The beautiful moment when Bethany’s father saw her in her dress just before the ceremony. She had planned to do first look with her Dad and it was so touching to see the excitement on his face!

Bethany & Ben met at the University of Alberta (so of course we did photos on campus), they are both teachers and share a love of music… and those are just a few of the things that make these two a great match!

Vanessa & Will. Hastings Lake Gardens & Yellowhead Brewery Wedding.

Yellowhead Brewery Wedding

Vanessa & Will’s wedding this July was incredible. They had a sweet ceremony at Hastings Lake Gardens and an awesome reception at Yellowhead Brewery.  I’ve been looking forward to this adorable couple’s wedding since I got to know them better at their engagement session last fall. They are so kind, down to earth and adventurous and their wedding day was romantic and fun from beginning to end.

Vanessa had been counting down the days until she became Mrs Cronin so there was a lot of joy and excitement in the air that morning. I love this moment when she opened a letter and gift from Will. Beautiful tears of joy.

Vanessa & Will’s ceremony was sweet and intimate. It was full of giggles and emotion. Vanessa was worried she would say ‘waffle wedded’ instead of ‘lawful wedded’ during the her wedding vows… she didn’t!

Vanessa and Will are outdoorsy and love being in the mountains. Whether it’s hiking, skiing or canoeing with their adopted pup Red.

SIlvertip Resort Wedding in Canmore Alberta

Rachel & Rich’s wedding at Silvertip Resort in Canmore was overflowing with emotion and good times. It was also a truly spectacular celebration of 17 years of love! These two have been together for as many years and their strong connection shows in their playfulness and affection.

Rich started off the weekend fun with a round of golf with his VIP guys at the beautiful Silvertip Resort. Couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the afternoon before the big day!

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!
