Chris + Kaytlin | Kayla Lynn Photography | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer

photo session with grande prairie wedding photographer with chris and kaytlin in grande prairie Alberta in the winter Chris and Kaytlin drove all way from Edmonton for their engagement session, here in Grande Prairie! Kaytlin emailed me a few months ago saying that she wanted winter engagement photos with her and Chris, so I told her my photographer secret; To book their engagement photos in March, when the weather is nice and warm!  I am SO glad we booked their engagement session in March because that means they are getting JUST as many images as I would deliver from a session on a warm summer day!  Although it was cloudy for most of their session, the +6 weather created an enjoyable photo session experience!

I really wanted to make their photos beautiful and unique, so I took them to a few fresh places that I LOVE!  The clouds were present for the majority of their session, however towards the last little bit of our time together, the beautiful sunlight began to roll in.  This made me excited.  Kaytlin was in her flowy maroon dress, Chris in his fancy suit as the sunlight peeked behind the caved in trees, surrounded by light snow – It truly couldn’t have been more dreamier than this!

I absolutely loved my time with Chris and Kaytlin!  They are so easy going and so much fun to be around.  I truly enjoyed getting to know them a bit more, and also chatting about all the exciting wedding plans ahead.  They are also so natural in front of the camera, I could photograph them all day, if I could!  I will admit, I felt a little sad as our session ended, but that makes me even MORE excited to capture their special day, this 2019!

Enjoy some of my many favorites of this adorable couple. I am so excited to see these two again on their wedding day, next summer! It’s going to be amazing!   romantic engagement photos elegant in grande prairie alberta with chris and kaytlin with deep maroon dress and suit with the winter snow in the background and creamy caved in trees at muskoseepi parkengagement photos with chris and kaytlin at sunset in the winter with lots of snow and sunset glow it looks super magical with maroon dress from le chateau professional wedding photographer alberta chris and kaytlin couple holding hands smiling along the winter path full of snow in the background and lots of trees with a bit of sun close up couple photo at engagement session chris kissing kaytlins forhead super romantic in grande prairie alberta at muskoseepi park engaged couple walking away and kissing bride has blond hair with maroon long maxi dress from le chateau happy engaged couple mwith winter photos with snow in the background close up of them smiling at the camera in dress and suit elegant and fancyengaged couple wearing dress and suit in grande prairie alberta for their photos in the winter with maxi dress couple at engagement session with grande prairie wedding photographer holding hands along the path of trees full of snow the bride with flowy long purple dress kaytlin with blond hair at her engagement session with grande prairie wedding photographer with snow in the background chris and kaytlin close up photo at their winter engagement session with kayla lynn photography groom nuzzle with lots of snow in the background and gorgeous creamy light chris and kaytlin at their engagement session in grande prairie black and white photo next to a tree in front of the muskoseepi bridge in grande prairie alberta with their wedding photographer grande prairie wedding photographer captures chris and kaytlin along winter path full of snow in grande prairie alberta holding hands and kissing in the air

Corwin + Amanda | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

Last Sunday, I had the privilege capturing Corwin’s and Amanda’s engagement photos, here in Grande Prairie!  Corwin and Amanda drove a couple hours away to Grande Prairie for their engagement session!  It was so nice seeing Amanda for the second time, and meeting Corwin for the first! I absolutely love engagement sessions because 1. We get to know each other a bit more and 2. because I get to teach my couples on how to pose! By the time the wedding day arrives, my couples already know how to pose, which creates a relaxed environment for photography!

Corwin proposed to Amanda when they were at a concert, last spring!  When their favorite song started playing, he pulled out the ring, asking Amanda to marry him.  Of course, she said yes!  It couldn’t have been more meaningful for Corwin to propose to Amanda in a place where they share their love for music.

Prior to their engagement session, I went out to our discussed engagement session location, just to check things out.  Sometimes when you do photos in March, the snow begins to melt, so it was important for me to check out the locations ahead of time, for safe places to shoot!  During my time scouting out the nearby locations, I came across this beautiful location I NEVER seen before!  This location was on top of a hill, overlooking the South Bear Creek with lots of pretty spruce trees in the background.  The light was also shining perfectly.  I was instantly excited and I knew this location was going to provide stunning, one-of-a-kind engagement photos!  Corwin and Amanda are getting married in Grande Cache, by the mountains, this upcoming summer, so I knew this location would be very suiting!

