Norland Estate Evening Wedding Portraits [Tracey & Mark]

Norland Estate evening wedding portraits

I always love when a couple will do what it takes to get the shot, even when we can see our breath! Tracey and Mark fell in love with the architecture of the Norland as soon as they saw it, so it was an important focus point for their photos. After their private ceremony, I met their family at the venue to start their Norland Estate evening wedding portraits.

Their union was a celebration of their families coming together, so they had all of their children stand in as the wedding party and focused on the kids as much as themselves when it came time for photos.

Congratulations, Tracey & Mark!

Galt Museum Late Autumn Wedding [Jacqueline & Matthew]

Thursday, November 3rd, 2022

Jacqueline & Matthew, Galt Museum late autumn wedding

Jacqueline and Matthew’s Galt Museum late autumn wedding couldn’t have fallen on a better year. The gorgeous fall we had meant they still had fall colours and (sort of) warm temperatures for their wedding day. They chose the exact date of their 10th anniversary to get married since the date was already so special to them. The couple went with a starry night theme with blues and purples, which looked beautiful with the autumn colours.

Their ceremony involved lightsabers and such a huge reaction from Matthew when he saw Jacqueline enter the aisle. So many family members couldn’t stop their happy tears, including Matthew’s grandma who I overheard several times exclaiming, “It’s just so beautiful!” Matthew’s sister performed the ceremony (and managed to just barely make it through without crying too much). Jacqueline has younger siblings so she was able to include them in the wedding party as an older flower girl and ring bearer, matching in the wedding colours. All siblings were included somehow in the ceremony!

Partway through photos, we had their dog Fenrir specially escorted to us. He was so excited to see them that we could hardly get him to sit still! Basically he had an even bigger reaction during his first look with Jacqueline than Matthew did ;)

Congratulations, Jacqueline & Matthew!

Henderson Lake Autumn Wedding Photos [Alice & Aaron]

Alice & Aaron, Henderson Lake autumn wedding photos

Alice and Aaron started their laidback day with Henderson Lake autumn wedding photos and a first look at the park. Aaron arrived in an orange Corvette belonging to Alice’s parents (which he drove very, very carefully) – a perfectly coloured car for a fall wedding!

This was my third time working with Alice’s extended family this year and I’m so honoured they have made me a part of their important moments like this. We had so much fun with this couple who kept us laughing the whole time! Within an hour we managed to crash a medieval club, almost cause a car accident (not our fault!), and witness a new record of tongues sticking out in family photos.

After photos were finished, they had their intimate ceremony in Firestone Restaurant‘s private room. It was the perfect size for their guests and a perfect match for the warm fall vibes of the day.

Congratulations, Alice & Aaron!

Vulcan Backyard Wedding Ceremony [Sacha & Daniel]

Thursday, October 6th, 2022

Sacha & Daniel, Vulcan backyard wedding ceremony

Sacha and Daniel considered getting married in the mountains, but opted to have a Vulcan backyard wedding ceremony to make sure all of their loved ones could be there. As a compromise, they brought the mountains to them! They had a large image of a mountainscape behind them during their ceremony, and the mountain theme carried through details in their cake and rings.

Their wedding day fell on their 10 year anniversary, making it an even bigger celebration. I had been looking forward to this wedding so much because I’ve been photographing their family since nearly the beginning of their relationship! With it being on September 30, incorporating orange into their wedding allowed them to honour National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and have many of the guests wearing orange shirts.

The day was a beautiful combination of autumn colours, their favourite interests, and the importance of their family, all with the intimacy that was a perfect fit in their small town.

Congratulations, Sacha and Daniel!

Lethbridge Wedding Portraits & Family Photos [Dammy & Jeff]

Lethbridge wedding portraits at Nicholas Sheran Lake

Dammy and Jeff had a private backyard elopement in Edmonton, and then saved all of their fancy photos for when they were back in Lethbridge. This made everything so laid back! We did their Lethbridge wedding portraits at Nicholas Sheran Lake where they brought along some of their wedding floral arrangements and set up a mini wedding site in the park.

Dammy’s son David was of course an integral part of their day as they enter their blended family, but we made sure he got to take lots of breaks so he wouldn’t get bored by the end ;)

After we finished with their wedding attire, the family put on more casual outfits and we headed to the High Level Bridge. Dammy wanted to have something “very Lethbridge” to celebrate her time here before she moved to Edmonton full time, and nothing says Lethbridge like the bridge!

McKillop United Church Wedding [MJ & Dan]

MJ & Dan, McKillop United Church wedding

MJ and Dan decided to get all the big things out of the way at once by having their McKillop United Church wedding at the same time they are doing a massive garage renovation! You’d never know they had so much on their plate by how happy and laid back they were throughout the wedding day. They even had the added stress of their initial ceremony location falling through, but they rolled with the situation and McKillop United wonderfully came to the rescue at the last minute.

The couple chose a classic wedding look with a monochromatic colour scheme. MJ loves bling and choose the perfect dress and shoes to show that off! We had lots of time for photos so we were able to visit both Henderson Lake and the coulees before returning to their reception at the Coast. Dan is a car guy so it was an added bonus they had extra time to cruise around in their limo!

Congratulations, MJ & Dan!
