Henderson Lake Summer Wedding Photos [Rylan & Sarah]

Rylan and Sarah, Henderson Lake summer wedding photos

After photographing Sarah and Rylan before as bridal party members, I was so excited to finally see Sarah in her own white dress!

This was a special wedding for their families as both Sarah and Rylan are the first of their siblings to get married. Each set of little sisters was especially excited to get to dress up for this fun day.

After family photos in Picture Butte, we made the drive to Lethbridge to visit Indian Battle Park and finished with Henderson Lake summer wedding photos, complete with popping their first bottle of champagne.

It was so great to get to work with their group of friends again. This was our fifth time working with some of their friends and they are always so hilarious, outgoing, and make the day so special for everyone involved. This particular day we were treated to watching ice cream battles to combat the summer heat ;)

Sarah and Rylan are so amazing together and completely adore each other. I quickly lost count of how many times Rylan would send her into uncontrollable laughter.

Congratulations, Rylan and Sarah!

Park Lake Country Engagement Session [Denise & Koos]

Park Lake country engagement session

Denise and Koos wanted country-inspired photos but loved the idea of going to the lake, so we combined them into a Park Lake country engagement session! It was such a beautiful evening at Park Lake and felt like summer was finally here :)

I couldn’t get over how sweet Denise and Koos are together. Their love was so obvious even though they are a quiet and reserved couple. You can see it in the way they embrace and the way they smile at each other. Plus, you know how crazy Koos is for Denise when he hates having his photo taken but did awesome through the session!

I can’t wait for their wedding this spring!

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!

Prairie Tractor Museum Wedding [Jocelyn & Frank]

Jocelyn and Frank, Picture Butte autumn outdoor wedding

I had one last rare Saturday opening this September and had another chance to second shoot for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jocelyn and Frank’s Prairie Tractor Museum wedding in Picture Butte. I arrived at the museum while Lorelei was still with the girls and got a few photos of the guys hanging out before the outdoor ceremony.

The Prairie Tractor and Engine Museum is such a beautiful wedding venue with the sprawling views of the coulees in the back and old fashioned buildings. We even got to pull the vintage fire truck out for a few photos!

Congratulations, Jocelyn and Frank!

Rural Alberta Extended Family Photos [Luke & Lammie]

rural Alberta extended family photos

Before one of their children moved away, Luke and Lammie wanted to get the whole family together for a big summer portrait session. Their own farm made the perfect spot for their rural Alberta extended family photos. We had no shortage of locations with their beautiful garden rows, huge trees, and nearby fields… with just a few ant colonies to watch out for ;)

All of the siblings had so much fun goofing around together and after Lammie stuck her tongue out at Luke, you could tell where the kids get it from! The little kids were absolutely adorable and loved spending time at grandma and grandpa’s house for the afternoon.

Autumn Farm Family Photos [The Perry Family]

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!