Everything was perfect with this sweet couple so in love, the +6 weather and the gorgeous sunset glow.  I also loved Amanda’s emerald green dress and red engagement dress she chose!  They were equally so stunning on her, I could not tell you which one I loved most!!  It especially looked super elegant against the snow-filled backdrop!

It was such an honor capturing these photos for this super sweet couple.  I enjoyed getting to know these two a bit more, while also capturing their personalities and beautiful smiles.  I truly cannot wait to go on a mini road trip to capture their mountain wedding in Grande Cache, next summer!

Cole + Justien

grande prairie couple for their wedding and engagement photographer wearing red dress and smiling at the camera close up photo beautiful

Winter engagement photos can be so dreamy. Despite the cold weather, I love how winter photos can look so magical and enchanting. A few months ago, I met Cole and Justien through a Skype call, and was even more excited to meet them in person for their engagement session here in Grande Prairie. These two are one of the sweetest couples you’ll ever meet. They have the kindest hearts and their friendliness makes you want to be around them all the time! I genuinely loved hanging out with this amazing couple and getting to know them more during their photos.

Towards the end of our session together, I brought Cole and Justien to one of my favorite winter locations, along the Bear Creek. The view was absolutely beautiful with a spectacular snow-filled backdrop. What made the view even more beautiful, was the shining sunset glow rolling in. It couldn’t have made my photographer’s heart more happier, knowing these photos were going to be some of my favorites! However, being that it was towards the end of the session, the cold breeze was rolling more than it ever was. Cole & Justien braved through the winter chills, and they did so amazing despite the weather. I don’t know how they did it, but they did so amazing. Justien was wearing her deep red dress with hair and makeup done by Jeweled, while Cole wore his menswear from RW&CO. I love how the deep red contrasted beautifully with all the snow surrounding them.

Justien’s future bridesmaid, Tamara, came to assist for their engagement session and it was so nice to meet her before their big day. I really can’t wait to meet the rest of the wedding party. Cole and Justien are genuinely such a beautiful couple inside and out. I cannot fully express how grateful I feel to be capturing memories that they will look back on for generations to come.

Cole & Justien, we are so excited to be capturing your wedding day, which is only in one month!!  You two are amazing. Enjoy some of my favorites within this blog post!

Your Photographer,

Kayla

Newfoundland Engagement JD + MeganSt John's Newfoundland Engagement Session

This blog post is special to me not only because I got to photograph an engagement session in Newfoundland, but I got to photograph my cousin’s engagement session! There is something so special about photographing someone you knew all of your life, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have been chosen as JD’s and Megan’s photographer! I remember visiting my cousin Megan as a kid, playing Monopoly (my favorite), exploring together in their backyard, quading and just having fun!  Visiting these two for a week definitely brought back those memories and I genuinely loved getting to know these two as a couple even more!

My time in Newfoundland was a bit chilly, but these two braved the high winds!! Megan had a cold AND she was wearing a dress! Despite the chilly winds, these two did so amazing!

This was my first time in Newfoundland and I can finally say I have been in the Easternmost part of Canada. Everything was beautiful from the rich colours, the unique architecture (I especially love the houses), the fresh air, deep blue water, and hearing the waves crash against the big rocks! It was all so amazing. While it was snowing in Grande Prairie, at the time, I was so surprised to see that it was still fall in Newfoundland. To maximize JD’s and Megan’s engagement session experience, we captured their photos at a nearby park with beautiful colorful leaves, while also leaving some time to capture some beautiful portraits of the two of them by the ocean. The white lighthouse was definitely one of my favorites. This included Cape Spear and Ferryland, a place that tells a part of JD’s and Megan’s love story!

JD and Megan thank you so much for having me capture your engagement photos at one of the most beautiful places on Earth. After spending a week with you two, I can see how perfect you two are for each other! You two are cat lovers, love board games (like me!) and always bringing joy in each other lives. I am very much looking forward to capturing your wedding day this coming July!

Your Cousin & Photographer,

Kayla

Wedding AlbumsCustom Wedding AlbumsAlberta Wedding Photographer

thick genuine leather photo album with grande prairie alberta wedding photographer kayla lynn photography with super thick pages and a custom photo on the front

I loved designing this beautiful high quality wedding album from Mark’s and Janaya’s wedding day, and I couldn’t be more happy on how it turned out! With each photo printed on smooth thick spreads and wrapped in top grain leather, these albums are the most special keepsake for any couples wedding day!

