Annelies & Kyle, Coaldale winter wedding

After standing beside her friend earlier this year, it was now time for Annelies’s Coaldale winter wedding with her love Kyle!

Their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church was very special in that it was performed by Annelies’s grandfather, and even more so that she is the first of his grandchildren to get married! It added such a personal touch to be able to include their family so intimately.

Most of their details were created by people involved in the wedding, but mostly by Annelies who designed all of the paper items and created the bouquets by hand. She has so much talent and it’s not surprising she is a graphic designer.

We had the perfect winter weather for their wedding. November can be quite unpredictable, but we had a gorgeous mix of snow on the ground and enough sunshine to keep them warm when we went out for photos in Lethbridge. Their wedding party was so fun and energetic and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the lineup.

Annelies and Kyle are such a sweet and romantic couple and they really accented that feel with their styling of blush pink, wine, bow ties, and cardigans.

Congratulations, Kyle and Annelies!

Indian Battle Park Summer Family Session [Vince & Brenda]

Indian Battle Park summer family session

I met up with Vince and Brenda for their very first Indian Battle Park summer family session, a great way to celebrate the arrival of the (fairly) recent addition to their family! The girls are already such great sisters and it was so adorable to see their smiles every time they sat together (at least until hair was being tugged on).

The Lethbridge coulees were like a lush green jungle when we went there and it couldn’t have looked prettier.

p.s. Sure his smiles on command are great, but I think their Chihuahua is extra cute just because his name is Michael Jackson :)

Beautiful Lethbridge Violin Portraits [Julianna]

Lethbridge violin portraits

It comes as no surprise with my passion for music that I love photographing musicians with their instruments! Julianna was prepping for her graduation recital and needed some photos with her violin, so we headed down to the river bottom in Lethbridge to capture some violin portraits. Her mom was also pretty excited to get some new photos of her daughter! ;)

Julianna was so photogenic (look at that smile!) and chose great outfits to fit with the golden early spring colors in Indian Battle Park. The subdued colors really accented the richness of the violin’s wood!

Lethbridge Graduation Photos [Chantal Graduates!]

Lethbridge graduation photos, girl with balloons

Chantal finished her nursing diploma and wanted to celebrate with some super fun photos with her family on her convocation weekend, so we headed out to Indian Battle Park for her Lethbridge graduation photos. The only problem was that the wind that day had insane gusts and Lethbridge was covered in a giant dust cloud! Aside from some intense balloon wrangling and averting our faces the few times we were pelted with rocks, I think we excellently pulled through! Chantal had some adorable motion in her hair (though Chantal is always adorable!) and the balloon situation gave us a LOT to laugh about. :)

Congratulations on your convocation, Chantal! (more…)

Spring Coulee Family Photos [Susan & Craig]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography

For her parents’ 50th anniversary, each of Susan’s siblings were having a special family portrait session done on their “home turf.” We wanted something that screamed “Lethbridge” for Susan’s family and the coulees, Indian Battle Park, and High Level Bridge were a perfect fit to capture the feel of Lethbridge! Her, Craig, and their three energetic girls joined me just as spring started to make its arrival. After all of the rain, the grass was popping with green and the first tree buds were starting to appear.

This family is so wonderful and fun to watch! They are all so happy together and constantly joking and laughing, and I loved how adventurous the girls were, whether it meant climbing on the bridge trellises or on mom and dad!

River Bottom Autumn Engagement Photos [Juliane & Mathias]

river bottom autumn engagement photos

Juliane is currently studying in Lethbridge after coming all the way from Germany and had a special visit from her fiancée Mathias for a few days to check out Southern Alberta. They took advantage of his visit to sneak in some pictures and we headed to Indian Battle Park for their river bottom autumn engagement photos. Juliane wanted a background that was defining of her stay in Lethbridge so the high level bridge and coulees were a perfect fit! Even though the leaves were gone, the grass had such gorgeous golden colors.

The two were so happy to finally be together again that I felt a little bad to steal away a bit of their alone time! I’m sure they can’t wait till this semester is over so they can get ready for their wedding in Germany next year. :)
