Just over 3 years ago, I photographed Mark and Chantel's wedding, where I met the rest of Chantel's family - The Traubs! I did their family session before the wedding, getting to know them all a bit, and they're all so, so awesome! So when Bizz, another one of the Traub girls, emailed me about shooting her wedding, I was so excited! Bizz and Alonso are one of the sweetest couples, and a ridiculous amount of perfect for each other. They're easy going, full of joy, and madly in love. Their day was exactly what I would have pictured for these two, and it was stunning. I'm so excited to show you a few/way too many pictures from their day!

A long, long time ago, in my first year of photographing weddings, I met Dan and Jodi. They were the first couple that I didn't know personally to trust me with their wedding photos, and it was more nerve wracking than I can ever express to you. But the day went amazingly, and since then, I've been watching on Facebook as their family of two started to grow! And now, 6 years later, they're a family of 5! Sweet little Jayden has been added to the mix, and I was over the moon to be able to photograph their beautiful family, and to hang out with Dan and Jodi again!
A little look at a whole lot of cuteness:
The Lake House. Sitting on Buffalo Lake, it's one of our favorite places to go! My family spent a week there this summer, and instead of making sure I had my Picture of the Day and calling it good, or taking the normal pictures I usually do, I decided to take it a step further. I spent the week taking pictures I would LOVE. Putting more effort in, being more creative, and taking pictures of the details. These pictures are my favorites, and show a bit of what might be one of our favourite vacations we've had!
We started things off with a couple days with my parents, which is always a win! Enjoying the water, getting a few things done around the property, picking saskatoon berries, and just hanging out. Once they were gone, it was just my fam, and we spent all of our time by the water! The weather was amazing, and the kids were always sad to have to come in. One day of rain meant playing games, eating extra snacks, watching the lightning and going to the water in the crazy wind! And for a couple, of course, swimming in their jeans. hah! The kids searched for butterflies, minnows and frogs, visited all of the pelicans, built sand castles and played pirates, and an evening was spent star gazing. My sister and her husband came with the boat for a day - win!!! We love those two dearly and always take up a chance to hang out with them! They also came the last day, along with another sister, her kids and their pup! These summer days with family - they're the days I love and want to never end. This place, these people, and our family being together - these are the memories I hold close.
This is the third time I've photographed the Cazemier Family, and I love them more every time! It's so crazy to watch these kids grow when you only see them once a year, and so fun to see how much they've changed. Little Aislynn went from a baby to a shy little girl, and this time a chatty little girl who can hold her own next to those boys, no problem! And those boys just went along with whatever she did. hah!
We met at the Cazemiers place, and at the end of the session did a bit of what the boys love most - dirt biking. So. Awesome. And now I need to find myself an acreage so we can have as much space for the kids to play around!
Guys, thanks so much for having me again! Hope you love your pictures!
Kaci and Jeremy came to visit the mountains - from Texas! Our landscapes are juuuust a touch different than theirs ;) so they came to check out our mountains. And since, of course, the mountains happen to be my happy place, I was more than excited to meet up with these two for a session to remember their trip.
