A few months ago, I had the pleasure of shooting this snowy mountainside Wedding in Canmore Alberta with Douglas and Rain and they were such a dream to work with! I absolutely loved how small and intimate their day was and it made for the most perfect snowy winter session. Alberta is one of my absolute favourite province’s to shoot in as I just find so much beauty in the snowy winter mountains, and Douglas and Rain definitely made this session special! Rain’s lace wedding dress was absolutely stunning and I loved their choice of dried florals! The darker earthy toned flowers against the snowy white backdrop really made them pop!
Since their wedding was so small and intimate, Douglas and Rain decided to get out of their wedding attire and into some more comfy winter clothes for some additional wedding photos and I loved that they did this! It’s so important to remember that your wedding day is your day and whatever your vision is of how you would like your day to go should be exactly what happens. We grabbed our skates and found a beautiful pond with the evergreen trees and snow covered mountains in the background and had a super intimate and candid moment.
As they day went on and we got chatting more, we actually realized that we grew up in the same small town! It’s so crazy how connected we were and I love that as we were getting to know each other more, our lives intertwined more than we thought! Needless to say I absolutely love how this session turned out and if your planning your own small wedding or elopement in Alberta I would love to be a part of it! Click here and let’s get in touch!

"I love my photos so much!
It's amazing! Even though there was hardly any snow for my winter wedding, Lydia still managed to capture some gorgeous off season shots of our big day! I'm absolutely in love with our pictures and we've received so many compliments from family and friends. When I was planning, one of the most common pieces of wedding advice I got from friends was "make sure you get a good photographer" and I'm so glad I listened!!"
Lydia was truly amazing! We have never had our photos taken professionally, and she coached us through the whole thing. We have now received our photo gallery back and just breath taking! In tears looking at how beautiful they are! Would definitely recommend using her to capture any occasion! It’s worth it alone for the memories we have from our experience!
After a very hectic wedding planning process, My husband and I never actually met Lydia in person before she shot our wedding. The minute she showed up I felt like I already knew her, and she made us all feel so at ease. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning, I still tear up when I look at them because Lydia really did such an amazing job capturing the whole day and all it’s special moments. I would 10/10 recommend Lydia to literally anybody for any occasion!
