Picture Butte Farm Wedding Photos [Jelaina & Daniel]

Jelaina & Daniel, Picture Butte farm wedding photos

I already got to work with Jelaina and Daniel briefly at her sister’s wedding last year so it was awesome to focus on them this time! Following their ceremony and lunch, we started with Picture Butte farm wedding photos at Daniel’s family’s home. They had a beautiful yard with rustic elements and it was a gorgeous day with a perfect mix of sun, clouds, and a breeze.

For their theme they chose an elegant look with soft pinks and grays. It was so classic and romantic! It felt perfect for them; the way they interact is so gentle and caring. Just moments after being silly with their friends and siblings, they can switch to these intensely romantic looks at each other :)

Congratulations, Daniel and Jelaina!

Park Lake Autumn Engagement Photos [Sheila & Ben]

Park Lake autumn engagement photos with bicycle

I met Sheila and Ben at a wedding earlier this summer and when they contacted me to arrange their own Park Lake autumn engagement photos, I easily remembered them because Sheila had given Ben piggyback rides throughout the day!

They are such a gorgeous couple and we were lucky to have one of the most photogenic evenings this fall at Park Lake when we met for their photos. The sunset was beautiful on that hot evening and Sheila brought along her cute vintage bicycle, which made an excellent prop for photos. I was happy that they were game when I suggested some barefoot beach photos in the closest thing to sand we have around here. Ben proved himself to be a bit of a blanket hog, but Sheila loves him despite that ;)

Park Lake Wedding Photos [William & Becky]

William & Becky, Park Lake wedding photos

William and Becky had a beautiful early autumn wedding around their home turf in Southern Alberta. I had already done photos with them a couple times before so I knew how fun they were before we even started. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so crazy in love. It’s been amazing to see how much more obvious their love has become since I first met them in the winter!

After getting ready in Nobleford, we headed over to the Bethel Free Reformed Church in Monarch for their ceremony and wedding service. For their portraits I was excited to finally get to go to the Lethbridge Corn Maze, which has been on my wedding photography bucket list for a while ;) Their time spent not getting lost in the maze was followed by Park Lake wedding photos. We had already done their engagement photos there but with the new autumn colors, it looked like a brand new location and worked perfectly with the yellow bridesmaid dresses.

Congratulations, Wink and Becky!

Park Lake engagement photos

I got together again with Becky and William for Park Lake engagement photos in the summer as a complement to their winter photos. We just missed the downpour when we arrived, which made everything super green and fresh looking at the lake. This time around Becky and William went for a more casual country look that was awesome at the outdoor location. In between all the laughter they share together, these two are masters at the sensual kiss for photos ;)

I can’t wait for their wedding in a couple months!

Park Lake Mermaid Portraits [Miss Marin]

park lake mermaid portraits

As a treat for Marin’s 10th birthday, she got to transform into a beautiful mermaid! Park Lake was a perfect backdrop for her mermaid portraits that evening with its gorgeous views of the water. The docks and rocks against the lake were perfect for a mermaid to come out onto land and Marin was all for climbing on everything! She had some pretty great skills in hopping around with a fin on, while her dad helped her with the more difficult terrain :)

Her mermaid tail was so fun to play around with and I’m sure she’ll get lots of use out of it this summer. It definitely deserves a few more swims!

Zombie Pinups: Karla

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I want to send a HUGE thank you to Karla for being my first zombie pinup!

The idea was first spawned many years ago by a family friend, Monique Motil (a super talented San Francisco artist), and when I found out about it I knew I had to partake!

If you are interested in being a zombie pinup, PLEASE contact me at (info at tanyaplonka.com). You must have a retro dress/undies, be able to do your own zombie makeup (I can help if you have the supplies), and not care if people stare at you!