After the wedding day is over, I most often find that putting together a wedding album is hard for most couples. It takes a creative eye, patience and being able to curate the images in a beautiful and meaningful way. And most often, attempting to create an album with so many things on the go isn’t always possible. I realize most times couples need someone who will take care of everything, so that they don’t have to worry about a thing when it comes to creating and designing their own wedding album. Which is why I offer the whole wedding album experience for my couples, so they can leave the album designing and creating process up to me!

Wedding albums are amazing because they tell your story as a couple in a beautiful tangible way. So that one day they will be left as a special keepsake to show your children and grandchildren one day!

These wedding albums are so gorgeous!! The leather is SO soft in texture, and smells good too!

thick genuine leather wedding photo album made by kayla lynn photography is beautiful and a special keepsake

The pages are super thick and are SO smooth! I have never felt an album so smooth with the thickest pages in my entire life!

Grande PrairieChris + LinaKleskun Hills Engagement

grande prairie wedding photographer at alberta kleskun hills for chris and lina engagememt photos very classy with light pink dress
Everything about this engagement session was amazing. This blog is a special one because the bride-to-be in these images has been part of many photographs taken within the last couple years. You have never seen her before, because she is the one who has done makeup for many of my couples, brides and grads! She brings confidence and beauty in many of the amazing people I have photographed the last couple of year. So when I found out I was available for her wedding date in 2019, I was instantly excited.  I genuinely loved getting to know their story as a couple. I loved getting to know how these two met, how Chris proposed to his wife-to-be with their sweet daughter by the river, and hearing about all the exiting wedding plans ahead. By the time the engagement session rolled, I was photographing these memories for friends!

We also couldn’t have asked for a better evening for photos. Even though it had snowed the week prior to their session, the trees were still green and sun shining brighter than ever. Being blessed with this beautiful evening with gorgeous Kleskun Hills scenery and this adorable couple in love, resulted in beautiful memories photographed, together. I just loved capturing the love between these two!

From the moment I took your first engagement photo, I knew these were going to make for some magazine worthy images! You two are the sweetest and kindest couple. Capturing your engagement photos was so much fun. I feel so honored you invited me to capture this special season in your life. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do, Chris and Lina!

Lake Minnewanka BanffJames + Shauna2 Year Anniversary Photos

cute couple taking engagement photos with photographer wedding in banff and jasper at lake minnewankaFor those who have been asking me recently if I travel outside of Grande Prairie to do wedding, elopement or couple photos, my answer is YES! Some of those places include Jasper, Banff, the West Coast or even outside of Canada too! When Shauna and James were open to doing their anniversary photos in Banff, I was so excited to capture these photos for them! Clear blue water, fresh mountain air, light colored rocks and a gorgeous mountain backdrop, I knew this was going to make for some magazine worthy images. Jame’s navy blue suit, Shauna’s long blush pink chiffon dress and Wild Magnolia Floral’s gorgeous bouquet added a romantic, dreamy and elegant feel. James and Shauna love to hike in the mountains, so I knew they were going to LOVE having their photos taken in Banff, too!

I always find it amazing that the mountains live just a short distance away from Grande Prairie, while people from all across the world come to visit this beautiful place on earth, here in Alberta. The views are truly beautiful. We captured James and Shauna’s anniversary photos at Lake Minnewanka in Banff, and I am so glad we did! There is so much to explore, and everywhere you turn, there is always something new to discover. I could take photos there again, and the images would still have a new, fresh feel.

As much as my heart was overjoyed by the beautiful scenery in their photos, the part I love most was capturing real love and true joy between this couple since their wedding two years ago. It was refreshing capturing their love for adventure, while letting their personalities shine through these images. Thank you for the fun adventure, James & Shauna! Happy 2nd anniversary!

Grande PrairieRob + NicoleKleskun Hills Engagement

As soon as I met these two for their engagement session earlier this week, I knew it was going to be a great time! I absolutely LOVE the outfit colors they chose, Rob’s light blue shirt and Nicole’s dress being lavender purple with a hint of white. Nicole’s dress was just so flowy and simply gorgeous, I knew it was going to make for such a beautiful effect in their images. After waiting several months to capture this moment, I was so excited to finally meet these two for their engagement photos in the Grande Prairie area.

