Crowsnest Pass Winter Engagement Photography [Jena & Daniel]

Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photography

Jena and Daniel are getting married in Kananaskis next summer and I finally got to meet them in person for their engagement session. I love having a chance to do Crowsnest Pass winter engagement photography; the snow stays so thick all winter and the beautiful streams in the area turn such a gorgeous blue. I was thrilled when they wanted to go to Miner’s Path for the first part of their photos because it’s so pretty there this time of year. Jena was home from school for the weekend and it was a perfect time to get photos from a different season than their wedding will be. They are so ridiculously adorable… I can’t wait to see how amazing they will look when they aren’t pretending to enjoy being in freezing wind ;)

Lundbreck Falls Winter Photos [Stef & Freddie]

Lundbreck Falls winter photos

Originally Stef and Freddie were going to do some casual portraits a few days after their wedding, but then decided, “Why not change up the seasons?” We postponed to wait for the snow and instead did Lundbreck Falls winter photos and I’m so glad we did! Everything in the Pass was beautiful, frozen, and snowy, but it was still sunny and warm enough to brave a few photos without jackets.

Knowing they love outdoor adventures really opened up our scenery options! Lundbreck Falls was, of course, coated with ice everywhere from the water spray, and later we walked through knee-deep untouched snow in Hillcrest to access the beautiful hidden creek… all of this while the icy wind pelted us with snow and water! I love that they were up for everything and it was so great to see them again.

Coaldale Winter Wedding [Kyle & Annelies]

Annelies & Kyle, Coaldale winter wedding

After standing beside her friend earlier this year, it was now time for Annelies’s Coaldale winter wedding with her love Kyle!

Their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church was very special in that it was performed by Annelies’s grandfather, and even more so that she is the first of his grandchildren to get married! It added such a personal touch to be able to include their family so intimately.

Most of their details were created by people involved in the wedding, but mostly by Annelies who designed all of the paper items and created the bouquets by hand. She has so much talent and it’s not surprising she is a graphic designer.

We had the perfect winter weather for their wedding. November can be quite unpredictable, but we had a gorgeous mix of snow on the ground and enough sunshine to keep them warm when we went out for photos in Lethbridge. Their wedding party was so fun and energetic and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the lineup.

Annelies and Kyle are such a sweet and romantic couple and they really accented that feel with their styling of blush pink, wine, bow ties, and cardigans.

Congratulations, Kyle and Annelies!

outdoor Lethbridge winter maternity session

Denzele and Brook were in town for a temporary work stay while they were expecting their first baby, so we got together for an outdoor Lethbridge winter maternity session before they headed home for the baby’s arrival. Aperture Lake at the university was gorgeous the day of our session; there was no snow but everything had a crisp winter look, and a few leaves had even hung around!

These two were such a cute couple and you could feel so much passion between them; there is definitely going to be so much love in their new family and that is going to be one good looking baby ;)

Lethbridge Indoor Winter Family Photos [Shyanne & Darren]

Fun Lethbridge weddings and portrait photography

Shyanne and Darren came to visit family in Lethbridge and took the opportunity to do their indoor winter family photos during their stay, thanks to an awesome gift from Shyanne’s mom. I met up with them and their two boys, Royce and Dominic, at the University of Lethbridge. This was a very special place as it’s where Shyanne and Darren first met!

Dominic was super giggly and cuddly while Royce was full of so much happy energy; in between photos, he had a great time bouncing around on his rubber ball! Their grandma sang all kinds of songs to get Dominic’s big grins, but soon he figured out there was a catch and was a little more watchful of us ;)

Fun Calgary Engagement Photos [Jori & Shawn]

fun Calgary engagement photos

It was so great to finally meet Jori and Shawn! We’ve been doing all of their wedding planning long distance from two different cities but I was able to make the trip up for their really fun Calgary engagement photos, which happened to fall on our record breaking warm “Junuary” weekend.

At first the two of them seem a little shy, but give them a few moments together and they are openly silly and adorable together! I lost count of the number of times Shawn made Jori burst out in laughter during the photos. This session had so many fun surprises: cats, dinosaurs, and acrobatics! We started out the session in their house then wandered over to Jori’s favorite playground where she got to show off her impressive skills, which you will see below :)

I can’t wait for their wedding this summer!
