Tonia & Chris. Wedding at the Winspear Centre & Windermere Golf and Country Club.

Fun Edmonton Wedding Photographer Lauren Hannah Photography

I was lucky enough to be a part of this couple’s beautiful & fun wedding day in June. It was an incredible celebration from beginning to end! Tonia and Chris’ special day was an elegantly urban affair. Their venues merged the best of what Edmonton has to offer with their ceremony taking place at the modern Winspear Center and their reception being held at the Windermere Golf and Country Club in the heart of the city’s beautiful river valley. We also incorporated YEG’s downtown core in their wedding photos.

I’ve been looking forward to this couple’s wedding since their engagement session. They suggested we shoot at the then brand new Roger’s Place. I might risk a guess they were the first couple to have photos done there. That’s when I knew these two were one of a kind!

Tonia is creative and kind and Chris is ambitious and dynamic. Together they are stylish, gregarious and the perfect match.

Retro Engagement Session in Whitecourt Alberta

Retro Engagement Session in Whitecourt Alberta

Meghan & Chad’s retro engagement session in Whitecourt Alberta was so much fun to shoot! They brought their gorgeous retro orange Ford as well as so many fun props: Coca-cola, poodle skirts, records and old cameras (Meghan is also an amazing photographer)! It was so great to get to know these two, hear about their love story and spend a beautiful summer evening out in the country!

Had such a great engagement session with Avery & Cam this spring. They are an incredibly fun and one of a kind couple and it was such a pleasure to get to know them better.  I also got to meet their pup Hobbs with his larger than life personality! It was adorable to watch him happily carry around this stick which was twice his size.

Alissa & Erik. Canmore Wedding at Cornerstone Theatre.

Fun Canmore Wedding Photographer

I’ve known Alissa & Erik for a few years now after getting to know them at mutual friends’ destination wedding. I instantly got the vibe that they were very kind, sincere and fun loving.   I was absolutely thrilled when they got engaged and asked me to capture their Canmore wedding at Cornerstone Theatre! Alissa & Erik both love the mountains and they spend a lot of time in Canmore so it was the perfect setting for them to say their vows. They are such an incredible couple and I am so glad we got to be a part of their romantic and relaxed day!

I love the bride’s unique shoes and the fact that she wore heirloom jewelry from various family members. Those personal touches are so meaningful!

Emily & Tony. Millcreek Engagement session.

black and photo of couples walking in ravine during Millcreek engagement session

Emily and Tony are super sweet and playful together. They easily made each other laugh and chatted throughout our session. Often they were in their own world or sharing a private joke as I shot. Which suited me perfectly as I enjoyed catching a giggle from Emily and the twinkle in Tony’s eye when he looked at her.

It also made their Millcreek engagement session a lot of fun!  I really enjoyed spending the evening with these two and getting to know them a bit better. We had to reschedule a few times in April due to the weather however we finally got a beautiful evening.

The Oilers had a great run this year and these two got a chance to see a couple play-off games together! So cool!
I think they were joking about Emily pretending Tony was one of the players for this pose 🙂
