The Diegel Family – Stettler Lifestyle Photography

It’s been quite some time since my last blog post! I took a creative break from my camera and I’m so excited to be out capturing memories again. These gorgeous ladies were such a blast to work with and I am so thrilled to be sharing images again!

I am now based out of Stettler, AB and am keen to start booking more lifestyle sessions in the area. I specialize in families, couples, engagements and newborns.

Thank you so much to the Diegel ladies for this awesome session! You ladies are so beautiful both inside and out! 2019-07-03_00022019-07-03_00032019-07-03_00042019-07-03_00052019-07-03_0001

When Lacey Met Derek – Wainwright Wedding Photography

This was certainly a wedding for the record books! Lacey and Derek’s day was filled with so much love from their friends and family. There was so much laughter and fun in every moment throughout the day. The weather was absolutely perfect (aside from a bit of wind – but the wedding party was a bunch of troopers!)

The Newton Family – Wainwright Lifestyle Photography

Paulette and I chatted for a few weeks as this session was coming up on the calendar about ‘dragging her boys out for photos.’ And we had a BLAST. I think the guys had a riot – they certainly had my face hurting with laughter! 2016-12-29_0005.jpg2016-12-29_0002.jpg2016-12-29_0003.jpg2016-12-29_0004.jpg2016-12-29_0006.jpg2016-12-29_0007.jpg2016-12-29_0001.jpgThanks Newton fam-jam!

When Caine Met Ashton – Vermilion Wedding Photography

Caine and Ashton said their vows on a beautiful Saturday evening in September. The full week before their wedding we not only saw an abundant amount of rain – but also an unheard of amount of snow for September. Even the day before the wedding things were still soaking wet and we zipped through their rehearsal in the rain. Luckily everything dried up quickly overnight and it was a perfect day for a wedding.

I met up with Ashton and her girls for getting ready photos Saturday morning and then we all got together before the ceremony for lunch and bridal party photos.

Ashton & Caine had a first look moment together before we started into the formal photos. I love this idea for couples who chose to have evening ceremonies!

When Ryan Met Taylor – Chauvin Wedding Photography

Taylor and Ryan got married on on of those August Saturday’s that you really don’t know if its going to be sunny or if it’s going to pour. People say it’s good luck for there to be some rain on your wedding day – so this couple must be lucky! It did rain – but it seemed to only rain when everyone was already indoors. It rained while the girls got ready, it rained during the ceremony and it even rained a bit while I was driving home. The only times it wasn’t raining was when we were outside taking photos!

When Jordan Met Lindsay – Drumheller Wedding Photography

A few months back when I received an e-mail from Jordan asking about my availability for his wedding date… I was over the top excited for him and his beautiful girl Lindsay! Three years ago I had the pleasure of capturing Jordan’s brother’s wedding as one of the first weddings I shot after graduating from the Design & Photography program at Grant MacEwan. At that time I wasn’t 100% sure if wedding photography was where I was going to direct my passion – but after that wedding I knew wedding portraiture was calling my name.

Fast forward three years and a few dozen weddings in between, it was a pretty exciting to work with this family again.

As we drove from the ceremony location to our formals location near Drumheller we made a couple quick stops at cute places we saw along the way. This adorable little church couldn’t have been a more perfect match with their colour scheme.

Miss Kelsey & Miss Alana – Wainwright Dance Portraits

Miss Kelsey and I have been friends for as long as I can remember – since 1995 to be exact. So to say that I wasn’t excited to meet up for some funky dance inspired photos of her and her dance pal Alana, would be a lie.

We started the session later in the evening than most sessions so we had some fun with the evening light.
