Weddings with Lorelei Hoffarth in Waterton [Riley & Kaitlin]

Kaitlin & Riley, Waterton wedding photography

I love going to Waterton for weddings, so it was impossible to say no when Lorelei Hoffarth asked me to help her second shoot Kaitlin and Riley’s wedding there. (Plus Lorelei is awesome to work with!)

I started out the day several hours earlier than I’m used to getting up (and survived!) to capture the guys getting ready in Lethbridge before the limo arrived, then hopped on board with them to the gorgeous national park. They had their Waterton morning ceremony on the cliffs behind the Prince of Wales Hotel and it was such a beautiful day for the wedding. Kaitlin and Riley are a gorgeous couple and judging by Riley’s emotional response to seeing her walk down the aisle, their love is so strong.

Autumn Waterton Lakes Wedding [Kevin & Ashley]

Kevin & Ashley, autumn Waterton Lakes wedding

Kevin and Ashley chose an amazing time of year for their autumn Waterton Lakes wedding; the park was nearly empty, beautiful fall colors lined the mountains, and it was still warm enough to get married outside. Even the crazy wind couldn’t spoil their perfect day! With each gust, Ashley cheered like she was on an amusement park ride because she was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.

There was so much joy throughout the day, especially at the reception. The speeches were full of laughter and they both had the hugest grins during their first dance. They are so perfect together!

They held both their ceremony and reception Waterton Lakes Lodge with photos taken throughout the town site and at Cameron Lake.

Congratulations, Kevin and Ashley!

Waterton Community Center Wedding [Garrett & Heather]

Garrett & Heather, Waterton Community Center wedding

Garrett and Heather held a summer Waterton Community Center wedding on the lawn below the mountains. It was a beautiful day for their intimate wedding and we managed to keep the day calm by avoiding all of the crowds in the park.

In the evening we returned to the Waterton Community Center for their reception, which was deliciously catered by The Great Canadian Barn Dance.

Heather and Garrett are such happy and silly people (at one point they complained how hard it was when I asked them to be serious for a photo!) that you couldn’t help but feel joyous being around them all day. They just couldn’t stop smiling! It was obvious where they inherit these traits from… everyone in their families was so warm and inviting and had great senses of humor.

Congratulations, Garrett & Heather!

Summer Waterton Mountain Wedding [Ryan & Jennifer]

Ryan & Jen, summer Waterton mountain wedding

Ryan and Jen had a summer Waterton mountain wedding, which is always one of our favorite places to visit! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Waterton Community Center, with their ceremony taking place on the lawn outside overlooking the gorgeous mountains that surround the townsite.

They were hilarious with their wedding party, and Ryan was especially all about jumping into silly poses. We are very grateful to them that they handled the wind so well seeing as how the prettiest places were the ones where the wind could almost knock you down that day!

Congratulations, Ryan and Jen!

Waterton Family Photos [Chelsea & Brendon]

Waterton family photos

When Chelsea contacted me to do Waterton family photos, I was so excited! I’m normally only there for weddings when we have a tight schedule, but for family portraits we could take our time and explore as much as needed. Her and Brendon, along with their sweet children Alexis and Liam (some of the most well behaved kids I’ve ever met!), met with me one summer afternoon and enjoyed the beautiful day with me.

It was such a gorgeous day in Waterton… sunny but not too hot, and all the colors were so vibrant, especially in the wildflowers that were in bloom. We went on a few mini hikes exploring the park and the kids got to have a fun wagon ride to get there.

Waterton Indian Wedding [Shreyo & Lorianne]

Shreyo & Lorianne, Waterton Indian wedding

Shreyo and Lorianne (whom you might remember from their zombie engagement photos) are big video game fans, so of course Cam and I got along amazingly with them! Alongside all the cute Nintendo details in their day, their Waterton Indian wedding at the Bayshore Inn honored Shreyo’s heritage and was followed by a Western ceremony.

Every part of the day was performed by people close to them, from Shreyo’s family carrying out the Indian ceremony at the start of the day to Lorianne’s cousin and sister-in-law performing the first dance song. Every little bit of their wedding felt so personal.

Congratulations, Shreyo & Lorianne!
