Lethbridge Winter Engagement Session [Micah & Steven]

Thursday, January 12th, 2023

Indian Battle Park engagement photos in the snow

Micah & Steven had a very chilly Lethbridge winter engagement session in November. With enough warm car breaks we were able to take full advantage of the winter wonderland that was the coulees that day! The snow around the river bottom looked so beautiful, and especially magical in the golden hour we lucked out with on this sunny day.

Their dog Korra came dressed in the finest formal wear a dog can have, and lasted for a little bit before the cold tippy taps started. (The couple wisely brought a dog wrangler along so Korra could hide out in the car earlier.)

The three of them make such a cute family and I’m glad the snow couldn’t stop us from having a fun outdoor photoshoot.

Congratulations, Micah & Steven!

Wintery Family Photography [Braxton, Heather & Bradly]

wintery family photography in Lethbridge

They finally got snow! For two years in a row, Braxton’s family had tried to do Christmas photos in November and it always ended up being a beautiful fall day. This year they were finally able to send out appropriately themed wintery family photography for the holidays!

We went through photos quickly so they could be without coats in the snow for as little time as possible. Braxton is always so good in front of the camera, so it’s no surprise he was able to pull out his acting skills and not show how cold he was. Snuggling Mom and Dad definitely helped!

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!

High Level Bridge Winter Family Photos [Teresa & Russ]

High Level Bridge winter family photos

Russ and Teresa’s boys took a little convincing to get them onboard for a session, but Teresa was persuasive! (When Mom really wants something, it’s best to go along with it.) Their High Level Bridge winter family photos were a little colder than they were used to… the family had just gotten back to Lethbridge from a warm vacation! Between that and the little kids, we moved fast, and the boys were probably very grateful ;)

Crowsnest Winter Engagement Photos [Ashley & Stefan]

Crowsnest winter engagement photos

Ashley and Stefan took a detour while on their way to visit family and made a special stop for Crowsnest winter engagement photos. We lucked out with a fresh snowfall just in time because even the Crowsnest Pass was looking a little brown and dry for this time of year!

The couple were involved with another wedding I’ve photographed, so it was so much fun to get to focus on them this time! They have such great energy and are so cute and snugly together.

We started with the Miner’s Path for a forest look then headed into the wind to get a mountain view. (At this point Stefan pondered why he let his hair grow long, ha ha.)

I can’t wait for their wedding!

Canadian Reformed Church Winter Wedding [Meaghan & James]

Meaghan & James, Canadian Reformed Church winter wedding

Meaghan and James made their Canadian Reformed Church winter wedding extra personal by including family members in all of the important parts of the day. James’ older brother performed their ceremony, which made it more special but also meant a few hilarious jabs at James were included. Their twin nephews did an amazing job as ring bearers, and siblings were included in their wedding party so they could spend all day together. Meaghan’s little sister may be one of the youngest maid of honours we’ve had, and she did an amazing job helping her sister!

Both of them were a little nervous excited in the morning, but that all melted away once they saw each other at the church. James absolutely lit up once Meaghan and her father came through the doors. He looked like he was fighting back exclaiming, “Wow!” out loud. :)

After weeks of little to no snow, their wedding day ended up being one of those rare days the snow came down! Meaghan and James were able to get the winter wedding they had hoped for (who would have thought February would be so warm?). Luckily the sun was also out and the bridesmaids all had shawls. We appreciate everyone freezing to get such great photos in the river bottom :)

Congratulations, Meaghan and James!
