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!

Waterton Spring Engagement Photos [Hillary & Kevin]

Waterton spring engagement photos

Hillary and Kevin traveled down to meet me in Waterton for some spring engagement photos and we had a glorious mix of both spring and winter! The snowfall the day before still stuck in the town despite the temperatures climbing back up, so we were able to have winter wonderland type photos with gorgeous sunshine, blue skies, and enough heat to make coats unnecessary. I even got a little sunburned! With it being off season, we had most of the town to ourselves and luckily didn’t have to worry about scaling too many large snow banks.

These two are so fantastic together. Hillary and Kevin both took turns instigating who was the goofy one (and thus making the other laugh hysterically). I am sure they have no shortage of happiness when they are near each other.

Scenic Waterton Wedding [Sean & Alison]

Alison and Sean, Scenic Waterton Wedding

So happy to go to Waterton again! Even though Sean and Alison planned a Lethbridge ceremony for their extended family and friends at their home base of Lethbridge, they made the great decision to have an intimate scenic Waterton Wedding Ceremony (our most beautiful local destination!). Their ceremony was held behind the Prince of Wales overlooking the lakes and there wasn’t even any wind to blow us away!

We had a ton of fun going around town with them for photos afterwards and they even got to try a canoe, where Sean was given a very quick lesson by the people running the rental :) This was actually my first time using Linnett Lake as a photo location, but I think from now on it needs to be a staple! (And phew, no bears!) Sean did a great job steering the thing and luckily did not capsize the thing!

It was so wonderful to see them get married after meeting them almost a year ago, and we loved how they randomly let their goofy personalities show through their calm, laid-back demeanor.

Congratulations, Sean & Alison! (more…)

Waterton Mountain Getaway Wedding [Michael & Ashley]

Ashley and Mike, Waterton Mountain Getaway Wedding

We love Waterton and were so excited to go there again for Michael and Ashley’s Waterton mountain getaway wedding. Their event was held at the beautiful Bayshore Inn, with lots of help from Louise at Perfect Day Ventures.

We had so much fun spending the day with them; we were pretty much in non-stop laughter the whole time. They (and their bridal party members) are such warm, kind people and are a complete joy to be around. :)

I definitely appreciated their commitment to the photos. Halfway through our portraits the rain storm hit, but once it let up a little and we wrapped our gear in plastic they were totally fine with going back outside and getting a little damp! We only had to cut things short once lightning was striking around us (yikes!). Luckily the clouds parted in the evening and we gave them a little break from their reception for some gorgeous evening portraits.

Congratulations, Michael & Ashley! (more…)
