Pavan Park Carnival Wedding [Cayley & Kyle]

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Kyle and Cayley, Lethbridge Pavan Park carnival wedding

Cayley and Kyle put so much thought and hard work into planning a Pavan Park carnival wedding, and they really went all out! John Martin Recreation Area in Pavan Park was the perfect location for their carnival when it was already equipped with a playground, horseshoe pits, and a volleyball court. All they had to do was bring a few more games to complete the fair grounds. In addition to the games, they had face painting, fun props for photos, and carnival themed food like popcorn, cotton candy, and hot dogs.

They included so many other personal details throughout the day. The cake and cupcakes were made by family members, while Cayley and her friends made all of the flowers themselves out of paper, some of which came from books belonging to Cayley’s grandmother.

After all that hard work, they were able to let loose and have so much fun! Despite the on-again, off-again rain, everyone was so happy and full of excitement throughout the day. The wedding party loved being in front of the camera. Cayley and Kyle have really found kindred spirits in each other with their playful, youthful personalities. It was so much fun to finish off the day with their wedding mosh pit!

Congratulations, Cayley and Kyle!

Barnwell Country Portrait Session [Tayler]

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 :)

New Dayton Farm Engagement Photos [Lanna & Mike]

New Dayton farm engagement photos

I love when couples choose locations that are very personal to them, and for Mike and Lanna’s New Dayton farm engagement photos, they choose their own farm! After driving through a herd of fuzzy cattle, their hilltop home is surrounded by old trees, gorgeous dirt roads, and well-manicured flowers, while nearby are huge ponds and vintage trucks. We definitely had no shortage of locations to use!

Both Lanna and Mike have such great senses of humor and were so fun to spend the evening with. Lanna is especially bubbly and giggled through the whole session, making them very easy to photograph :)

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!

West Lethbridge Outdoor Newborn Session [Midnight]

West Lethbridge outdoor newborn session

Considering what a dry year it’s been, it was shocking how many times we needed to reschedule these photos because of rain! I finally got to see baby Midnight and meet up again with Danny, Sacha, Rainy, and Jayden for his West Lethbridge outdoor newborn session. We went to the university’s Aperture Park again so we could recreate a few of their maternity family photos with Midnight this time. To show the transition they cleverly chose the same wardrobe as last time :)

Midnight already has a gorgeous full head of hair and was super laid back during his first photos, only fussing at the end when he got fed up of not getting milk while being snuggled.

Downtown Lethbridge Engagement Photos [Andrea & Graham]

downtown Lethbridge engagement photos

I had a great time working with Andrea and Graham for their downtown Lethbridge engagement photos, especially because we made the bold decision to include their cat Henry in a few photos. I had already met Henry a few times when I photographed him for the Lethbridge PAW Society, and for their session he was at his most dapper in his blue bow tie! Seeing as how you can’t really tell cats what to do, he was a great little model, even if he was a little distracted by the birds ;)

After he was safe at home, I headed downtown to City Hall with Andrea and Graham and I am grateful they climbed on fountains and in trees for me! They were amazing models and I can’t wait for their wedding this autumn.
