I have been looking forward to this wedding for a year and a half (since I did their engagement photos) and it turned out to be a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding.

It will be a while before I am done proofing these but I knew Terri & Andrew would appreciate a sneak peek so here are a few that caught my eye. I can’t say they are my favorites yet, because I haven’t had time to go through them all!

Almost done preparing this wedding. I know that Shelley is super anxious to see these so I thought I’d give a little sneak peek. It was a beautiful day for a wedding.

This is the bride & groom’s son, he was so cute!

Sneak peek… almost done. I should have your gallery up and running within the next day or two. The images turned out wonderfully. A beautiful day, a beautiful couple, beautiful ceremony… beautiful wedding party! Did I mention it was a beautiful wedding?

Sneak Peak of Bev & Rem… here you all go, something to tide you over until I’m done. I’m almost done I swear! Give me a few more days-it will be worth the wait.

Dawn & Rex are such a great couple. I really enjoyed shooting their wedding-both they and their wedding party were very fun, relaxed, and great to work with.

Unfortunately it was super windy on their big day, (even for Lethbridge it was super windy), so we had to do the formals inside. Despite that, I am very happy with what we got. Here’s a few fav portraits…

They are such a gorgeous couple, so good at posing for me…

I’ll share more of the wedding party later…

Oh my goodness I am so behind in posting recent sessions here. I’ll get back on it ASAP. Lots to share!

Anyways, I had the pleasure of photographing Rex & Dawn’s wedding this weekend, on what could very well be the windiest day I have ever experienced (definitely the windiest day I’ve had to photograph a wedding on!). Unfortunately it was just too windy and we got pushed inside, but I just wanted to let them (and their families know) that the pictures turned out fantastic and I can’t wait to proof them and show you all! Here is one I quickly pulled out to show…

I promised I’d share more from the recent fall wedding so here they are. I have so many favorites… hard to narrow it down.  First are some from before the ceremony-getting ready.

As this holiday season winds down for me (I know most of you are just
getting started!) I am feeling a bit nostalgic. I feel so blessed… I
have the best clients in the world. I really mean that.

I don’t
think I could feel more welcomed into your families, more appreciated,
more fulfilled in my career. I have met and worked with some of the
most amazing people this past year of business and this wonderful
husband and wife I’m about to share is no exception.

I
loved working with this couple. Tracy & Jamie… they are two of
the kindest, most genuine, warmest people I have ever met.
Photographing their wedding (and engagement) felt more like spending
the day with good friends than work. They are so real, so in love with
each other… so fun. I adore them! I cried during their ceremony (in
between shutter clicks!). It was such a lovely ceremony, so truthful,
so real, and I really felt that their love for each other and their
faith showed through in every aspect of the day. It seems kind of silly
that I cried but in all honestly, everything the minister said about
marriage and their relationship was so true and so wonderful and it
reminded me what a privilege it is to be invited to photograph a
wedding, one of the most joyful days in a couple’s life.

They really are this much in love, I barely had to pose them. They snuck kisses in between my direction during the formals. They could be wedding models, they are so good at being in love! I will share more from their wedding later this week, including some ceremony shots… they had 4 flower girls! Adorable!Wieler1176_1

Here are a few of my favorites from Sara & Aaron’s wedding on August 28/06.
You can view all the proofs on my website under client proofing (password, BENSON).

Sara was an absolutely stunning
bride… I loved her dress, loved her hair, and couldn’t stop thinking
about how that is how I wanted to look on my wedding day!

I just love the light in these portraits of Sara… it couldn’t have been more perfect.

Aaron wasn’t so bad looking himself!

And of course the wedding party was a lot of fun to work with…

Sara had mentioned back in January when she booked that the antlers might be coming along. Incorporating them into wedding portraits was a bit of a challenge, but made for some fun pictures!

This was my first wedding with a flowergirl and ringbearer, and I was very excited about it.

The ringbearer (or ringbaby) is the bride’s nephew… I love that little tiny tux!
