Young Boy Birthday Portraits in Lethbridge [Stefan]

young boy birthday portraits in Lethbridge

One of my favourite annual traditions is photographing Stefan each year around his birthday, and now that he’s getting more tolerant of the cold weather (though not that cold for December!) we got to do most of the photos outdoors at the University’s lake this time around. That being said, his mom and I were still pretty cold. ;) Stefan’s jumping, sliding, and running around definitely contributed to keeping him warm!

His personality has really opened up this year, going from being quiet and a little shy (though always rocking silly face photos) to telling me all kinds of stories and being totally up for jumping in the air as many times as I requested. His mom and dad joined him for a few photos this time too!

Lethbridge University Lake Couple’s Session [Davina & Jonathan]

Lethbridge University Lake couple's session

Davina and Jonathan chose an almost summer-like day for their Lethbridge University Lake couple’s session in the late autumn. We hardly even had wind! This was a great thing as Davina has recently moved to Lethbridge from out of province and is still adjusting to our “breezes” we regularly get here ;)

While Davina has relocated here for work, her boyfriend Jonathan is still back home and he came to Lethbridge for a special visit with her. I really appreciate them taking a moment out of such an important week for a few photos! They brought along their adorable dog Lyndee, who has the cutest ears with curly hair. Lyndee loved sniffing around at the university but was easy to distract when we gave her bag of biscuits a good shake!

University of Lethbridge Graduation Photos [Michelle]

University of Lethbridge graduation photos

I started out the U of L grad week with the lovely Michelle who was celebrating her newly acquired degree! Michelle and her family came back to the city for her convocation and University of Lethbridge graduation photos. To avoid being rushed we did her session the night before grad, which I think was a fantastic move as convocation day is so crazy! Her mom and dad (mostly dad) tried their best to embarrass her during the photos but Michelle would have none of that ;) After her cap and gown photos around the university campus, we headed over to Aperture Park for more casual portraits. The rain tried to threaten us but instead we had a beautiful evening!

University of Lethbridge Convocation Photos [Bert]

University of Lethbridge convocation photos

I met up with Bert, his wife Geraldine, and their five beautiful children for his University of Lethbridge convocation photos immediately after his graduation ceremony finished. Bert’s family was buzzing with excitement over his accomplishment, and his sisters were so excited they couldn’t stop hugging him! To celebrate his achievement, we wandered around the U of L campus that afternoon for family portraits. It was such a beautiful day, though that’s not the kind of day you want to be wearing a heavy black robe ;)

Coast Hotel Indoor Lethbridge Wedding [Lane & Kani]

Lane & Kani, Coast Hotel indoor Lethbridge wedding

When Lane and Kani booked their Coast Hotel indoor Lethbridge wedding, they had no idea how lucky they’d be to have a roof over their ceremony! If the amount of rain that day was any indication, they will have an exceptionally lucky and happy marriage :)

The couple chose a number of western elements for their wedding theme, from Lane’s western formal wear with bolo tie to Kani’s gorgeous lacy high neckline on her dress. The rustic wood doors they had as a backdrop for their ceremony looked amazing re-purposed behind their head table later on, while the artwork in the Coast Lethbridge Hotel lobby perfectly complemented the rest of the theme. We may not have been able to go outside in the cold to find the autumn colors, but the lobby conveniently had them all right there for us!

Kani and Lane really focused on family for their wedding with both of their children playing important roles. They were truly meant to find each other and have found a perfect match.

Congratulations, Lane and Kani!

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!
