best Lethbridge wedding photography of 2018

2018 was a great year! Cam and I spent so much of the year with people totally in love and the joy was contagious. These probably aren’t truly our best wedding photos from the last year, but they definitely made me smile going back through the memories!

This year we saw a bride ride a horse for the first time ever in her wedding dress, photographed through smoky skies, and laughed at far more hilarious kids than any past year. Like, so many kids let loose this year that there must have been some memo passed around at the beginning of the wedding season.

Even though I picked most of these out of my blog edits, I made it a goal to choose photos that have never been on social media! There’s a good chance you’ve never seen most of these. Unless you’re my mom – she reads and likes pretty much everything I post. (Hi, Mom!)

I hope you enjoy looking through our best wedding photos of 2018 as much as I liked choosing them!

Lethbridge City Hall Spring Wedding [Erin & Taylor]

Erin and Taylor, Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding

Erin and Taylor chose the most beautiful day to have their Lethbridge City Hall spring wedding. This was the first day of spring where it truly felt like summer was on its way and the air was filled with the sweet smell of tree blossoms everywhere we went.

We arrived in time for Erin to have her “assembly line” of first looks in her parents’ back yard. Her father got to have the first first look, followed by Taylor once he arrived with his groomsmen. Erin’s dad won the award for most crying during the first look :)

After portraits at Aperture Park, they headed to City Hall for their ceremony. Edgar the Barnowl presenting their wedding rings offered a unique touch to the day! He was very well behaved during the entire ceremony.

The day had already been filled with tons of laughter, but once the reception rolled around and everyone had time to relax and visit with each other, the laughter was non-stop! We had trouble prying ourselves away from all the happy dancers even after our photo coverage was over :)

Congratulations, Erin and Taylor!

Italian Canadian Club Spring Wedding [Andrea & Tylor]

Andrea and Tylor, Italian Canadian Club spring wedding

Weddings are so much more fun to be involved with when I have an emotional connection to the couple. Having known Andrea since grade one made working with her and Tylor that much more amazing! I love seeing how incredibly in love they are and how happy he makes her.

It was no surprise that Andrea put together such a beautiful wedding when she herself is a wedding planner (check her out at Elegant Weddings and Events!). They chose a gorgeous theme of purples and blues for their Italian Canadian Club spring wedding, accenting their wedding party in lilac while they wore blue. Andrea was so in love with her colour scheme that she wore two dresses for the wedding: a more traditional white tea cup dress for the ceremony and a beautiful floor length blue reception dress.

Their daughter Evelyn, adorned in purple lace, obviously stole the show ;)

Congratulations, Andrea and Tylor!

Sunny Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Josh & Cheryl]

Cheryl & Josh, sunny Lethbridge autumn wedding

It’s a little harsh to start your wedding day needing an EpiPen, but Cheryl and Josh are tough and had an awesome day despite the rocky beginning (plus it sure adds to the quirky memories of the day!). We had perfect weather for a sunny Lethbridge autumn wedding, with beautiful fall colors to make their vivid wedding party outfits really pop.

After the girls got ready, we headed over to the Immanuel Lutheran Church on the west side where the minister worked awesome Star Wars jokes into the ceremony. The west side had so many amazing locations this autumn that we didn’t even have to leave it until it was time to go to their reception at the Italian Canadian Club :)

There were a few wedding party crossovers from previous weddings and as usual, they were such a fun group! Cheryl and Josh are amazing in front of the camera and you can tell how madly in love they are every moment they are together.

Congratulations, Josh & Cheryl!

Rob & Rachael, Lethbridge wedding photos

Despite the blowing snow outside, Rachael and Rob had an absolutely beautiful wedding this November at the gorgeously decorated Italian Canadian Club. Everyone stayed warm inside and Rachael’s beautiful choice of decorations gave us all the backdrops we needed!

Rachael, Rob, and their two boys Stone and Odin make such a great family, and I loved how they made the boys such an important part of the day. Only Stone and flower girl Oshyn made up the bridal party, so all attention got to be on them. It was great to work with such a warm, close couple and we had so much fun (especially when they found the antlers at the hotel!).

Congratulations, Rob & Rachael! (more…)

Garry’s Birthday Party | Lethbridge Event Photography

Great Gatsby themed birthday party in Lethbridge

When Garry celebrated his 50th birthday, his friends and family threw him a wonderful themed birthday party: The Great Garry, all in Roaring 20s style! I was so impressed with the attention to detail that went into the party and that all the guests ran with the theme and dressed up. Everyone clearly had a lot of fun and I love how outgoing and joyful Garry and his wife Rita are together. Happy birthday, Garry! (more…)
