University of Lethbridge Summer Wedding [Scott & Katie]

Scott and Katie, University of Lethbridge summer wedding photography

After knowing Scott and Katie for many years it was an honor to be a part of their University of Lethbridge summer wedding. Their wedding was such a joyous coming together of both families, with guests traveling from as far as England and Abu Dhabi to attend! This may have been the happiest wedding we have ever been to :)

Scott and Katie met while attending the U of L, so it made sense to bring their joining back there and have their ceremony at the University’s Markin Hall. It was a beautiful, bright location and the music of their sextet brass band perfectly filled the space. Scott and Katie were both music majors so music played a very important part throughout their day.

We had so much fun with them and their bridal party, who were all so positive, happy, and goofy despite the CRAZY heatwave we had to deal with.

When photos were finished, we headed to their reception at Paradise Canyon for more live music and LOTS of dancing!

Congratulations, Scott and Katie!

Summer River Bottom Family Photos [Lily, Emily & Travis]

summer river bottom family photos

The evening is a perfect time for summer river bottom family photos during a heat wave! Lily came down to Indian Battle Park in Lethbridge with her mom and dad for their family photos and had so much fun exploring the coulees. She loved running through the trails and having her parents pick her up to swing her, but probably her favorite thing of all were fake sneezes. The bigger your fake sneeze, the harder she would laugh! She even got pretty good at faking her own by the end of the session :)

Stanley Park Family Photos [Linda]

Stanley Park family photos

I met Linda waaaaay back in university and when we recently reconnected, we discussed how fun it would be to get together to update her family photos. Since her mom lives in Calgary, the timing worked out perfectly when I was passing through to make a stop in Stanley Park for their family session with her son Teagan, her mom, and Teagan’s dad.

Teagan was promised only a few serious photos and then he was able to let loose! I was pleased to find the whole family is goofy like this and made the BEST silly faces for photos (I think everyone learned from Grandma, the master of silly faces!).

Lethbridge Vintage Pinup Wedding [Tony & Kathleen]

Tony & Kathleen, Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding

As soon as Kathleen told me at our first meeting what her dress was going to look like, I was in love with their wedding! Her and Tony planned a Lethbridge vintage pinup wedding with tons of awesome alternative elements, like most of the guys sporting their mohawks. The girls wore vintage style tea length dresses from Drunken Sailor and colorful pumps to go with the red, black, and white color scheme. It’s not often you see red wedding dresses :)

It was such a beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony at Gyro Park with lots of sun and not a hint of wind. They made sure to include their three dogs in the ceremony and family photos, who were on their mostly best behavior for the day (there was just one blanket that was peed on!).

Tony and Katie’s friends were as silly as they are and so much fun to spend the day with. We even had a few extra friends follow us with their amazing classic cars (also matching the wedding color scheme), which added so much to the photos.

Congratulations, Tony & Kathleen!

Azuridge Estate Wedding Photography [Austin & Cyndy]

Cyndy & Austin, Azuridge Estate wedding photography, Calgary wedding photos

Last weekend Cam and I headed to the foothills for Austin and Cyndy’s wedding at Azuridge Estate Hotel in Priddis, just west of Calgary. This was our first time doing Azuridge Estate wedding photography and we were blown away by what an amazing location they chose for their special day. Surrounded by gorgeous views of the mountains, tall trees, floor to ceiling windows, and even a dinosaur, Azuridge was a beautiful venue.

Austin and Cyndy have been together for seven years and their wedding felt like a celebration of their relationship and families. Many family members traveled from overseas to join them, filling the event with so much happiness and excitement. It is such an honor to have photographed them so early in their relationship and again for such an important day!

The two of them are still so much in love and look at each other just like any other newlyweds would :)

Congratulations, Austin and Cyndy!

Lundbreck Falls family photos

Tammy and Kirk had all of their kids down for the long weekend and decided it was time for some updated family photos at their house near Lundbreck Falls. They have a beautiful property overlooking the mountains so we had no shortage of gorgeous backdrops! They are such a warm, welcoming family and it’s clear they have a great time with each other every moment they are together.
