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!

Intimate Milk River Wedding [Chad & Samantha]

Samantha & Chad, intimate Milk River wedding

After already sharing so much of their life together, Chad and Samantha decided to make it official with an intimate Milk River wedding. Traveling from Calgary with their beautiful girls, they chose Milk River for its proximity to family and small town charm even though neither of them are originally from there. They ended up with a beautiful day where the big, blue rural Alberta skies opened up after weeks of rain and smoke.

They started out their day with a short ceremony at St. Paul’s United Church with only their closest family and friends in attendance. The church had a beautiful courtyard so we mainly stayed there, but had a chance to drive out a bit for views of fields and mountains.

Samantha and Chad are so sweet, which came across in every single interaction with them. They are both so bubbly and happy, it’s clear to see how they are still such a perfect match after all these years together.

Congratulations, Chad and Samantha!

Picture Butte Country-Inspired Wedding [Jeremy & Emily]

Jeremy & Emily, Picture Butte country-inspired wedding

We were thrilled to join Jeremy and Emily for the afternoon for their Picture Butte country-inspired wedding. They rocked a classic wardrobe in the beautiful rustic locations we visited.

We met up with Emily and Jeremy just after their family lunch. Jeremy’s family home was gorgeous and had amazing views of the coulees in Picture Butte, made even more dreamy with the smoke that hung in the air. The bridesmaid dresses and bouquets offered a stunning pop of color against all of the subdued tones from the smoke.

Their bridal party members all brought along their partners (some of whom were also in the bridal party) so everyone had fun as we drove around to the photo spots, especially when we reached the playground and the silliness came out.

Emily and Jeremy were so romantic around each other and so in love. When Jeremy said it was getting hard to keep smiling, we had him look at Emily and everyone exclaimed that it was easy now! ;)

Congratulations, Jeremy and Emily!

Derek & Tara-Lee, Coaldale farm wedding photos

Derek and Tara-Lee held a beautiful Coaldale farm wedding this summer, making use of some amazing country locations in the area. The rustic aesthetic was offset with classic touches of lace and soft pink.

After the girls got ready at Tara-Lee’s house (including makeup done by Tara-Lee’s sister, Karina), they headed to the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church for the ceremony. Between all the tears and Tara-Lee never being able to hold back her huge grin, there was so much happy energy there!

They both looked stunning and are always so blissful in each others presence. We had such a laid back day with them while everyone joked around and had fun at all the farms we visited.

Congratulations, Derek & Tara-Lee!

Park Lake Engagement Photos [Becky & William]

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!

Beaver Mines Couples Photography [S & K]

Beaver Mines couple photos on farm overlooking mountains

S & K invited me out to their farm for some Beaver Mines couples photography, and I was so breath-taken by their views! With paths through trees with changing leaves, views of Crowsnest Mountain, and valleys of gorgeous brush leading into distant mountains, we had no shortage of locations to use. They are such a gorgeous couple and so obviously in love; I swear their eyes actually twinkled when they looked at each other. Unfortunately their boys were away that weekend and couldn’t join in photos, but I think that made them much more romantic :) Their old dog Dixie followed us along and loved the adventure!
