Johnston Family- Hot Chocolate Picnic- Lloydminster Family Photographer

When I first contacted Kelly about our photoshoot she had the idea of a “hot chocolate picnic” theme so we worked together to make that vision come to life!

I absolutely love how it turned out ❤

Here are James, Kelly, Jack and Sawyer Johnston…

Chris and Brooke Engagement-Lloydminster Wedding Photographer-Couples Session

It was an extremely cold and windy day in October when I met Chris and Brooke for their engagement session at Bud Miller Park.  I was worried we would have to cut the session short due to the cold but their connection and love for each other kept them warm and we ended up with some amazing images!

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this summer.

Congratulations on your engagement Chris and Brooke!

McGillis Wedding-Neilburg SK- Lloydminster Wedding Photographer

From the moment I met Colby and Erika, over coffee at Second Cup, I knew I was going to love photographing their wedding. They were both so relaxed and easy to talk to and their love for each other was very apparent!

While they told me about their locations and some of the ideas they had for the wedding day, I was silently doing a happy dance. It was going to be AMAZING!

Colby and Erika tied the knot on July 23rd 2016 in Neilburg, Saskatchewan. It was a beautiful, outdoor, country wedding with blue and red rustic decor. Their wedding party was super fun and out going which made for some really great shots!

A big thank you to my second shooter and assistant for the day, Kimberly Steier.

Congratulations Colby and Erika!