The entire session, I felt like I have known these two for so many years, when in reality this was our first and second time meeting each other!! Rob and Nicole have such beautiful smiles and are the kind of people you want to hang around all the time! We walked all across Kleskun Hills to some of my favorite locations, and I made sure they also got some fresh pictures in a couple new spots, too! They told me this was their first time getting their pictures taken professionally, and I was so impressed with the images captured of them, together –  I honestly would have never known if they didn’t tell me! As always, the sun shined beautifully between the sandy hills, and with this couple so in love, we created beautiful images for them to cherish for a lifetime.

Rob and Nicole, I had such an amazing time capturing this special time in your life being engaged!! You two are one of the most friendliest couples I have ever met, and I am so excited to capture your wedding day in September!! Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

Grande PrairieOge + MeredithBrick Architecture Engagement

When Meredith and Oge contacted me for their wedding photos back in December, I already knew they were such a sweet couple! These two are super laid back, love to laugh and have the most kindest hearts. As we met in our local Starbucks several months ago, they told me all about their engagement in Victoria, how they met and their beautiful wedding day vision. When they officially booked their wedding photos with me, I could hardly wait until we saw each other again for their engagement session! I just love these two!

Oge and Meredith’s smiles are contagious, and I just loved capturing their FIRST professional portraits of them together here in Grande Prairie! They did so amazing during our session together, especially considering all the mosquitoes that came our way and the chance of rain.  We went to two amazing locations for their session, and I am so glad we did! Our first location was taken place in the pretty greens with gorgeous light, while the second location having beautiful symmetrical brick architecture. The light pavement served as a natural reflector in their images, resulting in creamy, bright and light images I love!!

Oge and Meredith, thank you so much for being so awesome and allowing me to capture your first photos together being engaged!! You two have such joyful and kind hearts – I am so blessed to be a part of your wedding day this coming August!! It’s going to be such a beautiful day filled with love and joy. Hope you enjoy some of my favorites within this blog post! 🙂

Grande Prairie Wedding PhotographerSurya + VanessaBlue Jasper Mountain Engagement

jasper engagement photos elopement wedding at lake annette with beautiful blue water and a light grey dress with black suit

When these two asked me to photograph their engagement session in Jasper, I knew this was going to make for one amazing adventure!  These two are the sweetest couple you could imagine, super kind and so relatable. Not only am I excited to blog this session because how sweet of a couple these two are… but because we got to capture their photos in one of the most beautiful locations here in Canada! Although I have been to the Canadian Rockies many times in my life, I am always still amazed by the beauty of Jasper and the fact that the mountains is such a short distance away from Grande Prairie. Clear blue water, mountains all over and the fresh pine air… they could not have picked a better spot. We even snuck in a gorgeous bouquet made by The Enchanting Bouquet!

What may surprise you is that Jasper was not in original plans for their engagement session location. Vanessa expected she would not see her fiance, Surya, for the next 6 months… However, before Surya leaving to the Dominican for 6 months to pursue his dream playing baseball, he planned to come down to SURPRISE her along with an engagement session. Not too long after the engagement session was booked, Vanessa found out Surya was coming down to visit her. We attempted to convince the session would be held later next winter, but she didn’t believe us. However, it was because Vanessa knew Surya was coming down to visit her before he left for the Dominican, we were able to plan an exciting trip to the mountains for their engagement photos!! I consider that a very good thing! 😉

Our session together was quite the adventure!! We got stuck behind a train, drove to two gorgeous locations and went in ice cold mountain water towards the end of our session. And the best part, almost no mosquitoes! These two were such naturals in front of the camera , and I love how these two braved the cold mountain water with the most gorgeous pink sunset there was – They turned out to be some of my favorites!

Surya and Vanessa, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this exciting season in your life and for asking me to photograph your engagement photos in Jasper. I loved getting to know you two during our time together and I cannot wait to show you some of my favorites. I must admit, I felt a bit sad once our time together was over… you two are just so much fun to be with!! I hope you love these images as much as I do!

Special thanks to all the vendors that contributed to their engagement session! Christa with The Enchanting Bouquet created such a beautiful light pink bouquet, Makeup by Lina did beautiful Makeup for Vanessa and Edward’s Factory Outlet provided the suit for Surya.
