Fall Prairies + Boho Love | Alberta Wedding Photography

Hey photography lovers!

So last year if you remember, I decided to do my first Alberta Stylized Wedding (Wild Romance) to inspire local brides with locations, venues, colours, and style. It was incredible and still some of my favourite images! Click the link above to visit that shoot!

This year, Events by Natalie Noel and I partnered up again to do a WHOLE different vibe… and guys- I am in LOVE. The colours and tones suited my style of photography to a tee. Natalie chose to go with a smokey and soft fall palette - and she killed it!!! Check out this unreal triangle setup she created and the FLORALS?? Come on!

Natalie also came up with an unreal Boho Picnic area nearby filled with dusty pinks and smokey blues- I gave her complete freedom to do what her heart desired since I believe that’s when people do their best work. I was honestly at a loss for words when I arrived and saw her creations! Check out this picnic setup!

We are both a fan of unique simplicity and not overdoing anything- Natalie’s style truly correlates with mine and it’s AWESOME to have a working relationship with her! Personally, I love geometric shapes in my work and a lot of symmetry. Can you tell?

Before I go any further, I have to say that before this shoot happened I was hoping for a real couple to come along- one morning I checked my email and got a sweet message from Krista! I think it’s safe to say I totally lost my cool and got SO excited. I could tell right away they were the PERFECT fit for my work and this styled session!

Krista + John got married a month before this session at their home and wanted their formal pictures taken on another date- they love landscapes and wanted something different and unique. Basically- we were on the same page right from the start!

These two are hilarious, relaxed, and aren’t afraid to be themselves. I had a blast hanging out with them and we laughed a LOT. Plus- it’s no secret that these two are really attractive <3 Her unique wedding dress just added so much to these photos- Krista truly has great taste!

I remember driving out to the location and being worried it was going to storm… but the photo gods were with me! The wind died down soon after arriving and the light was SO soft and lovely! For those of you who don’t know, when it’s cloudy on a wedding day I do a lot of happy dances and squeals…. yes squeals….

After the ceremony setup we strolled over to the picnic area- we snacked and had some sips of wine thanks to Natalie! By the way, these two were just easy to photograph and SO natural in case any one is wondering :) Special props to Natalie for hanging all those pieces of fabric on that tree- I don’t even know how she made this happen!

Keep scrolling for some sweet moments!

After this point in the session, we wondered to a nearby spot to get that sunset glow! We also set up another triangle structure overlooking the river. Let’s just say it was worth it!

One of my favourite things about the couple? Instead of wedding rings they opted for tattoos on their fingers <3 So different and special!

And because I have a soft spot for fields, on the way home we pulled over and wondered into a gorgeous field! What a perfect ending to the most perfect experience!!! Feast your eyes on these folks!

If you googled “the perfect couple” a photo of these two should come up <3 They really are beautiful together. Thank you SO much Krista + John for making this a session to remember!

A BIG thank you one last time to Events by Natalie Noel- this wouldn’t have been possible without you! Shout out to Salon 7 for doing Krista’s hair and BHLDN for making such a lovely gown!

I hope you all have pretty photography dreams tonight! I followed my heart with how to approach shooting this- as always, I kept to my crisp, natural, and colourful style. I hope you guys love them as much as me!

With love,
