Galt Museum Summer Wedding Photos [Andrew & Kristen]

Andrew & Kristen, Galt Museum summer wedding photos

Andrew and Kristen planned a very classic, stylish event for their Galt Museum summer wedding photos. Most ceremonies at the Galt take place inside the museum but the couple wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous view of the coulees on the bluff outside. They had the absolute best luck that day, finishing their ceremony in the sun and all photos just before the big storm moved in.

They planned their outdoor ceremony and Galt reception close together so their guests could go straight to cocktail hour. To make the best use of our time, we met up with each part of the wedding party just before the ceremony. No one needed warming up for photos; they all had us laughing immediately!

We loved working with Kristen and Andrew for their photos. They are SUCH a gorgeous couple and looked stunning in Kristen’s high back lace dress and Andrew’s navy suit.

Congratulations, Andrew and Kristen!

Lethbridge Vintage Pinup Wedding [Tony & Kathleen]

Tony & Kathleen, Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding

As soon as Kathleen told me at our first meeting what her dress was going to look like, I was in love with their wedding! Her and Tony planned a Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding with tons of awesome alternative elements, like most of the guys sporting their mohawks. The girls wore vintage style tea length dresses from Drunken Sailor and colorful pumps to go with the red, black, and white color scheme. It’s not often you see red wedding dresses :)

It was such a beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony at Gyro Park with lots of sun and not a hint of wind. They made sure to include their three dogs in the ceremony and family photos, who were on their mostly best behavior for the day (there was just one blanket that was peed on!).

Tony and Katie’s friends were as silly as they are and so much fun to spend the day with. We even had a few extra friends follow us with their amazing classic cars (also matching the wedding color scheme), which added so much to the photos.

Congratulations, Tony & Kathleen!

Azuridge Estate Wedding Photography [Austin & Cyndy]

Cyndy & Austin, Azuridge Estate wedding photography, Calgary wedding photos

Last weekend Cam and I headed to the foothills for Austin and Cyndy’s wedding at Azuridge Estate Hotel in Priddis, just west of Calgary. This was our first time doing Azuridge Estate wedding photography and we were blown away by what an amazing location they chose for their special day. Surrounded by gorgeous views of the mountains, tall trees, floor to ceiling windows, and even a dinosaur, Azuridge was a beautiful venue.

Austin and Cyndy have been together for seven years and their wedding felt like a celebration of their relationship and families. Many family members traveled from overseas to join them, filling the event with so much happiness and excitement. It is such an honor to have photographed them so early in their relationship and again for such an important day!

The two of them are still so much in love and look at each other just like any other newlyweds would :)

Congratulations, Austin and Cyndy!

Gladstone Mountain Ranch Wedding [April & Ed]

April & Ed, Gladstone Mountain Ranch wedding

Continuing with a fantastic year of friends getting married, April and Ed’s Gladstone Mountain Ranch wedding was another very special one since they have been dating since we were in high school! (Obviously there were many jokes about how Ed likes to take his time with important decisions.)

They came back to Alberta for their very intimate wedding and chose a beautiful spot in the trees for their ceremony at the ranch. It’s such a gorgeous, peaceful location in the mountains and they couldn’t have picked a better spot! With the wedding being so intimate it gave us lots of time to spend with just the two of them for photos. After all this time they still know how to be romantic and I love seeing how comfortable they are with each other. :)

April is a very literary person so books played a huge part in the theme of their wedding, combining with natural forest touches. It was fantastic to get to work with Andrea at Elegant Weddings and Events again, who kept the day running perfectly.

Congratulations, April & Ed!

Castle Mountain Outdoor Wedding [Allen & Anna]

Anna & Allen, Castle Mountain outdoor rustic wedding

Allen and Anna had both done the traditional wedding before and wanted something special this time around! By combining their love of camping and the outdoors, having the whole party in nature, and throwing in touches of a cute redneck theme, they ended up with a unique wedding that was totally them!

They held their Castle Mountain outdoor wedding at the Syncline group campsite just minutes from the ski hill, and what a gorgeous location it was! Their ceremony took place amongst the huge trees next to the river and they had a beautiful tent sent up nearby for their reception dinner. All of their guests were able to camp right on site making it super easy for everyone to attend.

Their wedding party members were very special to them, being made up mostly of their children (including fur baby Buster as the ring bearer, who rocked a matching vest). It was such a meaningful way to signify the blending of their families.

We went off site for a few photos at the old cabin on the highway and were definitely running back when we heard growling in the bushes! ;)

Congratulations, Allen & Anna!

Castle River Summer Wedding [Tricia & Colin]

Tricia & Colin, Castle River summer wedding

While I’ve photographed the weddings of many people I’ve gone to school with, Tricia’s was a special one seeing as how we’ve been friends since grade 6! From the moment she started talking about Colin, he seemed so perfect for her and I’m glad she agreed :)

Tricia and Colin held their Castle River summer wedding in the Crowsnest Pass area, starting in Coleman where Tricia grew up and working their way over to the Lundbreck area for the ceremony and reception later in the day. The Castle River Rodeo grounds were a beautiful location to hold their celebration, from their river side ceremony to their starlit open sky reception.

We had such an amazing and fun time with them! It’s so great to be able to spend such a special day with friends. (Cam and Colin have also had lots of time to bond over the last year since the couple were guests at a number of other weddings we photographed!)

Our friend Andrea at Elegant Weddings and Events (who was also in the wedding party!) did an amazing job coordinating the whole event.

Congratulations, Colin & Tricia!
