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!

Indian Battle Fall Family Photos [Mary & John]

Indian Battle fall family photos

Mary and John came to Lethbridge over Thanksgiving weekend to visit their kids, Kendra and Cameron, and took some time out of their schedule to get some updated Indian Battle fall family photos. The leaves were such an amazing color that weekend with rare splashes of orange everywhere. They brought along their senior dog O.D. who was so full of personality despite his hearing and vision problems. He must have known how to smile at the camera even when he couldn’t hear me!

This family was hilarious and joked their way through the whole session. It’s good they are such positive people because we had a bit of trouble with the rain… every so often, despite it being a beautiful day, we’d be hit with pouring rain and even a little hail! We had to run for cover a couple times during our session (including a 10 minute car break when it got really bad!) but luckily it passed every time and we could keep going.

Thanks for braving the rain with me, guys! ;)

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. :)

sugar skull, Dia de los Muertos photos in Lethbridge

As a personal project before Halloween, I recruited model Tuezday Kabel & makeup artist Jill Renner for a Día de los Muertos themed photoshoot with sugar skull face painting. These ladies rocked it! We coordinated the skull paint with the autumn colors outside and found the most colorful splashes we could in Indian Battle Park.

Early Spring Coulee Portraits [Jenae & Derrick]

Early spring coulee portraits with dogs

Jenae and Derrick brought along their gorgeous blonde dogs for some early spring coulee portraits this April in Indian Battle Park here in Lethbridge. It took two tries… our first scheduled day saw rain and we decided to postpone, so of course that meant the rain totally cleared up in time for when the photos would have been! It was all for the best though because we did early evening portraits instead and the light was absolutely beautiful. All of the golden colors of the sun and grass perfectly complimented Jenae’s long blonde hair and, of course, the fur of their golden retrievers!

Derrick and Jenae are so sweet together and are a really laid back couple. You can tell it’s not just in front of the camera because their dogs Ayisha and Nala also radiate this calmness. It was so easy taking their photos! :)

Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Amelia & Abram]

Amelia & Abram, Lethbridge spring wedding

Amelia and Abram chose early May for their Lethbridge spring wedding and we had a beautiful day with sunshine and all of the new leaves starting to peak out.

One really fun part about the day is that we did the photos in reverse order, starting with their reception details. Amelia and Abram chose to do their personal portraits before anything else and it worked out hugely in our favor since the early afternoon was beautiful and sunny but it was pouring when we left the church after their ceremony! (I won’t even get into the stupid snow that happened after that.) They couldn’t have timed it better :)

I mentioned before how Abram hates having his photo taken, but you could tell he was so smitten by Amelia because he was grinning all day… he probably forget we were taking his photo ;) Amelia was full of huge laughter around him and their families, and she looked so stunning.

They chose the Lethbridge Lodge as their main location both for getting ready and their reception, so it was a natural fit to do many of the portraits there as well. After photos were finished, we headed over to the beautiful Nobleford Christian Reformed Church for their sweet and thoughtful ceremony.

Congratulations, Amelia & Abram!
