When Melissa met Steve – Wainwright Wedding Photography

September 22, 2018 – Totally not a day that Melissa and Steve expected to wake up to fall coloured leaves covered with that cold white stuff we relate to winter… But they did and it was PERFECT. The colours were beautiful and so incredibly unique! It was certainly chilly – but Melissa and Steve’s wedding party was a group of troopers.

Congratulations!! 2018-10-16_00012018-10-16_00022018-10-16_00032018-10-16_00042018-10-16_00052018-10-16_00062018-10-16_00072018-10-16_00082018-10-16_00092018-10-16_00102018-10-16_00112018-10-16_00122018-10-16_00132018-10-16_00142018-10-16_00152018-10-16_0016

When Greg met Heidi – Bashaw Wedding Photography

The wedding of Heidi and Greg took me back to my hometown of Bashaw, AB! Being part of Heidi’s wedding day was beyond exciting for me as Heidi happens to be amoung the first people I met when I was born! We spent hours upon hours of our toddler life hanging out together and the opportunity to photograph such a magical day in Heidi’s life was spectacular.

The details of their day were fantastic and so well put together –  including Heidi’s dress – which she made herself using her mom’s wedding dress! Can you say talented?! And then their was their amazing bridal party! They were a blast to hang out with (they made me feel like part of the family) and an absolute riot on the dance floor! ❤

This was my last wedding of the 2015 season and as I post this blog I am grinning from ear to ear thinking about what an amazing year of beautiful couples and great opportunities I was given. Thank you so much to each an every couple who had me capture these special moments for you.

When Justin met Carmen – Pigeon Lake Wedding Photography

Carmen and Justin’s ceremony location was an absolute dream! Their guests were brought in by horse and carriage to the most beautiful open field with the gorgeous autumn colours in every direction. Some wicked storm clouds also added to the backdrop – thankfully the storm stayed away until a few moments after the ceremony and everyone stayed ‘mostly’ dry! This bridal party was a team of troopers – nobody let the rain or hail put a damper on this wonderful day!

The Aalbers – Wainwright Family Photography

When I met up with the Aalbers for their family sessions I felt like I already knew the kids from their sports sessions over the years. This was one of those sessions filled with lots of laughter – such a fun family! 2015-11-14_00072015-11-14_00062015-11-14_00052015-11-14_00082015-11-14_00042015-11-14_0003

The Welch Family – Wainwright Family Photography

One last blog post for tonight!

This was the last family session of the season and it was such a great session. The fall leaves were still perfect and the family was so much fun to work with! I think this fall was the most beautiful fall I have seen as a photographer and I really wish it could have lasted a whole lot longer! 2015-11-10_0053 2015-11-10_0054 2015-11-10_0055 2015-11-10_0056 2015-11-10_0057 2015-11-10_0058 2015-11-10_0059

The Tipler Family – Wainwright Family Photography

I met the Tipler family for the first time 3 years ago for a family session. I am always so excited about getting to document families as they are growing up and I was thrilled when Sheryl called me to book in for an updated session. These three youngsters have all grown up so much in those three years! 2015-11-10_0045 2015-11-10_0046 2015-11-10_0047 2015-11-10_0048 2015-11-10_0049 2015-11-10_0050 2015-11-10_0051 2015-11-10_0052

Caitlyn & Daryl – Wainwright Engagement Photography

Caitlyn and Daryl are getting married this weekend! The year has flown by since their engagement session last September and it is hard to believe that this day is already here! 2015-09-16_0001 2015-09-16_0002 2015-09-16_0003 2015-09-16_0004 2015-09-16_0005 2015-09-16_0006 2015-09-16_0007

Autumn – Stettler Graduation Portraits

My cousin’s beautiful girlfriend graduated from William E. Hay High School in Stettler back in May. It was a pleasure to hang out with Autumn and her family throughout the day.

I hope you have had the absolute most amazing first week of university! You are going to rock this year! 2015-09-10_0023 2015-09-10_0029 2015-09-10_0025 2015-09-10_0026 2015-09-10_0027

When Quinn Met Rachelle – Wainwright Wedding Photography

Quinn and Rachelle became Mr. & Mrs. on October 4 and had a bridal party full of smiles and laughter – and a very large wedding party at that! My dad and I had a blast hanging out with this group during their formal photos.


I started the day out with Rachelle and all of her beautiful ladies at Divine Hair Salon to get ready for the ceremony at the Catholic Church.




Then we ventured over to my newest favorite location in town for family and bridal party photos. All of the photos went smoothly and quite quickly so the bridal party even had a chance to enjoy a quick stop at the Taphouse before heading over to the reception!








I think this photo here is my favourite from the day. Such a wonderful couple!



Thank-you for having me be part of your day Mr. & Mrs McBride!!

The K Family – Wainwright Family Portraits

It has been a very busy fall with lots of great families having me join them for sessions. The K family and I got together a few weeks ago to update their portraits – and the little ones totally hammed it up for the camera. These two girls were not shy for a single moment.

Like I said… They hammed it up! 😉
