Katie and McKenzie’s wedding was on a gorgeous Fall day in Cochrane that was lush with rich Autumn colours. They were so fantastic to work with and easy going; they really put their trust in us and we appreciate that so much. Before the ceremony we did a First Look with just Katie and McKenzie and they said it helped so much to get rid of nervous jitters, while it gave us more time to focus on the whole wedding party during formal photos after the ceremony, and even some buffer time for them to relax before heading into their reception room. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and we’re honoured to have been able to capture it!

I love how their wedding style complemented the rustic beauty of the area.
Katie’s awesome sister Lauren and their adorably camera shy puppy.
We loved the stained glass windows in their church so we asked if we could sneak in this shot after the ceremony.
Love love love this light.
Dave took this behind the scenes photo of the above shots. I love ladders!
One of my fave group shots ever!
McKenzie requested some edgy shots and we were happy to oblige using some different lighting 🙂
We’re pretty much in love with this venue. We did all the formal photos in the beautiful valley behind, cutting down on travel time and giving us more time for photos!
The most hilarious groom’s acquiring of the garter ever! That’s a mouse trap on the bottom left, by the way.
We snuck away to the back view of the Ranchehouse for a couple of sunset shots…
I’ll leave you with the view from the Ranchehouse 🙂
