Autumn Farm Family Photos [The Perry Family]

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

autumn farm family photos

As a gift for their mom, the Perry family went with photos! Mom used her certificate for autumn farm family photos at their acreage near Chin, Alberta and our timing worked out great in that we were able to do the photos on their wedding anniversary. After photos, everyone was ready to party :)

The wind that day was insane, but incredibly the trees at their farm blocked most of it and we barely noticed a thing! They had a beautiful property with no shortage of photo locations and lots of cute critters wandering around to keep us company. The family was so giggly and cute together!

Barnwell Country Portrait Session [Tayler]

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Barnwell country portrait photography

I loved working with Tayler again this year for another Barnwell country portrait session with her and all of her adorable animals. Tayler has a huge passion for dance, but I think she’s at her most natural when she’s snuggling her cats, grooming her horses, or rounding up her energetic dogs. Her love of animals is really admirable.

I went out to her family’s place again and we found all new spots from last time for her photos. It’s so beautiful there and they have so much character with their vintage trucks and colorful barns. Tayler was gorgeous and was so easy to photograph again :)

Coleman Engagement Photos [Stephanie & Travis]

Coleman engagement photos

Stephanie and Travis are getting married in the Crowsnest Pass next year and took advantage of Coleman engagement photos while I was down for the weekend this summer. We were joined by their very well trained dogs Luka and Lucky as a trial run to see if the dogs are well behaved enough to attend the wedding; the dogs listened so well so I think they passed the test!

It was a gorgeous morning at the Miner’s Path and finally cooled off from the rain the day before. Stephanie and Travis were great in front of the camera for their first professional photos!

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!

Lethbridge Spring Engagement Photos [Kristen & Andrew]

Lethbridge spring engagement photos

Kristen and Andrew are getting married in a few months and we set out as soon as spring arrived for some casual photos. The two seem so comfortable together like best friends and I love the warmth you can feel between them. Plus they have such great smiles and were super easy to photograph!

They brought along their fur baby Hudson for their Lethbridge spring engagement photos in Indian Battle Park and we started out the session with some “family” pictures :)

I’m glad the wind made us reschedule the week before because it gave the river bottom time for the green spring buds to start coming out!

Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!
